Synopsis: A pilot is flying over Iraq and he sees something in the sky. He’s suddenly under attack. He locks on with weapons and shoots it down. It crashes in Turkey on an American military base. 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.

The agent that is with her gets shot. Scully fires three shots at him, taking him down. The shooter dies in the ER. The FBI agent has been down for 12 minutes. The robbers body bounces as if it’s been shocked just like Jack. Jack’s heart starts beating again. It’s now two days later. Jack wakes up. He pulls out all of his tubes and steals the clothes of another patient. When he looks in the mirror, he sees Jack the FBI guy, but he’s actually the bank robber. He goes to the morgue and looks at his dead body. He takes the wedding ring off. Mulder joins Scully. Scully thinks that Willis has some post trauma psychosis. They discuss his previous job at a women’s prison. He had an affair with an inmate. Mulder realizes that the fingers were cut off to get the wedding ring. Willis heads to wear he and Lula live. Strangely, his tattoo is starting to appear on the arm of his new body. Mulder asks how long Jack was flat lined. He states that both men went into cardiac arrest at the same time. Scully and Mulder go to the University of Maryland to speak with a professor about near death experiences. Scully reveals that she had dated Jack for a year and that they share the same birthday. Jack/Warren goes to visit Lula’s brother. Tommy realizes it’s Warren and then is killed. Mulder and Scully go to the new crime scene. Jack/Warren shows up at the crime scene. Mulder pops in to visit Warren/Jack with a birthday card for Scully. Mulder gives Scully the card, but her birthday is not for two months. Jack/Warren did not know it wasn’t Scully’s birthday. Mulder compares the new signature to a known signature and it doesn’t match. But Scully still doesn’t believe it. Jack/Warren gets a call at his desk, he’s got a tip about the case. Scully goes with him. She is in apartment 207. He sees Lula and heads after her. She runs into the basement and they split up to search for her. Scully finds her and takes her down. Jack/Warren turns on Scully and she finally realizes it’s not actually Jack but Warren. When she awakes she hears Warren taking to Lula trying to prove who he is. Mulder and another agent check the apartment building for Scully and Willis, they have been missing for 12 hours. Warren calls Mulder and lets Scully say one word. Scully starts telling Jack about shared memories. Lula comes in and calms him down. He’s been drinking a lot of soda. Apparently, Jack is diabetic. Warren did not know this and is now symptomatic of impending diabetic coma. Mulder figures out the area that they are most likely in. He steals the insulin but Lula stops her from giving it to him. Lula admits that she set up Warren. She was happy to be rid of him. Lula calls the FBI to try and make a deal. She wants a million dollars in 24 hours. Mulder kept her on the line long enough to trace the call. But Lula called from Scully’s cell phone. Mulder has the audio from the call analyzed. They hear a small plane taking off. In the office several people criticize Mulder, Ruskin defends him. With this information he’s narrowed the area down to 3 square miles. Back in captivity Jack wakes up and talks to Scully. He’s now trying to remember from that memory she was trying to trigger. He passes out and Warren comes back. There is knock at the door. It’s a preacher selling bibles. In fact, it’s an officer who has now confirmed that that is Lula. When Lula comes in Scully tells her that Jack is dead. She drops her wedding ring on him and he suddenly wakes up and grabs her gun. The place is surrounded by FBI and other agencies. He shoots Lula and then dies. The tattoo on his arm fades away. Back at the office Mulder gives Scully the watch she got Jack. Scully is upset though. She notices the watch is not working. It stopped at 6:47, the exact time Jack went into cardiac arrest.

