The X-files

2X10 Red Museum

Mulder and Scully are called in to investigate by a local sheriff after a number of Wisconsin teenagers are found walking in the woods in their underwear, drugged and with the phrase 'He is one' or 'She is one' written on their bodies. Sheriff Mazeroski believes a local religious cult called the Church of the Red Museum is responsible. They came to the area three years before and bought a ranch, being vegitarian they turned the cattle in to pets, which caused a lot of resentment with local cattle ranchers. But after going to see them Mulder informs Scully they are 'walkins', who believe in soul transference, that enlightened souls take over other peoples bodies. Mulder doubts their complicity, however he notices their presence causes a lot of tension in the local community. An old man shows Mulder and Scully cattle being injected with a genetically modified growth hormone, which he claims has made the local people very aggressive. The case takes a dramatic turn when the local doctor is killed in a light aircraft accident. His briefcase contains thousands of dollars, details of local families and a phial of liquid. Later identified as similar to the substance found in The Erlenmeyer Flask. It would appear that Dr Larson was injected local children with the contents of the phial. And that the attacks on the teenagers was an attempt by a local paedophile to draw attention to these experiments. But they have to move fast as the evidence begins to disappear and witnesses start to die.

Scully: "The man who died in that plane crash, was inoculating those kids with antibodies derived from what may have been an extraterrestrial source."

Mulder: "He's been injecting those kids with alien DNA!"
