Episode Info

First telecast March 8, 1998, "The Red and the Black" was the conclusion to a two-part thriller that began with the previous week's "Patient X." At the sight of a grisly mass immolation, Scully is hypnotized so that she can piece together the events leading up to the disaster. Meanwhile, Mulder faces a showdown with extraterrestrials who might hold the key to the vast UFO-coverup conspiracy. Self-avowed alien abductee Cassandra Spender (Veronica Cartwright) and ubiquitous rogue agent Krycek (Nicholas Lea) are also involved in the proceedings. "The Red and the Black" was co-written by X-Files producers Chris Carter and Frank Spotnitz.
