Storyline

Mulder and Scully are in Minneapolis on the trail of a serial killer who likes to collect trophies from his victims. The killer is Donald Addie Pfaster, who goes by Donnie. He likes young women, especially blonds and he keeps a lock of their hair or their finger nails as trophies. He's also taken to digging up graves to add to his collection. Scully is having a very hard time dealing with the facts of the case and isn't functioning very well. She has a lot more on her plate however when Donnie sees her and decides to make her his next victim. Written by garykmcd

Quotes

Mulder: It's been said that fear of the unknown is an irrational response to the excesses of the imagination. But our fear of the everyday, of the lurking stranger and the sound of footfalls on the stairs, the fear of violent death and the primitive impulse to survive, are as frightening as any X-File; as real as the acceptance that it could happen to you.

the x: files, 2.13: Irresistible , norman bates once again.
18 May 2012 | by pushkarmumbaiSee all my reviews

19 may, 2012. 17 years since the x files S2.13/ Irresistible, was aired. people keep watching x files on rentals. such is the magic. 'irresistible' was one of the creepiest from Chris carter's arsenal.the character of 'death fetishist' Donald Pfaster is Norman Bates of Minnesota. he steals the show. he is cold, fearless and daring. a killer who likes to asks 'what shampoo you use' before it gets rid of the victims. the story plays on brilliant 'light n shadow' imagery and against the isolation of the Great White North. the character was so creepy, it was brought back again in season 7:"Orison". one of the best 5 episodes for me!
