6X01 The BeginningIn Pheonix, an employee of Roush Technologies, Sandy is found in his home with his
chest ripped open, by another employee who is then himself attacked by an alien. Meanwhile in Washington Mulder devotes his
time to recovering data from the fire damaged X-files case files. With the FBI investigating committee not giving much credence
to their report of the alien ship under the Antarctic ice, Mulder and Scully are re-assigned
to other departments within the FBI. Assistant Director Skinner informs Mulder that
the X-files have been turned over to Agents Spender and Foley. But he draws Mulder's attention to the incident in Pheonix, which Mulder and Scully follow up on and leads to the
discovery of an alien claw in Sandy's house. When an engineer at the Rolling Hills Nuclear plant 60 miles from Pheonix, is
killed by the alien. Mulder and Scully travel there but are denied access to the scene by Agent Spender and later reprimanded
by the investigating committee who bar them from having anything more to do with the X-files. They also assign a new supervisor,
Assistant Director Kersh to oversee Mulder and Scully. Meanwhile the Cigarette Smoking Man attempts to use Gibson Praise to capture the alien but Gibson and the alien
manage to escape. Scully tells Mulder that tests on the DNA from the alien claw they recovered matches not only the alien
virus but also Gibson's DNA. And that the same DNA is present in all of us, only it is dormant in everyone else. Part Two
Scully: "No. It's a part of his DNA. In fact, it's a part of all of our DNA. It's called a genetic remnant.
It's inactive junk DNA. Except in Gibson it's turned on."
Mulder: "So if that were true, that would mean that Gibson is in some part extraterrestrial."
Scully: "It would mean that all of us are."
6X02 DriveWhen husband and wife, Patrick and Vicky Crump are stopped for speeding by the state police
in Nevada. With Vicky writhing in agony, Patrick's pleas to let them carry on are ignored and moments later Vicky's head explodes.
Mulder and Scully are carrying out routine fertilizer order checks in Idaho as a punishment, when Mulder sees the report of
Vicky's unexplained death on the TV. After a quick phone call to the officer in charge, Mulder manages to persuade Scully
to make a detour and the two agents are soon involved in the case. Scully examines Vicky's body and discovers that her ear
exploded. After a second victim is found in a similar condition, she orders a quarantine to combat a possible communicable
disease. When Patrick Crump falls ill and is rushed to hospital, Mulder trails the ambulance but is taken hostage by Patrick
and forced to drive across country. As Mulder begins to understand Patrick's situation, he leaves a note for Scully to make
sure the car is not stopped. Meanwhile Scully receives a phone call from Assistant Director Kersh, who wants to know what she and Mulder are doing in Nevada. After further investigation and the discovery of more
dead people and animals at the Crump's residence, Scully discovers a link to a secret Military low frequency radio experiment
in the area. Patrick believes he and his wife are the victims of a secret government experiment, but Mulder and Scully are
more concern with trying to saving his life.
Assistant Director Kersh to Scully: "...you no longer investigate X-Files. You are done and the sooner
you and Mulder come to recognize that, the better for both of you."
6X03 TriangleSatellite photographs of the Sargasso Sea identifying the British luxury liner 'Queen Anne'
that disappeared in the 1930's, prompts Mulder to investigate in the Bermuda Triangle, but his boat capsizes and he is knocked
unconscious. The Lone Gunman approach Scully when they realize Mulder's predicament.
Scully frantically searches for help from anyone in the FBI to save her partner's life, she calls on Assistant Director Kersh and even Agent Spender before Assistant Director Skinner gives her the
information she needs. When Mulder regains consciousness he finds he has been rescued by a passing boat...the 'Queen Anne',
Mulder thinks that the boat is caught in some sort of time warp and has been dragged in to the present. But slowly it dawns
on him that the year is 1939 and the boat's passengers resemble people from his life, including a woman who looks exactly
like Scully. And two Nazi officer's who bear a striking resemblance to Agent Spender and the Cigarette
Smoking Man, who have stormed the ship looking for a weapon, Thor's Hammer. But Mulder lets it slip that
Thor's Hammer is a scientist who will build a nuclear bomb. The Nazi's attempt to take the ship to Germany, Mulder realizing
the affects this will have on the future enlists the help of the 1939 Scully look a like to turn the ship back. Mulder jumps
overboard in to the sea where he is picked up by Scully and the Lone Gunman in the present, but they discount his experience
as a dream.
