If only we could find more pieces. He has been threatened by men in Washington. He is delirious with abnormal brain functions. Skinner seems to know details of Scully's investigation that she has not reported. He has spent his life searching for answers and he is there to help read what is on the craft. The next day.
Alone later. Scully hits him with a chair. where he tells her what has happened to Mulder. They won't treat him because they don't know what is wrong with him..

Mulder shows almost perfect accuracy. please hold on. She loves him and won't let him die. Mulder says Kritschgau can prove what is causing his condition. Kritschgau recognizes Mulder's condition from past CIA experiments into ESP. Kritschgau gives Mulder a different drug. but he can look inside her and understand why. Barnes discovers that some fish he has in a bag have come back to life. but when Skinner has the test speeded up.. Although he doesn't seem aware. but Skinner later finds that Mulder has slipped a note into his pocket saying "help me. which eases Mulder's condition. attacks Barnes. then he appears inside the land rover.

Mulder tells Skinner that he knows Skinner has been compromised -." Skinner returns and sees Mulder in private. but it was never attributed to aliens." He disappears. There is no need to prove what he is -. who falls beside part of the craft. It is a puzzle. Scully sees the native in the road. Kritschgau conducts a test of Mulder's "remote viewing" abilities. Scully arrives back in Washington and first goes to Skinner's office. she tells him that if he knows what she has found." It leads Skinner to Michael Kritschgau. reaching out his hand to her and saying "some truths are not for you.

Scully receives a book on Native American beliefs and practices. Scully hears a noise and finds Albert Hosteen in her apartment.

Piller knows about Samantha . If the episode actually does depict the original Harsh Realm broadcasts. The expert doubts Mulder's story because it seems to be typical guilt fantasies. Mulder takes Piller to the grave site. Hard as it is. Piller's son disappeared under strange circumstances. Scully doesn't want to involve Piller because Mulder is vulnerable right now. The expert advises Scully to leave it be. In the wastepaper basket where pictures were burned she finds part of a document. Mulder in the room. Scruloff was 19 when he committed his first murder. They transform matter into energy starlight. Are they still dreaming the dreams of children or was their innocence taken along with their lives?

He makes a compelling case that he is no different from Mulder and just wants to find his son. because there is nothing as ancient in the universe as starlight. She vaguely remembers a brother and she hopes he someday reads the diary. He admits to signing the order because he believed Samantha was dead. Later. Mulder is convinced that the Smoking Man knew about this. She had a vision of the girl dead.

The agents and Piller go to visit the emergency room nurse who signed Samantha in. Scully and Piller realize Mulder is missing and find him in another room. They visit a hospital to read reports of a "Jane Doe" admitted. Both agents recognize the initials as belonging to the Cigarette Smoking Man and Scully is astounded when Mulder doesn't want to press the Smoking Man on the issue. A security guard drives up and tells them to move along. Scully arrives home to find the Smoking Man waiting for her. Later. We see ghostly visions of many people. Piller senses that Samantha was present. He leaves. All three sneak back into the base and enter the house where Samantha apparently lived. Mulder has the feeling that this is the end of the road. Meanwhile. He waits outside as Scully and Piller to go the door and talk to the woman. Piller asks them to hold hands so he can try to summon the spirits of the residents. that he has been brought here to learn the truth. Mulder doesn't believe what the Smoking Man said because of the handprint. The agents go and confront Piller -. It is a copy of the document signed with the initials CGBS calling off the investigation.

Scully and the Smoking Man talk as they drive. He has always had a sort of affection for her and Mulder. He held her life in his hands when he cured her of cancer. The Smoking Man thinks Scully is drawn to powerful men but also keeps distant from them, which is why she would die for Mulder but won't allow herself to love him. She dismisses his comments as "pop psychology." He takes her down a dirt road, and we see that they are being followed. They arrive at a pleasant country home where a woman named Marjorie Butters lives, who the Smoking Man claims is 118 years old, although she is as vital as a much younger woman. She is gardening and greets CSM with a hug. Scully sees that Marjorie has a scar on the back of her neck - apparent evidence of the validity of the Smoking Man's claims for his science.
Scully's apartment manager tells Mulder about Scully leaving with a "driver," who Mulder recognizes as the Smoking Man. Skinner and Mulder are concerned but can't find Scully. She took an FBI vehicle and her mother knows nothing about an emergency. Scully phones Skinner and says everything is OK, but she won't talk directly to Mulder. Mulder becomes convinces that she is in trouble. Scully and the Smoking Man stop for gas and she goes to the bathroom, talking on the tape to Mulder. She secretly mails the tape to Mulder but as they drive off the man following them is seen to have gotten the envelope out of the mailbox.
They end up at a lake home, late at night. Scully is asleep in the car and the Smoking Man puts on gloves, brushing a lock of hair out of her face. Scully wakes up to find herself in satin pajamas. She thinks the Smoking Man drugged her but he says he just carried her in so that she would be comfortable. They are in Milford, Pennsylvania. She is upset and ready to leave, but finally decides she has to know the answers. The Lone Gunmen arrive at Mulder's apartment, in disguise. They got into Scully's apartment and found e-mails on her computer to somebody named "Cobra." Mulder and the Gunmen barge into Skinner's office carrying Scully's laptop. For the last 6 months Cobra has been e-mailing Scully from the department of defense, but she is unaware of it. Somebody has been posing as Scully to win Cobra's trust. Mulder is convinced that the Smoking Man is doing this and Scully's life is in danger. Meanwhile, the Smoking Man tells Scully that they'll be meeting their contact for dinner and provides her an evening dress. At a fancy restaurant, Smoking Man says that their contact, Cobra, is to human genetic science what the early nuclear scientists were to nuclear warfare. The Smoking Man says that if Cobra receives assurances, the science he turns over will be not just a cure for cancer but a cure for all human disease. How? From the final frontier - largely extraterrestrial. Theoretically the Smoking Man can be
cured but it appears that he doesn't really want to be. He is a lonely man. The Smoking Man goes outside for a smoke. The man who has been following them approaches and points out that Cobra hasn't shown up, so they have to wait, but Scully won't stick around for ever. The Smoking Man tells him, "Just do your damn job.
