The X-Files - S2:E12 "Aubrey"

[ S2:E11 "Excelsis Dei" <<< Season 2 >>> S2:E13 "Irresistible" ]

A detective in Aubrey, Missouri begins having psychic visions of a series of unsolved murders from fifty years ago, just as the murders start to begin anew. If you can say anything about these monster-of-the-week episodes this season, it's that they're getting more original. I don't know if this is intentional, but there definitely seems to be a trend in these episodes of Scully being more open to extreme possibilities than Mulder - and it feels kind of off. Maybe it's an aftereffect of her recent "experience" - getting in touch with her "women's intuition". It may be more than coincidence that these recent episodes have been dealing a lot with things like rape and pregnancy...

Memorable quotes:

Mulder: Listen to this, Scully. "One must wonder how these monsters are created." Chaney wrote this. "Did their home life mold them into creatures that must maim and kill, or are they demons from birth?"
Scully: That's poetic, but it doesn't help us much.

Mulder: I've often felt that dreams are answers to questions we haven't yet figured out how to ask.
