Spoilers for 'Roswell, New Mexico' Season 2 Episode 1 'Stay (I Missed You)'
At the end of Season 1 of 'Roswell, New Mexico', Max Evans sacrificed his life to bring back Liz Ortecho's sister, Rosa. In the premiere episode of Season 2, we see Liz mourning his death, while also being happy that Rosa is back.
A funeral is arranged for Isobel Evans' husband, Noah Bracken, who was the main villain of Season 1 as he was revealed to be behind many deaths in the area as well as the manipulation of Isobel as he tried to get closer to Rosa ten years ago.
While Isobel struggles to speak about Noah as she is still reconciling with the events of Season 1, she speaks about Max instead, how he was her "other half." Max's death has been hidden from the town as they tell everyone he left because Liz broke up with him.
However, in the final moments of the season premiere, we learn that Max might still be alive as Liz becomes determined to bring him back. Moreover, we also learn that Max does not want Liz to bring him back. However, fans should be prepared for a long wait according to showrunner Carina Adly Mackenzie.
In a recent interview with MEA Worldwide (MEAWW), Mackenzie told us, "Max certainly doesn't think it's going to be a good thing if he comes back as he warns Rosa at the end of the [season premiere]. He doesn't want Liz to bring him back. So the stronger Max gets, the harder he fights against this mission."
She also tells us that it will be a while before we see Max among the living. She says, "It's not an easy mission. It takes. It's not something that she does in a week or a month. It takes her a long time."
She adds, "It takes her a lot of effort, which is tough given the fact that she has a life. She has responsibilities to her family, to her work, to her sister, and also ultimately to herself, not to become a person who's locked up in a lab and watching the world pass her by."
Mackenzie continues, "So, yeah, it's definitely not easy. And there are triumphs along the way. And there are definitely some heartbreaking failures along the way."
'Roswell, New Mexico' airs on Monday nights on The CW at 9/8c.
