Storyline

After two college students are kidnapped on the one year anniversary of a similar kidnapping at a different school, Mulder is convinced that they are dealing with a serial killer. He's ready to deal with the case on his own as Scully has recently lost her dearly beloved father but she insists on working her way through this difficult time. Mulder is annoyed when a self-declared psychic who is soon to be executed in the gas chamber, Luther Lee Boggs, offers to give them information about the case in return for a permanent stay of execution. Mulder is convinced he's a sham as far as being a psychic goes and is convinced that Boggs is orchestrating the kidnappings using outsiders. Scully, who has had her own encounter with the supernatural recently, isn't so sure and takes Boggs far more seriously. Written by garykmcd

Outstanding performance
18 March 2012 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Although I do prefer the "alien myth" episodes, Beyond the Sea is a favorite. Brad Dourif is outstanding in his performance, not just in his "talking to the dead/describing where the killer is" but in showing the regret and fear of a man going to the gas chamber. It was also very nice to see Don Davis in the role as Scullys father. With very few lines, father and daughter showed a relationship between two people still in the process of learning to show emotions. After his great role in Twin Peaks, I found it comfortable to know he would also be a part of the X Files universe. Brad Dourif and Don Davis are the type of actors you can always count on, when it comes to great acting.
