Originally telecast December 14, 1997, "Emily" was the conclusion of a two-part X-Files drama that began with the previous week's "Christmas Carol." Having discovered that she is the biological mother of three-year-old Emily (Lauren Diewold), Scully also learns that she and the girl have the same rare disease in common. With Mulder's help, Scully desperately seeks a cure for Emily's malady. But for reasons that remain unclear until the final few minutes of the episode, Emily's doctor refuses to release the girl's medical records. A deadly last-act showdown is inevitable -- but who will be the participants in that showdown? Both "Christmas Carol" and "Emily" were written by Vince Gilligan, John Shiban, and Frank Spotnitz.
