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 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. It was not well received by fans, as it resolved none of the original series' arc and was mainly focused on Mulder and Scully.
  • 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.

How well does it match the trope?
