Storyline

Scully and Mulder are called into the investigation of a series of murders where the victims were all psychics of some sort. A tea leaf reader, tarot card reader and palm reader are all the apparent victims of a serial killer. The local police have brought in a well-known TV psychic that Mulder finds laughable. He does come across Clyde Bruckman, an insurance salesman who may be ca genuine psychic. While Scully is appropriately skeptical, Mulder realizes that Bruckman can only see one thing - how people will die. Written by garykmcd

Mulder: Is he?
Clyde Bruckman: I hope not! I've seen some of the things he's seen.
Mulder: Like what, what does he see?
[cut to shot of Mulder chasing after someone]
Clyde Bruckman: You. He sees you. Trying to catch him.

Definitely one of the best X-Files episodes ever
4 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Peter Boyle was amazing in this episode and the way Moulder was almost like a little kid absolutely amazed. It was adorable. A very fun episode to watch.

Peter Boyle is always amazing in everything he does but in this episode in particular he gets to act in a very unusual role while maintaining his crazy old man who's adorable in an annoying way and of course just a little bit creepy.

Like the guy above me said, i don't have much else to say except that even if you aren't into the X-Files, this episode will make you want to watch at least a few more episodes.
