The X-files

7X18 Hollywood A.D.

Mulder is called to Assistant Director Skinner's office to be briefed about the bombing of the crypt of the church of Cardinal O'Fallon. Another man is present during the briefing, AD Skinner's explains that he has arranged for the man, Wayne Fetterman, an old friend of his who is making a film about the F.B.I. to join the investigation. Mulder and Fetterman interview Cardinal O'Fallon and examine the crypt that was used to store religious relics. A ringing mobile phone leads to the discovery of a body amongst the rubble. The phone belongs to Micah Hoffman, a 1960's counter revolutionary. Scully joins Mulder and Fetterman at Hoffman's apartment, they discover bomb making equipment and evidence that Hoffman was forging religious texts, and could have been trying to pass these off as real to Cardinal O'Fallon. Mulder and Fetterman return to discuss the matter with him, however while in the crypt Fetterman witnesses a skeleton form from scattered bones and work on a clay bowl. Later Scully tries to rationalise what he saw, but he has everything he needs for his film and leaves them to continue the investigation. Scully relates to Mulder the story of the Lazarus bowl, a clay bowl made at the time Christ raised Lazarus from the dead, that recorded his words in the clay and has the power to raise the dead. Scully gives the bowl to resident techie Chuck Burks, who discovers an Aramaic voice, that appears to be one man commanding another to rise from the dead.
