A drunk Agent Pendrell meets Scully in a Washington, D.C. bar. Pendrell offers to buy her and her companion, a Sargent Frish, a drink. As Pendrell staggers across the room to bring the drinks to Scully, the Mustached Man appears. He raises his gun to shoot Sargent Frish. However, he shoots Pendrell in the chest. Scully rushes over to help him, now gasping on the floor, and the episode is to be continued.
