Read an Excerpt

Chapter One

Episode 7X03:
The Sixth Extinction

The episode opens with a recap of the storyline of "Biogenesis" (6X22), which concluded with Mulder in the grip of insanity in a padded room and Scully standing in shallow water on an African shore, staring at what is undoubtedly a spacecraft.

Surf crashes on a long crescent shore. Moonlight bounces off a great expanse of water, defining a vague meeting of sea and sky on the shores of the Ivory Coast, West Africa.

Scully's voice breaks with the crashing of waves.

"I came in search of something I did not believe existed."

A white tent glows on the beach, lit from within by lantern light.

"I've stayed on now in spite of myself. In spite of everything I've ever held to be true."

Inside the tent, Scully sits at a table, studying a photo with a magnifying glass by flickering lamplight.

"I will continue here as long as I can. As long as you're beset by the haunting illness which I saw consume your beautiful mind."

Scully looks deeper into the photo of what appears to be a spaceship in the shallow water.

"What is this discovery I've made? How can I reconcile what I see with what I know? I feel this was meant not for me to find, but for you. To make sense of, make the connections which can't be ignored."

Scully reaches for a mysterious paper rubbing. As she brings it close to the photo for comparison, the lantern flame begins to flicker and dance.

"Connections which for me deny all logic and reason," she solemnly intones as she compares the photo and the rubbing, and finds that their mysterious symbols match. "What is this source of power I hold in my hand? This rubbing. A simple impression taken from the surface of the craft."

Scully lays the rubbing down. A moth lands on it.

"I watched this rubbing take its undeniable hold on you, saw you succumb to its spiraling effect. Now I must work to uncover what your illness prevents you from finding. In the source of every illness lies its cure."

More and more bugs land on the lantern. As Scully rises and reaches to turn it off, the figure of an old, primitively dressed African man materializes behind Scully. She sees the figure in reflection a second before she turns off the light. She quickly whips around.

"Who's there?" she asks. "Who's there?"

She relights the lantern and sees that there is no one else in the tent. Scully grabs a machete and cautiously steps toward the tent opening, unaware that the table she is working on is now crawling with bugs. She throws back the tent flap and steps out into the moonlight. She scans the darkness, sees nothing, and turns back into the tent.

The tent is now swarming with bugs. She tries to turn off the lantern, but as she reaches for the switch the bugs turn their attention to Scully and swarm around her. The bugs are in her eyes, her face, all over her body. She flails wildly with her arms. Scully screams in terror.

Mulder is huddled in his padded cell.

"He's been quiet for the last thirty-six hours," says the voice of Dr. Harriman. "But he doesn't sleep."

Mulder is being held in a neuropsych ward. Each door has a video monitor situated next to it. Watching Mulder through one of these monitors with deep concern are Dr. Harriman and FBI Assistant Director Skinner.

Harriman says, "There's activity in the temporal lobe we've just never seen. It won't allow his brain to rest or shut down. Manifesting in episodes of aggression, sometimes against himself."

"You can't sedate him?" asks Skinner.

"Yes," says Harriman. "We slow him down for short periods and put him in the neuro ward. It's the only way we're able to run tests. But over time his brain is going to just die."

Mulder's face is drawn, his eyes sunken, his gown ripped and coated with blood. He does not look up as the door to his room opens.

"Agent Mulder," says Skinner as he and Dr. Harriman enter the room.

"Agent Mulder," repeats Skinner. "Can you hear me?" He gets no reaction.

Mulder makes eye contact with Skinner. He doesn't appear to recognize him.

"Do you know who I am? It's Skinner. Walter Skinner."

Skinner is upset by what he sees. He turns to Dr. Harriman.

"Can we get him out of here, give him some fresh air at least?" asks Skinner.

Mulder suddenly jumps to his feet and attacks Skinner, shoving him against the wall and wrapping his hands around his neck, choking him.

"Let him go, he can't breathe!" says Harriman as he tries to separate the two men. Mulder is not letting go. The two men fall to the floor as Dr. Harriman races from the room and presses a PANIC button. Skinner is bleeding from the nose, his eyes bulging as he tries to fight off Mulder with a straight arm.

"Let go, Mulder," says Skinner. "I don't want to hurt you."

Two male orderlies race into the room and rip Mulder off Skinner, pinning him against the wall. Harriman moves to Skinner.

"It's all right. Just let me get up," says Skinner.

Mulder raves like a madman as Skinner, wiping blood from his face, leaves the room. Dr. Harriman orders up mega-restraints and sedatives.

Outside the padded cell, Skinner notices something in his shirt pocket. He pulls out a small piece of ripped cloth the color of Mulder's hospital gown.

Written in dried blood are the words HELP ME.

The tent sits silently in the early-morning sun. There is no sign of Scully. Two old rustedout Jeeps round into view, carrying loads of African men who jump out near the water's edge and...

    For any Phile

    After waiting for so long for its release, any X-Phile would appreciate it. This time, by different author from the last few guides, the guide is better than ever, with precise episode synopses, and the photos are the best quality so far. They are clear, and the synopses/back stories are simpler -- written with black type on white background, unlike Vol. 5. Bottom line: A must for any Phile.