Cobra, however, has slipped Scully a note about where she should meet him. The Smoking Man lets her take a small motorboat to the Calico Cove inlet, down the lake. Another boat approaches hers. Cobra comments that they are finally meeting and that she is just as she described herself. He hands her a CD-ROM. She denies that they have spoken before - but he is shot and dies before they can say more. The sniper then targets Scully, but the Smoking Man kills him before he can fire at her. She returns to the lake home where the Smoking Man meets her. Because she still believes him, she gives him the CD-ROM but he gives it back. Later, Scully is at Mulder's apartment where the Lone Gunmen help examine the content of the disk. It is empty. They return to the building where Spender's office was, but it is vacant. Mulder says that the Smoking Man used Scully. Marjorie Butters was a fake. Jason has a chip in his neck but the parents probably won't let them examine him. Scully believed the Smoking Man but Mulder thinks he used her to save himself, to get the science on that disk - saving himself at the expense of the human race. Scully says that for a moment she saw something in the Smoking Man's eyes, a longing for something more than power - something he could never have. Realizing what he is doing, the Smoking Man throws the real CD into the lake, apparently dooming himself and keeping the cure for all disease from the human race.
Spring 2000 Requiem. In Bellefleur, OR - a police car races down highway. Driving is Detective Miles, who fans first met in the pilot episode of The X-Files. He radios to a deputy to wait for backup, but Miles' car loses power and coasts, then strikes another police car that is stopped on the highway in the dark. The forest is glowing. The dials on Miles' watch are spinning. The deputy in the other car appears to be dead and green acid is on the ground. As Miles gets out of the car, another man with the same face as the deputy stands there, unspeaking. An auditor is in the X-Files office. Mulder and Scully have spent a huge amount on travel - by FBI standards these numbers are out of control. The auditor says that Mulder's two big issues, the conspiracy and the disappearance of his sister, have been resolved, but Mulder points out that nothing the agents have been investigating has been resolved. Acknowledging that Mulder's sister was a major motivation for Mulder, the auditor asks that given the case report saying that Samantha is dead, what is left to investigate? Scully also has to defend the investigation of the conspiracy to the auditor. The auditor tells Mulder that he is evaluating what The X-Files does, so if they go forward they can do it more responsibly. He tells Mulder that if he is going to spend
so much time looking for aliens, he should narrow his search to where they are. Meanwhile, in a "hellhole" middle eastern prison, Marita Covarrubias gets Alex Krycek released. She tells him that the Smoking Man sent her to find him. The Cigarette Smoking Man is dying.
Two teenagers, Gary and Richie, approach Detective Miles in the woods. They heard that there was an airplane collision with a UFO. He tells them that the Navy found their plane and there is no of another craft. Miles sends them away. As Mulder and Scully are talking in the X-Files office, Billy Miles telephones Mulder. Mulder and Scully immediately remember the name. Billy was abducted seven years earlier and Mulder and Scully investigated the case. He tells them that it is happening again, but not to him this time. the implication is that he thinks his father has been abducted.
Even though the auditor would say they couldn't justify the expense, the agents head out to Oregon to investigate. Alex and Marita visit the Cigarette Smoking Man's apartment, in Washington DCC's Watergate Apartments. He is in a wheelchair, attended by a nurse, Greta, and has to smoke through a tracheotomy hole in his throat. Krycek accuses that the Smoking Man had him thrown in that prison. The Smoking Man agrees that it was for trying to sell something that was the Smoking Man's. The Smoking Man counters that they have a singular opportunity now. A crash in Oregon -- an alien ship has collided with a military aircraft. It is Roswell and Corona again, the chance to rebuild the project. Meanwhile, Richie and Gary are back in the Oregon forest at night, looking for the UFO. Gary has an incident in which he shakes violently, then disappears. Richie sees lights glowing in the forest and his flashlight bursts into flame. He runs off.
Mulder and Scully arrive in Oregon. Billy has been a sheriff's deputy for three years. He got over the abductions, but other people in the area didn't and don't believe it. Billy is divorced and back living with his father. He tells about the crash. The other unidentified craft hasn't been found. His father has been no help, even though a deputy is missing. Detective Miles drives up. He claims that he has been working with the FAA and it looks like there was no second craft. As they drive to the scene, Mulder finds that the collision of the two police cars happened at the same place Mulder painted an X on the pavement seven years earlier. Scully finds an ammunition clip, likely from the missing deputy's gun, but there is no indication of what he might have been shooting at. As Mulder and Scully drive off to see the missing man's wife, Detective Miles places the evidence bag with the shells in his car trunk, and viewers see that the body of the real Detective Miles is in the trunk. A Bounty Hunter is masquerading as Miles. Mulder and Scully are surprised that the missing man's wife is Teresa Nemmen, an abduction victim who seven years ago approached the agents for help. Her husband is also an abductee, but they keep it a secret because people in the
community don't understand. His experiences were more terrifying than hers. He was taken many times and tested. Teresa has medical files and as she gets them, Mulder watches Scully plays with Teresa's baby.
That evening, as Mulder study the files, Scully comes to Mulder's door, uneasy but she doesn't know what is wrong. She felt dizzy and got chills. Mulder covers her up in his bed and puts an arm around her to warm her. Mulder says it's not worth it. He wants her to go home. Seeing her holding the baby shows him what has been taken away from her - including her health and the chance to be a mother. (Recall that Scully cannot have children, because of the procedures done during her abduction.) Maybe what the FBI says is true, Mulder speculates. The personal costs are too high. There is so much she needs to do in her life - so much more than this. There has to be an end. Meanwhile, Krycek is in Oregon, too. He reports by phone to the Smoking Man that in spite of lots of effort, nobody can find the UFO. He is told that it must be there, hidden in plain site. Find the deputy and you'll find the ship. Teresa is awakened in the night. Her husband, Ray, is home, but when he doesn't speak she realizes that it is not her husband. She runs upstairs and he follows. She stabs him with a knife and noxious gas comes out of his body, overcoming her.
Mulder and Scully arrive at Teresa's home. Billy reports that Teresa is gone, apparently taken because the door was open. Inside they find the mark they immediately recognize as acid burns from what Scully describes as "arguably an alien." Scully feels faint again for a moment. Marita, who has stayed with the Smoking Man, asks him why bring Krycek into this matter and then play with him by feeding him incomplete information. The Smoking Man says that he has great faith that Krycek will find the ship, but if the Smoking Man tells him exactly how, Krycek will be tempted to sell the information. The ship is rebuilding itself, the Smoking Man says. What we call God is an alien intelligence. Marita states her conclusion that the aliens are coming and the Smoking Man corrects her that they are coming back. Mulder approaches Richie, who is watching the crime scene where Teresa disappeared. He claims that "they" took his friend, Gary. Billy is surprised when Richie states that Billy's father was in the woods and knows what is going on. Richie takes Mulder and Scully to where Gary disappeared. Richie claims that his flashlight beam hit a spot and bent the light. As Scully walks nearby she is lifted up in the air and shakes rapidly. Mulder realizes Scully is out of sight and finds her on the ground, groggy. She doesn't understand why this is happening to her. Mulder also doesn't know, but is sure that these aren't just random abductions and that the abductees won't be coming back this time. Billy goes to his father's home and draws his gun, confronting Detective Miles. Billy says, "I don't know who you are but you are not going to take me." His father eventually calms him and Billy gives up his gun, but we see that Detective Miles is the Bounty Hunter. Mulder and Scully walk up to the door and, finding it open, walk in. Billy and the Bounty Hunter are gone.
