JUST BECAUSE THE DEADLINE HAS COME AND GONE, DOESN’T MEAN THE ALIEN INVASION HASN’T STARTED!
The last episode of The X-Files set an important date – December 22nd 2012. This was the day that the aliens would invade and colonised the planet. X-Philes waited patiently, hoping a new movie would address that end date, but sadly the deadline passed and no new movie was announced.
Pardon the expression…but it’s not the end of the world! If you expect X-Files to go all Independence Day, I think Chris Carter has a different invasion all together! I mean what is scarier – aliens coming through the front door, blasting and destroying everything in sight? Or aliens disguised as us, positioning themselves in key places of government and power, eliminating any threats and obstacles and leaving the back door open? I think you all know the answer to that.
Just as it was hinted in Fight the Future, I can imagine a viral outbreak and maybe a miracle cure that would immunise the population from the virus. Unknown to the human population, the so-called miracle cure is actually the black oil virus, infecting us. That sounds like an X-File to me.
