Trivia

In the middle of filming, a mother withdrew her baby from the cast during the final run-through of the "cursed-birth" scene. Although a fan of the show, as a devout Catholic she was uncomfortable with her child representing a demon. Director Rob Bowman assured her that the production staff understood her dilemma; the casting staff quickly called down and found a replacement in less than 45 minutes. It was the first time during the filming of the series that a cast-member withdrew for religious reasons. See more »

Goofs

During the scene that Wayne Weinsider uses the baby monitor to eavesdrop on Mulder's phone conversation with Scully, Wayne is able to hear both Mulder and Scully's voices. In reality, the monitor would only be able to pick up Mulder's side of the conversation, Scully's voice over the phone would be inaudible. See more »

Demon v.s. Demon
11 December 2006 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

While Mulder is working on the X Files undercover behind Spender's back, Scully is doing some background checks. Mulder visits a couple who had their baby abducted.

This is an episode that make us be in the shoes of those who had lost a baby, no matter how. It also shows us the power of a blind love from a wife towards his liar husband, and also how coward men or demons sometimes are.

Incredibly, the costumes are very bad in this episode, very bad at least for a series that stood out for it's special effects. The plot is, on the contrary, very good. Terms of Endearment is an episode that shows how evil can be anywhere and that evil can find some greater evil even in the most beautiful things.
