Storyline

Scully and Mulder are called in when a businessman is found dead in his office. The doors and windows were locked from the inside and the only other possible opening is an extraordinarily small air vent, which no person could possibly go through. The dead man also had his liver torn out. There is also a strange elongated fingerprint on the vent which leads Mulder to find two sets of old cases the first dating to 30 years ago and the other 30 years before that. All of the victims had their livers torn out of their bodies. More importantly, the elongated fingerprint is an exact match, despite the long interval in between events. Mulder is convinced that the killer is the same man who comes out of hibernation every 30 years to feed his appetites. Written by garykmcd

Wow. I remember the first I watched this episode (I was around 12 back then), I thought X Files was just a show about a guy trying to prove the existence of extraterrestrial life. I was so not ready or prepare for this. After watching it, I just couldn't sleep alone for 3 days. This is such a great episode. So scary and really violent. I still can't believe they aired that on national television. Back then, it was revolutionary (especially in France where french TVseries are just crap). This is the first episode written by Glen Morgan and James Wong, my favorite writers on the show. We see for the first time that Mulder is not appreciate by his colleagues. Ther are some nice moments too between Mulder and Scully; and the end is really really disturbing, especially if you are a 12 years old. One of the best episode ever. A must see.
