Doch nicht tot, sondern nur so getan habend, infiltriert Mulder (David Duchovny) das Pentagon, um ein Heilmittel für Scullys (Gillian Anderson) Krebs zu finden. Dort entdeckt er ein Gefäß unbekannten Inhalts, das er zu den Lone Gunmen (Dean Haglund, Tom Braidwood sowie Bruce Harwood) bringt, die den Inhalt jedoch nur als deionisiertes Wasser identifizieren. Scully kommt nach einem Zusammenbruch ins Krankenhaus, wo Mulder sie besuchen will, aber auf Skinner (Mitch Pileggi) trifft; dem ob seines Lebendigseins verdutzen Vorgesetzten teilt er später mit, ein FBI-Verräter habe Scullys Krebs ausgelöst. Der Cigarette Smoking Man (William B. Davis) will den First Elder (Don S. Williams) überzeugen, Mulder einen guten Grund zu bieten, sich ihnen anzuschließen. Er trifft Mulder im Krankenhaus und erzählt ihm, das Gefäß des Wassers enthalte einen Chip, der Scully heilen könne; Scully lässt sich den Chip schließlich einpflanzen. Später trifft sich der Cigarette Smoking Man abermals mit Mulder und bringt dessen Schwester Samantha (Megan Leitch) mit, die behauptet, der Cigarette Smoking Man sei ihr Vater. Mulder berichtet später einem FBI-Panel von der Verschwörung gegen ihn und Scully. Der Cigarette Smoking Man wird von einem Attentäter namens Quiet Willy (Willy Ross) erschossen. Scullys Krebs zieht sich schließlich zurück. Zwischendurch tritt mit Emily (Lauren Diewold) ein Kind auf, das aus einem Scully während ihrer Entführung entnommenen Ei hervorgegangen ist, stirbt aber bald. Marita Covarrubias (Laurie Holden) trifft bei Ermittlungen bezüglich des Schwarzen Öls in Kasachstan auf Alex Krycek (Nicholas Lea). Der bringt einen Infizierten namens Dimitri (Alex Shostak Jr.), der Augen, Nase und Mund zugenäht hat, damit das Öl nicht entkommt, gegen die Befehle seiner Vorgesetzten in die USA.  Mulder trifft nicht nur auf Außerirdischen-Entführungsopfer Cassandra Spender (Veronica Cartwright), sondern auch auf ihren Sohn Jeffrey (Chris Owens), FBI-Agent. Krycek bietet dem Syndikat Dimitri im Tausch gegen ihre Forschungen bezüglich eines Impfstoffes an. Marita kidnappt Dimitri jedoch und wird ihrerseits mit dem Schwarzen Öl infiziert, als Dimitri ein Auge öffnet. Ihr wird ein Test-Impfstoff verabreicht, da die Elders auf einen Impfstoff hoffen, wie ihn die Russen zu haben scheinen, um der außerirdischen Kolonisierung widerstehen zu können. Ein außerirdischer Rebell stürzt ab und wird gefangen genommen. Krycek bricht bei Mulder ein und berichtet, zwischen verschiedenen Außerirdischen-Fraktionen herrsche Krieg. Der Rebell wird von einem anderen Rebellen befreit. Der Impfstoff wirkt. Der Cigarette Smoking Man ist nicht tot, ist aber wohl der Vater von Jeffrey Spender. Schach-Wunderkind Gibson Praise (Jeff Gulka) entgeht einem Mordversuch. Krycek findet den Cigarette Smoking Man in seinem kanadischen Versteck. Spender leitet die Untersuchung des Mordversuchs an Gibson, Mulders alte Bekannte Diana Fowley (Mimi Rogers) ist auch beteiligt. Der Cigarette Smoking Man kehrt zum Syndikat zurück. Gibson ist wohl ein Gedankenleser. Der verhinderte Attentäter sagt Mulder, Gibson sei das Missing Link. Diana, die Gibson bewachen sollte, wird angeschossen, Gibson von Leuten des Cigarette Smoking Man entführt. Dieser sagt Spender, er sei sein Vater und zündet das X-Akten-Büro an. (CD)
