Cylinder not firing??????

I got my car in the reserves last week, then she sat for a few day and when I started her yesterday it seemed like a cylinder wasn't firing. Put half a tank of 91 in and it seemed to fix the problem but it started doing it again today.

Any thoughts?

figured it out. Water had got between the coil and spark plug on #5. Should really install the valve cover
