Mulder is intent on saving Jeremiah Smith from the alien bounty hunter if for no other reason than he hopes Smith could save his mother who has suffered a severe stroke. Smith takes him to rural Alberta where he reveals another aspect of the conspiracy: fields where bees can pollinate that are tended by children, several of whom are identical to his sister when she was abducted at age 12. Scully meanwhile believes she has found a connection between smallpox vaccinations and the encrypted files she' located. Written by
