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 a genuine psychic. While Scully is appropriately skeptical, Mulder realizes that Bruckman can only see one thing - how people will die.
Did You Know?
Bruckman begins describing his own death and he says he sees himself lying naked in a field of red tulips. The shot then fades into a scene of Bruckman's body. However, he's not naked; he's wearing a white T-shirt and briefs. This is due to having to comply with network television's standards and practices regarding nudity as he would not be allowed to be shown fully naked on an FCC-approved television series. See more
Look, all I know is that so far Yappi has provided more solid concrete leads on this case than you have. Now, if you don't mind, I have to get an APB out on...
A white male, 17 to 34, with or without a beard, maybe a tattoo, who's impotent. Let's go.
Might as well go home, Mulder. This case is as good as solved.
