I did forget Ringgate! A sub-gate, if you will. There were set photos of Scully with something around her neck that looked like it very well could be a wedding ring on a chain – as if, perhaps, Scully had been married to someone but was now separated from them and didn’t want to wear the ring on her hand anymore but still had a lot of love for that person and didn’t want to completely stop wearing it either. 🤔🤔🤔
Interestingly…or tellingly…back when IWTB spoilers were coming out, there was ALSO a time when we saw a blurry set photo and speculated that it looked like someone (I don’t remember who – Mulder?) was wearing a wedding ring (on his finger this time). Unfortunately, that also was not the case. Le sigh.(This fandom also went through a period, prior to S10, when there was a lot of derision over the idea of Mulder and Scully ever getting married. I guess some folks felt it would be out of character for them. In the face of the M/S breakup spoiler, however, it very quickly became a pretty damn appealing alternative.)You forgot the ringate :), myassbrokethefall.tumblr.com
The History of Ringgate
Ringgate started with the release of a promotional clip for the episode Home Again.
Fans tried to enhance the picture from the trailer, but the result seem to have been still inclusive:
I downloaded the HD promo from YouTube and played it back frame-by-frame in several media players and took some screenshots from VLC player, which seemed like the clearest image. I included Mulder’s left hand for reference, as well.
I want to believe there’s a ring but I’m not convinced. I think it may just be grainy video, or some digital “noise,” which was more prominent in QuickTIme and DIVX player.Sorry to burst anyone’s bubble…#RingGate Update https://baybscully.tumblr.com/, Oct 27th, 2015
I see two necklaces but I’m just not buying the wedding ring theory. It doesn’t look like a ring to me. /:fluke--woman.tumblr.com, Oct 19th, 2015
Anonymous asked: Is ring gate confirmed yet in fandom? If not and anyone need more proof, go check Gillian's photo tweeted on 18th Aug. U can see its on her left hand if turn up the brightness of the photo.https://perplexistan.tumblr.com, October 28th 2015
The airing of the third episode of the 10th season title Home Again debunked the theory:
"What we initially thought might have been a ring around Scully’s neck in promo shots was actually the quarter."https://tmblr.co/ZAS6Uj21SHjrF
