Spoilers for 'Roswell, New Mexico' Season 2 Episode 1 'Stay (I Missed You)'
The end of Season 1 saw Max Evans (Nathan Parsons) and Liz Ortecho (Jeanine Mason) get together before the much-loved character's death. Max sacrificed his life to bring back Liz Ortecho's sister, Rosa.
In the Season 2 premiere we find out that there may be a way that Max would be resurrected, but he tells Rosa in a dream to stop Liz from doing so. And we don't know why yet. In the meantime, fans reeled over the abrupt end of Max and Liz's romance, courtesy emotional flashbacks and aesthetics of the episode.
"I want a happy Echo so badly but can you just imagine Liz trying to get Max to fall in love with her again?! Her not running this time & fighting for him?! Oh my heart #RoswellNM," tweeted a hopeful fan. Their time together was cut short since Max's passing and fans weren't okay with this, with one tweeting, "MAX AND LIZ WERE GONNA FINALLY GO ON THAT ROAD TRIP. THIS IS NOT FAIR. #RoswellNM."
Liz, although ecstatic to have her sister back, is torn between happiness and sadness. Having to mourn the death of the man that saved her sister, is not an easy task. The scenes in this episode caused a lot of emotional turmoil among fans.
"That scene with Liz crying in the shower over Max killed me #[email protected]," tweeted a fan. "I'm sorry, that transition of Liz and Max being happy to Liz crying over Max's dead body? Heartbreaking but beautiful. #RoswellNM," tweeted another emotional fan.
Fans were melancholic over the death of Max, who committed the noblest of deeds on the show.
"Rip my heart out Max Evans you self sacrificing handsome hero man. Ugh, you and Liz belong together. #RoswellNewMexico #RoswellNM," tweeted another fan.
Fans also speculated the what if's, with one of them tweeting, "Poor Liz. She got Rosa back, but lost Max. But I can't help thinking that, if she had to decide herself which one of them lived, she would still choose Rosa But that probably just makes her feel guilty, too, on top of the grief #RoswellNM."
Will Max be resurrected and have a chance with Liz again? This Season 2 better give fans what they want!
'Roswell, New Mexico' Season 2 airs on Monday nights on The CW at 9/8c.
