Death of Cobra as Dana Scully witnesses

Cobra (played by Timothy Landfield) was a scientist who worked with alien technology at DARPA and was involved in the development of a miracle cure for all human disease, including cancer. In 2000, the Cigarette Smoking Man falsely used the identity of Dana Scully to contact "Cobra" and arrange a meeting in Milford, Pennsylvania. Scully traveled with the Smoking Man after the supposedly miraculous cure of Jason McPeck to retrieve a data disc containing the genetic research into the alien technology. The Smoking Man claimed that he wished Scully to use the cure wisely and prove that he was capable of more than just destruction. After dinner with the Smoking Man, Scully was given instructions to meet with Cobra the following morning. The two of them rendezvoused in boats where she was given the disc. Cobra was familiar with Scully, but she insisted they had never spoken. Instantly, it became clear that Cobra had been manipulated into believing that he had actually been communicating with Scully when he had, in fact, not. Before he could explain, Cobra was shot dead by the Black-Haired Man. (TXF: "En Ami")
