Scully and Mulder: They go together like peanut butter and jelly, right? They may be highly complicated and super dysfunctional peanut butter and jelly, but they are a delicious sandwich nonetheless.
So when the news broke that the two would no longer be a hot-and-heavy item when the new The X-Files revival debuts on Fox on Jan. 24, fans’ hearts, hopes and dreams all collectively broke at the same time.
But Gillian Anderson just gave us a little optimism by opening the door on a possible romance between the two beloved characters somewhere in the future, after all.
“Part of what is enticing about the duo is the fact that they are against each other,” Anderson said with a laugh to E! News. “At the same time they are for each other… It’s just too domestic a scenario to have it being that they live in the same house, and they go home every night to the same house while they’re doing The X-Files during the day. It leaves a much more intriguing and interesting dynamic to have us still maybe be in love and have that spark going, that question mark.
“I think at the end, I think at the very end they absolutely belong together, but it’s a long road,” Anderson added.
Noah Calhoun pretty much sums up our sentiments about a Scully-Mulder reunion perfectly.
And it still isn’t over. I mean, just look at these action shots from an upcoming episode. The look of love is definitely still there.
