THE X-CAST continues with host Tony Black investigating Season 2 Episode 13, 'Irresistible'.

After a series of corpse mutilations in Minneapolis, Mulder and Scully arrive to investigate what Mulder soon comes to believe is an 'escalating fetishist', someone with a powerful compulsion to desecrate the dead who may be preparing for his first kill. At the same time, the fetishist--seemingly normal delivery man Donnie Pfaster--undergoes a transformation as his disturbing compulsion grows. As Mulder closes in, Scully becomes increasingly unnerved by a case which gets truly under her skin...

Joined by fellow X-Cast blogger and huge X-Files fan Carl Sweeney, Tony breaks down the beats of 'Irresistible', while also discussing its influences, including Chris Carter's series Millennium. Carl also answers the 5 Questions of X.
