He admits to having killed 24 children, but refuses to take the blame for Amber's death. Mulder is approached by psychic, Harold Piller, he explains that he has helped police forces around the world and has found evidence that children's bodies have been taken from accident scenes by 'Walk-ins'. He believes that they save the children from terrible fates.
Scully worried about Harold's influence over Mulder in his vulnerable state returns to Washington to investigate further. Back in California, Harold has a vision of Mulder's mother that leads them to the April Air Force Base.
Meanwhile Scully discovers documents in Tena Mulder's house that link back to the Cigarette Smoking Man, when she returns to her apartment she finds him waiting there. He explains that he called off the search for Samantha because he knew she was dead. Mulder however uncovers evidence that Samantha was living with the Cigarette Smoking Man and his son, Jeffrey Spender at April Air Force Base.
When Scully finds a police report in 1979 of a runaway fitting Samantha's description taken to a hospital emergency room. They trace the nurse who treated her, who describes the girl disappearing in similar circumstances to Amber. Mulder has a vision of Samantha and realises she is in a better place, a realisation that at last enables him to feel free.
Mulder: " You know, we never stop to think... that the light is billions
of years old by the time we see it. From the beginning of time right
past us into the future. Nothing is ancient in the universe.
Maybe they are souls, Scully. Traveling through time as starlight looking
for homes. I wonder what my mother saw. And I wonder what she was
trying to tell me."
