Episode Info

The Oscar-nominated film The Insider would seem to have been the principal inspiration for the April 16, 2000, X-Files episode "Brand X." It all begins with the gruesome death of a man who was poised to blow the whistle on unscrupulous business practices at the Morley Tobacco Company. Since the man was killed while under Mulder's protective custody, it is up to Scully to work from the outside in seeking a solution. (Can it be that the two agents' old nemesis, the Cigarette Smoking Man [William B. Davis], is somehow involved?)
