As the investigation in to the cause of the crash of flight 549 continues, Mulder is taken into military custody while inspecting the second crash site at the bottom of Lake Sacandaga where he discovered the wreckage of a crashed UFO. Meanwhile in Washington, Assistant Director Skinner tells Scully that Louis Frish, a US airforce air traffic controller who was helping them with the their investigation, is to be charged with providing false evidence and suspicion of murder. The Airforce claim that Frish made an error in judgement which resulted in a military jet colliding with flight 549. Mulder released by the military returns to Washington with the theory that the airforce dispatched a jet that shot down the UFO which intercepted flight 549 and inadvertently caused the plane to spin out of control and crash. Records reveal that Sharon Graffia is not Max Fenig's sister but a fellow patient from his mental institution. Mulder and Scully search Max's mobile home for clues and discover a video tape of Max's claiming that he had actual physical evidence that the military is using technology from recovered UFOs. Mulder believes that Max had the physical evidence with him on the plane, that was the source of the radiation and the reason that he was abducted from the plane.
