MULDER PROTECTS A SUSPECT IN A KIDNAPPING CASE WHO SEEMS TO HAVE AN UNUSUAL LINK TO THE VICTIM, WHILE SCULLY INSISTS THAT THE WOMAN KNOWS MORE THAN SHE IS TELLING.
A young girl is kidnapped out of her own bedroom; at the same time, another former victim twenty miles away bleeds the girl's blood and echoes the kidnapper's words. Mulder suspects a psychic link between the two and tries to persuade the woman, Lucy Householder, to help him find the newest victim. Reluctant to relive the nightmare of her five-year captivity, she resists even as it affects her more and more deeply. Scully suspects that Lucy may in fact be part of the kidnap plan, a suspicion confirmed when DNA analysis bears out her doubts. She is further concerned that Mulder may be becoming too personally involved in a case that has taken on overtones of his sister's abduction. When the kidnapper diverts the FBI's attention with a decoy, only Mulder, Scully and the unwilling Lucy can save young Amy from a cold death at the hands of a perverse killer.
