Season 8 Episode 10

It’s been a while since anyone mentioned Mulder so with the help of one of his old friends – Dr Charles Burks (the AV guy Mulder usually consults), Scully and Doggett go about finding a killer who cam over on a little squeaky cart from India, only quirk is that he arrived in a fat man’s body.

Scully gets a fright when during an autopsy, a little child pops out from a dead guys stomach and runs away, and Doggett has a hard time accepting little things could pop out of bodies despite seeing the freaky slug a few episodes back.

Scully gets all emotional when she attempts to keep an open mind and adopt Mulder’s approach to X-File solving, which only ends up in her shooting a kid. Luckily for her, the kid was actually the little Indian man (who also played the Oompa Loompa in Tim Burton’s Charlie And The Chocolate Factory).

After a long day of trying to find a guy who can change shape and become invisible, thanks to an ancient Indian cult – nothing gets solved because he’s somehow back in Mumbai doing it all over again.
