The X-Files scored a touchdown of its own on Sunday, giving fans a sneak peek at the first scene of the season 10 finale.

The opening scene of “My Struggle II,” which was available only during halftime, flips the introduction to the season premiere on its head: Now it’s Scully’s turn to tell her story. With the help of some photos of the old days, Special Agent Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) recounts her journey from medical school to the X-Files — which, she says, “were worthy of Mulder’s investigations, and of mine.”

It’s no accident that much of her story is focused on Scully’s abduction and subsequent cancer battle; as she and Mulder learned in the premiere, the testing done on her may have left her with alien DNA. And this story has a killer twist ending: Scully morphs into an alien herself (as seen above). Are we seeing her worst fears play out, or is this a sign of things to come?

The X-Files airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET on Fox.
