Finally, that Scully family reunion X-Files fans have been waiting for

Melinda McGraw as Melissa Scully

It’s been a long time coming, but finally the two Scully sisters have been reunited. Gillian Anderson of course first played Dana Scully on The X-Files 20 years ago (don’t you just hate that number?) but Melinda McGraw played her sister, Melissa.

Anyway, it’s been a long time coming, but 20 years later, the Scully sisters have been reunited onscreen on NBC’s Crisis, one of the main stars of which is Gillian Anderson. Last week, First Lady Melinda McGraw showed up but Anderson and McGraw had no screen time together. This week, however, we got a Scully family reunion:

No obvious X-Files references, but give it time…
