8X21 Existence

The pathologist called in to autopsy Billy Miles, is less than happy at the lateness of the hour and opts to finish in the morning. After he leaves the metallic vertebrae he found during the initial examination begins to reproduce itself. Next morning, Mulder holds a picture from the security camera showing a health Billy Miles leaving the morgue. Krycek explains to him, Assistant Director Skinner and Doggett that Billy Miles is a new kind of alien, created to repopulate the planet and that he and the others like him are looking for Scully. Doggett is called away by Agent Crane, who informs him that Knowle Rohrer is there to see him. Rohrer tells Doggett that Billy Miles is a prototype, part of a government program to create a super soldier and that Scully was impregnated with such a prototype. He wants to know where she is, but Doggett plays ignorant. When Billy Miles enters the FBI building, Krycek spots him and runs for the elevator, AD Skinner quickly follows, but is cut on the head when Billy Miles’ arm tears through the metal doors. As he recuperates in hospital Doggett tells Mulder what Rohrer told him, but Mulder is suspicious, with good reason it turns out when he and Doggett spot Rohrer talking to Krycek in his car in the basement garage at the FBI building. While Doggett follows Rohrer, who meets with Agent Crane and Deputy Director Kersh, Krycek surprises Mulder and is about to shoot him when AD Skinner arrives and takes his revenge on Krycek.

Scully tells Mulder she has decided to call the baby William after his father, they embrace. Part Two
