In part one of the two-part X-Files drama "Dreamland," Mulder and Scully's visit to the legendary Area 51 resulted in a freakish personality transference, with Mulder literally changing places with "Man in Black" Morris Fletcher (Michael McKean). Unaware of the switch, Scully -- who is down in the dumps after being placed on suspension -- accepts "Mulder's" invitation to a home-cooked meal, and is in for the first in a long line of surprises. Meanwhile, "Fletcher" is stuck in the Area 51 brig, unable to convince anyone that, despite all appearances, he's not Fletcher -- and that things had better be returned to normal before something cataclysmic happens. Written by Vince Gilligan, John Shiban, and Frank Spotnitz, "Dreamland II" was originally broadcast December 8, 1998.
