Synopsis: A boat is out on the Atlantic Ocean. One of the crew finds there is a problem with the toilets. He picks on the youngest crew member to unclog the plumbing. Something pulls him in and three men try to pull him out. They fail and he immediately yells for the tanks to be flushed to try and save him. Mulder is in a hotel listening to a wiretap. Another agent comes in to relieve him and send him on a case. He arrives on the scene. They take him to the body. He heads to Skinner’s office. When he storms it there’s a whole bunch of people in it. Scully finds him on a bench. He tells her he’s been thinking about leaving the FBI. Scully requests the autopsy and gets it. She finds some kind of tattoo on one arm. Some weird little silver colored wormlike thing starts coming out of the body. Down in the sewers in Jersey there are some workers doing repairs. A man is left alone in the water and he’s pulled under. The other man comes back and trhows him a rope. He manages to pull him out but he’s been injured. While he’s being examined, Mulder shows up. He’s told of the strange wound. The doctor has never seen anything like it. The wound has a center and five points. Scully calls and tells him abut the parasite. Then Mulder gets a weird call. When Mulder goes to see Scully she tells him it’s a flukeworm. There’s no other cause of death. He shows her the picture of the bite. She’s shocked. The man who got attacked in the sewer is preparing to shower. He’s brushing his teeth frantically trying to get a weird taste out of his mouth. But when he spits out the toothpaste some blood comes out too. In the shower he vomits out a flukeworm. Mulder goes to speak to the sanitation department. He shows him the flukeworm that Scully found. He’s not surprised. A man is walking on the catwalk above some of the water in the sanitation plant. He sees something that scares him. Mulder and the man in charge run out. He traps it and they actually see it. No way to describe it. Scully is working on her report and a newspaper gets slid under her door. It has an article about a bizarre accident on a Russian tanker. She realizes the writing on the dead man’s arm is in Russian. Mulder calls her. He takes her to a psychiatric facility where it’s being held. She is totally shocked at what she sees. It’s a scientific wonder. She shows him the newspaper and how she made the connection. Mulder gives Skinner his report. He tells Mulder the man attacked in the sewer died. At the psych facility they strap the flukeman to a gurney to transport it, but it escapes the straps. The Marshall pulls over to check the back for it. It hid and then it killed the marshal. It crawled to a port a potty and got in it. The next day some guy comes to clean the port a potty and he sucks the flukeman right into the cleaning tank. Mulder goes to the scene. He gets another mysterious call. The police office gets a call that the scent was tracked to a port a potty. He’s on the tanker. If it’s already been dumped in the sanitation plant, it will be trapped there. Everyone is watching and waiting. Scully calls him. She gives him bad news, it’s trying to multiply. The supervisor tracks the lines and they think it’s trying to work back out to sea. They head down into the lines to try and close and overflow gate. Mulder watches the water while he tries to work the gate, but he slips and falls in. He gets pulled under the by monster. Mulder tries to pull him out but he gets pulled back in. Mulder actually jumps in to look for him and the monster. He lets the guy go and tries to go through the gate. Mulder manages to pull the gate down chopping it in half. Mulder is back on the bench again and Scully joins him. He tells her about the second call. She’s got results on the fluke larvae. It was a cross between a human and flukeworm. It wasn’t made by nature but most likely exposure to radiation. It’s mutated somehow. The Russian freighter serviced Chernobyl. It was likely born of the radiation. We see the sewers again and the monster floats back up to the surface and it opens its eyes and breathes.

At the FBI office, Scully sees Mulder and says hi, but he ignores her. They meet up in the garage. He’s extremely paranoid. He asks her about an observatory in San Diego. He’s upset because he has no solid evidence of anything. She tries to comfort him as he even doubts if his sister’s disappearance was real. We see a flashback to Mulder playing a board game with his sister. The lights go out and the house starts shaking. There’s all kinds of lights. The door opens there is a bright light and his sister is levitated. He’s frozen as a strange figure stands at the door. He’s back in his apartment and some man comes to get him. They go to see Senator Matheson. They have an interesting meeting. He tells Mulder to go to Puerto Rico to check the station for contact. Mulder has gone missing and the Smoking Man wants to know where he went. He has arrived in Puerto Rico. He makes it to the station. Once inside he finds a machine running. Scully searches his apartment. She breaks into his computer and finds a clue. At the station, Mulder finds someone hiding and very freaking out. He doesn’t understand him, so he draws a picture of an alien. Scully has the pirint out analyzed. She learns this has happened before. Scully has figured out where Mulder has gone. The transmission starts again at the station. His companion runs outside and Mulder finds him dead of fright. Scully heads to the airport and makes to agents. She loses them and grabs a flight to Puerto Rico. He tries to do a visual autopsy. Everything starts shaking again. All different color of lights start flashing, the machine is going crazy recording a transmission. The door busts open and Mulder does everything to barricade it. The door opens, Mulder’s gun doesn’t work. He sees the same shape from when his sister was taken. The next thing he sees is Scully as he comes too. What he tells her, she’s overwhelmed by. They barely escape with their lives. Back in Skinner’s office, Mulder gets read the riot act. The Smoking Man is there too. Skinner flips and kicks him out of his office. He puts Mulder back on the same dead case. Mulder tries to play back the recording on the tape, but it’s blank. He goes back to listening to surveillance tapes.

