The X-Files - Season 3, Episode 9 - Rotten Tomatoes

Episode Info

Part one of a two-part X-Files drama, "Nisei" originally aired November 24, 1995. The story begins with the screening of a videotape that supposedly depicts an actual alien autopsy (not unlike the tape that was then being heavily promoted by X-Files' parent Fox Network). The clues provided by this tape lead Mulder and Scully to a strange group of people who may hold the clues to Scully's mysterious disappearance the previous year. By the time the episode has reached its climax, both Scully and Mulder are in danger of extermination for knowing too much. "Nisei" was written by Chris Carter, Howard Gordon, and Frank Spotnitz.