British Crewman to Mulder: "What's wrong with you?! Don't you know there are spies everywhere?! Trust no
6X04 DreamlandAfter a tip off from an inside source in Area 51, Mulder and Scully travel to Nevada to
meet an informant who claims to have irrefutable proof that the government is experimenting with UFO technology. But they
are intercepted by Area 51 employees who block the road and tell them that there are no such things as UFOs. During the confrontation
a UFO passes overhead that causes Mulder and one of the Area 51 officials, Morris Fletcher to switch bodies. As Scully leaves
with "Mulder", now Morris Fletcher. Mulder trapped in Morris' body tries to fit in with the other Area 51 employees to avoid
arousing suspicion. As Morris settles in to Mulder's single man FBI agent lifestyle, Mulder uses his new identity's position
to gain access to the secretive Area 51. In which capacity he investigates the crash of the UFO from the previous evening,
the pilot it seems has switched bodies with a elderly Hopi Indian woman. Pointing to a link between the affects of a problem
with the craft's anti-gravity drive and his own current condition, but how can he reverse the effects and return to normal.
Mulder attempts to explain his situation to Scully who is understandably skeptical. In an effort to prove himself to Scully,
he steals the black box from the crashed UFO to show her, but Morris gets wind of the plan and informs Assistant
Director Kersh who orders Scully to set a trap for Mulder. Area 51 police arrest Mulder and drag him away,
as he shouts to Scully that Morris is not him. Part One
Scully: "What is up with you?....This is an X-File, your life's work, your crusade!"
Morris (as Mulder): "As I understand it, we're off the X-Files."
6X05 Dreamland IIMorris Fletcher recants Mulder's life from his sister's disappearance,
to his time at Oxford, his FBI training and his first assignment at Behavioural Science. And then he went mad, turned away
from his brilliant career and spent his time shaking his fist at the sky and muttering about conspiracies to anyone who will
listen. But Morris is going to change all that. Mulder is not adapting to his new identity quite as easily. He is free at
least, after the Black Box he attempted to show to Scully turns out to be a fake, his fellow Area 51 colleagues assume he
was trying to scam the FBI in an attempt to discover the identity of the informant in their midst. Scully is sanctioned by
Assistant Director Kersh and put on suspension for two weeks, Morris invites her to
dinner under the pretence of easing her pain. When she arrives, Morris has tidied up and uncovered a bedroom in Mulder's apartment.
As he attempts to seduce her, prompted by his strange behaviour she handcuffs him to the bed and accuses him of being Morris
not Mulder. Morris admits that it is true, but claims not to know how to reverse the switch. Scully takes Morris to see the
Lone Gunman, but they are unable to provide any suggestions. The situation looks hopeless
until one of the Area 51 employees uncovers evidence that suggests that the switch will reverse itself, if they are in the
right place at the right time. Acting on this Scully takes Morris to meet Mulder where the switch first occurred in an attempt
to restore normality. Part Two
General Wegman: "There comes a time when you... look back instead of forward... See the sum of your life.
My entire career has been spent hiding the truth from the American people destroying, in a way, that which was most precious
6X06 Terms of EndearmentWhen a married woman, Laura Weinsider's ultrasound reveals abnormalities in
her unborn child, she dreams that night of a demon stealing her baby, only to awake and find her baby is gone. The town's
sheriff, who happens to be Laura's brother takes the case to agent Spender, now investigating
the X-files, who ignores it and shreds the file. It is agent Mulder who salvages the file and travels to the small town of
Hollins in Virginia to investigate what he sees as a classic case of demon baby harvesting. Scully asked by Mulder to take
a look at Laura's medical records discovers mandrake, often used to self induce abortion, in Laura system. But Mulder's prime
suspect is Laura's husband Wayne, whom he follows around town, uncovering Wayne's dual life. He is married to a second woman,
Betsy who lives across town and is also pregnant. Mulder fears for her safety, but before Mulder and Scully can help her,
Betsy too dreams of a demon coming to take her baby. On their way to Betsy's house Mulder and Scully are forced to stop by
a car swerving in front of them. The car is driven by Betsy, who is bleeding and in distress, she tells them that Wayne took
her baby. At Betsy's house, they find Wayne digging in the backyard, they assume he is burying Betsy's baby. But before he
can explain the sheriff arrives and shoots Wayne. Mulder concludes Wayne was a demon who longed for a normal life, a family,
but all his children turned out to be demons.
