The X in the File is the eleventh episode of the fifth season of Bones.

Booth and Brennan go to New Mexico to investigate when a body is found in the desert near Roswell. Meanwhile, the relationship between Wendell and Angela comes to light.


Wendell and Angela reveal to Hodgins that they are together.  Hodgins is discomforted but pretends to be okay with it. Later, he seeks advice from Sweets, and tells him that "he grieves what he had" and that it would only take time to heal. Meanwhile, Booth and Brennan find a body that is questioned to be extraterrestrial.  They are forced to cooperate with "hillbillies and alien obsessed nerds" throughout the show. They also have to work in a hospital since they can't take the body back to the Jeffersonian.
