In this episode, Scully is in mourning over the discovery of a dead Mulder. As she is trying to cope, Agent Doggett and A.D. Skinner dig up him to see if, just like Billy Miles, Mulder is alive due to an alien test. Alex tells Skinner that to get the vaccine he has is to terminate Scully's unborn child, which also belongs to Mulder. As Miles sheds his decaying skin Scully realizes that the same will happen to Mulder, unfortunately he won't be the same Mulder. Skinner decides the only way out is to kill Mulder and removes his breathing tube. Afer a tussle with Doggett, Scully sees that doing that stopped the virus from spreading. In the end Mulder awakens with Scully at his side. He is clearly himself because he jokes and pretends not to remember Scully. They laugh. He cannot rememeber the hospital drama he was the centre of but says to Scully, "I could see it in your face."