Mulder: "I, uh... before I tell you, I'm going to ask you to keep an open mind."
Scully: "This isn't an X-File?"
6X07 Rain KingMulder persuades Scully to join him in an investigation in Kroner, Kansas after being
asked by the local Mayor, who believes that the drought they have been suffering from for the past nine months is caused by
Daryl Moots. Following an argument with his fiancee Shelia, Daryl lost his leg in a car accident six months earlier, ever
since then he has been able to make it rain at will. A valuable gift in a drought plagued area. Scully can not believe that
Mulder wants to investigate a man who can control the weather. They go to Rain King Inc's office and meet Daryl's secretary,
she can not understand why Mulder and Scully are investigating Daryl who is just trying to help people. The two agents meet
a local TV weather man, Holman Hardt who explains that Kroner is a meteorologist's dream because of all the unusual weather
over the years. Holman doubts Daryl has caused the drought, but does believe that Daryl can make it rain. Mulder and Scully
go to a local farm where Daryl is due to make it rain. When Daryl arrives he claims not to know how he does it, but after
a little dancing around, there is a clap of thunder and it starts to pour with rain. That night Mulder is nearly killed by
a cow picked up by the wind and dropped in to his hotel room. Next morning Shelia claims to be responsible for the weather.
Mulder doubts that she is the one controlling the weather but does believe that she is the key to the case as suspicions focus
in on Holman and his unrequited love for Shelia.
Scully: "Look at the desperation on these people's faces, Mulder. They're ready to believe anything."
6X08 How The Ghosts Stole ChristmasIt is Christmas Eve and Mulder persuades Scully to forsake the cheery
Christmas tradition to join him a stake out in Maryland. Upon meeting Mulder however, Scully is dismayed to discovers the
object of the stake out is a reputed haunted house. Mulder informs her that in 1917 two young lovers, Maurice and Lyda weary
of the war and the flu epidemic, wanting to be together forever took their own lives in a double suicide on Christmas Eve.
Since then there have been three similar double suicides in the house on Christmas Eve, Mulder believes that the couple's
ghosts are responsible. Scully is reluctant to squander her Christmas Eve on a ludicrous ghost hunt but follows Mulder in
to the house when her car keys disappear, only to have the door lock behind her, trapping them both inside. Events take a
strange turn when they uncover two decomposing bodies dressed exactly like them under the floorboards in the library. When
they attempt to leave the library they find themselves back in the library, they both try a different door and find themselves
separated from each other. Mulder encounters Maurice who accuses him of being a lonely man who brought Scully to the house
to kill her so that they could be together forever. Scully is startled by Lyda, who warns her that Mulder has gone mad and
is going to kill her as part of a murder suicide. The ghosts plan seem to have worked when Mulder and Scully shoot each other
and collapse bleeding on the hallway floor.
Scully: "Mulder, none of that really happened out there tonight, that was all in our heads, right?"
Mulder: "I-it must have been."
6X09 TithonusScully is called to Assistant Director Kersh's
office, she is assigned to partner agent Ritter from the New York City office in the case of a crime scene photographer, Alfred
Fellig who is suspected of being involved in the murders that he photographs. After a photograph he took included a clock
that showed it was taken before the crime was reported to the police. Mulder stuck carrying out routine FBI background checks,
thinks that the case is an X-file but Scully denies it. Meanwhile Fellig photographing another crime scene is stabbed in the
back by the murderer, with his fingerprints on the knife left at the scene he is taken in for questioning. Fellig admits to
being present at the scene and being wounded, but when Scully checks his back, the wounds have all but healed. Later Scully
confronts Fellig who takes her for a drive, stopping he points out a prostitute and tells Scully she is about to die. As they
watch a man begins hassling her, Scully rushes to arrest him. But turning to leave the prostitute steps in to the path of
a passing truck and is killed. Mulder carrying out a background check on Fellig, discovers his fingerprints on records dating
back 149 years. Scully again confronts Fellig, who explains that he sees people who are about to die in black and white. That
he himself missed death when he was sick with Yellow Fever and now photographs people dying to try and catch Death's attention.
