9X19 The Truth
Armed with a keycard, Mulder gains access to Mount Weather, a secret government facility, looking for further evidence of the ongoing conspiracy.
After locating a computer terminal Mulder use the password he was given to unlock a file detailing the final stages of the alien colonisation, the date is set....22/12/2012.
Mulder is interrupted by Knowle Rohrer, who chases him through the facility. In the ensuing struggle Rohrer falls on to high voltage lines but Mulder is
captured by armed guards.
Because Mount Weather is under military jurisdiction, Mulder faces murder charges in front of a military tribunal, headed by Deputy Director Kersh.
Assistant Director Skinner informs Scully of Mulder's predicament, she is at first grateful for his return then horrified by the prospects of him
facing a death sentence if convicted.
Doggett and Reyes are incredulous about the murder charges as they know that Rohrer is an alien replicant/super solider.
They are further frustrated when the military give them the run around on the whereabouts of Rohrer's body.
Mulder has no illusions that his trial is a farce, that the verdict has already been decided, however he asks AD Skinner to defend him.
They realise their only hope is to use the trial to prove the existence of a government conspiracy involving aliens and that Mulder was at
Mount Weather investigating this.
AD Skinner calls Scully to testify about being assigned to the X-files to keep an eye on Mulder. She tells them she is a believer after nine years of investigating.
Doggett testifies about his involvement in the X-files, however his lack of belief in the alien conspiracy does not help, Reyes's testimony is
more helpful, however a lack of concrete proof of a conspiracy works against Mulder, until they locate Marita Covarrubias, who was employed by the conspiracy
in her capacity at the UN. However knowing that her testimony will lead to her death at the hands of the conspiracy, Mulder refuses to let her testify.
Meanwhile Gibson Praise, who had been hiding Mulder in Mexico since he left the X-files, travels to Washington to help defend him. Mulder does not want him
to, but AD Skinner allows Gibson to testify. Gibson identifies one of the tribunal members as an alien replicant.
Doggett finally manages to track down Rohrer's body and Scully's autopsy proves that it is not Rohrer, if Rohrer is not dead then the charges against Mulder are false.
However the tribunal finds Mulder guilty and sentences him to death by lethal injection.
AD Skinner and Doggett take matters in to their own hands, springing Mulder from his cell. To their surprise they are helped off the base by DD Kersh.
With Mulder and Scully finally reunited, they head off to New Mexico in search of the truth. Doggett and Reyes return to Washington to find the X-files
have been closed once and for all.
Mulder and Scully arrive at an old Anasazi site searching for a wise man who knows the final truth, which turns out to be the Cigarette Smoking Man. It was him that sent
Mulder the Mount Weather keycard and password, so he would know that the date it set and there is nothing anyone can do to stop it.
Mulder and Scully leave just as black helicopters arrive and destroy the area, killing the Cigarette Smoking Man. They hide out in
a hotel in Roswell, Mulder laments that his work on the X-files was ultimately for nothing and with the X-files closed their
avenues for exposing the truth are limited. Mulder and Scully commit themselves to find a way to resist and save humanity.
Scully: "You've always said that you want to believe. But believe in what
Mulder? If this is the truth that you've been looking for then what is left to
Mulder: "I want to believe that the dead are not lost to us. That they speak to
us as part of something greater than us-- greater than any alien force. And if
you and I are powerless now, I want to believe that if we listen to what's
speaking, it can give us the power to save ourselves."
