You'd have to live under a rock to not notice the chemistry between Mulder and Scully. FOX has shared a new video that looks at the development of that chemistry over the years and sneaks in a few glimpses of the ship we may see in Season 11. A few eagle-eyed Philes have noted that there may even be some beer involved in this fraternizing of agents in motel rooms. Check out the video for a walk down memory lane and hit the screen shots for some behind-the-scenes photos and all your analysis needs.
