Fans of Gillian Anderson, David Duchovny, and the X-Files were ecstatic at David and Gillian’s reunion during the X-Files 20th Anniversary panel at Comic-Con. And then their heads almost combusted when David and Gillian proceeded to flirt with each other for the duration of the panel.
When asked about what the reunion’s been like, David simply says, “It’s nice to see the people that worked on the show. It’s been twenty years.” He also adds that the enduring popularity of the show is a credit the chemistry and the fact that it’s ‘always sensual’. Is it just us, or are these two just not capable of keeping innuendo out of their answers?
Anyway, sources who were present at Comic-Con tell us that the chemistry between Gillian and David was very, very strong, and the two were almost always touching. We can see that from the interviews as well, and it really does seem like they can’t keep away from each other. Obviously, we’ve documented Gillian and David’s relationship pretty extensively at CDL, and we’ve come to the conclusion that it’s very likely that there’s something going on between them. And even if it wasn’t, I could imagine that they barely managed to stay away from each other during Comic-Con.
Look, I know this sounds like crazy fan fiction, but it’s not [in a small voice, I think]. Fans have spotted Gillian and David together at his apartment in New York multiple times, and sure, you could argue that they’re just hanging out. But the evidence and circumstances are too much to ignore.
What do you guys think? Are David and Gillian together? Are they hooking up? Are they trying their best to hide their attraction? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
