Mulder, pick up the gosh darned phone! In E! News' exclusive sneak peek at the upcoming season finale of The X-Files, Mulder (David Duchovny) has seen better days. He's beaten and bruised and worst of all, ignoring Scully (Gillian Anderson). The gall!
"My Struggle II" begins with a Scully introduction, like Mulder's in the season premiere, and picks up the threads placed in the first episode of the event series. What's the deal with alien DNA? And why is Mulder not answering Scully's calls? Check out the preview below.
Now that you've watched, here's another question: What's Mulder doing in South Carolina?
This may be the finale, but it's not the end of the road for Mudler and Scully...if series creator Chris Carter has his way.
"I don't think it's it for Mulder and Scully, but I have to say, there's no guarantee that we're coming back," Carter told E! News about the finale. "So, while I see Mulder and Scully and stories down the way, we end up on a very big cliff."
Carter wrote and directed the episode that features the returns of Joel McHale, Lauren Ambrose, Robbie Amell, Annabeth Gish and William B. Davis. In the episode, Tad O'Malley returns as panic grips the nation. People are suddenly falling gravely ill and Scully has to search for the cure...from within.
Everybody involved has expressed interest in returning for more episodes. Now, time will tell. The fans certainly want to believe The X-Files will return again.
The X-Files finale airs Monday, Feb. 22 at 8 p.m. on Fox.
