The Roswell, New Mexico Season 3 finale was an intense two-part event from beginning to end. 

The showdown between Jones and Max came to a head, with one being destroyed for good. 

Check out the 5 biggest moments from the finale!

 

1. Shiri Appleby returns to Roswell 

We’ll start with this one because it was the most shocking reveal. During the final moments of the episode, a naked and dazed woman walks into a home in Careyes, Mexico and claims to be one of the people “in the sky,” which the homeowner relays to a woman hiding in the shadows. The woman, who bears the same tattoo as Max Evans, claims she’s Liz Ortecho. “Liz Ortecho was a student of mine,” Allie exclaims as she emerges from the dark. Turns out, Allie is played by WB Roswell actress Shiri Appleby! What a treat to fans of the original!

Our only guess is that the woman is someone Jones called through the Lockhart Machine!

 

2. Love is in the Air for (Mostly) Everyone

There were a lot of deeply profound and passionate speeches from all the couples we ship on “I Ain’t Going Out Like That” and “Never Let You Go.” It’s hard to pinpoint our favorite, but nearly all of them got a happy ending after Jones was defeated in the final battle (we think? We hope.)! 

Max and Liz finally got their kiss while promising each other that they would go see the ocean. Throughout this ordeal where Jones offered her everything she wanted, she realized that she could have Max and the science. To be quite honest, I feel like there isn’t any science for Liz without Max. I’m glad these two are finally on the same page and choosing honesty. 

Alex almost lost Guerin, who stood up to his father, Jones, on several occasions. When it was all said and done, they both defeated their bad dads and came out on top. Then, they did the one thing they never could in front of Papa Manes — they held hands. Damn, that felt good! Michael and Alex are finally in a healthy place in their relationship because they are no longer letting anything from their past define or confine them. 

Deluca and Manes got to spend some time together, which was nice after all the psychic visions she’s been having. 

Sadly, Kyle is still longing for the girl. He finally admitted that he had feelings for Isobel when Maria interrogated him. While operating on Dallas at Deep Sky, he and Isobel even had a bonding moment where she could sense his energy was all over the place. However, he never got to tell her how he felt because their moment was interrupted by Anatsa. Here’s the thing — I like both of these potential suitors for Isobel. She has a great thing going with Anatsa, but there’s undeniable chemistry between her and Kyle. I’m looking forward to the show exploring that in the future. 

Even Rosalinda got a happy ending after Kyle got her a ticket to New York so she could start over fresh and live her best life.

3. The Triad + Friends Defeat Jones 

The science was murky on this one, and there was a moment where it really seemed like separating Jones and Max was going to come at the cost of Max losing his powers for good, but eventually, Heath saved the day by creating the serum using Dallas’ equation. Take that Genoryx.

While Jones aimed to get inside everyone’s minds and prey on their insecurities to divide them, they ended up banding together and conquering him using their sheer force. There’s strength in numbers. They could no longer shy away from the parts they were scared of. 

The final switcheroo was dangerous because it relied on Liz picking the right Max. It’s not a unique twist by any means, but it worked well in the context of the storyline. Jones got all too good at pretending to be Max, which made it all the more difficult to deduce which one was the real Max. However, she figured it out by asking him what song played on the jukebox during their first date knowing that the real Max couldn’t remember the title. 

Choosing the right Max during such a tense moment proved that Liz truly is his soulmate and knows him better than anyone! 

 

4. Dallas Gets Stabbed

Poor Dallas. One minute he’s preaching to a congregation, the next minute he’s trapped in a mindscape with some evil dictator. What a wild trip it’s been for him. His whole belief system was questioned, he found out the truth about his family in a very overwhelming way, and eventually got pieces of glowing shrapnel lodge in his throat and forced to undergo an emergency alien surgery. It’s surprising he made it out of this in such good spirits. Nothing can break him because he reads Reddit threads, duh! 

But it’s exciting to see him as part of the triad. He has a lot to learn about being an alien, so I’m sure his parents are happy he found his pack.