Krycek reports to the Smoking Man and Marita that he failed. Skinner visits Mulder's office. There is a ship in those woods. he points out.
Skinner accompanies Mulder into the Oregon woods. They're taking abductees. however. It's not going to be there forever. "I have to. ready to be transported up to the UFO. Mulder won't let her go back to Oregon. Krycek will cooperate because he wants to Damn the Smoking Man's soul. but she is pregnant. and Krycek agrees that it is time "to send the devil back to hell. wondering if it is just a "snipe hunt. causing the hand to vibrate rapidly. The Smoking Man speculates that perhaps Krycek never wanted to succeed? "The hour is at hand?" the Smoking Man asks. "we will find him. He vows that he won't." Scully looks at the medical records with the Lone Gunmen and realizes that all of the abductees experienced the same kind of elevated brain activity that Mulder had a few months ago.
. the deputy. cloaked in an energy field. The alien is eliminating proof of all the abductions. but Scully collapses." Krycek pushes the wheelchair down the stairs and the Smoking Man lies at the bottom. Mulder walks up to the field and puts his hand into it. They are both crying. Scully tells Skinner that there is something else she has to tell him. Mulder is inside the energy field with many of the other abductees. Teresa and Billy. It departs and all of the people are gone. however. Skinner visits Scully in her hospital room. Mulder and Skinner lay out a network of laser beams to detect the energy field of the ship. She can't explain or believe it. like Detective Miles. that he must keep to himself." she adds. "As you do to Mulder and to me you do to all mankind. Skinner knows that he will be asked what he saw and says he can't deny it. They call the Lone Gunmen in to consult and they determine that the ship is so well cloaked that even military satellites don't detect it. he is sorry." The Smoking Man's final words are. which is hovering overhead. Scully finds them talking and joins the effort. Scully says. She already heard about Mulder's disappearance. Mulder thinks he is in trouble and says that if the higher-ups are coming down on Skinner. The Bounty Hunter walks up and joins them in the circle. They realize that it is Mulder who is in danger. Skinner sees the ship. This is Mulder's chance to change all that and find the proof. Mulder follows into the hall. because they know exactly what to look for. apparently dead. including some that we thought were dead. Mulder enters a glowing circle with them and sees a ship overhead." and Skinner nods. She feels ok they're just running some tests. but the Gunmen have detected it. and Scully is an abductee. They explain that they have a singular opportunity. Skinner realizes he can't see Mulder. The Cigarette Smoking Man is dying.Two days later at the FBI building in Washington. Skinner. His last wish is to rebuild the conspiracy. Mulder won't risk losing her. They hug and she vows that she won't let him go alone. has Krycek and Marita with him. As they talk it is rebuilding itself. Scully can't handle it and leaves the room.
His computer is also gone. Doggett calls on Kersh and asks if anyone else is also assigned to look for Mulder that Doggett doesn't know about. He claims he saw Mulder in her building a few moments earlier. she checks Doggett's computer file. Later.they are pulling down UFO information from the Pacific Northwest. She throws a cup of water in his face and walks out.she leaves a message that she needs to talk.she wants respect and he thinks she just sees him as "the big bad wolf. she finds men in the X-Files office who tell her that they are looking for anything that might be pertinent for the manhunt. Kersh tells Scully and Skinner that the only acceptable solution is to find Mulder safe and alive. and checks his badge -. : He vows to Scully that he will tell the truth. but Scully says that he won't be any good to Mulder if he gives them the power to ruin his career. Kersh denies it. In a dream (?) we see Mulder with his face skin stretched by mechanical claws." He finds it hard to swallow that a scientist would accept Mulder being taken by aliens. They verbally fence . The Lone Gunmen are with Skinner at a satellite dish field .it is Doggett. but can't determine where the UFO went. at home. but runs to the bathroom because she has to vomit.that from the beginning Mulder never trusted Scully. but sees no one but her landlord. She tells him that she has seen things she
. grabs a gun and pursues. : She says she doesn't think he knew Mulder at all. She goes to Skinner -. She lies down. Her visions of him are disturbing. Kersh says FBI agent John Doggett has been named the leader of the search. He claims to have known Mulder. She thinks a conventional search for Mulder is crazy. Scully sits while Sinner gives his statement. She calls Doggett and tells him to keep away from her. Another agent is near her and strikes up a conversation. She sees the shadow of someone outside her apartment door. At work. A drill enters his mouth and begins cutting. but hears sounds on the line indicating that the line is tapped. She runs back to her apartment and finds that her computer is gone.they agree that they won't find Mulder that way. It is the day after Scully discovers she is pregnant. She dreams both of her baby and of Mulder (or possibly receives psychic impressions from him?). He always took the rumors with a grain of salt . but gets an answering machine .
Scully goes to Mulder's apartment. She sees someone outside watching her apartment. but he appears perplexed.June 2000? (See date comments in "Without" listing) Within. Kersh warns that of anything gets out about aliens or abductions. She calls her mom.
Skinner is called to give a statement about Mulder's disappearance. Scully feels she and Skinner should be directing the search. Kersh has been named Deputy Director and is now Skinner's superior. Scully wakes up in Mulder's bed and finds Doggett in the apartment. Scully and Skinner will be fired. His bed still has some of his clothes on it.
Doggett has also found that the Mulder family cemetery marker is newly engraved to say "Fox Mulder 1961-2000.to be continued. An agent reports that Gibson has been found at a school for the deaf. Doggett finds medical records of additional treatment Scully knew nothing about following Mulder's hospitalization a year ago for unusual brain activity.. Skinner is questioned -.they believe Gibson's file is what was stolen.there was lots of microburst activity in the Arizona desert meaning that is probably where the UFO took Mulder. Doggett. Satellite data shows UFO activity 100 miles north of Phoenix. Gibson went out the window of the office where he was being held. School officials pull Gibson out of class pending arrival of the FBI. The boy was last seen in Arizona and the general consensus is that to find Mulder they need to find Gibson.and Scully wakes up." Scully doesn't know what to think.. unless Mulder took one last big chance. Scully concludes that it is the aliens removing evidence and that they are in Arizona because they are looking for Gibson Andrew Praise. Doggett and his task force are also there. She is in a vehicle with Skinner in Arizona. How far would he go for his truth.
