One of Scully's friends from the FBI academy, now working in the Violent Crimes Unit, asks her to assist him on a homicide investigation involving no clear point of entry. Mulder realizes that this is similar to a series of X-Files cases that have occurred every thirty years and joins in the investigation to stop the latest cycle.

The episode belongs to the category of "monster of the week", but it appears the main characters from "mythology" of the series: Smoker and Walter Skinner.

Night Eugene Victor Tooms is trying to escape from the detention center for the mentally ill in Baltimore, putting his hand through the window to hand out food to open the bolt of his cell. Suddenly his visits worked with him a psychologist, Dr. Aaron Monte, who tells the Tooms that tomorrow it will probably be released in the courtroom. The Tooms have to wait for tomorrow.

Scully called to the carpet by the Deputy Director of the FBI Walter Skinner, where there is also a Smoker. Despite the large percentage of detection in investigations on "Secret materials", Skinner criticizes unconventional approach to solving problems and demands from his players to act strictly according to the instructions.

At the final hearing in the case of Tooms it is recognized to be normal based on the recommendations of Dr. Monte and his colleagues. Mulder tries to focus the jury's attention from the evidence and the physiology of Tooms, but they ignore his arguments. Tooms was released, Lodge him in a foster home and restore to my old job on the condition that Dr. Monte will continue to monitor the patient.

Again Scully meets with Frank Briggs, the detective investigating the murders Tooms in 1963. Briggs says that the body of one of the victims was never found. Scully and Briggs visit a chemical plant in the territory of which during the laying of the Foundation was found a piece of liver of the victim. After a long search, found immured in the concrete Foundation of the skeleton. Meanwhile, watching Tooms. The agent manages to thwart the attempt of Tooms kill a man, but a mutant completely hidden.

Experts examine the skeleton with a chemical plant and recognize that it's the missing victim in 1933, but there is no compelling evidence that the murder was committed by Tooms. Scully follows Mulder when he is spying on the new place of residence of the Tooms in the house of the foster family. At this time, Tooms is hiding in the trunk of the car, Mulder. At night, he sneaks into the apartment of the agent and simulates the traces of a beating, leaving your face imprint Shoe Mulder. After that, Tooms is sent to the hospital. In the morning, Mulder is questioned by the police and informs about the incident to his superiors. Mulder explains to Skinner that Tooms had set him up, but the chief forbids the agent to approach the Tombs.

As a result of further studies of the skeleton found in the basement of a chemical plant, found bite marks on the ribs of the victim. Assessors are able to compare these traces with the shape of the teeth of the Tooms and determine their complete coincidence. Mulder and Scully are sent to the Tooms.

Dr. Monte comes to see Eugene Tooms when his foster family goes to the movies. Tooms kills the doctor and gets the liver he needed for the next 30-year hibernation. After finding the body of Dr. Monte, Mulder and Scully travel to the previous dwelling place of the Tombs on Exeter street, 66. It turns out that this building was demolished and in its place was built shopping center. Mulder underneath the escalator detects a socket Tooms. Covered with bile Tooms suddenly jumps out of the nest and trying to kill Mulder begins to chase him in the tunnel. Get out from under the escalator with the help of Scully, Mulder includes a mechanism that crushes a mutant to death.

Skinner reads the report Scully in the case of Tooms and by asking the Smoker, believes that everything written gets an affirmative answer. On the street, Scully finds Mulder looking at a caterpillar cocoon on a tree branch. Mulder thoughtfully predicts that on "x-files" change is coming.

Phenomena in artwork: Land creatures

As the unknown beings in the third series of the first season is a genetic mutant maniac Eugene Tooms, who eats liver for survival during hibernation. This man has abnormal metabolism and development of the skeleton and muscles that allows him to infiltrate the homes of the victims through a very narrow space (ventilation, chimney, etc.). In addition to anomalies of musculoskeletal system it differs in that it lives for over a hundred years, periodically falling into a long-term (30-year) hibernation.

This creature also appears in the 21st episode of the first season of the series. New information this series does not add, however, the operator is often a closeup shows the face of Tooms and his eye pupils in moments of finding prey become bright yellow. Probably, this eye color is a reference to the symptom that manifests in people with liver disease, caused by a large number of pigment bilirubin within the blood during the destruction of the cells of the body. However, in these cases, usually painted the whites of the eyes and skin, not the pupils.

Also in series 21, we show the cocoon, which is building the Tombs of the Newspapers in which planning to lie down in the next hibernation.

It is clear that for effect movie mutant abilities have been greatly exaggerated. In real life, of course, there are people with hypermobility or elasticity of the joints (for example, the same syndrome, Ehlers-Danlos, where defects in collagen synthesis lead to highly flexible joints and elastic, but easily breaking the skin or Marfan syndrome), but to stretch the limbs, as shown in the episode, they can't.

It is difficult to predict, who would have thought people had something similar in the real world. On the one hand, the mutant shows the behavior of a purely human characteristic maniacs. On the other hand, the means of entry to the home evoke thoughts of the supernatural. If judged only by abnormally long limbs, the creature can be called slenderman (during the filming of this phenomenon did not exist), but it does not fit other characteristics. To other known phenomena it fits even less, so added to the unknown creatures.
