Several residents of Connerville, OK, have been killed in a series of freak lightning disturbances. All the victims were young -- ranging in age from 18 to 21. Investigating, Mulder and Scully suspect a local teenage layabout named Darren Oswald (Giovanni Ribisi), who apparently possesses the power to control the elements. First telecast October 6, 1995, D.P.O. (the initials are explained in the course of the story) was written by Howard Gordon. Also notable in this episode is the appearance of future comedy star Jack Black in a small role.
