Synopsis: A police chase is taking place through warehouses and a dock. The suspect tries to run for it and they start beating him, he fights back. 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. That night she is parked on a bridge. She pulls a box out of the car with her. Deep Throat arrives as well and she walks to his car. He’s arranged to trade the alien for Mulder. They argue. Van pulls up. She quickly heads back to her car. She watches from a sideview mirror. Deep Throat hands over the parcel and then the man shoots him. They throw Mulder out of the van as they drive away. Deep Throat tells Scully, “Trust no one.” Then he dies. Thirteen days later, Scully is having trouble sleeping. Mulder calls. He tells her that the X Files is being closed. Scully is shocked. The Smoking Man puts the specimen in a box in a giant warehouse. When he closes the door the sign says it’s in the Pentagon.

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. He realizes it’s Dr. Grable working through Roland. He pulls out a gun. Roland knocks him out with a keyboard. Mulder and Scully rush to the school. The project manager is put in the turbine room and Dr. Grable/Roland start it up. Mulder and Scully run to the turbine room. Mulder asks Arthur how to stop it.

* Scully: I told you it was a signature hit.

Synopsis: At a police station a female office is just getting off. She spots a child in the alley alone. She brings her back in for another office to talk with her. 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. The female office tells Mulder that the man who just died used to be Barbola’s partner. The only connection is the drug bust in Chinatown. So the two dig into that case. Tony gets another visit. 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. Tony then confesses that he knew what they did to Charlie and that he was a part of it. Suddenly, there’s a bright light and even the fish tank is going crazy. The wife asks him to stop. The fish tank explodes. A gun was in the tank along with the diver. Tony plead guilty to quite a few charges involving Charlie’s death. The little girl has now gone completely back to normal.

Tooms continues working for animal control. He’s still hunting for his next victim. He zeroes in on one and Mulder stops him. Scully visits Det. Briggs. She asks him for anything that did not seem to fit. He tells her a 5th victim was discovered but never found. He thinks the body is in the cement of the chemical plant. Scully has the floor searched with ground penetrating radar. Briggs is there too. He finds a dirt spot and announces the body is there. Tooms finds another possible target. The spot Briggs picked out turns out to be correct. A skeletonized hand with a wedding ring is uncovered. Meanwhile, Tooms newest victim drives home and Tooms follows him. But Mulder is still following him and pulls up behind him. Mulder fell asleep in the car. When he wakes he checks the van and finds that Tooms is not in it. He’s slithered into the sewer.

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.

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.
