We've been excited for the Skinner-centric episode since it was first announced in October, and these new photos kick that excitement up to 11. FOX has shared promotional photos from Episode 6, titled "Kitten." The episode was written by Gabe Rotter and directed by Carol Banker and will air on February 7th. The story is described as "Skinner goes AWOL when his past comes back to haunt him. As Mulder and Scully try to track him down, their growing mistrust of him reaches its apex." 

In the photos we find Skinner, Mulder, and Scully, as well as a look at Haley Joel Osment as Davey James. The episode also guest stars Cory Rempel as young Walter Skinner, Jovan Nenadic as John "Kitten" James, Brendan Patrick Connor as Sherriff Mac Stenzler, and James Pickens Jr. as Alvin Kersh. Check out the gallery of photos below.

 

Actress Karin Konoval is already well known to observant X-Files fans. She played Madame Zelma in "Clyde Bruckman’s Final Repose" in Season 3, but her terrifying portrayal of Mrs. Peacock in Season 4’s “Home” put Karin high on the list of the best guest actors to be on the series.

Fans were delighted to learn that she would be returning for a role in Season 11, but would anything be able to top Mrs. Peacock? If you’ve seen “Plus One,” you know that answer is a resounding yes. Karin played not one, but four different characters in Chris Carter’s wild episode. The characters of Little Judy, Evil Judy, Chucky, and Evil Chucky are funny, startling, and downright scary.

After seeing the episode we wanted to know more about how these characters came to life and we know you did too. We put a call out on Twitter for fan questions and chose the best for Karin to answer. She shares how the roles came together and some wonderful behind-the-scenes moments as well.

FOX has shared new details about episode 6, where we finally learn more about Walter Skinner's background. The episode is called "Kitten" and is written by Gabe Rotter and directed by Carol Banker. The episode description says "Skinner goes AWOL when his past comes back to haunt him. As Mulder and Scully try to track him down, their growing mistrust of him reaches its apex." 

Guest stars of the episode include Haley Joel Osment as Davey James, Cory Rempel as young Walter Skinner, Jovan Nenadic as John "Kitten" James, Brendan Patrick Connor as Sherriff Mac Stenzler, and James Pickens Jr. as Alvin Kersh. 

"Kitten" will air on Wednesday, February 7th, at 8:00 pm ET and PT. 

 

David Duchovny was on Late Night with Seth Meyers on NBC to talk writing, music, and of course, The X-Files. Reflecting on 25 years of The X-Files, David talked about how he approaches Mulder a little differently now than he did in the beginning, and joked that he tries for “energetic decrepitude.” They talked about Mulder in the current political climate, and David still thinks Mulder is the worst FBI agent ever when it comes to solving cases. He may have also joked about a “surprise” reveal in the season finale…

They also discussed David’s upcoming music tour and shared that one of his songs will be featured in the episode “Plus One” on Wednesday. It won’t be David singing it, but keep an ear out for a more "punk" version of one of his songs.
