However, Mulder discovers the traces which are moving in the tracks of an unknown animal. Scully rejects the testimony of Parker, but Mulder shows her was found next to a large piece of human skin.

Sheriff Charles Tscan allows Scully to conduct a surface inspection of the body Gudesake, but forbids to do an autopsy, despite the fact that Mulder discovers the dead long fangs.

The next morning, naked Laila find unconscious in the nearby woods, and Scully takes him to the hospital.

Ish I'm sure I saw a creation in his youth, but was too scared to destroy it. He also says that the Manitou possesses approximately every eight years, which corresponds to the dates of previous murders. Gwen, who saw the night of the murder Parker, Sr., terrified, tries to run away, stole a car Isha, but Tscany stops her.

The doctor calls Mulder, telling that, according to the results of the analyses in the stomach of Layla Parker had traces of his blood father, which could get there only by being ingested. Scully had been taken away written out of the Parker home, and Mulder Tscany hurry to the ranch. Meanwhile, Parker is transformed into Manitou and tries to kill Scully, but the arrival of Mulder and Tscany causes him to hide. Searching the house, Mulder finds Scully unharmed, but then them trying to attack Manitou, which kills Tscany.

Phenomena in artwork: Werewolf

Werewolves in the episode are a representative of an Indian tribe, as well as the man he wounded. Unlike traditional werewolves, they change appearance during the full moon, and every night. The being that become unhappy, has bestial rage and huge force, completely covered with hair, has long fangs and sharp claws. Despite the animal paws, move shifters on the back as people.

Indians associate werewolves with Manitou spirit of the forest, attacking people and causing them to transform into animals. The one who hurts Manitou, he becomes manitu (what happens with the previous bearer of the spirit, unknown). The lycanthropy can also be passed down from parents to children. For some reason, the period of activity of Manitou is 8 years.

The process of conversion from human to animal is very painful and is accompanied by the shedding of human skin, from under which appears the animal wool. Killing Manitou does not require any special tools (silver bullets, etc.) for that regular firearms.
