The three of them are fighting. One scientist goes into the turbine room to make some changes. The door closes behind him. The janitor starts working at the computer and turns the turbine on with the scientist in the chamber. Roland erases some math on the board. He writes a new problem. The turbine reaches speeds of over Mach 6 and inhales the scientist. Scully and Mulder are brought in. They speak with the two remaining scientists and the project leader. Then they go to speak with Roland. They don’t get any answers but Mulder takes a paper he was writing on. A handwriting expert can’t match Roland’s writing to what’s on the white board either. Roland is having another memory flash. At the lab, one of the scientists is working. Someone enters the code on the lab door. Roland cracks him over the head with his coffee cup.

At the college, Dr. Grable’s body is in a cryogenic capsule. The temperature on his unit fluctuates randomly. Based on the file Mulder thinks that Roland and Dr. Grable are twins. Mulder has a computer artist do some comparison and confirms they are twins. He goes back to talk to Roland. Roland doesn’t want to tell him about his dreams because they are bad. He shows him a photo of Dr. Grable and he starts getting very upset and hitting himself in the head and screaming. He runs into the bathroom again. Mulder explains psychic connections to Scully. He tells her that Grable isn’t dead because of the cryogenics chamber he’s in. The project manager was spying on them through the cameras. He goes to Dr. Grable’s cryo-crypt and reprograms it to slowly warm up. Roland is somewhere working in a notebook and gets a flash of a temperature. Scully gets the records proving that they are indeed identical twins. Scully gets a call from the cryo facility. She learns the capsule has been messed with. Roland is back at the lab working on the turbine. It’s up to Mach 13. He gets flashes of the temperature being fixed. The project manager walks in on him.
