The X-files

6X12 One Son

In Mulder's apartment Cassendra Spender implores Mulder and Scully to kill her, but Diana Fowley and men from the Centres for Disease Control burst in claiming they have been exposed to an unknown disease. At the decontamination centre in Fort Marlene, Cassandra is held separately, leading Scully to conclude they are continuing the experiments on her. Mulder however believes 'she is the one'. He encounters a dishevelled looking Marita Covarrubias, the Syndicate have been running test of the Black Oil vaccine on her. She confirms the work to develop an alien/human hybrid was done in co-operation with the aliens, but only in an attempt to buy time. When the aliens discover that they have succeeded with Cassandra, colonisation will begin. Scully with the help of the Lone Gunman discovers that Diana Fowley was collecting data about female abductees while she was in Europe. Mulder dismisses Scully's concerns and goes to see Diana, only to meet the Cigarette Smoking Man instead. He tells Mulder of the Project and the Syndicate members who assisted the aliens in return for them and their families survival when colonisation began, hence Samantha's abduction. But that Bill Mulder's idea was to develop a vaccine to the alien virus for when the time came. Agent Spender does not believe Krycek when he tells him the Syndicate intend to hand over his mother to the aliens. But it appears events have overcome the Syndicate members....The future is here and all bets are off. Part Two

Mulder about Cassandra: "She's the first, isn't she? She's the first successful alien/human hybrid.

Marita Covarrubias: "If she is and the aliens learn a hybrid exists, colonization of the planet will begin. With no stopping it.
