With Mulder apparently dying as Scully stared up at what seemed to be a UFO, Carter says the 10th season finale was, “…Quite unlike anything we’d done before. We’re not used to Scully looking up at UFOs. And we’re not used to looking at Mulder at death’s door, so those were the big questions that needed to be answered, and I think we have a really interesting, dramatic solution.”
