* Mulder: I’m not going to give up. I can’t give up. Not as long as the truth is out there.


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.
