Episode Info

Originally telecast February 16, 1996, "Apocrypha" was the conclusion of a two-part X-Files story that began with the previous week's "Piper Maru." Investigating the submerged wreckage of an apparent WWII-era fighter plane, Mulder and Scully quickly realize that the aircraft was actually extraterrestrial in nature. Following this lead, the two FBI operatives come face to face with rogue agent Alex Krycek (Nicholas Lea), who never met a government conspiracy he didn't like. The whole affair may very well enable Scully to solve the murder of her sister (a throwback to the September 29, 1995, episode "Paper Clip"). "Apocrypha" was written by Frank Spotnitz and Chris Carter.
