Scully is worried about Mulder when during an undercover sting operation, Mulder apparently lets a suspect, Jacob Steven Haley, escape. Haley is a right-wing anti-government militiaman who was observed in a park handing an envelope to someone who the FBI thinks was selling weapons. After Haley's escape, they find the other man dead with most of his flesh eaten away. Concerned that militiamen are in possession of biological weapons, FBI assistant Director Skinner takes Scully into his confidence and tells what is really going on. Written by
Did You Know?
The theater in Ohio has "Die Hard with a Vengeance" as the feature film. The musical score of this episode departs from the usual X-Files standard spooky (or silly, if it's a humor episode) fare and creates a very tense and foreboding edge-of-your-seat atmosphere using French horns. The tempo and style are remarkably similar to the score of the Die Hard movies, but especially the one referenced. See more
