Special Agent Fox Mulder
Special Agent Dana Scully
Twin Peaks connection: Both David Duchovny and Kenneth Welsh, the villain for this episode, portrayed FBI agents in Twin Peaks.
Principal Setting: Loveland, Ohio.
Seeing as Scully was the only one there when the kidnapper died, it is highly unlikely that Mulder would be able to make the police statement on her behalf.
When the mother runs over the bad guy after he chases the apparition of her son you can see that Kevin isn't in the passenger seat. However he appears in the seat when the camera cuts to the car on the road.
Nowadays, its widely regarded that when Jesus was crucified he would have been nailed through his wrists, not his hands, as was the norm in his time. Stigmatics should therefore bleed from their wrists also.
Scully mentions Kevin being in two places at once, "...just like St. Ignatius was able to do in the Bible..." There is no Ignatius in the Bible. The earliest Ignatius was the third Bishop of Antioch, and no person in the New Testament appears in two places at once. Scully would know better, and the script supervisor could easily have checked this out.
After the agents meet with Kevin's father in the mental institute, Scully lists the medication that he is on: haloperidol, loxapine, and chlorpromazine make sense, but the fourth medication - LARGACTIL - is in error. Not only is it a brand-name of chlorpromazine, but it is not available in the USA, it is a CANADIAN drug!
The fact that one of these drugs is Canadian is mostly likely a nod to the fact that production takes place in Vancouver.
In the last few shots of Kevin and his bandaged hands you can see that there is no blood stain on the back of his hands, just on the palms.
Social Services were pretty quick to remove Kevin from his mother's custody, after a single incident when his mother was nowhere around.
Priest: Sometimes we must come full circle to find the truth. (Scully looks up) Does this surprise you?
Scully: No. Mostly it just makes me afraid.
Scully: Afraid that God is speaking... And that no one is listening.
Scully: Isn't a saint or a holy person just another term for someone abnormal?
Scully: But I see no wounds here, on his hands or otherwise.
Mulder: No, I think this is a case of too much faith...
(Mulder dips his finger in the Reverend's blood and tastes it)
and too much sugar... It's a fake.
Scully: I'm talking about events that defy explanation. Things that ... I believe helped me to save a young boy's life. But now I wonder if I saw them at all. If I didn't just imagine them.
Priest: Why do you doubt yourself?
Scully: Because my partner didn't see them. He didn't ... he didn't believe them. And usually he ... he believes without question.
Priest: Maybe they weren't meant for him to see. Maybe they were only meant for you.
Scully: Is that possible?
Priest: With the Lord, anything is possible. Perhaps you saw these things because you needed to.
Mulder: You never draw my bath.
This would be David Nutter's 15th and last direction of an X-Files episode. His first episode was "Ice."
The producers weren't satisfied with the priest's voice, so a new vocal track was added in postproduction using a different performer in LA.
The scene where Mulder and Scully are having a conversation with Mr. Kryder appears much shorter in the final version than in the original script. In the script Mr. Kryder begins to speak in tongues. Only Scully can understand him, even when he quotes a line from "The Day the Earth Stood Still".
Episode Title: Revelations
This is a reference to the Book of Revelations, the last book of the New Testament. This book describes the second coming of Jesus Christ, essentially the end of the world when, according to Christian tradition, God will divide those worthy for heaven from those worthy for hell and send them to their respective places.
