FBI has shut down the X-Files and has put Fox Mulder and Dana Scully has been assigned new tasks at the Bureau. Mulder is put on a very dull surveillance job and Scully is now teaching younger aspiring agents.
However, Mulder’s obsession with the paranormal has not stopped and he uses whatever opportunity he has to keep the work of the X-Files active and he even starts to get assignments that might look ordinary to most, but not to the experienced eyes of Mulder.
Mulder also gets a new partner in Alex Krycek, who presents himself as a believer in Mulder’s work. Mulder also gets a new informant in the mysterious man who just calls himself X. One of the cases they get to work on is a hostage situation where a crazy guy named Duane Berry is holding a group of people, including his old psychiatrist Dr. Hakkie hostage. The case ends with Berry being able to escape from a mental institution and kidnaps Scully to deliver her to the aliens so they can abduct her instead of him.
