Cr: Robert Falconer/FOX Advertisement LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment *** SPOILER ALERT *** The X-Files just revealed the biggest and what’s likely the most controversial twist in the show’s 25-year history — and fans are already having very strong reactions online (read some of the tweets below).Wednesday night’s season 11 premiere (major spoilers ahead) explained that Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) and Dana Scully’s (Gillian Anderson) absent teenage son is not the product of their on-again, off-again romance (as had been assumed by the characters and fans even though the show has always been vague about when the child was conceived). Instead, the evil Cigarette Smoking Man (William B. Davis) abducted Scully long ago and impregnated her with alien-assisted science.The move explains a cryptic and suggestive scene from 2000’s season 7 episode “En Ami” (French for “as a friend”). Scully took a road trip with CSM, who told her, “I confess I’ve always had a particular affection for you. I assure you my intentions are honorable … My affection for you is special…” After she falls asleep in the car, CSM is shown putting on black leather gloves. Later, Scully wakes up in a cabin in a silk gown. “You drugged me!” she accuses. “How the hell did I get out of my clothes and into bed? … I don’t know what you’re up to …” In the season 7 finale, Scully learns she’s pregnant.
