Roswell Episode Guide

This is a listing of all the episodes and what happens in them.






I wanted to set up my Episode Guide a bit differently than other guides online.
Mine has the usual episode summaries, cast listings, & info, etc, but I've added even more info.

- Important happenings in each episode
vital info that drives the story or is important for upcoming episodes

- things revealed about the alien mythology

info about the alien's past, powers, etc.

- guest characters

anyone other than the main characters, Liz, Max, the Sheriff, etc, who appear in the episode - and explanations of who they are

- additional info

interesting tidbits we learn in the episode about the characters, the town, etc

- episode aka names
if it applies
some episodes were also known by another name


- episode name common abbreviations
if it applies
some episodes have abbreviations for their names that are commonly used online


- episode working titles
if it applies
some episodes had temporary names (aka working titles) before the real name was chosen


- episode name origins

Some of the episode names were obviously taken from things in the show, and others may have been chosen or derived from movies, other tv shows, music and pop culture. I have added an origin to the episode names that struck me as being pretty obviously taken from something else. Of course I have no proof and may be incorrect, so if anyone has other info, please let me know.

- I’ve also divided the episodes into days; day 1, day 2, etc

The change of day is determined by the characters wearing different clothes, and/or night and day changes
- and I mentioned dates or days of the week if known.

A lot of the time, we don't know what the date is, and on the episodes we do have dates for, some of the dates contradict each other or don't make sense. They list the same event on two different days, or put the gang in school on Saturday or Sunday, but I have listed them as they were. Also you might notice that on some days the gang seem to be going to work before school. Perhaps they have work release?

If the date was given on the show, I've put the abbreviation for the epi title they were mentioned in next to the date - example (EOTW)
If the date was given on the Silver Handprint I've put an abbreviation for that as (SHP)
If the date can be figured out by events I've put the abbreviations (DTM) - do the math

You will notice that I've used different terms for the days
The next day - something in the episode tells it takes place the next day.
Appears to be the next day - the events would most likely occur the next day, but there is nothing in the episode to say for sure.
Probably or possibly the next day - events could take place the next day or a couple of days later, but nothing in the episode pinpoints the exact time.



Okay, now on to the guide!

Episode Name Origin I have seen sites where this episode was named ‘Action’, but have never seen it officially listed that way, so I don’t know if that is a fan creation or something that wasn’t widely used. Possibly from the saying ‘Lights, Camera, Action!’

I have also seen this episode titled 'Love and Death', but again have never seen it officially listed that way.

Pilot

Synopsis: - Day 1 (Saturday Sept 18th, or Sunday Sept 19th)
Liz Parker is accidentally shot in the Crashdown Café, where she works, and that her father owns. Max Evans, a classmate of Liz’s who has been secretly in love with her since he was a child, rushes to her and heals what would have been a fatal wound, and begs her not to say anything.

Liz does what Max asks, and lies to everyone, saying she fell and spilled ketchup. But two tourists in the cafe suspect that something isn't as it appears, because they can't find a bullet. They tell the Sheriff, Jim Valenti, about the two boys, one of whom went up to Liz after she fell, and point out where they were sitting. The Sheriff notices empty tabasco bottles on the table.

Later, Liz discovers a silver handprint on her stomach where Max healed her. She hides the uniform she was wearing when she was shot in her backpack.

- Day 2 (the next day - Monday Sept 20th)
Liz tests Max's cells in her science class, and they aren't like human cells. She confronts Max, and he reveals that he is ‘Not of this Earth,’ and begs her to keep his secret because his life depends on it.

Maria, Liz's best friend, who was also present at the shooting, is also suspicious, but her friend Alex tells her she is being silly. But Maria confronts Liz, telling her that she has an order pad, but it is covered in blood, not ketchup. Liz refuses to talk.

Meanwhile, Max admits to his friend, Michael and sister, Isabel, who are also otherworldly, that he told Liz the truth about them. Michael and Isabel are upset and Michael wants to leave town because he fears the government will come after them. But Max assures them that Liz won't say anything.

Sheriff Valenti pulls the three of them over in the Jeep, in a routine traffic stop, and notices the tabasco bottle on the floor, making him connect Max with the shooting.

Later that night, on a date with Liz, her boyfriend Kyle, sees the silver handprint on Liz’s stomach and tells his father, the Sheriff. Both of them have seen a similar mark, on a picture of a corpse discovered in 1959 by former Sheriff Jim Valenti Sr, Jim Jr.’s father, and Kyle’s grandfather.

The handprint along with the fact that no bullet was found at the scene of the shooting, and the eyewitness testimony of two tourists, Larry and Jennifer, leads Sheriff Valenti to suspect Max of being otherworldly.

Max is waiting for Liz after her date and uses his powers to reverse a conncetion with her, so she can 'see him'. She feels his feelings and discovers how alone he has been, and that he has feelings for her.

- Day 3 (Friday Sept 22th or 24th)
Liz discovers that she has lost her backpack with her bloody uniform in it, and searches for it. Sheriff Valenti interviews Liz and shows a picture of a corspe from 1959, with a silver handprint, and asks to see her stomach because Kyle said he had seen a handprint there. Liz reluctantly shows him, but it has faded. Valenti tells Liz someone turned in her backpack, and returns it to her, but he keeps her uniform out of it, and gives it to the FBI. Liz, upset by the picture of the corpse with the silver handprint, confronts Max, and demands that he tell her everything. He starts to, telling her about Isabel and Michael also being otherworldly, and about their powers, but says no one else knows. Liz tells Max about the photo and that Valenti suspects them, and Max runs away. He goes to Isabel and tells her it is time to leave town.

Maria confronts Liz again, demanding the truth or she will go to the Sheriff, so Liz tells her that Max, his sister Isabel and their friend Michael are aliens from the ‘47 crash.

Max, Michael & Isabel believing that they are about to be exposed, start to drive out of town. Liz and Maria track them down and they agree to try her plan to trick the Sheriff and make him less suspicious.

At the Crash Festival, they stage an accident where Maria gets hit by a car, and healed by someone leaving a silver handprint. The Sheriff chases the person who supposedly healed Maria, but when he finds them, it is his son in the costume.

Liz arranged for Michael to be wearing the same costume as Kyle to throw the Sheriff off. The Sheriff is forced to back off Max, but he is still suspicious.

Max thanks Liz and tells her he wishes there could be something between them, but they are just too different. Liz thanks Max for saving her life.

Guest
characters:
Jeffery Parker - Liz’s father
Deputy Owen Blackwood – Native American deputy
Ms. Hardy - Max & Liz’s Biology teacher
Agent John Stevens – FBI Agent who takes Liz’s dress to be analyzed
Larry Trilling - Tourist who suspects Max did something to Liz in the Crashdown
Jennifer - Tourist who suspects Max did something to Liz in the Crashdown

Important
happenings:
- Liz’s gunshot wound is healed by Max, and he tells her of his, Michael’s and
    Isabel’s otherworldly origins
- Kyle sees the silver handprint left when Max healed Liz, and tells his
    father, making Sheriff Valenti suspicious of Max.
- Valenti starts to investigate and finds the dress Liz was wearing when she
    was shot, and gives it to the FBI, starting their interest in Max.
- Sheriff Valenti is obsessed with aliens because his father ruined his life in his
    search for them
- The picture Valenti shows Liz of the corpse with the silver handprint
    confirms that there was at least one other survivor from the ship who
    was still alive in 1959
- Liz tells Maria about Max, Michael and Isabel’s secret
- Liz helps Max, Michael and Isabel fake an injury and healing on Maria to
    throw the Sheriff off his suspicions of Max. This begins the friendship
    and trust between aliens and humans.

Alien
mythology:
- Alien blood is different than human blood
- The aliens don’t know where they are from or why they are here
- When the ship crashed in 1947, Max, Michael & Isabel weren’t born yet
    (they are assuming they were on the ship that crashed, but have no proof)
- the aliens were in pods for approximately 50 years before they hatched
- They have the power to connect with people and manipulate molecular structure
- They have never known of the existence of others like them, and assume the
    government or the crash killed anyone else who was on the ship
- There was another alien survivor at least until 1959

Dates
mentioned:
The dates in this episode are all messed up

- September 23rd – mentioned by Liz at the start of the episode when she is writing
    in her journal (I’m Liz Parker and five days ago I died.)
- September 24th – mentioned by Liz at the end of the episode when she is writing
    in her journal (I’m Liz Parker and five days ago I died.)
So Liz was shot either on Sept 18th or 19th according to her journal.
    The 18th was a Saturday, the 19th was a Sunday.
The next day is a school day. The Sheriff pulls Max over and says
    – “We had a little trouble at the Crashdown Cafe yesterday.”

- A flier gives the date for the Crash Festival as Friday September 22nd
    (but Friday of Sept 1999 was the 24th)

- The photo that Valenti shows Liz of the corpse with the silver handprint is marked Nov 16, 1959

Additional Info: - Liz’s family has lived in Roswell 4 generations
- Liz jokes that her Grandmother was at the crash site, so one of her Grandmothers, maybe Claudia, may have lived in the area at the time.

Agent Stephens sends Topolsky to get the files from the Evans' house. Meanwhile Sheriff Valenti asks Milton about Atherton and discovers that he is the corpse with the silver handprint in the pics from 1959.

The files are stolen from the Evans' house under the cover of a break in. While investigating, Deputy Blackwood sees the pendant Isabel took from Atherton's house. He mentions that he hasn't seen anything like it since he left the Mesaliko reservation.

Valenti confronts Topolsky letting her know that he has discovered she is FBI.

The gang realizes that they are being followed. Michael sees the pendant and also recognized they symbol, but Max reminds him it is too dangerous to investigate.

- Day 2 appears to be the next day (November 6 or 11)
Liz tells Max she is going to the reservation to investigate the symbol, and she meets River Dog.

- Day 3 appears to be the next day (November 7 or12)
Eddie comes to the Crashdown to invite Liz to meet River Dog at 10pm. Isabel and Michael act as a decoy to distract the agents following them, and Max and Liz go see River Dog. Eddie takes them to a cave, and River Dog tests Max to make sure he is a 'visitor'

Sheriff Valenti tells Topolsky he is going to blow her cover, and she suggests working together.

Michael, Isabel & Maria wait at the Crashdown, and Michael kisses Maria to 'calm her down.'

River Dog tells Max and Liz about the other alien he knew who he hasn't seen for 40 years. RD didn't know where the alien was from or why he was there, but he befriended everyone on the reservation.

The alien only trusted RD and James Atherton, and gave Atherton his pendant. But the alien killed Atherton in November 1959, and RD doesn't know why.

Then RD shows Max and Liz the messages that the alien left on the cave wall. The alien told RD that he was in danger and he had to leave, but he said that someday someone else would come, and asked him to show whoever passed the test the message on the wall.

RD tells Max and Liz that no one else has come, and he warns Liz to make sure that Max deserves her loyalty.

Max and Liz go for a drive and have an accident, and an unconscious Max is taken to the hospital. Liz calls Maria, who brings Michael and Isabel with her.

Topolsky is told about the accident and sees it as an opportunity to expose Max, and sends her agents to the hospital.

A nurse takes Max's blood, and Michael and Isabel immediately start thinking of how to get it back, so Max isn't exposed. Maria gets Alex to come to the hospital and Liz asks for his blood to replace Max's, and Michael switches the blood sample.

Max wakes up and is discharged, and Michael discovers the agents going through Max's chart. Agent Moss tells Topolsky that he thinks Max's blood sample was switched with Alex's.

- Day 2 (the next day, Nov 19) (DTM)
Max and Liz lose the agent following them, so Maria, Isabel and Michael can follow him. They find his motel and Michael & Maria search it, discovering Topolsky's phone #.

- Day 3 (the next day, Nov 20) (DTM)
Topolsky confronts Alex about the blood switch and asks him to sign a confession.

Max tries to reassure Alex, but Alex tells him that Topolsky already knows.

The Balance

Synopsis: - Day 1
Michael discovers that Max didn't tell them about the map in cave. Max explains that he was worried Michael would do something stupid and get exposed. And of course Michael does do something stupid. He goes to the reservation and demands to see River Dog. Eddie takes him into a sweat ceremony to test him.

Meanwhile Alex questions Isabel about her origins and Max and Liz go on their first date. Maria interrupts their date because Michael is sick. He recovers quickly and everything seems fine. After everyone leaves Liz and Maria discuss their experiences with Max and Michael.

- Day 2 (appears to be the next day)
Alex takes Isabel to the UFO Center to show her pictures of ruins w/ symbols similar to the ones on the drawing. Michael collapes, and Liz and Max go to the reservation to get help from River Dog.

While they wait for RD, Max tells Liz about coming out of the pods and the first time he saw Michael.

Michael is in a sort of trance or coma and has visions of being in a area with pointed rocks, alien symbols on the ground, and a 'V' formation in the stars.

Liz and Max fianlly find RD and tell him Michael is sick, and he says to bring him to the reservation. They bring Michael to the cave with the whole gang and RD tells them about the alien he knew, Nasedo, getting sick and how he healed him.

RD says he needs the gang to help heal Michael and gives them each a healing stone. The stones have the 'balance' in them, the same energy that is inside their bodies.

They drink from a bowl to begin a connection. Liz is scared for Max and RD tells her to step back so she won't stop the healing. The others chant, the healing stones start to glow, and they are all pulled into Michael's vision. They each great him, showing their friendship and love, and somehow Liz is pulled into the vision too.

Michael recovers and somehow knows that the drawing on the cave wall is a map.

Later, Max goes to Liz and tells her that he has to take a step back from her for a while, because he can't think of anything but her. Liz kisses him and sees the 'V' formation in the sky.

Guest
characters:
Milton Ross - owner of the UFO Center
River Dog - Native American from the Mesaliko reservation
Eddie - Native American from the Mesaliko reservation

Important
happenings:
- River Dog tells the gang more about the other alien and gives them the healing stones
- Michael somehow knows that the writing on the cave wall is a map
- Max takes a 'step back' from Liz
Alien
mythology:
- Max drew the map from the cave by memory (this demonstrates the 'scanning' ability that Ed Harding mentions in TWR)
- When Max and Isabel first came out of the pods, they could communicate without speaking
- Michael gets sick after going into the sweat with River Dog and Eddie. First he collapses, but then seems fine. The next day, he collapses again. His eyes are white and he starts running a fever. He becomes delirious and starts having visions with alien symbols in them.  Later he is covered with a grayish-white webbing.
- River Dog tells the gang a lot more about the alien he knew. The alien called himself a visitor, so RD called him Nasedo, which is the word for visitor in his language.
- The elders believed he was an evil spirit and tested him in a sweat ceremony. His reaction was quick and he got really sick. Within a minute his eyes were white and he was sweating. He said the heat from the sweat disrupted the energy in his body, his 'balance'. If the balance wasn't restored, he would die.
- Human/alien hybrids take longer to get sick than pure aliens
- Nasedo had to tell RD his secret so he could heal him
- Nasedo gave RD the healing stones, which are from his planet. They have an energy inside that is the same as inside their bodies. The energy inside the body activates them and then the balance is restored. But there is a risk that the balance can pull you in. The balance is a force that can change your body and mind if you don't navigate it properly.
- Max, Isabel, Maria and Alex are able to use the healing stones to heal Michael. They stand around a circle, drink from a bowl of water to connect themselves, hold the healing stones while chanting and concentrate on their feelings for Michael.  The stones glow and they are drawn into Michael's vision where they greet him.  Max reaches for Michael in a sort of a cave and lifts him up and back into balance, and Michael wakes up.
- Michael realizes that the cave drawing is a map, and that the healing stones fit into it and form a 'V' shape.

- Liz and Max have their first date at Senior Chow's
- Max's version of coming out of the pods, and later finding Michael, doesn't match with what he 'remembers' later with Tess in 4S.
- Nasedo is the native american word for visitor
- RD mentions to Maria that Liz must find her own path. Then Liz somehow appears in the healing vision with the others even though she didn't drink from the bowl or chant and she stepped out of the circle.

Milton later tells Max that the sighting was in Frazier Woods, near the reservation, and Max realizes that it was near the cave where River Dog took them.

At school Max talks to Michael and Isabel and suggests going on the Father's Camping weekend so they can explore the woods without seeming suspicious. But of course Michael can't go because he doesn't have a father.

River Dog shows up at Michael's house to tell him that the sighting was real, and he knows because he's seen it before.

- Day 3 (Friday, Jan 7th - possibly the next day)
Liz pays Maria to go on the camping trip with her. Jeff sees Maria giving Liz a bag of pills when Liz gives Maria money, and assumes it is drugs.

Valenti tells Kyle that he is too busy looking into the sighting to go on the camping trip this year. Kyle is disappointed, but Valenti tells him, he can go with the Coach.

Michael tells Max and Isabel that he believes River Dog is the fourth alien they have been looking for, because RD is following him and knows too much about them.