 

5. Maria’s Future

Maria became much more vital to the storyline this season, specifically as a source of support for Isobel and Rosa. She may have been Liz’s best friend when the series started out, but she has a pretty badass girl gang going with Isobel and Rosa nowadays. Her visions carried the series, she learned how much her family contributed to all things alien, and still, she never shied away from her responsibilities of stopping Jones or protecting her friends. She’s a gem. 

And after sacrificing her bracelet to piece together Isobel’s mother’s sword, she’s now going to have to rely on the science from Jones’s “intergalactic ass” to prevent her brain from turning to mush and going to the way of her mother’s, who she found out is deteriorating rapidly. Why do I feel like next season will involve some form of saving Maria from her own brain?

‘Roswell, New Mexico’ Star Jeanine Mason Shares Sweet Update From Wedding

Roswell, New Mexico Season Premiere Review Steal My Sunshine Season 4 Episode 1

Jeanine Mason is officially off the market!

The Roswell, New Mexico star, who announced her engagement back in March 2023, shared sweet wedding photos from her recent nuptials.

The So You Think You Can Dance champion is said to have married husband Nicholas late last year. 

She shared two intimate photos on Instagram, one of the duo kissing after they seemingly exchanged “I do’s” as their guests looked on, along with a second shot of the two cozying up to each other on the subway.

“So many thank yous to come. But for now, just one to this unbelievable man. I love you husband,” the Upload actress captioned the post, which you can see right here.

Brides got more of the scoop on the newlyweds and their big day, noting that she and Nicholas met on a dating app and later exhaling vows on the stoop of their New York City home, which is also where he proposed. 

“We thought, how fun would it be to bring our favorite people along for a weekend in our lives here in New York City and to fill all our neighborhood spots with our families and friends,” she told the outlet. “We imagined, ‘What would our ideal weekend be with our favorite people?’ and then, ‘How do we want to be married?’ We really threw tradition or answering to any standard out the window.”

With that said, they told guests to go all out with their outfits, telling them to “do the MOST.” 

Nicholas serves a major in the Army Reserves following years of active duty, so he opted for his military dress uniform.

They also used the day as an opportunity to hire as many artists as they possibly could, including a violinist to perform during the ceremony, local artists for illustrations, and florists for flowers and arches.

As for the public transit choice—that’s how everyone got to the reception! 

“We always knew we’d take the subway to the reception but this was the perfect way to start the party,” she said. 

Since Mason is Cuban, there was also plenty of music and dancing on a “large dance floor,” and she even danced the salsa with her dad as it’s a “huge part of our culture and the way we celebrate. I think we made the Cubans proud.”

Her co-stars immediately jumped into the comment section to share their congratulations—warming the hearts of The CW fans all around—as Michael Vlamis wrote “VLAMIS GOT MARRIED!!!!” Tyler Blackburn shared a series of heart emojis, Heather Hemmens wrote “So beautiful! Congrats you two!” and Lily Cowles added, “So gorgeous! Felicitaciones mi amor.”

Congrats to the happy couple—we wish you all the best on this new journey!

Roswell, New Mexico Season Premiere Review Steal My Sunshine Season 4 Episode 1

Jeanine Mason said ‘yes.’

The actress—best known for her role as Liz Ortecho on Roswell, New Mexicoshared the engagement news with her Instagram fans on March 9. 

“Always knew I’d find you in New York, fiancé. What a wild thing this love!” she captioned a stunning photo of herself kissing the now-fiancé in a subway station. The couple’s reflection can be seen in the train whizzing by. 

Plenty of her fellow cast members descended onto the comments section to congratulate her on the big moment.

Omg!!! Congrats you angel!” Tyler Blackburn, who played Alex Manes, wrote, to which his onscreen love interest, Michael Vlamis, who played Michael Guerin, responded, “remember when we got married?” Vlamis also commented with a handful of heart emojis. 

Amber Midthunder, who played Mason’s onscreen sister, Rosa, added, “Beauty on beauty on beauty ♥️✨ so happy for you sister,” while her onscreen bestie, Maria DeLuca, played by Heather Hemmens, noted, “Omggggg!!! Yaaaay congrats babe!!”

