Storyline

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 garykmcd

Mulder's personal touch
26 July 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I recently bought Season 3 on DVD and am currently working my way through the episodes, enjoying every minute so far. However, none of them has affected me as much as this one. Whether it's because the subject matter of child abduction is made all the more poignant due to recent news items, I'm not sure, but I think part of it is down to the connection between Mulder's character and his own personal experience with the disappearance of his sister. David Duchovny gives a very good performance here, and his character's sympathetic approach to handling the troubled soul of Lucy is at times very touching. The abductor Carl Wade is suitably creepy, and the scenes between him and Amy Jacobs are sometimes difficult to watch, but then, this is always likely when you're handling topics such as this.

For Firefly fans (such as me) there's the added bonus in that the present-day abductee is played by none other than a young Jewel Staite!
