Mulder and Scully find themselves delving into the world of freaks and circus sideshows when Jerald Glazebrook, otherwise known as the Alligator Man, is killed in his swimming pool. Mulder determines that this attack is identical to 48 others that have taken place over 28 years across the US, the last five of which have taken place in Florida. They soon find themselves in a Florida community where circus performers reside. They learn about the Fiji Mermaid, a half-ape, half-fish creature that never existed. Mulder however can't help but wonder. The murders continue but suspects abound and even the local Sheriff turns out to have once been a sideshow performer. Someone's twin is responsible for what is happening. Written by
