Another week, another episode of Roswell, New Mexico, and another night of me freaking out. The writers are seriously bringing it this season.
Where to start. Trying to defeat Jones was definitely the main event in “Goodnight Elizabeth.” Everyone pulled all their resources into that mission while Kyle (Michael Trevino) is still missing. And no one knows that Alex (Tyler Blackburn) found him. More on that later.
We all underestimated Jones. We knew he was the most powerful alien we have ever met and that he was much more powerful than Noah. It turns out when Jones healed Max (Nathan Parsons), he also took his body. The deception of this man is unrivaled.
One of the biggest revelations was that he’s the dictator! And Michael’s (Michael Vlamis) father! I did not see that coming. I should have. He’s as powerful as Jones is.
There are so many things that Jones told half-truths about. He was manipulating them every step of the way.
If Michael can keep training, he’s got one up on Jones because he’s a freaking genius. Add in Liz’s (Jeanine Mason) smarts too. Isobel (Lily Cowles) is also very powerful, and if we get Alex back on the team and Kyle wakes up, we’ve got a pretty powerful team on our hands. And you know Maria (Heather Hemmens) is going to be fighting every step of the way in her mind as well.
We are definitely going to have to have every single one of them working together to defeat Jones. And, I am here for it! That will be incredible if that’s where this is going.
And don’t forget Rosa (Amber Midthunder). You can’t sideline her after she saved all of their asses. Yeah, it really just buys them time for now, but still. Isobel and Michael may be dead now if it wasn’t for Rosa, and Liz would be his prisoner as well as Maria. Rosa, for the win! At least for this battle.
Rosa got the inspiration she needed to help her friends and family. But who is this man, Dallas (Quentin Plair)? I liked him, and he was extremely helpful, but we let Jones get the best of us. I do not trust any strangers now.
Circling back around to Alex, Kyle and his uncle, Eduardo Ramos (David DeSantos). I was only half relieved to find Kyle because he’s lying in a hospital bed that’s in a barn. That’s not good at all.
I’m still not sure if we can trust Deep Sky or Kyle’s uncle. Ramos clearly doesn’t trust Deep Sky, but is that because he truly thinks they were compromised or he’s gone rogue?
This man knows a hell of a lot more than he’s letting on. He knows that Alex is in love with an alien, Michael. Does he know about Max and Isobel too?
Alex definitely is a lot more open-minded than his father was. It’s not because he fell in love with an alien. It’s just who he is. He’s been talking “alien shop” with his new boss, but not once did he let on that he knew aliens were real. Protecting his friends comes first.
This alien machine is a lot more dangerous than it first appeared. It’s releasing radiation, but of course, Alex is super smart, so Ramos wanted to let him discover more until he let him in on the truth.
My question is, will unlocking the secret of this machine help their friends and defeat Jones? If the answer is yes, then Alex should continue to work on it, and when Kyle wakes up, hopefully soon, then Ramos can shed some knowledge to Kyle. Between Ramos’s research and what Kyle and Alex have learned, plus the fact that they actually know aliens, there could be a wealth of information here, that is, if we decide we trust Ramos.
