The X-Files returned last night with an all-new episode that's sitting on my Tivo right now, mocking me for being at work today. This trailer was released yesterday featuring teases of last night's episode, as well as the next two. Coming Soon also brings us brief synopses of each episode, starting with last night's titled "The Lost Art of Forehead Sweat"...

“Exploring the idea of The Mandela Effect, in which large groups of people remember an alternate history, Mulder and Scully learn how The X-Files themselves may have originated.”

As I mentioned earlier, if you've watched this episode, have a heart and don't spoil it for me. I'll be watching it in about 7 hours. As many of you already know, it was written and directed by Darin Morgan, who did the greatest X-Files episode of them all, "Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose." Next week's episode, "Ghouli," sounds like it's got some surprises in store for those of you wondering whatever happened to William, Mulder and Scully's long lost son...

“When a pair of teenage girls attack one another, each believing the other to be a monster, Mulder and Scully find that their investigation could possibly lead back to their long-lost son, William.”

The final episode covered in this trailer airs February 7 and is titled "Kitten"...

“Skinner goes AWOL when his past comes back to haunt him. As Mulder and Scully try to track him down, their growing mistrust of him reaches its apex.”

Sounds like intrigue is afoot with Skinner, eh? Speaking of which, is anyone else secretly hoping for a Millennium reboot? Just me and Lance Henriksen, I guess. Oh well.
