7X03 The Sixth Extinction
Agent Scully attempts to decipher the cryptic symbols on the UFO buried on the beach in Africa's Ivory Coast aided by local biology professor and former colleague of Merkmallen, Amina Ngebe.
Meanwhile in Washington Mulder's condition deteriorates, Assistant Director Skinner at Mulder's insistence goes to see former Pentagon researcher Michael Kritschgau and persuades him to visit Mulder in hospital. Kritschgau recognises Mulder's condition from a CIA study of ESP ability and explains that Mulder's brain is working harder than his body can sustain. Kritschgau tells Skinner to inject Mulder with Phenytoin, which slows down the electronic impulses in his brain allowing him to regain consciousness.
In Africa Scully is wary when Dr Barnes arrives and offers his help. Scully and Amina soon discovered that the symbols on the UFO describe human genetics and contain text from every major religion. Dr Barnes believing that the UFO is the ultimate power of life itself takes Scully and Amina hostage wanting to take full credit for the discovery himself. But Scully hits him with a chair and the two escape while he is unconscious.
Back in Washington Skinner injects Mulder with a greater dose of Phenytoin in order to get him out of the hospital, however Agent Fowley appears and shortly afterwards Mulder is overcome with convulsions. Scully returns to Washington and Skinner warns her that Mulder is dying, she visits him in hospital and pleads with him to hang on.
Scully about Mulder to AD Skinner: "He's not dying. He is more alive
than he has ever been. He's more alive than his body can withstand
and what's causing it may be extraterrestrial in origin."
