Wouldn’t it just be so much easier if everyone took a vow of honesty on Roswell, New Mexico? We would eliminate so many issues through the sheer possibility of communication! 

On Roswell, New Mexico Season 3 Episode 9, Operation Save Max was in full swing, and everyone played their part in the plan. 

While Max and Liz took on the West Coast to find Heath in hopes of getting answers, Isobel, Maria, and Gregory teamed up back on the homefront to dig into the identity of the alien the Lockhart Machine was trying to reach. 

Meanwhile, the Lockhart Machine took its toll on Alex, which gave us another sweet #Malex moment. Keep ’em coming, please!

Everyone is boo’ed up at this point — or on the verge of being boo’ed up — and I’ll be honest, many of these feel like the healthiest relationships to date. 

Max and Liz are only slightly troubling, but that’s because they keep falling into the same patterns instead of embracing where their relationship is at this point in time and where it could possibly go. 

I feel like they never take time to talk about what happened, they just go back to flirting as though they didn’t spend the last year trying to get over each other.

Surprisingly, this time, their bickering actually came in handy as it led them to the truth about Heath, who, yes, unfortunately, was lying to and using Liz this whole time. 

Max called it out, but she wanted to so badly believe that she was a good judge of character that she completely disregarded the blind spot she has. 

I knew there was something off with Heath, but I always assumed he was in cahoots with Genoryx. It never once crossed my mind that he could be Bucksin, the best friend of the alien connected to the Lockhart machine. 

Heath, color me impressed!

And the alien in question is none other than the preacher, Dallas (who previously went by Johnny Doe), that’s been helping Rosa with her journey to recovery. 

Isn’t it crazy that there’s been another alien in town this whole time that no one knew about? And why didn’t he know about them?

And he’s not just some any alien — he’s the key to this machine that Jones needs so badly!

There were some flaws within this episode that I couldn’t get over. 

You have to be just a tad annoyed with Liz for leaving all her research out in the open like that along with Heath’s name. 

If this really is a science race and Max’s life, and, quite possibly, the universe, hinges on them figuring out the equation first, then why would she risk that kind of information getting into the wrong hands. 

It’s also understandable that Heath would ignore all of Liz’s phone calls, but why would he pick up a call from her ex Max? Unless he knows Max is an alien already and was compelled to connect with him.

At this point, Heath is a major hypocrite. He became upsets at Liz for not telling him the truth about what was going on with Max, but he never told her the truth about trying to steal her research or the fact that he was attempting to help an alien friend. 

And what does Dallas need help with? It seemed as though Heath was looking for a solution for brain degeneration, but what’s that being triggered by?

Is it somehow connected to the Lockhart Machine?

I truly don’t know what’s going on with that machine, but the hallucinations it caused almost convinced Alex to walk off the ledge, so it’s definitely dangerous in the wrong hands. 

The matrix was glitching! 

Thankfully, Michael came in the knick of time and hit Alex with “I always got you,” melting our fandom hearts even more than usual. 

Alex never wanted Michael to get involved, but considering Michael is an alien and the son of a powerful dictator, he probably should’ve assumed that Michael could take care of himself.

It’s kind of a letdown that Alex got to have such a massive scene with Michael’s mom. I know she was technically a figment of Alex’s hallucination, but it would’ve been cool to have a little chat with her son. 

There was a powerful scene between Kyle and his Tio — though, it did feel slightly out of place because we never saw Kyle address that he knew his uncle or that he understood why he was being held and tested. However, Kyle seemed genuinely happy to learn more about his father from his uncle, so I guess that’s good. 

Despite knowing the dangers of getting involved with aliens, he’s still going to continue walking this path, which is excellent news for Max and Liz. 

Maria was also overly happy during this episode, but who can blame her? She’s sleeping with Gregory Manes!

And, again, Gregory is fully in the know about the alien happenings, which is also something I wasn’t aware was happening. 

I always thought he knew something because of his father, but I didn’t expect Isobel to be speaking so freely about the mindscape around him or snatching drinks from his hand with her mind. 

I’m not complaining though because Maria and Gregory are cute, so that means that he can always be around.

Without Maria in the picture, Malex can finally be fully invested in each other. 

And then there’s Isobel’s budding love life with Anatsa. While I always want what’s best for our girl and hope she takes the time to find herself and learn what she likes and dislikes, I have zero trust that Anasta isn’t just using her for all the wrong reasons. 

She’s an investigative journalist, so she’ll do anything to get the story. If she thinks Isobel is someone who could get her the truth, she’s going to take it.

Are you worried about Isobel getting distracted from the real issue at hand because of a new romance?

What does Jones want with Heath?

And what does the Lockhart Machine want with Dallas?

‘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?
