Recap: The X Files S 04 E 06 Sanguinarium
  • The Bad Guy Wins
  • Decoy Damsel: Dr. Jack Franklin frames Nurse Waite by pretending to be her victim.
  • Deadly Doctor: Subverted. All the doctors are committing murders due to manipulation by devil worship.
    • Dr. Richard Cox/Dr. Jack Franklin/Dr. Hartman is this trope played straight.
  • Good All Along / Red Herring: Nurse Waite is trying to stop the murders instead of committing them.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: Richard Beymer plays Dr. Jack Franklin who was in Twin Peaks with David Duchovny.
  • Gory Discretion Shot: Averted mostly. Remarkably gory for an X-Files episode with scenes of face peeling and fat being sucked out of a belly and other squicky stuff.
  • Thanatos Gambit: Dr. Franklin aims to peel his face off and die, getting the face of a different person due to devil worship.
