When captured he had Mulder’s sister’s X-files case file on him. Scully arranges for him to be transferred to Quantico so that she can examine him. He claims his disfigurement is dues to injections administered to him and requests Scully’s help to make the men who did it to him pay. When a background check on him comes up with nothing Doggett becomes convinced that the man is Mulder! Scully refutes this telling Doggett before he left Mulder had Scully remove the X-files case files Daniel was looking for from the X-files basement office. So if he was Mulder he would have known she had the case files in her apartment. She confides in Daniel that they know he gave a false identity, he tells her people within the FBI, the same people who want Mulder dead would kill him if his true identity were known. Scully takes him in to protective custody at her apartment. Assistant Director Skinner calls Doggett to his office when DNA test results match with Mulder’s, convincing both Doggett and Reyes that the man is indeed Mulder. Scully however remains adamant that it is not Mulder. As she has spent time with him and knows he is not the man she loves. However he does appear to have intimate information about Mulder and Scully’s life. And it soon becomes clear that his interest in baby William is the real reason for his appearance.

Noteworthy Quote

Reyes: "You stole several files pertaining to the 1973 abduction of Mulder's sister. But yet you say there's danger to your life right now."

Jeffrey Spender: "The conspiracy to keep the truth about aliens from the American public all but destroyed a few years ago has given rise to a new conspiracy in the government now by men who are alien themselves."
