81. The X-Files Origins: Devil’s Advocate

Play episode

THE X-CAST continues with host Tony Black going in depth on Jonathan Maberry’s 2017 The X-Files: Origins prequel book, ‘Devil’s Advocate’. In the spring of 1979, fifteen-year-old Dana Scully has bigger problems than being the new girl in school. Dana has always had dreams. Sometimes they’ve even come true. Until now, she tried to write this off as coincidence. But ever since her father’s military career moved the family across the country to Craiger, Maryland, the dreams have been more like visions. Vivid, disturbing, and haunted by a shadowy figure who may be an angel . . . or the devil. When a classmate who recently died in a car accident appears before Dana, her wounds look anything but accidental. Compelled by a force she can’t name, Dana uncovers even more suspicious deaths?and must face the danger­ous knowledge that evil is real. But when a betrayal of faith makes her question everything, she begins to put her faith in being a skeptic. Joined by writer Lauren Forry, Tony talks about the story, character, and themes of the book and how it connects to the TV show. Lauren also answers the 5 Questions of X and discusses her own contribution to The X-Files via the Secret Agendas anthology story, ‘Stryzga’.
