With Mulder off on a week's mandatory leave, Scully is on her own and feeling put upon. While in Philadelphia she meets Edward Jerse who asks her out to dinner. Ed has recently gone through a nasty divorced. Despondent and more than a little drunk, he gets a tattoo. Soon after, he begins to hear voices and lashing out at work, loses his job and disposes of a neighbor who he thinks is responsible. After drinks, Scully gets a tattoo of her own but the next day two Philadelphia police detectives show up at Jerse's apartment investigating his neighbor's disappearance. Scully may have found a medical reason for Ed's hallucinations. Written by