In her quest to 'move on' from Max and Michael, Maria lies to them, telling them that she and Liz have dates that weekend. Isabel tells Alex she has to cancel their plans, because she is going camping, and he says he is too.

In their own groups, Alex, his father, Liz, Maria, Jeff Parker, Philip Evans, Isabel, Max, Sheriff Valenti and Kyle all see each other at the buses and realize they are all going camping.

They arrive at the campsite and choose sites together, and camping fun ensues. Kyle tells Liz & Maria scary alien stories, Max plays poker with Jeff, Philip and Mr. Whitman, and Alex and Isabel stargaze.

Liz has figured out that Max and Isabel are there because of the sighting and follows them into the woods. Maria comes too and Valenti is not far behind. Search dogs start to chase Max, Isabel, Liz and Maria, and Liz tells Max and Isabel to go on and find what they can, and she will distract the dogs. So Liz and Maria pretend to be lost in the woods.

River Dog goes to get Michael, and tells him it is time. RD leads Michael into the woods and falls, breaking his ankle. Michael confronts him, but RD tells him he is not his father. Michael heals his ankle.

Isabel and Max meet up with RD and Michael to see the place where the sighting was. There is an alien symbol burnt into the ground, and using their powers, they make it glow. Michael thinks the signal means that Nasedo is back.

Valenti isn't far behind them, but is held up by Kyle, who wants to know what is more important than him.

Max, Isabel and Michael hear Valenti coming, and Michael distracts him while Max uses his powers to 'erase' the signal. Valenti demands to know what they found, but Max pretends that they are lost in the woods.

- Day 4 (possibly the next day but it could be Sun or Mon after the camping trip)
Valenti goes to visit his father in the retirement home, and mentions that it has been a long time since they've seen one another.

Michael meets Maria's mother, and doesn't make a good impression.

Milton introduces Hubble to Max as an ailen hunter. Valenti's memories are stirred up by Hubble's arrival, and Valenti starts going through his father's things.

Michael sees Max is having trouble keeping his mind off Liz, and tells him to think about mud when she is around..

Alex meets up with Isabel at the convention, and she says he has to stop following her.

Hubble asks Valenti about the shooting at the Crashdown. Valenti doesn't want anything to do with him. He says that his father went crazy, and had to be committed because of Hubble.

Second day of the 10th Annual UFO Convention

Frakes puts his handprints in cement

Michael decides to keep an eye on Larry.

At Milton's request, Max invites Hubble to be on the Roundtable discussion. Hubble says no, because it is a joke. He says real aliens aren't so funny. Curious, Max looks up Hubble on Milton's database and discovers that he was a witness to the 'Silo Murder' that forced Valenti's father to retire.

Valenti goes to see his father to ask about Hubble. Sr. says Hub couldn't let go of his wife and child, but Valenti believes Hubble had no wife and kid, and thinks his father has lost it.

At the convention, at the 'Direct Contact Symposium', Larry tells of his 'alien encounter' at the Crashdown when he was witness to the shooting. Michael uses his powers to make Larry look crazy, but Hubble believes his story, and asks him the details.

Michael overhears Amy's phone call about the match being canceled, and she will lose half of her income.

Hubble tells Valenti that the alien he is hunting has been killing people for 40 years and shows him pictures of corpses with silver handprints on them, and asks if Max is involved. Valenti is moved by the pics and tells Hubble that Max might be involved.

Alex goes to Isabel's house to give her a book her bought her, but she tells him he is sufficating her.

Michael fills in for the missing wrestler, so Amy won't lose her money. Maria tries to thank him with a kiss, but he interrupts the moment by saying mud.

Valenti checks out the pics that Hubble gave him, and discovers one of them was his wife.

Hubble approaches Max and agrees to do the roundtable, but says he needs a ride to get his slides. Max agrees and they drive off.

Michael sees Max with Hubble and gets Larry to tell him who he is and what is going on, and rushes off to save Max.

Valenti goes back to visit his father and ask about Hubble. Sr. tells Valenti that Hubble shot the drifter, and he can't be trusted.

On the drive Hubble tells Max the story of how his wife was killed. When they reach the spot, Hubble asks him to stop.

After his talk with Hubble, Larry decides that he is tried of chasing aliens, and wants to just get married and settle down.

Hubble believes Max is the alien who killed his wife, and intends to kill him. Michael interrupts them, and Max knocks the gun from his hand. Max and Hubble struggle, but Hubble gets the gun back.

Kyle tells Max he sympathises with him, because he knows what it's like to be dumped by Liz

- Day 3 (possibly the next day)
Michael is determined to find the 4th alien, but Max and Isabel are wary because the other alien is a killer. Michael, of course, won't listen to them. Isabel tries to get Max to understand that it is the only thing giving Michael hope.

Liz is interviewed by the KROZ DJ about her requirements for a Dream Date, and she says she would like a serious, darkhaired, mystery man from an exotic place.

Alex's band plays at the auditions and the judges like Maria.

- Day 4 (Feb 14th Valentines Day, Friday - possibly the next day)
Alex and Maria are disagreeing about what should be played at the concert, and Liz convinces them to compromise for the performance.

Michael convinces Isabel to go with him to the Library, where he believes one of the symbols on the map from the cave is pointing.

As Liz gets ready for her blind date, she daydreams that Max came for her, but she is interrupted by her date arriving. He is a college freshman named Doug Shellow who studies ancient languages.

Max is listening to the broadcast of the date on the radio, when Kyle and his friends arrive at his house, drunk. Kyle dares him to go see Liz on her date, and Max agrees.

Liz and Doug have an awkward meal at Chez Pierre, because it is being broadcast and there is a large crowd watching. Doug suggests they make a run for it to lose the people.

Kyle and Max go to the restaurant, and Max sees Liz's date kiss her, and then they run out the back.

Kyle offers Max a drink of alcohol to ease his pain, and one small sip makes Max drunk.

Isabel and Michael follow the map to the library, where they send a signal for Nasedo.

Drunk, Max confesses to Kyle that he never stopped loving Liz. Max and Kyle decide to win her back and head to her house. Max uses his powers to make a heart on Liz's wall with M.E + L.P. inside. Then Max and Kyle go into her room.

Doug and Liz end up back at the Crashdown to try and have a normal date

Isabel tells Michael she is worried about him contacting the other alien, because he might be dangerous. She's also worried that Michael will leave her and Max, but he is stubborn and sends the signal anyway.

The radio station finds Liz and Doug, and they run upstairs. In Liz's room they find Max and Kyle, who tell Doug they are there to win Liz back.

Kyle keeps Doug busy while Max and Liz talk. Liz is worried that Max will reveal his true self since he is drunk and they escape off her balcony.

Max tells Liz he wants to run away with her, and that she is his dream girl, but Liz is skeptical because he is drunk that he will change him mind when he sobers up.

Michael's signal burns out, but no one comes. He is frustrated, saying no one ever comes for him. Isabel says she will always come for him.

Max and Liz go to the Blind Date concert, where the DJ asks her to choose between the three men.

In an attempt to win her, Max kisses her and Liz gets flashes of her past times with Max, as well as a vision of the 'V' formation in the stars. Max immediately sobers up, and tries to leave.

Liz asks him if he meant what he said, but he doesn't remember anything that happened.

After Michael and Isabel leave, Nasedo goes to the library and reignites the fire for the signal and burns a pic of Michael, Isabel and Max.

She says when her cover was blown she was sent back to Washington DC and that's when she found out about the Special Unit. They are alien hunters, and once you are a part of them, you don't get out. The leader, Pierce, interrogated her for 4 weeks, and she would hate to see what he would do to an enemy.

Tess Lies and Videotape

Synopsis: - Day 1 - April 13 (DTM)
Max sees Tess at the Crashdown and has a vision of them together. Disturbed, he takes Liz aside and kisses her and has another vision of kissing Tess. Instantly he is suspicious of her.

- Day 2 - April 14 (SHP) (appears to be the next day)
Sheriff Valenti starts to wonder if Topolsky isn't crazy because of the orb he found, and tries to contact her, but can't get through.

At school, Max is assigned to be Tess' lab partner and has a vision of grabbing and kissing her passionately on the table.

Maria is worried about the way Tess is looking at Max and tells Liz.

Max knows something is weird with Tess and tells Michael, but he doesn't believe him.

That night Valenti learns that there has been a fire at the hospital where Topolsky is a patient. He calls and finds out Topolsky was killed in the fire, and her doctor, Dr. Margolin has never been to Roswell.

- Day 3 - April 15 (the next day) (DTM)
Valenti goes to see Max and tells him Topolsky is dead and Margolin was never in Roswell. He asks Max if the doctor could have been a shapeshifter, but Max doesn't believe they exist. Because of the events, Valenti wonders if everything Topolsky said might be true and they are really in danger. If it is true, they all need to trust each other.

In Michael's apartment, we see that a camera has been planted, and someone is watching him.

Michael decides to check out Tess, and goes to her house. It is empty and a bunch of army guys show up with guns. He is convinced she is military or FBI.

Liz overhears Michael call Tess Max's new girlfriend.

Valenti gives Isabel, Max and Michael the orb back, hoping it will be a first step in them trusting him.

Isabel goes to check out Tess' house and meets her father Ed. The movers have just arrived and are unloading their possessions. Isabel picks up a box of photos to help and Tess snatches it from her, acting strangly.

Later at the Crashdown, Max tells Liz that there is nothing going on between him and Tess. He tells Liz she is the one he is supposted to be with, and he could never be with anyone else.

As he leaves, he runs into Tess across the street. It is raining and her car has broken down, but he suspects she has done it on purpose to meet him.

Slowly he moves toward her as he tells her he only wants to be with Liz. They kiss passionately, and Max gets a vision. He is horrified and asks who she is.

From the Crashdown window Liz sees them kiss.

Distraught, Max goes to Michael's house and tells him that he kissed Tess against his will. Michael can't believe he would betray Liz, and is tired of him meeting with Valenti, and they fight. The struggle moves into the kitchen and Max finds the camera.

- Day 4 - April 16 (the next day) (DTM)
Max tries to tell Liz what is happening. He says he doesn't know what is going on and he had a flash when he kissed Tess.

Liz is more upset that he had a flash, because it means she isn't special.

Talking to Maria, Liz says she can't believe Max cheated, and she needs to find out what is really going on.

Alex get the camera to work and he and Michael decide to use it to spy on Tess, thinking she is FBI.

Liz goes to see Tess, supposedly to talk about Max, but really to plant the camera. Tess tells Liz that she doesn't want to cause trouble and Max kissed her.

Liz plants the camera, and finds the box of photos that Isabel saw. She opens it to find it full of pics of Max. She is almost caught by Mr. Harding, and stumbles back, knocking over a statue, where she planted the camera.

Ed invites her to stay to dinner, and Liz feels like she doesn't have a choice. She prentends to call her mother, but calls Max and asks for help.

From a nearby warehouse, Alex, Michael, Isabel and Maria are watching through the camera and see it go dead when it falls, and they decide to rescue her.

As Liz eats dinner with the Hardings, Ed quizzes about her life and Max. Liz can't stop worring about the camera, and offers to clean up the statue, but Ed won't let her.

Ed starts to clean it up, and Liz thinks he is going to see the camera, but the doorbell rings, distracting him.

Liz grabs the camera and plants it somewhere else.

It is Max at the door, and he leaves with Liz, meeting the others outside. Liz tells them that the box is full of pics of Max.

Valenti is in a car across the street, watching everything.

Later, back at the warehouse, Max thanks Liz for having faith in him, but she tells him she still can't believe he kissed Tess.

On the camera, they watch as Tess uses alien powers to fix the broken statue.

Max & Liz look up the 'V' formation at school. They find out it is the Ares constellation but Venus completes the 'V' pattern, and it started moving into that position about the time Tess came to town. They also see Tess talking to Kyle and wonder what she is doing with him.

Disturbed by the dreams they had, Michael tells Maria he wants to go steady, and Isabel tells Alex she is ready to have a relationship with him. After school Isabel takes a nap and dreams that she and Michael have sex, and she is pregnant.

Tess shows up at Michael's house that night and draws the four square symbol on his window, and he has a vision of the night he came out of the pod.

- Day 3 - April 19 (the next day) (DTM)
At the Crashdown, Liz tries to warn Kyle about Tess, but he won't listen. He tells Liz they have a study date at the library that night.

Max & Liz steak out the library and see Tess take a metal book out of the wall.

Michael tells Max the four square symbol on the map is at Pohlman Ranch where the crash was. Max tells Michael he doesn't trust the info because it came from Tess, and he tells Michael nothing happened at the library.

That night both Isabel and Michael dream they are happy together with a baby, and Isabel tells Michael she thinks she is pregnant with his child.

Max dreams of aliens symbols and Tess, and she comes to his room and takes him into the desert. Max goes with her passively, and perhaps she is controling him. When they arrive, at the rock formation, Tess tells him they have all been there before.

Tess tells Max to hold her and he will remember, but Max says he knows she's a killer. She says she knows their destiny, and it is in the book. Max slaps it away and attacks her, telling her to show him her true form. She says that is not who she is, and he just have to remember because he has seen her before. Max has a vision of the night they came out of the pods. He remembers Michael and Isabel, like he has before, and this time Tess is in the fourth pod.

- Day 4 - April 20 (the next day) (DTM)
Suddenly it is morning, and Michael and Isabel drive up, and Max tells them Tess is one of them.

Max to the Max

Synopsis: - Day 1 - April 20 (the same day as '4S' - the whole epi takes place in 1 day) (DTM)
The episode picks up where 'Four Square' left off. Max, Michael, Isabel and Tess are still standing together, and Max remembers where the pod chamber is and opens it for Michael and Isabel. Tess tells them it is where they were born.

Isabel has a flash of being there before, but is disturbed by it and runs out, and Max follows. Tess tells Michael that she can give him all the answers, but he has to get Max and Isabel to trust her first. She gives him the metal book.

Michael leaves and Nasedo comes out of the wall, where he was hidden, and chastizes Tess for bringing the others to the pod chamber. He says Pierce and the Special Unit is closer to them than anyone every has been.

We see someone watching the recording of Michael's apartment, where Michael and Isabel are talking about Nasedo. Then the person watching touches the nearby orb.

Michael takes the metal book out to Max and Isabel, and they look through it. The book is written in a strange language and has pictures of the four of them. Michael says it is because they were designed. Max doesn't want to believe.

Isabel tells Max that she thinks she is pregnant from the dreams they have been having, and Max says he will ask Tess.

Valenti is suspicious of Ed Harding and checks him out.

A new deputy arrives in Roswell, Dave Fisher, from Santa Fe. The Sheriff is instantly suspicious and checks him out.

Maria overhears Michael and Isabel talking about the baby. He says he won't let her go through it alone.

Ed sees someone following him and leads him down an alley and kills him.

Max goes to Tess to talk. She tells him that Nasedo is not their father, but was there for her. She doesn't know what he really looks like, and he doesn't have a human body and needs to hide who he really is.

Max asks if they mate through their dreams and Tess says they have to do it the human way. She says the dreams are to awaken them and show them who they are supposed to be with.

Max goes to the Crashdown to convince Liz to leave with him and go for a drive.

Down the block, the real Max drops Tess off.

Liz kisses the 'Max' she is with, and gets a flash that disturbs her.

Back at the Crashdown Maria asks Michael about the baby, and he says Isabel is more important than their relationship. Alex goes to Isabel, and tells her no matter what he will support her.

Max tells Isabel and Michael that she is not pregnant. Maria asks about Liz and she says he picked her up, but he denies it.

On the road, the other Max pulls over and takes a body out of the trunk and dumps it. Liz doesn't see because she gets a call from the real Max, and now realizes she is with Nasedo.

Back in Roswell, the real Max wants to go to Valenti to have him help find Liz, but the others disagree about telling him the truth. Maria suggests that they tell Valenti Max took Liz. She and Alex go to Valenti and tell him just that.

Posing as Max, Nasedo leaves a phone message for Pierce telling him there is a clue on Hwy 380 near mile marker 67. Then Nasedo tells Liz that he is posing as Max to lure out Pierce.

They stop at a gas station and he leaves a silver handprint before causing an explosion.

Michael grabs Tess off the street and forces her to go with him, Max and Isabel to find Liz.

Fisher tells Valenti there was an explosion at the gas station and Valenti tells him to stay and wait for the security camera pictures. Fisher sees Max driving the others in the Jeep moments later. Then Fisher gets the security camera picture and sees Max on that too.

Nasedo takes Liz to a carnival. He tells Liz all he cares about it protecting them and no one else matters.

Valenti is driving to check out the expolsion and come across the Special Unit at mile marker 67 with the body.

Tess tells Max, Isabel and Michael that nothing matters except the four of them but Max says that it is Tess that doesn't matter and it is all about saving Liz.

Tess says she has been running from the Special Unit all of her life.

