Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Scully (Gillian Anderson) goes off on her own to act as a consulting investigator in a mysterious murder that has occurred in remote Juah County, UT. Just after phoning in to her partner, Doggett (Robert Patrick), Scully finds herself trapped in a tiny village, where the locals oblige her to care for another stranger in town, Hank Gulatarski (David Barry Gray). Little do either Scully or Hank suspect that the village harbors a large religious cult, which is preparing to offer up a human host for a hideous sluglike monster that has been "firmly identified" as the Second Coming. "Roadrunners" made its first American TV appearance on November 26, 2000.
