Synopsis: A janitor is trying to work a keypad, but fails. He’s mentally disabled. A scientist helps him but puts him down. The room has scientist’s working on a jet engine project. The three of them are fighting. One scientist goes into the turbine room to make some changes. The door closes behind him. The janitor starts working at the computer and turns the turbine on with the scientist in the chamber. Roland erases some math on the board. He writes a new problem. The turbine reaches speeds of over Mach 6 and inhales the scientist. Scully and Mulder are brought in. They speak with the two remaining scientists and the project leader. Then they go to speak with Roland. They don’t get any answers but Mulder takes a paper he was writing on. A handwriting expert can’t match Roland’s writing to what’s on the white board either. Roland is having another memory flash. At the lab, one of the scientists is working. Someone enters the code on the lab door. Roland cracks him over the head with his coffee cup. He puts him face first into liquid nitrogen. Scully explains what happened to Mulder. The two go back to see Roland. Mulder tries to help him pick out a shirt to calm him. Roland tells him Dr. Grable got him his job. He tells Mulder that he died and wasn’t supposed to come back. Scully requests a copy of Roland’s file. Mulder postulates that Dr. Grable is using Roland. Scully discovers that Dr. Grable and Roland share the same birthdate. Back at the house Roland lives at he’s talking to a girl and gets a scary vision.

At the college, Dr. Grable’s body is in a cryogenic capsule. The temperature on his unit fluctuates randomly. Based on the file Mulder thinks that Roland and Dr. Grable are twins. 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.

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.

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.
