                            'Roswell, New Mexico' episode 5 preview: Michael's murder confession is hindered by Max, will it stop Liz from finding the truth?

The CW reboot of the '90s cult classic, 'Roswell', has pulled in several themes in order to give the old story a new look. Among them, the most prominent themes include immigration, discrimination, and an indestructible bond between siblings.

The relationship shared between the siblings on the show - be it Liz Ortecho (played by Jeanine Mason) and her sister, Rosa (played by Amber Midhunter), or Max Evans (played by Nathan Parsons) and his siblings, Michael (played by Michael Vlamis) and Isobel (played by Lily Cowles) - takes center stage around which the mystery revolves.

Episode 4, titled 'Where Have All the Cowboys Gone', gave us a detailed look into the dynamics the siblings share. On the one hand, Liz is ready to sacrifice the love of her life, Max, in order to find the suspect behind her sister's murder. Her investigations into Rosa's death led her to discover it was an alien who had killed Rosa.

Max and his siblings are the only aliens Liz knows about, and quite expectedly, Max, who has confessed his feelings for Liz since Episode 1, became the chief suspect in the case. However, it was soon revealed, Michael was guilty of Rosa's death, and to protect him, Max and Isobel were ready to take the blame on themselves.



 

The last scene of Episode 4 saw the three siblings vowing to look out for each other, and both Isobel and Max tried to convince Michael not to take the blame of Rosa's death upon himself. A clip recently released from Episode 5, titled 'Don't Speak', sees Max and Michael indulging in a similar conversation, once again about Rosa's murder.

The clip opens with Max suggesting a road trip to Michael, as he feels the three of them should spend some time together. When Michael refuses the offer, Max warns him about the consequences that might follow if he tells Liz the truth about Rosa's death.



 

Max says, "If you tell Liz you did it, she's not going to stop until she gets justice. If you get exposed Isobel and I get exposed." He then tries to explain that once their real identities as extraterrestrial beings are exposed, they will become the subject of scientific experiments, reducing their existence to mere lab rats.

He tells Michael, "If you go down, we all go down. Whether you like it or not." The clip ends there and by the look on Michael's face, it seems that he is having second thoughts about telling Liz the truth. We don't know if Michael will finally open up about the truth, but the previous trailer had already revealed Liz meeting with a new character, Grant Green, who apparently happens to know about Rosa's death.

Will Grant give out the truth Liz is looking for? Will Michael disobey his siblings and confess the truth to Liz? What will Liz do once she gets to know who the actual murderer is? Hopefully, the questions will be answered once the show returns with Episode 5 on February 12.