Nasedo tells Liz that Tess and Max were made to be together. Liz tells him that she doesn't believe him. When Max saved her life he changed her and they saw into each others' souls.

Nasedo sends another sign, an alien signal into the air, like a spot light. While he is distracted, Liz runs.

Valenti sees the signal and follows it.

Max and the others see the signal too, and Tess says that Nasedo is luring Pierce to him. But Max is only afraid for Liz's life.

At the carnival, Nasedo chases Liz and she runs into a hall of mirrors. Valenti sees who he thinks is Max going into the hall of mirrors and goes after them. Max arrives just in time to see Valenti go in and follows him.

Inside, Max finds Nasedo and tells him he won't leave without Liz. Max finds Liz and they see the Special Unit guys and run.

Fisher shows up, startling Valenti and there is gun fire, and the Special Unit goes after the other Max.

After they get away, Liz kisses Max, but can tell from the flash she gets that he isn't her Max but Nasedo. He tells her he must get the real Max back, and leaves her.

Crying, Liz runs into Isabel, Michael and Tess and tells them that the Special Unit has Max.

Max is locked in a white room, and we see the Deputy Fisher is really Agent Pierce.

The White Room

Synopsis: - Day 1 - April 21 (Day after MTTM)(whole epi in one day) (DTM)
Max is in the White Room, and Pierce starts interogating him over the intercom and has his staff doing medical tests.

Liz wants to go to Sheriff Valenti for help, but Tess convinces Michael and Isabel to try their powers instead.

Pierce reveals himself to Max, who realizes he is Deputy Fisher. Pierce tells Max his skeleton, organs, and everything is human, except his blood, which is not human. He starts to question Max, but Max doesn't know the answers, so Pierce drugs him to get what he wants.

Isabel uses her powers to dreamwalk Max, and discovers where he is being held - at Eagle Rock Military Base. Liz still wants to go to Valenti, but Michael and Tess are sure they can handle getting Max back.

Michael, Isabel and Tess break into the base and start searching.

Valenti comes to see Liz, Alex and Maria at the Crashdown because he is worried about Max, and offers his help. But Liz tells him they don't know what is happening.

After he leaves, Liz wonders if they are doing the right thing and Maria suggests giving Tess, Michael and Isabel till 4PM, and then if they are not back, they should go to the Sheriff. Liz agrees.

Pierce tortures Max to get the info.

Tess, Michael and Isabel see some men taking a body down the hall, and follow, thinking it might be Max. They discover it isn't Max, and are confronted by an Agent, who turns out to be Nasedo. He chastizes them for coming, because it is dangerous, but says they can help him save Max.

4PM arrives and Liz goes to the Sheriff to get help. She tells him that Fisher is Pierce and she knows where he has Max.

Pierce tells Max that he 'pursaded' Topolsky to tell him that they have a orb, and he wants it. The Special Unit has been looking for 50 years because they have one, and know they only work when two are together.

Max tells Pierce where the orb is because he threatens to hurt or kill Liz.

Nasedo impliments his plan. He gets Michael to change his fingerprints so he can get through the security scanner. Nasedo kills an Agent, and Michael realizes he doesn't care what he has to do to survive.

Pierce has both orbs now and tells Max to make them work, but Max doesn't know how, so Pierce starts to cut him open.

Isabel dreamwalks Max and tells him to stall, and tell Pierce anything.

Max says he will make the orbs work, and Tess uses her powers to make Pierce see them glowing.

While he is distracted, Michael and Nasedo break in and get Max and the orbs. Michael gets Max out, but Nasedo stays behind to kill Pierce. But some of the Agents find the dead Agent and realize that Nasedo is a shapeshifter, and they shoot him.

Michael barely gets Max out before the place is locked down, and Valenti shows up to help, and has to shoot Pierce in the shoulder to stop him from shooting Max. Pierce and the other Agents are locked inside.

- Liz goes to Valenti for help saving Max
- Tess, Isabel, Michael, Nasedo and Valenti rescue Max

Alien
mythology:
- the alien's bone structure, organs, circulatory and pulmonary systems are human, but their blood is not
- when Nasedo kills he raises the victim's internal temperature to 180 degrees Fahrenheit
- there were 4 aliens in the 1947 crash that were captured, 2 dead, 2 alive
- one alien escaped, Nasedo, the other was held in captivity in the White Room for 3 years (it is never said what happened to the alien, but the way Pierce talked about it makes it seem like the alien died)
- Isabel can't dreamwalk people who are awake, but she is able to contact Max when he is drugged. Later, Tess tells Isabel that she can see Pierces thought when he is awake if she can just get into his mind a little
- at one point, Isabel says that Max won't let her into his mind. So is he able to block her somehow, even though he is drugged and has no powers? Or maybe this is what Pierce refers to later, that most of their powers come from the cerebral cortex. So possibly Max still has the power to block Isabel.
- Nasedo mentions that the hybrids should be able to scan information into their minds
- the aliens can't manipulate heavy atoms, like Uranium
- Nasedo's bone structure is not human because he is different from the hybrids. He can change his appearance, but not what is on the inside
- Michael is able to change his fingerprints
- Max seems to move in super-fast motion, trying to attack Pierce (is this a power, or just Max's altered perception from being drugged)
- Most of the alien's powers come from their cerebral cortex, but the Special Unit has a serum to block them
- the alien's powers are human, but they are engineered to be several thousand years ahead of humans.
- Michael complains that he doesn't know how to use his powers very well, and Nasedo says they were programmed to do it.

To escape the Special Unit, the gang decides to split up and meet at an old silver mine. Max and Liz go in the Jetta, while Valenti takes his police crusier, and Michael, Isabel, Maria, Alex and Tess are in the Jeep.

Max and Liz are shot at and run off the road. They run into the woods and are chased, and end up juming off a bridge. They hide in an old overturned van for the night. Liz kisses Max and sees what he went through.

They put his plan into action. Tess mindwarps Pierce's men, sending them away. One of the agents is at Valenti's house with Kyle and the mindwarp is interrupted, so Max is forced to knock the agent out and lock him in a closet. Kyle is concerned for his father and takes a gun.

Valenti lures Pierce to the UFO Center where Max and Michael capture him. Max questions Pierce about Nasedo while Isabel mindwarps him. She sees that Nasedo is dead, but Tess says he can't dies. She says they need to get the healing stones from River Dog and heal Nasedo.

Valenti contemplates how to deal with Pierce. He tells Michael if they turn Pierce in that it will expose their secret. But they have to do something because Pierce is a killer.

Kyle shows up at the UFO Center and releases Pierce, who he thinks is Deptuy Fisher, and gives him the gun. Valenti and Pierce shoot at each other, and Michael uses his powers on Pierce to save them. Pierce is killed.

Valenti realizes that Kyle is there and he's been shot. Max heals Kyle.

Max, Liz, Isabel, Michael, and Tess go to get Nasedo's body and take him to the pod chamber and heal him. They ask how to use the orbs, but he says they are dangerous because they might lead their enemies to them. He says he can't tell them what to do because he isn't the leader, Max is. Max tells Nasedo to pose as Pierce and take his place, to protect them.

Max, Isabel, Michael and Tess decide to use the orbs, and see a message from Max and Isabel's mother. She says Max is the beloved leader of their people, Tess is his young bride, Isabel is Max's sister and engaged to Michael, who was Max's second in command. They were killed in a conflict that enslaves their planet and were sent to Earth to be reborn as human beings. Their essence was cloned and mixed with human DNA so they can return and free their planet.

Skin And Bones

Synopsis: - Day 1 - (September 25 according to Whitaker Diary - SHP)
It is the fall, and Max is in therapy because his parents are worried about him. Presumably he is depressed and still upset from being tortured by Pierce, and because Liz left him. Instead of talking to the Dr., he is remembering himself, Michael and Valenti burning Pierce's body and burying it in the desert.

Someone is shown in the desert finding the bones and digging them up.

Nasedo, posing as Pierce, discredits the Special Unit in a Congressional Subcommittee hearing, and it is voted to be disbanded. Max, Isabel, Alex and Maria are watching it on CSPAN at the Crashdown.

A Congresswoman, Vanessa Whitaker of NM, objects , pointing out that Cadmium X was found at a murder scene, and it doesn't exist on Earth. Pierce says it was a hoax.

Max asks Maria about Liz, who has spent the whole summer in Florida with an Aunt. Maria says she isn't back yet.

Isabel tells Alex that with everything going on, she can't think about being with a guy, but then she flirts with the geologist, Grant Sorenson a moment later. He is looking for the Sheriff to turn in the bones he found in the desert.

Grant gives the bones to Valenti, and Valenti realizes they are Pierce's . He tries to stall, but the eager Deputy Hansen starts an investigation.

Michael and Tess are practicing their powers at his apartment, and Max and Isabel come to tell them that Pierce's bones were found. Michael wants to call Nasedo, but Max says no. Michael is mad at Max for not doing anything.

The police excavate the area where the bones were found and Hansen finds a pocket knife.

Michael is watching from the ridge above, and feels someone looking at him. He doesn't see anyone but we see through the eyes of the watcher who sees things in a blurry, distorted way.

Michael looks for who was watching him and finds a piece of skin in the shape of a hand, and it disolves when he touches it.

- Day 2 - (October 6 according to Whitaker Diary - SHP)
Isabel volunteers to talk to Grant to check him out.

Max sees Liz and goes to talk to her. He didn't know she was back. He tells her that he has no feeling for Tess, and he's told her that. Liz says she wants a fresh start, and has a job interview with Congresswoman Whitaker. The Congresswoman meets Liz and Max.

Michael's prints are found on the knife and Hansen brings him in for questioning. Valenti gives Michael an aliby, saying he found him and some buddies drinking in the desert a couple of months ago.

After the questioning, Michael calls Nasedo and tells him to come back, but Nasedo says don't call him again unless Max knows.

Isabel goes to talk to Grant. He says he is looking for radioactivity because there was nuclear testing in the 50s. He is making sure it is safe for a chemical plant to be built there.

Whitaker goes to Valenti asking about Pierce, and while she is there Hansen comes in with the report on the bones. The corner says they were melted, and Whitaker decides to take over the investigation. Hansen says because of the new evidence, they should bring Michael in again, and Valenti has no choice but to arrest him, with Whitaker present.

- Day 3 - (the next day) (October 7 based on Whitaker diary)(DTM)
Nasedo returns at Max's request because Whitaker is investigating the bones. Nasedo says he will have to kill all the humans involved, but Liz confronts him, and Max orders him not to kill anyone.

Nasedo says they can't let the feds find the Cadmium X on the bones or Michael will be tortured just like Max was. Whitaker moved the bones, so they have to find them.

Max has a plan. Nasedo, disguised as Pierce, distracts Whitaker, while Max and Liz search her office for the location of the bones.

Valenti talks to Michael in jail. Michael says that maybe he belongs in jail because he did kill Pierce. He admits that he is worried about what might be coming and maybe he isn't strong enough for it.

Max and Liz don't find anything in Whitaker's office, but when Max tells her more about the situation, she realizes that to test for the Cadmium X, the bones would be taken to the Particle Physics lab at the University of Las Cruces.

Max tells Nasedo the info, and he says he'll be there. We see that Nasedo is being watched by the same blurry, distorted vision that watched Michael. Nasedo finds a piece of skin, and it alarms him.

- Day 4 - (the next day) (October 8 based on Whitaker diary)((DTM)
Whitaker and the bones arrive at the lab, and Max, Isabel and Tess are there too. Isabel distracts the guard, while Max goes inside. Tess mindwarps everyone in the room, and Max uses his powers to age the bones and remove any trace of Cadmium X.

The results of the scan say that the bones are forty-two years old, and one of the techs mentions there was nuclear testing in the area at that time, 1958. That could explain the melted bones. Whitaker is still suspicious.

Later Max, Michael, Isabel, Alex, Tess and Maria are celebrating at the Crashdown. The new waitress, Courtney, flirts with Michael.

Maria mentions that Michael has avoided her all summer. He tells Maria he can't be with her because he is a soldier.

Max sees Liz and asks her if they could go back. She says no, so he touches her, giving her flashes of how they were together. She is affected, but pretends she didn't see it.

Max goes home, and Nasedo comes to his window, horribly injured. He tells Max, 'the Skins are among you', and then dies. Max tries to heal him, but can't.

Important
happenings:
- A geologist, Grant Sorensen, finds Pierce's bones where Max, Michael and Valenti buried them.
- Nasedo, posing as Pierce, discredits the Special Unit at a congressional hearing
- Deputy Hansen finds Michael's pocket knife at the site where the body was buried
- Michael is watching the police and feels someone watching him. We see him through distorted, blurry vision. He finds a piece of skin in the shape of a hand
- Liz tells Max she wants to make a fresh start, and she has a job interview with Congresswoman Whitaker
- Michael's prints are found on the knife, and he is questioned by Valenti, who gives him an aliby
- Isabel talks to Grant to see if he is who he says he is
- The corner says the bones were melted, and Valenti has no choice but to arrest Michael
- Whitaker takes over the investigation of the bones, and moves them
- Max and Liz figure out where the bones are, and Max has a plan to throw suspicion off Michael.
- Nasedo also finds a piece of skin, and becomes alarmed. We see him through the same distorted, blurry vision.
- Max ages the bones and removes the Cadmium X, so the report shows they are forty-two years old, and were most likely in an area with nuclear testing. But Whitaker is still suspicious.
- A new waitress at the Crashdown, Courtney, flirts with Michael
- Max asks Liz if they can go back, and give her a vision of them together
- Nasedo comes to Max's window, horribly injured, and tells him, 'the Skins are among you', and dies in Max's arms. Max is unable to heal him.

Alien
mythology:
- Cadmium X is produced as an after effect of Michael and Nasedo using their powers. (possibly all the aliens)
- Nasedo mentions the Royal Four and says that Max is a King for the first time in the series
- the evil aliens are called the Skins, they shed pieces of skin, have blurry, distorted vision, and they have powers too

Dates
mentioned:
none, but in the SHP in Whitaker's diary, she mentions on Sept 29th that she is heading to Roswell. Oct 6th some bones are found, and the Sheriff seems reluctant to investigate. And on Oct 7th, she mortally wounds Nasedo.

On October 8 Maria mentions that their school starts on Monday - so it looks like school in Roswell starts really late in the year - either that or Whitaker was on drugs when she wrote the date in her diary.

In the epi 'Summer of '47', which most likely takes place on Oct 26th, Michael's history teacher says school has been going for a month, setting the start of school in mid to late September. A much more likely date for school to begin.

Additional Info: - Max, Michael and Valenti burned Pierce's body and buried him 30 miles NE of Roswell near the old Clovis Hwy
- Liz mentions that the opportunity to work for Whitaker came out of the blue
- Liz says Whitaker is a hero to her
- Maria says Michael has avoided her all summer and asks if he is going to be with Isabel, but he says no

Ask Not

Synopsis: - Day 1 - (the same day as the end of S&B) (October 8 based on Whitaker diary)
The gang, minus Max, is having a party at the Crashdown. Max is running through the streets of Roswell to get to them. He bursts inside and says that Nasedo is dead and an alien killed him, a Skin.

Max, Isabel, Michael and Tess take Nasedo's body to the pod chamber and try to heal him, but can't. The body disentigrates into dust.

- Day 2 - (the next day) (October 9 based on Whitaker diary) ((DTM)
Kyle arrives back from football camp but the Sheriff is late picking him up. He tells Kyle that Nasedo was murdered.

At school, Michael complains to Isabel that Max isn't taking any action, but Isabel says to stop putting her in the middle.

We see that Max is being watched through blurry, hazy vision and he senses it. He tries to see who it is and follows someone into a closet, only to find a welder.

In History class, Max is learning about JFK and the Cuban Missle Crisis, which has parallels to his own situation. A new leader with little experience being thrown into the deep end, so to speak

Max goes to work and meets Brody Davis, who tells him he is the new owner of the UFO Center. He says he bought it from Milton and is making some changes. He tells Max to go home and not mention to anyone what he saw.

On the way home, he finds Tess in the park. He is reluctant to talk to her, but it seems she can sense him. She is depressed about losing Nasedo.

Liz and Maria are driving through town and Maria says it is only a matter of time before Liz goes back to Max. Then they see Max and Tess walking together. Liz is devistated.

Max and Tess talk about their past life, and she says she remembers images, feelings and impressions. She tells Max she can help him remember and he reluctantly agrees. Tess touches him, trying to seduce him, but he moves her hand, saying he doesn't remember her.

They hear a noise inside her house and they chase someone out the back door, and find a piece of skin. Max takes Tess to Valenti's house.

- Day 3 - (the next day) (October 10 based on Whitaker diary) ((DTM)
Kyle wakes up to find Tess asleep on the sofa.

At work, Liz feels sorry for Whitaker, who is wondering about Pierce. Liz tells her he left a message and is never coming back.

Max is still learning about JFK in school. The teachers says that even though he was unsure 'right or wrong, Kenedy had to act'.

