Talitha Cumi


Episode Info

The third season of X-Files came to its traditional cliffhanger conclusion with "Talitha Cumi." Written by Chris Carter, the episode begins with Mulder and Scully investigating still another case of paranormal activity. This time, it's personal: Mulder hopes that by locating Jeremiah Smith (Roy Thinnes), an alien with miraculously curative powers, he will be able to help his mother, who has been felled by a stroke. Along the way, Mulder makes the startling discovery that his mother is intimately acquainted with the agents' old nemesis, the Cigarette Smoking Man (William B. Davis). Originally telecast May 17, 1996, "Talitha Cumi" would not be resolved until the inaugural fourth-season episode, "Herrenvolk," in October of that year.
