Episode Info

This X-Files episode was one of the first network-TV examples of the now-familiar plot device of "murder by Internet." This time around, Mulder and Scully are put on the trail of a serial killer who preys on heavyset women (à la The Silence of the Lambs). Once the agents determine that the murderer meets his victims via a computer bulletin board, they cook up a scheme to turn the villain's M.O. against him. Written by Jeffrey Vlaming, "2Shy" was originally telecast on November 3, 1995.
