Recap: The X Files S 07 E 12 X Cops

  • As Himself: Many of the police officers were real L.A. County Sheriff's deputies.
  • Cross Over: With COPS.
  • I Know What You Fear: The monster of the week could sense people's worst fear and made them real. Some were literal monsters (a wasp man or a generic villainous killer). A man panicked because he thought his partner would leave him (but the monster ignored this because it was not a mortal fear). One woman died of exotic disease simply because Scully had mentioned its name.
  • Jitter Cam: The episode was filmed with hand-held cameras while running and moving and presented as a part of reality show. They used some of the actual crew from COPS to get the look and feel right.