And he may have another chance as he sees Scully in black and white.
Mulder (On Phone): "Hey, Scully, uh, how's that X-File coming? And before you tell me that it's not an
Scully (On Phone): "It is."
6X10 S.R. 819Assistant Director Skinner collapses in the gym and is taken to hospital,
while recovering he receives a phone call telling him he has only twenty-four hours to live. Mulder finds Skinner on the couch
in his office, having difficulty seeing and calls in Scully for her medical expertise, as he toys with the idea that Skinner
may have been poisoned. They question Skinner about the events of the day, he recalls bumping in to a man in the hallway,
using the FBI close circuit TV tape they identify the man as Kenneth Orgel, an adviser to the US Senate. Scully goes to see
Skinner's doctor and discovers the tests on Skinner's blood reveal bits of carbon multiplying and building structure in his
system. The Orgel trail leads Mulder to his contact on Capitol Hill Senator Matheson,
who has supported him in the past, but is not forth coming about the current case. As Skinner takes a turn for the worst and
is rushed to hospital, Mulder discovers that he was doing a security review of new technology export laws that could be linked
to his current condition. Scully thinks she has found a way to remove the carbon from Skinner's blood, when she tells him,
Skinner tells her he is sorry for not being more helpful to them with the X-files, for not taking sides. Mulder arrives with
information about senate resolution 819 and the export of nanotechnology, that could be the cause of Skinner's illness but
it appears Skinner's only hope is a mysterious long haired man, whose intentions maybe far more sinister.
Assistant Director Skinner: "Oh. This is about you!"
Mulder: "Or about the X-Files."
Assistant Director Skinner: "You are so paranoid, Mulder. You're not even on the X-Files anymore."
6X11 Two Fathers
In a familiar looking train car, doctors in chemical suits operate, they make an incision in an unseen patient's
stomach, green fluid seeps out but the wound heals itself. As another doctor arrives he is informed that after 25 years the
work is complete. Moments later a faceless man enters the train car and sets fire to the doctors. The patient in the train
car is Cassandra Spender missing for over a year. Assistant Director
Skinner takes agent Spender to see his mother in hospital but
she refuses to talk to anyone except Mulder. Spender reluctantly agrees but Mulder believes it is an attempt to entrap him.
Mulder and Scully recognise the train car setup and burned bodies from previous X-files cases and arrange to meet Cassandra secretly. She tells them that the doctors in the train car
worked with the aliens colonists who are here to wipe the human race off the planet. They move through the Universe, infecting
all other life forms with the Black Oil known as "purity", which is their life force.
She also tells Mulder that the woman he met, that the Cigarette
Smoking Man claimed was his sister was a fake, that Samantha is with the aliens. Mulder and Scully use
the X-files basement office to uncover the Cigarette Smoking Man's real identity, his links with Mulder's father Bill and a secret 25 year old project. But their unauthorised access of the X-files office is discovered
and they are suspended from the FBI. Meanwhile agent Spender joins Krycek on an errand
for the Cigarette Smoking Man. Part One
Cigarette Smoking Man: "If Mulder hadn't known of his father's history with me. He was fueled now with
names and dates and ... certainties. I couldn't stop him any longer -- stop him from learning our sins, his father's and my
own. The truth was out there fatally exposed. I had one last hope, one chance to preserve my legacy.
