The X-files

6X07 Rain King

Mulder persuades Scully to join him in an investigation in Kroner, Kansas after being asked by the local Mayor, who believes that the drought they have been suffering from for the past nine months is caused by Daryl Moots. Following an argument with his fiancee Shelia, Daryl lost his leg in a car accident six months earlier, ever since then he has been able to make it rain at will. A valuable gift in a drought plagued area. Scully can not believe that Mulder wants to investigate a man who can control the weather. They go to Rain King Inc's office and meet Daryl's secretary, she can not understand why Mulder and Scully are investigating Daryl who is just trying to help people. The two agents meet a local TV weather man, Holman Hardt who explains that Kroner is a meteorologist's dream because of all the unusual weather over the years. Holman doubts Daryl has caused the drought, but does believe that Daryl can make it rain. Mulder and Scully go to a local farm where Daryl is due to make it rain. When Daryl arrives he claims not to know how he does it, but after a little dancing around, there is a clap of thunder and it starts to pour with rain. That night Mulder is nearly killed by a cow picked up by the wind and dropped in to his hotel room. Next morning Shelia claims to be responsible for the weather. Mulder doubts that she is the one controlling the weather but does believe that she is the key to the case as suspicions focus in on Holman and his unrequited love for Shelia.
