Halleloo! This week’s installment of ‘The X-Files‘, entitled “Mulder and Scully Meet The Were-Monster” features the return of Tyler Labine and Nicole Parker as the unnamed stoners who popped up in two episodes from the 1996 season of the show. (Parker may be better known as “Redheaded Chick.” Also fun fact, she was Venus De Milo on ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation’.)
The episode is written and directed by Darin Morgan.
Here is the episode synopsis:
When a dead body is found in the woods, Mulder and Scully are called in to investigate whether it was an animal attack, a serial killer or just maybe a strange creature as described by eyewitnesses.
Meanwhile, Mulder is able to confront some of his own demons about feeling disillusioned with his life’s work.

Guest starring in “Mulder And Scully Meet The Were-Monster” is D.J. Pierce, who is better known as drag queen Shangela Laquifa Wadley (or just Shangela for short) from ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ who plays the part of Annabelle. Shangela calls appearing on this venerable sci fi show an “honor” and stated:
“I remember watching the show as a teenager. I never imagined I’d one day be working on it. It was fun playing Annabelle. I think writers are taking more chances with characters on TV, and that means more opportunities for diverse actors. To that I say ’Halleloo!’”
Shangela may not say “Halleloo” to what happens to her character on the show, judging by this image:
And we thought having to “Shashay away” was rough!
Shangela has previously appeared on ‘The Mentalist’, ‘Bones’, ‘Community’, ‘Glee’, ‘2 Broke Girls’ and ‘The Bold and the Beautiful’.
Also appearing in a cameo role is Alex Diakun, who plays “Manager” and who previously appeared on ‘The X-Files’ as the Curator in the 1995 episode “Humbug,” Tarot Dealer in “Clyde Bruckman’s Final Repose” (also 1995) and Doctor Fingers in “Jose Chung’s From Outer Space” (1996). Not so coincidentally, all three of these episodes were also written by Darin Morgan.
‘The X-Files’ airs on FOX on Sunday nights at 8pm EST.
