Season 2 Episode 15

Voodoo is the theme of the next episode, Deep Throats friend pops in to inform Mulder of problems in a local military base where immigrants are being subjected to cruel treatment. As a revenge, marines on the base start dying in strange voodoo cases. As it seems the Military are the bad guys in the X-Files legacy, they cover up the strange occurrences and things seem to get swept under the carpet. However things turn out for the best when Mulder and Scully succumb to the effects of voodoo, Scully witnesses someone bursting out of her hand, and grabbing her throat, while Mulder feels the pain of a stab wound.

As usual though, there is a plausible explanation in the form of a poison found in puffer fish.
