Mulder and Scully are called in by a local field office when the body of a long dead FBI agent is found by a local police detective in Aubrey, Missouri. The dead FBI agent died in 1942 but the detective who found the body, Inspector B.J. Morrow, can't quite explain why she was digging in the location where it was found. The local police also have a strange murder in their hands: a young woman who had the 'sister' carved on her chest. When Morrow's boss, Lt. Brian Tilman, first sees the crime photos he thinks the FBI has information on the most recent murder but the photos are nearly 60 years old. There is a connection of some sort between the dead and the living however. Written by garykmcd

Just after the teaser, Mulder and Scully are looking at the dental radiographs. Scully points out that the man is "congenitally" missing a lower left bicuspid. It is impossible to tell if the reason why the tooth is no longer present is congenital from the radiograph. Congenital is a condition existing at birth. See more »

A strange murder happens in Aubrey: A girl has bled because of the word "SISTER" written with a knife in the chest. Also, a Detective is pregnant, and founds a corpse of a dead FBI-agent, who disappeared 60 years ago.

This is the main setup of the chapter. In Aubrey, Mulder and Scully have to investigate the reason of the detective's finding. Apparently, there is no reason about the detective investigating and digging where the body was buried. This makes this chapter strange.

At the beginning, there is a lack of connection between the murderer and the agents investigating it. But some reflexive dialog between Mulder and Scully will give them the definitive clue to solve the case.

Great chapter due the originality of the plot, but maybe, the slow development of the plot itself and the (bit) disappointing ending will make you think that is not a good chapter. Think twice, review the dialogs, and you'll find a great chapter.
