'Roswell, New Mexico' preview: Episode 6 set to throw light on the day Rosa was killed, as Isobel is revealed to be the murderer

All along it was easy to put the blame on Michael for Rosa's death considering he is homeless and with no real virtue, but the truth was always something else


                            'Roswell, New Mexico' preview: Episode 6 set to throw light on the day Rosa was killed, as Isobel is revealed to be the murderer

Several pieces of the puzzle are gradually coming together in 'Roswell: New Mexico'. The CW reboot of the '90s cult classic, 'Roswell', is seeing the same old characters now all grown up with some real adult world responsibilities.

Starring Nathan Parsons as Max Evans, Jeanine Mason as Liz Ortecho, Amber Midhunter as Rosa Ortecho, Lily Cowles as Isobel Evans, and Michael Vlamis as Michael Evans, Episode 5 of the reboot came up with a whole new turn in the story. It was revealed Rosa's murder was committed by Isobel and not Michael, who all along has been taking the blame upon himself.

Episode 5, titled 'Don't Speak', was probably the most divulging episode on the show, as it not only revealed Isobel's secret of being Rosa's murderer but also saw Liz and Max trying to reconcile their relationship when everyone around them is going bonkers about aliens.

However, the most harrowing revelation was about Rosa. In order to help Liz, Kyle Valenti (played by Michael Trevino) who has always had feelings for her, took it upon himself to look into his father's past. Kyle earlier came to know, in Episode 4, that his father knew Rosa well but he was under the impression that his father, who was a doctor, had a mere patient-doc relationship with Rosa.

Kyle always knew his father was a good man and hence, he ruled out the fact that his father might be involved with Rosa. (IMDb)

However, in Episode 5 when Kyle and Liz came across some of his father's documents, which held a few letters from Rosa, the two automatically assumed Kyle's father was having an affair with Rosa.  As he kept looking into his father's things in their house, Kyle was led to a secret passageway that led to a room which had a bed and innumerable medical supplies.

He found a picture of his father holding a baby girl, and since Kyle always knew that he was the only child his parents ever had, he began to wonder if his father ever had illegitimate children. Over the course of the episode, Kyle began to wonder if Rosa was his father's illegitimate child, and if he was trying to cure her of her drug problem in that room. 



 

Every episode has been revealing some new secrets about Rosa, and Episode 5 came up with the biggest question: Is Rosa, after all, Liz's sister? The answer will probably be found in Episode 6, titled 'Smells Like Teen Spirit'. As the title suggests, Episode 6 will be a flashback into the teenage years of these characters as they try to find the missing link to Rosa's death.

The promo trailer opens with Max asking Liz if she remembers what they were like before Rosa's death, immediately after which, a series of flashbacks follow. In the flashback, we see Max asking Liz out, and while the two go on a date, Isobel tries to convince Rosa to run away with her. But why?



 

The scene soon shifts to the part where Michael is anxiously asking, "what did you do?", and we see three dead bodies floating in the air as Michael and Isobel walk behind them. It can be thought, Episode 6 will unfold several answers to the mystery of Rosa's death. We already know from Episode 5, it was Isobel who had killed Rosa and later hypnotized Liz into leaving Roswell but we still do not why?

The previous episodes had revealed that Isobel was not in very good terms with Rosa, who was constantly hated by her peers for being a drug addict. Even on the night of her death, Rosa was heavily sedated and the initial reports on her death claimed she had died of a drug overdose. 

Isobel's siblings have been trying to save her from being accused of Rosa's murder, but how long will they hold back the secret? (IMDb)

Now we know that was never the case. So, what is Rosa's secret? Whose daughter is she really? And why did Isobel kill her? Hopefully our questions will be answered once the show returns with Episode 6, but unfortunately, only after two weeks.
