In the confessional at her local church, Scully tells a priest that she is responsible for the death of young girl. In flashbacks, Scully and Mulder are called in when a young woman is found dead in the street not far from her home. No one has any idea how she got there as she was severely handicapped and was not mobile. Scully's parish priest asks her to look into the case as the girl's parents are also members of the parish. As the case progresses, Scully will come to face evil and must also come to terms with loss of her own daughter. Written by garykmcd

Religious - terrible episode about Scully again

Is this The Exorcist or End of Days? Why is this episode terrible in my opinion? I know a lot of X-Files fans will disagree with me but i hated it. In this episode Scully (Gillian Anderson) is the believer she belives in god and the devil. While Mulder (David Duchovny) is skeptical now. The roles are reverse I hated this it shoulden't have been reverse or diffrent period. The episode is hunt for 4 girls who are losing their souls. Time waster and stupid. This episode was waste of time and money. I don't get it how is this episode considerit a cult classic? Boring nonsense.

Supernatural which I once considered as a great show has religous episodes too and it sucks nowdays. This episode wasn't a monster of the week episode. Allen Coulter directed the episode he is a good director but this episode wasn't for him to direct. I don't like supernatural horror movies. I don't like The Exorcist movies they all suck. The only Exorcist movie of the franchise I like is The Exorcist III (1990) the only best movie of the franchise made. I like End of Days (1999) with Schwarzenegger and I like Jacob's Ladder (1990) those are the only good horror movies I like. All Souls is not an X-File episode and I don't get 7.7 ratings those people gaving higher votes does not know how to rate an episode. Terrible episode from start to finish. Disappointing even for an X-Files fan like me.
