We’ll admit that we have not been jumping up and down regarding Chris Carter episodes of The X-Files really ever since the show came back for season 10 back in 2016. Hopefully, The X-Files season 11 episode 3 changes that.
On the surface, it does feel like there is a little bit of potential for that to happen. It’s got an interesting title in “Plus One,” and the X-Files season 11 episode 3 synopsis that CarterMatt has for you below offers up some interesting details:
A spate of deaths, in which the victims were plagued by their own doppelgangers, lead Mulder and Scully to a pair of twins playing a dangerous game in the all-new “Plus One” episode of THE X-FILES airing Wednesday, Jan. 17 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. (XF-1103).
The first thing that we like about this is fairly easy to pinpoint: This marks one of the first opportunities that we’re getting on the upcoming season to have a completely standalone case. This is, at least per our own estimation, where The X-Files really shines. While we know that the Mulder – Scully relationship is fantastic and some of the deeper mythology can be interesting, these are the sort of stories that have us in love with The X-Files and make us eager time and time again to come back for more. Murder by doppelganger is a strange concept, but it does make it rather interesting for Mulder and Scully given the motives here are questionable at best.
Also, this seems like this is one of those sort of cases where Scully’s sense of skepticism could pay off. It doesn’t really seem as though there is anything altogether supernatural happening here beyond just a pair of messed-up twins acting out in a world they really shouldn’t be a part of in any form. We’ll certainly see how this story develops over time but for now, we are intrigued.
