Episode Info

The ninth and final season of X-Files opened with part one of the two-part thriller "Nothing Important Happened Today." The title was lifted from the diary entry made by England's King George III on July 4, 1776 -- and in both cases, the statement is misinformed, to say the least. Picking up where season eight left off, Scully (Gillian Anderson) is still wondering why her newborn baby was not captured by aliens. The plot proper begins when Scully's fellow agent Doggett (Robert Patrick) investigates the death of an EPA official whose car was forced off a bridge by a strange woman (Lucy Lawless) whose life he had saved. All the loose plot strands are knotted together by an apparent conspiracy involving Assistant Director Follmer (Cary Elwes), which seems to have been concocted to discredit evidence gathered by the missing-in-action Mulder. Part one of "Nothing Important Happened Today" originally aired on November 11, 2001.
