Clip of Michael watching the crash.

Clip of Michael looking into the base.

Max: Is there a ship?

Michael: There's a ship.

Clip of Mr.Evans on the phone with Mrs. Evans.

Mr. Evans: Did you do what I told you?

Mrs. Evans: Yes.

Clip of Isabel using her powers in her room and it being videotaped.

Mrs.Evans: Are you all right honey?

Clip of Mrs. Evans watching the video and Mr. Evans walking in.

Mr. Evans: Honey? Are you ok?

She inclines her head toward the tv screen.

Mr.Evans: Oh my gosh.

At Michael's apartment.

Michael is sitting eating sunflower seeds staring at the piece of the ship he picked up from the base.

Max: Michael you've been staring at that thing for hours.

Michael: It's part of the crashed alien ship, Maxwell.

Max: I don't think it makes it any more interesting to watch.

Michael: It could be from our home planet.

Max: Or not.

Michael: Why aren't you taking this thing more seriously. A UFO lands…

Max: Crashed. And I am taking it seriously I'm just not obsessing over it like you.

Michael: Obsession isn't always a bad thing. Maybe they're enemy aliens on that ship.

Max: All the more reason to stay away.

Michael: Have you been body snatched or something.

Max: We have no reason to believe the ship was occupied. Even if it was the occupant probably died in the crash.

Michael: We didn't die in our crash. (Max gives Michael a look) What should I do with this thing?

Max: Keep watching. Make sure it doesn't hatch and release an army of enemy aliens.

Michael: I liked you better when you were brooding and paranoid.

Max smirks at him as he leaves and Michael continues to stare at the thing.

Back at the base. A whole bunch of men are dressed in White suits.

Scientist 1: (opens a curtained off area) Sir.

Scientist 2: Any sign of a door or cockpit?

Scientist 1: No, sir. Nothin yet. Watch your step sir.

Scientist: Commencing systems analysis. We are recording.

Scientist 2: What about a propulsions system?

Scientist 1: Nothing definitive. I don't know how this thing ever flew.

Scientist 2: Well it had one didn't it?

Scientist 1: We just haven't found it yet. Believe me we're working as fast as we can without damaging it further.

Someone started using a saw to break through and made sparks fly.

Scientist 1: Hey careful.

Scientist 2: No way to reverse engineer this thing

The second scientist puts his hand on a jutting rock and the thing jerks and the alien symbol appears.

Scientist 2: What the hell was that!

As they look on the chamber opens to reveal a baby.

Scientist 2: Oh my gosh.

He goes to take the baby and some force rips them apart.

The whole team die in an instant and the baby is taken.

In Liz's room.

Liz: It's really nice to be able to be close to you again, you know without…

Max: Setting something on fire.

Liz: Yeah.

Max: Yeah. You sure you're ok?

Liz: Yeah I'm fine. See. (she holds up her hand) No green in sight. We're ok.

Max: Are you sure this is safe, I mean, your dad is downstairs.

Liz: Yeah, he's working the grill. H-He won't come up.

Max: You sure?

Liz: Yes.

Suddenly Max's cellphone rings. Liz gets it and throws it across the room.

Liz: Where is that phone. Go away. (laughs)

Then Liz's phone rings.

Liz: Just ignore it ok.

Max: Mmhmm

Liz: K?

Max: Yeah.

Answering machine: You've got the Parker's but we're not here. Leave a message.

Mrs.Evans: (on the answering machine) Hi, Liz. It's Diane Evans. Max's mom. Um, I'm trying to find Max (they break apart) It's an emergency.

Max: That's a buzz kill.

Mrs. Evans: If you're there will you…

Liz: Hello. Hi Mrs. Evans. Um, Yes, yeah He's here. Hold on. One second.

She hands Max the phone.

Max: Mom, what's wrong. A family dinner. That's the emergency? (Liz starts nuzzling his ear) What kind of dinner's an emergency. Can we do this, this weekend? It's just Liz and I are studying.

Liz: (whispering) French. We're studying.

