Scully and Mulder are called into investigate a strange case of a man found sitting in his backyard having been exsanguinated and having two bite marks on his neck. The man's daughter, Teena, only remembers seeing what she calls red lighting. They've barely started the investigation when they learn there has been a virtually identical attack on the west coast. When they meet that man's daughter, Cindy, she is identical to Teena. Deep Throat provides Mulder with information about the Litchfield experiments, attempts at gene modification where children, named Adam and Eve, were produced. They trace a common link from the girls to Dr. Sally Kendrick who was fired for her position at a fertility clinic for experimenting in eugenics. The agents take the girls into protective custody but it's not the girls who need protecting. Written by garykmcd

You can't be serious?
17 August 2008 | by ametaphysicalsharkSee all my reviews

The only script by Chris Brancato and Kenneth Miller (thank God!), whose credentials include "Species II" and "Beverly Hills 90210" (eek!), the concept behind "Eve" is silly, and the execution does nothing to improve on the base idea, with little good dialogue, no good character moments, and lots and lots and LOTS of stupid, scientifically laughable technobabble.

I really expect more from "The X-Files". Seasons 2 through 8, even with some lulls in quality, rarely featured episodes as generally dumb as this one, and for all the praise for the twin girls' acting among fans, they're pretty laughable really. This is exactly the sort of episode that makes season one so much weaker than most seasons of this show, and considering that it's supposed to be a highlight of the season in terms of standalone episodes shows how weak this is, generally.
