Roswell, New Mexico - Where Have All the Cowboys Gone? - Review

This week on Roswell, New Mexico Max agrees to let Isobel make Liz leave, so Isobel decides to practice on Maria in the hopes of figuring out why Maria hates her so much. It doesn’t end too well for Isobel, she passes out but not before learning it’s because Rosa was avoiding her the day she died. Kyle helps Liz with her dad, who ended up in the hospital due to early symptoms of diabetes. They later hook up. Max uses his powers to get to power back on at the hospital and later confronts Liz about what happened the night before. Liz says she feels like he’s still lying to her, which he is. Cameron is approached by Manes, who promises to help out a friend of hers in return for access to the police station. Michael wants to take the fall for what happened the night that Rosa died, which apparently all 3 of them had a hand in. 

Who hurt you? I have to admit, the mystery of Rosa is one of my favorite aspects of this show. We’ve only gotten glimpses of her, but it’s enough to have us all speculating. Liz was right to assume someone hurt Rosa. You don’t build up walls like that without experiencing some serious heartbreak. But I just can’t imagine her with Kyle’s dad. Not that we know either of them well, but she doesn’t seem like someone who’d hook up with a much older cop. And how does Isobel fit into all of this? Rosa clearly had issues with her but Isobel seems to have no clue why. Even though it didn’t seem that way last week. For a minute there I thought the Isobel might have been the one Rosa was secretly dating. But I think Isobel would remember that. 

What did you do? So it seems that Max, Michael, and Isobel are not so innocent after all. They’re hiding something huge relating to Rosa’s death. I swear, the more I learn, the more confused I get. So we know 3 girls died (Rosa and 2 others), we know the military was involved in the cover-up (probably) and that our 3 resident aliens also had some hand in it. Michael says he killed those girls but I’m willing to bet the writers just wanted to have a dramatic ending. He was probably just indirectly responsible or something, but feels like he killed them. I can’t believe we’re only 4 episodes in and I’m already dying to find out what happened. 

That was fast: Well, Max sure changed his mind very quickly. One week he’s telling Isobel and Michael to stay away from Liz, the next he’s saying it’s okay for Isobel to get inside Liz’ head and make her leave. Not cool, dude. Especially since Liz clearly doesn’t want to leave now that her dad’s health is declining. And I doubt she wanted to leave him the first time around after her sister died, when Isobel made her. But I guess Max doesn’t know about that yet (you know he’ll find out eventually). I have to say, this version of Isobel sure seems to like using her power. From what I remember from the original show, that wasn’t the case there (to be fair, I haven’t seen season 3 yet). But she seems to have met her match in Maria, who seems to have some powers of her own. I wonder if they’ll expand on that. 

I like this change: So, everyone was worried Kyle would be a problem for Max since he knows his secret. But it seems like it’ll be Cameron who fills that position. I knew they were headed in this direction the minute they revealed her military past. I’m glad, though. Cameron will be easier to dislike than Kyle, who is already becoming one of my favorites. And I doubt we have to worry about him revealing the secret. If he didn’t throw it in Max’ face when they were fighting, he won’t now. Cameron on the other hand, if they play the jealousy card, could be a real problem. Especially since she’s already intimately familiar with Max. 
Best quotes: Rosa: “People are the worst drug. They hook you, and then, they make you believe that they care and they leave, or they fail you, or they hurt you on purpose.” Liz: “Did you and Frederico have a fight?” Rosa: “No, Frederico is old news but just listen to me, okay? There’s a reason that God put a cage around your heart. People don’t need other people. We need armor.” 
Liz: “I don’t know how to thank you.” Kyle: “Free fries for life?” Liz: “You’ve already been stealing them for 20 years.” 
Maria: “Get Regina George out of here and make sure she never comes back.” 
Liz: “You got better at that.” Kyle: “Oh, you know. Wisdom, experience, anatomy class.” 

That’s it for this week. Check in again next week for an all-new review and let me know in the comments what you thought of this week’s episode.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