Skinner and Scully go back to the Gunmen .a medical saw cutting into his chest -. Gibson walks up to a man (we don't see who it is) and Doggett soon after finds their footprints lead off into the mountains.cannot explain and as a scientist it is a badge of honor to not dismiss these things because somebody else thinks it's BS.. Scully asks Doggett to not report Skinner's statement. Doggett also finds a file (slipped under his door by an unknown person) on Gibson -. Doggett found car rental receipts for a series of 370-mile trips Mulder took over four weekends in May without telling anyone. knows that he saw a UFO at close range. Would he stage his own disappearance? Skinner. Doggett asks? His life and work were threatened and nothing was proven.somebody removed files after hours. which explains the rental car trips. They wonder if Skinner is helping Mulder and used Mulder's pass card. Scully and Skinner also head for the school. NC. Scully realizes that Raleigh is where Teena Mulder is buried. We see another scene of Mulder undergoing medical tests -. though.it was Mulder's pass card that was used to enter the room and Skinner was at the building until 10pm the night before. and Gibson gives a meaningful look at a girl also attending the school. who is hard proof of alien DNA. Doggett gets a call about Mulder at FBI headquarters. The task force agents spread out. Scully and Skinner all arrive at the school at the same time. but finds that Mulder's credit card was used two days ago in Raleigh. Doggett tells Scully that he believes Skinner. Doggett chases and finds Mulder pulling Gibson toward a cliff.
As they talk. It appears that Mulder knew that he was dying but didn't tell Scully. Skinner and Scully are called to the task force room -... flying helicopters. Doggett asks if Mulder is trying to create doubt and leave a mark. Doggett says he just wants help to find Mulder.

After Doggett repeatedly shouts orders. Who are these beings we do not understand? If they know our secrets. so they search the school building. The Bounty Hunter. because he is part alien. Scully follows on foot. Gibson and the girl are there. The other agents gather back at the school with the children outside. Scully promises to protect him. They only reason the aliens want to take him is because he is special. Scully finds the bicycle abandoned. having to trot to keep up. Scully has seen what looks like a man transform into another man. Doggett says he saw Mulder. Scully provides an opening narration about how we live in a darkness of our own making. In a close-up we see that Mulder almost immediately awakes with a start. and could even become the FBI Director some day. but says cops see amazing things sometimes. She and Skinner see the girl Gibson looked at earlier get on a bicycle and ride off. but does not have him in custody. Gibson cannot be found. the image of the ship dissolves. The girl is the only one at the school he told.
Scully is convinced that it may have looked like Mulder. but he transforms to look like the principal to talk to Doggett. but Mulder falls off the cliff and strikes the ground far below. Skinner tells him that the only way to find Mulder is to listen to Scully and find the truth. Doggett can't explain it. Doggett says she is starting to remind him of Mulder. still looking like Mulder. Gibson broke his leg while running away. because if Doggett puts anything about aliens in his report. Doggett asks for specifics. but Doggett and the other the agents now present don't know where Mulder is. Doggett runs forward to stop him. who runs away. why can't we know theirs? We see a UFO landing. Kersh can't understand how Doggett could find Mulder then lose him. Doggett and Skinner talk . Kersh will ruin
. Scully sets his leg but has to go get a car to transport him. Mulder backs away from Doggett toward the cliff. come to collect a bounty on Gibson. but it wasn't. but as the narration concludes. Scully thinks Gibson is long gone. Skinner says Doggett has a good reputation. The Bounty Hunter wanted to take Gibson back to his ship. Scully answers that what appeared to be Mulder was an alien bounty hunter. He tells Scully that she shouldn't have come. is inside. which is why he has been set up to fail. His body is not where it fell. but even then he can lose. Mulder releases Gibson.Skinner tells Doggett that he is a pawn in a rigged game.

When he reveals that he knows Scully is pregnant. They soon end up with guns pulled on each other because they each suspect the other of being a shape changer. They are bemused to see Scully in person at the same time that an agent radios that she is inside the building. he is not there. The Bounty Hunter is inside the school. Doggett is now ready to question his own security. calling for Mulder. It illuminates her.

Scully wants to sneak away in a vehicle to get Gibson. It lands and Doggett gets out. posing as Skinner. Green blood fizzes out and the body quickly dissolves.

"They're here to save us. Doggett returns and sees Krycek. She accuses that he doesn't believe the evidence of his eyes. Doggett talks with Scully. but that he was wrong to feel that the grave should not be opened.it is Billy Miles. who is in Mulder's room disconnecting Mulder from the equipment. Doggett has concerns about Scully's well being. Doggett comes to Mulder's room. The double heartbeat Scully heard in Billy maybe be evidence for this. Krycek tries to run Doggett down and Doggett grabs him through the car window as the car careens through the garage. He says he isn't ready to accept a load of crap but Scully says he's just bull-headed. The dead skin washes off his body. He doesn't remember much when Scully gently questions him. He asks if Scully believes the story about aliens coming to save the world. and thankful for his concern. A nurse enters and asks Scully to come . stops. Scully reports that there isn't a piece of medical data on Billy that isn't 100% normal. such as a virus." Doggett walks off and Scully follows. They took so many people this time. backs up and gets out of the car.Mulder's body has to be stabilized in order to administer the vaccine she has asked Skinner to get her. allowing it to break on the floor. Krycek says we all have lives in our hands . Krycek says to get the vaccine. This is not because of her personal feelings. making him suspicious. Doggett wants to know where Krycek is and finds him in a car in the parking garage. Billy regains consciousness. Doggett wants to know about the people he finds left for dead.the question is who is willing to sacrifice.In the hospital. Scully says that after her initial reaction to Doggett. holding Mulder's hand. then drives off before Doggett can get to him
. but Doggett is finally thrown free. The truth about what caused this is what matters. At a corrections facility in Perkey. Scully is on her way to a surgical bay . but it doesn't come without a price. but it's like Billy literally became a new person. He says there may be a vaccine. standing in the hallway. He came down after hearing about Billy. a question she doesn't answer. Scully demands to know what Skinner knows. would be resurrected as aliens as part of the plot to take over the world. Skinner will have to make sure Scully's pregnancy doesn't come to term. It doesn't make sense. Doggett searches out Skinner. who tells him that she believes that Mulder is infected by a virus that keeps him just alive enough to transform him into an alien. West Virginia. Doggett talks with Absalom.
Billy's body looks healthy. he changed her opinion about him. Later. but now he understands. but because he is assigned to The X-Files. if not cured. apparently an attempt to kill Mulder. Krycek. As Doggett approaches him. holding up the vial containing the vaccine. Skinner couldn't kill Scully's baby in order to get the vaccine. She is thankful to know about him. Scully and Skinner talk.
Skinner goes to Mulder's room and finds Krycek there. He remembers the water and being on the spacecraft. however. Scully is sitting there. He gets out of bed and showers. Absalom also told Doggett that the abductees. naked and disoriented. Skinner asks if it could be due to an alien influence.
