Mulder travels to Los Angeles, currently in the midst of wildfire season, to investigate a murder in line with a series of killings involving blood draining and smashed mirrors. He finds a blood bank night watchman drinking some of the goods and, in true vampire fashion, the suspect dies shortly after he is exposed to sunlight in confinement. Before he croaks, however, the man says two people are working with him (The Father and The Unholy Spirit) and they consume blood as a way of sustaining youth.
Mulder meets a seductive woman, Kristen Kilar, and believes she is trying to protect herself due to the presence of a blood-filled loaf of bread in her apartment. She and Mulder become romantically involved. John returns, saying he is able to do so thanks to his vampirism, and urges Kilar to kill Mulder to become like them. Instead, Kilar tells Mulder to flee. After a confrontation with the remaining vampires, Mulder is able to get away while Kilar blows up her house, killing herself and destroying the vampires.
Justina Vail, who plays The Unholy Spirit, played Dr. Olga Vukavitch on Seven Days. Perrey Reeves, who plays Kristen Kilar, also plays Mrs. Ari on Entourage.