At the UFO Center, Max decides to check out the strange new owner's locked office. Inside he finds a bunch of computer equipment that says a pulse was detected in Roswell on May 14th. This is the day the orb was activated. He also finds a chevron-shaped device. Brody catches him and fires him.

Liz hears Whitaker shredding things and finds her in her office drinking and destroying the alien files. She says she is getting rid of Pierce from her life. She asks if Liz was ever in love and what happened. Liz tells her she left him because of a woman from his past, Tess. When Liz leaves Whitaker was only pretending to be drunk to get the name from Liz.

Kyle finds Tess in his room and she has discovered he is into Buddhism, and he says he is in need of peace of mind.

Max tells Isabel and Michael about the pentagram device he found in Brody's office, and that it was definately alien. Michael suspects that Brody killed Milton. Max says they should get Valenti to investigate, but Michael wants to break into the UFO Center and take the pentagram.

So of course, Michael breaks in that night. Brody is holding the pentagram device and it shoots out a pulse of energy that throws Michael across the room. Michael goes to Max and Isabel and she decides that Brody is an evil alien, and they have to kill him.

- Day 4 - (most likely the next day) (October 11 based on Whitaker diary)((DTM)
Max is in class again, wondering what to do as he learns more about JFK. Afterward he asks Maria but she doesn't know either. She tells him she and Liz saw him with Tess, and he assures her nothing is going on. Maria says he needs to do something with Liz, other than wait, and all great leaders follow their heart.

Michael, Isabel and Max go to the UFO Center meaning to kill Brody, but Max keeps remembering all the violence in their lives, and says no. He goes in by himself to talk to Brody, and finds out that Brody is not an alien but an alien abductee.

Brody says seven years ago aliens took him and cured his cancer, and he bought the pentagram from a dealer in alien artifacts. He thought it was probably fake until it sent out a pulse over the summer. He hired a team and tracked the signal to Roswell, and so moved there and bought the UFO Center to continue to investigate.

Outside Michael and Isabel are listening, and when they leave, they are being watched again.

- Day 5 - (most likely the next day) (October 12 based on Whitaker diary)((DTM)
At the Crashdown, Max and Isabel tell Alex and Tess about Brody being rich because of an internet company he started. Kyle comes in and tells Tess she can have his room while she is staying there. Courtney flirts with Michael.

Liz comes in and sees Max sitting with Tess, and goes to walk past, ignoring them. But Max stops her and tells her 'I am coming for you'.

Courtney goes into the restroom and pulls off some skin.

Surprise

Synopsis: - Day 1 - October 25
Max has arranged a surprise birthday party for Isabel at the Crashdown. She is 18. Isabel arrives all dressed up and mentions that she had other plans, a date with Grant. He arrives with her favorite sterling roses and Isabel notices her neck is bleeding. When she dabs at his wound, she gets an unintelligable flash.

Neither Max nor Diane think Grant is a suitable guy for Isabel.

Liz, working at the Congresswoman's office, is listening to a CD when Whitaker comes in. She snaps at Liz, asking where she got the CD and goes to lock a drawer. Whitaker then apologizes and tells Liz to go home. Liz mentions that she is going to a party, and Whitaker invites herself along.

While Whitaker is in the restroom, Liz breaks into the drawer she locked, and finds a CD with her name on it. Whitaker has been recording her phone calls.

Max tells Isabel that she can't let anyone else into their group, adn she says she isn't going to bow to him just because he is king. She gets another flash and sees a neon sign for Red's.

Alex, dressed as a police officer, does a striptease for Isabel, but is interrupted by her mother.

Michael is in the kitchen finishing a cake he made for the party. Courtney comes in and flirts with him. Maria sees them, and tells Courtney that Michael is taken.

Isabel asks Kyle where Tess is, and he says she went to buy her a gift.

Michael and Max agree that she shouldn't date Grant, and Michael talks to her about it. She asks if he wants her to be alone her whole life.

While everyone is singing 'Happy Birthday', she has another flash of Tess, badly beaten, running into the Crashdown, crying out for Isabel to help her. Isabel believes Tess is in danger and tells Max and Michael. Max suspects Grant because he was bleeding.

Liz comes in and tells them that Whitaker was recording her calls, and invited herself to the party. Michael wonders if Whitaker has something to do with Tess' disappearance.

Max sends Michael to check out the Congresswoman's office, while he goes to get Valenti to check out Grant. He tells Isabel to stay at the party and keep Whitaker there.

At the party Whitaker introduces herself to Isabel, and she gets another flash of Tess being run off the road near the Red's sign. Isabel gets Maria to take her out there to look for Tess.

Max and Valenti search Tess' things and find out that Grant called her.

Michael searches Whitaker's office and finds pics of Courtney.

Maria and Isabel go to the Red's sign and find Tess' car, and some skin on it, and figure she was taken. They follow some car tracks into the desert to a power station. Isabel sends Maria to get help while she goes inside to find Tess.

Max and Valenti got to search Grant's hotel room, and ask why he called Tess. Grant says he called to ask about a gift for Isabel.

Michael finds Courtney and asks about her pics and file in Whitaker's office. She tells him that Whitaker keeps tabs on her because she used to date Whitaker's step-son and they got into troule with drugs, and she promised to stay away from him.

Maria finds them together and tells him Isabel is in trouble.

Isabel finds Tess in the power plant and she is badly beaten.

Michael and Maria drive to help, and he calls Max and Valenti on the way.

Isabel tries to get Tess out but Whitaker finds them. She says she was searching for Isabel, and asks her about the Granolith. Isabel doesn't know what it is.

Whitaker is a Skin, and says she killed Nasedo to protect Isabel. In her other life, Isabel was called Vilondra and she betrayed her brother and her race and sacrificed herself, for her love.

When Isabel can't tell Whitaker about the Granolith, Whitaker attacks them. She directs electricity at Isabel and Tess, and Isabel uses her powers to deflect it back at Whitaker, killing her.

As the flakes of Skin rain around them, Max, Michael, Maria and Valenti arrive. Valenti takes Tess and Isabel tells the others that Whitaker killed Nasedo, and about the Granolith. But doesn't tell them that she supposedly betrayed her family.

Isabel walks to the pod chamber and rants, looking for answers. She throws a rock, that goes through the back of one of the pods, and she finds the granolith.

Summer Of 47'

Synopsis: (I'm going to include the names of the characters playing the parts in '47 to hopefully make it more clear who was doing what)

The dates in this epi are a lot different than given in other places. A calander in the army base, says the crash happened July 7. In the epi 'Monsters' Milton says the crash happened July 4. Also on the Silver Handprint, Betty Osorio's notebook, says the crash was on July 4.

- Day 1 - October 26 (presumably the day after 'Surprise' - because it is the first time Isabel shows the others the granolith) (DTM)

(The whole epi takes place in one day, but the story Hal tells Michael takes place over 4 days.)

Isabel takes Max, Michael and Tess to see the granolith before school. At school, Michael is rude to Maria and then Liz, telling Max only alien business is important.

Michael's history teacher confronts him, saying he is flunking his class only a month into school, and to make it up he must interview a World War 2 veteran and write a paper on it. Michael meets Hal Carver and interviews him, but they clash. Frustrated, Michael asks why Hal left Roswell, and Hal starts to tell him about the events around the crash that he witnessed.

- The past - Day 1 - July 7, 1947 (according to a calander seen on the wall) (So47) - or - July 4 (according to Betty Osorio's notebook (SHP) & Milton (M)).
Hal (Michael) was sent with his buddy, Richard Dodie (Max), 30 miles from the base to the crash stie. They can see by the wreckage that it was no craft they are familiar with. Hal finds a piece of metal that takes it's orig shape after being crushed.

A female reporter (Maria) from the Forth Worth Star Telegram tries to get a story at the site. She is there because of a rumor from a local radio station that a flying saucer crashed. The Colonel, James Cassidy (Sheriff Valenti), tells Deputy Valenti (Kyle) to take the reporter away.

Captain Sheridan Cavitt (Alex), the senior counter-intelligence officer, sends Hal and Richie to drive a truck back to the base to hanger 20.

In the present, Hal shows Michael the metal from the crash site.

Back in his story of '47, he tells of how Hal (Michael) and Richie (Max) were driving the truck. It seemed to slow down before apparently hitting someone. They got out to check and find nothing, but when Richie looks in the back, he sees two large glowing sacks.

Later in Parker's Bar, some of the customers think it is the end of the world, but the owner thinks it is a great economic opportunity for the town. Richie (Max) is upset and questioning what happened. Hal (Michael) is more clear and just wants something to fight. He goes to get more beer and meets the reporter who was at the crash site, Betty Osorio (Maria). She wants a story, and he walks away.

Cavit (Alex), warns Hal not to talk to the press.

Hal (Michael) goes to see his girlfriend (Isabel), and they discover someone watching them.

In the present at the Crashdown, Maria tells Michael she thinks he is cheating with Courtney. Michael says their lives don't mix because he is alien and she is human, but asks to borrow her car to take Hal around. Maria agrees because she never got to say goodbye to her own grandfather when he died.

Back in 1947
- The past - Day 2 - July 8, 1947 (possibly the next day) (if you go by the date in the epi) (DTM) - or July 7 or 8 (DTM) (according to Betty Osorio's notebook (SHP) & Milton (M))
Betty (Maria) asks Hal (Michael) to meet her and introduces him to Yvonne White (Liz), an army nurse, who came to Betty because she saw things that she couldn't explain. Hal won't comment and leaves.

He goes to Rosemary's (Isabel) and disovers the military police have been there searching, and Deputy Valenti (Kyle) is helping her clean up.

Hal (Michael) is angry that his girlfriend was bothered and goes to the Colonel (Sheriff Valenti) to complain. The Colonel tells him to stay away from reporters, stay on the base and concentrate on his job. Hal is given an assignment to send letters to the families of two dead men.

But he is so mad he calls Yvonne (Liz) to meet him. She says she has been transfered to London, and he suggests they talk at the airport.

She tells him she was present at the autopsy of two alien cadavers that had organs and skin unlike anything she'd ever seen. Afterwards a Colonel from Wright told her not to talk about what she saw. She is scared and just wants to get away and forget it happened.

She leaves but Hal hears her scream. When he goes to look for her, she is gone, and no one admits to seeing her.

- The past - Day 3 - July 9, 1947 (the next day) (if you go by the date in the epi) (DTM) - or July 8 or 9 (DTM) (according to Betty Osorio's notebook (SHP) & Milton (M))
Hal (Michael) tries to find out about the flight to London that Yvonne might have been on, but Dixie (Tess) tells him to drop it. He sees a confidential file about the two dead soldiers, and they have silver handprints on their chests. He goes to hanger 20 to check it out but Richie (Max) makes him leave.

So Hal goes to Betty (Maria). He tells her the two soldiers were at the crash site when they found two large sacks, and 2 glowing white figures came up to them and then there was a blinding light. They were killed by aliens, and he thinks their families should know the truth, so he gives her the file to write a story.

Later at Parker's bar, Richie (Max), prentending to be drunk, gets Hal (Michael) to tell him about the info he gave to the reporter (Maria).

- The past - Day 4 - July 10, 1947 (the next day) (So47) - or July 9 or 10 (DTM) (according to Betty Osorio's notebook (SHP) & Milton (M))
Hal (Michael) sees that the story hasn't been printed, so he tries to find Betty (Maria), but can't.

On his desk at work, he finds discharge papers. Richie (Max) has been put in charge, and tells him to sign them, or they will take things further. Richie shows him pics of him with Rosemary (Isabel), and he signs.

Hal (Michael) goes to Parker's bar and is given a message from Betty (Maria), that has a phone number and a key to a building on the army base. He tries to call her but gets her sister, who tells him that Betty died in a car crash last night.

He goes to the building on the army base, and uses the key, and goes to the morgue. Inside he finds the two large sacks. He starts taking pictures and sees two dead doctors on the floor. Two small aliens emerge and he dives behind the sacks, and realizes they are trying to protect the sacks.

He tells the aliens to save them, and distracts the guards by pulling the fire alarm.

Back in the present -
Michael asks him what was in the sacks, and Hal says there were human fetuses. Hal tells Michael he tried to help but thinks he failed. Michael shows Hal his powers, and tells him he saved him.

Michael goes to Liz and apologizes for how he treated her. Then he takes Maria to see the granolith and apologizes to her too and thanks her.

End Of The World

Synopsis:

(to distinguish between present Max and future Max, I am listing future Max as FMax.)

- The future - Day 1 - 2014 - minutes before the fall
Max and Liz run into the granolith room. There are sounds of explosions all around. Max tells Liz he doesn't want to lose her, but she says he has to go or everyone will die. He takes out a crystal and inserts it into the base of the granolith. It activates adn sucks him inside. Max and Liz reach out to touch one last time, and he disappears in a flash of light.

- The present - Day 1 Nov 22 (DTM)
Maria takes Alex and Liz to a psychic, Madame Vivian. She tells Alex he will never have a romantic relationship with Isabel. She tells Maria her relationship with Michael will end in forty-eight hours. She tells Liz, that Max is important, a leader, but he chooses to be with her, and they are happy.

At home, Liz pretends she is marrying Max, when she is interrupted by a flash of light. It is the Max from the future. At first she doesn't believe it is him, but he convinces her by telling her that Max will show up any moment to sing to her with a Mariachi band.

While Max and the band are performing, FMax tells Liz he needs her help to stop aliens from taking over the Earth. They have to change the future.

- The present - Day 2 (appears to be the next day) Nov 23 (DTM)
Michael is suspicious of Courtney, thinking she might be a government agent or an alien. Maria mentions that Courtney wants in his pants, and it gives him an idea.

FMax tells Liz why the world ended. He says they got together, and he treated Tess so badly that she left. But they needed Tess to win, so Liz has to help his younger self fall out of love with her, and get him together with Tess.

Michael gives Courtney a ride home, and goes in with her when she kisses him.

Tess complains to Kyle about Max and the other aliens, and he tells her how hot she looks. They are about to kiss when the doorbell rings. Liz has come to talk to Tess, and offers her help with Max. Tess doesn't believe Liz at first but finally Liz convinces her.

At Courtney's apartment, she is giving Michael a massage and kissing him. He sends her to take a shower so he can search the room. He finds a cabinet full of lotion.

Michael answers a knock at the door. It is Maria. He tells her he is investigating Courtney. She says she found a pic in Courtney's locker of him, Max and Isabel, and his face is circled.

Courtney comes out in a towel, and Maria assumes the worst. She leaves, and Michael goes too.

FMax and Liz are inside Whitaker's office, watching Tess sitting outside the Crashdown. They have put her there to try and get Max to notice her, and get to know her.

FMax starts telling Liz about their future together. They eloped at nineteen, going to Vegas to get married in the Elvis chapel. He says if they are successful in changing the future, she will never have that day, and he will cease to exist.

Outside, Max sits down with Tess, and something she says makes him realize that Liz set them up. He looks around and sees Liz watching and runs to confront her. Liz admits it was a setup and Max kisses her, explaining that Tess can never be her.

He asks her to go to the Gomez concert with him on Friday, but she says no. She begs him to stop, but he says he can't.

Back in Liz's room, FMax tells Liz that the night of the concert is the night they made love for the first time. He tells her that it isn't working and they have to do something before it is too late.

At the Crashdown, Alex finds Maria crying, and she tells him it is because she found him with Courtney.

Liz goes to Max's room and tells him she doesn't want to be with him. She wants to date regular boys and have a normal life, and be safe. She tells him if he loves her, he will let her go.

Max goes to the Crashdown and aska Maria for advice about Liz and the situation, and because she is mad a Michael, Maria says give Liz up.

Liz is with FMax on her balcony, crying because of the horrible things she had to say to Max. FMax thinks it worked, because he is starting to disappear.

Downstairs, Max tells Maria that he can't give Liz up, because he loves her.

FMax becomes solid again and tells Liz she has to do something else. She says she can't and begs him to go to someone else. He tells her that twenty-five minutes before he came, Michael died, and Isabel dies two weeks before that, and Liz has to find a way to stop that happening.

- The present - Day 3 - Friday - the day of the Gomez concert - (appears to be the next day) (if you go by the dates in 'Harvest' is it Friday Nov 24 - DTM)
Maria tells Liz about catching Michael and Courtney together and it gives Liz an idea. She goes to Kyle and asks for help.

Back in her room, Kyle is undressing, and Liz is doing the same in the bathroom with FMax. He tells her he thinks it is a bad plan. She asks him not to listen.

Liz goes into the bedroom, and goes over the rules with Kyle. They are just pretending and nothing is going to happen between them. He agrees and they get in bed together.

At Michael's apartment, Alex comes over and tells him off for cheating on Maria. Courtney shows up and Alex punches Michael. Michael and Courtney start to kiss and he pulls a piece of skin off her. He tries to blast her, but she jumps out a window.

