Mason digs the ‘Roswell, New Mexico’ nostalgia in the season 2 finale

Roswell, New Mexico Season 2 Episode 13, “Mr. Jones,” is the second season finale of The CW series. The episode will pick up at the fictional CrashCon festival, which draws UFO enthusiasts, near and far. Collider caught up with Mason for an interview, and she had lots to share about filming CrashCon during the last two episodes of the season. She said this:

“Oh, man, it’s so fun. It gives you so much OG Roswell nostalgia. It’s pretty great.” Mason continued, “What I love about The CW is that there’s always an episode, or a pair of episodes, centered around a big event. Last year, we had the gala, and this year, it’s this. Small town events are massive. Everybody’s out.”

“Liz realizes she can’t save everyone she loves from the deadly threat at CrashCon; Max faces immediate danger; Michael becomes caught up in the conflict between Jesse and Alex; Kyle faces a moral dilemma.”

It is anyone’s guess how things will shake out, but Mason hinted that fans are in for a thrilling finale. She explained the considerable preparation that went into crafting the story and delivering great performances. She told Collider this:

I was impressed. I read a script and get so excited by the writer’s ideas, and then we get to set, and we try to figure out the logistics, three times over, and how to do it justice and do right by the excitement of the words.

These last two episodes, that happen in the convention/carnival, exceeded everything that I had imagined, and it was incredible to see. I can’t wait for people to see. I really think the last two episodes are gonna have people on the edge of their seat.
