Victims of alien abductions are being killed which confounds those responsible for the alien conspiracy. They also have a problem on their hands when Alex Krycek returns to the U.S. from Russia. Maria Covarrubius tells them he has a boy with him that may be particularly problematic. Scully and Mulder meanwhile are at odds. Mulder no longer believes in the alien conspiracy theory convinced that it was all a hoax to hide government experiments. Scully believes the alien conspiracy to be true and visits Cassandra Spender who, like herself, was abducted and has an implant in her neck. She is the mother of FBI Agent Jeffrey Spender who asks her to leave his mother alone.
