Tonight we kicked off the last two-part mythology arc of the original series with "Provenance." The mysterious spacecraft rubbings and artifiacts from Season 6 and 7 are back but instead of tormenting Mulder, this time they have an effect on baby William. Scully once again finds her son's life threatened and sends him off to the safety of the Lone Gunmen. Of course this being The X-Files, nothing is ever safe, especially a tiny baby.

This is a case that will really get under your skin. Doggett and Reyes investigate a series of brutal murders where men are skinned alive. If that isn't creepy enough, Scully makes a connection that suggests reincarnation which ends up tying Reyes to the case more deeply than she could have ever expected. Here are your best tweets!
You know things probably aren't going to end well when you wake up in Mexico with only one shoe and no idea who you are. That's where Agent Doggett finds himself in "John Doe." Scully, Skinner, and Reyes hunt for their missing friend and co-worker despite Kersh telling them to stand down. Doggett struggles to regain his memories but clearly remembers how to kick ass throughout the episode. And in the end we learn something about how even the most painful memories are worth the good ones. Here are your best tweets.
I'm not crying, you're crying! "TrustNo1" opens with arguably one of the most beautiful teasers of the series. A touching voiceover from Scully that explains her partnership with Mulder to their son, complete with an accompaniment of Tchaikovski's "Barcarolle," is guaranteed to make you wonder why it's raining on your face. Super soldiers and magnetite aside, the episode shows how much Mulder has been on Scully's mind, and that she misses him as much as the Rewatch Crew does. Here are your best tweets.
Season 9 takes a dip into the "comedic episode" pool with "Lord of the Flies." It starts off with a spoof called the "Dumbass Show" starring a young Aaron Paul and brings Glee's Jane Lynch into the mix as the tough-as-nails principal with a secret that "bugs" her. We meet Dr. Rocky Bronzino who continues the XF tradition of strange entomologists. And leave it to the Rewatch Crew to find pain even in what's supposed to be a light episode. In a misguided flirting attempt Rocky tells Scully "I've never had a partner before." She responds "I have." The crew found so many examples of that great partnership I may need to go find another drink. Here are your best tweets!
