MULDER'S WORLD FALLS APART AROUND HIM AS EVERY SINGLE PERSON HE TRUSTS SEEMS TO TURN AGAINST HIM IN A CONSPIRACY LEADING TO THE HEART OF THE MYSTERY HE CHASES.
When a computer hacker breaks into the most secret files of the Department of Defense, he uncovers a secret going back to the end of World War II. Mulder is drawn in as he is handed what may be the ultimate proof of extraterrestrial existence, government conspiracy and the fate of his sister. But his increasingly irrational behavior alarms Scully, who must save him from himself as his actions take him farther and farther from the tenuous hold the Bureau has on him, into the realms of the most extreme possibility. The conspirators Mulder has fought against emerge with a vengeance, threatening the lives not only of Mulder's family but of Mulder himself in a season-finale cliff-hanger, the first of a three-part series.
