Could Mulder and Scully have taken a trip down to the courthouse — and not to book a suspect? 

Rumors about the state of The X-Files‘ main duo have been gaining speed since star David Duchovny (Fox Mulder) suggested in recent interviews that Mulder and longtime partner Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) were husband and wife. Series creator Chris Carter addressed those rumors at Saturday’s EW Fest, where he took the stage for a panel with writer-producers Glen Morgan and Darin Morgan. When asked about Duchovny’s comments, Carter expressed surprise.

“They were together but never married, so that was news to me,” said Carter, reminding fans where the series’ second movie, 2008’s The X-Files: I Want to Believe, left its two main characters. But is it a definite denial? 

To quote EW’s own Jeff Jensen, who moderated the panel, “I think there’s a story here.”

Check out the video above to gauge Carter’s answer for yourself.
