Dr. Ethan Stone was the town’s new resident doctor and eye candy. Mayor Ben Hawthorne introduces him to cover the Patience Health Center in town from Harry. Ethan immediately impressed the local townspeople, having worked for Doctors Without Borders and a seasoned athlete.

The good doctor gets an unwelcome visit from two government agents who kidnap him. Max Hawthorne misleads the two agents into believing Ethan is the alien they are looking for in episode 10. The clinic notices Ethan’s absence. In Resident Alien Season 2, Asta learns Ethan is late for his rounds. Fans also see D’Arcy visit his home in season 2, episode 1, and finds it empty.

Fans get more details into General McCallister’s plans to find their alien in Resident Alien Season 2 Episode 4. The episode show’s an ordinary man getting therapy and describing his experience being abducted by aliens. After his session, the therapist makes a phone call. While walking home, the man is kidnapped by agents.

Later in the episode, the man is wearing a white uniform and placed in a holding cell. The scene pans out to show a row of cells and Ethan in one of them. The good doctor was a prisoner the entire time. Resident Alien Season 2 interweaves Ethan more into the storyline.

He is brought into a room with General McCallister and bribed with a good meal and wine. Thanks to her father, McCallister gives Ethan some insight into her past and her fascination with aliens. She explains she is very welcoming to his kind, but Ethan has no idea what she is talking about. McCallister gets fed up and tries to force Ethan to show his true alien form. To do so, she stabs his hand with a fork and is dismayed when nothing happens.

For now, Ethan is more of a side character, and so is his story in Resident Alien Season 2. His return helps further McCallister’s story and her willingness to find Harry or the alien in question. How could Ethan become more involved in the series?

By the end of Resident Alien Season 2 Episode 4, McCallister learns of an alien radio transmission using an unknown language. She is unaware that Harry is the alien and he was the one who sent the transmission. It could be that she realizes Ethan is not the alien she is looking for and starts a new plan. Ethan’s fate is unclear. McCallister can not risk setting him free and telling everyone about her facility.
