Scully and Mulder investigate the death of a newborn child found in a shallow grave on the outskirts of a small town. Mulder loves the locale and thinks it's small-town America at its best. It even has a sheriff by the name of Andy Taylor. Sheriff Taylor is highly reluctant to investigate the family nearest where the baby was found however. He tells the agents that the three brothers who live there are all simple, the product of generations of inbreeding in the Peacock family. When the Sheriff is killed, all evidence points to the Peacocks and the FBI agents are shocked at what they find in the house. Written by
Did You Know?
During a 2016 interview on Kumail Nanjiani's podcast "The X-Files Files," "X-Files" writer and "Millennium" showrunner Glen Morgan said that because "Millennium"'s ratings were low, they had the idea to do a "Millennium" episode involving the Peacock family characters from the "X-Files" episode "Home," for which Morgan was the cowriter. The original airing of "Home" had been controversial, but since it was also one of the highest-rated and most-talked-about "X-Files" episodes ever, Morgan thought the return of the characters might boost "Millennium"'s ratings. They got as far as clearing the idea with Peter Roth (then the head of FOX TV) and Karin Konoval, the actress who played Mrs. Peacock, but then Roth called Morgan back and said that "News Corp, FOX, lobbyists in Washington...somehow got wind and said 'those characters never appear on television again.'"

What about your family?
Well, aside from the need for corrective lenses and a tendency to be abducted by extraterrestrials involved in an international governmental conspiracy, the Mulder family passes genetic muster.
