Storyline

Isabel and Michael rescue Valenti, but when trying to stop Max's killers, Isabel is shot. Jesse witnesses it, and Michael is forced to tell him the truth. Now Michael, Jesse, Valenti and Kyle desperately try to save Isabel's life with the help of a scorned former doctor, while Liz and Maria mourn for Max in Vermont. But while all this is happening, the evil Meris and Clayton Wheeler discover that Clayton's body hasn't just been rejuvenated, it's been transformed into Max's body. And now Max's mind is trying to resurface. Clayton and Maris decide the only way to stop it is to go to Vermont and kill Liz. Written by ryan_murphy

Did You Know?

Goofs

After Max crashes face-first through a glass roof, he doesn't have a scratch or mark on him. His alien powers do not protect him from physical injury, so there is no explanation for why his skin was undamaged by the fall. See more »

Liz: I should probably go take a shower.

One of the Worst Episodes of one of the best series
29 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Chant Down Babylon is right behind Cry Your Name as one of my least favorite Roswell episodes. Even though it is written by series executive producer Ronald D. Moore (who wrote some fine episodes for Star Trek: The Next Generation), it seems as if he doesn't get the series and thinks he needs to remake it as a horror series. The episode goes against much of the characterization that came before. Breaking set can be good, but it seemed like he didn't like the characters and thought it would work better to have them act as if they were possessed. One of the low points of the third season -- and of the entire series.
