'Roswell, New Mexico' Season 2 Finale: [Spoiler] doppelganger is revealed as fans speculate Mr Jones's identity
We're expecting Season 3 to dive into this strange narrative while we wonder how in the world Isobel, Max and Micahel are going to hide this man
Spoilers for 'Roswell, New Mexico' Season 2
The finale episode titled 'Mr Jones' revealed a new character towards the end, leaving fans with a huge cliffhanger. A book found in a family heirloom box revealed Tripp Manes (Jason Behr) writing to Maria DeLuca's (Heather Hemmens) grandmother Patricia where he spoke of Nora (Kayla Ewell), Michael Guerin's (Michael Vlamis) mother. The truth of the past had finally surfaced and fans took to Twitter to speculate the identity of a new character.
Nora had told Tripp that when she and Louise (Cassandra Jean Amell), Isobel Evans' (Lily Cowles), mother had crashed on earth, there was a stowaway hiding in her ship. He was responsible for the crash and was hunting the duo and their kids. She had also revealed to him that she and Louise were building something — that 'something' was the console that had threatened to blow up CrashCon in the last episode. But, she had given up that project and decided to retreat to safety with Tripp at a reservation. Unfortunately, she was captured by Project Sheppard when Harlan Manes conducted a raid. Nora had told Tripp that if Nora and Louise had escaped, so did the stowaway.
Now, Max Evans (Nathan Parsons) has been drinking vials of an antidote that Liz had given him, allowing him to better his memory. He had initially not understood the whispers he had heard at CrashCon when touching the bomb console, but the end of the finale episode saw him remembering what the words meant. Asking Isobel and Michael to help him find a tunnel, the trio finds an alien pod and in it was what looked to be Max's bearded doppelganger. "Still trying to process all that went down in this second season finale. Got me all in my feels. So many moments to take from it, and after that ending... it looks like we’ll be seeing more of Max and his doppelgänger/twin in Season 3. 'Howdy, Partner.' #RoswellNM #PodSquad," tweeted one fan.
In an earlier episode, when Isobel and Max had found out that Nora and Louise were running away from evil, Max had wondered if that "evil" was him. The foreshadowing in that episode was immaculate but leaves more questions in the minds of fans now as they try to figure out who this person was. Isobel had termed him "Mr Jones" and we had seen him once in Max's memory where Louise was fighting someone to protect Max when he was little. That 'someone' was Mr Jones and he was now in front of the trio but how does he relate to Max? "I really don’t think the max look alike is his twin or anything. I truly think he’s just a doppleganger bc max was 7 when he came out the pod & u don’t change ages while in the pod so the person louise was fighting was clearly the doppelganger and she was protecting max #roswellnm," speculated one Twitter user while another asked, "#RoswellNM am I the only one who thinks it’s Max’s dad & not an evil Twin? I mean-Max was also ~7 when he 'hatched' from the pods. Or... maybe the 'Nathan Parsons' are something else entirely since Nora called young Max 'the Other'. Oooh so much to think about during the hiatus!"
"So Mr Jones can’t be Max’s twin bc he was older when Max was a kid chained up and Isobel’s mom freed him.... So is he Max's dad? Is Max a clone? Will Max have to kill him for his new heart? #RoswellNM," said another fan. Another confused fan tweeted, "So the bad guy is.... max's twin? Or dad? That looks just like him? #roswellnm. It wouldn't make sense for Mr Jones to be Max's twin, but we don't know how the alien pods completely work, not to mention Max had looked at him and said "it's you", which suggests that he might remember him from somewhere? We're expecting Season 3 to dive into this stranger narrative while we wonder how in the world Isobel, Max and Micahel are going to hide this man. "So Max has a doppelganger/twin. I'm excited to see how this will play out in season 3. #RoswellNM," tweeted another fan.