Back at Liz's room, Kyle asks her what is going on but she won't tell him. Kyle mentions that they were both brought back by an alien. Liz asks if he had flashes when Max healed him, but he says no.

Max arrives and sees Liz and Kyle in bed together, and they appear to be naked. He is devistated and turns and leaves, and Liz is just as upset.

FMax seems to know what is going on even though he can't see.

(We jump back and forth from what is happening at Liz's, to where Max has gone.)
Tess finds Max sitting in the park and can see he is upset.

FMax tries to tell Liz that it is for the best, and maybe she will be happier with a human. But she tells him he is the love of her life.

Tess asks Max if he wants her to leave, and he says no.

Liz asks FMax for her wedding dance.

Tess touches Max's shoulder, and he accepts her comfort.

Liz and FMax dance, and he twirls her, and when she looks back, he is gone. The future has changed.

Dates
mentioned:
none

Max asks Liz to go to the Gomez concert on Friday. If you look closely at the tickets he bought, you can see there is a date of Oct 20-something on them. Perhaps that is the date Max purchased the tickets and not the date of the concert?

The concert couldn't have been in Oct.

Isabel's birthday was Oct 25th Wed, Summer of '47 was probably the day after, Oct 26th Thurs. So the only Friday left in Oct is the 27th. But there were at least two days between So47, so that puts the concert in Nov.

In the episode 'Harvest', Tess mentions that Max is tired because he had a rough night, supposedly referring to when he saw Liz and Kyle in bed. But, in EOTW, Max came to Liz's room on the night of the Gomez concert, a Friday. That would make the next day a Sat, and I don't think New Mexico has school on Sat. So either Max came to Liz's room on a night before Friday, or it is the following Monday.

Isabel says that yesterday was the 25th, so it must be Nov 25th, since her birthday was on Oct 25th. That puts them in school on the 26th which is a Sunday. Isabel also mentions that Congresswoman Whitaker died two weeks ago. Whitaker also died on Oct 25th, so Isabel must be a little confused, since it was a month ago.

So if you go by the dates in 'Harvest', then the Gomez concert was on Friday the 24th.

Harvest

Synopsis: - Day 1 - Nov 26 (DTM)
At school, Liz is concerned about Max because of the trick she played on him with Kyle. Michael tells Maria that Courtney is a Skin.

Max, Michael, Isabel, Tess and Maria meet to discuss it but Max is still devistated and trying to hide it.

Michael believes that Courtney must have been working with Whitaker. They see a news report that says Whitaker is dead, and they wonder how anyone knows since her body turned to dust. But the report says she died yesterday in a car crash.

Max decides to go to Liz at Whitaker's office to get answers and Max basically accuses Liz of telling someone that she died. Liz is hurt by his words, but she still helps.

Tess finds a suspicious letter from the Universal Friendship League in Whitaker's hometown, Copper Summit Arizona, about her membership being revoked. Liz calls the League, and tells them Whitaker is dead, and they hang up.

Max says they have to go to Copper Summit, while Michael stays in Roswell and looks for Courtney. Max also insists that Liz come with them because she is the only one with a connection to Whitaker.

On the drive there, Isabel remembers what Whitaker tells her about betraying her family. Isabel and Tess fall asleep and Max tells Liz he doesn't believe what he saw. But Liz remains silent.

Michael and Maria break into Courtney's house and Maria finds a Michael shrine. From the pictures, he figures out Courtney has been watching his apartment from across the street.

- Day 2 - (the next day) Nov 27 (DTM)
Max, Liz, Isabel and Tess arrive in Copper Summit and a local man asks if they are there for the harvest. He realizes they are not members of the UFL and calls ahead to warn them that strangers are coming.

Liz and Tess are left in the car together and Tess asks about her sleeping with Kyle. Liz apologizes, to Tess, saying she knows she was getting close to Kyle. Tess thinks it is no big deal that they had sex.

Max and Isabel go to the UFL building and meet T. Greer. He tells them it is a private organization for members only. Isabel asks him about the Vilondra Project, but he says he doesn't know what it is. Max says they are there to pay their respects to Whitaker's family, and he directs them.

They all go to the house, and Liz tells Whitaker's mother they came to return some of her things. Whitaker's mother, Ida Crawford, invites them in to eat. They meet Whitaker's father, Walt, and her brother, Nicholas, and Isabel seems to 'recognize' Nicholas. Ida invites them to stay at their house for the night.

Back in Roswell at Michael's apartment, Michael and Maria are watching Courtney's hideout across the street. She comes up behind them, and Michael and Maria question her.

Courtney tells them she follows Michael in a political way. She says Antar fell because Max was on the throne and Michael wouldn't betray him. Maria tells Michael that Courtney is just trying to divide them.

Michael asks Courtney about Copper Summit, and she says not to go there because it is filled with enemies.

Back in Copper Summit, Liz goes walking by herself and Max goes after her. He asks her again what happened with Kyle, and she tells him she made a mistake and slept with him.

In the Crawford house, Isabel talks to Nicholas. He says Whitaker used to tell him stories about another planet where there was a revolution.

Michael, Courtney and Maria are driving to Copper Summit to save the others, and Courtney tells them about the Skins. She says they wear husks to protect themselves from the atmosphere, but they only last 50 years, and they are dying. The harvest is a plan to save them.

- Day 3 - (the next day) Nov 28 (DTM)
Max, Liz, Isabel and Tess attend Whitaker's funeral. Isabel follows Nicholas outside to the Stage Coach Museum and into the basement. She finds the room full of chambers with replicas of the town's folk inside. Nicholas uses alien powers to knock her to the ground. When she comes to, Nicholas calls her Vilondra.

At the funeral, Liz realizes the corpse is a manequin, and she and Max see Skins pealing all around them. Everyone at the funeral is a Skin.

T. Greer uses his powers to shut them inside. He says it was convenient of the royal four to deliver themselves to them. Max tries to get them to let Liz go because she is human, but they refuse.

Greer says he remembers them from their other life, and he's waited a long time to kill them. He uses his powers, but Max puts up a shield to block him.

Nicholas tells Isabel she is safe with them and Khivar is waiting to hear they found her. He tells her she betrayed her family for her lover Khivar, and asks her about the granolith.

Max is still trying to hold off the Skins but all of them have joined in attacking him.

Isabel tries to escape Nicholas, but he is too strong, and Michael comes just in time.

Max's strength gives out and his shield drops, and the Skins move in. Courtney destroys the machine growing the husks and the Skins feel them dying and collapse, giving Max, Liz and Tess a chance to escape. Michael saves Courtney's husk.

The Skins know they will die without the husks, but Nicholas says it isn't the end.

- In her past life, Isabel betrayed her family for her lover Khivar.
- The Skins wear husks that are dying, but they were able to create new husks that will be ready soon, so they have a gathering of all the Skins for a Harvest of the husks

Wipe Out

Synopsis: - Day 1 (whole episode in one day)
Max asks Isabel why she is troubled lately and she says that she is upset from destroying a race of people, but says nothing else is wrong, missing an opportunity to tell Max the truth about Vilondra.

Kyle and Sheriff Valenti are outside Roswell fishing. Maria and Liz are returning to Roswell from an errand that Liz's father sent them on. A green pulse of light comes out of a green rod in a UFO Center billboard and covers Roswell in a green mist.

Max and Isabel are having breakfast with their mother when she disappears. Liz and Maria arrive back in Roswell to find cars left in the roads with no drivers, and items strewn around with no people. A bus arrives in town and Nicholas and Ida get off, saying they are looking for aliens.

On their way back into town Sheriff Valenti and Kyle see the green rod in the billboard and think it is vandalism and try to report it, but no one answers. Valenti tells Kyle that his new lifestyle is changing him. He doesn't hang out with friends or date any more.

Max and Isabel discover all the humans are gone. At Michael's place Courtney is trying on her new husk. Max calls and tells Michael to meet them at the Crashdown.

Liz and Maria are exploring the town and find a piece of skin.

At the Crashdown, Max, Isabel, Michael and Courtney find no one, but Liz and Maria come rushing in. Max and Liz have a moment, but don't touch. Max tells them that all the humans have disappeared. Maria and Liz tells them it was the Skins. Tess comes in and blames Courtney for leading the Skins to Roswell.

They see Nicholas and Ida coming and hide in the bathroom while Tess uses a mindwarp to conceal them. Nicholas and Ida search, and finally leave when they find no one. Tess complains of a headache and Max starts to rub her neck. Liz observes this and goes upstairs to her room. Max follows and tries to comfort her about losing her parents, but then sees her bed where he saw her with Kyle.

Courtney collapses because her husk hadn't matured fully, and the girls put her in a bath with vitamins and herbs to try and save her.

Max and Michael go to Liz's balcony to look for Skins. Max suspects that Michael is sleeping with Courtney, but Michael says they are just friends.

When Courtney starts to recover, the girls question her. She gives a non-sensical explanation that basically boils down to - the Skins have a technology that has shifted the humans to another dimension and she doesn't know what it is or if the humans can come back. And since Maria and Liz were out of town, it bought them some time.

Liz and Maria go downstairs, and a Skin attacks them. They are saved by Sheriff Valenti, who shoots the Skin, but he doesn't die and attacks and injures Valenti.

Courtney tells them how to kill the Skins, by smashing the convenient valve on their lower backs. She also tells them about Nicholas' powers. He has all their power times a thousand, and he can take thoughts and memories - a mind rape.

They decide to go to the UFO Center because it is a fallout shelter and should be safer. Max says that he, Valenti, Isabel, Michael and Tess will then take out the Skins one at a time. He excludes Kyle because he doesn't trust him, obviously because he thinks Kyle slept with Liz.

Isabel tells Max that Nicholas is after her, but won't say why. And when they are going to the UFO Center, she slips away to find Nicholas.

At the UFO Center, Courtney tells Michael that she is dying, and the only thing that can save her is the Granolith.

Kyle discovers that they can't call out of town for help, and Liz figures out that there was an electrical disturbance that started that morning when everyone disappeared. She figures if they can turn it off, maybe the other humans will return.

Valenti tells Kyle that he is proud of the man he is becoming, and apologizes for not seeing it sooner, and then he disappears.

A Skin gets in and attacks Maria, and Tess saves her. Max suggests moving to the school because it is their territory.

Kyle realizes that the energy field is coming from the green rod in the billboard, and says he will go there and try to destroy it. He defies Max's order to stick together, and Liz and Maria go with him. As they leave, Kyle sees the longing between Max and Liz and promises Max that he will take care of Liz. Max, Michael and Tess discover Courtney is gone.

Nicholas has taken Isabel prisoner and says he knew she would rejoin their side. Isabel tells Nicholas that she remembers being with him, and she came for him. She pretends to kiss him, but tries to kill him and Ida knocks her out. Nicholas says he is sick of them and wants them all dead.

In the car with Liz and Kyle, Maria expresses regrets about her life. Liz says she has to tell Max the truth about herself and Kyle because he will never know. Kyle assures her that he is Max and he will always know. Liz disappears.

Maria and Kyle arrive and figure out they need to 'blow the fuse' of the green rod by using the bumper cables to overload it. They are attacked by a Skin. Kyle kills it and then disappears.

Nicholas' soldiers find Courtney and he uses his mind rape power on her. He finds out the gang is going to the school and that Michael told her the location of the Granolith. But before Nicholas can get the location from her, she kills herself.

Max, Michael and Isabel arrive at the school to find Isabel and be caught in Nicholas' trap. Nicholas ties them up and taunts them, telling Max he puts his faith in the wrong people, like his sister Vilondra.

He asks Max where the Granolith is and starts to torture the others. Max says he will take Nicholas to it, but Nicholas tries to mind rape him. Max is semi-successful at keeping him out for a while.

Meanwhile, Maria gets the jumper cables and puts them on the green rod before she disappears, and the rod blows up and the green mist disolves.

Tess chooses that moment to fight back and makes a wall of fire that destroys all the Skins.

Back at the Crashdown all the humans have returned with no memory of being gone. Isabel goes home to see her mother, and Liz, Maria and Kyle celebrate.

Max and Tess are walking together in the park and she tells him that she was just trying to mind warp the Skins, but lost control and tapped into something completely different. Max asks if she can do it again and she says she doesn't want to.

A boy bumps into them who resembles Nicholas.

Meet The Dupes

Synopsis: - Day 1 Monday Nov 6th (DTM)
In New York, the punk versions of the pod squad rob a fruit stand. They are arguing about how they should answer an invitation to attend a summit meeting. Michael's double (Rath), Isabel's double (Lonnie) and Tess' double (Ava) want to attend, but Max's double (Zan) is wary, thinking it might be a trap. Rath argues with Zan, but Zan reminds Rath that he is the leader. Significant looks are exchanged by Rath and Lonnie and he backs down.

- Day 2 - (one week later) Monday Nov 13th (DTM)
In science class, Max and Liz learn about a star that unexpectedly exploded the week before. Liz tries to talk to Max but he avoids her.

Lonnie, Rath and Ava steal a car and head to Roswell. Ava complains that Zan should be there too, that he is part of the family. Lonnie says things change.

At the UFO Center, Brody tells Max that he has tracked a signal near Roswell and in New York, and someone is trying to make contact.

At the Crashdown, Maria tells Michael that Max want to have a meeting on Saturday. Michael says he can't because he is watching the dirt bike finals, and that makes her mad because she thought he was coming to see her sing.

She takes an order over to Brody at the UFO museum and he tries to flirt with her.

- Day 3 - (two days later) Wednesday Nov 15th (DTM)
Ava, Lonnie and Rath are planning how to approach Max about going to the summit. Ava says that it was supposed to be Zan but Rath said he could have ruled a planet but didn't want to.

- Day 4 - (possibly the next day) Thursday Nov 16th (DTM)
Isabel is jogging and Max finds her to talk. He asks her if she is Vilondra and says they've alwyas had a special bond since the pods. She doesn't answer, but says she's sorry and leaves.

Lonnie, Rath and Ava arrive in Roswell. Sheriff Valenti pulls them over and mistakes them for the kids he knows. They tell him they are dressed for a party and were going to pick up Max, but saw a weird car outside their house, so he agrees to lead them to the house to check it out.

Max is at the Crashdown and Liz tries to talk to him again, but Max says he needs time. Liz says she hopes he doesn't hate her.

While Ava watches the car, Lonnie and Rath check out Max's room. They find out he works at the UFO Museum and find a picture of Liz. Mr. Evans come in and mistakes Lonnie for Isabel while Rath hides. Lonnie explains her altered appearance by saying she is in a school play. Mr. Evans says he is glad the therapy is helping her, but concerned that it isn't helping Max. He suggests some sessions with them together to work on what has come between them. After he leaves, Lonnie tells Rath that she thinks that is the way to get to Max.

At the UFO Museum, Maria confronts Brody about a hundred dollar tip he gave her and he asks her to have lunch with him.

- Day 5 - (possibly the next day) Friday Nov 17th (DTM)
At school, Rath finds Liz and kisses her

- Day 6 - (possibly the next day) Saturday Nov 18th (DTM)
At the UFO Center Max is having his meeting with Liz, Maria, Michael, Isabel and Tess. He tells them he has been haunted by the star that died, and he thinks it means something and they should be prepared.

The dupes are above on the stairs watching. Alex comes to the meeting late, and he sees Ava, Lonnie and Rath, who he mistakes for his friends, but then sees the real ones down below.

The dupes come in and they figure out that they must be from the other set of pods. They say their fourth, Zan, died in an accident.

Rath asks to talk to Max and tells him about the summit with the ruling families of the five planets and Max needs to represent their world. Max asks why they weren't contacted and Rath says they didn't know there were two sets of pods, and they found the New York set first.

Michael asks Lonnie why there are two sets of pods and she says they made one set, but they wer too human, so they made another, and set both sets to Earth, just in case.

Isabel asks Lonnie about Vilondra, and Lonnie confirms that Vilondra betrayed her family and got everyone killed. Isabel says she hasn't been able to tell Max about it.

Max tells Rath he doesn't know what the war was about, and Rath says it was about them, the original Royal Four. There was revolution and they were all killed and sent to Earth to be reborn. Since then there has been war, but now they want peace. Rath says the chance to bring peace meant a lot to Zan. Max says he isn't Zan. Rath says without Max there is no summit and no peace and millions of lives are at stake.

Max tells Michael, Isabel and Tess that the dupes want him to go to a summit, but he said no. Rath tells Lonnie that he still thinks he can get Max to go. Lonnie tells him to be careful because if Max doesn't go they are stuck on Earth for the rest of their lives.

- Day 7 - (appears to be the next day) Sunday Nov 19th (DTM)
They have been at the musuem all night talking and the sun is coming up.

Liz tries to tell Maria about what happened with herself and Kyle, but is so vague, that Maria has no idea what she is talking about.

Brody comes in and gets mad that they are in his building, but Maria asks him to breakfast to distract him.

At the Crashdown, over breakfast, Brody tells her he believes that he is about to be abducted again.

