Directed by David Nutter
Mulder investigates a trio of serial killers who call themselves "the Father", "the Son" and "the Unholy Spirit", and who may be vampires.
- Arbitrary Skepticism: After one of the vampires burns alive on exposure to sunlight, Mulder — who had previously shown no trouble believing in the likes of aliens, superpowered mutants and poltergeists — sheepishly admits that he had rejected the existence of vampires out of hand. (Of course, next time he meets them, he knows better.)
- Hemo Erotic: The sexy vampire Kristen Kilar, who licks her own blood and blood of other people. She has some sexually explicit scenes, including the one where she is shaving shirtless Mulder.
- Not Quite Dead: The man who burns up in the police station comes back as a vampire.
- Our Vampires Are Different: In-Universe too, as they differ from the vampires we see in "Bad Blood".
- Perp Sweating: Mulder refuses to cover the windows unless the suspect talks. Interestingly in this case he doesn't believe that the man is a vampire (he can be seen in a mirror despite claiming otherwise), just that he's delusional and the sunlight will give him an excuse to confess.
- The Scully: Mulder flirts with this trope; he doesn't believe he's dealing with vampires until a subject spontaneously combusts in the sunlight.
- Tragic Keepsake: Mulder now wears Scully's gold cross.
- Vampires Own Night Clubs: Okay, the vampires don't seem to own the nightclub, but it does seem vampire-themed ("Club Tepes"?) and they hang out there.
- Who Wants to Live Forever?: Averted; the Vampire Wannabe says the price he'll pay for immortality won't seem too high when Mulder is an old man while he'll be as young as he is now.
- Written-In Absence: Scully, because of Gillian Anderson's pregnancy, for this episode.