She laughs.

Max: Biology. Ok fine. Ten minutes. All right. Bye. (he hangs up) Sorry.

Liz: It's ok.

Max: Can we continue this after.

Liz: My dad will be finished working the grill in half an hour.

Max: Well, meet me back at Michael's. It's safer anyway.

Liz: What about Michael?

Max: I'll get rid of him.

Liz: Ok

They kiss.

At the remerez's apartment.

Jesse is sitting eating a cold tv dinner while Isabel is on the phone with her mom.

Isabel: Mom I don't want to argue with you about it. Is it really that big of a deal. Can't we just come…

Fine! Fine I'll come over. F-yes. We'll come over. Ok. Bye. (she hangs up) My mother wants us to go

Over there for dinner.

Jesse: What tonight?

Isabel: Right now.

Jesse: No. I'm already eating.

Isabel: So stop.

Jesse: Isabel.

Isabel: What!

Jesse: Look I really don't want to go over there.

Isabel: Neither do I but we're going.

Jesse: Go without me.

Isabel: Jesse. I've already told her that we're both coming. Can't you just pretend that everything is alright between us for one hour.

Jesse: I pretended for three straight days with your dad, Ok. I've been pretending since I found out what

You are. I am sick and tired of pretending.

Isabel: Welcome to my world. Ok, this is why I didn't want to drag you into all of this.

Jesse: But you did, Isabel! You did!

Isabel: Oh, here we go again! Let's hear it Jesse, let's hear it.

Jesse: What you expect me to get over this overnight?

Isabel: Fifteen days Jesse!

Back at the base.

FBI Agents are going over the video servaillance tape.

General: Play it again.

Someone rewinds the tape and all you hear is chaos and screaming.

General: That's enough. So we lost all sixteen?

Major Carlson: Yes sir. All eye-witnesses are dead. An automated security camera snapped this as it was leaving the building.

General: I want this thing contained. I want Roswell locked down and searched until this thing is found and destroyed. You understand me?

Major Carlson: Yes sir.

He leaves.

At the Valenti's.

Kyle and Jim come home with groceries.

Kyle: …On the way home tonight.

Jim: Yeah but I…

They walk into a mess like someone broke into the house.

They see blood on the fridge.

Jim drops the groceries.

Jim: Stay behind me. Stay behind me.

He goes to go get his gun.

Kyle: Holy. Is that blood?

Jim: Yeah I think so.

Kyle's door to his room slams.

They open the door and a bright flash blinds them along with a crash.

Jim turns on the light and finds that something went out through the window which was still smoking.

They hear helicopters flying around overhead.

At the Evan's house.

Mr.Evans is looking out the window at the helicopters.

Mr.Evans: What's going on out there?

Max: So, mom. What's for dinner?

Mrs. Evans: Uh, actually, I'm not cooking tonight.

Isabel: Oh, are we ordering in?

Mr. Evans: We're not actually having dinner. Um, (he grabs the clicker) your mother and I have something that we want to share with you all.

He turns on the videotape of Isabel using her powers.

She basically goes green.

On the tape.

Mrs. Evans: Isabel. Are you alright honey?

Isabel: Yes mom, I'm fine.

Mrs. Evans turns it off and they all are quiet not sure what to say.

Isabel: Oh gosh, I can't believe that you spied on me.

Mrs. Evans: I'm sorry honey. But we didn't know what else to do.

Mr. Evans: Can you please just tell us what this means? Who are you?

Max: We're your kids. (he stands)

Mr.Evans: Are you?

Isabel: Yes!

Suddenly there is a sound coming from the kitchen.

Mrs. Evans: What was that?

Max: I'll check it out.

Isabel: Oh, thanks a lot Max.

Max walks into the kitchen and there hiding in the shadows is a wounded Tess holding their son.

Tess: (as he goes to turn away) Max.

Max: Tess.

Tess: Please, hold him.

She falls to the floor in a faint.

Mr. Evans: Max, what is it? (they all walk in)

Max: It's my son.

