Mulder and Scully head off to Alaska when the scientists working on the Arctic Ice Core project have seemingly gone crazy and killed each other. The project team had just beaten the record for the deepest core sample when they soon began to act oddly. Along with two scientists and a helicopter pilot, the agents arrive at the deserted post and soon find that an ancient micro-organism from one of the deep core samples is responsible. The helicopter pilot is the first affected and has to be restrained. One other of the group is also infected and the chief scientist in the group thinks it's Mulder.

When she dramatically removes the magazines from her Sig and Mulder's Glock automatic pistols and throws them out in the snow, she fails to remove the chambered rounds, meaning the guns are still loaded.
Scully also fails to unload the pistol she sealed in an FBI evidence bag, and the deranged Nancy later fires a round from it. See more

Who did that?
The military, centers for disease control... you oughta know. They're your people.
