"The biggest change was that Aladdin had a mother - with a nice ballad. But we lost the mother and pushed the romance up front."  -Ron Clements, co-producer, co-director and co-writer of Disney's Aladdin

X FILES EMILY

SYNOPSIS:
A cryptic phone call leads Scully to the scene of a woman’s suicide. There, she encounters the dead woman’s adopted daughter - a young girl named Emily, who bears an uncanny resemblance to Scully’s sister Melissa. In an effort to identify the child’s biological mother, Scully conducts a DNA test and makes an unfathomable discovery… Meanwhile, forensic clues have surfaced suggesting Emily’s mother may have been murdered. But when the prime suspect is also killed, Mulder begins to suspect that powerful, unseen forces are at work. The deaths appear to be part of a cover-up of a secret experiment involving genetically engineered children. The purpose of this experiment remains a mystery to Mulder, but the identities of its unwitting test subjects becomes chillingly clear.

"Like all X Files episodes, Emily has more twists than a corkscrew, with Scully and Mulder in the middle, trying to find out what the hell is going on. This episode centres on Scully and her family and their connection with a baffling death. It answers questions that are posed which we do not expect answers for, and dances around the underlying issue, which is not initially obvious. If you like the X Files, you will enjoy this episode as it reveals new depths - to Scully’s character in particular. This is more her story and we do not see much of Mulder at all. Emily has provided one more reason for me to want to see what happens next…"
