Scully discovers evidence that these men have been using the Smallpox eradication program to secretly cataloguing the human race. But why? Jeremiah Smith takes Mulder to a remote farming estate in Canada, where Mulder sees clones of his sister Samantha at the age she was abducted, Jeremiah Smith tells him that they are a colony of worker drones. But before he can reveal the colonization plans the alien bounty hunter arrives and Mulder watches on helpless as Jeremiah Smith is killed.
