Having been gone a decade, Rosa has to now enter a world that had moved past her death and fans are hoping her character is given the narrative it deserves
Spoilers for 'Roswell, New Mexico' Season 2 Episode 1 'Stay (I Missed You)'
In the Season 2 premiere of 'Roswell, New Mexico', we see the storyline pick back up from Season 1 where Max Evans (Nathan Parsons) dies as he uses his powers to resurrect Rosa Ortecho (Amber Midthunder). After having been gone a decade, and feeling the fleeting time of just one night, Rosa has to now enter a world that had moved past her death. Fans are ecstatic to have her back and are hoping that her character — a 19-year-old drug addict — is given the narrative it deserves.
"Rosa having an addiction is still accounted for even though the physical systems of her addiction have been healed is so powerful. Where does a resurrected dead girl go for the therapy she clearly needs? I love that they are continuing to explore her story. #RoswellNM," tweeted a fan.
Rosa's sister Liz Ortecho (Jeanine Mason) is yet to inform Rosa about what happened 10 years ago and who was responsible for her death. Liz instead accepts a grant in Palo Alto to help Rosa start a new life, away from Roswell and its antics. Needless to say, no one was upset that Rosa was back in the game with another fan tweeting, "Everyone is in for A LOT of shallow tweets about how distractingly hot I find Rosa now that I am going to have to cope with her being alive in every episode, giving my heart no tube to recover. Just fair warning. #RoswellNM."
While the audience knew how and why Rosa had died a decade ago, they are also wondering how forward her narrative will be pushed. "It’s about to go down. I also have some very REAL questions about how they will explain Rosa alive to everyone in town, considering they all think that she was high and killed two other girls. #[email protected] @RoswellNMRoom," tweeted another fan.
It seems as though Season 2 of 'Roswell, New Mexico' has a lot in store for us, as another fan hoped, "It's going to be interesting to see how they get around explaining how Rosa is alive and why she hasn't aged a day in the ten years she has been 'dead'. #RoswellNM #RNMSeason2." Another tweeted, "Now that Rosa is alive, do you guys think we're gonna see her character still struggle with her mental illness/ substance abuse in season 2?? #RoswellNM."
While Rosa has been absent for a decade, there are a lot of people about to ask questions, but maybe she'll be sage in Pan Alto? If Liz and Rosa are going to leave Roswell, how is Max going to be resurrected?
'Roswell, New Mexico' Season 2 airs on Monday nights on The CW at 9/8c.
