THE X-FILES "FOLIE A DEUX" #5X19

Original Air Date: 05/10/98

 

SYNOPSIS:

 

Mulder and Scully are called in to Assistant Director Skinner's office and handed the case of a company, VinylRight who received an audio tape from a man threatening violence. Mulder is puzzled as to why they have been given the case, until Skinner informs him that the man on the tape claims that a monster is preying on the company employees. Mulder unhappy at being given the assignment tells Scully he will look in to the case by himself. When Mulder arrives at the VinylRight offices, he is met by the manager Greg Pincus who plays him the audio tape. Mulder is struck by one phrase on the tape, 'hiding in the light'. He contacts Scully for help, asking her to search the X-files for the phrase. Scully finds it in another X-file case, of a Florida deacon who believing one of his parishioners was an evil presence, opened fire on them with an AK-47 one morning. On returning to the VinylRight offices, Mulder finds himself taken hostage by an armed employee, Gary Lambert, who believes his boss Pincus is a monster who is turning the other employees in to zombies. Gary demands a TV camera so that he can expose his boss to everyone. As Mulder looks at Pincus he sees him as a monster too. The SWAT team shoot Gary and the hostages are released. When Mulder accuses Pincus of being a monster, Skinner doubts Mulder's sanity and has him committed. While Scully believes it is a case of Folie a Deux, a shared madness brought on by tension of the hostage situation.
