Demon v.s. Demon
11 December 2006 | by 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.
