The Ongoing Story of Scully's Faith

This week, The X-Files is featured in the new issue of Entertainment Weekly. (The article does include a few spoilers for the new episodes, if you're trying to avoid that kind of thing.)

One tidbit in the article that particularly caught my attention is Chris Carter's mention that the fourth episode, written by him, will address Scully's faith:
Carter says that episode 4 will deal with one of Scully’s most distinctive character features: her religious faith, a source of conflict with Mulder. (Mulder can believe in many things, but he has serious doubts about God.)
This episode should air sometime in February (possible the 8th). It will be interesting to see where Carter takes her faith journey, since Scully clearly had some angst in I Want to Believe.

The Countdown Begins...

FOX has announced the airdate for the new X-Files episodes. The first episode will air on Sunday, January 24, at 10:00 ET / 7:00 PT after the NFC championship game. The next episode will be the following night, Monday, January 25, at 8:00 (ET/PT), and the remaining four episodes will air in the Monday time slot.

Filming began this last week in Vancouver, and Twitter is all abuzz with photos, (mis?)information, and general excitement. X-Files News has a handy countdown if you want to know how many days (hours, minutes, and seconds) you have left to rewatch the series. 

Pull up a seat, turn down the lights, and get ready for some new episodes!
