Next week, Roswell, New Mexico episode 2 is going to be airing on The CW and the simple challenge is this: Keeping the momentum going from the premiere.
What the show is trying to accomplish is a little bit more complicated than it first seems on the surface. It has a love story component here, and while it may seem on the surface like that’s something that any show can pull off, it’s so much more difficult than that. You need to be able to have the right actors, the right chemistry, and then the right motivations behind the scenes. You’re basically having to concoct the perfect mixture and hope that the audience feels the same way that you do. After all, by the time viewers see it you’re already so far along that you basically have to trust your instinct.
So what’s going to follow this premiere, and what can we expect for Liz and some other characters? Below, CarterMatt offered up the official Roswell, New Mexico episode 2 synopsis with some more news as to what’s coming up:
THE 10TH ANNIVERSARY OF ROSA’S DEATH – The anniversary of Rosa’s death reignites tensions as the town takes aim at Liz (Jeanine Mason) and her father, Auturo (guest star Carlos Compean), for what happened on that fateful day 10 years ago. Meanwhile, Max (Nathan Parsons) confronts Michael (Michael Vlamis) and Isobel (Lily Cowles), who are concerned that his feelings for Liz will expose their secret. Elsewhere, Master Sergeant Manes’ (Trevor St. John) attempt to convince Kyle (Michael Trevino) of the alien conspiracy in Roswell takes an unexpected turn. Finally, Liz and Kyle make a shocking revelation about Rosa’s death. Tyler Blackburn, Heather Hemmens and Karan Oberoi also star. Tim Andrew directed the episode written by Eva McKenna & Carina Adly MacKenzie (#102.) Original airdate 1/22/2019.
One of the things that we think will help this series almost from the get-go is that you’ve got such a wide array of familiar faces in here. Whether it be Jeanine Mason, Nathan Parsons, Michael Trevino, or Tyler Blackburn, there are a number of performers young viewers may be familiar with already. Meanwhile, the subject matter itself is something that does have an audience of its own. The same goes for the Roswell legacy, even if this is a new show.
It’s going to take a few weeks before its truly known whether or not this new show is a hit, but it does at least have the makings of a property that could work with the right amount of care and storytelling risks included.
