the x-files project: ep 1:11

the x-files

season 1, episode 11, “eve”

aired: 12.10.93

“eve” is a cool, creepy episode involving eugenics and exsanguinations with some government conspiracy thrown in. and we get to see scully and mulder feign domesticity for a moment. two men are killed by exsanguination three thousand miles apart at the exact same time. both men happen to have daughters who are identical. deep throat provides agent mulder with some insider information about a decades old secret government trial involving genetically engineered children called the litchfield experiment designed to create a superior soldier (hey, super soldiers!). the boys in the experiment were called ‘adam’ and the girls ‘eve.’ with deep throat’s help, the agents are able to visit with eve 6 at a prison for the criminally insane. eve 6 is in a creeptastic padded cell in a straightjacket and locked cuffs on her feet. she cowers from the light and her teeth are super nasty. there are pictures of her and the other eves when they were younger and they look exactly like the two daughters of the victims. one of the eves is at large and trying to continue the work of the litchfield experiment by interfering with in vitro pregnancies which explains the long lost twins in the case.

when mulder and scully take custody of the two girls it is like a little family on a road trip. well, until the girls try to poison them. creepy kids will always be entertaining and scary. this episode also prompted me to look up eugenics. i swear, watching “the x-files” makes you smarter. i don’t know how many rounds of balderdash i won utilizing scientific terms from the show. my favorite was always using “rye and other related grasses” from season four’s “never again.” worked like a charm every time. suckers.

rating: 3

wandering thoughts:

red lightning sounds cool.

mulder is all “ladies first” with the coffee. such a gentleman.

is deep throat a warriors fan??

they were literally just talking about how the poison was sweet and wouldn’t be detectable in soda and they aren’t suspicious of their super sweet sodas. sheesh. c’mon agents.

notable quotables:

m: “you might say he was running on empty.” oh, mulder jokes…

m: “abducted.” s: “kidnapped.” m: “po-tay-to, po-tah-to.”
