The X-Files returned for another revived season on Wednesday, dropping a messy episode that would probably spell doom for the season if we didn’t know it picked up in future episodes. That is a fact to hold onto because this will likely be Gillian Anderson’s final season on the show barring some sort of act from a higher power. That would also mean the end of the show entirely for Chris Carter, explaining as much in a recent interview with Collider:
I wouldn’t. For me, The X-Files is Mulder and Scully. I think if it were without Scully, I wouldn’t do it. That’s not my X-Files.