Lonnie tells Rath and Ava that Max is going with them one way or another, but Ava says she doesn't want anything to do with it.

Later Lonnie goes to Max's room and 'apologizes' to him for Vilondra betraying their family. She says Vilondra was in love with Khivar and sold out her family and got everything killed.

Max confronts Isabel about what Lonnie told him, and says he can't believe he had to hear it from a stranger. They continue to argue and exchange insults until Max grabs Isabel's arm, and Michael breaks it up. Max says he is going to the summit. After he leaves, Michael and Isabel turn into Rath and Lonnie.

That night Max goes to Liz and returns a Christmas present she gave him, a pocketknife that is engraved - Max & Liz 4-ever. He says he is still hanging on to her and what they had, and he wants to make a clean break. He tells her he is going to the summit with Tess, and doesn't know if he is coming back. Liz tells him the Granolith is powerful and dangerous if it falls into the wrong hands. Max asks how she knows, and she says she can't tell him, he just has to trust her. He tells her that is the problem.

Tess and Max arrive at the car to leave with Ava, Lonnie and Rath. Ava remembers what happened to Zan, Rath pushed him in front of a truck, and decides not to go with them.

Rath grabs her and tries to force her back but Max steps in, and Rath has to let her go. Ava stays in Roswell while the others get into the car and drive away.

Max In The City

Synopsis: - Day 1 - (two days later) Tuesday Nov 21 (DTM)
In New York, Max and Tess are doing the tourist thing. Max is nervous about the summit but Tess reassures him he will be fine.

Meanwhile Lonnie and Rath are meeting with Nicholas who says they have to get Max to the summit and get the granolith or they are not going home. He also says they are the rejects and the Roswell set are the real royal four because they got the granolith

Lonnie and Rath take Max and Tess to their home, a tunnel in the subway, that they call the sewer. They say there were born there and have lived there. Tess asks why they were put in the sewer and Lonnie says they are asking too many questions.

Rath hits a ball at Tess and Max defends her. He asks about the summit but Lonnie and Rath change the subject. They say Max has to meet the emissary to prove he is the real king.

In Roswell, Isabel tells Michael there has been no word from Max for two days. Their parents think he has gone camping and doesn't want to spend Thanksgiving with his family. Michael thinks it is because of Liz.

Maria tells Liz there is a rumor that Liz slept with Kyle. Liz says it is true, and Maria is upset that Liz didn't tell her.

That night Liz finds Ava sleeping in the alley behind the Crashdown.

- Day 2 - Thursday, Nov 23rd, Thanksgiving (DTM)
Rath takes Max to see the emissary who tests Max by sending a burst of light through his head that reveals the royal seal. He calls Max highness and it starts to sink in for Max.

Rath explains that the emissary is on another planet and reaches out with his mind to take control of a human and use his body.

At 3:12 that morning, Liz tells Maria about Future Max.

- Day 3 - Friday, Nov 24th (OTM)
Maria takes Brody his usual order but he is gone. We see him in New York.

Rath explains to Max and Tess about the royal seal that is stenciled in Max's head. He says that the five points of light represent the four worlds of their star system, and the bottom one represents their home. Rath says that the other four worlds are sending representatives to the summit by possessing humans.

Tess asks why they don't come in person and Rath mocks her saying no one is coming to Earth unless Max cuts a deal at the summit and they can go home. They tell him their people hate Khivar, the man who took Zan's throne. Khivar is desperate to end the war and will even let them come home.

Max and Tess asks about Michael, Isabel and Ava, and Lonnie tells them that the royal four are expected back, not all seven.

Lonnie also says at the summit, they might bring up the granolith, a religious icon like the holy grail, and if he has it, it would be a good bargaining point. Max says he's never heard of it.

Late at night, Ava is staying at the Crashdown and wakes up screaming, having nightmares about Zan's death. Liz tries to comfort her.

- Day 4 - (the next day) Saturday, Nov 25th (OTM)
Liz and Ava have been talking all night about Zan. She says he never loved her and was waiting for someone else. She asks how Liz found out about Max, and Liz tells her how she was shot and dying and Max brought her back. Ava has a strange reaction to her story.

Max calls Isabel and asks about Thanksgiving. Isabel says she and their mother cried all day. He says how would she feel about going home, and to ask Michael too. He tells her she should have apologized to him when he confronted her, but doesn't give her a chance to respond.

From that, Isabel figures out that Lonnie impersonated her and tricked Max into going to the summit. Isabel and Michael interogate Ava, trying to find out what Lonnie was doing. Ava won't talk until Liz begs her to help save Max. Ava tells them that Lonnie and Rath killed Zan and they are going to kill Max too.

Max, Tess, Lonnie and Rath are headed to the summit. Rath calls Tess a retard, and Max defends her. Lonnie tells Max she is proud of him.

Inside they meet the other representatives and one of them is using Brody's body. Nicholas comes in and says he represents Khivar who speaks for their world. Lonnie and Rath are surprised to see that Max knows Nicholas.

Isabel, Michael and Liz are trying to think of a way to save Max. Liz tells Isabel to try and contact him with her mind.

At the summit, everyone is looking to Max for a solution for 50 years of war. Nicholas tells them Khivar has a plan. Max gives them the granolith, and comes home to be king in name only. Khivar will still have all the power. Max tells his supporters to stop fighting and support the government.

The leaders of the other planets are suprised to hear the granolith is gone.

Max takes time to think about the deal. Tess says she suports him no matter what because she knows he was a great man, a great king and a great husband.

Lonnie meets with Nicholas. She says she isn't like the others and she remembers their world and what it was like to be Vilondra and she wants that back.

She says Max will take the deal. Nicholas says if he does take the deal Khivar will have him publically executed. If he doesn't take the deal, Khivar wants him dead anyway. Lonnie says she can arrange that.

Nicholas says if she does, he will take her home but not Rath. Lonnie agrees.

Back in Roswell, Isable can't contact Max. Ava says Liz can do it because when Max brought her back, he changed her.

Lonnie tries to talk Max into making the deal because she claims it will save lives.

Isabel helps Liz to make a connection to Max. Isabel tells Liz that no matter what Max will always hear her.

At the summit, Max tells the leaders he won't make the deal because he won't give up the granolith. Nicholas blames Max for there being no peace. Kathana tells Max he has made enemies, and Nicholas says Max died because he made bad decisions.

Larek stays to talk to Max. He says their families were close and he and Zan practically grew up together. Larek attended Zan's father's funeral, Zan's coronation and his wedding. He says Zan tried to make changes too fast and that is why he fell.

After the summit, Max, Lonnie, Rath and Tess are walking down a street. Liz suddenly appears and sees Rath grab Tess and Lonnie trying to drop a window washer's scafold on Max. Liz yells soundlessly and motions to Max to move, and he steps out of the way just in time and it crashes behind him.

Max turns to see that he was almost killed and then notices Liz and Tess are gone. He searches for Tess and finds her. She says Lonnie and Rath tried to get the location of the granolith out of her, but she fought back and doesn't know what happened to them.

- Day 5 - (possibly the next day) Sunday Nov 26th (DTM)
Max is back in Roswell and tells Isabel he was going to take the deal, but knew he would have to leave her and Michael behind and couldn't do it. He says she is his sister and that comes first.

Liz says goodbye to Ava, who leaves. Maria tells Brody that maybe he gets abducted because he is special.

Max and Liz are in her room, discussing possible changes. Max thanks her for saving her life and says he wants to be friends again. He asks her if she really slept with Kyle and she has to say yes, but it destroys her to do it.

- alien sex, accept no imitations!
- the emissary is an alien who verifies that Max is a king by checking to make sure he has the royal seal stenciled on his brain
- the royal seal has 5 points of light in a 'V' shape that represent the 5 worlds of their star system, and the bottom light represents their home world.
- aliens are able to stay on their planets and reach out with their mind to control humans like puppets. The human doesn't remember what happened and think they have been abducted. But using human bodies this way takes up huge amounts of resources

- There have been 50 years of misery and suffering on the 5 worlds. Kathana attacks Khivar. Khivar attacks Sero. Sero attacks Hanar.
- Khivar offers a solution to the war - 1) Max becomes king only in name. All real power and government remains in Kivar's hands, 2) Max calls upon his followers to lay down their weapons and support the new government, and 3) Most importantly, Max returns the granilith to Khivar
- Tess is sure that Max was a great man, a great king, and a great husband in his other life
- If Max takes the deal, Khivar will have him publically executed. If Max doesn't take the deal Khivar still wants him dead
- Khivar and Nicholas used the summit as a chance to discredit and blame Max
- In Max's other life, Larek's family and Zan's family were very close and Zan and Larek were friends and practically grew up together. Larek attend Zan's father's funeral, his coronation and his wedding.
- Zan tried to make changes too fast, tried to do too much too soon, and it led to his fall and Khivar taking his throne
- Nicholas says that in this life and the last, Max listened to the wrong people and made bad decisions
- Tess claims that when Lonnie and Rath took her that they tried to get the location of the granolith out of her head, but she fought them off, and doesn't know what happened to them.

Dates
mentioned:
- Isabel mentions that Max was gone over Thanksgiving
(this isn't possible however if you check other dates in the show. In 'Harvest' the TV announcer says that Congresswoman Whitaker died on Nov 25th. That is two days after Thanksgiving took place that year, and at least a few weeks before 'Max in the City' took place. If you go strickly by days shown in the episodes, it has to be at least the middle of Dec. lol)
Maybe the Evans celebrate Thanksgiving really late?

Also in the epi, 'OTM' it says that the summit takes place on Nov 25th, the same day the congresswoman died.

(the days are really unclear on MITC. there are a lot of extra days, and the dates aren't explained at all. I made some guesses about which days things took place, but there is obviously a lot of wiggle room.

The Summit took place Nov 25 according to OTM. The Dupes met the pod squad at the UFO Center on the Sat before thanksgiving, making it Sat the 18th. Max and Tess were in New York two days after leaving Roswell. other than that, it is up for interpertation.)

(Although there it no proof, I am guessing that these two events took place on Thursday, Thanksgiving. It doesn't seem likely that Rath would wait 2 days after going to the emissary to to explain about the royal seal. It also doesn't seem likely that Liz would wait 2 days after lying to Maria about FM to tell her the truth.)

Additional
Info:
- Nicholas hates New York for some reason we are never told. He calls it an open sewer and a stupid, rat-infested, urine-soaked, butt ugly town.
- Max tells the people at the summit that he refuses Khivar's deal because he won't give up the granolith. But he tells Isabel that he refused the deal because he wouldn't leave her and Michael behind on Earth. So which is it?

A Roswell Christmas Carol

Synopsis: - Day 1 - Dec 21st (DTM)
Max and Michael are Christmas tree shopping, guided by Isabel's strict specifications. This time of year she becomes the Christmas Nazi, making everyone around her miserable while trying to have the perfect Christmas.

Michael is worried about getting Maria a gift. Max and Michael see a man get hit by a car while trying to save his daughter. Max can't heal him because too many people are around.

- Day 2 - (the next day) Dec 22nd
It is reported in the paper that the man died, and Max sees his ghost, who blames Max for not healing him.

At the Crashdown, Michael asks Maria for some extra time to exchange gifts, but Maria is adamant it be on Christmas.

She takes Brody his lunch order, but he is distant and pre-occupied and says he will be away a few days

Kyle and Jim are watching football when Tess comes in from shopping. She asks if they celebrate Christmas and is disappointed to hear they don't.

Michael asks Isabel for advice on getting Maria a gift. She says it should be thoughtful and personal.

That night Maria is caroling outside the dead man's house, and Max is watching. The ghost appears to Max and Max tells him he will watch over his family. The ghost says they will never be okay because they lost their father.

Upset, Max goes to Liz, needing a friend.

Maria's caroling group goes to the house of a 5 year old with cancer and is surprised to find it is Brody's house.

Max tells Liz about the accident and how guily he feels about not saving the man. Liz says it isn't his fault, and he would have exposed himself and the others if he had. Max says he didn't save the man because he was worried about being put in the White Room again. He says the man is haunting him and he has to restore the balance.

- Day 3 - (the next day) Dec 23rd (DTM)
Maria visits Brody and finds out that his daughter, Sydney, has inoperable bone marrow cancer. Maria offers to help.

At Michael's house, he shows Isabel his idea of a gift for Maria, a Jetta bumper. Isabel says it isn't acceptible and to try again, and she leaves some gifts there to pick up later.

At the grocery store, the Valenti's and Tess run into Amy Deluca. She makes a big deal about how it is a special Christmas because they have a new member of the family.

At the Christmas pageant, Maria tells Liz about Brody and his daughter, and how she has decided to be Brody's wife and Sydney's mother. Liz says she is moving too fast, and their time together is precious and it would be better to leave them alone. Maria says it is unfair, and Christmas should be a time of miracles, and this gives Liz an idea.

Liz goes to Max and tells him about Brody and his daughter, and the ghost says he approves of the plan.

Max tells Isabel, Tess and Michael what he wants to do. The girls approve, but Michael is afraid it will expose them.

(To me this seems like it should be a different day, since they only saw Amy that morning at the store, and how could Tess have invited her to dinner for that same day and been cooking for 20 hours? But she clearly says it is the 23rd, and the day before, Michael clearly says it is 3 days to Christmas, making that the 22nd.)
Later, Tess has decorated the Valenti house for Christmas and complains she has been cooking for 20 hours and they haven't noticed, and by the way, she invited Amy for dinner who is arriving now.

That night, Max goes to Brody's house to heal Sydney, but the ghost tells him that she was taken to the hospital. Max goes to Michael to tell him where he is going and Micheal goes with him.

Everyone is enjoying dinner at the Valenti house and Kyle thanks Tess for giving them Christmas.

Max and Michael go to the hospital and Max heals Sydney, but can't leave the other kids and heals all of them in the room. Meanwhile Michael is keeping watch outside and a nurse notices the strange activity and brings security. Michael goes inside and locks them in and Max collaspses from over using his powers.

When security gets into the room, the children are up playing and Max and Michael are gone.

- Day 4 - (the next day) Dec 24th (DTM)
The Evans are watching the news about the children in the hospital being healed. Everyone is calling it a miracle.

Maria goes to Michael's house and finds the bumper he is making for her. She thanks him, and then asks about her gift. Since the bumper was her gift, Michael is desperate and looks at the gifts Isabel left in his house. One of them she bought for him to give to Maria.

That night, Max goes to Liz to thank her for telling him about Sydney. Liz tells him he can't keep healing people because maybe there is a reason for what is happening.
(kind of hypocritical of her considering he healed her and saved her life, and she asked him to heal her grandmother, and Liz herself helped change the time line. Maybe there was a reason the Earth is supposed to be taken over by evil aliens, huh Liz?)
Liz invites Max to mass, but he says he doesn't believe in god.

Max goes to the ghost's house, and he tells Max he should be with his loved ones.

At home, Max's powers are coming back. Michael takes him to Brody's house to show him how happy he is that his daughter is well.

Max goes to mass and everyone is there, Michael, Maria and Amy, Max's parents and Isabel, Kyle, Jim and Tess. Max goes and sits with Liz and takes her hand, and says he believes in her.



The dates are pretty messed up. On day two Michael mentions it is three days to Christmas, making it the 22nd.

But if you read Isabel's diary, the dates are all off. She has day two marked as the 20th, the day she is going to the dinner at the nursing home and the rehersal for the holiday pageant. Perhaps she wrote the events on the wrong day? Or maybe Michael is on drugs.

So if we ignore Michael's comment about 3 days to Christmas, we could move everything back and make the dates match with what Isabel has in her diary, and that would give us extra days to put Amy's dinner with the Valenti's on a different day than they saw her at the store. If we go with Isabel's dates, this is how it comes together.

Guest
characters:
Brody Davis - the owner of the UFO Center
Sydney Davis - Brody's five year old daughter
Ghost Dad John - the ghost who haunts Max

Important
happenings:
- Max sees a man killed by a car but can't heal him because of the witnesses.
- The man haunts Max, blaming him for letting him die and says the balance must be restored
- Max goes to Liz needing a friend and tells her about being haunted
- Maria discovers that Brody's daughter, Sydney, is dying of cancer and tells Liz, who tells Max, and the ghost approves of the plan for Max to heal her

- Max and Michael go to the hospital so he can heal Sydney and Max heals all the kids in the room
- The ghosts tells Max he should be with his loved ones on Christmas, so Max goes to mass

Alien
mythology:
- Max is haunted by the ghost of a man who he saw hit by a car. He didn't heal the man because there were too many witnesses. The man says Max can't get rid of him because the balance must be restored. Possibly Max's alien balance is messed up, and that is why he is haunted.
- Max uses his healing power so much that he is exhausted and collaspes, and it takes several hours, for his power to return.

Dates
mentioned:
The first day, Michale says it is 3 days to Christmas, so the 22nd, and the next day Tess says she saw a break in the NFL schedule between the 22nd and the 24th, so obviously it is the 23rd.

