Three months after Mulder's funeral, Doggett is called in to Deputy Director Kersh's
office and informed that he is to be transferred off the X-files. Doggett is reluctant as many questions have been left unanswered about Mulder's disappearance.
Meanwhile a fishing boat in Wilmington, North Carolina discovers a badly scarred body floating in the water. When the local coroner later examines the body he is astonished to see the lips moving.
When Doggett learns the body was identified as Billy Miles, thought to be dead for months but now alive, he instructs Assistand Director Skinner not to tell Scully and has Mulder's body exhumed.
Scully rushes to the Bethesda Naval hospital demanding to see Mulder. Skinner tells her that he is alive although in a critical condition, not wanting to raise Scully's hope to high.
Doggett is again called to Kersh's office and ordered to drop the investigation. Shortly afterwards AD Skinner looses consciousness in the hallway. When he recovers he finds Krycek waiting for him. He offers Skinner some of Bill Mulder's vaccine that could save Mulder's life, but there is a price, he must make sure that Scully does not give birth. Skinner refuses and Krycek leaves with the vaccine.
Doggett finds Skinner disconnecting Mulder's life support and tries to stop him. Skinner tells Doggett about Krycek and the vaccine. Doggett rushes to the parking lot to stop Krycek, but he breaks the vial before Doggett can get it. He goes back upstairs and Scully tells him Mulder is in the operating room, the removal of the life support stopped incubating the virus, a course of anti-virals should save Mulder.
Scully: "You just won't believe it, will you? Not even for a minute. Not even with
it staring you right in the face."
Doggett: "Is that so important to you? What I believe or don't believe?"
