Storyline

Mulder and Scully travel to Sioux City to investigate the disappearance of a teenager, Ruby Morris, whose mother Darlene claims was abducted by aliens. There's some reluctance on the part of the FBI to even open an X-File on the matter until Mulder finds that the Darlene was also supposedly abducted during a girl scout outing when she was a teenager. Ruby had something of a wild reputation and the local authorities believe she may have run off with a biker. Ruby's younger brother Kevin is seeing something on the television that he can translate into binary code, something that is of interest to the NSA. For Mulder, the case is far too reminiscent of his sister Samantha's abduction by aliens when he was 12 and she 8 years old. Written by garykmcd

A brother's quest
18 September 2006 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

This episode Conduit brings a part of Mulder's childhood to the fore.We learn his sister Samantha was abducted when he was young and he was unfortunate enough to witness the event.Also Mulder's determination to succeed in his field of work stems from this event.He clearly would go to any lengths to find out the truth about his sister's disapperance.Though Scully admires his intense determination and drive she feels sometimes Mulder's judgement is clouded sometimes.This is a reoccurring theme on the x-files and for that reason alone helped to sustain the interest of many viewers who watched the show.Conduit is a starting part of a long quest for the truth
