Recap / The X-Files S02 E19 "Død Kalm"

Mulder and Scully investigate a US Navy vessel trapped in the Norwegian Sea, where the crew have become subject to rapid aging.


  • Foreign Language Title: The title is Danish for "dead calm".
  • Ghost Ship: Mulder and Scully get trapped in Norway on a boat. They age rapidly.
  • Gratuitous Foreign Language: Norwegian.
  • Karmic Death: Trondheim locks himself in the hold and hoards all the drinkable water, so obviously the outer hull of the ship rusts away and he drowns in the hold.
  • Rapid Aging: Although it's actually more like rapid cellular damage caused by contaminated water.
  • That Came Out Wrong: Mulder to Scully, as he's seasick on the ship.
    Mulder: You're lucky you inherited your father's legs.
    Scully: What?
    Mulder: His sea legs.
