Storyline

After death row prisoner Napoleon "Neech" Manley is executed in Florida's electric chair, a number of prison guards are the victims of gruesome murders. Scully and Mulder are called into the case and there are rumors in the prison that there is a death list with five names on it. They learn from Manley's widow Danielle that he had promised to return from the grave and exact revenge but they look for for a less supernatural explanation for the events. They think they've found when they learn that Danielle has been living with one of the guards, Vincent Parmelly. For Mulder however, the final explanation just doesn't sit well. Written by garykmcd

Dana Scully: I'm sorry, Mulder. That's not what I learned in catechism.
Fox Mulder: Well, even Christianity teaches about the resurrection and ascendancy of the heavenly body.

One, Two, Neech Is Coming For You...
27 May 2006 | by (Washington Terrace, Utah) – See all my reviews

The List is an entertaining episode from season three. However it lacks a little something to make it a great episode. This episode is the second episode directed by Chris Carter. His first one was Duane Barry. You can tell you he is still a little bit green when it comes to directing. He gets better later on. For some reason he decided to give the prison a bit of a greenish glow to it. I have no idea why, I just think it is interesting. J.T. Walsh gives a mean prison warden performance in this episode. Writing is Chris Carter's stronger point, and it is usually showcased through Mulder and Scully's clever dialogue. For example, Mulder asks Scully what it would be like to be able to avenge yourself on five people and who would they be. Scully says, "I only get five?" To which Mulder replies, "I remembered your birthday this year, didn't I, Scully?" Later, Carter does an interesting slanted shot of Mulder and Scully as they leave Danielle's house which he slowly levels out. I don't why, I just noticed it. This episode lacks a powerful climax. It just kind of ends. Like I said before, 'The List' is a good episode, just not great.
