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

Trivia

Blue paint is yummy!
7 August 2007 | by (Sandy, UT, United States) – See all my reviews

Kitsunegari is a good sequel episode to Pusher from season 3. I loved the first one and it is on my list of favorites however this followup while good is not on that list. Probably the greatest redeeming quality of this episode is the guy covered in paint. That is such a terrible way to make someone kill themselves! I think the turning point for me is when this episode turns from Modell being the bad guy to his sister being the bad guy who is actually the woman that was supposedly in danger. I like the idea but it didn't quite work for me. I can't quite put my finger on it but I still can't give this episode higher than an 8/10.
