They investigate a series of mysterious deaths of a number of high school students.
Mulder claims that aliens are abducting the kids.
After some investigating, they believe that the town's sheriff's son, Billy is involved in the murders, although he is lying in a hospital in a near-comatose state.

Mulder and Scully find Billy in the woods where the kids were found, raising a teenaged girl in the air towards a bright light in the sky.
