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

(1974), which was one of this show's biggest influences, was approached for the roles of Senator Matheson (Mulder's government contact in #2.1 "Little Green Men", #3.1, "Nisei" and #6.9, "S.R. 819") and William Mulder (Fox's dad), but turned both roles down. Eventually, he was cast as Arthur Dales, a retired FBI Agent, for the episodes #5.15, "Travelers" and #6.13, "Agua Mala". See more
Young Fox Mulder is seen wearing a (Bernard) King t-shirt (right down to the correct jersey number, 30) from the New York Knicks basketball team during his sister Samantha's abduction. This occurred in 1973 (according to X Files mythology) but King would have been a freshman at Univ. of Tennessee then: he wasn't drafted by the NBA until 1977 and didn't play for the Knicks until 1982.
