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.”

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. He gives Mulder information he shouldn’t as a way of atoning for killing it. Both are released.

Synopsis: A man rolls around in a wheelchair in a prison infirmary. He hears a scream and follows the sound. He opens a door and finds his friend is dead. His life is threatened. But the supposed dead man blinks, he also appears to be missing a hand. Mulder and Scully get sent to investigate a jewelry store robbery. A lone gunman killed a saleswoman after she complied with his request. The local agent shows Mulder something. It’s Barnett. It was also the first case that Mulder caught. The evidence bag contains a note. Mulder is confused how Barnett could be back. He died in prison four years ago. Mulder has the note analyzed. It’s a 95% match to Barnett’s handwriting. The investigator reviews the video of Barnett’s capture and the case with Scully. At the office, Mulder just received a copy of Barnett’s death certificate. As Mulder leaves a kids football practice he finds his car door is open and photos of himself have been left on the driver’s seat. Mulder shows the photos to his friend, the agent. He doesn’t believe it’s Barnett, but someone messing with Mulder. While he warns Mulder to be careful Scully enters with Barnett’s will. Mulder meets with a sketch artist to try and figure out what he looks like now. He relives the memory of the trial. Scully interrupts his reverie. She pulled his prison records. She is confused that he could have died of a heart attack. His health records show now heart issues. They head to the prison to ask the man he left everything to in his will. He tells them about Dr. Ridley and how he took off his bad hand. He also wasn’t dead, he was blinking. A call comes in to their office and its Barnett. They talk and he hangs up before the trace is complete. Mulder calls Reggie and wakes him. He tells him about the prison inmate. Someone breaks in the house and strangles Reggie while he’s on the phone. He throws a note on him. Mulder tells Scully more about his friend. He points to the note left for him. The writing is analyzed again. It also matches the first note. Mulder walks back into their office to find Scully. The doctor who signed off on Barnett’s death certificate had not been a doctor in a long time. They speak to another doctor who knew of Dr. Ridley and what he had done. He lost his license to practice because he wasn’t approved to do medical trials, but he went forward with them off the books. Mulder thinks he is using inmates as research subjects. Mulder goes back to the artist. Scully is at her place typing a report and hears a creak. She hears another sound and goes for her gun. As she is going through her apartment she hears a knock. When she asks who it is, she hears a man say “Dr. Joe Ridely. The person who broke in sneaks back out. Mulder comes over as well to interview him. He tells them Barnett is the only one who survived. But he is dying as a result of his work. He admits he was able to grow a new hand for Barnett, but it’s not exactly human. He has a salamander hand now. Deep Throat meets with Mulder at a bar. They discuss Barnett. It seems that Barnett stole all Ridley’s research and the government is trying to buy it from him. At Scully’s apartment, her phone rings but she misses the call because she is in the shower. Scully takes her answering machine to work. She tells Mulder about someone who likely broke into her apartment. She had her machine printed and it had one of John Barnett’s prints on it. Barnett calls again and threatens to kill his friends one by one. They race to Scully’s friend’s cello recital. There is now a heavy FBI presence watching for Barnett. The cellist practices while it appears Barnett is tuning the piano she’s practicing next to. He takes a gun out of the tuning case and puts it in his pants. He shoots at Scully twice and Barnett takes off. He runs into the hall and takes the cellist hostage. He taunts Mulder. This time Mulder takes the shot and saves the cellist and everyone else. In the hall, Scully comes too. Her bullet proof vest saved her. At the hospital, Scully will recover. People try and save Barnett to find out where he hid the research. He dies. We see it is in a storage box at a bus station or airport.

At FBI Headquarters Mulder is reading a file. It’s about the kids, they were kidnapped. They have about 5 days to find the kids based on previous cases with the same MO. He brings up a witness who says he’s psychic and can help, but doesn’t believe him. He’s on death row. Mulder has been requested to see him and Scully wants to go with him.
