Season three of Roswell, New Mexico has been playing with our emotions since episode one and we don’t know how much more we can take. We are now at episode five of the season and our stress level is through the roof. We can’t even begin to describe our emotional level right now after watching this latest episode but we’re going to do our best to get through all that happened in Roswell, New Mexico episode 3X05: “Killing me Softly With His Song”
Connected in More Ways Than One
Okay, so in episode 3×04: “Walk on the Ocean,” we ended with Kyle being impaled on a railing after he was assaulted by Jordan Bernhardt. Max showed up and started trying to heal him as Liz, who was all the way in Los Angeles, passed out in front of Heath. We guess we were a little premature in thinking Kyle would not survive it but lo and behold he did. We just knew Max was too weak to heal Kyle and keep him from death. Although Max did save Kyle, there were some major consequences involved. While he’s feeling incredibly energized, Liz is not.
You see, just as we suspected, Liz and Max are tethered to each other because of when he saved her life in the Roswell, New Mexico pilot. Max assumed that his handprint only transferred emotions and nothing more. Wrong. Ever since he placed his hand on Liz’s chest, they haven’t just had an emotional connection, they’ve had a physical one as well. It’s interesting to me that Max wasn’t aware that this was something that could happen to those he’s healed before. We mean, he’s taking parts of them into himself and vice versa so it only makes sense that they would be permanently connected because of this.
Liz is a smart cookie so when she woke up after her cardiac arrest, she knew it had something to do with Max. That creates a problem for her when she has Heath drive her back to Roswell to see Max. He’s the only one who can save her. Unfortunately, she can’t tell Heath exactly why. Heath isn’t a bad guy, and we commend him for doing what Liz asked him to even though he knew Max was her ex-boyfriend. Heath wants to be the one Liz needs, and we totally get that, but the bond Liz has with Max is hard to break.
When Liz eventually made it back to Roswell, we were not surprised that Max couldn’t heal her without killing Kyle. He literally siphoned energy from Liz to heal Kyle. Come on, we didn’t think for one second Max was strong enough to heal Kyle. Max’s heart was failing and Kyle had a rail stuck through him.
Both of these dudes were literally at deaths doorstep. Liz, and Kyle are both tethered to Max now so he couldn’t heal them without, yup you guessed it, Jones. Remember, we were speculating about this very thing in our review of “Walk on the Ocean.” We knew Max would need Jones’s help and we were right.
Throughout season three of Roswell, New Mexico Jones has been one of those people we went back and forth with on our emotions. We have been questioning his motives in basically every single episode. It didn’t help that Isobel was so suspicious of him because we were right there with her.
Her suspicious nature is a good and bad thing and then when you add in the fact that she’s also an empath, it’s only gotten worse. It almost cost Liz and Kyle their lives. Max had finally accepted that he could not help Liz and Kyle alone and was about to have Jones heal his heart when Isobel showed up and stopped it. She was able to figure out that Jones committed the murder of Jordan’s friend Zeke which is the source of a whole lot of the drama that takes place in this episode (we’ll get to that in a minute).
What’s interesting is that Jones is strong, but he wasn’t strong enough to help Max until after he killed Zeke. He went after who he said was the most wicked person he could find because he truly didn’t want to hurt someone innocent. Murder is never okay so it’s hard to accept his justification but, he does save Max, Liz, and Kyle so this is truly a test of what’s morally and ethically right.
Once Jones has completed his mission, he gets placed back in the stasis pod. We’re gonna be honest, it sucked a little that Jones and Max didn’t have an onscreen goodbye before he went back into the pod. Maybe he was too weak afterwards since he did heal three people but, it just felt so abrupt.
Don’t mess with the ladies of Roswell
Racism is a very heavy theme in Roswell, New Mexico but it feels like season three has gone full on hardcore with it. This season has focused on the drama surrounding the Roswell Regiment which we told you back in our review of Roswell, New Mexico episode 3×03: “Black Hole Sun,” is basically Roswell’s version of The Proud Boys. The leader, Jordan Bernhardt is the one who assaulted Kyle and left him for dead. We were angry when he showed up to the protests and saw Kyle alive and well. There was a slight, very slight moment of shock but it really wasn’t enough to make us feel he even gave a shit that he almost murdered someone.
He wasn’t a better person; in fact, he was much worse, and we were pissed that it was like he was just going to get away with what he had done. Like we mentioned before, Jordan’s friend Zeke was murdered by Jones. Jordan didn’t know that though, so he was blaming the Lopez’s for it but we were in for a surprise when our girls Maria and Rosa came up with an amazing but also very dangerous plan to clear the Lopez families name.
Maria and Rosa devised a plan with the help of Kyle, Michael, and Gregory Manes to take down the Roswell Regiment. Rosa and Maria set Jordan up and he ends up confessing that he found Zeke’s dead body in the middle of nowhere and put it on the Lopez family’s property to frame them.
Little did he know, Anatsa, the reporter who is investigating the corruption on the Roswell Police department is live streaming the entire thing. While we were overjoyed by this and commend the ladies for their bad-assery, we know this is probably not the last we have seen of Jordan. He is after all the Mayor’s son.
Why Does Roswell Keep Trying To Kill Kyle?
When things wrap up too cleanly in a show, especially Roswell, New Mexico, we are suspicious. We know there is no way things are just going back to normal that easily. First, that murder mystery is not done yet. Someone is still going to die, and it seems Roswell, New Mexico wants to keep the victim as Kyle.
Based on Maria’s vision, as long as the Lincoln fire is still going and the ash still falls, it’s not over. As Maria is having her realization, Kyle shows up at Max’s place to look for him, but he isn’t there. Someone is there but we don’t know who. It’s just some person dressed in one of the alien masks that Jordan and his cronies are known for wearing as they terrorize the citizens of Roswell.
Of course, we once again had our moment of panic because what the hell is going on? Max sees a weird flash in the distance while he’s driving and makes his way back to his home. When he gets there, he finds a trail of blood that leads to an unconscious Maria lying on his floor. We have no idea where Kyle is.
We don’t know if he left and then Maria showed up and was attacked or whether she showed up and tried to save Kyle from someone. Like we said, what the hell is going on and can Maria and Kyle catch a break? Seriously, those two deserve a very long vacation if they make it out of this.
- “I need Max Evans. Take me back to Roswell.” – Liz to Heath.
- The soft spot we had for our precious baby Michael through this entire episode especially when he cleaned off the “Rosa Ortecho is a murderer” graffiti and had the heart to heart with her.
- Where the hell is Alex??? The Lockhart Machine was activated and yet we still know nothing about Deep Sky.
- Kyle bailing out the Lopez family was yet another selfless act and we say again, EVERYONE needs a friend like Kyle in their lives. He knew it was going to piss Jordan off, but he could not let the Lopez’s be charged for a crime they didn’t commit.
- Sheriff Taylor is useless.
- Sheriff Taylor having the Roswell, Regiment called in to help control the rioters was very reminiscent of what happened during the BLM protests last summer.
- I say again, Sheriff Taylor is useless.
- Maria is fearless.
- I want to know more about Jones and Noah’s relationship.
- Anatsa watching Max arrest the Lopez family… awkward.
- Heath and Max, what a way to meet. Yikes.
- Yeah, we feel for Heath. What Liz did was wrong. We understand the anger and hurt he felt over her sending him on a wild goose chase when he thought she was dying. There is no way to recover from that.
- Now that Liz is staying in Roswell, we don’t know what it will take for her and Max to get back together. They both still have so much to work on, and it seems like they are even more distant than before.
- Can the writers for Roswell, New Mexico leave our babies Kyle and Maria alone please and thank you?
