Scully and Mulder investigate the kidnapping of 15 year-old Amy Jacobs who was snatched from her bedroom in the middle of the night. Mulder is intrigued by the fact that at the same time Amy was being abducted, Lucy Householder collapsed in the fast food restaurant where she worked. Both of them had nosebleeds and the police subsequently learn that Lucy was also a kidnap victim having escaped from her kidnapper some 15 years before after having been kept in a dark room for 5 years. Mulder thinks it's all too much for it to be a coincidence but the police begin to think Lucy is an accomplice to the latest crime when they see her long list of petty crimes and history of drug use. Mulder thinks there is a psychic connection between the two though the Special Agent in charge scoff at the idea. Written by
