    Continued 1x03, marking the return of the mutant Eugene Tooms, soon after leaving the chair for good behavior. It is a dark episode, almost all the action takes place at night, and very tense in the possibility of a fresh onslaught. The visual effects (the victim is colored, the world would discolor) are great, and besides providing the aesthetic vision of the world from the eyes of Eugene, still gives a whole dynamic look very nice. Also contains a nice homage to the movie "The Fly ", with the protagonist screaming in horror at seeing a creature so hideous, it's hard to believe that a human being had been (or still is?). So spare some space for the first signs of love between Mulder and Scully, but nothing really relevant. CSM also gives the guys, but only speak two or three sentences is unimportant and smoking his cigarette, and discreet. In the end, the plot that was very satisfying gives a heavy forced "trash", breaking a little suspense that permeated the story so far. Anyway, another great episode of "The X-Files," which fulfills almost everything it promises.
