When Dr Lloyd, a plastic surgeon at the Greenwood Memorial Hospital's Aesthetic Surgery Unit in Chicago goes crazy during a liposuction procedure and kills his patient he claims it is a case of demonic possession. Mulder and Scully are called in to investigate and interview Dr Lloyd, Scully believes that Dr Lloyd's sleeping pill addiction cause a psychotic episode. However when Mulder discovers evidence of a pentagram, an occult symbol of protection, on the floor of the operating room he realises that someone is trying to protect the patients. When a second surgeon kills a patient and the pentagram symbol is discovered once more, the investigation narrows in on Nurse Waite. Dr Franklin informs Mulder and Scully that Nurse Waite was working at the hospital ten years before when there was a spate of similar murders. Mulder and Scully go to interview Nurse Waite at her house, they discover that her house is full of symbols and objects from the occult, but Nurse Waite is not at home. Mulder and Scully are called to Dr Franklin's house when it appears that Nurse Waite has attacked him with a knife, but before she can explain to them she begins to regurgitate thousands of needles and dies. Leading to the conclusion that she is responsible for the deaths at the hospital. But Mulder believes that she was just trying to protect the patients. And his suspicions fall on Dr Franklin who was also present at the hospital ten years earlier when the first series of deaths took place.
