Extremely high Pages / Session from direct

Hello,

I have a question about my GA report. I found that the pageviews form direct  traffic has dramatically increased since last week, and the pages/sessions reaches 59. (it doesn't make sense because the website only has 9 pages. also, I did not change the website last week) 

The following is one of the user report from the user explorer (this one session created 379 pageviews from 12:07 AM to 3:54AM ). It looks weird, and I can't figure out what it is. Does anybody has any thought or suggestion on this?

Thanks.
