The X-files

9X07 John Doe

Mexican police pick up Doggett, who is suffering from amnesia. With no papers and no knowledge of where he is, how he got there or even what his name is, they lock him up. A fellow inmate, Domingo Salmeron informs Doggett he is in Sangradura, Mexico and that the only Americans that normally come to town, are criminals on the run. Domingo bails Doggett out of jail and in return Doggett goes to work for him, smuggling immigrants across the US border. Back in Washington Assistant Director Skinner updates Deputy Director Kersh on the situation. Agent Reyes is in Mexico investigating Doggett’s disappearance. Doggett had been in Texas investigating the disappearance of Hollis Rice, a bank vice president and was last seen crossing the border in to Mexico. DD Kersh wants it turned over to the Mexican authorities to investigate. Meanwhile Doggett has realised from his tattoo that he is a former marine and makes a call to the Marine Corps Public Affairs office pretending to be a Mexican police officer trying to identify someone suffering from amnesia. However Domingo believes he has discovered who Doggett is, producing a flyer describing Henry Bruck, an American wanted for murder, the description matches Doggetts. Scully disregards Kersh's orders and joins Reyes in her search in Mexico having learned that someone enquired about a former marine matching Doggett’s description. The call was traced to a small Mexican town called Sangradura. Doggett confronts Domingo about what he knows after one of his men attempted to kill him, Domingo tells Doggett he is one of the disappeared ones. The cartel took his memory and that it can not be retrieved.