Other Hollywood stars chimed in, with Abbott Elementary star William Tyler James writing, “Congrats Jeanine!” as Florence Pugh wrote, “WHAAAAAAAT OH MY GAAAAAAD. Congratulations my darling girl. X.”

Of course, her fiancé’s identity was a hot topic in the comment section as Mason lives a relatively private life. There was speculation that she was dating her onscreen love interest and co-star Nathan Parsons (Max Evans), however, neither ever confirmed the romance aside from Parson’s once admitting that he had a girlfriend and the internet running with the theory that it was Mason. 

But now, the plot thickens because the man in the photo definitely bares a resemblance to Parsons, with many fans questioning if it’s really him. 

One seemed fairly certain that aside from looks, the man in the photo even has a similar posture and hairline. 

“Look at the hands in the pockets posture that is a Nathan thing and the side hair line looks familiar. I think it might be him. And if he hasn’t said anything it’s probably because he wants to keep his personal life private. So happy for her tho. 😊” the fan wrote. 

Parsons did not comment on the post, nor has he weighed in on the engagement, while Mason seemingly did not tag her beau on purpose. 

Regardless of who the mystery suitor is, we’re just thrilled for Mason and wish her all the best in the wedding planning stages!

Roswell, New Mexico Series Finale Review – How’s It Going to Be (4×13)

Roswell, New Mexico Series Finale Review How's It Going to Be Season 4 Episode 13

Lives hanging in the balance and time running out—it’s a classic Roswell predicament for the finale episode ever.

On Roswell, New Mexico Season 4 Episode 13, the Pod Squad outwitted Clyde once and for all, but it wasn’t the whole focus of the episode. 

Defeating the season’s biggest villain was important, yes, but it was equally, if not more important, to give these beloved characters a proper conclusion. We’ve come on this supernatural journey with them for four seasons, and science and powers aside, it’s always been about their evolution. And at the core of that evolution is love. Love always trumps hate, and when Clyde was eliminated, a new day began with new possibilities and potential. 

And there was so much love everywhere, even if the outcome didn’t look exactly as some envisioned it. 

Let’s get Clyde out of the way first. The series finale kicked off with Isobel and Max coming back to Roswell from the pocket dimension only to find their biggest foe holding their friends hostage.

They quickly broke free from his grasp thanks to Rosa, whose abilities at tuning frequencies came in handy. They also got her kidnapped, unfortunately, as Clyde used the proteins in her blood to redraw the star map so that he could set course for Oasis. Shivani would’ve never helped him if she knew that’s what he was doing, so he lied and told her that he brought Rosa so that they could isolate the proteins necessary to save her daughter. Honestly, the only feeling I can muster up for Shivani is sympathy. The woman was so far gone. As Allie (Shiri Appleby)informed Liz, her wife didn’t have a blind spot when it came to Nicole, she was simply blind. All logic went out the window as she attempted to resurrect her daughter. It was heartbreaking to see such an intelligent and accomplished woman fall prey to manipulating tactics, but she just couldn’t let go of the desire to save her daughter. She wanted to believe, so she did. Thankfully, in the end, she seemed to come to peace with the fact that Nicole was gone, and she even got her wife back!

Allie played an integral role in the episode as she helped Liz and Kyle recreate the mark of Ophiucus that would prevent Clyde from going back to the home planet. And she made it stick this time so he could never get it removed. She also created a solution to help cure Liz and Shivani from the effects of the mist. Getting in on the alien science wasn’t her only contribution as she also continued to be a great mentor for Liz in her time of need. I loved that the OG Roswell got to play a role in the spinoff, and it was the cherry on top of the sundae to see the original Liz in the alien headband one last time.

The true Bonnie and Clyde — Liz and Max — teamed up brilliantly to take down Clyde. He thought he had won and was even giving a victory speech before realizing that, much like Jones, he couldn’t one-up the great Liz Ortecho. One last time, the science won! And he disintegrated right then and there while watching Oasis slip through his tiny little aspiring-dictator fingers. 

And then, the real fun began. 

