Are we looking ahead to a season finale or a *series* finale?
It’s no secret that Gillian Anderson likely isn’t going to be returning to “The X-Files” for a twelfth season, which could spell the end of the series entirely. Whether or not it continues without her, the final two episodes of Season 11 promise to be bittersweet, as they’re very likely going to give us our final two doses of Mulder and Scully together.
We have gotten some GREAT Mulder/Scully moments in Season 11, along with some exceptional episodes that rank among the series’ best. The Lost Art of Forehead Sweat, which brilliantly explored a “post-truth” America, has been my personal favorite thus far; Rm9sbG93ZXJz, which pit Mulder & Scully up against technology, was also brilliant.
So what can we expect from the final two hours of Season 11? Well, Mulder and Scully are continuing the search for William, Scully’s son, while the Cigarette Smoking Man aims to deliver on his promise of spreading a deadly contagion across the globe. And will Mulder and Scully finally end up together… as in, *truly* together…?
First, in Nothing Lasts Forever, airing March 14…
“While investigating human organ theft, Mulder and Scully uncover a mysterious cult consumed with macabre rituals.”
And finally, in My Struggle IV, airing March 21…
“Mulder and Scully rush to find an on-the-run William while the Cigarette Smoking Man pushes forward with his ultimate plan.”
