Will ‘Roswell, New Mexico’ Season 2 Episode 12 involve a literal crash?

The title, “Crash Into Me,” may tip viewers off about the plot of the episode. Could it refer to the 1947 crash landing of the alien spacecraft in Roswell, New Mexico? Season 2 has treated viewers to flashbacks surrounding the aftermath of the crash.

For the aliens involved, uncovering history has helped them gain insights into their heritage. For the audience, the scenes from 1947 have enhanced the story and provided context. Based on the title of the episode, could Max, Isobel, and Michael find the final piece of the puzzle about the spacecraft that brought them to Earth?

Does the title, “Crash Into Me,” foreshadow a future collision, whether alien or human? Could an impending threat cause death and destruction for those involved?

Is it possible that the episode title points to a metaphorical crash? Although Roswell, New Mexico, is a science fiction series at its core, the story revolves around relationships. Could a pair of amorous young adults collide romantically?
