Case file: 3
Original Air Date: 4th November 1994
Mulder, while Scully is still missing, embarks on an investigation of 3 killers, out for blood..
Written by: Chris Ruppenthal, Glen Morgan & James Wong
Directed by: David Nutter
MOTW/Villain(s): The 3 - the unholy trinity.
"The Truth" tally: none, but Mulder loses his gun once, heh.
Music: score, "The Unheard Music" by X.
Mulder: "He who eats of my flesh and drinks of my blood shall have eternal life and I will raise him up on the last day." They have the same feeble grasp of the Bible as all those big-haired preachers do.
John, the Son: Don't you want to live forever?
Mulder: (considers) Well, not if drawstring pants come back into style.
Mulder: I'm familiar with porphyria. It's an affliction which causes lesions and blisters when skin is exposed to sunlight, not fourth degree burns. Sufferers may have a hema deficiency which can be supplemented by a small ingestion of blood, not the kind of bloodthirst this man had. It's probably ignorance of porphyria as a disease that led to the creation of vampire myths in Asia in the Middle Ages. I had dismissed the possibility of the actual existence of such a creature as myth.
Dr. Browning: (staring at Mulder throughout his speech) You are really upsetting me. On several levels.
Mulder: I can make a quarter appear from behind your ear.

- David was dating Perrey Reeves at the time of production.
- The music from the band X appears in a few other Chris Carter productions/episodes, which leads us to assume that he is a fan.
