Having found Jeremiah Smith, Mulder must choose between saving his
mother's life or finding the answer to some of his questions about his
sister, all the while trying to stay ahead of the alien assassin.
Scully meanwhile turns to her science to analyze some data recovered
from Jeremiah's files. Part two of two.
A shallow grave holding a deformed baby bring Mulder and Scully
to a small town in Pennsylvania. There they are met with residents
who treat each other like family. But the murder case introduces them
to some of the townspeople who take that concept a little too far.
Scully's assistance as a medical investigator is requested by the
Center for Disease Control when a black man's corpse is found, but
completely lacking in pigmentation. But when Mulder joins the case,
he suspects that their suspected disease carrier may not be carrying
a disease at all, but rather the prime suspect in a murder case.
An abducted woman turns up after being lobotomized and the only
clue left behind seems to be a photograph which appears to Scully to
have been misdeveloped. However, Mulder does not believe the photo to
be an error, but rather a peek into the criminal's mind which he
attempts to interpret before the abductor lobotomizes his next victim.

The storming of a religious cult nearly results in failure until
Mulder inexplicably discovers a civil war bunker where the cultists
have hidden themselves. However, unable to turn up any evidence
against the cult, it is up to Mulder to come up with some even if it
means speaking with one of the cultist's past lives.
The plastic surgery unit of a hospital becomes the gruesome site of
a patient's murder by their doctor. Mulder and Scully come to
determine the credibility of his story that he was possessed when he
did it. Their investigation turns up a nurse who seems to be a
practitioner of magic who knows the price some will pay for beauty.
