Same locale. A few hours later. Scully notices holes in the walls of the warehouse similar to the holes in the ceiling of the prison. She tells Doggett that it's certainly precision marksmanship, but that the shooter shot this victims from another room. Doggett comments that if the shooter was in another room, how the hell did he see his victims? Scully blathers a bunch of scientific-sounding stuff which basically adds up to "he has x-ray vision! You know, like Superman!" BoobWatch2001: A Whole New Year: I'm pleased to report that the boobs are demurely swathed in a lovely maroon oxford shirt. Oh, and Doggett doesn't buy the x-ray vision crap. Color me shocked. He does advance the plot by telling Scully that "sulfuric fluoride" was found at the scene. I wonder if that's used in, oh, exterminating stuff. By the way, I know it's probably not spelled sulfuric. But I was an English major and my closed captioning isn't working, so deal with me, okay?

Back at AAA-1 Surekill Exterminating and X-Ray, Tommy harasses poor book-cooking Tammy. We get it: he's a Bad Man. Poor sweet Randall uses his x-ray vision to look through the walls of Tommy's office, as Tammy reluctantly takes off her blouse for the Big Bad Boss. Randall's nostrils flare possessively. He glances at the closed front door to the warehouse, then slinks away, just as Doggett and Scully walk in. That was a nice bit; indicating that he saw them through the wall before they opened the door. On the other hand, the first time I saw this episode, I missed that because I'd fallen into a coma of BOREDOM.
Doggett and Scully interrupt all that Love in the Afternoon, introduce themselves to Tommy, and shove the records of his dealings with Carlton Chase in his face, asking if he recognizes them. Tommy apologizes and explains that he doesn't recognize much, except for shapes; he's been legally blind since birth. Wow, for a legally blind guy, he sure has a great ability to stare piercingly into other people's eyes, and, you know, not run into things. He calls Tammy in to read the papers for him, however, and she's just classy enough to emerge from his office whilst still tucking in her shirt. I'd just like to say that the good people of Worcester, Mass., are coming out of this episode looking really stellar. Maybe y'all ought to sue Chris Carter for defamation. Anyway, Tammy explains to the agents that she's cooking the books, and Randall's killing people with his magic x-ray vision. Not really; she just explains that the papers represent last month's billing. Doggett informs Tommy that they found a scrap of fabric at the crime scene, which contained traces of the chemical that I can't spell. Tommy off-handedly remarks that they use that very chemical to kill stuff all the time. And so does every other exterminating and x-ray vision killing business. "You've done time," Doggett remarks, apropos of nothing. I guess he's psychic, because Tommy admits that he has, but now, you know, he's an upstanding citizen. Except for the killing and the stealing. Doggett wonders why Carlton Chase called AAA-1 X-Ray fourteen minutes before he died. Tommy looks blank. Tammy looks dumbfounded. Tommy claims that if Chase called, they weren't there, and there was no message. Scully and Doggett give up and leave.
