Roswell, New Mexico (2019) s02e06 Episode Script

Sex and Candy

1 Previously on Roswell, New Mexico I am only going to administer a microdose.
So parts of your brain that have gone dark are lighting up again.
If someone took you, then we need to find them.
We're doing the transplant tonight.
I made a promise that if you came back and you were actually gonna hurt people, that I would kill you.
You shouldn't have brought me back.
You know, I was willing to let you go, Max, until I realized you were sacrificing yourself, again.
Don't come any closer, I'm warning you.
Fight me.
Come on! Think you're some kind of killer? Huh? Then do it! Is this what you wanted? You absorbed the toxicity of Rosa's death, and now you need to expel it, Max.
Cause an earthquake.
Cause a blackout.
Come on, Max.
Hit me! Isobel! I told you I would rather die than kill you.
But you wouldn't listen.
No Don't do it, Max.
Max, your heart Max.
Max! No.
His heart's like a jackhammer.
He's gonna short out the pacemaker.
Are you telekinetically resetting his heart? Isobel.
I am so sorry.
Hey, brother.
Oh, my God.
Come on.
Oh, my God.
Isobel! Max.
I'm-I'm so sorry.
Have we met? When I found him in the mind-meld, he was with his car.
A Bright Eyes song was playing.
But it was warped.
It was like the whole world was broken.
I think he was holding onto some pure memory of you to comfort him in his last moments.
Every time we reach for a memory, we alter it.
Since his memories of me are in tatters, our only hope is to sew them back together with this.
But you've been pumping this bag of hamsters full of antidote for three days.
Only took Iz a few hours - to recall her blackouts.
- Guys.
Can we not talk about me like I'm not right here? Whatever this crap is supposed to do, it's not working.
And I am stressed out having a stranger walking around knowing all of our secrets.
No offense.
Well, I, uh My sister's at home exploding lightbulbs any time she has a feeling, so I'm gonna go focus on that.
I'm so sorry.
I'm-I'm gonna talk to him.
I think he's just I am just glad he's alive.
And happy.
- What is all this? - Mexican market at the Pony.
So, this is me, subsidizing my income, as always.
Try this chamango.
It's orgasmic.
- Mmm.
- Hey.
So, is this the secret mission that you wanted my help with? No.
You and I are going for a ride.
What's your name? That's Buffy.
- Thanks for grabbing her.
- Yeah.
Who's a good little Slayer, huh? Ah, she's been acting weird - all day.
- It's the meteor shower.
They say it makes animals act strange.
Humans, too.
Well, it is a good thing I'm staying in tonight.
Roswell's weird enough on a good day.
- You two know each other? - Yeah.
Forrest is helping me organize an open mic tomorrow in the Pony.
Yeah, you should come by.
It's free drinks for performers.
Oh, I don't perform.
So Okay, so I'll buy you one of my free drinks.
Uh I'm sorry.
Maybe I misread.
Uh Can I have my Slayer back, please? Yeah, sorry.
Sorry about that.
I'll-I'll see you around.
Hey, um, I had a lizard named Willow in high school.
So You didn't misread.
You here for the surgical separation of craniopagus twins? Did you know, ever since 1947, twin births in Roswell are higher than the national average? Hmm.
Maybe it's aliens.
I've been thinking about what you asked me the last time we spoke.
Are you gonna tell me you have a crush on me? Definitely not.
You're just, um, you're just my favorite person I can't stand.
Wait, uh, where you going? So, where are we going? Well, these are the boots my mom was wearing when Jenna Cameron found her.
I've never seen them before.
And since the sheriff refused to follow up, I did - a little sleuthing.
- Mmm.
Turns out, they're very rare.
The only person that makes them is this weird cobbler who lives about an hour outside of town.
So I'm hoping he has a record of who he sold them to.
Well, great.
I've always wanted to go out to the desert and meet some strange guy from the Internet.
Le cambio una bolsa de chapulines para mi papá - Ah, sí.
- For the free fries next time you come to the Crashdown.
I'm trying to eat clean.
Uh, tiene carne seca sin uh, como se dice, preservativos? - Quiere carne a sin preservativos? - Sí.
Lo siento.
