***MAJOR SPOILERS*** DO NOT READ IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN S11.
And the Ultimate Betrayal.
The monologue From Season 8, Ep. 20, Essence
“We call it the miracle of life, conception. A union of perfect opposites, essence transforming into existence. An act without which mankind would not exist, and humanity cease to exist. Or is this just nostalgia now? An act of biology commandeered by modern science and technology. Godlike, we extract, implant, inseminate, and we clone. But has our ingenuity rendered the miracle into a simple trick? In the artifice of replicating life can we become the creator? Then what of the soul? Can it too be replicated? Does it live in this matter we call DNA? Or is its placement the opposite of artifice, capable only by God? How did this child come to be? What set its heart beating? Is it the product of a union? Or the work of a divine hand, an unanswered prayer, a true miracle? Or is it a wonder of technology, the intervention of other hands? What do I tell this child about to be born? What do I tell Scully? What do I tell myself?”
For over a decade and half Devious and Mean Spirited Chris Carter had us Believe and Fooled into thinking William was the product of the Union between our beloved couple, Mulder and Scully. Well It Wasn’t!!! It was Revealed During the Final Season that CSM SOB is the biological Father of William. Yes, Scully is the biological mother and she was allegedly Medically raped and impregnated by CSM to create the first Super Human child, and to know what an Utter Disaster William turned out to be makes matters even worse. The Fact is that a lot if US Fans felt Betrayed, Cheated, like the rug was pulled from under us. How do you explain now that Mulder and Scully in their 50’s will have their First Biological child after all the Hell she has been through??????! I don’t mind the pregnancy, nor the age (albeit mid 50’s for me is pretty late). Nonetheless, it all felt so rushed, as if they couldn’t think of a better ending. Had Scully become pregnant in S10 I would have been happy because we might have had a chance to see her as a mother, but now that Gillian Anderson made it clear she’s Not coming back there is no point in rejoicing. We deserved a better ending, Mulder & Scully deserved a better ending most of all.
This article Explains in brutal detail How delusioned Most fans are. How Deeply disappointed we feel (Most of all the Mistreatment of such an iconic female character like Scully is Appalling) especially now that Gillian is not coming back.
