Storyline

Mulder and Scully assist local police when they suspect woman they arrested at a murder scene, Marty Glenn, is the murderer. The problem is that the woman is blind. Mulder finds it all very unlikely That a woman who has been blind from birth could actually commit the crime in question. Matty knows a great deal about the crime scene and can describe much of it in detail however. Testing confirms her blindness but Mulder begins to think that she is "seeing" things in a far different way than a normal human being can. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

Mulder's line "even if the gloves do fit - you can still acquit", a reference to the 'O. J. Simpson' murder case, was improvised by David Duchovny during filming. See more »

Goofs

The story takes place in Delaware, and the detective states in an early scene that he has "48 hours to convince the DA" to prosecute the woman. There is no "DA" in Delaware; all criminal cases are prosecuted by the Attorney General's Office. See more »

Angry-young-blind-girl comedy routine.
14 December 2006 | by (Washington Terrace, Utah) – See all my reviews

Mind's Eye draws a striking parallel to season three's 'Oubliette'. In both episodes, young women are accused of murder, however unlikely, and Mulder is the only one who believes them. There is a big enough difference in the story lines of the two episodes, that I don't fault Mind's Eye for having a similar theme. I think what carries Mind's Eye is the strong guest acting by Lili Taylor as Marty Glenn. She is so believable as an angry, young, blind girl. Definitely a top- notch performance. It was also great to see Blu Mankuma, last seen in season one's 'Ghost in the Machine', return as a guest star, albeit in a different role. I like the visuals of Marty's visions, probably a result of Kim Manner's direction. A great line is when Detective Pennock tells Mulder he is the most skeptical person he's ever met, and Mulder replies by saying he's been called a lot of things, but skeptical wasn't one of them. Just like in Oubliette, Mulder forms a connection with the young woman, and that's what makes the episode a little more special. It's almost as if he sees them as a younger sister to him. So, in conclusion, Mind's Eye: good story, great guest acting.