Synopsis: We see Mars photos, including a weird sculpture that looks like a face. In an apartment a man has flashbacks of encountering something. A space shuttle is about to be launched. At 3 seconds to launch it is aborted. Mulder and Scully each lunch and a woman with a briefcase introduces herself as being the one who sent them the note. She thinks there is someone inside NASA guilty of sabotage. She show’s them an analysis that could be sabotage. But makes clear that that kind of damage is impossible. She reveals that her fiancé is on the next shuttle and she does not want him to die. They go to NASA and meet with Colonel Belt. They ask him about the sabotage. He does not believe there has been any. A delay in the launch is requested but denied. Mulder and Scully are invited to stay for the launch. They show the analyses to the head tech. He’s never seen it before, he’s shocked. The countdown begins for the launch. The shuttle launches without incident. The woman that met with them tracks them down at their hotel. There’s now an issue with the shuttle. They follow her back to mission control. But on the way she screams and loses control, her car flips. She’s wedged in. Mulder is able to pull her out. She tells them something came at her in the fog. Mulder and Scully drive her to mission control. Multiple systems are malfunctioning. They head to the data banks to try and trace the issue. Mulder hears someone and follows. The lights go down. They find one man, he’s trying to fix a sensor that went off. They have determined that someone is scrambling their uplink signal. They opt to switch to fly by wire mode and cut communications. They are able to reestablish contact and get the ship functioning correctly. Bell holds a press conference discussing the shuttle. Michelle tells them that he risked what he did because if they had not delivered the payload NASA would be shut down by congress. Mulder talks with Bell. He doesn’t really get answers. Belt’s back at his apartment and gets more visions and an alien/ghost/being separates from his body and floats out the window. Back at mission control the space team reports a thud and then there is a second thud. Now the ship has an oxygen leak in the main tank. Mulder and Scully try to find Belt. He’s at his apartment and doesn’t look good. They inform him about the accident. He instructs them to put on the space suits, and do several other things and deliver the payload, before they bring them back. Michelle does not agree and leaves the control center. Mulder and Scully go after her. Scully now believes that space shuttle has been sabotaged. Mulder wants to see if there is any proof that the sabotage was known. They confirm the payload is delivered and then they are informed there is some kind of ghost outside the shit. Belt starts freaking out and screaming. Michelle informs Scully and Mulder that Belt has collapsed. In his office he is under his desk have a complete break down. Belt tells them the aliens sabotaged the shuttle and one lives in him. His face changes and Michelle says it’s the face she saw in the fog. Someone comes in and informs them they are now on back up oxygen. Michelle says she has to get them down in 30 minutes before they suffocate. Belt says change the re-entry trajectory to 35 degrees so they can reenter without burning up. Michelle gives them the message with about a second left. They land safely. Belt is in the hospital. He tries to fight the alien and jumps out the window to his death.

Mulder and Scully are being sent to the base in Alaska to find out what’s going on. At the airport in Alaska they meet a geologist and two more doctors. The pilot arrives and the journey begins. They arrive at the base and find everyone but a dog dead. Mulder finds the ice cores that were drilled. No one notices but it looks like one is leaking. While they go through the base Mulder is attacked by a dog. The pilot tries to help and gets bit. Scully finds black nodules and skin irritation on the dogs neck. They all see something moving under the dogs skin. The pilot fixes his wound in the bathroom and discovers he has black nodules under his arm. Scully’s autopsy’s show the all killed each other and had a fever. Mulder shows the geologist a map. He says that the sheet is about 3000 feet deep. Notes show its double that. Scully found some weird chemicals in the blood tests. A single cell “bug” is in the ice core. They decide to do a parasitic blood and stool test. However, the pilot completely freaks out. He agrees to take the test, but then attacks Mulder and Scully jumps on him to subdue him. They see movement in his neck. The doctor with them cuts into his neck and removes the “creature” from Bear. Mulder calls for help, he’s informed that they are trapped for at least a day. Mulder is informed that Bear died when he joins the group. The creature is in a containment unit. Scully checked the dead bodies again. She found the “worm” in the hypothalamus of the brain. She found one worm still alive and it’s in a containment unit as well. Mulder and Scully talk privately. He thinks it’s a life from brought form another planet because they are over a meteorite strike crater. The doctor accuses Scully of being infected. Mulder tries to calm everyone. They all check each other…no spots. Everyone tries to get some sleep. Something wakes Mulder. The dog has escaped. Mulder hears a dripping. It’s coming from where the cores were stored. He opens the door and Murphy falls out, dead. Full scale paranoia breaks out. Everyone thinks everyone is infected. They put Mulder in solitary. Scully tries to check the back of the neck of the other two. She disarms all the guns so they can’t kill each other with them. A scientific mistake leads to a discovery. The works do not like each other. The way to kill it is it introduce another worm into an already infected host. The two worms will kill each other. They test the theory on the dog. They introduce a worm into his ear. He twitches for a little bit but it worked. The doctor confirms that he passed both worms in his stool and they’re dead. Scully goes to check on Mulder. He’s not infected. He checks her and she is not infected. The other two are completely crazy and attack both of them. But the male sees the other female is the one actually infected and saves Mulder. So they hold her down and put the other worm in her ear. They get evacuated and they all test normal so they can go home. Mulder plans to go back. He’s informed that he can’t because the base was burned to the ground.

