Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Mary Ellen Trainor ...


When one of their closest friends die in suspicious circumstances, each character deals with it differently. Liz is in denial, refusing to believe that her friend would commit suicide; Maria falls apart, leaning on a surprisingly caring Michael for support; Isabel believes her friend's death was her fault; Kyle tries to stay strong and Max finds himself jealous that Sean is there for Liz when he can't be. Liz makes an accusation that could ultimately crush her relationship with not only Max, but the entire pod squad. Written by Erin B

Did You Know?


In this episode, you see very clearly that Alex is buried on top of a deserted hill, yet in later episodes when Isabelle goes to visit the grave stone it is surrounded by many other gravestones, on a flat field. See more »


Amy DeLuca: You know, I think this is the most time you've ever spent in my house.
Michael: Yeah, I... I could leave if you want. Just, it's nice to be around people.
Amy DeLuca: No, no. That's not what I meant at all. Ah, what I'm trying to say is that you've really been great for my family. And it's a wonderful thing to see my daughter loved. And I would like to see a lot more of that. And, as far as I'm concerned, you'll always be welcome in this house.
Michael: Thank you.
Amy DeLuca: Welcome on the couch.
Michael: Right.

this show hit a very real mark,
1 October 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I know there are a lot of us there/here who have lost loved ones and the way they had each character react was so real, brought back memories of 4 diff accidents and our reactions (between grs 7-12, about 10yrs ago when aired). We had this wide range of emotions and the tears we shed and yes anger, well it is human, and Roswell covered most if not all in this episode.

With Hanks wanting to leave having Alex die this way was an unexpected twist that had the show go in a diff direction, kinda wish he hadnt left, Alex/Isabel, Maria/Micheal, Kyle/Tess (Amy/Jim) and of course Max and Liz as couples would have been interesting (not that I didn't like Jesse I did/do and maybe another review at end of series). But then future Max's future may not have changed enough to save the world(s), also never really trusted Tess, she was raised "alien" and to "not know" how she did the things she did (fire ball and in NY what really happened to Rath and Lonnie??? etc).

We loved the "geeky" Alex (Hanks, anyone else reminded of his dad in the movie big) and how he was a true friend even before he knew the secret, and how Isabel finally saw what and who he was, she was no longer "blind", he was growing into a wonderful man and will be missed, good bye Alex it was far to soon, (at least we see him a few more times in Isabel's dreams). Yup I did a small tribute to Alex, hope it made sense.

Be sure to have a tissue or 2 (more if u have water works like me)
