Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) and Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) are going to reunite soon on Fox's "The X-Files." It's been revealed that the two former FBI partners will no longer be in a relationship with one another. However, the new miniseries could feature a sex scene involving Scully. Will it be with Mulder?
At the 2016 TCA Winter Press Tour, Anderson reportedly asked all who were in attendance, "How was my sex scene?"Jason Lynch of Adweek tweeted about the moment, saying the actress was talking about episode 3 of the miniseries.

Lynch added that episode 3, which is titled "Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Monster," is both "hilarious" and "fantastic." He also responded to a fan and suggested that just because there's a sex scene involving Scully, it doesn't mean that the other person is Mulder.
Duchovny and Anderson both discussed their on-screen relationship and the chemistry between the two of them at TCA. E! Online reports that Duchovny made a joke that could suggest something else between the two of them might happen on the show. Anderson added to that, saying they "have a little biology."
"Now we have chemistry and history, we're going to try to get biology," Duchovny said.
The sexual tension between Scully and Mulder has been a hot topic this week. On Monday's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" the late-night host joked in a parody video that Mulder and Scully "should have sex." The two then proceeded to hook up on a desk while the 90s hit "Only Wanna Be With You" by Hootie and the Blowfish played.
"It's been like 23 years, everybody knows," Kimmel told the agents in the video.
