The power to believe turns out to be the strongest force there is.

Written and Directed by Creator Chris Carter. William B Davis, Robbie Amell and Lauren Ambrose Guest-Star.

When an art gallery that’s showing potentially offensive artwork is bombed, Mulder and Scully seek some way to communicate with the comatose bomber in order to prevent a future attack.

Meanwhile, a pair of younger FBI agents on the case (guest stars Robbie Amell and Lauren Ambrose) push Mulder and Scully to examine their own beliefs as Scully seeks answers from neuroscience and Mulder from mysticism.
