We’re finally getting to see what’s on the other side of the sinkhole, otherwise known as the Upside Down of Roswell, New Mexico.
The sinkhole actually ended up being a pocket world built by Theo, Dallas’ father, so naturally, Dallas was instrumental in figuring out a potential way home, which included solving a complex riddle that Bonnie likened to a haiku.
It was pertinent that the clues left behind by his father were something only the “good guys” would be able to figure out in case Theo’s biggest fear came true and the bible got in the hands of the enemy, like Clyde or Jones.
And though Clyde might have the bible in his possession, he doesn’t have Nora’s console, which was critical to opening up the portal and allowing them to walk between worlds. Once Guerin figured out that he could cross over to the pocket hole safely, he made the choice to find Alex. “I’m not giving up,” was his declaration of love as he walked into the unknown without any guarantee of what the future would look like. Would they find him? Would they have food to survive? Would they even be able to get back considering the console’s power was dwindling? Nothing is certain, except for the love that Guerin and Alex have for each other that can even withstand being in two different realities.
Dallas also stayed behind to finish what his father couldn’t, while Bonnie, who has only ever felt at home on Earth, chose to stay back and help her friend find the love of his life. It’s proof that not everyone was brainwashed by Jones’ master plan, but as Tezca warned, Clyde was a true believer, which made him not dangerous. His mind wasn’t warped like hers was by Jones as his sole purpose for existing was getting back to Oasis.
As Guerin, Maria, and Kyle spent most of the time trying to figure out how to save their friends in the sinkhole, Isobel was busy reconnecting with Tezca and attempting to remind her that she was once a warrior woman and he mentor.
Tezca is obviously confliceted about her place and purpose as she lost core memories when she was brainwashed by Jones, but Isobel hoped to guide her back using a little desensitization therapy to help her overcome her greatest fears. Unfortunately, it also reminded Tezca of the unintentional damage she caused as her mind conjured up the images of all the people she killed.
There were plenty of heart-to-heart moments between the duo as Isobel called back to her weakened state when Noah took advantage of her and used her to kill three young women, and it all led to a pivotal reveal where Tezca acknowledged that Isobel was right and she needed to face the music. As she apologized to the children of the friends she betrayed, she revealed that she knew a lot more about Theo’s console, which can allegedly travel between galaxies and to different worlds, thus making it a valuable piece for Jone’s lackey’s to obtain. What happens when Clyde arrives with the star map? Can he trap everyone in the pocket reality permanently?
It’s going to take a lot to undo the damage Tezca caused, but at least she’s back on the right track. And as Isobel pointed out, she gets to decide who she wants to be today and every day in the future.
This is probably the most progress we’ve made on the whole Oasis/Ophiucus/console front, so I’m glad we’re finally getting somewhere that’s working in favor of our earthly friends.
And maybe Guerin won’t have to carry the whole #Malex ship solely on his back in the next episodes to come.
Kyle’s return to Roswell also made things slightly awkward with Isobel, but no one had time to think about it as there were more pressing matters. Still, it does seem like Isobel is finally coming around to the idea of a romantic relationship, while Kyle is holding out hope that she reaches back.
Then, there’s Liz, who is spiraling out of control and inhaling mist left and right in hopes of making some kind of positive change in the world.
Of course, it comes at the price of all of her personal relationships, specifically with Max and Rosa.
She pushed Max away by basically telling him that since he chose to give up his powers, she had to learn how to accomplish the miracles he previously could by using science. It’s not fair of her to hold his decision against him, but Liz believes she’s protecting the people she loves and coming from a place of love, so she doesn’t actually see how destructive her behavior and decisions are.
It takes a certain amount of distance to see when you’re being a problem. Rosa has acquired that distance ever since moving away from Roswell and working on her sobriety. She’s made great strides in honing in on her powers, yet Liz still treats her like she’s less than.
When Rosa calls her out for substance abuse because, as a recovered addict, she can pick up the signs, Liz is dismissive, arrogant, and condescending. I know the real Liz doesn’t mean any of it, and Rosa acknowledges it, too, but it’s still concerning enough that Rosa seeks out Max’s help. Eventually, they realize that once Liz sets her mind on something, there’s no talking her out of it, so Max reaches out to Isobel in hopes of restoring his powers.
I’ve gone from romanticizing Max and Liz to being quite annoyed by their relationship because it’s so toxic. If Max doesn’t want the powers, that’s his prerogative. There shouldn’t be this much turmoil in a relationship that’s meant to be loving, supportive, and nurturing. All that’s happened is that Liz became the absolute worst version of herself while Max was stripped of his choice. Maybe it’s for the best that she throws herself completely into the science as that’s proving to be her greatest love. She didn’t even want to tell Max the truth because she knew he wouldn’t understand or be supportive, which means that deep down she knows her behavior is wrong yet she wants to be right so badly.
As Max pointed out, some things are not possible, and other times, they’re actually unethical. The old Liz knew that; she understood and respected the boundaries. When she pushes back against Shivani, it was a good sign because there’s no way she could ever bring back Nicole from the dead permanently, but it also doesn’t seem like Liz is giving up just yet either. She’s simply refocusing her efforts toward other diseases, which is great, but where does she draw the line?
What did you think of the episode? Has Liz gone too far? Should Max attempt to get his powers back? Did Guerin make the right choice?
‘Roswell, New Mexico’ Star Jeanine Mason Shares Sweet Update From Wedding
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’ Actress Jeanine Mason Shares Engagement News
Jeanine Mason said ‘yes.’
The actress—best known for her role as Liz Ortecho on Roswell, New Mexico—shared 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)
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.