Uh, no lo entiendo.
Él quiere decir conservantes.
Preservativos are condoms.
Well, that's exactly what I meant to say.
I don't want condoms on my jerky.
Uh, gracias.
Estoy embarazado.
Embarazado means you're pregnant.
Maybe I am.
You're not my gynecologist.
My hands have been inside of your chest cavity, Max.
Your gynecologist can suck it.
There's a meteor shower tonight.
- I was thinking maybe we - I don't, I don't think that's a good idea.
You don't really know me.
Uh, uh, people who don't know each other go on dates, like, all the time, so You saved my life, right? And now here I am, trying to buy a snack, and you saved me yet again.
I get off at 7:00.
- No.
- Who are you texting? Huh? We're all here.
Well, since I woke up from the dead, everyone's been messaging me.
And Cameron's the only one that hasn't replied, which is not like her.
Well, you ghosted her.
And then you literally ghosted her.
Excuse me.
Maybe you should just keep it that way.
Trust me.
Into the dressing room, Romeo.
Let's see it.
Does he seem different to you? Never have I ever cheated on someone I was in a relationship with.
Uh, never have I ever been in a real relationship in the first place.
What about, uh, Kellie Sommer-something? No.
That was called friction.
Every time I was with a woman, I was just trying to disappear.
I mean, except for once.
Uh, sophomore year.
After Battle of the Bands.
Seven minutes in heaven, if heaven was Haley Moore's hall closet.
I can't believe you remember.
- That you were my first kiss? - What? And my first boob graze.
I was your first? When we were kids, I always thought I'd marry you one day.
When you came out, I had to make a whole new plan.
Hey, now, I did, too.
Come on.
You don't wish you were straight.
I mean I know what I'm supposed to say.
I just I wish that I felt it.
No one taught me to love myself.
Actually, just the opposite.
You know, kissing you in that closet was the first time in my life that I that I enjoyed touching someone.
And I just thought that I could be happy and not be afraid that if I loved anything, my dad would destroy it.
So, no.
I mean, I don't wish I was straight, I just think that if I was, I wouldn't have all of the bad memories.
You wouldn't have the happy ones, either.
Go on and close the curtains ♪ 'Cause all we need ♪ Is candlelight ♪ You and me ♪ Ready to go? One quick experiment first.
Psychogenic amnesia limits retrieval of stored memories, but if we light up your limbic system and gustatory cortex with some familiar signals Your milkshake might bring all my memories to the yard? - It's worth a shot.
- All right.
Not a big fan of mint.
You've been ordering Little Green Man since we were 14.
You know what? It's, um, sometimes when people wake up from comas, they have different personalities, different tastes even, so maybe that's what's happening here.
Well, shall we get out of here before, uh, I turn into your science project? I don't know.
What'd you have in mind? You can answer that.
- No.
That's okay.
- Hey, why didn't you bring him along? The guy has actual superpowers.
I have one good leg.
Michael is destructive.
He starts fights, lies.
He lied to protect his family, from my family.
I dated a guy like that.
His name was Chad.
He shouldered the burden of a murder he didn't commit for ten years so that Isobel didn't have to.
And he pushed you away because he was trying to protect you.
And, honestly, maybe he was right.
I mean, he has a lot of baggage, but he's not a Chad.
What happens when I stop being mad at Michael Guerin? To you and me.
I would never stop loving you.
Check out that sky.
It's like it goes on forever.
Can't believe you've never ridden.
Oh, indeed.
Father and dear Mumsy were devastated when I forsook the equestrian arts in favor of skiing in Aspen and croquet at the club.
- I went to ranch camp one summer.
- Mm-hmm.
Pretty sure I dislocated my shoulder trying to read Lord of the Rings while we were I've told you this story before, haven't I? I'm sorry.
I'm just trying to one-up whatever first date we already had.
We never really had one.
I mean, there was a gala, but my dad was there, and we caught a murderer, so I really don't feel like that counts.
It's a first date for both of us.
Magnetic ♪ Magnetic ♪ Magnetic ♪ I'm feeling under-dressed.
I never feel under-dressed.
This is Meteorchella.
We get enough flannel and denim out there.
