Scully and Mulder are called in by two secretive government agents and asked if they've ever had an X file with similarities to their most recent case. Two men were found dead in an alley but still have a residual electrostatic charge and it appears their throat and larynx were crushed, but from the inside. Mulder manages to get a fingerprint from each of the dead men and learns they both had ties to terrorist organizations. Using video from a nearby ATM, they find that the two men had attacked Lauren Kyte, a secretary at Defense Department contractor HTG Industrial Technologies. She's recently decided to leave her job after the death of her boss Howard Graves, who recently committed suicide. Lauren isn't sure how she got away from those men or how they were killed. It all leads Mulder to believe that Lauren may have a guardian angel. Written by garykmcd

Did You Know?


When Mulder and Scully are in the library, if you look at the newspaper report, above the story of Howard Graves' suicide there is an article about a killer who extracts his victim's livers and escapes from impossible locations. A reference to Eugene Tooms. See more »


Mulder and Scully are told no blood work was done on Graves as homicide was not suspected, yet his organs were donated. Before transplants can be done extensive blood work is required to ensure compatibility and the donor is free of disease, drugs and other preventable complications. See more »


Mulder: Have you ever seen the liberty bell?
Scully: Yes.
Mulder: You know, I've been to Philadelphia a 100 times and I've never seen it.
Scully: You're not missing much. It's just a big bell with a big crack, and you have to wait in a long line.
Mulder: Yeah, but I'd really like to go.
Scully: Why now?
Mulder: I don't know. How late do you think they stay open?

From Beyond The Grave
19 September 2006 | by thebigeasy555See all my reviews

A woman is being protected beyond the grave by a entity which appears to be acting as some sort of guardian angel.Her boss at work dies and she feels his presence around her as people die inexplicably.Mulder has own theory on the case.Though no matter how much paranormal activity is involved Scully will try and offer up some sort of scientific explanation for it coming into conflict with Mulders much maligned open mind for the cause.Some good acting and the use of quality special effects makes this season one episode pretty entertaining.The idea of a dead person coming back from the grave in some form to avenge their death or help someone had been done a lot in the x-files.This was the first so originality goes to this episode
