The X Factor In X Files?

X-Files creator Chris Carter has indicated he hopes to spark renewed interest in the longtime series next season with two primary plot devices -- the alien abduction of Fox Mulder, played by David Duchovny, and the pregnancy of Dana Scully, played by Gillian Anderson.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Carter gives no hint about who the father of Scully's baby might be. (The pregnancy was revealed in last season's final episode.) Asked whether it could be Mulder, he replies: "These are two people who have maintained a very powerful and respectful relationship.

But like all relationships between men and women, sometimes feelings are expressed in a physical way."
Anderson tells the magazine, "I have confidence and possibly inner knowledge, that the fans will get to see how Scully got pregnant -- before Christmas."
