The X-Files officially re-opened Sunday, January 24th with much applause. Monday, January 25th prepare for yet another episode! This time, with a surprising twist.
The next episode will be titled "Founder's Mutation". Fox just released a first look into the episode:
After, obsessively, reviewing the trailer I have created my own fan theory that may or may not be true (but the truth is out there and will be revealed 8PM on FOX). Gibson Praise IS RETURNING.... kind of.
In 1998, Gibson Praise was first introduced as a chess mastermind. He was targeted by the Syndicate because of a special ability he possessed -- which was his ability to read minds because he carried alien DNA.
According to the episode description for Monday's episode, Mulder and Scully investigate a:
...laboratory where extreme genetic experimentation has been going on for decades, breeding subjects who possess unexpected and dangerous powers...
Whether or not my theory is true, the resemblance is certainly uncanny. We'll find out soon enough!
