Season three of Roswell, New Mexico has been keeping our heads spinning every week. We have had revelation after revelation, each one more jaw dropping than the last. In Roswell, New Mexico episode 3×06 ‘Bittersweet Symphony,’ we found out basically what we already suspected, that Jones had taken over Max’s body.
This episode picks up right where we left off. Let’s get into it shall we?
One of the things that we are learning during this season of Roswell, New Mexico is that the gang really does depend on Maria and Kyle. Everyone seems lost without them and are forced to be the ones who have to figure things out. I wonder what would be happening if Liz wasn’t back in town. Maria is still in a coma and Jones is actively trying to pull a memory out of her. We’re still not sure exactly what memory he’s searching for but all we know is it involves her grandmother Patricia.
Since episode 3×06 of Roswell, New Mexico we have been wondering where the hell Kyle is, and it turns out he’s been right under our noses so to speak. We have also learned that his uncle Eduardo isn’t the bad guy we took him to be after he pulled a gun on Alex. I’m going to be honest though, I still don’t know why he felt the need to pull a gun on him and tie his hands up to show him where Kyle was but whatever works I guess. Once Eduardo brought Alex to Kyles location, we learned that when Kyles’s radio triggered the SOS, it led Eduardo to Max’s house. Eduardo showed up to Max’s as Kyle was being attacked by the guys in alien masks who we still don’t know the identity of.
During the episode we also got a whole lot of information about the Lockhart Machine which included learning that Trevor Gunther the boot maker who attacked Alex in season two, was one of Eduardo’s former employees and the Lockhart Machine basically turned him crazy. That’s not comforting to hear considering Alex has been working to figure out the mysteries of the Lockhart Machine. We do not want him to lose his mind. I get that Eduardo wants to find out more about it and the purpose for its creation but not at the expense of Alex’s sanity.
Despite all that, we’re curious about the Caulfield file he gave to Alex especially knowing it’s got information about March 11, 1969, which has the memories Jones is so obsessed with pulling out of Marias head. We too want to know what happened on March 11, 1969. That leads us back to the drama Jones has brought to Roswell.
With Jones hijacking Maria’s mind and Max’s body, Liz, Isobel, Michael, and Rosa all have to work to save them both. Liz seems to have found a purpose yet again in working to save Maria and honestly even though she’s sad about what’s going on, it seems like she’s got some excitement inside her. She loves her job, and we could feel the dedication and happiness over her being in her element. She’s a science nerd and while we got it, it was also a little strange to see her almost happily working to save Maria. Liz devises a plan to micro dose Jones with the same alien inhibitor she gave to Noah to separate him from Isobel.
While she’s doing that, Michael, and Isobel work with Rosa to track down Jones’s alien glass sword to take him down. We loved watching Michael teach Rosa how to control her power. It was a cute moment because they got to bond but it was also a chance for us to see sweet Michael. We love it when he’s being soft Michael who takes the time to care for, and show concern for other people. Rosa does learn how to focus her powers and she ultimately is able to track down Jones’s sword. Unfortunately, as things go in Roswell, the plan goes to hell.
We already knew that Liz’s plan was a bad idea from the get-go. Jones is far too strong and smart to be tricked. It was no surprise that Liz’s micro dose plan failed. We were even less surprised that Michael could touch Jones’s alien glass sword and that (insert gasp) Jones is the Dictator and Michael’s father. Yup, that’s right, Michael is Jones’s son. Did you get all that?
Jones was able to make his final kill and he took off with the alien pod that’s holding his body in stasis. Not only that, but he has also now broken out of the mind cage Maria placed him in. Because of this, he can now control her and make her show him what he’s been looking for which is the memory of March 11, 1969. We still don’t know what he thinks he will find in that memory but, we’re anxious to know.
We love our girl Maria because even though she’s trapped in her own mind and being held hostage by Jones, she’s still working to maintain some control. Now that he’s been able to get what he wants to break inside her mind, we’re really interested to see where their journey leads them. I couldn’t help thinking of Bonnie and Damon in The Vampire Diaries when they were trapped in the 90s together. Obviously, Maria and Jones’s relationship is not even like Bonnies and Damon’s, but you get my drift.
- Heather Hemmens did a great job directing this episode.
- Jones is an asshole but is it weird, I still think he’s hot? #sorrynotsorry
- Gregory Manes hosting the “Dollars for DeLuca” event was the cutest thing ever. Also, it was so adorable when he talked about her smile. When she comes out of her coma, I want them together!
- Wonder how long Father Dallas is going to be sticking around.
- “Ultrasonic hearing makes you a dolphin. Swim along flipper.” – Michael to Rosa
- “A little less stage mom, a little more Miyagi.” – Rosa to Michael
- Love how Isobel still looks out for Rosa.
- Eduardo telling Alex he picked him for Deep Sky because he fell in love with an alien, umm nosy much?
- Isobel, Michael, and Liz need to work on controlling their freaking emotions if they’re going to devise a plan to trap the most powerful alien ever. He picked up on Isobel’s anxiety, Michael’s anger, and Liz’s desperation to get him drunk and that’s one of the main reasons their plan went to shit.
- Max is trapped so deep inside his head by Jones, that he couldn’t even make it out to fight for Liz that was actually really sad to see.
- “That’s not exactly the blood of Christ in your hands.” – Rosa to Father Dallas.
