XF upcoming comics #6-7: what's going on here? "•The first part of a brand new "Mytharc" connecting X-Files conspiracies old and new begins here! • A new man enters Scully’s life seeking her affections! • Executive produced by The X-Files creator Chris Carter!"
Carter had no time to cover the backstory of what happened between the 2002 supersoldiers and the 2016 Elites conspiracy, and Harris gets to cover that? A love interest for Scully?! The return of Tad, or somebody new? Intrigued, but puzzled.

This is an unprecedented confession from a key person in the making of the series and its mythology -- an acknowledgement that goes beyond self-congratulation and into critical review of one's own work. Spotnitz is careful not to say anything over-critical about Carter or any of his colleagues, but the point is made.

Morgan&Wong vs Carter: a look at the similarities between the ends of XFS10 and Millennium S2. The Apocalypse is a recurring theme in all of Carter's works, interesting that XF reached the point where it actually depicted the impending doom it was teasing for so long (albeit in a less-then-satisfactory overall episode...). ...
