With his main informant dead and the X Files shut down, Mulder finds himself reassigned to regular FBI duties. He is convinced he's being followed and his conversations listened in on. Mulder soon vanishes and heads to Puerto Rico where the giant radio communications dish at Arecibo was recently shut down. There he finds evidence and has a close encounter but Scully has tracked him down and they manage to escape just as the military arrives. Written by
