Worth your hour
7 June 2007 | by (DeKalb, Illinois, United States) – See all my reviews

An excellent episode, with a small-town conspiracy, the on-going mystery of Mulder's disappearance, a triumphant appearance for Agent Doggett, some native American spiritual lore, and a suspenseful plot that will make you forget about that sandwich you were going to make during commercials.

At the center of the action is a mysterious creature that....has some astonishing powers. Gradually we realize that the townspeople are in on this, and in fact, counting on it. At least some of them. But why? What do they want? What is the creature and what does IT want? By the end you'll know - and be privy to several amazing surprises....and have we found Mulder.....or not?
