Scully and another agent, Jack Willis, are on a stakeout in a bank that they believe has been targeted by a pair of married robbers. In the ensuing gunfire, both the robber and Agent Willis are seriously wounded. At the hospital, Agent Willis is revived and the robber, Dupre, dies. As time goes on, Mulder becomes convinced that it is Dupre's consciousness that survived but in Willis' body. Scully is disbelieving even after Mulder demonstrates that the new Willis is now left-handed and has forgotten Scully's birthday, even though they were born the same day. When Jack takes Scully prisoner, it's up to Mulder to rescue her. Written by garykmcd

Body Transplant
22 September 2006 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

FBI agent Jack Willis is involved in a bank robbery shoot out with robber Warren Dupre.Both men are rushed to hospital as a result of their injuries.Dupre dies when Willis pulls through and lives.When Willis leaves hospital and returns to his FBI duties his behaviour seems a bit bizarre and totally out of character.Mulder comes to the conclusion Dupre has come back to life in Willis's body.Scully has doubts about this as she reveals she had a relationship with him before.

Its welcome to catch a glimpse into Scully's past revealing a lot more of the character plus Mulder appears to take this Revelation well not displaying any jealousy or animosity towards her.

I enjoyed this episode a lot and the twist at the end provides a good ending