Back at the Evan's. They lay Tess on Max's bed. Max watches over her until she wakes up.

Tess: Zan, where's Zan?

Max: You named the baby Zan?

Tess: Well he is your son, and that is your real name. Where is he?

Max: In the other room with his very confused grandparents.

She gets up to leave and Max forces the door closed with his powers.

Max: Sit…down.

Tess: I guess it would be too much to ask you to heal this.

Max: Making you feel better isn't one of my priorities.

Tess: Ok. I'm sure you've got a lot on your mind so let's hear it.

Max: I thought our baby couldn't survive in earth's atmosphere. I felt that when I connected with him.

Tess: It was a mind warp. Something I needed you to believe. I had to do whatever it took to get you to

Activate the granolith.

Max: Including killing Alex.

Tess: That's not what I meant to do.

Max: What was he collateral damage. I should kill you right now.

He goes to use his powers on Tess.

Tess: If you kill me, you kill Zan.

Max: What are you talking about?

Tess: My son, our son, we're linked Max. Physically. If I die, so does he.

Max: I don't believe you.

Tess: Then kill me. See if I'm lying. I know you Max. You would never take that risk. You're just going

To have to trust me.

In the livingroom.

Mrs. Evans is holding Zan.

Mrs. Evans: Ok.

Mr. Evans: Where do you think Tess has been all this time? A-and why do you think she's suddenly walked into our house now.

Mrs. Evans: Phillip.

Mr.Evans: Do you think Tess is somehow linked with what is going on with Isabel?

Mrs.Evans: Phillip, shh. It can wait.

Jesse walks over to Isabel.

Jesse: You all right?

Isabel: Are you kidding? Max is with Tess. My parents think I'm some kind of freak.

Jesse: Look. It's going to be ok. Max can take care of himself and your parents will love you regardless.

Isabel: (laughs) I don't know Jesse Do you?

Back in Max's room.

Max looks out at the helicopters.

Max: So what are you doing here? Why did you come back.

Tess: Kavar betrayed me. He rejected Zan as the heir and he was gonna kill him so I escaped.

Max: So that was you that crashed the other night.

Tess: Yeah. There was an accident.

Max: With the air force jet.

Tess: It was trying to shoot us down. I don't know why. Typical human response I guess. My ship was destroyed. And I woke up just as they were about to take Zan.

Max: So what did you do?

Tess: I protected my son.

Max: And how many people did you kill in the process.

Tess: I don't know.

Max: How many?

Tess: I don't remember.

Max: How Many!

Tess: Fifteen, maybe Twenty. I didn't stop to count.

Max: I can't believe I ever cared about you.

Tess: Well you did, and that was not a mind warp.

Max: None of that matters now. We have to get our son out of Roswell.

Back at the Valenti's.

They try to start cleaning up Tess' mess.

Kyle: Maybe we should try Max again.

Jim: Yeah, maybe we should.

There is a knock at the door.

Jim: Stay here.

He goes to get the door and 3 uniformed men are standing there.

Jim: Yeah.

Major Carlson: Good evening. I'm Major Carlson, United States Air Force. We've had a security breach

Out at Rogers Air Force base. And the dogs led us here.

Jim: Yeah, how about that.

Major Carlson: Is that blood on your shoe sir?

Jim: The dog certainly seems to think so.

Major Carlson: We're gonna have to search your house, Now! (He pushes the door open)

Jim: I'm afraid that uh…

The soldiers pile in the door.

Jim: I, uh…

Kyle looks out from his bedroom door.

Jim: Yeah I just came home and found it like this. Blood all over the floor.

Major Carlson shows him a picture of Tess.

Major Carlson: Have you seen this woman?

Jim: No. No. The, uh, house was empty. You think this little blonde girl did all this?

Major Carlson: Is there anyone else in the house?

Jim: No.

Soldier: Sir.

He goes into Kyle's room and sees the blown out window. Kyle left by the same window I assume.

Back at the Evans'

Isabel is looking out at the helicopters.

