S03E19"Second Sight"

Scene:Xena and Gabrielle had a big fight and they end up in a fantasy world "Illusia" with dreamlike tarot imagery. The wheel of fortune is their gateway. The costumed guest actors were dressed as different cards. Callisto was the Fool. Ares was the King of Swords. It was an entertaining episode and for tarot readers, especially, the card-based imagery made much sense. In the end, Xena & Gabrielle realize that fighting was wrong and they went back to being friends.

Characters:Lucy Lawless as Xena and Rene O'Connor as Gabrielle.

Scene:Fortune-tellers and tarot card readers are being brutally murdered, and the only person who knows every detail of the killings is a nondescript insurance salesman named Clyde Bruckman. Though Scully thinks Bruckman may be involved with the killings, Mulder believes Bruckman's knowledge of the crimes comes from his own clairvoyance. But Bruckman's gift is limited - he can only see how people are going to die - and the next death he predicts is Agent Mulder's.

Characters:Alex Diakun as the tarot dealer.
