Mulder: Who me? I’m Mr. Congeniality.

* Scully: Mulder, stop running after your sister. This won’t bring her back.

Synopsis: Some people are sleeping outside around a fire next to a mobile home. The mobile home starts to shake violently. There are extremely bright lights and all stops. A little boy screams for his mom. She burns her hand opening the door. Her little son tells her Ruby is gone. They don’t find her. Section Chief Blevins is talking with Scully about an investigation he wants to do. Scully has not heard of it before. He hands Scully an X File, it’s about Mulder’s sister Samantha. She briefs him on what happened to Samantha. He’s going to deny the new investigation, but Scully asks to speak to Mulder first. Scully and Mulder talk. He explains where the girl went missing is a UFO hot spot. He shows her a report about girls scouts seeing a UFO decades earlier. One of those girl scouts is the mother of the missing girl. They go to talk to the mother. She introduces her son Kevin. Mulder brings up the UFO sighting. She believes the aliens took her daughter. Mulder talks to Kevin. He’s watching static on the TV. He’s writing 1’s and zero’s on a notepad. Kevin says it’s coming from the TV. The local sheriff is assuming that Ruby ran away. She was a “bad kid” so he is just assuming that what’s happened to her is a result of her behavior. When they come out they find a note on their windshield and see a lady across the street quickly walk away. They follow her and talk to her. She informs them she was supposed to meet her boyfriend, Greg Randall. He got Ruby pregnant. She tells them where he works and disappears. They go to the bar to find Greg. He’s been missing for 3 weeks. Mulder comments on his UFO tattoo. The bartender tells him about the lake and sightings there. And shows him his burned off ear. Scully sleeps in her room and people barge in. They’re looking for Mulder. They question him about where he got it and he won’t answer so they threaten him. He’s told it’s a defense satellite transmission. They leave and Scully comes in. The NSA goes to Darlene and Kevin’s house and destroys it. They haul Darlene and Kevin off. Mulder looks out the window and sees the camper. The roof is damaged from exposure to extreme heat. The boy and his mother get released. They refuse to talk to Mulder further. As they drive Mulder tells Scully that he thinks Kevin is a conduit. They go to the lake where it happened. At the campsite the closest trees are burned at the top. Sand on the beach has been turned into glass. A white wolf appears to them and Mulder follows it. He finds a pack on top of a pile of stones. He fires his weapon to clear them out. It’s a shallow grave. The victim is Greg Randall, Ruby’s boyfriend. Mulder checks out the wallet, nothing is missing but there is a doctor’s name and appointment written on sheet. The writing matches the writing on the note. The mysterious lady’s name is Tessa. She’s brought in for questioning. Scully and Mulder get her to talk a bit. The park around the lake is being searched and the lake is being dragged. They go back to see Darlene and Kevin. The door is open, the tea kettle is whistling, there’s pages of binary code on the floor. But they are not to be found. Scully goes upstairs and sees a different view of the 1’s and zero’s. They’re a portrait of Ruby. They go back to the lake and find the camper. But no one is in it. On the trail they find Darlene, Kevin’s continued on so Mulder goes after him. He’s walking towards a bright light. It’s a bunch of bikers. Kevin tells Mulder his sister is back. Scully screams for Mulder. Ruby is there but unconscious. Her test results indicate she was in a environment without gravity. As they are talking to Ruby, Darlene comes in and stops it. She doesn’t want her daughter ridiculed the way she has been her entire life.