Doggett storms back into the hospital. The scars on his face and body are repairing themselves. however. meaning that the promotion is no longer available to Doggett. and as the agents wrestle for control of the arm. gently touching the wounds on his face and remembering what was done to him during his abduction. Later. They have important news."
Mulder is in his hospital room. Scully has realized that by keeping Mulder on life support they were helping the virus incubate." Salt pulls a gun out of his belt. Seeing Scully holding his hand and crying tears of joy. Mulder says that her pregnancy is also an answer to her prayers. He puts on gloves and climbs the fence. but when he sees what is happening he withdraws. In addition to Mulder's incredible recovery. "Anybody miss me?" Doggett looks in. Maybe they can give him courses of antiviral drugs to help him. On the CD-ROM is written. The virus is gone. As Salt passes out.
At the hospital. He is having trouble processing what has happened to him." and "Aliens are taking over the United States.
. Scully tells Mulder he can't understand what it was like -. Scully and a doctor enter. Then he asks.Krycek wasn't to be trusted. later identified as Howard Salt. When Skinner took him off the equipment. He doesn't have the vaccine. finding him dead and now having him back. he needs to know. and he is happy for her. Kersh says. Mulder's terminal disease is no longer detectible. he hands a CD-ROM to an agent.
Three Words. Mulder says he feels like Austin Powers. Secret Service agents intercept him as he calls out "He needs to know. Mulder wakes up. walks along the iron fence along the street outside the White House. He. "Fight the Future. Her prayers have been answered. Scully is in the operating room with Mulder when Doggett enters. the gun fires into Salt's abdomen. A man. Mulder's temperature dropped but his vital signs were unchanged. has no idea where he fits in now. he jokingly asks "Who are you?". Doggett tells Skinner he was right . asking him to give it to the President. Scully takes Mulder home to his apartment. Doggett is called to Kersh's office again.learning of his abduction. running toward the building. It's going to be awful crowded down in that X-Files office. searching for him. He is in perfect health. after the treatment with antiviral drugs and blood transfusions. He looks around and notices that one of his fish is missing.
Doggett doesn't know much about the paranormal. In Bassett County. Scully's cell phone pager beeps with a message from Mulder. Deputy Director Kersh is watching a TV report about the census worker when Doggett and Skinner enter his office."
They find Mulder in his office. As Absalom utters Biblical phrases. Scully answers that she is "all over it. including Absalom.
Later. In the dirt. is working on a road. he says. he says. healing and alien invasion. WV. Scully has submitted an application to reinstate Mulder on The X-Files. For the first time. Mulder is told that Scully has had a partner for the last several months. The success rate on the X-Files since Doggett was assigned is much higher than during the time when Scully and Mulder worked together. Absalom grabs Doggett's gun and holds it on him. He hands Absalom a book. Mulder thinks it's something that was set up eight years earlier. Absalom claims "they" killed Salt for what he knew. Doggett is shown the newspaper clipping." Inside the front cover is a newspaper clipping about a census worker shot on the White House lawn. The invasion has begun. People are so rarely what they seem. he uses the board to strike a guard and runs.
Skinner and Scully actually tell Mulder about Kersh's decision. By being there. a trustee is circulating library books to prisoners in a common area. but Scully says he is above reproach and is also being maneuvered. She is with Skinner in a briefing about Absalom's escape. he could be endangering the X-Files. Kersh says. Skinner stresses that while the claims are not substantiated. but he eludes the guards by running in front of a passing train. and directs Doggett to tell Mulder that he will not be reinstated. He vows to show Doggett after which Doggett will spread the word." As they talk. "The Coming Apocalypse. He has to make sure that Doggett is still Doggett. Skinner tells Scully that this is obviously an X-File and he wants Doggett to be running it. It is Scully calling. He is pursued. Doggett is ordered to put his hands behind him and lean forward so Absalom can check the back of his neck. The agents in the room are skeptical about reports that Absalom made claims about alien abduction.At the federal prison in Perkey. As the prisoners are loaded into a van. WV. "Where is everybody. Absalom finds a board with a nail sticking out and slips it into the sleeve of his orange jumpsuit. but he brushes off such warnings. He has the new Harry Potter book. neither have they been refuted. The evidence of torture was real. just as Absalom's life is threatened. which blocks pursuit. The FBI is no place for a personal crusade. come on down. Mulder already knows
. the phone rings but Doggett is not allowed to answer. feet up on his desk. Mulder intends to go back to work anyway. comments Kersh. The words "Fight the Future" were found on the wall of Absalom's cell. Doggett returns home to find Absalom waiting for him. Kersh says the alternative is closing the X-Files completely. Kersh intends to deny the application. a prison work crew. They are already here.
about Absalom and has noticed that Salt is seen in a photograph taken of people at Absalom's compound. Mulder doesn't know any more than that, but has a big hunch. Salt, he says, was a multiple abductee, was trying to get word to the President and was killed for what he knew. Scully and Mulder visit the FBI evidence room. Mulder locates Howard Salt's personal effects, including Salt's laptop. The entire hard drive is taken up with a ten gigabyte encrypted file. He removes the hard drive and they leave the evidence room.
Absalom and Doggett arrive at the Federal Statistics Center in Crystal City, VA. Absalom has taped a gun to Doggett's back so that it would fire into Doggett's skull. Absalom has his hand on the gun. Doggett's FBI credentials get them through the guard post, but a hidden x-ray locates the gun. Absalom wants access to the place they compile the data from the current census. He thinks there's proof in the census data that the aliens are already among us. As the two are about to enter the computer room, guards appear with guns. Doggett calls to them to back off and lower their weapons, but one guard shoots Absalom through the forehead, killing him instantly.
Doggett is in Skinner's office. Skinner asks about Absalom's claim that the census records contain proof. Mulder enters and Skinner has to hold him back from roughing up Doggett. Mulder thinks Doggett is busy burying the truth. He got Absalom killed for what he knew. Later, Frohike greets Mulder at the door to Scully's apartment. It's not fair, Frohike says, that Mulder has been dead for six months and still looks better than Frohike. Byers and Langly are also happy to see him, although Langly implies that Mulder may have been involved in a "certain blessed event." The Gunmen were able to partially decrypt the file on Salt's hard drive. The data was downloaded from the Federal Statistics Center (FSC) the day Salt died. Fifteen minutes after Salt was shot, firewalls went up on the databanks of the FSC. Mulder thinks that means he's right and that they would kill to protect what is in the files. Unless Mulder can find a password, there is no way to get into the data. What is on the hard drive is apparently just a directory structure. Scully has gotten the Gunmen to try to convince Mulder to let this one go, but Mulder remarks that this is America - just because you get more votes doesn't mean you win.
