'Roswell, New Mexico' Season 2 Episode 2: Michael finally chooses Maria but fans aren't keen on the narrative
This episode had some emotional scenes but fans were not too impressed
Spoilers for 'Roswell, New Mexico' Season 2 Episode 2 'Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space'
A heart procedure is put on hold when supernatural baggage elicits PTSD and a mother's past is put aside as a man chooses his mate. The new 'Roswell, New Mexico' episode is intense.
In this episode titled 'Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space', we saw Rosa Ortecho (Amber Midthunder) try to adjust to life after the supernatural resurrection — courtesy of Max Evans (Nathan Parsons). The Project Shepherd facility is turned into an underground lab for Liz Ortecho (Jeanine Mason), Michael Guerin (Michael Vlamis) and Kyle Valenti (Michael Trevino) as they figure out how to put Noah Bracken's heart (Karan Oberoi) into Max Evans (Nathan Parsons) body.
While that is being figured out, Michael decides to be with Maria DeLuca (Heather Hemmens). He also helps her with a family crisis that she's enduring but many fans were unsure about that narrative. Some fans, however, may have been okay with it. "I'm glad that Michael and Alex ended things before Michael and Maria did anything serious. Alex Manes (Tyler Blackburn) deserves that instead of Michael being with Maria behind his back or finding out some other way. This season is really good so far! #RoswellNM," tweeted a fan.
"Here for Michael being even remotely emotional with Maria, can’t wait for her to be let in on things. #RoswellNM," tweeted another supportive fan.
But most fans, on the other hand, were a little put off by where the storyline was heading. "Repeat after me: maria is more than just michael’s rebound and i hate this storyline of a love triangle bullshit bc we all fucking know alex will always be the one in michaels heart and while i fucking love malex, maria deluca should not spend a season like this #RoswellNM," tweeted one fan.
"Michael and maria is so weird in that maria isn't in the know about anything so to her he ghosted her for two weeks then treated her like trash, then ignored her again for two weeks then they made up this show is so fast-paced #RoswellNM," tweeted another fan.
The couple, Michael and Maria, put their hearts out on the table — from owning up to mistakes to bonding over their mothers — and the scenes were emotional. However, fans were left confused. "Is anyone else confused by the michael & maria timeline? he ghosted her for weeks, treated her like garbage but now everything is okay? #roswellnm #roswellnewmexico," tweeted a fan.
'Roswell, New Mexico' Season 2 airs on Monday nights on The CW at 9/8c.
