Join Us Tonight: We're Gonna Live Tweet X-Files Season 11, Episode 4

It's that time again, X-philes — a live tweet of tonight's season 11, episode 4 of The X-Files on Fox. After a super-lacking and enraging episode 1, a pretty solid episode two, and an AMAZING episode 3, our hopes are finally back up to a fairly optimistic level.

E4, titled 'The Lost Art Of Forehead Sweat', is written and directed by longtime X-Files team member Darin Morgan. Exploring "the idea of The Mandela Effect," in which large groups of people remember an alternate history, Mulder and Scully find out how the X-Files themselves may really have originated.

In a recent interview with TVInsider, Darin Morgan spoke a bit about what inspired him to write the episode. Namely, the election of the USA's 45th President:

"This one, to be honest, was a reaction to Trump becoming president. That was the starting point. I was saying, 'What story can I come up with to deal with my feelings on that?' And somewhere along those lines, I stumbled across the Mandela Effect online.

They seemed to work; it's disturbing those work together. The combination of those two things, they had an element of forgetting or lying."