6X12 One SonIn Mulder's apartment Cassendra Spender implores
Mulder and Scully to kill her, but Diana Fowley and men from the Centres for Disease
Control burst in claiming they have been exposed to an unknown disease. At the decontamination centre in Fort Marlene, Cassandra
is held separately, leading Scully to conclude they are continuing the experiments on her. Mulder however believes 'she is
the one'. He encounters a dishevelled looking Marita Covarrubias, the Syndicate have
been running test of the Black Oil vaccine on her. She confirms the work to develop
an alien/human hybrid was done in co-operation with the aliens, but only in an attempt to buy time. When the aliens discover
that they have succeeded with Cassandra, colonisation will begin. Scully with the help of the Lone Gunman discovers that Diana Fowley was collecting data about female abductees while she was in Europe. Mulder dismisses Scully's
concerns and goes to see Diana, only to meet the Cigarette Smoking Man instead. He
tells Mulder of the Project and the Syndicate members who assisted the aliens in return for them and their families survival
when colonisation began, hence Samantha's abduction. But that Bill
Mulder's idea was to develop a vaccine to the alien virus for when the time came. Agent Spender does not believe Krycek when he tells him the Syndicate intend to hand over
his mother to the aliens. But it appears events have overcome the Syndicate members....The future is here and all bets are
off. Part Two
Mulder about Cassandra: "She's the first, isn't she? She's the first successful alien/human hybrid.
Marita Covarrubias: "If she is and the aliens learn a hybrid exists, colonization of the planet will begin.
With no stopping it.
6X13 ArcadiaAfter a number of couples from the 'The Falls of Arcadia' community mysteriously disappear.
Mulder and Scully go undercover posing as Rob and Laura Petrie, a married couple. They move in to the house formally occupied
by David and Nancy Kline, one of the missing couples. And soon discover that the community has many rules, they have to be
moved in by six that evening and Mulder's basketball hoop is not allowed on the driveway. Many of their neighbours turn up
to help them meet the six o'clock deadline. Next morning, Mulder goes to see the president of the homeowners association,
Mr Gogolak about his basketball hoop, only to be told it is not allowed. Mulder discovers that Mr Gogolak is an importer who
often travels to Tibet. Mulder puts a pink flamingo on the lawn to provoke a reaction, within minutes it has been removed.
He kicks the mailbox so it leans to one side and keeps an eye on it all day. But when he has to go to the bathroom, the mailbox
is straightened and a note left inside warning, 'Be like the others before it gets dark'. That evening Mulder puts his basketball
hoop outside but one of the neighbours rushes out and tries to stop him, as they talk a creature attacks the neighbour but
Mulder manages to chase it off. It appears the creature is enforcing the community rules which leads Mulder to believe that
during his business trips to Tibet Mr Gogolak has developed the ability to create a Tulpa, a Tibetian thought-form.
Scully: "What do you mean?"
Mulder: "I got a look at that thing that's been scaring everybody and I take it back. This is an X-File."
6X14 Agua MalaAs Hurricane Leroy wreaks havoc on Florida's Gulf Coast, Mulder and Scully are called
to the town of Goodland by retired FBI Agent Arthur Dales to investigate local residents claims of an attack by a sea monster. Arthur Dales explains that he spoke to a neighbour
Sara Shipley, a marine biologist, on the radio. She had witnessed her husband being choked by tentacles in their bathroom,
Arthur Dales had heard nothing from her since that time. Arthur Dales persuades Mulder and Scully to investigate a possible
X-file. They start at the Shipley residence but can find no trace of them, they do however encounter their cat, hiding in
the washing machine. As they leave, local sheriff's Deputy Greer mistakes the two agents for looters until they are able to
identify themselves as FBI Agents. On their way back to see Arthur Dales, to tell him they are giving up on the case, the
weather worsens and they are forced to take refuge at the Breakers Condominium. Only to discover Deputy Greer and one of the
residents have been attacked and injured by an unknown creature, that appears to be using the buildings plumbing system to
travel. Putting the lives of the other residents in jeopardy, a point borne out when Mulder is himself attacked by the creature
in the hallway. The situation is further complicated when a pregnant woman's waters break forcing Scully to choose between
helping Mulder or delivering the baby, at the same time being held at gun point by a deranged resident.
Mulder: "If the sea is where life began.. where our ancestors first walked ashore..
then who's to say what new life may be developing in it's uncharted depths.
