Favorite Quotes:

* Eddie: Whoever built this did not want anyone to get past this bulkhead.

* Stan: There’s definitely something back there.
Patrick: Yeah, but it may not be what you want to be.

* Greybeard: It’s getting damn weird back there. I can take my hearing aids out and still here strange noises.

Synopsis: Patrick and Kristen are digging through the wood pile. He finds a board that has the symbol. The portal had a bulkhead too. In the mine, Jay sees something. The investigators go through their notes and research. They think the spirits haunting the mine are that of the Chinese Miners. In the mine blasting continues. Once the dust clears they begin to bar down. Patrick and Kristen gear up to join the miners. They all head in to investigate and take a cautious approach. Kristen takes photos and Patrick checks EMF. It’s all over the place. Kristen realizes that they have been separated from Stan and Eddie. They’ve gone to the end of the tunnel and find a very large wall that is clearly man-made. They call for Kristen and Patrick. Patrick finds some symbols on the bulkhead. Back above ground Jamol feels them a scary lunch. Greybeard wants to do more sampling. They all discuss the noises they are hearing and what they are seeing. Back at the strange bulkhead readings of everything are all over the place and strange sounds are emanating from the wall out into the mine. Eddie manages to chip away the corner of it and a rush of air comes out. It smelled like something decomposing. Eddie suddenly screams out in pain. He rips off his jacket and then his shirt. It’s bright red and burning over a large area of his side. They call it and exit the tunnel. Later that night around the campfire they have a group discussion and express their concerns. Stan tells the group about the wall. Eddie doesn’t want to talk about what happened but he’s clearly distressed. They decide to blast through the man-made wall. Patrick and Kristen go back in to double check and make sure nothing was missed. They do another EVP session. During it there is some creeping growling that is sporadic and something falls. The K2 keeps fluctuating. They arrive at the bulkhead. Kristen continues to ask questions. They start to hear some intense growling coming through the hole in the stone wall. It’s actually so strong that the walls and the entire area vibrated. They are freaked out enough to leave. The next morning the duo meet with the team and bring them up to speed. They show the photo of Eddie’s injury and also the wood they found from the portal door. Then they go over the different types of activity that have been going on in the mine. The EVP of the scary growl is played. Kristen tells the guys that they don’t feel that going back there is safe. Stan calls for a vote. The two head back to the PI Shack. Kirsten and Patrick see that the crew has voted to go back in the mine. They suit up as quickly as possible and grab their gear. They race in after to try and help them stay safe. It’s not the whole crew, just a few of them who haven’t seen the wall yet. Patrick and Kristen meet up with the crew in the mine. Bucket hears something. Stan hears something like a voice. But suddenly, there is creaking and groaning and growling. Rocks start falling and you can hear the mine starting to collapse. Everyone runs for their life. As Stan runs out last the whole mine explodes behind him. Stan declares it a rock burst. All the gear is trapped in the mine. The entire mine has now collapsed. Nothing more can be done. However, all the miners are safe and alive. To appease the spirits, they decide on a monument. It’s overlooking the entire valley. As they pay their respects to the monument and fallen miners the rain begins to fall. That night everyone packs up, says their goodbyes and heads home.

Favorite Quotes:

* Charlie: If I were in any real danger Don wouldn’t let me go. You know that.

* Charlie: It just seems like it’s all some kind of a sport to you.

* Charlie: You have an epidemic of copycat snipers.

Synopsis: A sniper looks down the barrel of his scope picking out a target, then fires. Don and his team are on scene. Charlie analyzes the data and pinpoints where the sniper was shooting from. Agent Edgerton also joins them. At headquarters’ Don gives the team the rundown. David runs in with a tip. At the house, Charlie and Amita are working on the ballistics. The tip is on a vehicle and it gives them a possible suspect. They hit his address with a search warrant. He’s not there but a large cache of guns and a defeated girlfriend are. Charlie gets a call, there is a new shooting. David and Terry interview a victim at the scene. Edgerton teaches Charlie about sniper techniques. Terry informs them there are two snipers. They catch the first suspect and interrogate him. Turns out he’s an informant. As the team patrols, it’s a ghost town. No one is willing to go out and possibly be shot. Alan brings Don lunch at work. He expresses his concerns about Charlie going to scenes. There is another shooting. Edgerton thinks Charlie might have been right all along. At the house, Charlie and Amita continue to try and crunch numbers. Back at Don’s office, Charlie does a presentation of the data, they are increasing in rate. His analysis demonstrates that it was a different shooter for each attack. It’s a chain of copycats. Don regroups and tries to solve each case individually. He solves each case. However, more cases are happening. Charlie thinks that some cases are linked to one sniper and others are just viral activity. He wants to learn to shoot a rifle to understand the mechanics. Alan and Larry play chess together. At the range, Charlie isn’t doing too well until Don tries a different technique and he hits the bullseye. At the office, the skill level of each shooter is assessed. He has detected a pattern that four shootings were done by the same person. The team narrows their search to try and find a common denominator. Don changes focus from the victims to where the shots were fired as it wasn’t about the victims. They were chosen at random. They come up with a suspect, Nathan. David interviews his mother and she kicked him out just before the shootings started. Information comes in about the suspect. He also picks a new location to shoot from. The locations he’s shooting from are failed jobs. They narrow down to two locations and request LAPD back up. Terry spots the van at their location. They start clearing the area. SWAT arrives and so does a helicopter. The suspect looks out the window and sees police and no targets. Until a car pulls up with Charlie. David gets him on the ground as the sniper starts shooting at him. Edgerton was waiting though and he takes the shot and gets the sniper. Back at the house Don talks with Alan. They just talk about his trip to the range and choose not to tell Alan that Charlie almost got shot. The three work together staining the house.

