'Roswell, New Mexico' Season 2 Episode 11 Preview: Who kidnapped Alex and will Michael get to the bottom of it?

Spoilers for 'Roswell, New Mexico' Season 2 Episode 11 'Linger'
Your favorite alien drama is coming back to The CW this week with Season 2 Episode 11 'Linger'. The series had taken a week's break and that felt longer because Episode 10, 'American Woman', was an eye-opener. We found out that Maria DeLuca's (Heather Hemmens) grandmother was Isobel Evan's (Lily Cowles) and Max Evans's (Nathan Parsons) sister, Louise's second daughter. While that was intense enough, Alex Manes (Tyler Blackburn) was hit on the back of the head and seemed to have been kidnapped along with alien paraphernalia. It was an emotionally draining episode as new families were seen to be true, but there were still secrets to be uncovered.
While most of us are wondering where Alex was taken and by whom, it would make sense that Michael Guerin (Michael Vlamis) would go after Jesse Manes (Trevor St John), Alex's father. Michael still does not trust Jesse but Alex had wanted to give him a chance, and that was the last conversation the duo had right before Alex was kidnapped outside Michael's place. So, that narrative is definitely unfolding this episode, or so we hope — the series has its share of twists.
Now, on the Ortecho front, Episode 10 saw Liz Ortecho (Jeanine Mason) deal with the intensity of ICE (US Immigration and Customs Enforcement) to help get her father, Arturo Ortecho (Carlos Compean) out of jail. He had been detained regardless of being a diabetic patient. Diego (Cleo Anthony), Liz's ex-fiance, helps Arturo out of that situation, and now that he's back in Roswell, not only does he get to meet Max, Liz's current man, he also gets to hear about the scientific research Liz has been up to.
Liz's research may have also been used without her knowledge. Max may have gotten his hands on a formula to get his memory back. In the last episode, he had a vision in which he saw Louise (Cassandra Jean Amell), Isobel's mother, break chains off of him while he was a kid. The promo shows that Max has something important to tell Liz. Will he explain his vision to Liz or tell Isobel about it? Or could it be that Max has learned something about his investigation behind the recent abductions?
The promo also shows what looks like Isobel visiting Rosa Ortecho (Amber Midthunder). This is great because it's been a while since we have seen Rosa. The last time she was in a hospital bed after she overdosed on drugs and had gone to rehab. Rosa's narratives are the most relatable and we wonder if she will be woven back into the main storyline soon. Maybe this episode will tell us. The last two episodes were also extremely faced-paced, and we are hoping this one takes its time as we speculate that we find out more about the Manes family as Michael tries to find Alex. That part of the storyline has an insane direct link to the past which could help the pod squad in the present. We also speculate that while we know that Diego maybe staying for now, will there be a power struggle with him and Max and how will Liz approach the situation?
The episodes synopsis reads: "Driven by the prospects of her scientific research, Liz opens up to Diego about all the good her findings could do; Max enlists Kyle's help with the recent abductions; Michael does his own investigating into Alex's disappearance."
