Storyline

Max, Michael, Isabel, and Tess prepare to return to their home planet using the granolith and the directions from the book that Alex translated. They find that saying goodbye is not an easy thing to do. Max and Liz discover that the university student they believed to be an alien is not and therefore couldn't have been Alex's killer. Kyle and Maria's mom start to remember things that Tess had mind warped them to forget. Written by horomnizon

Trivia

There is an hour of unaired footage from "The Departure" episode floating around the internet. The episode was originally 2 hours long, but at the last minute the WB network would only give Roswell a regular hour-long slot, so they had to cut an hour of footage to make the one - hour time slot.

Goofs

Max tells Liz that he is departing 'just after dawn'. But when he approaches the pod chamber to depart, it is bright noon sunlight outside with no shadows, long past dawn. In addition, Maria and Liz speak to Kyle in his room before Max reaches the pod chamber, and it is bright daylight in that scene too. See more »

kinda major flaw with 1 thing
23 December 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

OK Tess is pregnant and the baby cant survive on earth and is already experiencing a life that cant live in this "hostile" environment. So now the 4 aliens have to leave so the baby can live, and now have a way because of Alex. He was able to translate the "book" an here we find out just how busy Tess has been.

To mind warp Alex (why not ask but not the alien way I guess), to keep him that way just to translate. Some how she also did something to the mind of the girl in the picture so she all of a sudden has to go away. To then allow Max to kill her when she is completely innocent, thankfully Liz figured out she was not alien. Oh ya rig a house to blow up umm did she already have a copy of the translation in case someone else or what if Liz had been on her own (translation would still have been destroyed). This is some of what she did and was deff without human feeling.

The flaw, the baby is not born!!! Bio, baby is in amniotic fluid, not air, so there is no way to know if a baby can survive outside or not!!! Oh cant Max tell the diff between seeing and mind warp seeing??? Guess not, which is another way of seeing/knowing just how alien Tess is.
