Agent Mulder accidentally stumbles upon a crime scene. When Mulder asks what the man he's looking for has done, the detective at the scene tells him that the man was putting child pornography on the Internet. This turns out not to be true and was just fabricated by the Syndicate to discredit the man. When Mulder confronts him about it, he says "What is it? Kiddie porn, again? Sexual battery of a patient? I've had my license taken away in three states."

-A terrorist bomb destroys a building.

-There are intense scenes with monsters. In a scene a man is slashed horribly by a creature leaving him very bloody with an open wound from his ear to his mouth, and another on his arm.

-A man shoots his driver, as well as killing himself by blowing up his car.
