  • There is a new crashed alien in Roswell... or is there?

    8.6
    Michael witnesses a collision between a US Air Force plane and a spaceship. The pilot is taken into custody by the army and Michael and Max go on a rescue mission to give the pilot back to his daughter.



    There are some major events taking place in this episode. All of which make the story progress and are very intriguing. First, what was in the spaceship? Second, Isabel's parents investigate her and place a camera in her room. This leads to a surprising event. Something that took 3 seasons to happen.



    Something else worth noting is the presence of the actor who played Chapelle on the hit series ''24''. He plays some hitman for army and has to make all the witnesses disapear.moreless

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • When Max dresses in the uniform at Crashdown and puts on the tie, in the next shot, the knot keeps changing from the right to the center.

    • TRIVIA: Music featured in this episode -

    • When the soldier comes in to kill who he thinks is Griffin with the bag over his head he approaches the body from the left, which would make the prone body's target his right temple or straight into the forehead. Yet after the shooting when the bag is removed it's obvious that the victim has been shot in his left temple, with a very dubious blood flow. This would not have been possible from the angle of the shot itself.

  • QUOTES (7)

    • Max: What did it look like?
      Michael: Like a really great sci-fi special effect.

    • Michael: What?
      Maria: What?
      Michael: Whatever.
      (Maria is hurt and looks over at Liz)
      Liz: No.
      (Maria rolls her eyes and walks away)
      Max: What?
      Liz: Still no apologies from Michael.
      Max: Ahhh.
      Kyle: Hey, you know that king thing tattoo on Michael's chest?
      Liz: That's gone. Max is king now.
      Kyle: I know, I know. But what I was going to say was maybe Michael can get like "I'm eternally sorry" tattooed there instead and just flash it every half hour, regardless? Saves time, cuts stress… Do we know the faux pas?
      Maria: Yeah, he...uh... threatened my life and then shoved me out of a moving vehicle and just left me in the middle of nowhere in the middle of the night.
      Michael: The car was stopped and I never threatened to kill you!
      Maria: After you suggested it would be better off if I was dead and Jesse and everybody else who knows about your little secret.
      Michael: It was a suggestion. Why am I always apologizing for who I am?
      Maria: It wasn't you Michael.
      Michael: Yes it is me. Max was dead. I was king. I did what I had to do.
      Maria: Fine.
      Michael: I'm not sorry about it either.
      Maria: Fine!
      Michael: No, I'm not sorry.
      Maria: Fine…

    • Michael: Me? What's happening to you? We got a major situation here and you don't seem to care.

    • Man (referring to the plate of food placed in front of him): That's not what I want.
      Maria: What you want is the Olive Garden.

    • Max: None of your damn business soldier!

    • Max: Prepare the probe.

    • Colonel Griffin: Thanks, now who are you?
      Michael: Cavalry.
