‘The X-Files’ Mid-season Trailer Provides Hope

Hope is that thing with feathers….

Damn you, Chris Carter. Damn you. You’ve done it again. One second I’m here, happy in my I DON’T CARE ABOUT THIS SHOW ANYMORE bubble, and then there’s this trailer and I’m 13 again and I’m screaming because Mulder and Scully are kissing.

I thought I was over this, I really, really did.

But hey – if we can, somehow, get a decent end to this story, please, please, please, please give it to us. It’s been twenty five fucking years. Haven’t we earned it by now? Haven’t Mulder and Scully?

THE ANSWER IS YES. And when I mean decent end, I mean the non-platonic kind, CC. The kind that has sex. All the sex. In every room of the house. Heck, even outside. The sex you didn’t allow them to have for all these years. The sex fanfic writers have been trying to provide for way too long.

I got lost there for a moment, didn’t I? Well, you can’t exactly blame me. I’ve been a fan of this show for almost all of my life and boy, has that hurt.

GIVE ME SOME HAPPINESS.

So, yes, here’s the trailer that maybe, perhaps, promises something good. I wish I could trust it. But you know what one of the taglines to this show is, don’t you? Oh yes, it’s TRUST NO ONE.

Of course, there’s also: Deceive Inveigle ObfuscateAll Lies Lead to the Truth and I Want to Believe, I Want to Lie, among others, so who the hell knows?

In the meantime, here’s the trailer. Enjoy it. Don’t. I don’t even know at this point. All I know is I can’t stay away.

The X-Files airs Wednesdays at 8/7c on FOX.
