Acting upon clues which appeared in a dream, Mulder recaptures wily serial killer John Lee Roche (Tom Noonan). Even in captivity, however, Roche gets the upper hand, exerting a bizarre influence over the FBI agent. Mulder could resist, but doesn't: after all, Roche may hold the key to the mystery surrounding the long-ago disappearance of Mulder's sister. Written by Vince Gilligan, "Paper Hearts" first aired December 15, 1996.
