I accept that this might be stretching credulity a tad and rests heavily upon my theory entitled: 'Chris Carter: All Things for a Reason' but just don your anoraks and suspend logic for a mo....

Has anyone else noticed the recurring motif of the eye during Season Three? Eye spy..

*

The alarming turquoise eyes of the remote viewers in 'The Innocents' and 'Exegesis' (methinks this colour is no accident but a nod to 'The Eye of Horus' frequently made from lapis lazuli: an astonishingly similar colour.)

*

The eye symbol discovered on the wall of the remote viewing room in the above episodes.

*

An identical eye symbol discovered by Frank on a wall in Skull and Bones (could it be that Ed is also a remote viewer?)

*

The animalistic eyes of Mr. Ho in 'Human Essence'.

*

The Sanderson's collection of glass eyes in 'Saturn Dreaming of Mercury' (their inclusion in the story appears to be relevant but I can't understand their bearing but there they are all the same.)

Darwin's Eye (say no more but.....) Eyes being pivotal to the plot, Emma unfolds a palm to reveal a picture of Melissa's eye (she says as much) she identifies the scrawl of words on the wall as being an image of Cassie by first recognising an eye and many more references to eyes all the way through.

I can't recall (either through remote viewing or otherwise) of the others but they are there: I'm going to have re-watch all of S3 to bring you more but has anyone else spotted this or am I, quite simply, seeing things.....

I guess it's in the eye of the beholder.

Is the eye symbol never explained then? I noted the other appearance of the eye motif from the remote viewing episode alone, and presumed that it had some great significance. When it turned up in "Skull and bones", I assumed this was a thread that I just hadn't been told about within the series, and I needed to watch series two to understand what it was all about.

The Sanderson's collection were presumably a creepy way to suggest that there was something a bit mysterious about Mr Sanderson :-).

Could it be one of those themes we are never going to find out about since we didn't get that final series which would have explained everything? Could it be a reference to Frank's inner eye?

Hi LadyBlack...

I certainly can't find an explanation for the eye's appearance in Skull and Bones and it is identical to the remote viewing cypher in the season's opening - oddly not even Frank seems intrigued by its appearance considering it was part of a previous investigation that involved the Marburg Virus and the reason for Catherine's demise. I don't remember it being noted or discussed on screen. The explanation for Ed's abilities is given as the result of 15 years of obsessive documentation and research, though his manner and abilities had me in mind of the autistic savants: most autistic savants have very extensive mental abilities, called splinter skills. They can memorize facts, numbers, license plates, maps, and extensive lists of sports and weather statistics, certainly an apt description for Ed and some of his more idiosyncratic behavioral traits are also in keeping with this - it could be that he is the result of a remote viewing programme as hinted by the symbol - explaining the MM's group desire to eradicate him as they did Mary IV and the Sisters for tor similar reasons.

I am off to indulge myself in this episode again and shall see if it is really just passed over as I seem to think - it could be, as you suggest, that the intention was to return to the remote viewing issue in a fourth season but they never got the chance...

Better keep my eyes peeled eh?
