Season 1


Pilot

1999

Sept 17, 18, or 19
     - Liz was shot at 3:52pm Sept 17 according to Sheriff Valenti's report (SHP)
     - Larry Trilling, says he witnessed the shooting at the Crashdown on Sept 17 (TC)
     - The Roswell Soundtrack info also lists the shooting as Sept 17 (Sndtrk)
     - Liz was shot on Sept 18th or 19th according to her journal. (P)

The 17th was a Friday, the 18th was a Saturday, the 19th was a Sunday.
The day after the shooting is a school day. The Sheriff pulls Max over and says
We had a little trouble at the Crashdown Cafe yesterday. (P)
Obviously the shooting had to happen on Sunday the 19th for the next day to be Monday.

So when did the shooting really happen? Your guess is as good as mine. Use what ever date you need to make your story work, I say. lol


September 20
     - Liz confronts Max at school and he tells her he is 'Not of this Earth' (P)
     - Max reverses the connection so Liz can see him (P)


September 23
     - mentioned by Liz when she is writing in her journal. I'm Liz Parker and five days ago I died. (P)


September 24
     - mentioned by Liz when she is writing in her journal. I'm Liz Parker and five days ago I died. (P)
     - Sheriff Valenti shows Liz the pic of the corpse with the silver handprint (P)
     - Liz confronts Max about himself and his powers (P)
     - The Crash Festival where Liz and the others implement her plan to make Valenti less suspicious of Max (P)
     - Max tells Liz he wishes there could be something more between them, but they are too different. (P)

Liz writes in her journal about the shooting on the 23rd and the 24th, and that she died 5 days ago. Obviously it couldn't have been 5 days ago from two different dates, and it appears that it was the same journal entry when Liz entered two different dates.

I think there are a couple of ways to make sense of this. Perhaps she was writing it late at night on the 23rd, so she started with the date of the 23rd, but the second time she mentioned the date it was after mignight, so technically it was the next day even though it was just a short time later, so she put the 24th. Ta-da, two different dates in the same journal entry.

Of course it would still seem like 5 days ago to her that she was shot, because she hadn't been to bed yet.

Or maybe she was just really tired or excited and messed up the dates. lol