One officer hits him with a taser, which he pulls out. He then shoots him twice. He runs and jumps into the water. Mulder is asleep on his couch when he gets a call from Deep Throat. The earlier incident is on the news. He shows it to Scully at the office. Mulder and Scully go to the scene. The Captain is not happy to see them. When they examine the car, they discover it’s not the right car. Mulder and Scully arrive at a science lab in Maryland. The scientist is not helpful. Mulder wants to continue the investigation and Scully is at her breaking point. Mulder heads home and Deep Throat meets him in front of his building. He’s disappointed. He pressures him to not give up. Back at the lab, the monkeys are agitated and the scientist is still working. He gets paid a visit by a man in a suit. The man kills the scientist. Back at the harbor, the Captain calls off the search. As the boat pulls out, the missing man surfaces. Mulder and Scully are called back to the lab. The scientists death is being written off as a suicide. They learn that he was working on the human genome. Mulder finds a container of fluid and asks Scully to analyze it. He then heads to the now dead scientists house and he breaks in. Scully takes the sample to the lab for analysis. She’s told it’s some kind of bacteria. The scientist says it is no bacteria she’s ever seen and wants to do more analysis. In the house, Mulder finds a phone number and has it traced. Outside a blue van pulls up and listens. The phone rings and it’s the missing man. But he’s gravely hurt. Mulder then gets a call back about the number, it’s a storage facility. In the ambulance, the injured man is bleeding green fluid. One of the techs does a needled decompression on his chest. But a noxious gas comes out and everyone is overcome. He escapes. Scully calls Mulder with information on the bacteria. They suspect gene therapy. He pulls up at the storage place. He finds the storage unit and unlocks it. Inside, he finds experiments in progress. Back at the lab, the scientist wakes Scully. She shows her base pairs of DNA. The bacteria has gaps in the DNA sequence. She found a fifth base pair as well. The scientist says it’s extra-terrestrial. Back at the storage area, some men in suits show up and chse Mulder. He escapes. Upon entering his apartment, the phone is ringing. It’s Scully. She tells him about the bacteria. He asks her to come pick him up. They head straight to the storage facility. They go into the storage unit together, but now it’s been cleared out. Deep Throat shows up. He tells them all about what was going on. The details of a human alien hybrid. Scully questions his reasons. He wants them to find the missing man before the suits do. Scully goes back to see the scientist, she learns she and her whole family were in a horrible accident and all are dead. Mulder goes back to the missing man’s house. He hears sounds and follows them. He’s in the attic and attacks Mulder. But a man in a suit shows up and shoots the man. Mulder passes out from the gas. The suits tie him up. Scully can’t reach Mulder and goes to his apartment. Deep Throat is there. He offers to get her into the facility with the original alien material so she can steal it and trade it for Mulder. She does get in. She goes to Level 7 Cryology. She gets into the storage area. There are many containers and she pulls the one marked “Purity Control.” When she opens the container she pulls out a small alien. She is shocked.

The child makes eye contact with the male officer and he suddenly flies out the window and lands on a car, dead. They call in Mulder and Scully. They try to get background on the officer. The little girl told the female office a man threw the officer out of the window. They use a computer artist rendering to try and figure out who the man is. The computer system has a strange glitch. Scully speaks with her mother. Her mother tells her she’s not like other kids her age. Mulder shows her the sketch of the man but she doesn’t recognize it. Scully heads back for an autopsy. Mulder suspects that the child has psychokinetic powers. He talks to her psychiatrist. She starts looking at him like he’s nuts and kicks him out. Scully begins the autopsy. When she uncovers him she finds what looks like burns. The female office arrives and she found a facial match. But the officer who it matches has been dead for 9 years. She brings the case file to Mulder at the station. He asks for the details of what happened to the officer. His injuries are the same thing that the little girl keeps doing to the dolls in therapy. The two begin investigating that murder. They speak with his former partner and don’t get much. The officer they spoke with, Tony, speaks with another person. He’s very freaked out. Turns out they were involved in Charlie’s murder. That night a bus picks up the man the Tony met with. When he gets off his scarf somehow gets stuck in the doors. The bus drivers sees it but when he tries to stop the bus he can’t. He winds up being hanged and dies. The little girl is on the bus. The mother comes down to the station.