Additional
Info:
- Michael didn't give Maria a gift last Christmas, their first one together
- The Valenti's don't really celebrate Christmas. They leave their plastic Christmas tree in the garage and Kyle uses it to dry his socks, and they eat Christmas dinner at the Crashdown, turkey, all-you-can-eat for $7.95.
- The Holiday Pageant is the 23rd annual pageant in Roswell
- Amy and Jim have always known each other but were officially introduced when Jim nearly ran over Amy and her boyfriend Curt when they were laying on a mesa. They met again when she was 18 and he arrested her - at a protest over demolishing a native american building. The thrid time they met, he saved her from a burning building.

At the Crashdown Liz confesses to Maria that she is obsessed with Max. Maria's cousin Sean comes in and she is less than glad to see him. He is just out of juvie and says he is staying with them for a while, and flirts with Liz.

Max finds Grant in their kitchen, who is there to take out Isabel. Max tells Isabel to cancel with everything happening, but she says she wants something normal.

At the Valenti house, Kyle is checking to see if he has powers by trying to change the TV channel. Tess sees him and uses the remote to change the channels behind him. He is fooled for a moment until he sees her.

Isabel and Grant are at the movies and she falls asleep and has another vision of the kidnapped girl being taken and drugged. Again she and Max go to Valenti and tell him that the girl has a silver car.

Valenti runs into an old school friend, Judith Foster, who says her daughter, Melissa, hasn't called her from a trip she is on. Valenti finds out she has a silver car and believes she might be the girl in Isabel's vision.

Valenti has a full search going for Melissa and shows her picture to Isabel. She isn't sure if it is the kidnapped girl, but believes it must be.

At the Crashdown, Maria lays down some lays for Sean, including leaving Liz alone becasue she is fragile.

Isabel takes a nap and sees the girl again, and this time sees that it is Grant who took her. Max and Isabel go to the Sheriff again and he goes to a judge to get a warrant, but is deined. Valenti goes and searches his stuff anyway. He finds a body bag but Grant has an explanation and says he was in Carlsbad.

Back at his office, Dan asks Valenti for an explanation of his actions. He says the State Police Board has been watching him. He disappears for days, hangs out with kids, has a reputation for chasing UFOs, and his men are talking about him. While they are arguing, the girl they are searching for, Melissa, comes in unhurt. Her car broke down, she wasn't kidnapped.

Valenti tells Isabel and Max and she apologizes for being wrong.

Valenti gets chewed out by Dan and the judge. They demand the names of the witnesses he said saw Grant take the girl, but he refuses.

At home, Max is chewing out Isabel, telling her that Valenti could lose his job because of her. She says she knows and is sorry. Max says he still believes in her.

At the Crashdown, Kyle is talking to Liz when Sean comes in. Maria says they are closed, but Liz offers to make Sean some fries, completely ignoring Kyle. Maria asks Liz if she is interested in Sean, but Liz says no.

Again Isabel dreams of the kidnapped girl, and this time she sees where she was taken.

Dan tells Valenti that the Fosters are filing a grievance with the State Police Board to look into his actions concerning his actions. Valenti gets a call from Max who tells him the kidnapped girl is in the woods and they are going to get her. Valenti tells them he will meet them. Dan is suspicous of the call and tells Valenti that his father ruined his career the same way, but not listening to his friends.

Valenti, Max and Isabel go to the woods and find a hose buried in the ground connected to some air tanks, and follow the hose to the buried girl. They start to dig her up and the kidnapper starts shooting at them. Max uses his shield to protect them, and Valenti shoots at him.

Dan followed Valenti and questions how he was able to find the girl and why Max and Isabel are there.

But only one person in 50 million has the genetic flaw needed for the ganderiun to work, and that is why they are going after Laurie, because she has the flaw. If they infect Laurie it will make a virus that will infect and kill everyone on Earth.

The queen is the only one who can infect a host so if they find and kill her the rest of the hive will die. They decide to call Kyle and Alex and go to the woods and look for more crystals.

At the UFO Center Isabel is looking for the saw, and is grabbed by the kidnapper, who turns out to be Grant. She wakes up in a car with him and he is rambling. He tells her he has been shot, has memory loss and doesn't know why he is driving to Tucson. He says it started last summer when he was digging near Pohlman Ranch and found some strange crystals.

Isabel figures out he is being possessed by the ganderium queen. He says he is supposed to kill her but doesn't want to, so he gives her a cell phone and drops her by the side of the road. Isabel calls Valenti and tells him Grant is the kidnapper and he is going to Tucson to get Laurie.

In the cave, Kyle puts a crystal in a bottle with a match, seals it and the crystal dies. He tells Liz, who figures out the crystals need oxygen to live.

At the Dupree house, Michael and Maria are living it up, when Max calls to tell them how to kill the crystals.

Valenti tells Duff that Grant is going to Tucson and they need a plane to get there ahead of him. He tells her she may see things she can't explain and won't want to report.

Back at the Dupree's, Laurie, Michael and Maria are having dinner. Bobby and Meridith are going out and remind them it is the staff's night off. Michael goes looking for Carmen, the maid and finds her dead. He tells Maria and Laurie to hide while he goes looking for the killer, and gets shot by Grant.

Maria and Laurie go to the shelter and Grant grabs Laurie, but Valenti and Duff arrive to help. Grant says he wants to stop but can't and they have to kill him. Duff shoots and kills him and his chest opens and the ganderium queen emerges. Michael seals it in the shelter and uses his powers to suck the air from the room, killing it.

On her way home, Liz sees Sean and tells him her life is falling apart. He asks if she wants to go somewhere, and she says yes. He takes her to the bowling alley where he used to work and shows her how to bowl. He tells her she isn't getting what she needs from Max and she is suffocating, and shows her how to lanewalk.

He remembers there are 3 moons, burnt orange, and no clouds. The 'water' is red and has a texture more like jello. He also remembers that in their other life, he and Tess first kissed at a party.
- Tess says most of her memories are blurry but some are clearer and more real than anything on Earth, like when Max would reach and touch her at night and how he would hold her. She remembers their first kiss too, and says she leaned in to him, whispered in his ear as she touched his face, and they just kissed.

Cry Your Name

Synopsis: - Maria's recap - (the second one)
This recap explains things that have happened bewteen this and the last episode
- Kyle realized his feelings for Tess are sisterly not sex kitten
- Max and Liz broke up, and Max and Tess kissed
- Alex and Isabel got back together

- Day 1 April 29th
Maria and Liz are at Alex's house, and he is on the phone with Isabel. She invites him to come out with her, but Maria and Liz convince him to stay at home so Isabel will be chasing him for a change.

After the girls leave, Alex gets a delivery order of Thai food and has a weird moment, saying 'everything is a lie'. He goes to his room and looks at the picture of Leanna.

Jim Valenti is driving and comes across a fatal accident, and asks if it is anyone he knows. It is.

The gang is at the Crashdown hanging out, when Valenti comes in and tells them that Alex died.

They all go to the morgue and Valenti distracts the attendants while Max tries to heal Alex. Isabel is hopeful until Max comes out alone. He was unable to do anything. Isabel finally realizes Alex is gone and runs off. Tess tells Max to go after her, but he turns to Liz, who says the same thing.

- Day 2 (next day) April 30th
Valenti tells Kyle to always remember that Alex died the day before, and not that day, his birthday.

Alex walks into the Crashdown, and Isabel is so relieved it was all a mistake, but she is dreaming and wakes up, to realize he is really gone.

Sean calls the Deluca house, and Michael answers and tells him the news. Sean is out of town on legal trouble for a few days and asks Michael to take care of his family.

Max calls to talk to Liz, but her mother says she isn't at home, and she isn't doing well.

Liz is at the impound lot where Alex's car was taken. She searches it and finds a photo of him and Leanna that he has torn his head off.

At the hospital, Valenti and Hansen interview the guy who was driving the truck that Alex's car hit, and he says Alex delibertly drove at him.

Isabel blames herself for Alex's death because she thinks he was coming to meet her. Her mother tries to comfort her.

At school, Liz shows Michael and Maria the photo she found in the car. Maria freaks out but Liz tells them she thinks it means something.

Valenti interviews the Thai food delivery guy, who says Alex was depressed. Hansen tells Valenti that some of Alex's teachers believe there may have been signs of depression.

The students at school are making a shrine to Alex in the football field. Under the bleachers, Max tells Tess how terrible it was to try and save Alex. Michael, Maria, Kyle and Isabel join them. Maria is mad that the students are mourning for Alex when they didn't give a crap about him when he was alive.

Kyle says that Alex's father called and asked if the boys would be pall bearers. Isabel reveals that she will graduate early and go to school in San Francisco.

The guy who delivered Alex's food, is telling his story to a group of students on the field. Liz breaks up the group, asks him what happened, and tells him to contact her if he remembers anything else.

At the Valenti house, Liz shows the photo she found in Alex's car to Valenti who tells her it looks like Alex killed himself. Liz won't believe it and goes to Max. She tells him what Valenti said and Max says he will talk to Valenti and straighten it out.

Amy thanks Michael for taking care of her and Maria, and for loving Maria. Isabel dreams of Alex again, and says goodbye.

Max and Liz talk about Alex, and she tells him she saw him kiss Tess at the prom, and it's okay. They are both moving on, but she asks him to always be her friend.

- Day 3 (next day) May 1st
Alex's funeral

Maria sings 'Amazing Grace'. The guys are pall bearers, and they all put flowers on Alex's grave. Afterward, Max confronts Valenti about determining Alex killed himself, and Valenti shows Max the file on Alex.

At the reception at Alex's house, Liz talks to Mr. Whitman and asks to sit in Alex's room. While she is in there, she finds concert tickets stuck in a book, marking a poem.

Liz gathers everyone in Alex's room and tells them Valenti is going to call Alex's death a suicide. Everyone is shocked, except Max who thinks it is possible because of the file he read.

But Liz has proof Alex didn't kill himself. The concert tickets were purchased the day he died. She points out that you don't make plans for a future you are not planning on having.

Tess says it is slim evidence, but Michael says they all know Alex would never do that, and it was just an accident. Liz tells them she believes he was murdered, and Kyle agrees that something just isn't right.

Liz says Alex was a part of their conspiracy and maybe it was an alien who killed him. They know of one alien, Khivar, who might not like Alex and Isabel getting close, and maybe he was killed to keep him away from her.

Max and Isabel refuse to listen, telling Liz she doesn't know what she is talking about, and the aliens leave. Liz tells Maria and Kyle that she is going to keep investigating.

Later, at the Crashdown, Liz is looking at pics and remembering Alex, when the Thai restaurant delivery guy shows up. He has a credit card receipt from the night Alex died that he signed in binary code, giving Liz another clue and making her believe even more in her cause.

Important
happenings:
- Alex died in a suspicious car crash
- Isabel decides to graduate early and go to college in San Francisco
- Liz is sure Alex was murdered and vows to investigate
- Max refuses to listen to Liz and her theories about Alex's death and they fight
- Jerry the delivery guy, gives Liz a receipt that Alex signed with binary code
Alien
mythology:
- Max can't bring someone back from the dead (just saying)

Dates
mentioned:
- the date of Alex's death is on his gravestone April 29th
- Valenti tells Kyle to always remember that Alex died the day before his birthday
- When Kyle tells the others that Mr. Whitman wants them to be pall bearers, he says the funeral is the next day
- Liz says the tickets Alex bought for the Beth Orton concert are for the same day as the funeral, which is May 1st. The date on the tickets is May 5th.

The dates in this are a bit messed up. Alex's gravestone is seen in the episode 'Departure' and lists Alex's death date as April 29th.

According to dialog in the show, and what the characters were wearing, the episode happened in 3 days, making his funeral May 1st.

It seems odd to me that Liz, Maria, Isabel and the others went to school the day after Alex died, but that is what the show says. And if his funeral was on May 1st, they got his body processed and the ceremony organized very quickly, especially when Valenti and Hansen seem to still be investigating. (do they allow funerals when a cause of death is still to be determined? - I have no idea).

Liz finds the concert tickets Alex bought and she says the concert is on the same day as the funeral. The date on the tickets is May 5th, which seems a more likely date for the funeral.

Additional
Info:
- Kyle's birthday is April 30th, the day after Alex died
- Alex once played a prank on Mr. Hoffman at school, he electrified his chair
- Liz knows with every fiber of her being that Alex's death wasn't an accident and he didn't kill himself. And she owes it to her friend to investigate.
- And I've just gotta say, it is pretty hypocritical of Max to yell at Liz that she doesn't know what she is talking about and that she doesn't know anything about Khivar. Max doesn't know any more about his past or Khivar than Liz does. Jerk.

- Day 1
Liz and Maria are gathering info in Alex's room to put together a yearbook spread. Liz finds a condolence card from the family he stayed with in Sweden, the Olsens. Liz is looking for clues to Alex's death, but Maria isn't sure they should. Liz finds a locked file on his computer that says 'Leanna is not Leanna' over and over.

- Day 2 (possibly the next day)
Liz asks a guy at school about the binary code that Alex signed the delivery food receipt with, but the guy has no idea what it is. Max tells Liz that she is endangering them with her investigation, and he doesn't believe she is right about Alex.

Liz is trying to convince Maria that something isn't right when Michael interrupts them. Liz leaves and Michael tells Maria to get Liz to stop, and even if Liz is right it just puts them in danger.

Max, Michael, Isabel and Tess are talking about Liz's investigation. Max says she is obsessed. Isabel asks 'what if Liz is right', but Max dismisses it. Isabel says she has been wait-listed for school.

Later, Max and Tess are studying and Tess asks where their relationship is headed. Max says being with her scares him and he doesn't like where it could lead. Tess determines that he is scared to go home. He tells her that Earth is real to him, but their planet is just a dream.

Liz goes to Sean and asks him about breaking into the school. He helps her break in and she gets records from the guidance office about Alex's time in Sweden.

Michael and Max talk, and Michael tells him he doesn't want their leader to form opinions about what he wants to be true instead of what is really true. Max says he is starting to think Michael was right for looking for something else out there. Michael says he is thinking Max was right for thinking Earth is their home.

Liz and Sean get caught at the school, and Sean takes the blame.

Valenti tells Max about Liz and Sean, and asks him to be more careful.

Liz tries to call the number for the Olsens, the family that Alex stayed with in Sweden, but gets no answer.

- Day 3 (next day)

Liz is trying to identify a building in a photo of Alex and Leanna. She calls the Swedish embassy for help. Max overhears her and confronts her about breaking into the school, grabbing her arm. He says he will consider that Alex was killed if she will consider he killed himself. Liz says no, and to let go of her.

Tess find Max alone, depressed and she takes him to the observatory. She shows him a star that can also be seen from their planet, to show Max that their planet is real.

- Day 4 (possibly the next day)
Maria goes to Liz's house and Liz tries to tell her about the progress she is making, but Maria doesn't care. She just wants Liz to stop and be sad, but Liz can't. Maria tells her she needs to consider the lives she is ruining, like Sean.

Liz goes to apologize to Sean. She says he can't date her or hang out with her until she is finished with what she is doing.

Maria tells Michael she can't depend on him because he will leave someday.

Liz finally reaches the Olson's phone number, but it is a guy named Lynd. So she tries to track the Olson's through their credit card order for the funeral flowers, but can't. Then she goes to the bank and withdraws all her money to go to Sweden.

At school, Max talks to Isabel and offers her the choice of going to a local school instead of leaving the state. Isabel says she doesn't want that, and she will do what she wants. Max threatens her if she tries to leave that he will do anything in his power to make her stay.

Max sees Liz waiting with her luggage on the side of the road and finds out she is going to Sweden. He tells her she is being reckless and endangering them all, but Liz says she is saving all their lives. Max says if she leaves that he won't be her friend any more, and Liz tells him she will have to pay that price, and for him to wake up and see what is going on.

Michael goes to see Maria and tells her that he might have to leave someday, but he can give her today.

Max is outside the observatory, confused and depressed, when Tess finds him. He says he has lost everyone and she says she will always be there for him.

This recap explains things that have happened bewteen this and the last episode
- Liz has decided that Alex as murdered by an alien and there is a huge rift between the humans and the aliens
- Max has been preoccupied by Tess

- Day 1 (the same day as the last day of ITL&ITB)
Max and Tess wake up together after doing the nasty and Max looks grim. When Tess is home she feels her stomach happily.

Liz goes to Maria and tells her that Alex never went to Sweden and asks Maria to help with the investigation.

Max tells Isabel about him and Tess and Isabel isn't sympathetic because she is still mad about Max making her stay in Roswell and not go to college. Max says he is feeling weird about sleeping with Tess.

- Day 2 (the next day)
At school Tess is waiting for him and says they can keep it a secret for now, but Max tries to do the right thing and takes her hand in front of Michael, Isabel and Kyle.

