Synopsis by Hal Erickson
With Scully in the hospital undergoing tests related to her mysterious pregnancy, her partner, Doggett (Robert Patrick), joins forces with Assistant Director Skinner (Mitch Pileggi) to thwart the evil plans of Manson-like cult leader Anthony Tipet (Keith Szarabajka). They'd better get a move on: two FBI agents and 20 cult members have already fallen victim to the Pittsburgh-based villain. Making matters worse is the fact that Tipet, with the help of a special hallucinogen, is able to invade his victims' dreams and kill them while they sleep (shades of A Nightmare on Elm Street). "Via Negativa" first hit the airwaves on December 17, 2000.
