Season 1, Episode 18: Miracle Man


A young boy, Samuel Hartley, resurrects a dead man at the scene of a fire in Tennessee in 1983. In the present day, local authorities have turned to the FBI for help in shutting down the boy and his adoptive father, whom they believe to be scammers and possibly complicit in the death of an old woman. The agents confront Samuel, who seems to know about Mulder's sister's abduction.

Mulder believes Samuel is legitimate, and also has the ability to use his powers to kill. Another woman at a faith healing event dies, evidently of poisoning, and Mulder, who has been seeing images of Samantha, tries to secure Samuel's release. Samuel is beaten to death with a little help from the deputies, and Mulder and Scully find that the man Samuel saved is linked to the deaths. However, Samuel apparently rises from the dead, and the sheriff is implicated in his murder.
