With only two episodes left this season, Roswell, New Mexico Season 4 Episode 11 truly felt like the beginning of the end. 

Much progress was made in terms of relationships and the dark triad’s—now consisting solely of Clyde—return to Ophiacus. 

The episode kicked off with Liz’s loved ones staging a little intervention. As she scribbled equations rather than specials on the diner board, it was understandable that everyone was worried about the alien mist she’s been huffing. Liz was acting like a true addict, so her friends decided to step in before it was too late. 

Initially, Liz didn’t see much of a problem with her drug habit because she didn’t see a choice; since Max gave up his powers, she needed to find a way to save them all. She was burdened by the responsibility, and as the only true alien scientist around, she needed to find a solution. Max, however, didn’t want her to risk it all for him. They were in this together, so naturally, they would find a way out of it. They always did. And if I’ve learned anything from my supernatural friends is that there’s always a loophole. It’s unfortunate that it took Liz so long to see that and acknowledge it. 

It did seem as though they even broke through to her, but when Liz and Rosa went upstairs to pack a bag, Liz revealed she had some mist stashed away, and before you knew it, she was gone. Rosa had no memory of what happened, so everyone simply assumed that Liz relapsed when, in reality, she was kidnapped by Clyde because she was the key to getting him back home. 

We never knew why Liz was so necessary to the plan in the past, but it soon became evident that she was the only scientist capable of creating the alien formula necessary to untether Clyde from Jones. I love that through it all, Liz managed to inform Clyde that he was just a pawn in Jones’ game. He was a manipulator who found the weakest and loneliest link and exploited it. It’s also what makes Clyde so dangerous because his loyalty knows no bounds Jones saved him and gave him a home, which is all that ever mattered to Clyde. 

While it seems as though Liz is following through on Clyde’s request since she has to save Vanessa, she was actually concocting her own plan to simultaneously escape and thwart Clyde’s abilities. From my understanding, if she successfully unbranded him from Jones, he would be able to board a ship back to Oasis with Max in tow, which simply couldn’t happen. 

Her plan was pretty brilliant. Not only did she disable his powers by reverse engineering Bonnie’s powers, but she also built a bomb to distract him and trap him under a boulder so that she could run away and into Max Evans’ arms. Liz Ortecho continues to surprise us every single time. 

Of course, Clyde remains determined to finish out what his savior started, so nothing will stand in his way. He severed his hand (how?! why?!)  and freed himself so that he could seek out Shivani’s help. He identified her as the next-best alien scientist to help him get home. And he knew exactly what to say to convince her to help him—promising to bring her daughter back to life. It’s Shivani’s only purpose in life and the only thing she cares about, so you know she’s going to help Clyde restore his powers using the mist that Liz built. Her own creations and discoveries are now coming back to haunt her. 

Thankfully, when Clyde and Shivani attack next, the pod squad will be ready and stronger than ever. Since everything has boiled over, the line of communication is beginning to open up. Liz is realizing that despite being a brilliant scientist, alienating herself and pushing everyone away has only made things worse. If they are to defeat Jones’ one-man army, they need to work together in a unified team.

The first step was Liz admitting she has a problem, followed by an apology to Max for all the hurtful things she said about him holding her back. She didn’t mean it, everyone! Max also owned up to his fault by explaining that he was going to try to get his powers back for the final battle.

Elsewhere, Max encouraged Isobel to get honest about her feelings for Kyle after she figured that she missed her chance. The whole problem stemmed from Kyle trying to shield himself and his heart by informing Isobel that they should be just friends. They’re both on the same page when it comes to how they feel about each other, they just haven’t expressed it out loud. Timing really hasn’t worked in their favor, but if both of Isobel’s brothers are to have epic loves, she also deserves one! And hopefully, sooner rather than later so we get at least one episode of happy Kyle and Isobel before it all comes to an end. 

While the fight was intensifying in Roswell, in the alternate pocket dimension, things were looking pretty bleak. 

The good news was that Michael, Dallas, and Bonnie found Alex, but the bad news was that he was deathly sick from being exposed to all the radiation necessary to create this alternate universe in the first place.  

Just when we thought we got a truly happy moment between #Malex, the writers have to go and throw us yet another curveball. 

The happy reunion and subsequent proposal (yes, PROPOSAL) were short-lived as Alex revealed that he was dying. 

I have full faith that the series will find a way to ensure Alex’s survival, but things are not looking good for him right now. And just when I was about to start wedding planning. They cannot do this to #Malex… they cannot cut their love short just when they got it back! 

Maybe Michael can take Alex to Oasis where he will be healed? 

They weren’t able to find any berries to fuel the portal, but one could hope that they’ll find a way to get back to their loved ones and that #Malex will have the wedding they deserve surrounded by their friends and family.

Their love is timeless and unmatched, and the proposal, while out of the blue, felt so right. It was the perfect proposal for Michael and Alex, two twin flames who can never be apart no matter the distance. 

While they were catching up, Guerin confessed about losing track of what really mattered when he got caught up with the fantasy of trying to get back home to Oasis, but Alex didn’t even flinch because it made sense to him as the Michael he knew was always looking for his home. He understands Guerin better than he knows himself. 

Thus, Guerin will never just accept defeat or that Alex is going to die as a result of radiation exposure. We’ve seen Liz Ortecho basically work magic, so let’s hope she can reverse whatever toxicity is taking hold of Alex’s body. 

Maybe Dallas has a solution since this is a world his father built. Also, Dallas and Bonnie are very cute together, so I find myself rooting for them as a couple. 

My hope for the final episode—after the final battle—is to see everyone find peace within themselves, their relationships, their destinies, and their existence. Maybe we can finally see them just living up to their potential and thriving without any supernatural distractions. 

They all deserve it, as does Roswell. 

What did you think of the episode? How do you think the series will begin tying loose ends?

‘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?
