When a mother is accused of killing her unborn child Mulder and Scully begin to suspect a more sinister force is at work.

 

Story

Wayne and Laura Weinsider are just like any other couple who want to start a family. However, when the ultrasound shows possible deformities in the baby that Laura is carrying, it is Wayne who becomes visibly upset. That night, Laura has a nightmare that a demon has come to steal her baby. When she wakes, she realizes the nightmare has come true and that her unborn baby has been taken from her.

The town's sheriff, who happens to be Laura's brother, brings the case to Agent Spender who round-files it to the shredder. Mulder manages to salvage the report and begins his own investigation. His primary suspect is Wayne, but Scully thinks that Laura self-aborted and has her arrested. Meantime, Mulder follows Wayne and ultimately uncovers that Wayne has been living a dual life. His second wife, Betsy, lives on the other side of town and Mulder fears for her safety. As Mulder and Scully race to save Betsy, a car skids to a stop in the middle of the road. It's Betsy, who exits the car bleeding, exclaiming that Wayne took her baby

. Moving on to Betsy's house, Mulder and Scully find Wayne furiously digging in the backyard. The agents think Wayne is burying Betsy's unborn baby, but before Wayne can tell them otherwise, the sheriff arrives and shoots Wayne down. In reality Wayne was digging up unborn normal babies that Betsy had buried there. Being a demon himself, a normal baby was all Wayne ever wanted. Betsy, being even more evil than he, had always wanted just the opposite -- a demon baby. As Betsy drives into the sunset with her newborn baby, we see that her work was successful.
