For our next roundtable chat based on a key X-Files question…
How would Mulder & Scully celebrate New Year?
TONY: “Well this year might not be their best given a viral alien apocalypse has happened. It may even be worse than fighting zombies before a quick snog. Let’s assume though Mulder got better & the aliens buggered off – I reckon they’d probably just quietly get very drunk in one of Mulder’s basements and start going over old times.”
PAIGE: “By trying to work their way through the Times Square crowd so they could find … the son of Fluke!”
SARAH: “A bubble bath and a nicely chilled Champagne.”
TONY: “And Skinner?”
CARL: “I’m not sure Mulder is the type to go for a big celebration, so most likely they’d just stay at home and watch a film. They might have fun investigating some of the folklore around New Year in other countries. For instance, in ancient Thailand, guns were fired to frighten demons away. Also, in Chinese mythology there’s a beast called a Nian that comes out of hiding around New Year to attack children. Could make for a scary standalone investigation.”
