Mulder and Scully are called to examine two bodies which are electrostatically charged and have had their throats crushed from within. They are able to determine that they are members of an Iranian extremist group who attacked a woman named Lauren Kyte at an ATM. Kyte shows several signs of having telekinetic powers.
Scully begins to suspect that Howard Graves, Kyte's boss and a CEO at a technology company, may have faked his death, but is disproved by medical tests. Other government agents reveal that the company was under investigation for selling restricted parts to the extremist group. It later appears that the incidents are a result of Graves' ghost, who spares the man who murdered him to gain control of the company and instead shows Mulder where to find incriminating evidence.
Lorena Gale, who plays a medical examiner in this episode, also played Priest Elosha in the reimagined Battlestar Galactica series.
