The X-Files is midway into its miniseries and fans cannot get enough of FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. The returning episodes focused on Mulder dealing with the internet and cellphones which is hilarious, as Scully pointed out: "The internet is not good for you, Mulder."
Fans have always wondered about Mulder and Scully's nature of relationship and the premiere episodes focused on their son together, William, and their decision to put him up for adoption. Scully was seen struggling to accept if giving up their son for adoption was a good decision. The last few episodes will inevitably focus on their son's fate.
Here is the a short recap of the miniseries: Episode 1 titled My Struggle was mostly about bringing Mulder and Scully back to the world of spooky cases, thanks to conspiracy theorist and web-TV show host Tad O'Malley. The episode featured a UFO crash site, an alien abductee and the return of the Cigarette-Smoking Man.
In episode 2 titled Founder's Mutation, the agents investigate the controversial medical practices of Dr Goldman, who performs tests on disfigured and genetically abnormal children, which reminded them of their own past. The episode finally gave fans some more insight about their son William and why they gave him up for adoption.
Episode 3 titled Mulder & Scully Meet The Were-Monster was another monster of the week case, which also involved Mulder questioning his life work and meeting a lizard that can transform into a human. This chapter was also about Mulder exploring the distance between wanting to believe and actually believing. His discussion with Rhys Darby, who played Were-Lizard Guy Mann, about human and its frivolous lifestyle sure gave Mulder something to think about.
Here are a few things you need to know about the upcoming episodes:
