Scully and Mulder head off to Georgia when there are reports of people disappearing around a local lake. Scully isn't sure why they're getting involved until she sees a highway sign advertising the local version of the Loch Ness monster called Big Blue. The latest victim is a Forest Service biologist, giving the FBI jurisdiction, but Scully thinks it's all nonsense. The killings continue and Mulder thinks there is something very real out there. Scully comes around when she is affected by the 'monster' in a very personal way.
