Passing through the door, the partners find themselves in a library. In a series of odd twists and turns, they become separated, each trapped in a version of the library. It is here that Mulder meets Maurice The Ghost, who convinces Mulder to shoot Scully. In her own parallel library, Scully meets Lydia The Ghost, who convinces Scully to shoot Mulder. When the two agents meet back up, they follow through on the ghosts’ mischievous plan and fire their weapons on each other. As they lay gasping on the staircase landing, they realize that they are unharmed and that it was only some kind of mind trick played on them by the ghosts.
Safely ensconced back in their homes, the duo agree that the events of the evening never happened.
