While Doggett bleeds to death in the middle of the road, Moronica and Scully pull into one of Washington's many dark, dark alleys. They're met by the Lone Gunmen, "the only ones left [Scully] can trust." According to her. Langly, Frohike, and Byers coo at the baby as Scully sputters about being careful and taking precautions and basically taking care of William in exactly the opposite manner of her own parenting practices. But the Gunmen assure her that they've thought of everything. Eventually, Scully gives William a final kiss, and heads for the car. "Whatever you do, don't worry," Frohike says as she goes. Famous last words, and Frohike of all people should know better. Moronica shoots the boys a cautionary look and follows Scully out to the car.
Scully and Moronica return to Georgetown to find Scully's street overrun by EMS personnel and cops, including Skinner. "What is it?" Moronica asks him. Skinner says nothing. "Is it John?" she asks. Again, nothing. Moronica goes running off to see what happened to her partner, though she certainly could have looked more concerned. I look more concerned when my handbag gets wet. And, hey, 1013? We're never going to believe that the two of them are in love. Friends, yes. But lurve? Not so much. Finally, Scully peels herself out of the car and stands and stares at Skinner. She shakes her head and runs around to the driver's side, leaping back into the car. "My baby!" she says, "They're after my baby! I have to get back!" She peels out. Skinner just stands there and wonders why nobody wants to talk to him.
Dark Alleyway. The Gunmen have loaded the baby into the car. Byers sits in the back with William, Frohike takes shotgun, and Langly's driving. That may be important, so make a note. They're pulling out of the alley just as Overcoat Woman's SUV pulls into it. "What the hell is this?" Frohike asks. "What the hell is what?" Byers wonders. Just as the words spill out of his mouth, Overcoat Woman shoots out the van's tires and the boys crash into a light post. William wails. Frohike is bloody, but moving. I can't see Langly at all. Overcoat Woman opens the van door and presses her handgun to Byers's skull. Byers! No!
