Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Scully (Gillian Anderson) again briefly abandons her academic duties to help Reyes (Annabeth Gish) locate the missing Doggett (Robert Patrick). Meanwhile, Doggett awakens in an obscure Mexican town, with no memory of how he got there nor any clue as to his own identity. In this amnesiac state, Doggett is inexorably drawn into a vicious gang of alien smugglers. First telecast on January 13, 2002, "John Doe" represented writer Vince Gilligan's return to The X-Files fold after a lengthy absence. Incidentally, the actress cast as Mrs. Doggett (Barbara Patrick) is the real-life wife of Robert Patrick.
