Paper Clip


Episode Info

"Paper Clip" is the concluding chapter of a three-part X-Files story which began with the second-season cliffhanger "Anasazi." Recovering from injuries sustained in an explosion, Mulder tries to determine the connection between his father's death and a large-scale government cover-up known as "Operation Paper Clip." Complicating matters is the possibility that Mulder's own boss, Assistant FBI Director Skinner (Mitch Pileggi), has been assigned to "silence" the inquisitive agent. Meanwhile, Scully, at last secure in the knowledge that Mulder is alive, faces a serious crisis of her own. Written by Chris Carter, "Paper Clip" first aired September 29, 1995.
