Mulder and Scully assist local police when they suspect woman they arrested at a murder scene, Marty Glenn, is the murderer. The problem is that the woman is blind. Mulder finds it all very unlikely That a woman who has been blind from birth could actually commit the crime in question. Matty knows a great deal about the crime scene and can describe much of it in detail however. Testing confirms her blindness but Mulder begins to think that she is "seeing" things in a far different way than a normal human being can. Written by garykmcd

Did You Know?


'The Blarney Stone', which Marty calls from police HQ, and where later Mulder and Scully go with the intention of apprehending Gotts, is a real pub on Carrall St in Vancouver near the junction with W Cordova. You can see the 'W Cordova St' sign above Mulder's car as he gets out at 38.02. Usually the production team do more to disguise the actual shooting locations, renaming motels, bars and other buildings. See more »


During the last scene, Mulder's left hand and Marty Glenn's right hand change places on the bars between shots. See more »


Det. Pennock: You are one skeptical guy, Agent Mulder.
Fox Mulder: Skeptical? I've been called a lot of things. Skeptical, however, is not one.

Angry-young-blind-girl comedy routine.
14 December 2006 | by MuldernscullySee all my reviews

Mind's Eye draws a striking parallel to season three's 'Oubliette'. In both episodes, young women are accused of murder, however unlikely, and Mulder is the only one who believes them. There is a big enough difference in the story lines of the two episodes, that I don't fault Mind's Eye for having a similar theme. I think what carries Mind's Eye is the strong guest acting by Lili Taylor as Marty Glenn. She is so believable as an angry, young, blind girl. Definitely a top- notch performance. It was also great to see Blu Mankuma, last seen in season one's 'Ghost in the Machine', return as a guest star, albeit in a different role. I like the visuals of Marty's visions, probably a result of Kim Manner's direction. A great line is when Detective Pennock tells Mulder he is the most skeptical person he's ever met, and Mulder replies by saying he's been called a lot of things, but skeptical wasn't one of them. Just like in Oubliette, Mulder forms a connection with the young woman, and that's what makes the episode a little more special. It's almost as if he sees them as a younger sister to him. So, in conclusion, Mind's Eye: good story, great guest acting.
