Season 7, Episode 04:

"I am he that liveth and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, amen; And have the keys of hell and of death."
— Relevation 1:18
Written by Vince Gilligan & Frank Spotnitz
Directed by Thomas J. Wright

Mulder: The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. These four men bring with them war, pestilence, famine and death.
Frank: So that all the dead of the earth will arise - Armageddon. It must begin with the dawn of the millennium... or not at all. That's what they believe. The man you're looking for - your necromancer - he exhumed these men in accordance with their wishes.

As the year 2000 approaches, the agents seek out ex Millennium Group member Frank Black (Lance Henriksen) when some of his former associates turn into the walking dead.


  • Fake First Kiss: Mulder and Scully share a celebratory kiss at 12 midnight on New Year's. It has no visible effect on their relationship in subsequent episodes.
  • Fully Absorbed Finale: For Millennium (1996). It was not well received by fans, as it resolved none of the original series' arc and was mainly focused on Mulder and Scully.
  • Held Gaze: Mulder and Scully after the kiss.
  • New Year's Kiss: Mulder and Scully share their first kiss as the clock strikes midnight on New Year's.
  • Renegade Splinter Faction: The zombies are former FBI agents who apparently decided that the best way to fulfill the Millennium Group's prophecies was to carry them out themselves.
  • Room Full of Zombies: There's a basement full of zombies.

Mulder: The world didn't end.
Scully: No, it didn't.
