This episode is confusing. There are so many plot elements and red herrings that when Scully says it's "kind of hard to tell the villains without a scorecard," you'd best believe her. But when I found out that "Red Museum" was originally intended to be a cross-over with the CBS series Picket Fences until the network vetoed the idea, it all made sense. This was a fast re-write, designed to clear all references to someone else's universe, which never quite gelled.

Writer: Chris Carter
Director: Win Phelps
Originally aired: December 9, 1994

Synopsis:
When several teenagers from a small town in Wisconsin are kidnapped and returned with the phrase "he is one" written on their backs, Mulder and Scully are called in to investigate.

Most Memorable Quote:
Scully: So, you started to tell me about walk-ins but I'm not sure if I grasped the finer points.
Mulder: Well, it, it's kind of a new age religion based on an old idea. That if you, uh, lose hope or despair and want to leave this mortal coil, you become open and vulnerable.
Scully: To inhabitation by a new spirit.
Mulder: A new enlightened spirit. According to the literature, Abe Lincoln was a walk-in. And Mikhail Gorbachev and Charles Colson, Nixon's advisor.
Scully: But not Nixon?
Mulder: No. Not even they want to claim Nixon.

Fanfiction:
There are a few stories at Gossamer. Of those I've read, I can recommend "Camera Lucida 01 - Latency" by tree and "Camera Obscura 01 - Latency" by A. Kelley Nolan
