Storyline

Robert Modell (see The X-Files: Pusher (1996) ) seems to have recovered from his gunshot wounds and is again using his power of suggestion to get his victims to see things that are not there. Scully and Assistant Director Skinner are particularly concerned as they assume Modell is out to take his revenge on Mulder. As the murder count rises however, Mulder however realizes that Modell may not not be the killer this time around and may have another purpose in mind. Written by garykmcd

Fox Hunt
31 October 2006 | by (Roy, Utah) – See all my reviews

Kitsunegari is a great follow-up to season three's Pusher, one of the best x-files from season three. Kitsunegari loses some of the charm and originality from the first one, but it is still very good in its own right. Modell has escaped from prison and is supposedly killing again. But this time around, he is not following the same M.O., killing law enforcement officers with abandon. He appears to want to help Mulder, but Mulder, as usual, is the only one who believes him, while Scully and Skinner think Mulder is nuts for trusting Modell. It's hard to believe that Modell has suddenly stopped becoming a murderer just because Mulder "beat" him, and it's hard to believe that his long-lost sister suddenly becomes a murderer when she finds out about him. But if you put that aside, this becomes a very entertaining episode. The visual of the Nathan Bowman covered in Cerulean Blue paint is very striking. The climax is not to be missed as Mulder thinks Scully has shot herself, and he has his gun on Linda Bowman, ready to shoot her, who is telling him that she is really Scully. And at the end of the episode, Mulder offers a poignant line to Scully, which I'm not sure if I understand it myself, after she tells him that he won Linda's game: "How come I feel like I lost?"
