Synopsis: Two men are on a ranch in a storm. They find a dead cow. Some crazed animal attacked one of the men. The other shoots it. However, a man is laying shot on the ground instead of an animal. Mulder and Scully visits the man who did the shooting. He tells them what happened. The son’s injuries could not have been caused by a human. The son takes the two out to the corral. On the way, he tells them about all the strangeness that had been going on for the last few months. In the corral, Mulder finds some interesting footprints. He also finds a piece of skin-like material. They head to the reservation to try and examine the body. The Sheriff finds them. The three go to the Sheriff’s office. Mulder asks about the legend that was referenced. Scully sees some interesting scar tissue. Mulder looks at his teeth and finds fangs. Mulder wants to have an autopsy done but the Sheriff refuses. Later that evening, the funeral is beginning. Scully is suspicious of Mulder. He shows her the very first x file. It’s eerily identical to this case and several others in the same area over many decades. Scully explains it away as the psychosis of a person believing they are a werewolf. Scully tries to give her condolences to the deceased sister, but she wants no part of it. However, she gives Scully one of his possessions. As the funeral continues, the son who was attacked, comes to show his respects. Back at Parker’s ranch, the father is smoking on the porch. He hears something and then gets attacked. The next morning, Scully determines he was attacked by a large predator. The son and the sister are both missing. Mulder is walking through outskirts of the ranch. He finds a path of hair and another sample of the same weird skin. Scully is walking around the barn area and is greeted by a mountain lion in a cage. As she walks around she sees the son laying in the field. She brings him back, puts him in the car and takes him to the hospital. Mulder talks with the Sheriff and gets taken to meet someone with answers. At the hospital, Scully talks with the son. He tells her he got drunk and remembers nothing. She breaks the news to him that his father is dead. She also tells him he looks as if he was attacked by animal and she thinks it’s suicide. Mulder speaks with the man who accosted him in the bar. The man speaks of one of the x files that he has, the Watkins case. Watkins had been attacked by an evil spirit that could change them into a beast and it turned him into an evil spirit as well. He then tells of his experience. And also how the curse, or disease, is transmitted and also passed on. They catch Gwen. She tells them that she saw Parker’s murder. She’s hysterical. Mulder calls the hospital to speak with Scully, but he finds that she has left. The doctor tells him that the blood work was strange. Some of his father’s blood type was in him and that can only be ingested. Scully is driving him home and he opens his eyes, they change. Once inside, he tells her he feels sick and asks for help into the bathroom. The Sheriff and Mulder race to get to the house. In the bathroom, he starts to change into the creature. He suddenly breaks through the bathroom door as the monster and scaring the daylights out of Scully. Mulder and the Sheriff arrive. Mulder enters and with his flashlight finds scratches. Mulder goes through the house trying to find Scully. Instead, he catches a glimpse of the monster. He finally finds Scully. As they try to get to safety they hear the growling. Downstairs, the animal jumps at them and the Sheriff shoots it. It’s the son. Back at the Sheriff’s office the three say goodbye. Ish, the man who had the answers also says goodbye, as well as, “see you in about 8 years.”