6X15 MondayMonday morning and Mulder awakes to find his water bed has leaked, shorting out his alarm
clock making him late. Water has seeped through the floor to the apartment below and the resident calls to complain. On arrival
at the X-files basement office in the FBI building Scully informs him he is late for a meeting with Assistant
Director Skinner, but Mulder has to make a bank deposit to cover the cheque he wrote to his landlord for
the damages. Mulder goes to the Cradock Marine Bank down the street from the FBI offices. In a car outside a woman, Pam and
a man, Bernard sit talking. Bernard tells Pam he has to run an errand but when he gets inside the bank he starts a robbery.
Moments later Scully enters the bank looking for Mulder and draws her gun, in all the commotion Mulder is shot. As Scully
tries to help Mulder, who lies bleeding, riot police alerted by the silent alarm storm the bank. Bernard knowing he is trapped
detonates the explosives strapped to his chest destroying the bank....Monday morning and Mulder awakes to find his water bed
has leaked, shorting out his alarm clock making him late.....and so it goes on, time appears to be repeating itself in a loop,
forcing Mulder and Scully to continually relive the experience with small variations but always the same result, the bank
is blown up. Only the woman Pam appears conscious of the time loop, of the events repeating themselves and tries in vain to
alert the two agents to their shared predicament.
Mulder: "Scully, did you ever have one of those days you wish you could rewind and start all over again
from the beginning?"
Scully: "Yes, frequently. But I mean, who's to say that if you did rewind it and start over again that
it wouldn't end up exactly the same way?"
6X16 AlphaWhen two crew members aboard the freighter T'ien Kou en route from Hong Kong are attacked
by an animal and found dead inside a shipping crate, the case is brought to the attention of Agent Mulder by an online friend.
Mulder shows Scully the crime scene photographs, which indicate that the men died of dog bites wounds but does not explain
how their bodies were found inside a locked shipping crate. They visit the crime scene and talk with agent Chan of the US
Fish and Wildlife Department about the case. He tells them that the shipping crate is the property of a cryptozoologist, Dr
Detweiler and introduces them to him. Detweiler thinks Mulder and Scully are there to investigate the missing animal, which
he claims is a Wanshang Dhole, a rare breed of Asian dog thought to be extinct for 150 years. When a second victim of a dog
attack is found dead in his locked house, Mulder puts forward the theory that the dog is no ordinary dog, but one with human
intelligence. The two agents go to see Karin Berquist, a canine behavioural expert, and Scully soon discovers the person who
brought the case to Mulder's attention in the first place via their online acquaintance. But Karin is of little help to them
only letting them know that the Wanshang Dhole is a legendary trickster dog. Agent Scully however thinks that Karin is the
trickster, using the case to finally meet Mulder. As it turns out Mulder's theory about a dog with human intelligence is not
far from the truth.
Mulder: "Animals that aren't supposed to exist like Sasquatch and the Ogopogo and the Abominable Snowman
Scully: (interrupting) "Don't mind him. He'll go on forever."
6X17 TreverAt a prison farm in Mississippi, inmate Pinker Rawls is put in to solitary confinement following
an assault on a fellow prisoner. Rawls is held in the shack in the middle of the work yard. But while the other inmates prepare
for an approaching storm, a passing tornado rips up the shack and deposits it 3 miles away, Rawls is presumed dead. Shortly
afterwards the Captain of the prison is found cut in two in his locked office. Mulder and Scully are brought in to work the
case, Scully performs an autopsy on the Captain and speculates about spontaneous human combustion as the causing factor. But
when Mulder finds the wall in the Captain's office is so brittle he can knock holes in it, he is convinced the Captain was
murdered. That evening a security guard finds Rawls in the Val-U-Mart store stealing clothes and arrests him, handcuffing
him while he radios in. But Rawls manages to escape the handcuffs and steals the guard's car. When Mulder examines the handcuffs,
he discovers that they too are very brittle, so brittle he can break them in two with his hands. Further investigation reveals
that Rawls carried out a robbery eight years earlier and the ninety thousand dollars was never recovered, it appears he is
trying to find his old girlfriend June, to get what he is due. Mulder theories that Rawls is able to pass through objects
by some how changing their composition, a possible side affect of his encounter with the tornado. But how can they stop a
man with such a power.
