Spoilers for 'Roswell, New Mexico' Season 2 Episode 8 'Say It Ain't So'
This episode was an emotional rollercoaster ride as Rosa Ortecho (Amber Midthunder) tried her hand at living a 'normal' life after being resurrected from the dead, a decade after she's been dead. Unable to control her odd powers, she seems to be short-circuiting everything around her especially when she is unable to control her emotions. This episode took us into her mind where we see who Rosa wants to be and how she hopes to possibly live her life, or so we think. Fans were distraught at her relapse and the intensity of how badly she's hurting and they really hope Iris (Madison McLaughlin) is real, for her sake.
In the last episode, we saw Rosa take the drugs after a visit from her mother Helena Ortecho (Bertila Damas) brings back many unresolved issues and secrets. In an attempt to get back at her mother, she steals pills from Helena's car and spills lighter fluid on it and even though she decides not to set it alight- her mind does when she sees her sister Liz Ortecho (Jeanine Mason) crying. It seems she can't escape her demons and thinks that she was always broken and that's why Noah Bracken (Karan Oberoi) preyed on her. If the ending of the last episode got to you, we're sure this one will make you cry.
"Wait, that woman [Iris] wasn't real, she was just who Rosa thought she'd be someday #RoswellNM," tweeted a fan while other fans were a little bit suspicious, "Why do I feel that Iris, Rosa's new friend, is up to something. #RoswellNM." Confused? Well...
Rosa dresses up to look like an outsider from Arizona to help conceal her identity. She makes her way into an old art den - her first attempt to get back into society, there she has a small altercation with some seemingly entitled teenagers. Not understanding how she can get herself normally intertwined with the public, that small tiff sends her into an emotional rant. She immediately opens her bottle of pills but doesn't take it and meets a girl named Iris who invites her to an art show called 'Icarus' and the girls enjoy a night out.
"@MadisonMcLaugh so when will rosa dream abt iris again? can she be someone she already knew 10yrs ago? can she come back to roswell if she’s actually real? im basically asking when will iris be back bc this can’t be the last time we see her we need her back pls #roswellnm," tweeted a fan.
"I really wanted iris to be real and come back again i loved her hyping up rosa and helping her be confident in her art and in her appearance #roswellnm," tweeted another fan.
It's not until later we find out that, Rosa had overdosed and was having a drug-induced dream. "The dream thing took me by surprise too. But maybe Rosa will see that coat in a store window ... buy it ... remember the feeling (if not the reality) ... and it will still help her! #RoswellNM," tweeted a fan.
It looks like Rosa is going to get through these tough times with her sister's help, so there's hope because she 'she will get better'.
"I came so close to crying with that scene between Liz and Rosa. It kinda hit close to home with me. #RoswellNM," tweeted a fan.
'Roswell, New Mexico' Season 2 airs on Monday nights on The CW at 9/8c.