Mr and Mrs. Evans walk in with the baby.

Mr.Evans: Isabel. About this tape?

Isabel: Please dad. Don't make me do this right now.

The phone rings.

Isabel: I'll get it.

Jesse: (he gets up) You stay and talk. I'll get it.

She sits down o the chair.

Jesse picks up the phone. It's Kyle.

Jesse: Hello.

Kyle: Jesse, Jesse! Thank God. Listen to me. Look, this is, this is very important. There is an alien on the loose.

Jesse: Yeah we know. It's Tess.

Kyle: Tess is back?

Jesse: Yeah she's here. She brought Max's son.

Kyle: She has the baby? Are you kidding me? Ah, my brain is exploding. (he looks in the alleyway and

Sees a search truck) Look, look. These air force guys followed her scent to my place, they'll be there any second.

Jesse: Wha-what should we do?

Kyle: Get the hell outta there.

The truck drives by Kyle and he trys to hide the phone and himself.

Jesse: Look Kyle. This is actually a really bad time. Ok, I-I'm gonna have to call you back.

He hangs up the phone.

Kyle: Hello, Jesse. Jesse. You did not just do that.

Back in the livingroom.

Mr.Evans: Isabel we don't need a big explanation. I just, there's some things here that we just can't

Understand.

Jesse: Isabel. I need to talk to you in the kitchen, Now!

Mr. Evans: No,no. Can't this wait.

Jesse: It'll just be a minute.

She gets up and follows him into the kitchen.

Jesse: The military is coming for Tess and the baby.

Isabel: Ok. You go get my brother I will tell my parents we have to go.

Jesse: Why don't you tell them what is really going on. Maybe they could help us.

Isabel: Or turn us in.

Isabel walks back in to her parents.

Isabel: We have to go.

Mr.Evans: No, no. You're not leaving.

Isabel: Dad. Mom. Listen to me. There are people coming for Max's baby. Bad people.

Mrs. Evans: Isabel what are you talking about?

Suddenly there is a knock at the door.

Major Carlson: Major Carlson, United States Air Force. Open the door.

Mr.Evans makes a move to go get the door, but Isabel stops him.

Isabel: No. Dad, don't answer that. Please.

Mr.Evans: The United States Air Force. Those are the bad people you're talking about.

Isabel: Yes. They are coming for Max's baby.

Major Carlson: Open the door, United States Air Force.

Max walks in with Jesse.

Max: Mom give me the baby, we have to go now.

Mrs. Evans: What is going on here?

They knock again.

Isabel: Max's baby is an alien.

Mr. Evans: He's a what?

Isabel: So am I. That's how I was able to do those things on that tape.

Major Carlson knocks again.

Major carlson: Mr and Mrs. Evans. Open the door.

Max: It's true. We're different. But you're still your children. Help us please.

Major Carlson: Open the door or we'll be forced to break it down.

Mr. Evans gets up to answer the door.

Isabel: Dad!

Mrs. Evans gets up and hands Max the baby as Mr. Evans opens the door.

Major Carlson: We're here to search your home sir. You'll need to step aside.

Mr.Evans: Sorry I can't let you do that.

Major Carlson: I'm not asking permission.

Max takes the baby and leaves.

Mr.Evans: The US. Military has no juristiction here.

Major Carlson: Step aside sir.

Mr.Evans: Can you produce a search warrant.

Major Carlson: Sargeant.

He moves aside as the sargeant shoves his way in.

Max and Tess walk in to Michael's apartment.

Michael is watching tv and stands up and is ready to kill Tess when they walk in.

Michael: Tess you are not here.

Max: Michael, no.

He steps in front of Tess and the baby.

Michael: Maxwell get out of the way.

Max: Not until you calm down.

Michael: Whatever she told you she's lying.

Max: She has my son.

Michael: Well get the baby out of the way.

Max: No. He needs her. If you kill her my son will die.

Michael: Max. What the hell is she doing here?

Max: It's a long story. But we need to get them out of Roswell.

