BEYOND THE SEA
A SELF-PROCLAIMED PSYCHIC ON DEATH ROW BARGAINS FOR A COMMUTED SENTENCE WITH THE LIVES OF TWO KIDNAP VICTIMS, WHILE DANA SCULLY STRUGGLES WITH THE SHOCK OF HER FATHER'S DEATH AND HER OWN BELIEFS.
Dana Scully's father dies suddenly after a visit, and she is shocked when he appears to her in a vision. In her newly vulnerable state, she is deeply disturbed by a North Carolina death row inmate, Luther Lee Boggs, who claims to be able to channel the spirits of the dead, and is willing to trade information about a kidnapping in exchange for commutation of his sentence. Mulder thinks the whole scheme is a hoax, but Scully is troubled by doubt. Her belief in science is further shaken when she follows some of Boggs' channeled "clues" to a crime scene; Mulder thinks Boggs is orchestrating the whole kidnapping with an outside accomplice. Yet when Boggs accurately predicts Mulder's shooting and a chase through an abandoned brewery, Scully must decide how far she is willing to go to test her faith in science.