Doggett approaches his friend, Rorer as Rorer is jogging. rorer compliments Doggett for dodging a bullet. Doggett wants to know if he is being used. Rorer can't tell him that, but he can tell him three words. Later, Doggett stops Scully outside her apartment building. He can't go upstairs because Mulder doesn't trust him. Doggett tells her that Salt had a computer diskette that he was trying to get to the President, according to Doggett's source. The password for the data is "fight the future." Scully goes inside, where Mulder is waiting. She hesitates, but tells him of Doggett's information.
Someone knocks on Doggett's door - it is Skinner. Scully called, beside herself. Mulder somehow got access to a password to a federal database filled with names of people of a certain genetic profile being tracked using the US Census. Doggett confesses that he gave Scully the password, but now he doesn't know which side he is helping. He declined to tell Skinner more. At the FSC, Scully is parked outside in a car when Doggett knocks on her window. Mulder wouldn't listen to her. Doggett tells her to leave. She thinks she can't do that to Mulder, but Doggett tells her to do it for herself. He thinks he may have set Mulder up. Doggett runs into the FSC. Mulder and the Gunmen are inside, working to penetrate the FSC security.
With the Gunmen's help, Mulder gets inside without the security guards noticing. Doggett finds the guard's office empty. Mulder arrives at the computer room and the Gunmen remotely open the locks. He uses a workstation to access the data and prepares to e-mail the data. Doggett pounds on the door, which is now locked again, calling that Mulder's life is in danger and to get out of the room. Mulder ignores him. Doggett fires his gun through the glass door, jumps through the door and again warns Mulder of the danger. Mulder thinks Doggett is trying to protect the data, which Mulder says proves that aliens are targeting certain people based on their genetic profile for abduction and replacement by alien facsimiles. He begins to send a copy to the Washington Post. Guards drive up in military vehicles. Scully sees them arrive and uses her cell phone to warn the Gunmen that Mulder has to get out. Mulder again thinks Doggett has set him up, but Doggett says they've both been set up and they will both be killed. Langly radios to Mulder that the data has been trapped and can't be uploaded for transmission. Byers has a long shot idea for how they can get out. The guards storm into the computer room and Doggett and Mulder are not there. They are hiding above the suspended ceiling.
Rorer is jogging again. As he stops at a drinking fountain, Doggett approaches him. Why shouldn't Doggett expose Rorer? Skinner is walking toward them across the park. If Rorer walks, Skinner will see to it that Rorer's name goes in lights. Rorer asks if Doggett exposes him, where will he get his answers? Doggett is standing on the tip of an iceberg, he says. It's not about Mulder, Rorer says, it's about the truth. Doggett has it all right in front of him in the X-Files. Rorer says he is just trying to point Doggett in the right direction. As Doggett walks away, we see that Rorer has a lump on the back of his neck.
Vienen. On an oil-drilling platform at sea, the workers are in a bar/lounge/restaurant area. The TV goes out and the drill rig boss, Bo Taylor, hits the TV, causing it to work again. One of the workers, Simon do le Cruz, goes off by himself to a shop where another man is repairing a radio. Simon carries a knife from the kitchen. In the lounge, the TV goes out again and pounding on it doesn't fix it. Taylor goes to find the rig's communications officer. He finds Simon battering the radio. The Communications man is dead. Simon is there, and is clearly frightened. Taylor's body begins to glow and Simon screams.
At FBI Headquarters, Doggett finds the door to the X-Files office locked. He unlocks it and enters to find Mulder looking through the file drawers, researching the recent death of an oil worker. Doggett understands that Mulder is interested, but points out that he is not assigned to The X-Files. Simon's body washed ashore with serious burns. The oilrig's communications officer is also reported as missing. The medical examiner said the burns are consistent with radiation burns. Doggett is well aware of the files on the Black Oil that is radioactive and can allegedly take over human bodies, but he is not convinced about it. The phone rings - it is Scully in Kersh's office. There is an oil executive there who says somebody in the X-Files office contacted him. It was Mulder, working unofficially.
Mr. Ortega is waiting in Kersh's office, and Kersh is unhappy that Mulder has been investigating the case. They have a sensitive situation - the company has located what appears to be a huge new oil reserve, which may spread into Mexican territory. In order to diffuse the possible international situation, Kersh reluctantly agrees to have the case investigated. He sends Doggett, who arrives at the platform by helicopter, 150 miles out to sea. A new communications specialist also arrives. Doggett discovers that Mulder is already there. Taylor tells the two agents that Simon went crazy and tried to blow up the rig, causing a gas valve to explode, also killing the communications chief. When Mulder and Doggett aren't looking, viewers see that Taylor has black oil in his eyes. Later, in private, Mulder and Doggett argue. Mulder isn't supposed to be there. Both agree that Taylor is lying.
Scully does an autopsy on Simon's body. In his brain, she found evidence of the alien virus, but it is dead. What killed it? Scully demands an evacuation of the oilrig, in case the virus is loose. The new communications specialist is working on the radio, which is still nonfunctional, when Taylor enters. There is some sort of high frequency interference being received over a large range of channels. Taylor knocks the man out and black oil drips out of Taylor's eyes and mouth, infecting the communications man. Later, Scully uses the now working radio to send a message to the oilrig and is surprised to learn that Mulder is there. He suggests that Kersh doesn't need to know that he is there. She confirms that the virus was in the body but is dead. Could the
Mulder concludes that the fire that damaged the radio equipment was arson. apparently having reached agreement with Diego. He says there is no evidence of any disease and if they can't give him any. Everybody in the rig is in danger. the news is announced to the workers that Doggett has ordered the rig has been quarantined . cells used to fight virus. Scully counters that communications is out so the order lifting the quarantine can't be delivered. Scully finds a large number of T-Cells in Simon's blood. Later. Simon may have had a genetic immunity to the virus because he is from a rare group of indigenous Mexican Indian people. since the black oil is radioactive itself. As the sun sets on the platform. on fire. Doggett overhears part of the conversation and demands from Mulder to know what is happening.
Mulder has reviewed the crew manifest. Mulder grabs a fire extinguisher and as Doggett runs down the hall to get another. an alarm goes off.
Doggett and Diego continue to talk.nobody can leave or arrive at the rig. The body should have been well on its way back to Mexico by now. As they talk. Later. It's the radio room. Scully thinks the rest of the rig workers killed him because he was a threat.radiation have killed it? It seems unlikely. Kersh threatens Scully and Skinner that they are running out of mistakes. knocking him down and beginning to drip oil. Scully shows Simon's body to Ortega. The workers all grumble. Kersh got a call from Martin Ortega about the rig being shut down. in English and Spanish. Maybe Diego is hiding because he knows what is going on. he'll call in the crew and rotate a fresh crew to the platform.
