In last week's episode of 'Roswell, New Mexico', the Season 2 premiere of the show, viewers learned towards the end of the episode that Isobel Evans could be pregnant with Noah Bracken's baby.
To recall, Noah has been with Isobel for years, but he hid the key detail that he was an alien from her. Ten years prior to the setting at the start of the show, Noah would control Isobel's body when she was having blackouts, and use that opportunity to talk to Rosa Ortecho, Liz's sister. He eventually killed Rosa and two other girls, as well as countless others.
As Season 1 ended, Max Evans, Isobel's brother and Liz's boyfriend, killed Noah and sacrificed his own life to bring Rosa back to life — Rosa had been stashed in an alien pod by Noah.
In this week's episode, Isobel, in a desperate attempt, uses Liz's serum to end her pregnancy. Liz's serum is dangerous to aliens, as it was shown in the first season when Isobel began dying after being injected. She was only saved after Liz found an antidote to save her.
MEA WorldWide (MEAWW) spoke to showrunner Carina Adly Mackenzie and asked her how Isobel would be doing in the aftermath of learning about her husband and her pregnancy.
Mackenzie says, "She's not coping very well. Isobel feels like she has been reliant on the men in her life for a very long time and they were both ripped away from her."
Mackenzie also says that though it may seem inconceivable, Isobel still grieves Noah. She says, "[He was] the man that she believed that she was with — they were together for like nine years. She met him right out of high school. He's the only person she's ever been in love with. And so she's having a really hard time coming to terms with who he really was."
Isobel will also struggle to come to terms with the violations he committed against her, according to Mackenzie. She says, "The thing about her pregnancy that is the most significant is that it's something that she has to manage alone. It's something that has sort of been inflicted on her. It's not something that she chose. And she doesn't have anyone to rely on. She can't go to the doctor and talk about her options [because she's an alien]. She can't go get a checkup and see if her baby is a demon."
Mackenzie emphasized that Isobel is a woman without the medical care that she needs. She says, "Just as in reality, when a woman is put into a desperate situation and doesn't have the medical care they need and doesn't have access to the resources that they need, often desperate choices get made — very dangerous [and] desperate choices."
'Roswell, New Mexico' airs on The CW on Monday nights at 9/8c.
