Season 4 Episode 2

Now that season 4 has started, the X-Files moves away from the usual UFO story to give you some weird freaks! This episode sees Mulder and Scully chasing a family of messed up genetic freak like brothers who keep their mum under the bed, and go out killing whoever they feel like. Scully gets her gun out when chasing them around a booby-trapped house, and Mulder manages to create a diversion by letting all the cattle out of it’s pen (to which he confesses he actually enjoys). Not much else happened in this episode. Perhaps one of the first times we see Scully think about children, but if only a small, passing thought. Mulder opens up to his childhood days of playing in the fields, and being free and safe – If he ever settles down, he’ll do it somewhere like this, old little American town – but only if it can get the Nicks game.
