Magic and mayhem ensue now as the pair go to a magic show! But all is not what it seems in this rather clever episode which turns into a mini Sherlock Holmes investigation created by two magicians wanting to put on the best final act ever…. and rob a bank. It starts with a guy turning is head 360 on his shoulders, only to die afterwards. Scully finds out he’s actually been dead for a month, and everything after that points to mis-direction.
It’s far too early in the morning (03:12) to go into the details of the actual trick, but this episode certainly keeps you watching. It’s one of the few episodes where there are no X-Files involved, yet Mulder still believes paranormal activity is at work, and Scully is sure it’s just a good old fashioned murder investigation.
