Recap: The X Files S 01 E 19 Shapes
A Native American boy, Joe Goodensnake, is shot in what looks like a land dispute with local rancher Jim Parker and his son Lyle. Mulder and Scully are called in to the Trego Indian reservation in Montana to investigate, leading to clashes with the locals who distrust the federal government, including a sheriff who was at the Wounded Knee siege in 1973. Between the rancher's story that he mistook the boy for a wild animal, some strange tracks and shed skin found at the crime scene, and local legends about a beast that haunts the wilderness and mauls people, Mulder recognizes links to the original X-file. Could an old Indian legend have taken life again — a Manitou that transforms its host into a raging beast? And what person, human and ignorant by day, hides the Manitou now?
