"The X-Files" miniseries captured what the "X-Files" of old was known for. The show can scare you, make you laugh, think, and leave you on the edge of your seat. Each of the six episodes did its best to highlight Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) during serious and funny moments, like hunting down a Were-Monster or reflecting on their son.
While fans everywhere wait to hear if there will be yet another new chapter following the finale that ended with a cliffhanger, here are the top moments from all six episodes of "The X-Files" miniseries:
1. William Fills Mulder And Scully With Regret
Mulder and Scully's son William was a big part of the ongoing storyline in the miniseries. While dealing with experiments being done to children, Scully gets reminded of the son she gave away. In one of the most dramatic scenes of the series, Scully recalls how she has missed most of William's life and wonders if Mulder still thinks about him.
2. Mulder Meets The Were-Monster
Episode 3, "Mulder & Scully Meet the Were-Monster," was arguably the best episode of the miniseries. The episode was filled with scares, laughs and got Mulder to believe again. The moment where Mulder meets the Were-Monster, who is named Guy (Rhys Darby), is one of the highlights of the episode. Guy tells Mulder an elaborate story how he has transitioned from a monster into an everyday person. Mulder later sees the transformation happen before Guy goes off into hibernation.
3. Scully's Sex Scene
When news broke that there would be a sex scene in the miniseries, many were expecting one to finally happen between Mulder and Scully. However, the scene turned out to be a part of Guy the Were-Monster's fantasy in episode 3. The two went into a closet in a cell phone store, where Scully told him what an animal he was. When he told Mulder of this encounter, he immediately knew Guy was lying, which Guy admitted to.
4. The Trashman
While the Were-Monster was more funny than scary, the Trashman (Tim Armstrong) was a terrifying creature who punished those cruel to the homeless. The Trashman tore apart his victims throughout episode 4 and Mulder and Scully were never able to find him. His first kill set the tone for the episode, where he was shown tearing off a man's arms and then casually walking back to his garbage truck.
5. The Introduction Of Agents Miller And Einstein
Two of the best new characters to be introduced were Agents Miller (Robbie Ambros) and Einstein (Lauren Ambrose), who are basically younger versions of Scully and Mulder. From the second they're introduced you can tell just how similar the pairs are. Miller and Einstein would eventually go a long way in helping out Mulder and Scully in episodes 5 and 6.
6. Mulder On Mushrooms
To try to communicate with a comatose suicide bomber, Mulder convinces Agent Einstein (Lauren Ambrose) to prescribe him a medical mushroom. He claims the mushroom might be able to allow him to speak to the terrorist on another spiritual level. What ensues is one of the funniest scenes of the miniseries. Fans watch Mulder trip as he dances around a Texas country bar and hangs out with the Lone Gunmen.
7. The Relationship Between Mulder And Scully Starts To Come Back Together
At the end of episode 5, Mulder and Scully walked hand in hand after they stopped a terrorist bombing from happening. Scully talks about how maybe they should "open up their hearts and truly listen," as Mulder hears trumpets. As the two hold each other, "Ho Hey" by the Lumineers plays in a scene that showed the two possibly reconnecting on a romantic level.
8. The Cigarette Smoking Man v. Mulder
Over 14 years since their last encounter, Mulder discovers the Cigarette Smoking Man is still alive and has caused a sickness known as the Spartan virus to spread around the world. Mulder tries to get the Cigarette Smoking Man to stop what's done but he tells him that it's too late. While Mulder was left clinging to life in the finale, the Cigarette Smoking Man was still alive, which leaves open the door for the two to come face-to-face once again.
9. The Final Scene
While Mulder sits in Miller's car extremely sick, Miller and Scully look to the sky where an ARV hovers above them with it's light shining down on them. It's unclear who's in the alien vehicle, but the final seconds of the finale featured an intense zoom in to Scully's eye, leaving the fate of everyone's favorite characters and the world in limbo.