Synopsis: At the headquarters of Eurisko a Brad and a man in a suit have a fight. A security camera spies on the man in the suit. It’s a computer system and the man in the suit states he’s going to shut the program down. The man goes in the bathroom and his sink is leaking. His phone rings and he stops to answer it. The door automatically closes and he is locked in. Swiping his key card does not unlock it. He tries the override key and gets electrocuted. The COS project he planned to shut down appears to have killed him. At the FBI office Mulder’s old partner hugs him and offers to treat Mulder and Scully to lunch. He’s brought them a case. He tells Mulder that he needs help. So Mulder and Scully go to the scene to offer their help. The COS system is watching Mulder and Scully. The elevator is having a few issues. At the scene the motherboard has been tampered with. Claude tells them about the COS (Contrail Operating System). Mulder asks him about the phones. He’s the only one who noticed the phone in the bathroom was off the hook. Back in the basement office Scully finds Mulder searching through his very disorganized desk. They join the task force meeting on the case. Jerry delivers Mulder’s profile and Scully picks up on this. After the meeting Mulder calls him out for stealing his profile. It’s clear Jerry only asked Mulder for help to ride his coat tails. Scully has the list from Claude, one name, Brad Wilszek. The pair pay Brad a visit. He shows them smart home technology. It is related to COS. At Scully’s apartment she is working on her field report. COS has hacked her computer and intercepted her field report. In their office, Jerry walks in. He apologizes to Mulder. Scully calls them both in to listen to some audio. The voice is Brad’s. Jerry wants credit for the arrest. Brad is trying to get into COS but he has been locked out. He takes off in his original Corvette. COS sees him in the elevator. Brad is in the COS mainframe at the office. He’s concerned that it’s now talking. He tries to manually kill the power to COS but it doesn’t work. Jerry is in the elevator and COS decides to take him to the top floor and drop him all the way down. Mulder is watching the video of the fatal elevator ride, clearly upset. But he also notices Brad is upset and trying to kill the system unsuccessfully. Scully comes in to check on him. Mulder tells her that Brad didn’t do it. Mulder goes to Brad’s but he’s turned away because he doesn’t have a code 5 clearance. Mulder meets Deep Throat in a park to ask about Brad. Clearly, he states the government wants his skills. He brings up artificial intelligence. Brad’s machine has artificial intelligence. Mulder visits Brad. He tells him he knows he’s protecting the machine. Brad speaks of the Manhatten Project. He doesn’t want the machine to fall into the governments hands. Mulder wants him to create a virus to destroy the machine. He tells Scully but she doesn’t believe him. Mulder goes back to see Brand and brings him a laptop. Scully is woken up by her phone and when she picks it up she hears modem sounds. She realizes someone is accessing her computer and calls the FBI tech office to get a phone trace. Scully races to Mulder at Euristo and tells him her phone and computer are being watched. They sneak into the parking garage. Before they get far a beam falls on top of the car. COS is tracking them through the entire stairwell. It kills the lights to try and slow them down. Mulder sees a security camera and covers it. Mulder boosts Scully into the vent system so she can find a way in and then unlock the stairwell door for him. Claude finds Mulder and lets him in. Scully is not doing well in the vents. COS is creating a storm to try and kill her. Claude takes him to the mainframe. Mulder asks about the B port. He plugs in a device but access gets denied. Scully, trying not to get sucked in a fan and chopped up into pieces, she starts shooting at the fan. In the mainframe, Claude turns out to be a rat. But at that moment Scully enters with her gun on Claude. She instructs Mulder to put in the disk. The virus works and the machine is no longer functioning. Mulder meets with Deep Throat again. The virus that Brad created completely wiped out all the data. No part of the artificial intelligence can be recovered. Claude is still with the mainframe trying to bring it back to life. They have 6 hours left and then it goes in the metal shredder. Lights on the machine start to turn back on.
