Mulder and Scully are called in by the Buffalo Police Department after an experienced detective, Rudy Barbala, jumped to his death through a window from the upper floor of the 14th precinct. He was interviewing a young girl at the time, Michelle Bishop, but there was no one else in the room with them. Mulder immediately begins to suspect that Michelle may have telekinetic powers, something that seems to be proven when Scully finds a large burn mark on Barbala's body much as Mulder as predicted. Michelle says there was a ghost in the room with them and her rendition of him leads then to the case of dead detective Charlie Morris, who was killed in a police raid. In fact,Charlie may be back and seeking revenge against the policemen who got rid of him. Written by
Did You Know?
The room used for the opening scene when Detective Barbala is thrown from a window had two windows side-by-side, and one had been replaced with sugar glass for the stunt. When the false window was blown out, the real glass window beside the false one had also accidentally been blown out. They decided to show in the next shot Barbala's dog lying beside his body to explain the second window breaking. See more
