Storyline

Scully and Mulder investigate the murder of a popular evangelist who claimed, falsely as it turns out, to bear the wounds Christ bore from the cross - stigmata. Mulder is aware that there have been other similar murders but when they are called to a nearby school, they meet Kevin Kryder, a 12 year-old who seems to genuinely show the signs of stigmata. The boy's father is in prison for child abuse and Mulder is skeptical about it all. Scully however struggles with her own religious views and comes to believe that the boy may be genuine. She also comes to believe that she is there to protect him. Written by garykmcd

Faith
19 July 2013 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

What sets this aside is that we have a role reversal where Scully becomes the believer and Mulder the one who questions stuff, which makes him come across as a colossal tool.

Scully's religious belief can be traced back to Beyond the Sea and having visions of her deceased father.

Other than that, this is usual and tired. Stigmata, fake and real touches of god. And a mysterious killer on the loose.

If you swap the context, here religious, it's the same detective stuff as any number of episodes: there's a lot of running between places, piecing a plot and trying to prevent the final crime. Facing larger powers at work.

Bo-ring. Go to Marjoe if you want a chilling look on faith, a 70s documentary on (then) the 'world's youngest minister'.
