Roswell, New Mexico, is going to keep us on the edge of our seats for this entire season. We can barely get a breath in between the tragedies.
I was so relieved when Kyle (Michael Trevino) was okay. Max (Nathan Parsons) saved his life, but Liz’s (Jeanine Mason) heart was failing because he did. Apparently, he is tethered to both of them. When he tried to save Liz, then Kyle was almost dying again. Seriously! This is a lot. Plus, Isobel (Lily Cowles) stepped in to stop Jones from healing Max while Liz and Kyle are lying there dying. None of them had a choice. They had to let Jones heal Max.
And now, we’re left with Maria (Heather Hemmens) knocked out on the floor of Max’s apartment with her head bleeding because she tried to save Kyle. And Kyle is nowhere to be found. Did that guy take Kyle with him? Is Kyle okay? I just spent a week worrying about Kyle. Now I have to do it again. And, worry about Maria to boot. The writers are seriously not letting up on these intense storylines.
We also have a storyline that is close to home for some people. Last season, Roswell, New Mexico, talked about the immigrant experience. I felt like it was getting lost with the Black Lives Matter protests. It was a critical story to tell. Now, they are expanding that to more minorities, and they have white supremacists running the town.
The sheriff is useless. She’s arresting innocent people while she lets these insurgents wreak havoc on the town. People have a right to protest. That is one of our constitutional rights, plus it is crystal clear who the good guys and the bad guys are. She just can’t see it. Jordan (Michael Grant Terry) almost killed Kyle. If it weren’t for Max, he would be dead. And now he wants to take care of the murderers. He and his friends are the only murderers.
I’m glad that they are continuing to tell his story. And that Kyle and Max are trying to be voices for them, but they are now in the crosshairs of the insurgents. They, of course, are both fine with that. They will keep fight. It’s us that is a nervous wreck.
And damn it, Jones. He raised tensions by killing Zeke (Zacciah Hanson). Sure he was a bad guy, but now it’s starting a war in Roswell. Kyle could still end up in that coffin. More than one of them could end up dead. It’s not boding well.
