Samantha tells her brother about the shape-shifting Alien Bounty Hunter and why he is out to kill all of them. With Scully taken prisoner by the Alien Bounty Hunter, Mulder arranges to swap his sister for her. Snipers are in the woods to take out the alien creature but it does not go well. The swap takes place on a bridge and while Scully is safe, Samantha and the bounty hunter fall into the waters below. Mulder's father gives him an envelope Samantha had left for him and as a result he goes to a women's health clinic in Maryland. There he gets a greater understanding of what is really going on. When Mulder disappears, it's Assistant Director Skinner who goes the extra mile to find out where he's gone. Written by
Did You Know?
(Mr. X) and Mitch Pileggi
(A.D. Skinner) improvised their famous elevator fight scene on the spot. During the filming of the sequence Williams actually broke a knuckle on his right hand when he accidentally punched Pileggi. When Rob Bowman
was dissatisfied with the first take of Skinner slamming X against the wall, Pileggi did it again with such force that the (fake) wall broke. See more
Watch the foot shadows under Mulder's door as X approaches. The first shadow is a right foot, and we can clearly see the shoe. The second foot shadow appears, and then the right hand shadow clearly rotates from left to right. When Scully answers the door, however, X is shown facing away from it. See more
How was the opera?
Wonderful. I've never slept better.
