Synopsis by Hal Erickson
A staged stunt on a cable TV reality show has tragic consequences for a teenage daredevil. Doggett (Robert Patrick) and Reyes (Annabeth Gish) are called in to investigate when evidence shows that the teen's death was not due to the stunt. This theory seems to be verified when thousands of flies begin swarming from the dead boy's eye sockets. Not surprisingly, Scully is compelled to again leave academia behind to help her two former X-Files colleagues. "Lord of the Flies" was first broadcast on December 16, 2001.
