However, after a government building is destroyed, Mulder is approached by a mysterious doctor, Alvin Kurtzweil Martin Landau , who reveals that a new strain of the black oil has been discovered in North Texas.
The new strain allows an extraterrestrial to gestate inside the host within 96 hours. Kurtzweil argues that the conspiracy deliberately placed the bomb within the government to hide the evidence.
