This episode gets off to a great start; at first, it seems like the viewer is in for a routine vampire story, but it quickly becomes apparent that the victims' bloodloss is a much more believable crime. Through the first half of the story, the writing is very well-done, as little-by-little, the clues to the mystery unfold. Unfortunately, the closer the end is, the more the story breaks down and becomes silly. Murderous little girls, blood-draining/poisoning clones indeed. What was shaping up to be a fine mystery ends as an eye-rolling dud.
THIS EPISODE WANTS US TO BELIEVE IN: Government cloned gals with the urge to kill.
BELIEVABILITY RATING: 4/10
Would Mulder really taste some green stuff he happens to see sticking on a table in a restaurant just to see what it was? Did he learn that in the Academy?