In here, we look for any excuse just to add sparkles.
- You're new? - Yup.
Just got out of jail.
Looking to get into the, uh, good kind of trouble.
What's your poison? I'm exploring my options, so why don't you surprise me? All right.
My name is on your lips ♪ On your lips ♪ You sure this is the right way? Well, I would ask Siri, but I think she left us two scarecrows ago.
It's not too late to turn around.
You should think about doing that.
Oh, come on.
You don't happen to have a spare, do you? That was the spare.
Good thing I brought an armed solider with me.
I'd be having a panic attack right now.
I don't carry my gun when I'm off duty.
You mind telling me what you're doing on my property? Uh, we're, um I'm looking for the bootmaker.
Well, you found him.
My name's Travis.
Why don't you guys come on in? Mm-kay.
Let's do it.
Ask the tough questions.
All right? Nothing about music or weather.
I have a lot of catching up to do.
But before we do that, truth serum.
- Whiskey, Liz.
- Oh.
All right.
So what is the worst thing you've ever done? Do we have to start there? I believe in ripping the Band-Aid off.
Took you 20 years to tell me you loved me.
- Wow.
- Yeah.
I'm-I'm evolving.
I was engaged.
Feels like a lifetime ago, but it was just last year.
I left him without saying goodbye.
I'm guessing you've probably told me this story before.
Actually, we've never talked about this.
Diego is a bioengineer, too.
I was working on this fascinating study in Denver, and I would come home and-and I would talk about work, and-and he got it, and he had ideas on how to improve it, and he understood my weird science lingo, and he pushed me to be better.
And then the funding got cut, and our study was over, and I realized I loved the work more.
And I couldn't explain that to him, so I packed up my things in the middle of the night and I hit the road and I ch-changed my phone, and blocked him on Facebook.
Where's the whiskey? Are you running for the hills yet? Well, only so we don't miss this meteor shower.
You coming with me? I pumped this milk fresh today.
Still warm.
Nice ring.
Does that keep you from burning up in the daylight? Milk's still warm.
Ugh, cell reception sucks out here.
I was trying to leave Guerin a voicemail.
Figured the least he can do is drive out here and give us a tow.
Sorry I can't help you out with that car stuff.
Not much of a machinery guy.
I prefer something with a, uh, gentle give.
Speaking of, this is from my best girl, Jennifer.
I milked her for the last time today.
I'm, um, I'm lactose intolerant.
Listen, we're so sorry to bother you out here, but I really No.
You're no bother.
Heck, you're-you're the best thing I've seen in a long time.
I think it's, I think it's time.
I was hoping you might remember who purchased that pair of turquoise boots.
Mm, I'm sorry.
Ah, so many customers and all their ugly faces get all sewn up and stitched together in my mind.
Have you ever seen this woman? Yeah, that's the woman that bought them boots.
When? - Was she with anyone? - While back.
Nice lady.
She paid cash.
My mother doesn't have that kind of cash.
What, you calling me a liar? Ooh.
Meteor shower's got my girls singing a bit off-key tonight.
Jennifer, she likes a good lullaby.
Excuse me.
Okay, this guy's gonna turn us into skin suits.
Is Michael on his way? Look through these piles and see if you can find a sales ledger.
I'm gonna where I get at least one bar.
You want to split up? No, no.
This is why I don't like horror films.
The gay guy always dies first.
Or second.
Okay, that's fair.
That look is fair.
Don't leave, don't cry ♪ Are you lost, or really, really found? I just haven't felt like hanging out at the Wild Pony lately.
And you're avoiding Liz.
Makes sense, now that Max is back.
Look, sometimes it's nice to just hang out with people - you didn't go to high school with.
- True.
So how come you're here? I guess, after Noah, the idea of a bar full of straight dudes on the hunt kind of wigs me out, so I figure here I'll feel a little bit less like prey.
All right.
Meteor Shower Shooters on the house.
Oh! Okay.
- To feeling alienated.
- Yes.
What's the worst thing you've ever done? Oh, well, I wish my story involved blocking someone on Facebook.
I, uh I killed a man once, on a camping trip.
This drifter came out of nowhere, attacked Isobel.
I wasn't even thinking.
