Episode Info

A dangerous paramilitary leader named Jacob Haley (Daniel Von Bargen) has escaped from the Feds, and Mulder is held responsible. Much to the astonishment of his partner, Scully, Mulder seems to be in cahoots with the fugitive, a suspicion apparently confirmed when the FBI agent joins Haley's illegal militia group. Props essential to the story include a deadly biotoxin that Haley intends to use to commit wholesale biological terrorism. Written by Frank Spotnitz and John Shiban, "The Pine Bluff Variant" first aired May 3, 1998.