Kyle tells Isabel that the aliens are boring and they should use their powers to have fun. He convinces her to take him on a dreamwalk to see a playboy playmate. Then Kyle tells Isabel he will help her get back at Max.

Maria goes to see the computer guy Derek, and asks him to help her find out where Alex sent an email from.

Max is very uncomfortable around Tess and she says it is a bad time for her to feel him pulling away because she is pregnant.

Liz goes to ask Tess about her powers but Max comes in and is acting like a huge ass. He starts verbally attacking Liz, he blocks the door and won't let her leave and acts like she is accusing Tess of killing Alex. Kyle comes in and says he and Tess were watching a movie when Alex died.

Later at Liz's house Maria comes in and tells Liz that she found out Alex sent the email from the dorms at the University of Las Cruces while he was supposedly in Sweden.

- Day 3 (most likely the next day)
Liz and Maria have luggage and Michael sees them and wants to know where they are going. They lie, but when Liz leaves, Michael convinces Maria to tell him the truth so he can protect them.

Kyle and Isabel change Max's yearbook picture to an alien.

Max tells Michael about sex with Tess and that she is pregnant and it only takes a month. Michael says they have to get rid of it because they don't know what it will be, but Max says he can't order Tess around.

Liz and Maria search the dorm room where Alex stayed but don't find anything. A student sees them and they ask about their friend who stayed there. The student says they must mean Ray. Ray never went out except at night to the computer building, and he ordered Thai food for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Max takes Tess to the pod chamber and tells her he will respect her decision about the baby. Tess says she is keeping it and Max is freaked. She says she can feel him pulling away and conveniently feels the baby moving, so Max can connect with it and determine they are having a son.

At the university, Liz and Maria see Nelly Furtado giving a free concert and stop to listen. They see Leanna in the crowd and follow her, but she gets away. Michael appears and wants to know what is going on.

- Day 4 (most likely the next day)
In school, Isabel and Kyle play another trick on Max, they set off a fire alarm and Isabel sticks his shoes to the ground.

Liz asks a professor about the computers at the university and he says they are code breakers. Maria finds out that Leanna is really a girl named Jennifer Coleman who is a student at the school.

Max tells Tess they should get a place together since they are having a child, but Tess says she wants to go back to their planet.

The professor helps Liz get into Alex's work and they find out he was using the computer to decode the alien language in the 'destiny book'. But the results are gone because he emailed them to Leanna/Jennifer Coleman.

Tess suddenly gets sick and Max sees there is something wrong with the baby. It can't breathe properly because the atmosphere is poisoning it.

Liz, Maria and Michael go to see Leanna, but her roommate says she left suddenly. They search her room and find a bill for a rental property. They go there and find a computer and a crystal being guarded by an alien device. Michael throws it out a window before it explodes. The translation of the 'destiny book' is on the computer and they print it out.

Tess is getting sicker and Max apologizes to her for taking her for granted.

Kyle wants to do more pranks on Max, but Isabel says it isn't making her feel better. She goes home to find Max completely losing it and crying on the ground. He tells her everything about the pregnancy and that the baby is dying.

Isabel takes him to the park and makes it snow. They apologize and Isabel says they will figure it out. Michael finds them and gives them the translation and the crystal.

- Alien babies have powers to at least make their hands glow even in the womb
- Alien babies can't survive in Earth's atmosphere, it poisons them


Dates
mentioned:
none - but it must be close to the end of the school year since they are handing out yearbooks

Additional
Info:
- Alex must have come out of the mindwarp at least once when he was in Las Cruces, because he made the 'Leanna is not Leanna' document
- Is it just me or does everyone, even on the show, think badly of Tess? Max feels weird about sleeping with Tess. Isabel asks Max if he wants sympathy or comfort after sleeping with Tess. And Micheal asks Max if Tess gave him alien herpes. The girl can't get no respect. ;)









***For those of you who don't know, 'Off the Menu' was originally meant to air after 'Viva Las Vegas', but they changed their minds and moved it to the next to the last episode because they thought it would give away the 'surprise' ending that Tess was the bad guy.

It certainly makes more sense when you watch it that way, then some things don't seem so out of the blue, like Max remembering his past life, and and why Liz is suddenly 'dating' Sean.

Off the Menu

Synopsis: - Maria's recap - (the fourth one)
- Maria says that something happened a few weeks ago that she discounted, but with all they have learned recently, this episode will explain everything.

- Day 1
At the UFO Center Brody is using a virtual reality device to try and remember when he was abducted by aliens. He starts to remember being at the summit and remembers Nicholas and Max there too. Then his device overloads and shocks him, knocking him out and causing the power to go out.

Max is working and checks the fuse box, but Tess comes in and tells him power is out all over town. She has brough him a gift but he is reluctant to take it. Max turns on the emergency power.

Brody comes in and says he remembers Max and Tess in New York with the other aliens. Max denies it but Brody has a gun and shoots at Max who blocks it with his powers. Brody shows them that the whole thing was recorded by the security cameras. Max asks what he wants and Brody says he wants to know who he really is.

Amy, Sean and Maria come in and Brody takes them hostage.

Hansen, who is acting Sheriff, goes to Valenti to see what to do about the blackout. Valenti tells him to call Ralph a electrictian.

Brody says he has memories he should have and he wants the aliens out of his head.

Liz calls Maria and she tries to send Liz a coded message but Liz has no idea what she is talking about.

Michael makes himself and Isabel burgers but the power outage stopped the gril before they are completely cooked. Isabel wants hers cooked more and is going to use her powers to do it but Michael stops her saying it makes the food taste like crap.

Tess tries to mindwarp Brody but says his mind is too crowded and she can't get in. Brody somehow knows she is using her powers on him and he turns on the cheveron device to block their powers.

Michael and Isabel go to the UFO Center to get Max and Brody shoots at them so they run out. Liz hears the shots at the crashdown and they call Valenti. Valenti calls Brody to ask what he wants and he asks for burgers and fries.

Brody has Lareks memories and the tells Max and Tess about when they first met in their last life. Tess remembers too but Max tells Brody none of it is true, and he and Tess were never in love. Tess is crushed by Max's words.

On Liz's balcony Valenti watches the UFO Center and sees Hansen checking it. He calls Hansen who tells him that the power outage started at the UFO Center. Valenti says he will help anyone in the UFO Center and Hansen can concentrate on traffic control.

Michael is making the food for Brody and trying not to use his powers too much. They send Liz in with the food and a button camera. Brody tastes the food and thinks Liz used alien powers to cook it, so he takes her hostage too.

Brody is distracted by the phone and Sean takes the opportunity to try and stab him, but Max warns Brody and Sean is the one who gets stabbed. He isn't too badly hurt though and asks Liz out.

Hansen gets suspicious of what is happening in the UFO Center, thinks there are hostages in there and calls in backup to go in and rescue them.

Kyle come to tell Valenti that the cops are going to storm the center. Valenti thinks there are controls at the center that will close a security door and sends Kyle to get blueprints.

Max tells Brody what he wants to hear, they are aliens and will return to their planet. Brody is about to surrender but sees the camera on Liz. They hear sirens and he makes them go into his office. Max finds Brody's equipment and they wonder if a shock from the overload gave him Larek's memories, and if so Max can heal him and fix it.

Kyle brings the blueprints and Valenti finds a control for the door, and Michael and Isabel go to shut it to keep the cops out and buy them time.

Maria talks to Brody and convinces him to turn off the pentagram and let Max heal him. When Max makes the connection he sees Larek's memories of his planet and of himself and Tess in their other life.

Brody is his old self again with no memory with what happened and they tell him he was abducted. Liz agrees to go out with Sean if he will keep it quiet. But Amy refuses to cover it up, so Tess mindwarps her to forget.

The cops finally get through and they all thank them for saving them.

Later that night, Max goes to Tess' room and tells her he remembers her.

- Day 2
Maria welcomes Brody back from being 'abducted'

Guest
characters:
- Brody Davis - the owner of the UFO Center, and sometimes host to alien Larek
- Deputy Hanson - deputy in the Roswell Sheriff's department
- Amy Deluca - Maria's mother
- Sean Deluca - Maria's cousin and recent juvie hall parolee

Important
happenings:
- Brody uses a virtual reality device to remember his abduction to New York and remembers Max there. The device overloads and shocks Brody causing a city-wide blackout
- confused and not acting like himself, Brody takes Maria, Amy, Sean, Max and Tess hostage
- Brody has access to Larek's memories and tells Max and Tess what he remembers about them in their past life, but Max denies it is true, and Tess is crushed by his words.
- trying to escape, Sean is stabbed but not badly hurt and asks Liz out
- Max and Liz figure out that Brody was injured and can be healed
- Maria talks Brody into letting Max heal him. When they are connected, he sees Lareks memories of his planet and past with Tess in their other life. The healing is successful and Brody has no memories of what happened
- Liz agrees to go out with Sean if he will keep quiet, but Amy won't agree to not say anything so Tess mindwarps her to forget what happened
- Max goes to Tess later that night and tells her he remembers her
Alien
mythology:
- Liz speculates that Larek uses part of Brody's mind that is usually dormant and when Brody receives a shock, he somehow accessed Larek's memories
- Brody remembers the alien pentagon device is called a trithium amplification generator which is able to block alien powers
- the water on Antar is crimson red
- There is a rock formation on Antar called Dimaras rock, named after the third moon
- on Antar, Zan first saw Ava on a rock, thought she was the most beautiful girl he'd ever seen, but was too afraid to approach her
- Larek offered to approach Ava on Zan's behalf, but Zan refused. So later Larek introduced them at a party.
- Zan was nervous and quiet
- Larek was neither shy nor obedient
- Larek and Zan were friends before he was king and used to swim together
- Tess says she is unable to mindwarp Brody because his mind is too full
- Tess can plant new memories in someone's mind, making them forget what really happened
- When Max heals Brody, he apparently get flashes of his home world and past life from Larek's memories (do we really believe this, or did Tess just take the opportunity to mindwarp Max some memories? It seems mighty convenient that Max remembers being with Tess in their other life.)

Departure

Synopsis: - Maria's recap - (the fifth one)
Max and Tess are together & Alex was murdered by an alien
- Michael's recap - (the first one)
Tess is pregnant and Max is the father. The baby can't survive on Earth so they need to find a way home - and he did.

- Day 1 (most likely the next day after 'BIY') (whole episode in one day)
Max, Michael, Isabel and Tess are in the granolith chamber and Max is telling them how it works, based on the destiny book translation. When they insert the crystal key the granolith will take 24 hours to get ready then they have to be onboard.

Isabel says it is too fast and Michael asks about Leanna. Who will stop her from killing their loved ones. Max sayd he will take care of her. Tess grasps her stomach to remind Max of her 'pain'. Max inserts the crystal and the granolith comes to life with a countdown clock.

Liz, Maria, Sean and Kyle are talking at the Crashdown. Kyle is drumming on the table and Maria says he has been doing it a while. Max and Michael come and ask to talk to Liz and Maria. Michael says he has to see Maria that night.

Upstairs, Max apologizes to Liz for doubting her about Alex's death. He asks for the info on Leanna so he can take care of the situation, and Liz says she is going with him.

At the Valenti house Jim is tending to Tess. He tells her that she and the baby will always have a home there, and she tries out calling him dad.

Max and Liz go to the University of Las Cruces to find Leanna. They get in a heating duct and see her in her room through the vent. Max says he will start a fire and kill her. Liz says it doesn't feel right, and he didn't think it out, but he is determined to do it.

Liz leaves and Max begins to start the fire. Suddenly Liz realizes that they saw Leanna hurt herself while sewing. She runs to Leanna's door and pulls her out of the room. She tells Max that Leanna is human and can't be the killer.

At Alex's grave Isabel is saying goodbye to him and tells him she doesn't want to leave. She dances with Alex.

Max tells Liz that Tess is pregnant. At the school lab Liz looks at Leanna's blood and sees she is human. Liz says they have to figure out who the real killer is, but Max says he doesn't have time. He tells her that the baby is dying and they are leaving tomorrow to go back to their planet.

Liz is furious that he is leaving, and yells at him, saying she trusted him, and did all kinds of things for him, and she even saved herself for him. Max says she slept with Kyle, but Liz says to take her home.

At Michael's house he has made dinner for Maria. He says he is ready for her to see him and connects with her.

Kyle visits Tess in her room and has a vision of Alex. He remembers Alex was there the day he died, and he has to tell his dad. Tess is frantic to stop him and mindwarps him to forget.

Max and Liz are in the Jeep outside the Crashdown. He gives her the alien pendant and asks if she slept with Kyle. Liz says no. Max says he wishes it could have turned out differently. They kiss. Liz goes inside and Max cries.

Maria and Michael have sex, and he tells her he is leaving in the morning. Liz goes to Sean. She makes out with him and tells him that Max broke her heart.

Max and Isabel make a goodbye recording for their parents. Max goes to get Tess. He kisses her and she has a flash that he just kissed Liz. She says he won't remember Liz where they are going.

Valenti helps them blow up the Jeep and push it off a cliff. Isabel gives him the tape for their parents. They all say goodbye.

Maria comes home to find Liz in her room. They hear her mother in the kitchen talking about the night they were held hostage by Brody. She is tapping her fingers just like Kyle, and it makes Liz realize that Alex was tapping too before he died. She realizes that Tess mindwarped them all and she must have killed Alex.

They go to see Kyle and try to help him remember. He does remember that Alex came to the house when his mindwarp wore off to see Tess. She tried to mindwarp him again, but his mind was too damaged and he died. Tess mind warped Kyle to think Alex was luggage and he put him in the car.

Liz, Maria and Kyle rush to the pod chamber. Michael, Max, Isabel and Tess are there just ahead of them, and go inside. The humans are right behind them but can't get in.

The aliens are about to leave, but Michael suddenly says he is going to stay. He leaves and lets the humans in and they tell him that Tess killed Alex.

They run inside and stop them from leaving, telling them Tess killed Alex. Max sends everyone out and confronts Tess. She says she didn't mean to kill him and what matters is going home, but Max never understood that because of Liz.

Max figures out it was a plan for her to get pregnant and go home. She says Khivar is not her enemy and Nasedo made a deal 40 years ago to return home with Max's child and hand them over. Max thinks about killing her but sends her off in the granolith. The granolith takes off into space.

Max tells Liz he was right to love her and have her in his life, and now he has to save his son.

Guest
characters:
- Amy Deluca - Maria's mother
- Sean Deluca - Maria's cousin and recent juvie hall parolee
- Diane Evans - Max and Isabel's adoptive mother
- Philip Evans - Max and Isabel's adoptive father
- Leanna/Jennifer Coleman - Alex's girlfriend from Sweden, who turns out to be a student at the University of Las Cruces

Important
happenings:
- Max put the crystal key in the granolith base to start it to take the aliens back to their home planet
- Max and Liz go to kill Leanna because they think she is an alien who killed Alex, but Liz discovers Leanna is human and was set up.
- Kyle remembers that Alex came to their house on the day he died, but Tess mindwarps him to forget
- Maria and Liz hear Amy talking about the night they were held hostage, and she is tapping. Liz realizes Alex did the same thing before he died. Tess mindwarped them all and must have killed Alex.
- Kyle remembers Tess killing Alex
- Liz, Maria and Kyle rush to the pod chamber to stop the aliens leaving, but they can't get in
- Michael decides to stay on Earth and lets the humans in
- Tess is revealed as Alex's killer
- Max sends Tess and his son home in the granolith
Alien
mythology:
- Tess' mindwarps are not permanent
- apparently when Tess' mindwarps wear off it causes excessive tapping
(if you can believe any of this because it came out of the destiny book translation which Tess set up for them to find)
- the destiny book translation gives instructions on how to use the granolith
- the granolith has one mission, to take the aliens home
- the granolith needs 24 hours to prepare to take them home
- once the crystal key is inserted into the base of the granolith, the countdown starts
- There is a hallway that goes to the granolith room, but it is unclear where the entrance is
(if we can believe any of this because Tess said it)
- Khivar is not her enemy
- Nasedo made a deal with Khivar 40 years ago to get Tess pregnant with Max's child and then return with Max, Michael and Isabel to their home planet

Dates
mentioned:
none
Although no dates are mentioned, I am guessing that after they get the 'destiny book' translation, the aliens don't wait very long to leave Earth. They think the baby is dying, so they probably leave as soon as possible.

Additional
Info:
- Valenti is wiping Tess' brow with warm water. Typically you wipe a fevered brow with cool water. Is there something about the alien anatomy that would make the use of warm water preferable?
- We learn about Alex's last minutes. He started to remember that Tess sent him to Las Cruces to decode the 'destiny book', and went to confront her. He broke down, saying that Tess destroyed his mind. Tess tried to mindwarp him again but his mind was too weak and she killed him.
- Kyle saw the confrontation and saw Tess kill Alex. Tess mindwarped Kyle to forget, and to think that Alex was luggage and made him load Alex into the car.
