Mulder and Scully's latest case begins with the rape and battery of a nurse in a Massachusetts convalescent home. What makes it an X-File is her claim that her attacker was invisible. But upon their arrival, they discover that the unrest is not limited only to the live-in residents.

Goofs: In the scene where Nurse Michelle Charters is in the room of deceased patient "Mrs. T. Richardson" and the door slams closed, the pillow on the bed is at the top of the bed. In the next scene where Nurse Charters looks at the bed, the pillow is at the bottom of the bed. In the third scene where Nurse Charters grabs the bed rail and tries to pull it away from the door, the pillow is again at the top of the bed.

Trivia:The English translation of the title is "To the greatest glory of god".

  • This was originally conceived as an inter-network crossover between "The X-Files" and "Picket Fences," but was rewritten to stand alone when negotiations fell through.