Michael: Yeah, my heart bleeds.

Tess: Nice to see you too, Michael.

Max: Hey, don't start.

He takes the baby and good thing to because Liz just walked up.

Michael: Ah, so you're the one that crashed in the desert the other night.

Tess: You always were the quick one Guerin.

Suddenly Tess is thrown back against the wall.

Michael and Max look over and there is Liz in all her glory.

Liz: Get up, Bitch!

Liz uses her powers again on a very stunned Tess.

Liz: I'll kill you. You're a murderer! I'll kill you!

Max hands Michael the baby and grabs Liz.

Max: Liz. Liz, no!

He manages to get her back into the hall. Go Liz!

Michael: Welcome back.

Liz: What. What you so you trust her now?

Max: No, Liz. Far from it. But Tess and my son are linked. Killing her would kill him.

Liz: Yeah. That's convienient.

Max: Liz I have no other choice. I have to believe her.

Liz: This is insane. She betrayed all of us. She killed Alex.

Max: I know.

Liz: No! She has to pay for it. Max, promise me, when this is all over Tess will pay for what she did.

Max: I promise.

Liz: Let me know when it's over.

She storms out.

Kyle: Hey Liz, is everything ok? Guess not.

Tess: Kyle. Thank God you're here.

Kyle: Don't come near me.

Tess: Kyle. At least give me a chance to explain.

Kyle: Why haven't you killed her yet?

Michael: Max wouldn't let me.

Max: Come on, Zan. I don't think it's serious.

He takes the baby from Tess.

Tess: Be careful with him, Max.

Kyle: So what are you doing here?

Tess: Ask one of them, I'm sick of explaining.

Kyle: Ok, why don't you explain what the hell you were doing in our house earlier.

Tess: I thought you'd help me.

Kyle: Then why'd you run away in such a hurry?

Tess: I was protecting my son.

Kyle: He wasn't in danger.

Tess: You're father had a gun. Insincts took over. You're lucky I didn't kill you.

Kyle: (laughs) I guess I owe you one. Oh, actually. No.

Tess: Kyle.

Kyle: We took you into our home, Tess. We protected you and how did you repay us?

You brainwashed me into carrying Alex's dead body.

Tess: I never meant to hurt you.

Kyle: Well TOO LATE!

Tess: You've never even heard my side of the story.

Kyle: You have a side? The murderer has a side.

Tess: I was raised by a killer, Kyle. A sick and twisted man…

Kyle: Don't play the victim here Tess. You know of all the aliens I've met. You're the only one who

Has no soul.

He walks away.

Back at the Evans'

The Air Force is going through the house and the Evan's are sitting at the table waiting.

Mrs. Evans: This doesn't make any sense Isabel. You don't look any different.

Isabel: I'm half human.

Mrs. Evans: And the other half?

Isabel: Mom, please. Not now.

Mr. Evans: How long have you known?

Jesse: About a month.

Mr. Evans: And you're ok with it.

Jesse: I'm trying. I mean, she's still the woman I fell in love with. She's still Isabel.

He grabs her hand.

The Air Force trashes the house. They find the tape that Mrs. Evans taped of Isabel.

At the Crashdown.

Liz: I blasted Tess and she went flying.

Maria: Wait a minute. Back up a second. You blasted her?

Liz: mmhmm.

Maria: I thought your little power flare ups were over with.

Liz: Yeah me too. But I saw her and all of this, energy just came out of me. I mean, all of this,

Like anger and hatred. Ugh. I-it. I just though that that part of my life was dead and buried.

Maria: Wait a minute, no. That part of your life was never dead and buried. I mean, you've never truly

Gotten over that.

Liz: Uh, ok but. I just want Tess out of my life.

Maria: Well it's easy enough. Just walk over to one of those men over there and tell them where she's hiding.

She looks over at the men sanding outside the Crashdown.

Liz: No, I-I can't do that.

Maria: Fine I'll do it.

She gets up to leave.

Liz: No. Sit down. What?

