Is it date night gone wrong or a terrifying technology takeover? FOX has released an extended look at Episode 7 "Rm9sbG93ZXJz," which airs on February 28th. Kristen Cloke and Shannon Hamblin wrote the episode, which finds Mulder and Scully caught in a "deadly game of cat and mouse" in a world where technology, automation, and artificial intelligence are on the rise.
Glen Morgan directed the episode, and at the FOX TCA in January he and David Duchovny shared that the story has very little dialog. There is a ton of action in just the short trailer and a lot to unpack. Watch the promo below and check out all the screen caps to hunt for clues.
