The X-Files - Season 11 Finale - Post Mortem Interviews



THR Interview

In the premonition finale, fans were upset about Monica’s betrayal. In this finale, she seemed to be genuinely trying to help Scully and did attempt to not run over Skinner. Why was it important for you to have a bit of redemption for her?

It was done subtly. So much of [what was seen] last season was done as Scully’s vision. In fact, she never really met Monica Reyes. This points out that Scully’s ability to see, however disconnected and exactly, the future [isn’t exact].

The season 10 finale featured a close-up of Scully’s eye that indicated the scenes that followed were her premonition of a possible future. This season, there was another close-up of her eye midway through the episode. Was that stylistic choice vs. what followed being another premonition?

[Laughs.] That’s why they call them cliffhangers. I can’t imagine the show won’t come back in some shape or form. Certainly you’re going to see an answer to the question that’s posed.


EW Interview

So are we to assume that the father of Scully’s new baby is definitely Mulder?

Yes. But we also have to remember that Scully has alien DNA so there are questions atop that certainty.

Gillian has said she’s done with the show. You’ve said, “Not so fast.” What would the show look like if Fox ordered another season without her?

I honestly don’t know right now. There’s so much that’s up in the air right now with Fox’s sale to Disney, and with Gillian’s announcement — which I respect — and with more X-File’s stories to be told…right now it’s anyone’s guess.
