Next week on The CW, Roswell, New Mexico episode 13 — otherwise known as the finale — officially arrives. All of the drama of this season is going to boil down to this. There are more aliens, more dangers, and so many more secrets coming within this episode than you could have ever imagined.
Finales are tricky business for many different shows, largely because you need to 1) find a way to wrap up the story as currently presented while also 2) set the stage for what could be coming up next. Because Roswell, New Mexico doesn’t have a season 2 renewal just yet (and may not know its fate until the other side of the finale airing), its viewers are likely going to find themselves trying to shove aside their fears about the future in order to focus on the story. (For the record, we’re reasonably hopeful that there will be a second season — the season 1 ratings are better than some other series we’ve seen The CW renew over the years. We just don’t want to be overly optimistic to the point of throwing ourselves or you as the reader into delusion.
For a few more details in regards to the story, take a look at the “Recovering the Satellites” synopsis below:
UNDOING THE PAST – Max (Nathan Dean Parsons) and Michael (Michael Vlamis) find themselves at an impasse over how to deal with the 4th alien. Liz (Jeanine Mason) has a dangerous encounter with an unexpected visitor. Kyle (Michael Trevino) spirals after uncovering a dark secret about his father’s death. And Michael is forced to make a difficult decision about his future. Lily Cowles, Tyler Blackburn, Heather Hemmens, Trevor St. John and Karan Oberoi also star. Julie Plec directed the episode written by Carina Adly MacKenzie (#113). Original airdate 4/23/2019.
While we know that this episode’s title will bear some significance to the specific story, we also do like that there is an element of larger meaning for Roswell as a whole there. When you think about recovering satellites, you’re thinking about someone going out to the middle of nowhere and picking up various objects they believe to be UFOs — a lot of this is still a part of the town’s DNA today. (Here’s a fun thing to do if you’ve got a few spare minutes — Google Streetview some of the main strip of the town and just look at how much money Roswell is still making off of its alien mythology. We gotta think that the new show to some degree is helping with that — otherwise, there may have been fewer people within this current generation aware of its unique history.)