In Tennessee, a man is driving a semi-truck. His radio station is tuned to a channel where they are talking about alien sightings. His truck is disabled and he opens fire. Mulder and Scully are on scene to investigate. He finds something that triggers his meter and he bags some. Scully tries to explain it away to no avail. His stopwatch test shows two different times. The two meet with the truck driver. Suddenly, the driver, Mulder and Scully are unceremoniously kicked out of the county. The two get on the bus and head out of town. Mulder takes Scully and they go to visit The Lone Gunman. They discuss Gulf War Syndrome and that its caused by a coating used on the missiles. At the office, the two are taking, but Scully finds something that freezes her in her tracks. Mulder is back at his apartment, he puts a blue light in his window as a signal. He gets a call that hangs up and goes to meet with Deep Throat. He wants to know who’s listening to them. Deep Throat gives him a folder. It’s the transcript of what happened to the pilot over Iraq. At the office, Scully storms in stating the truck driver and his story is bogus. Based on what she has found they determine that it was an alien transport. The truck is heading towards Colorado, they will try to intercept it. Mulder returns home to find Deep Throat in his apartment. He gives him more information. It’s a photo of a UFO. Scully determines the photo is fake. Scully puts her briefcase down but leaves it standing, she gets coffee and when she returns it’s laying down. She finds Mulder who tells her she is right; the photo is fake. Mulder meets with Deep Throat again at an aquarium and confronts him about the photo. He’s impressed that he debunked the photo. The transcript was a fake too. At his apartment, Mulder goes on a massive search for any listening bugs. He even takes the covers off of the electric sockets and finds a bug. Scully arrives and he shows it to her. Mulder and Scully are being followed so they take action to lose their tails. At the airport, she buys two tickets, one with her credit card and one with cash. Mulder sees the tail while driving. He runs a light to lose the tail. He heads to the airport too. The two meet in Las Vegas. Scully found the truck, it’s still moving. They finally catch up to it and follow it at a safe distance. Suddenly, the radio goes crazy, there is bright lights and the car stops working. The truck is stopped to and the back doors are open. At the back of the truck there was a holding area for the being that was on the UFO. It’s clearly escaped. Mulder’s stopwatches tell him that it was a hoax again. They go back to the hotel and regroup. The new data they have received shows UFO sightings all along the route that the truck has been taking. While searching a new zone they come upon a group of people having a UFO party. They get infomed of a power plant the aliens have been hovering over. They see the truck driver exit the power plant. Mulder calls The Lone Gunman. He needs them to hack the security and get them in. It works but not for long. He takes off and she provides a distraction. He finds what he is looking for, only it’s an extermination chamber. Deep Throat appears and dismisses the guards. Deep Throat tells him the truth about Roswell and that it let all governments to come to a pact to exterminate them. Deep Throat confirms that he has killed an alien. He gives Mulder information he shouldn’t as a way of atoning for killing it. Both are released.

Book: Whirlwind (X-Files #2) by Charles Grant

A woman who owns a ranch stumbles across a pair of bodies. The fact that they are bodies is all that she can make out. Mulder and Scully are brought in to figure out what happened.

While in town nothing seems to make sense. The coroner takes them aside and tells them what really happened to the bodies versus what she was made to put in her report. More people die in this strange matter. Then an attack is made on Mulder, but he survives.

The suspect list is not long as the victims don’t seem to connect. The sheriff is not very helpful. Mulder tries to enlist the help of the local Native American tribe as well. No one seems very excited to solve this case.

What is killing these animals and people? Why do they look as if they have been scoured? Will Mulder and Scully be the next victims? Is the killer a human or a supernatural entity?
