Typical loner
Written by Jack Anderson on 2016-01-01
 (5/10)
NOT AMBITIOUS...
"2Shy" is not an ambitious episode. It is a typical standalone episode with a classic monster killing to survive. It's the exact same thing as Tooms, but in less interesting. Scully even clearly states that this isn't a fresh story, but the story of "a fat-sucking vampire."
Even the end is quite similar to the "Squeeze" episode. Of course, the killer is trying to kill Scully, precisely like at the end of "Squeeze".

BUT WELL PRODUCED
But because this is season 3 and because David Nutter is an outstanding director, the episode is actually good. If this was shot in season one, the episode may not have been so great.

BLIND GIRL
Also, the set up of the script is pretty good. I simply loved the part of the blind girl interacting with the killer and facing the death of her mother.

SEXISM
One thing I really think was too much and didn't add anything to the story was the two minutes about sexism. The scene in which the inspector is surprised to see that Scully will perform the autopsy. This didn't really connect with the story itself.

INTERNET IN 1995
The episode is using the theme of Internet and social media long before social media even existed. In this case, the characters are using private chatrooms.

SOUNDTRACK
At the end of the episode, Mark Snow is trying to come up with original and creepy sounds. I don't think that the result was so great.

SUMMARY
Typical X-Files loner episode. I give it a 5 out of 10.
