Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny in the "Nothing Lasts Forever"

Some of the questions surrounding The X-Files' core mythology will be addressed soon, as the show is nearing the conclusion of this second 10-episode installment—just not this week.

Though Season 11 Episode 9, titled "Nothing Lasts Forever," is technically the penultimate episode of the season—one week until the finale!—this will be a standalone hour. But don't worry, it'll still have plenty to unpack as Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) investigate a human organ theft, only to uncover a shocking and secretive cult.

We also hear the episode features some interesting conversations between the two about their own relationship, which you won't want to miss!

In an exclusive clip from the ep, we see the partners checking in on this new case and running into a little resistance from the local authorities. That only lasts for a moment, however, as Mulder manages to prove his abilities in a matter of seconds.
