Storyline

Mulder and Scully investigate a series of bizarre deaths, all of which involved healthy young adults who died of massive coronaries after having sexual intercourse. Mulder believes the heart attacks were brought on by massive amounts of pheromones though Scully is somewhat skeptical. The geographic distribution of the murders leads them to Massachusetts and a religious cult known as the Kindred. The sect allows them into the group provided they surrender their weapons. They are also upset to learn that one of them may be committing murders in the outside world. They have a secret however, one that will astound the open-minded Mulder. Written by garykmcd

Well worth the watch
10 May 2006 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

This episode from the first season slightly edges towards controversy with the whole gender bending angle.I imagine there would have been a significant amount of editing before this was finished to appease censors.

The story itself is original and well written and the directing is complemented by the fine acting.(Nicholas Lea makes his X-Files debut though not as Agent Krycek but as a victim called Michael) I especially enjoyed the built up to and the ending itself.

Its different but enjoyable.Ignore any bad reviews you may hear.Watch it for yourself and make judgement then
