[Warning: General spoilers ahead.]

The X-Files concludes its six-week run Monday night with a bookend to the premiere with “My Struggle II.” I’m so not ready for them to be done, so I’m going into this with the full expectation THERE WILL BE MORE EPISODES. Unfortunately, a screener was not made available ahead of time, so I can’t tease you with any snippets, but on the basis of the promo, it looks like Tad’s prognostications come to a head, Miller and Einstein are back, and so is Agent Monica Reyes (Annabeth Gish).

Here’s the formal logline for the episode: The investigations that Mulder and Scully previously began with conspiracy theorist and web-TV show host Tad O’Malley seem to have awakened powerful enemies. A widespread panic begins as people all over the country suddenly start falling gravely ill, and Scully must look within to try and find a cure. Meanwhile, Mulder confronts the man whom he believes to be behind it all, but another figure from Mulder and Scully’s past may prove to be the key to their salvation
