The X-files

9X08 Trust No 1

Scully logs on to a private mailbox in an Internet cafe to find a message from Mulder, expressing his wish to return to her and baby William. Before Scully can reply she notices a woman with a baby come in to the cafe, the woman leaves her baby alone as she argues with a man outside before returning. When Scully arrives at Quantico, both Doggett and Reyes are there to speak to her. An anonymous source has been trying to contact Mulder with information about the Super Soldiers, but will only deal with Mulder. They ask Scully if she can get word to Mulder but she tells them she has no way of contacting Mulder. Doggett is annoyed that Scully will not trust him. That evening Scully sees the woman from the cafe on her street, the man she was arguing with takes her baby and drives off. Concerned for the woman who is called Patti, Scully offers her a bed for the night. Meanwhile Doggett and Reyes are on a stake out having traced the anonymous sourceís telephone call to an address. When a man comes out of the building, they follow him. At Scullyís apartment Patti goes in to Williamís room, she switches off the baby monitor and picks him up. Scully is awoken by a call from Doggett, the man they tailed is at her apartment. Scully finds Patti holding William and pulls a gun on her. While Doggett and Reyes tackle the man, who it turns out is Pattiís husband. He works for the National Security Agency and has been watching Scully. Patti says that just like William, their daughter is different. Her husband confided in his supervisor at the NSA, who told him the children were linked to the Super Soldier program, they had wanted Mulder to uncover the truth. But is there more to their story?