Mulder: "Dear Diary: Today my heart leapt when Agent Scully suggested spontaneous human combustion. "
Scully: "Mulder, there are one or two somewhat well-documented cases."
Scully: (In response to Mulder's look) "Mulder shut up!"
6X18 MilagroMulder's new neighbour is Philip Padgett, a writer struggling with his new story. Padgett
notices Scully on her way to Mulder's apartment and is attracted to her. He listens in on Mulder and Scully's conversation
through the air vent in his apartment. Scully tells Mulder of the discovery of a murder victim who's heart was removed without
an incision being made. Padgett is inspired by what he over hears and begins to write about it. Mulder is called to another
crime scene after a young man Kevin is found dead with his heart extracted from his unmarked chest. Meanwhile Scully finds
a 'Milagro', a Spanish good luck charm pushed under Mulder's door and believes it is from the killer. Later Padgett approached
Scully in a church, explaining the story of the sacred heart before confessing to Scully that he is attracted to her. Scully
tells Mulder about Padgett, prompting Mulder to steal mail from Padgett's mailbox. Although this reveals nothing, Mulder finds
evidence of a link to the dead man Kevin via the personal ads Padgett placed. Scully works out that the Milagro belongs to
Padgett and returns it to him, accepting an invitation for a coffee. But Mulder bursts in to the apartment, discovers the
chapters Padgett wrote are all actual crimes and arrests him. Mulder accuses Padgett of being the killer, tracking his victims
through the personal ads. Padgett denies any involvement, claiming he just used his imagination to write about it. Only it
appears what he writes about actually happens in reality.
Mulder: "No one can predict human behavior. No one can tell you what another person's going to do."
Scully: "Well, isn't that what you do, Mulder, as a behavioral profiler? You imagine the killer's mind
so well that you know what they're going to do next."
6X19 Three of a KindThe Lone Gunman travel to Las Vegas where
Def-Con '99, a convention of black ops technology is being held. Unable to gain access to the convention itself, Byers takes
part in a private poker game posing as a defence contractor, but he is tricked by another player using fake jargon and kicked
out of the game. On his way back to the hotel room Byers thinks he catches sight of Suzanne Modeski, who the Lone Gunman first met at a convention in Baltimore back in 1989 and whom Byers has secretly longed to meet
again. Scully make the journey to Las Vegas following a phone call from Mulder telling her that the Lone Gunman have found
something, only the phone call was from the Lone Gunman using a computer to fake Mulder's voice. Byers sees Suzanne in a hotel
room kissing the man from the poker game. The Lone Gunman hack in to the hotel computer and discover he is Grant Ellis, an
employee of the Advanced Weapons Research Centre, the same place that Suzanne worked 10 years before. The Lone Gunman begin
surveillance of Suzanne's room, but discover that she is already under surveillance. Byers confronts Suzanne and accuses her
of being brainwashed into working for the government once more. Suzanne denies this and later explains that Grant Ellis is
helping her to expose a government program at the convention, a program using a drug she developed called 'AE', which affects
the victims higher brain function, making them more open to suggestion.
Byers: "Mulder's too high profile. He's virtually a household name to the black ops who kidnapped Susanne
6X20 The UnnaturalIt is Saturday afternoon and Mulder is in the X-files basement office leafing through
New Mexico newspaper obituaries from the 1940's looking for anomalies, much to Scully's dismay on such a beautiful afternoon.
But Mulder stumbles across a newspaper picture of agent Arthur Dales with a Negro
baseball player and the alien bounty hunter. Ripping the page from the book, Mulder
leaves the office and goes to Dales' apartment, only to discover that Dales brother, also named Arthur has taken over the
apartment. But when he shows the photo to Dales, it turns out that the photo is of him not his brother. In June 1947 Dales
was a police office in Roswell, assigned to protect a Negro baseball star Josh Exley from member of the Klu Klux Klan, bent
on keeping baseball white. Exley played for a Negro team called the Roswell Greys and had hit 60 home runs in the season matching
Babe Ruth's record, and so was being scouted for the major leagues. Only Exley does not want to play for the major leagues,
he is quite content to stay were he is and play baseball for the Roswell Greys. Only Dales claims this was because Exley was
actually a grey alien who had fallen in love with the game of baseball and that was the reason he did not want to play in
the major leagues. As the newspapers and reporters would dig in to his background and reveal the truth. A fear shared by Exley's
fellow aliens who send the alien bounty hunter to deal with the problem in his own unique fashion.
