Outside, tanks pull up. Guys with guns pile out. Scully calls the Gunmen and tells them to get Mulder out ASAP. Byers is like, I have no idea how we're going to do that. He calls Mulder to tell him that "the cavalry just arrived."
Mulder: You son of a bitch, you set me up!
Outside, the Feds are still piling out of their fancy-schmancy tanks.
Inside the database room, Doggett grabs Mulder and tries to pull him away from the computer, to safety. He smartly points out that if he'd set him up, he wouldn't be trying to save him now. "They're going to kill you. They're going to kill me, too. That's the set-up," he explains.
The Gunmen are unable to upload the census data, due to some kind of fancy government computer mojo.
Armed Feds start filing into the building. Scully is plotzing outside in her car. Inside, Mulder and Doggett stare interminably at one another.
The Feds run through the building, and into the database room, which is magically empty. Above their heads, a ceiling panel closes softly.
Later. The Park of Clandestine Meetings. Noel running. Doggett meeting. Noel taking off shirt. Doggett threatening. "See that man across the park?" he asks. "You walk, and he puts your name on all the wrong desks." Noel sneers that Doggett wanted information and Noel gave it to him. "You set me up!" Doggett sputters. Noel points out that if Doggett exposes him, he'll have nowhere to get his answers, telling him "this is just the tip of the iceberg." Doggett spits that Noel is full of crap. Noel pulls the whole "you need me more than you know" tactic. "To get a man killed?" Doggett asks. Noel shakes his head. "You think this is about Mulder?" he asks. "This is about the truth. It's all in the X-Files. I'm just trying to point you in the right direction." Doggett looks disgusted, and walks away across the grass to meet Skinner, who's waiting for him under a tree, in which, later, they will sit, K-I-S-S-I-N-G. Noel leans over and takes a drink of water from the fountain, and what do you know, his neck all bumpy and alien-y! Wonders will never cease.
