Episode Info

Mulder and Scully attempt to clear their boss, Assistant Director Skinner (Mitch Pileggi), of a murder charge. It seems that Skinner met a woman (Amanda Tapping) in a singles bar, then woke up beside the woman's dead -- and desecrated -- body. Not surprisingly, Skinner has been set up as a patsy by a group of government conspirators. Even so, the two agents learn more than they want to know about Skinner's private life. Co-written by series star David Duchovny and Howard Gordon, "Avatar" was originally broadcast April 26, 1996.
