Roswell, New Mexico is better in its third season than it’s ever been before.

Despite the action picking up steam, everything seems much less chaotic. The pacing is good, there are some truly great moments between the characters, and everyone is involved in a way that is sensical and not intimidating. 

It’s also chock full of information. Turns out, Max, Michael, and Isobel barely knew themselves before Jones’s arrival… or at least that’s what he wanted them to think. 

Max knew Jones was dangerous, but he seemingly still walked into his trap. In a way, they all did. 

I can’t help but think that Jones is manipulating them all and getting them to do exactly what he wants. 

He has a plan, and he’s using them to get to it. 

And it works because he has three aliens standing in front of him who have no idea where they come from but are craving information about themselves. 

He can sell them anything, and they’d likely believe it. 

And there’s no one to tell them that he’s lying. 

Is Isobel really an empath? I believe it solely based on how she’s always gravitated to others and could connect with them on deeper levels (just like her mother), but who benefits from her channeling those powers?

Is it only in her best interest, or is it in Jones’s best interest?

The same goes for Michael? He took what Jones told him about being the son of a dictator and ran with it. It was incredibly heartbreaking to see Michael spiral the way that he did.

Not only was he content with dying, but he also kept rationalizing it and believing that he deserved it. As Alex put it, he was looking for proof that he was worthless his whole life, and now that he found it, he was clinging to it. 

This moment specifically made me think that Jones was lying to them for his own selfish reasons. It’s almost as if he’s using their weaknesses against them. 

Michael has always been broken, but the realization that he’s an heir of a monster turned him into a self-destructive, self-loathing shell of a human, and that’s just not acceptable by any means. Why can’t he see the greatness in himself that everyone around him sees?

If he looks past all of the genocidal murders his father committed, I’m sure there’s a way to use those invincible abilities for good.

However, the moral of the story is that Jones finessed his way out of the cage, and it’s going to be trouble for everyone. 

Will he try to impersonate Max for as long as he can? Will they catch on right away?

Clearly, he’s a lot stronger than any of them are. 

Much of the seasons’ storyline revolves around the mystery of Maria’s visions. Who is murdered? While the obvious answer seems to be Guerin, I don’t think that’s accurate at all.

Also, as Alex told him in one of the best interactions on the series to date, he would never help cover up Guerin’s murder. 

“I would burn the entire world down first,” he told him in such an intense and stripped-down interaction. 

The chemistry between them, even when they’re just friends, is out of this world. We know their love is cosmic, but I was not ready. 

I’m shipping them even harder than I was previously. There’s a lot more that they need to talk about, but acknowledging that the feelings are still there is a good start. 

Emotional attachment aside, there are a lot of references to fire. Michael doesn’t feel any pain when he literally lights his hand on fire, Alex would burn the world down, and there are forest fires ripping through Roswell, New Mexico, which is the ash that Maria sees in her vision. 

What does it all mean?

It seems that everything is somehow connected this season, which does make it easier to keep up with the plots. 

Michael gave Alex the stone that allegedly amplified their powers and allowed Isobel to see auras, which came in handy when Alex was trying to crack open the machine. 

This is one of the storylines I’m having some trouble believing. 

Alex decided on a whim that he would join Dark Sky, a dangerous organization that he was warned about, simply because he wanted answers. 

And since then, he hasn’t questioned what they are asking him to do at all. In fact, he believes his new boss and shows him that he has a stone that unlocks the the Lockhart Machine 

Why? 

What if they want it for nefarious purposes? There’s no way it’s a good sign that a stone given to you by your vulnerable alien ex-boyfriend unlocks a machine that a secret organization wants to get its hands on. No way. 

Ramos knows a lot more than he’s letting on, and getting these much-desired answers could come at a price.

If we didn’t see Alex in Maria’s vision already, I would’ve been convinced that he would be the one to die.

Since this is Roswell, it was obvious the machine was going to be connected to the aliens, but it was an interesting choice to have it play music like a jukebox.

It was even more intriguing when the radio also activated in Kyle’s office and sent a message from his father.

What could this mean?

If everyone would just talk through all their discoveries, I believe we could all get on the same page just for a moment. 

Maybe it opens on every full moon? Why not throw some werewolves into the mix?

Kyle has been looking for meaning, and man, I don’t blame him. He’s holding this group together at the seams with a thread and a needle, but at what point does he just give up?

He’s fighting battles that aren’t his to fight, sacrificing everything for them in the process, and serving as everyone’s go-to therapist. It’s a lot for one person. 

At least Isobel acknowledged that Kyle that they’ve been using and abusing him for his resources and expertise. 

Kyle deserves better!

I’m glad he finally stood up to both Liz and Max because absolutely no one wants to be in the middle of their little lover’s quarrel. 

No one, not even Rosa, believed Liz when she said things with Max were over for good. That girl can talk herself into anything, and she was in denial about her feelings for Max. 

She buried herslef into her work and hid behind her anger because it was easier than acknowledging that she played a role in the demise of their relationship as well. 

It’s cause-and-effect. Liz didn’t want to stop studying alien DNA despite Max’s requests, and thus, he burned down the lab with all of her evidence. 

Their decisions were troubling, but if they wanted to move forward, they had to take personal responsibility. 

Rosa and Kyle were key in helping Liz confront the role she played in destroying her relationship, and she finally apologized to Max. It almost seemed like they were going to fall into old habits once again, but Max pushed her away. 

I’m not really interested in rehashing the back-and-forth between them, but I guess it made sense as he was deteriorating and being drawn to Jones and didn’t want her hurt or involved. 

Even after everything, Max still protects Liz at all costs. That’s true love. 

Also, Max is still dying, and no amount of love from Liz can save him. Though, maybe she’ll find something in her charcoal samples that will help heal him. Or, you know, they could utilize Jones once they find him eventually. 

Liz questioned who Rosa had been hanging out with all this time, and she conveniently changed the subject as left out everything there was to know about Wyatt Long. 

Of course, Long doesn’t have any of his memories at the moment so he’s actually a decent guy, but he’s definitely going to play a role in Maria’s vision. 

As Jordan and the other town bullies (they were giving off some Proud Boys vibes) began to pick a fight with Bret and the ashes began to fall, Maria realizes her vision was manifesting. They were running out of time and they had no idea how to stop it or who to save. 

I’m not sure how this storyline fits into everything unless the victim is Wyatt Long. Maybe turning over a new leaf gets him killed?

Or, since the connection leads to Guerin, it might be Sanders. He was mentioned twice when Maria noted the song that was being hummed and the sunflowers on the grave. 

It may seem obvious but no one even went to check on him. I couldn’t help but think that maybe Guerin was told about his powers because he’s the one that’s going to start the fire and kill an innocent person, which leads them to cover it up. Or maybe Max’s clone kills someone and they have to lie otherwise it would fall on him?

Gregory continues to express a romantic interest in Maria, but nothing on this show is ever truly innocent. All of the relationships and connections have been cosmic, so I’m thinking that maybe there’s a reason they are so drawn to each other. Could he be involved in the mystery?

Also, could the stones be used to heal Rosa and Maria? If they amplify powers, I can’t see why they wouldn’t help them.

The stone seems like something made for Maria if I’m being honest.

There was a lot to digest in the episode but in the best possible way. 

Roswell, New Mexico is finally embracing its supernatural roots. It’s as if this season hit the reboot button and has become what we’ve wanted these past two seasons —  fun mysteries and interstellar connections. Everyone is understanding the assignment!

‘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. 

What did you think of the Roswell, New Mexico Series Finale?
