March 6, 1996 marks 4 years from the dateline on the X-Files pilot. While in real time, we've only seen 3 years, I'm a stickler for timelines, so I'm sticking with the four year number for this story. I'm going with my own personal theory about the evolution of Mulder and Scully's relationship--which is that they're in love, they KNOW they're in love, but they can't do anything about it...yet.
Just a short one today to celebrate this special day in history - the day that Scully met Mulder.
This story is set in the turmoil of Season 3. Although I tend to go with the 1993 start date, March 6, 1993 is a Saturday. It's weird enough that Scully started her new assignment on a Friday and headed off to the plausible state of Oregon on a Saturday...
There's long been debate as to Pendrell's first name. It was believed to be either Alan, Sean or Daniel. In true X-Files tradition, the actor didn't know his name but called himself "Pete". I've always thought it was Sean, as given in The Official Companion, but I've since learned that "Sean" was based on a false premise, so who knows? I do like Sean, but Alan works for me too.
I do like this protective Mulder and Pendrell working together.
