Since there was no new episode this week, this week’s X-Files column will be a discussion forum. The topic: is Scully a reincarnation of the Virgin Mary?

In season three, Clyde Bruckman revealed that Scully would never die. Then, in the season six episode Tithonis, it appeared as though Scully would achieve that immortality. It has also been revealed that Scully’s ova were taken from her during her abduction, leaving her sterile. Yet, she has recently become pregnant.

This brings us to the topic of today’s discussion: is Scully the immortal reincarnation of the Virgin Mary? The impregnation of a sterile person can be viewed as a sort of immaculate conception, and she does seem to be immortal… What do you think? Do you hope this sort of revelation is pursued on the show? Do you hope it isn’t? Post your opinion below!
