Written by Chip Johannessen, the X-Files episode "Orison" features Scott Wilson as the title character, a prison chaplain who specializes in saving the souls of death-row inmates. Alas, in the case of necrophiliac serial killer Donnie Pfaster (Nick Chinlund), Rev. Orison's method of salvation includes assisting in Pfaster's jailbreak. Far from grateful, the escaped murderer makes a beeline to the only victim who ever escaped death at his hands -- Agent Scully. "Orison" was originally telecast January 9, 2000.
