The X-files

4X16 Unrequited

When Lieutenant General MacDougal is killed in the back of his limousine, his driver is suspected, especially after he is linked to a Paramilitary group called the Right Hand. But the driver maintains his innocence and is cleared of blame when lab tests results reveal he had not fired a weapon. With a number of high ranking military officials due in for a re-dedication ceremony at the Vietnam War Memorial, Assistant Director Skinner assigns Mulder and Scully to investigate the Right Hand group and it's leader Denny Markham for complicity in the Generals murder. Markham gives the two agents a photograph of a Green Beret, Nathaniel Teager, captured by the Viet Cong in 1971, freed by Markham's group in 1995 who then disappeared after US Government commandos attempted to kidnap him. Mulder discovers that MacDougal along with another General Steffan signed Teager's death certificate. Concerned that Teager maybe targeting Steffan, Mulder arranges for two FBI agents to protect him. However Teager manages to slip by the agents and kills Steffan in his office in the Pentagon. Skinner is outraged especially when Teager's shadowy image is caught on security camera. Mulder believes that Teager has learned from his captures the ability to hide himself from a person's field of vision. When Mulder's contact Marita Covarrubias informs him that the government has sanctioned Teager to kill the Generals the race is on to stop a seemingly unstoppable assassin.

Noteworthy Quote

Mulder: "Are you saying our government wants these officers dead....why would they ask us to protect them."

Marita Covarrubias: "Because they know you can't."
