Though the exclusive photo you see here may make it seem like Mulder and Scully’s next case involves a time-traveling and an alternate universe, we can assure you that’s not the case.
Because even though The X-Files‘ agents appear to be meeting younger versions of themselves, they’re merely working with colleagues — Einstein (played by Six Feet Under‘s Lauren Ambrose) and Miller (The Tomorrow People‘s Robbie Amell) who, granted, are very reminiscent of the central pair — on a terrorism investigation.
From the episode’s official synopsis: Miller and Einstein “push Mulder and Scully to examine their own beliefs as Scully seeks answers from neuroscience and Mulder from mysticism” (aka the more things change…).
Psst: We’ve seen the hour — which airs Monday at 8/7c on Fox — and longtime fans are going to want to be on the lookout for some very familiar faces.
Give the photo above a good going-over, then hit the comments: Can you believe the revival’s nearly over?!
