Looking like hell, Doggett stumbles back into the hospital, where Skinner meets him in the hallway. "Did you get the vaccine?" Skinner asks. Doggett doesn't say anything. Skinner looks away. "Listen to me," Doggett says. "You weren't wrong. He wasn't to be trusted." Skinner walks away, passing so close to Doggett that their shoulders brush. "Can't you see that I'm in love with you?" Doggett yells after him.
In the OR, Scully is prepping to do some surgical shit. I don't know. This isn't ER, and also, I doubt whatever she's doing is an actual, non-fictional surgical procedure, as it involves alien life forms. Anyway, Doggett trots up to the window looking into the surgical theatre, and sees Mulder lying on the table and Scully looking cute as a little button in her maternity surgical gear. Doggett swings into the OR. "Is he going to make it?" Doggett asks. "I don't know," Scully says. "I really don't know how he could have known." Doggett is confused. "Keeping him on life support was incubating the virus," Scully explains. She throws out a bunch of medical words, all of which basically add up to the fact that when Skinner took Mulder off life support, he accidentally saved his life. Scully smiles weepily and explains that she doesn't even think they need the vaccine, because the series of anti-virals she's starting Mulder on might actually save his life.
Kersh's office. Man, is he angry with Doggett, who's got one hell of a shiner. Doggett excuses his tardiness by explaining that he was with Scully at the hospital. "I know," Kersh coolly replies. They exchange glares. "It's going to be awfully crowded down in that X-Files office," Kersh snarks. Doggett almost smiles. Kersh sits down, puts on his glasses and peers over them at Doggett. "Maybe you didn't hear me," he snits. "I said, you're on the wrong floor." Doggett waits a beat. "Yes, sir," he says, before leaving the office.
