Review - The X-Files Season 2 Episode 11 Excelsis Dei

Ghost rape, old people on shrooms? What the hell. So what really happened at the Excelsis Dei nursing home? I don't know and neither do the writers. There's no explanation for anything--not even an attempt--and the episode ends.

Most shows take rape very seriously, because it is a serious subject, but "Excelsis Dei" kind of skims past the issue, moving in the ghost story without addressing the woman who was rape. In this way, the episode felt more wrong than even "3." And the nice orderly gets deported while the others stay. Where's the justice in that?

Score: 7.4/10
