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.