Mulder: "You're also implying that this baseball-playing alien has something to do with the famous Roswell
UFO crash of July '47, aren't you?"
Arthur Dales: "You're just dying to connect the dots aren't you, son?"
6X21 Field TripAfter a day of hiking, a woman Angela complains that her husband Wallace left her behind
and walked on ahead. Later in the shower she has a vision of being covered in yellow goo. That night as they embrace in bed,
the scene changes to show their skeletons locked together in a field. Mulder and Scully are called in to investigate, Scully
speculates that the couple were killed and their bodies boiled to remove all the organs and tissue in some sort of ritualistic
killing. But Mulder notes that the couple's remains were found on Brown Mountain, North Carolina. Where witnesses have report
strange lights around the mountain for hundreds of years. On examination Scully discovers a yellow goo on Wallace and Angela's
bones. Meanwhile as Mulder combs the field where the couple were found looking for evidence, he encounters Wallace hiding
in a cave. Wallace claims he was abducted by aliens, a claim backed up when a bright light appears and Angela is returned,
recanting the same abduction story. Only Mulder can not figure out the skeletons. The bright light returns and Mulder walks
in to it. Mulder's skeleton is later found in the field, but Scully senses something is not right, especially when the Lone Gunman and Assistant Director Skinner both agree with
her ritualistic killing theory with out question. Mulder returns with actual proof of alien involvement. However Scully's
investigation seems to indicate that the yellow goo is a digestive secretion from a plant and holds the key to the case.
Scully: "Mulder, can't you just for once, just... for the novelty of it, come up with the simplest explanation,
the most logical one, instead of automatically jumping to UFOs or Bigfoot or...?"
Mulder: "Scully, in six years, how... how often have I been wrong? No, seriously. I mean, everytime I bring
you a new case we go through this perfunctory dance. You tell me I'm not being scientifically rigorous and that I'm off my
nut, and then in the end who turns out to be right like 98.9% of the time? I just think I've... earned the benefit of the
6X22 BiogenesisWhen a scientist Solomon Merkmallen who believes in Panspermia, the theory that life
on Earth originated from Mars, finds an artifact on a beach in the Ivory Coast that could be irrefutable proof. He travels
to Washington to show it to Dr Sandoz, who has discovered similar tablets. Mulder and Scully are called in to investigate
when Merkmallen is killed. Mulder is shown a rubbing of the tablet Merkmallen found and experiences voices in his head while
in Assistant Director Skinner's office. The two agents visit Dr Sandoz's lab and meet
Dr Barnes, who has spent his career debunking fakes. Mulder wonders if it would not be in Dr Barnes best interest to hide
any conclusive proof. They visit Dr Sandoz's residence and find Merkmallen's body and a photograph of Dr Sandoz with the Navajo
code talker Albert Holsteen. Tests reveal Merkmallen's body has been exposed to Cosmic
Galactic Radiation, a type of radiation from outside of our Solar System. Mulder's spells of hearing voices in his head increase
in frequency until he is incapacitated and has to be rescued by Diana
Fowley. Meanwhile Scully goes to see Albert Holsteen in New Mexico only to
discover he has cancer. Scully encounters Dr Sandoz who claims that the artifact has code from the human genome on it. Shortly
afterwards Dr Sandoz is killed by Krycek. Scully travels to the Ivory Coast to the
beach where Merkmallen discovered the tablet. And finds that the tablet is part of a larger object, a UFO buried in the sand.
Scully to Skinner: "On Agent Mulder's urging I ran tissue samples through what's called a charged particle
directional spectrometer. There were traces of a kind of radiation called C.G.R."
Mulder: "Cosmic Galactic Radiation. It's a kind of radiation that's found only outside our solar system.
