    This episode was completely unoriginal and uninspired. Again, the only thing that kept me alive were the funny little quips between Mulder and Scully. I suppose it was suspenseful when Mulder was almost killed by BJ, but then I was just creeped out because I have a thing about possessed voices. I felt that our dynamic duo were picking on an old man who had done his time, surely still evil but barely able to breathe and just biding his time in front of the tv until he died. There was also an interminable amount of time, it seemed to me, of the agents just staring at pictures and sitting in the hotel room or the lab, thinking. Not much action beyond driving and that last scene. I can't decide if the woman who played BJ was good or terrible. Either she was overacting or she was convincing, but it isn't really clear to me because I was distracted by her growing and disappearing rash on her face. Was that supposed to be like the one on Cokely's face? Again, a big fan of continuity..
