In Myron's barn, of course, lurks the ManBat. He doesn't eat poor Myron, though; he just hangs nicely off the beam over the car.
Myron is fiddling around with the lake some more, sending what appears to be gas and supplies out on a raft type thing.
Remember the guy with the bandanna over his face and the Bat Doorknocker? Yeah, later in the evening, he pulls the raft loaded with supplies onto the beach of Bird Island, just as Scully and Doggett happen to be rowing by. I think they were following the raft, y'all. Or they just gave up on the police-work thing and went for a nice moonlight row on the river. Anyway, they holler at Bandanna Man to "stop right there!" He rudely disobeys and runs off into the brush. Doggett rows their boat ashore, alleluia, and Scully goes in hot pursuit of Bandanna Man.
She catches him in the midst of some underbrush, and guess what? He's Ernie Stefanik, and he wears the bandanna because his face is covered in unsightly scars, which he must cover from, um, the birds and plants on the island! Don't look at him! He's hideous! (Actually, he looks kind of like John Huston in Chinatown, if he'd cut his face shaving. That is to say, not particularly scarred or hideous at all.)
Inside Ernie's swinging bachelor BatPad, the scarred one drones on and on about the horrors of living life after "fear becomes obsession." I am officially bored and begin preparing the relish tray that I'm taking to Thanksgiving dinner. After I arrange the pickles into little geometric shapes, I turn on CNN for a while. I knit an afghan for my grandchildren, who surely will have been born by the time this episode is over. I do six loads of laundry. I turn off CNN and watch Blind Date. When I get back to The X-Files, Doggett and Scully have established that Ernie's living alone on the island to escape ManBat, and he's freaked out because ManBat totally has it out for him because of his hand the original ManBatHunt. When Ernie's wife, formerly known as Lake Lady, died, he obeyed her dying wish and sent her body back to the mainland to be buried "on consecrated ground." Poor Ernie bursts into tears thinking about his dead wife. He loves his dead, non-gay wife. Scully looks sad and informs him that, unfortunately, ManBat is on the prowl again; that he seems to have picked up Ernie's scent from his wife's body, despite her having been burned; and, worst of all, he's systematically knocking off anyone who's handled her body. Scared, Ernie asks after his brother. Scully informs him that Myron was fine that afternoon. Ernie points out that, duh, ManBat hunts LIKE A BAT, at night. Scully and Doggett exchange looks. What a couple of numbnuts; how obvious was that? Doggett agrees to go check on Myron, if Scully will stay with Ernie.
