'Roswell, New Mexico' Season 2 Episode 2: Rosa airs her pent up feelings, fans blame Liz for her outburst
Spoilers for 'Roswell, New Mexico' Season 2 Episode 2 'Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space'
Rosa Ortecho (Amber Midthunder) adjusts to a life that's moved on a decade while she feels she's only missed a night; it's a lot of baggage. Her sister Liz Ortecho (Jeanine Mason) helps her adjust to life in the present but their relationship went the emotional route in this episode titled, 'Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space.'
Rosa has to fight to keep her sanity after being gone so long but she is finding it difficult to handle things now that she found the truth about her death. Liz had kept it from her. Fans focused on their sisterly relationship in this current episode. "Also let’s discuss how important it was for Rosa to cuss Liz out! Her entire speech was me all last season. These white folks chose to let your sister go down as a drugged up murderer, and at no point in adulthood tried to change to narrative. Liz is in the wrong here. #RoswellNM," tweeted one fan.
"Rosa's speech needed to be said out loud. The "it's in the past, let's move on." narrative is really convenient for those who aren't in pain. I don't think Liz in the wrong, but she lied to her sister and Rosa hasn't forgiven anyone and doesn't need to. #RoswellNM," tweeted another.
Rosa, even though murdered, was falsely accused of killing two other girls during a car crash using her drug addictions as a crutch. Fans empathized how it was for her to hide in a world that saw her capable of that. "Liz & rosa fighting i feel so bad for rosa she's back from the dead & not only is her life gone but everyone thinks she's a murder #RoswellNM," tweeted a fan.
This episode sees Rosa fight her own addictions as they resurface. "Liz saying that she didn't believe Rosa killed those girls was great, but Rosa had the right to air out her grievances. Liz has forgiven Max and sees his actions as the past. Rosa has not forgiven Max and since she just woke up, sees his actions as the present. #RoswellNM," tweeted a supportive fan.
Of course, there were some that also took Liz's side, "I understand Rosa's feeling about Max but she also fail to realized that he didnt kill her that was Noah fault & that without Max she wouldn't be back right now. Poor Liz she didn't that fight with her sister! #RoswellNM@cadlymack@CWRoswellNM," tweeted a fan.
We don't know if you caught it, but the haunting episode started with 'Wonderwall' by Oasis and ended on 'High and Dry' by Radiohead. Music has always added to the show's dramatic excellence. So it makes sense that fans were rather jarred by it.
'Roswell, New Mexico' Season 2 airs on Monday nights on The CW at 9/8c.
