X-Files Revival Mulder Scully Einstein Miller Photo

X-Files Photo: See Mulder, Scully and New Agents Together for the First Time

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?!

    You guys have seen the episode? How is it?

  2. “and longtime fans are going to want to be on the lookout for some very familiar faces” The Lone Gunmen, obviously.This will either support the claim the comics are official canon that was made when they began publication, or disprove it as the TV revival invalidates them.

    TV Line, cut it out with the autoplay video ads. So annoying, especially if one is at work, ya know?

  4. Jerry says:

    Is this like a parody episode or joke or something? The way the agents look, the Miller and Einstein names, the fact that she is a scientist and he is a believer.. I just am so confused about what they ar trying to do here.

  5. Blackwood says:

    Sounds like the classic “trip into someone’s brain” episode, allowing Mulder to have a hullicinogenic experience as he tries to find the bomber’s secrets. Could be fun.

  6. Shaun says:

    Tomorrow People for Robbie?He was on The Flash recently.

    • Annie says:

      He’s also a terrible actor, I don’t get why he keeps getting big roles. He seems nice enough, but come on, there must be a whole whack of young attractive white guys who can actually act

    Mulder might be able to talk to the lone gunman since they’re dead, like he was able to talk to Krycek and Mr. X.

    That’s something that has it really been explored yet, why Mulder has this ability which obviously was the result of the seasons 6 season 7 cliffhanger

    • Blackwood says:

      He hasn’t got supernatural powers, it was just a device used for the series finale. Think of it as a metaphor.

      • xweaponx says:

        Seems like he had that ability even in the beginning of “The Truth”, Krycek opening doors for him, mr X handing him a piece of paper. They should have expounded on this last year, especially in “Babylon”, which I thought was a great episode despite how people reacted to it. Carter was making a valid statement with that episode and it got unfairly panned. But it was aired during a frenzy of the worst Islamic-hate trends that ever swept this country. If the show where aired this year it might fare better

  9. Leigh says:

    It’s probably the worst ep of the whole 6.

  10. Definitely the episode I’m looking forward to the least of the 6. It would be nice to see The Gunmen. Does that mean that Reyes is slated for the finale?

  11. Freda Whaley says:

    We need more Skinner. And more than six shows.

    I remember when Bones did an episode where Brennan and Booth went to England and met two people who were basically just like them only British. It was so absurd — that’s when I stopped watching Bones. The writing had already gotten ridiculous, and that was the last straw. I hope this isn’t like that.
