Storyline

Agent Scully is investigating a murder in a backwards town somewhere in Utah without the help of agent Doggett. This mistake would prove near fatal for Scully because the people in the town implant a deadly parasite into her back. It turns out that this parasite has been controlling everyone in the town and forcing them to do its bidding. Written by Ben Diamond

Disturbing
10 April 2006 | by See all my reviews

After two years of light-hearted X-Files, season eight comes up with a very gory Monster-of-the-Week episode that reminds viewers of season four's controversial Home. The storyline circles around a religious cult, who've trapped Scully in their isolated town and are preparing something nasty for her... and her unborn child. Not exactly an original idea, but another addition to the classic plot and Doggett doing anything he can to protect Scully really does make this episode worthwhile.

9/10 The X Files is on top form again, even if that does mean a new leading character, more gore and the overused Scully-in-great-danger plot, but in the end it works out okay.
