Storyline

After two college students are kidnapped on the one year anniversary of a similar kidnapping at a different school, Mulder is convinced that they are dealing with a serial killer. He's ready to deal with the case on his own as Scully has recently lost her dearly beloved father but she insists on working her way through this difficult time. Mulder is annoyed when a self-declared psychic who is soon to be executed in the gas chamber, Luther Lee Boggs, offers to give them information about the case in return for a permanent stay of execution. Mulder is convinced he's a sham as far as being a psychic goes and is convinced that Boggs is orchestrating the kidnappings using outsiders. Scully, who has had her own encounter with the supernatural recently, isn't so sure and takes Boggs far more seriously. Written by garykmcd

Psychic Channelling
21 September 2006 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

I would say this episode is the most intense yet compared to standard x-files episodes one of the most challenging to watch.Different and daring,the usual x-files action and special effects takes a back seat.In it's place is dialogue and drama.The character Luther Boggs is one of the most fascinating ever written in the x-files and high praise must be heaped upon the writers of "Beyond The Sea"Not the most accessible of all the x-files episodes but without a doubt one of the engaging.The actor Brad Dourif who plays Luther Boggs is great and his scenes with Scully are an integral part of this episode.The drama and tension created between the two is brilliant and for once Scully seems to be a believer
