Recap / The X-Files S05 E08 "Kitsunegari"


  • The Bus Came Back: Robert Patrick Modell from Pusher.
  • Foreign Language Title: Kitsunegari is Japanese for "Fox Hunt".
  • Mercy Kill: Modell's sister soothes him while he is in extreme pain and then he dies.
  • Monster of the Week. Sort of Myth Arc episode for a Monster of the Week much like (Squeeze - Tooms and Irrestible - Orison). In this case, Robert Patrick Modell. Subverted in that he is not the monster. His sister is.
  • Shout-Out: To Terminator 2 when Fox is confused between who is Scully and who is Modell's sister.
