Back in 2001, when "This Is Not Happening" aired, Philes had to wait six whole weeks to see "DeadAlive". Luckily for the rewatch, we're not into the type of sadomasochism favored by 1013, so we only waited a day. That didn't really help with the pain though.
Check out the best tweets from tonight's #XFRewatchDeadAlive. They can be summed up by feelings, full capitalization, and sad photos of Scully's face, but you'll probably want to take a look at them yourself.
Everybody still standing? I don't think you ever forget your first viewing of "This is Not Happening." How many of us were screaming "No!" right along with Scully at the end of the episde? It's intense, emotional, terrifying, heartbreaking and made all the more powerful by wonderful performances from all the actors, not to mention Mark Snow's score. "This is Not Happening" was the highest rated episode of Season 8, and the Rewatch Crew reminds us why.

So has it rained on your face yet today? I'm not sure it's possible to get through "Per Manum" without drowning in a sea of feels. Between the flashbacks and Scully's joy over the baby being turned over something terrifying, you may need extra hugs while watching. X-Files Science Adviser Anne Simon joined in with the rewatch crew for extra insight.

There's something down in the tunnels of the Boston subway system, but Scully won't be going down to investigate because she's secretly gestating an alien baby that Doggett doesn't know about yet. "Medusa" was a big hit tonight; Scully took charge while wearing a turtleneck and leather and Doggett electrocuted some bioluminescent flesh-eating microorganisms.
It was like "Darkness Falls" in a tunnel meets "Pusher", but without the playboy channel. Check out the hilarious best tweets from #XFRewatchMedusa!
Between the holiday and the frenzy over the leaked footage of The X-Files: Re-Opened special, today was a slower day for the rewatch. However, "The Gift" was a very appropriately titled episode for the day. Here's to hoping you all got lots of awesome X-Files themed gifts this holiday season.
