The X-Files is taking a page from Hitchcock’s playbook.
The sci-fi series’ return pulled Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully (Gillian Anderson) back to their work with FBI — and back into a life of interrogation attempts that go south for unexpected reasons. In this exclusive clip from Monday’s episode, the agents attempt to convince a boy’s mother to let them question him regarding a suicide at his job, only to be interrupted by a flock of birds settling in the yard. The boy’s mother takes notice.
“Bad things happen when the birds gather.”

She’s not kidding. When a piercing sound sends Mulder to his knees, Scully is done playing nice. Check out the clip to watch her fight for her partner like no time has passed.
The X-Files’ two-night premiere continues Monday at 8 p.m. ET on Fox.