Kersh and Skinner visit Scully in the morgue. Mulder thinks the new oil complex is already being pumped and that the oil is filled with the virus. "They" have to be stopped before it is too late. Kersh intends to order the quarantine lifted. Who? The flying ships are coming. Doggett promises to help Diego get home. Mulder claims he doesn't know what the oilrig workers are hiding.
. Nobody has any idea where he might be. "They" are coming. Doggett says if Diego stays there. Diego pokes him to see if his blood is red. Diego Garza. Mulder counters that Scully needs to find what killed the virus. Mulder has seen how this substance can take over a man's body. Doggett wakes up to find Diego holding a knife on him. Doggett doesn't speak very good Spanish and their conversation is halting. ready to infect the planet. the other workers will find him. Mulder is looking for Diego but Doggett thinks Mulder isn't giving straight answers. Diego set the fire to keep the others from using the radio. Taylor intercepts Doggett. There is one other crewmember missing. Scully wants to evacuate the rig and quarantine the people. Doggett crawls out of the space where Diego was holding him. He is a deck hand and was a friend of Simon. It could actually put Mulder and Doggett in danger if they did get word to them. It body jumps from man to man and it's not in all oil. Diego knocks him unconscious.
Mulder abruptly breaks the radio. Doggett tells Scully that only three of them on the platform are uninfected. they come to a catwalk and jump into the water as the platform explodes. Mulder is taking a fall for Doggett. Doggett is cleaning his gun on a Saturday morning when Mulder comes to his door. Lev is working late when Billy Miles enters. Ultimately. They head for the radio room and lock the door.on Mulder. Maggie. dousing the body with a chemical and setting it on fire. and when he does. to soon be rescued by a hovering helicopter. Mulder tells Doggett that the blame will be properly fixed . Taylor and his men block their way. Lizzy Gill arrives. How did this child come to be? Is it a miracle or a product of technology?
Scully's mother. Lev. Doggett is in charge now of The X-Files now. Billy kills Dr. Dr. Mulder wants the oil to stay where it is. Explosions rock the platform. Doggett will try to get the radio working while Mulder barricades the door. Scully is on the other end. a baby nurse Maggie has asked to help Scully. because apparently they would use it to signal their flying ships. Outside. Flames break out as the two agents run over catwalks and through equipment rooms. Mulder and Doggett cautiously leave the room to find out why. for the X-Files. The Zeus Genetics building has burned and Mulder

Mulder piles furniture against the door as Doggett gets the radio working.but Mulder arrives and knocks Taylor unconscious. saving Doggett. He had to prevent the oilrig workers from using the radio. They hear the chopper arrive and continue making their way up to the deck of the platform. In one area. They find Diego's body.
Essence. Lev's work has been fruitful. burned. Doggett again finds Mulder in the office. but his work is done. It has. He is out of the FBI. Mulder walks out the door as the episode ends. is helping decorate Scully's apartment for a baby shower. The episode begins with a narration by Mulder about the miracle of life – or is it just nostalgia for something commandeered by science. the oil workers gather can begin to break down the door. Doggett has seen the oil for himself. While the shower is going on. Doggett has been called to Kersh's office. the hammering on the door stops. At Zeus Genetics. Mulder thinks that the workers are about to blow the rig. The choppers are on the way to evacuate the platform. Doggett calling to Diego as they go.
Back at the FBI office. Lizzy replaces the pills in Scully's prescription bottle. but Mulder orders that the helicopters not land. The oil company has lost the right to drill on that undersea oil complex. The oilrig workers are no longer outside the radio room.
who tosses Mulder through a glass panel. Mulder phones Scully. and everything is fine. They gain access to the office. believing that nobody is there.
The two visit the FBI evidence analysis facility which is sifting through the debris from Zeus. Doggett fires his gun at Billy's chest. Mulder and Doggett go to question Parenti. who has to leave the shower to answer. Parenti is packing the things in his office when Billy enters. Scully takes her perscription pills as Lizzy is about to leave. Parenti actually is there. Skinner asks Mulder about the fatherhood of Scully's baby. They were funded with government money from men who are all dead now. Scully is checked out at the hospital. and when he looks out again. where she cleans a cut over Mulder's eyebrow. who says that for ten years she has been a scientist working on a secret human cloning project. She catches Lizzy substituting more prescription pills. Mulder has no idea and Skinner stresses that he needs answers. While on the phone. which Lizzy claims to have no knowledge of. In Parenti's office Doggett finds many glass containers with preserved fetuses. The babies only survived a couple of days. Mulder storms
. Lizzy says Scully's child is very special – a perfect human child with no human frailties." Doggett counters that Billy bled red blood when he was shot. we're almost at an end. Lizzy arrives while they are talking and from another room calls Haskel to report that there is trouble – that the agents are asking all the right questions. they find the doctor's head in one of the glass canisters. Outside. Mulder thinks Billy is an alien "human replacement. "Good. Skinner and Mulder are there.
Dogett arrives at the crime scene where Haskel's head has been found. They were successful with a clone combining human and alien DNA. Mulder finds Billy in the office. Lev's co-founder of Zeus Genetics was Dr. Mulder speculates that Billy is something new. She tells him that Scully trusts her and Haskel replies. but they provided tissue and stem cells for other work. Lizzy is picked up to Duffy Haskel. who was Scully's obstratician for the first two-thirds of her pregnancy. Lev. too. Skinner. When Mulder and Doggett arrive to further question Parenti.wants to be involved because it's the place where Scully thought they were creating alien babies. meeting with a patient. Gene. Doggett and Mulder go to Scully's apartment. severed from his body. Doggett ducks into an office. Parenti. All of the Zeus staff is accounted for but Dr. but Billy keeps coming. Skinner says the building has been determined to be an illegal medical facility for the purpose of human cloning and that prenatal records indicate that Lev and Parenti were monitoring Scully's pregnancy."
Dr. Doggett's friend. Mulder and Doggett gather at Skinner's office to question Lizzy. The replacement pills were just vitamin supplements. Haskel is attacked by Billy. Parenti says they are babies with birth defects. resents that it was Mulder who initiated the search. Billy has disappeared. and the X-Files show that aliens bleed green.
Billy approaches from the other end of the hall. Mulder leaps to the conclusion that this truth is that there is a higher power.