First up, a proper wedding for Alex and Michael Guerin. Yes, Alex finally shed the Manes name because “he was never much of a Manes man.” These two deserved the happy ending; they worked like hell for it. 

And I almost lost it when Guerin called Alex his husband while returning the favor and dedicating a song to him.

There were so many incredible moments: Guerin’s nervous telekinetic energy breaking things prior to the wedding, Walt Sanders giving Guerin a final send-off with a speech about finding great love amid everything and a trinket from his mother, and Alex and Guerin getting “the hell out of there”—a town that was never ready for their epic love story. 

We also saw the progression of a few more couples, including Kyle and Isobel. Their love story blossomed earlier in the season, so there wasn’t much here aside from the duo finding comfort in each other as one of the few staying behind in Roswell to find happiness. Bonnie also ended up flying solo, but I find comfort in knowing she’s going to have a permanent spot at Maria’s bar honing in on all the earthly things she’s come to love.

There was also Maria and Dallas, who officiated the wedding, Maria realized Dallas made her feel “safe,” which is why she could astral project to him, and it was all code for “I have feelings for you.” For those on Team Gregory, Maria briefly touched on it by explaining that he just wasn’t her person in the end.

Maria and Dallas were a long time coming, and truthfully, I could watch a spinoff about them as a couple. Their chemistry is electric, but I also agree that before Dallas jumps into any relationship, he has to figure out who he is; he owes it to himself to understand where he came from. And those answers are waiting on Oasis, a planet that Maria confirmed is crumbling and on the edge of imploding if it isn’t saved by the Savior, Max Evans. 

Prior to her death in the pocket dimension, Tezca shared a crucial memory with Isobel that revealed Max is the only person capable of saving Oasis from destruction by using the blue flame to restore the energy in the crystals. He basically didn’t have a choice, which was devastating news for his love story with Liz, but also not entirely unexpected. Since day one, Max’s destiny was always tied to his home planet in some way, and try as he might to rewrite what’s meant to be by finding his other half in Liz, you can’t rewrite what’s written in the stars. 

Upon seeing the memory, and confirming with Maria that there is still a planet to save, Max knew in his heart what he had to do. 

Liz always knew it too, hence the “other foot” finally dropping. She may be his destiny on planet Earth, and the final scene revealed that she would be there for him when he got back, but he had another destiny to fulfill before they could get their happily ever after. 

And there’s nothing more earthly than a diamond to seal the deal. It’s a reflection of Max’s human side. He’s as human as he is alien at this point, so it’s important that the show didn’t forget about all the progress he’s made simply because of the Savior storyline. 

 The rock also looked damn good on Liz’s finger, plus, it’s nice to see supportive couples on television. Max would never keep Liz from doing her best work, and Liz couldn’t keep him from completing a mission eight decades in the making. They could never hold each other back, especially as his ancestors were relying on him to get the job done. It’s why I loved the science analogy about love; it was so fitting for all the different stages of their romance. They’ve gone through a rollercoaster of emotions, but it’s been worth it to see them come out on this side completely secure in themselves and in their love. They know that the distance is no match for their feelings, which is why they can plan for a future together even when things seem so uncertain. 

It’s unclear how long Max will be gone (it’s not like she can text him in another universe), but at least they’ve destroyed the imminent threat and now have a connection to the home planet. That’s all anyone has ever wanted. And once Max gets Oasis up and running, there’s no stopping Michael from visiting in the future and finally getting to see where he came from. To be honest, I thought Liz was going to jump through the portal with Max for a minute there since she really has nothing holding her back in Roswell. Her father is running his business, and Rosa is continuing on her path of self-discovery in New York. My guess is that there are some rules about interdimensional travel, however, and Liz wouldn’t have survived the trip since she’s not an alien. 

 The “ending” to Max and Liz’s romance is enough to satisfy fans while leaving the door open to a potential spinoff, possibly even on a network that would do a better job of showing Roswell, New Mexico the love that it deserves. I’m convinced more people would’ve watched the show if they promoted it better.  

But that’s neither here nor there because as it stands, the directors, writers, cast and crew gave fans the most fitting ending possible and love stories that can be felt across the universe.
