X-Files - season 9 opener

Caught a commercial for the Nov. 2nd premiere of the X-Files, and it seems that this season's early shows will deal with Scully's baby (appeared to be kidnapped) being not so normal as we were led to believe by the end of last season.

Any speculations (beside the usual thread-crapping variety that this show should have ended 3 years ago)?

It's yours?

Maybe it's a hybrid. Like Spender's mom?

Looks like I have nothing to add

Considering our recent posts in another thread, I wonder if this is a bad thing?

The baby will most likely possess some bits of extra-terrestrial genes (from Sculley's abduction episode arc).

Yeah, Patman ... back to the baby ... sorry, my non-thread-crapping turned into thread-crapping anyway

Btw, I think the premiere is on the 4th (Sunday) which should be interesting as that 9pm timeslot is becoming highly contested again. I already watch 3 shows then; will there be room for a 4th, or will one of the others fade before the premiere?

I have no intelligent thoughts on what will happen, but it will be nice to see Elwes and Lawless on the show.

Scully's baby will be kidnapped and she'll go tell Mulder, you will be in the shower behind one of those "bumpy glass" shower doors. Mulder will then tell her what to do from the shower, and you won't recognize the voice because of all the running water. For the rest of the season, every time Scully needs advice, she'll get it from Mulder, who will be in the shower.

Just a prediction...

Yes since Chris Carter is making this up as he goes along, the sub-plot will become more convoluted and I'm sure he will think of something completely off the wall for Scully's baby.

As much as I love this show this definitely needs to be the last season.

Any considerations on how they will explain Mulder inexplicably disappearing off the face of the Earth after the season finale implied he and Scully will be beginning a cozy little family unit? I just can't imagine even X-FILES' razor-sharp and inspired writers being able to pull that off in a compelling and believable manner. Add my vote to the chorus--last season should have been the very end (not counting movies, of course). X-FILES is much too special of a show to have the life-force sucked out of it by a network that uses the show as a crutch since they can't come up with anything else interesting enough to watch...

Yeah it's a chant I've been doing since the end of last season.
I love this show and hope that it isn't total crap by now.

Carter needs to make it a great season....


then end it fast. I'd love to see it go out on a good note ( how long ago did that chance pass us by? ) but now we just need a few good shows to end on.

Carter needs to make it a great season, let it end, and do a movie if he wants. Then move on and develop something new. I'd hate to think that he's just a "one hit wonder."