Mulder arrives at Scully's apartment and tells her to pack a bag quickly because she is in danger. a God. He is going to do everything he can to protect her baby. Krycek gets her to the garage and Reyes drives off with Scully. slowly negotiating the curves of the parking garage. Krycek says that there are others just like Billy and that they are virtually unstoppable. Billy falls into a garbage truck. several stories below. Gene waives Reyes on and she drives off with Scully. who is on her way to the airport in a taxi. She diverts to the FBI building. it
. The lights go out in Scully's apartment and Mulder and Scully run. They all gather again in Skinner's office. Billy Miles' remains are brought into a medical examiner's lab. Gene stops them at the parking garage exit to the street. but he can't do that at her apartment. Doggett's friend. offering to give himself up. Why do they want Scully's baby? They are afraid of it. In the pulverized remains. Viewers see that Gene has a bump on the back of his neck. Krycek asked Skinner to kill Scully's baby (a few episodes ago) because he wanted to destroy the truth. Doggett waits for her in the parking garage and phones to Skinner and Mulder to bring Scully down when he sees Reyes' taxi pull up. Billy is recovering rapidly. Mulder and Scully decide to go with Krycek. He leaves it on the counter when he leaves the room.
Doggett calls in help. however. Krycek says that there is no hospital that is safe enough for Scully.
Late May 2001
Existence. On the roof of the building. including agent Monica Reyes. Each time it spins. driven by Krycek. As Reyes drives up. but Billy is not there. Skinner encounters Billy. They are working to end the resistance to the alien's return to the planet. Billy heads up the stairs. The piece of metal spins of its own accord. Gene. Although Krycek's car completely passed over Billy's body. tells Doggett that Billy has called in from Dr. Mulder runs up and knocks Billy over the edge of the building. Doggett phones to report that Billy is not where he said he would be. Parenti's office. he is struck by another car. Doggett takes a SWAT team to Parenti's office. Krycek calls out that they don't have much time and in a split second. As Billy approaches. Scully's car is blocked in by two other cars. the doctor finds what appears to be a metallic vertebra. Skinner and Mulder leave Scully with Krycek and head out to intercept Billy. The body was crushed after falling into a garbage truck. because they realize that it could be greater than them. As they head down the hall. Billy is seen in the parking garage and Doggett tells Skinner and Mulder to take Scully back up in the elevator.out.
Her labor is beginning. saving Reyes. Billy appears out of the dark and attacks her but the park ranger.
Scully and Reyes arrive at Democrat Hot Springs. Melissa. Reyes is concerned that she has never delivered a baby and there will not be facilities where they are going. does not lift a hand to help Skinner. Reyes sees some kind of bluish light in the distance. created to aid in the repopulation of the planet. but she eventually gives them the benefit of the doubt and volunteers her first aid kit. Mulder points out that Rorer didn't say HOW they intend to stop Billy. They are in Georgia. Mulder doesn't want Doggett to tell anyone where Scully is . Reyes sees someone outside. and to go get further supplies.
Scully is riding in a car drives by Reyes. Doggett tells Mulder about his conversation with Rorer. making clear that Doggett doesn't trust Rorer. where they hope Billy cannot find them. and the chip in the back of her neck was used to make her pregnant with the first organic version of the super soldier. Doggett is wondering whether the fact that he knows where Scully is will catch up with him. Krycek can't explain it. Scully asks Reyes if she is feeling any "vibrations. Scully comes outside to see what is happening. Reyes talks about needing mood music. They meet and RorerRorerRorer tells Doggett that both Billy and Scully's baby are products of a cold war effort to create a super soldier. but feels her first contraction.not even Mulder. Doggett doesn't believe it is possible. as if creating a new backbone . who has just returned. Mulder is with Skinner in the hospital when Doggett arrives. Outside. Reyes goes outside to get water from a pump well. It used to be a popular spot among the rich. Skinner is seriously wounded.
Reyes has the house cleaned up and arranged for the labor. reminding Scully of her sister. Video from a surveillance camera shows Billy Miles leaving the morgue. Only Doggett knows where they are. Skinner barely escapes Billy by jumping into an elevator and Krycek. Mulder and Doggett are with Skinner and Krycek in Skinner's office. suggesting whale songs. It turns out to be a female park ranger.
.apparently Billy's body is rebuilding itself out of almost nothing. The ranger is skeptical of the claims that she is talking to two federal agents hiding from a very dangerous man. They begin making plans for Scully's labor. Billy shows up in the FBI building causing Krycek and Skinner to run.multiplies itself. The glowing blue light is still there in the distance." but she can't identify it. At FBI headquarters. impressing Scully. Agent Crane gives Doggett the message that Knowle Rorer wants to talk to Doggett. RorerRorer wants to stop Billy before he can get to Scully." She says something feels "off.some new kind of alien. an abandoned community in Georgia where Doggett was born. Scully's abduction was by the military. The aliens think Scully's baby is a threat to their plans. but says Billy is somehow a human replacement . It is night and the rooms are dark and dirty. shoots Billy. already in the elevator.
" Reyes sees Billy getting up from the ground. When Krycek continues to reach for the gun that has fallen out of his hand. Crane runs for the truck while Rorer runs for his own vehicle. He is holding a gun on Mulder and indicates that he plans to kill Mulder. Doggett relents and directs Mulder to Democrat Hot Springs in Northern Georgia. Billy
Mulder says he has to get to Scully and protect her. Doggett sees Rorer talking with Agent Crane outside Deputy Director Kersh's office.Skinner is there. Reyes chooses her moment and smashes the ranger over the head with a pot in which they have been boiling water."
Upstairs. but he hoped Mulder would win somehow. Doggett slips downstairs to Skinner's office . Rorer and Krycek must all be in league. As she screams with pain. even though it is at night.In the FBI parking garage. Crane begins to get up. the last time in the forehead. Billy and the others have all entered the room and are watching the labor. says. Crane chasing him. grabbing at Doggett's throat. running to escape them. Skinner ends up driving past a roof support pillar. who has entered the parking garage unobserved. The baby is born. Scully is in great distress. As Krycek begins the pull the trigger.
Scully is in labor. but Reyes notices a lump on the back of the ranger's neck. Crane jumps on top of Skinner's car and beats in a window. Krycek says they have been on the same side all along and could have killed Mulder many times. Scully is also screaming to not let them take her baby. He just got out of the hospital. encountering Skinner who turns and runs with him. shoots Krycek. Doggett encounters Rorer and Crane. Mulder concludes. The car bounces into another support pillar and explodes in flame. Skinner shoots him twice more. saying that he will "get it. his car bouncing right over Crane. Mulder and Doggett see Rorer in a car with Krycek. They know where Scully is.

He slips into William’s room and prepares a syringe with a very long needle. If Miller were really Mulder. The drug he prepares was in the package he picked up in the alley. Doggett’s theory is that Miller is really Mulder. He wants to hold the boy FOR Mulder. He won’t tell her his real name. The tests show that Miller’s blood type matches with Mulder but there are physiological differences that may or may not be the result of Miller’s condition.
