After [[Fox Mulder]]'s [[alien abduction]] at the end of [[The X-Files (season 7)|season seven]], newly-promoted [[Deputy Director]] [[Alvin Kersh]] assigns pragmatic [[Special Agent]] [[John Doggett]] to head up the taskforce searching for Mulder. At the start of the episode, Mulder's desk is being cleared to find evidence which could help the manhunt. Kersh sends [[Walter Skinner]] and [[Dana Scully]] down to the taskforce office to be interrogated. While Skinner walks down to the interrogation room with [[Gene Crane]], Scully waits. An unnamed person next to her then starts asking her questions about Mulder. When she finds out that person is Doggett, she throws water in his face.
   
SUMMARY
+
Back at Scully's apartment, she uses her computer to run a background check on Doggett. She then feels sick and leaves the computer and later on calls her mom, [[Margaret Scully]]. When she finds out her phone is tapped, she looks outside the window to see if anyone was out there. She sees a mysterious man, and she runs down the hall where she meets her landlord Mr. Coeben who tells her that it was Mulder he saw in the hallway.
   
==Background Information==
+
Meanwhile, Skinner visits [[The Lone Gunmen]], who are checking for any [[UFO]] activity in the [[United States]] which could be connected to Mulder's abduction. Skinner later finds out that someone has used Mulder's FBI pass to get into the FBI to reach some [[X-File]]s, and Skinner has become the main suspect. Doggett on the other hand gathered enough evidence to track Mulder's whereabouts before his abduction. He finds out that Mulder is dying [[File:GravestoneWithFoxMulder.jpg|thumb|Mulder added his name to the family stone.]]and that he engraved his name in his family's gravestone to mark his death in 2000. Later on, The Lone Gunmen state they are seeing increased UFO activity in [[Arizona]]. In the meantime, Doggett gets information about [[Gibson Praise]] when someone slips Gibson's file under his door.

Scully and Skinner leave for Arizona without giving any of their information to Doggett. Doggett believes that to find Mulder they must first find the whereabouts of Praise.

By the time Doggett's taskforce has arrived, he had already escaped via a window and left for a desert hill top with another person.

*In the script used to film this episode, Agent Doggett is once mistakenly referred to as "Agent White", as the character was originally to have been named Bud White after a character in the movie ''[[Los Angeles|LA]] Confidential''.

== Production ==
  +
*This episode marks the first major change to the opening credits since the show first started with new images, updated photos for [[David Duchovny]] and [[Gillian Anderson]] and the addition of [[Robert Patrick]] to the main cast.
   
*According to writer [[Chris Carter]], this episode begins "a day or two" after [[Fox Mulder|Mulder]]'s [[alien abduction|abduction]] seen in the final episode of [[TXF Season 7|Season 7]], "[[Requiem]]". The episode's script reveals that the scene in which Scully stands looking at herself in a mirror, near the start of the episode, is set on her first working day without Mulder.
+
*After David Duchovny's departure as a main character after the seventh season, Carter and most fans felt the show was at its natural endpoint, but it was decided [[Mulder]] would be [[alien abduction|abducted]] at the end of the seventh season, leaving things open for the actor's return in 11 episodes the following year.
