Mulder and Scully are called in by a Sheriff who believes a local cult is subjecting some of the town's teenagers to some type of ritual. Several of the teens have appeared after a night in the woods, semi-naked with 'He is One' written on their backs. The Sheriff is convinced that the turban-wearing cult that has made their home in the area is responsible and wants the agents to help him get the evidence he needs. As the agents gather evidence however, they begin to think something far more sinister is going on. All of the teens involved were treated by the same doctor and none had any history of normal childhood disease. They are certain he was experimenting on the them but neither are prepared for Scully's revelation - one of the men she sees in town is the man who killed Deep Throat. Written by garykmcd

Smilie's tantra
10 June 2013 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

In narrative terms, X-files has been an astounding failure so far; twenty-something episodes, and we basically know that Mulder lost his sister and wants to believe, and Scully lost her father and is sceptical.

It boggles the mind that we're only at around this time beginning to know a third character outside the two with any dimension at all, Skinner.

It boggles the mind that in place of sketching a broader world for the main couple, we've chased around the dumbest monsters for episode after episode. That Scully keeps asserting logical explanations in spite of the many encounters she's had, that we've seen vampires, ghosts, werewolves and alien hybrids and the show still tries to entertain some ambiguity. And so on in a growing list of contrivances.

Here, perhaps for the first time, we have something of what the show may have been in capable hands. It's all in the prologue—a baffling disappearance and discovery, with someone watching from behind a mirror, responsible for some part of it but we're not sure which. I don't mind that we go on to stitch on that the usual 'secret experiment' and 'government cover-up' plots, because pieces of the larger narrative just fall from the sky as in a film noir.

But we actually seen nothing extraordinary, we are small pawns tossed about in a larger game of control. Hints of broader mystery. Why was the man watching, filming? This is never addressed in its sexual dimension, which only adds. Both leads in the show are so asexual, it is something they'd overlook. It is a powerful causality outside the detective plot, the disappearances linked to secret experiments linked to secret watching each one generating the next level because there is so much pent-up energy in the gears of this world.