I killed him.
With this.
God, I arrest people who kill people.
Most of them usually regret what they did.
You know, you can tell that they're just forever broken.
It's like a piece of them dies with their victims.
So when, uh I could feel that darkness that like I had to kill, I I wa I wanted Isobel to let me die.
Because I couldn't risk hurting even one innocent person, 'cause life just wouldn't be worth living.
Sorry, sorry, that was way too much.
No, no, it just, it just it just hit me why you're so happy and idealistic, and I-I feel like an idiot.
It's You are that way because you don't remember me.
It's a clean slate.
It's like when you got out of the pods with whatever memories you had erased.
It's probably for your own good.
Last I heard, you were the love of my life.
You-Your cohorts, they left out some details.
'Cause if you had your memories, I I'm positive the worst thing that's ever happened to you is connected to me.
And I can't bear the weight of making you remember that again.
You're a combat veteran.
And as a result, I don't really love being snuck up on.
Look, my friend's mom was taken, and she showed up three weeks later wearing a pair of your apparently very rare boots.
So we're just looking for answers.
You understand that, right? I think we're alone now ♪ Doesn't seem to be anyone around ♪ Travis, I think that you remember who you sell your boots to.
I don't think that you forget that.
I think we're alone now ♪ The beating of our hearts ♪ Is the only sound.
♪ What? You don't like my song? It's hauntingly beautiful.
I'm just serenading the sweethearts.
Thought I'd make this pit stop of yours a bit romantical.
Where'd your lady go, anyway? She's on the phone with a friend.
I'm gonna go check on her, actually.
You haven't touched your milk.
Alex? He attacked me.
Stay away from me.
I had to defend myself.
You stay back.
War really messes with a man's mind.
Gets it all twisted up.
My condolences.
I feel it coming, I feel it coming on ♪ You got nowhere to run ♪ There's no way you'll make it out alive ♪ - Oh, when it's after dark ♪ - After dark ♪ - I'm gonna eat your heart ♪ - Eat your heart ♪ Don't try to fight it, just close your eyes ♪ Just close your eyes.
♪ Queen of the rodeo ♪ You rode on in with nowhere else to go ♪ You know the tune, so the words don't matter ♪ So, you're a doctor and a dancer.
And the world's foremost alien anatomy expert.
- Don't forget.
- Mm-mm.
Oh, I haven't forgotten.
There's a meteor shower peaking soon.
Supposed to be epic.
I don't like meteors.
They remind me of the night my entire family burst into flames upon entering the Earth's atmosphere.
Oh, God, I am so sorry.
You're messing with me.
- Yes, I'm messing with you.
- Come on.
- Oh, psych.
- Mm.
You want me to be serious, Valenti? - Yes.
- Okay.
I think you should take me into that bathroom right there and Running just as fast as we can ♪ Holding on to one another's hand ♪ Trying to get away ♪ Into the night ♪ Then you put your arms around me ♪ Maria! Whoa, whoa.
It's just me, it's just me.
- Are you okay? - I'm in a freaking cornfield! I saw your truck, and then I heard something out here.
I think Alex is hurt, and there's a guy with an axe.
- What? Where is he? - I don't know.
Time to get away.
♪ I hate love triangles.
Relax, Valenti.
I'm a benevolent alien.
I only eat humans who express enthusiastic consent.
- It's just, um - Look, if you're gonna tell me that a casual hookup isn't a healthy coping mechanism, then I Look, I'm six drinks in, and you are very attractive.
I could give a crap about being healthy right now.
- Okay - It's just there's someone else.
You mind if I cut in? I'm not really in the mood, Blaire.
Not you, breeder.
Boys ♪ I think we're alone now ♪ The beating of our hearts.
♪ Eyes up here.
Ah! Get down.
Get down! No.
You okay? Travis is out cold.
We have to get to Alex.
There's a gun in my truck.
Alex, are you okay? Son of a bitch stabbed me.
Where is he? Behind you! Wait, Michael, no! That's not Everyone all right? Sorry about my twin here.
He's had a rough go.
Combat does not make you an axe murderer.
No, it wasn't the combat.
It was the R&D.
If a paramilitary group ever asks you to take part in a study, you run the other way.
