6X14 Agua Mala

As Hurricane Leroy wreaks havoc on Florida's Gulf Coast, Mulder and Scully are called to the town of Goodland by retired FBI Agent Arthur Dales to investigate local residents claims of an attack by a sea monster. Arthur Dales explains that he spoke to a neighbour Sara Shipley, a marine biologist, on the radio. She had witnessed her husband being choked by tentacles in their bathroom, Arthur Dales had heard nothing from her since that time. Arthur Dales persuades Mulder and Scully to investigate a possible X-file. They start at the Shipley residence but can find no trace of them, they do however encounter their cat, hiding in the washing machine. As they leave, local sheriff's Deputy Greer mistakes the two agents for looters until they are able to identify themselves as FBI Agents. On their way back to see Arthur Dales, to tell him they are giving up on the case, the weather worsens and they are forced to take refuge at the Breakers Condominium. Only to discover Deputy Greer and one of the residents have been attacked and injured by an unknown creature, that appears to be using the buildings plumbing system to travel. Putting the lives of the other residents in jeopardy, a point borne out when Mulder is himself attacked by the creature in the hallway. The situation is further complicated when a pregnant woman's waters break forcing Scully to choose between helping Mulder or delivering the baby, at the same time being held at gun point by a deranged resident.
