Agent Scully appears before a committee chaired by section chief Blevins to account for her and Mulder's recent activities. A Canadian geodetic survey team has apparently found an alien frozen in the ice in the Yukon. A friend of Mulder's at the Smithsonian let's him know of the find and they set off to join the team and see it firsthand. They're not prepared for what they find. Scully meanwhile arrests Michael Kritschgau, a one-time Department of Defense employee, who has an amazing story to tell her - one that will rock the very foundations of Mulder's beliefs in the existence of extra-terrestrials. With her cancer worsening, Scully begins to reexamine her faith. Written by
Did You Know?
Mulder tells Scully to meet him at "The Smithsonian". She can't do this, because The Smithsonian Institute is actually a series of buildings - 19 museums, 9 research centers, and the National Zoo, to be exact - not just one museum or building. She could not know where because Mulder did not specify one museum or building, and they aren't all in the same place; there are several on the Mall, but not all of them are there. The screen also says that they are at "The Smithsonian". See more
