"The Host" gets under way when a corpse is found in a Newark, NJ, sewer. Not long afterward, a sanitation worker is attacked. Assigned to investigate the fact that both victims bore the same strange mark on their necks, Mulder and Scully uncover evidence that the culprit is a vicious parasitic organism in human form. Written by X-Files creator Chris Carter, "The Host" was originally telecast on September 23, 1994.