His wife tells them he never came home last night. They have an origami collection. Turns out they were made by her ex-husband, Charlie Morris. He’s the officer killed in the Chinatown hit. The little girl finally gets hypnotized. She’s reliving Charlie Morris’s death. Scully is not happy about the results. Mulder rewatches the taped video of it, he finds some weird static. At Tony’s house, there is a knock on the door. His wife thinks it might be him. She opens the door and finds a origami giraffe. Mulder has a tech check the video. He confirms that the image was actually recorded there. The female officer comes in with the pathologist’s records of Charlie’s autopsy. He was murdered by drowning. Tony finally arrives home. He wants her to run away with him. The little girl is at the window. The tech has managed to pull the image. It’s a diver from Charlie’s saltwater tank. Mulder believes he was killed in his own fish tank. Back at Tony’s the power goes out. He goes downstairs with a gun. A power cord wraps around his legs and he loses his gun. The little girl appears. Mulder and Scully arrive at Tony’s house. They hear a racket and the wife is screaming. Scully finds another door that they are able to get in. Tony starts talking to the little girl like he’s Charlie. They make it in the house and the wife is screaming she’s trapped. Scully lets her out. They both come down stairs.

Synopsis: A group of lumberjacks are trapped in the forest. They all decide to try and make a run for it before night falls. Two men hear an overwhelming buzzing as a large group of green bugs descend on them. Mulder shows Scully a photo of the loggers. They’ve all disappeared. And so, have the people sent in to find them. Now Mulder and Scully go looking for them. They meet with a Federal Forest Service Agent. Another man joins them, he works for the logging company. They take a four-hour drive to the site. They drive over some spikes. The rest of the way they have to hike. The camp is deserted. Everything has been sabotaged. They survey the area that’s been clear cut and find a giant cocoon. Scully gets hauled up to cut it down. She is shocked to find a body in the cocoon. The logger get the generator fixed. He finds an eco-terrorist inside. Mulder comes in and stops him from killing him. Everyone is confused. He describes the bugs devouring a human. Turns out the loggers have been taking old growth trees. The logger refuses to listen and goes outside the cabin after dark. He taunts it. The next day, they recheck the trees cut down. One has a strange green ring. The ranger takes a core sample of the tree with the green ring. The logger leaves to hike to the disabled truck and radio for help. At the cabin, the ranger finds that there are tiny bugs living in the ring. He can’t identify the bug. The eco-terrorist tells them people started dying and disappearing only after that tree was cut down. The logger makes it to the truck but there isn’t a key. As he’s working on the engine he hears strange buzzing sounds. He thinks it’s the monkey wrenchers. A swarm of green bugs come out of the sky and he jumps in the truck. He hotwires it, but it doesn’t move. They come in through the vents and start attacking him. They suck him dry quite quickly. In the cabin, Scully keeps analyses the bugs. Mulder thinks that a volcanic eruption caused the weird bugs to grow. He thinks it could be an extinct species that was trapped in the tree and only released as it was cut down. The group survives another day. The eco-terrorist sneaks out and steals the gas can. Mulder catches him. Later, Mulder fixes the radio and tries to call for help. The ranger discovers the terrorist is gone and he’s furious. Scully and Mulder get into a fight. Mulder decides they have to seal the place up as best as they can. Night falls and no one sleeps.

Mulder tries to comfort her with the radio transmission for help. The gas runs out in the generator. Luckily, the sun is rising. They take one of the tires of the trashed truck at camp and head towards the truck. When they arrive, the find the logger dead in a cocoon inside. They hear the jeep with the terrorist. He came back. He tells them his friends are all dead. Everyone jumps in and tey try to make it out before sunset. However, they run over spikes and they can go no further. The bugs start to swarm him and he runs from the car. The bugs get in the car and start attacking the three. A helicopter flies in. Several vans also make their way in. They are in full hazmat suits. They find the three in the jeep still alive and evacuate them. They are taken to a quarantine center. Mulder is up and moving but Scully is still not out of the woods. The head scientist tells Mulder the forest will be hit with pesticides and burned until every bug is dead.
