FOX aired a new “X-Files” teaser Monday (Oct. 19) during “Gotham” and one important new facet made its debut.

At roughly the 16-second mark, there’s an uber-creepy little girl, sitting in what could be some kind of facility (based on the stark walls), brushing her hair filled with ribbons and bows. She has a weird head and eyes, which might indicate some kind of alien life form?

Since other moments in the teaser show a woman giving birth to an alien baby, that might not be far off.

The rest of the 30-second promo features a lot of footage fans have seen before, plus familiar voiceovers by Mulder (David Duchovny). But what is up with the little girl?

“The X-Files” premieres Jan. 24, 2016.