He showed up a few weeks ago.
Locked me up out back.
Lucky y'all showed up when you did.
Gave me a chance to escape.
He don't look so hot.
Look, y'all get out of here.
Okay? Go.
I'm so sorry to do this to you right now, but do you remember this woman? Did you sell her a pair - of turquoise boots? - Priscilla.
No, it-it's Mimi.
No, the cow.
I didn't sell those.
My brother must have.
Look, while you guys are getting the hell away from here, you mind calling an ambulance? So, about the milkshake The first time you waited on me, I asked for a Peanut Butter Blast Off.
And you brought me a Little Green Man.
But I was so in love with you that I didn't even care.
And the second time, you walked by my table and you pointed at me and you said, "Little Green Man," and But I was just so happy that you remembered, I never corrected you.
You remember me.
I am not better off without you.
I am not whole without you.
I didn't know what would happen when I brought Rosa back.
I just knew that her death was the worst thing that ever happened to us.
To you and to your dad, to Michael and Isobel.
I just wanted to fix everything.
I know, I know.
None of that matters anymore.
Let's go back to my place.
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh ♪ Who can breathe me into life? ♪ Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh ♪ Just one more look at you ♪ My heart has been hypnotized ♪ I can't believe we were Shyamalan'd by an evil twin.
No one would believe us if we told them.
This is gonna sting.
I know.
I almost lost you.
Both of you.
I'm here.
Um, it's getting late.
I should, I should go.
I don't want you to go.
I don't really want to leave.
Maria I don't want to leave.
I just I just want us all safe.
What are we doing? It's okay.
All right.
Thank you, Sheriff.
Tell me Valenti got the bastard.
When the cops showed up at the farm, the trailers were on fire.
Travis and Trevor were in the wind.
But at least now Valenti has some suspects.
Maria still asleep? I really never thought I would check that off my bucket list.
You think we crossed a line? I mean, if you told me I was gonna have a threesome with my best friend and my first love, I would say, "Which circle of hell am I in?" That's hell? I don't know, I-I felt, um - I felt - Loved.
Well, nothing like getting stabbed in the middle of nowhere to really bring people together, right? You know, I used to really think that you and I were gonna end up together.
I used to, too.
You're not gonna follow him? Um I am not going anywhere.
Neither am I.
My dad's gonna open the cafe soon.
I love you, I'll call you later.
Max, wait! I love you! Can't believe I hadn't said that earlier.
I mean, for months, all I've been thinking about is telling you how much I love you, h-how perfect that moment would be, and the time to have said it was Oh, it-it was after your epic milkshake speech.
And oh, my God.
Dios mío, Max.
I took off your pants before I even said I love you.
I'm some kind of zorra.
It's okay.
I knew, Liz.
The whole time I was gone.
I knew.
I call this one "Visceral Werewolf, Part Two," dedicated to my boy Chee Chee.
May he rest in peace.
Locked up for days, time slipping away, on my knees I would pray to break free from this cage.
But bargaining for keys, you forget hidden fees.
And wishing for what you're missing ain't the same as living the dream.
And now I'm fighting to stay on this side of the cage.
Even though I know part of me wishes I'd stayed.
Ain't no prophet or rebel or savior or devil could have predicted, fought, cheated or leveled.
A life with potential that's squandered, a comfortable cell is a question I ponder.
Am I a free man or a prisoner wanderer? Oh.
Well, well, well.
Look what the cat dragged in.
I'm gonna need my spare key back.
Yeah, that's not happening.
I have gone months without being able to see you, being able to talk to you, seek your brotherly wisdom.
Plus, I brought coffees.
Of course, they're cold, because it's, like, 2:00 p.
Which means you had a night.
So tell me about it.
- There is nothing to tell.
- Okay.
I'll go first.
Here's a hint.
I'll go first.
I, uh I met a girl.
And it turns out we went to high school together.
That's cute, but not as fun.
I went to a gay bar.
- Nope.
- And guess who I saw there? Kyle Valenti.
- Extra nope.
- So, at first I'm like, obviously, I'm gonna take that mustang for a ride.
I'm not leaving.
I haven't even told you about the lesbian part yet.
