  • Is this what it takes to climb the ladder, Colton? Then I can't wait till you fall off and land on your ass.

    One of Scully's friends from the Academy asks for her help on a series of murders that involve no clear point of entry and Scully and Mulder discover similar cases in the X-Files since 1903. Eventually, Scully's profile leads the FBI to a suspect named Eugene Victor Tooms. Eugene Tooms is a liver-eating mutant with the ability to squeeze himself into the smallest places and now is after Scully. Squeeze is a fascinating episode that blends horror with the procedural police drama and Doug Hutchison creates one of the most recognisable and scary villains of the series. It was the episode that hooked me to the show and remains one of my favorites.
