Monica Reyes joined the cast of The X-Files in season 8 for four episodes and was present in all episodes of season 9.
Fandom reactions to this new character were mixed, but overall better than towards the addition of Agent John Doggett in season eight.
Both Monica Reyes and John Doggett were not accepted by quite a few of the early fans. However, there still were quite a few fanfics written using these characters, especially Doggett/Reyes romance stories, which was fueled by the hints at the characters' past history. Reyes was also frequently paired with Dana Scully.
