Season 9, Episode 10:

And into the light.
Written by Chris Carter & Frank Spotnitz
Directed by Chris Carter

"You tell me on that ship is written scripture from the world's great religions. Tell me a religion that decrees the death of a child. Not just your child, but any child. This is a man saying these things to us."
Monica Reyes

A UFO religion cult believes that Scully's baby is destined to either save mankind from the alien colonists or lead the alien colonists against humanity.


  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Josepho's beliefs of God led him to unearthing the alien spaceship and kidnapping William in the hopes of uncovering the truth about extraterrestrials. This bites him in the ass, as William's cries activate the spaceship and completely incinerates or absorbs him.
  • Kill It with Fire: The UFO Religion Cult brings William near the spaceship, which abruptly starts incinerating everyone except William.
  • Myth Arc: 2nd part of a two-parter, which focuses on Scully trying to save her baby from a deranged UFO Religion Cult.
  • Wham Shot: The back of the Toothpick Man's neck is shown in the last shot, containing the tell-tale bumps of a Super Soldier.

Kersh: Congratulations - it would appear now that everything is dead but this case.
Toothpick Man: I'm sure I can take care of that, Deputy Director. Quite sure.
