Storyline

Scully and Mulder investigate a series of accidents at a VA hospital in Virginia. Lt. Col. Victor Stans has tried several times to kill himself, but has always survived claiming, "He won't let me die." He says that he sees the shadow-like outline of a soldier who is mentally and physically torturing him. As they look into the case they learn that Stans' family died in a house fire some 6 months before. More revealing is the fact that other soldiers' families have also died in similar fires. Mulder initially suspects a cover up on the part of General Thomas Callahan, but comes to realize that something far more sinister is at work. He believes that one of the patients is using astral projection to seek revenge on those around him. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

Goofs

Both the hospital administrator (general) and his female adjutant are shown wearing infantry officer branch insignia (crossed rifles). Hospital staff would be medical or medical service branch. Also, at the time the story takes place, a female soldier would not be allowed in the infantry branch. Shoulder insignia on general is incorrectly placed (too low). See more »

Walk This Way
28 May 2006 | by (Roy, Utah) – See all my reviews

First of all, props goes to the x-files special effects department for creating a quadruple amputee in Rappo, the disgruntled vet. I saw how they made Gary Sinise legless in Forrest Gump, but it still amazes me to see the x-files do it with a smaller budget. That character is totally believable as a quadruple amputee. While I am talking about special effects, I will mention that the effect of the phantom soldier is done very well too. When he is running through the stream and attacking the captain in the swimming pool, they're both quite convincing. Ian Tracey gives a great performance as the quadruple amputee Rappo. You can just feel his bitterness consuming him. It's hard to believe he really has all his limbs intact. Astral projection is an interesting term we learn in this episode to describe what is happening with Rappo. The Walk is a good, solid episode to enjoy.
