Years later, Hosteen returned when he once again was called to translate something - this time, it was alien writing from an artifact found on the Ivory Coast.
Hosteen was later taken to a New Mexico hospital, due to an unexplained illness, with his doctors fearing the worst. Hosteen died after spending two weeks in a coma, but before he did, Hosteen's spirit appeared to Scully several times in her apartment, imploring her to find and save her missing partner, before Syndicate scientists could remove and study the immunity he has to the alien virus inside him, using it in their plans for surviving Colonization. Hosteen subtlely guided her to Mulder's location, encouraging a more spiritual route; Hosteen and Scully prayed for Mulder. The next morning, he vanished, having died the night before.
