was it S06E18 "Milagro"??

I do recall this particular episode, because I've always wondered why John Hawkes, an excellent intense actor who co-starred with Jennifer Lawrence in Winter's Bone never truly had a great lead role, and remembered him in X-Files.

From my recollection, while the episode wasn't about 'The Powers That Be' spying on Scully, but was about a nextdoor neighbor played by Hawkes spying on her:
