1X23 The Erlenmeyer Flask
Mulder receives a phone call from Deep Throat telling him to turn on Channel 8, there is a police chase in progress which ends when the fugitive is shot and plunges in to a lake. But photographic evidence from the scene shows that the car the fugitive was driving had been switched. Mulder and Scully trace the original car to a Dr Berube, but he is reluctant to co-operate. With nothing to go on Mulder is ready to give up, when Deep Throat contacts him again and tells him he has never been closer to the truth. Meanwhile Dr Berube is found dead in his lab, Mulder recovers a flask of liquid labeled 'Purity Control' which Scully takes to be analysed. The contents are identified as bacteria that is extraterrestrial in origin.
Mulder following another lead discovers a warehouse full of bodies suspending in green liquid, however when he later returns with Scully the warehouse is empty.
Deep Throat contacts Mulder and explains that Dr Berube was running a government funded project using alien DNA in gene therapy. Using terminally ill patients as guinea pigs. The fugitive on the TV, Dr Secare
was one of his patients. He also tells Mulder that a government black squad is working against them.
As witnesses begin to die and the evidence is systematically destroyed, Mulder and Scully have to push the official limits and risk everything, including the X-files in an attempt to expose the truth. And Mulder's contact Deep Throat pays the ultimate price.