Maria: I am just, I am so sick of seeing my best friend like this?

She shrugs her shoulders.

Liz: Like what?

Maria: Like a victim. I mean, you don't have to be a victim. Forgive Max or get him out of your life.

It's one or the other. Be, you have to make a decision. It's your decision. It's your life.

On the Tv.

Reporter: An Air force truck filled with 3 tons of explosives was stolen earlier this evening. The military

Has set up check points on every road leading out of Roswell.

Tess: Nice cover story.

Kyle: We're screwed.

Max: No we're not.

Michael: What'd you got?

Max: I dunno. Yet.

Helicopters flash overhead and they all look up.

Michael: Maxwell we're screwed.

The phone rings and Max picks it up.

Max: Hello? What?

Michael gets up and Max hangs up.

Max: That was Isabel. The Air Force found the baby's blankets and the dog picked up the scent. They'll be here in no time.

Tess: We gotta go. Now! I'm getting Zan.

Michael: Hey you're not the one callin the shots around here. But Maxwell she's right we gotta get the hell outta here.

Tess comes back in with the baby.

Max: Do you have enough energy to mind warp?

Tess: I think so.

Max: Ok, great. I'll grab the car.

Max grabs his coat and keys and leaves.

Tess: Michael have you got any milk?

Michael: Uh, just snapple.

Tess: Great.

Kyle: Can't you breast feed?

They leave.

In the car.

They come up on a road block.

Max: Here they come. (he looks back at Tess) Get ready.

She closes her eyes just as the soldier walks up with a flashlight.

To him the back seat is empty. Then dogs walk up.

Soldier: (he holds up a picture of Tess) Have either of you seen this woman?

They look at the picture.

Max: mm-mm. I haven't seen her.

The dog jumps up at the car and start barking at the back seat.

Soldier: Can I have you open your trunk sir?

Max: Sure.

He gets out and opens the trunk.

Soldier: All right.

As Max closes the trunk he walks back around.

Max gets back into the car.

Soldier: You guys are clear to go through.

Suddenly the baby starts crying and breaks Tess'mind warp.

Soldier: Hold it right there. (he shines the light on Tess and the baby) Get out of the car.

(He aims a gun at Tess) Now!

Tess: I'm sorry I couldn't hold it.

Michael: Maxwell! Go, go go!

Michael uses his powers and blows up the jeep that the other soldiers were standing by.

Max punches the car on reverse and drives away with the soldiers shooting at them.

Max: Get down! (as the get farther away) Is he ok?

Tess: Yeah. Just get outta here!

Back at the Evans'house. Isabel and her parents are still cleaning up the mess when the phone rings.

Isabel: Hello?

Kyle: They didn't make it.

Isabel: What happened?

Kyle: They got turned back. We need to meet back at your apartment. It's the only safe place left.

Isabel: Ok, I'll be there.

Mr. Evans: Are Max and the baby ok?

Isabel: For now, we've gotta go.

Mrs. Evans: Isabel. Honey please. Be careful.

She nods and they put their coats on and leave.

Mrs. Evans: Phillip. (He hugs her)

At the Remerez's apartment.

Max lays the baby down on Isabel's bed. He holds his sons hand and smiles.

They share a tender moment and then leaves.

Max: Zan's asleep.

Jim: You're running out of time Max.

Kyle: We need a plan B.

Tess: Go, go without me. Just get Zan to safety.

Max: You said he couldn't survive without you. Another lie?

Michael: I knew it.

Tess: You were going to kill me. I was just trying to stay alive. To keep our son safe. Now the only way

To keep him safe is to let him go.

Max: So the baby's not linked to you. At all?

Tess: No. Zan is completely human.

Isabel: What?

Tess: That's why they rejected him on Antar. That's why I had to come back.

Max: How is that possible?

Liz: It's genetics, Max. She's half human, you're half human. You both have the DNA, it makes sense.

Michael: Wait, let me get this straight. If the baby doesn't need you to survive, then we can kill you.

Max: Michael.

Isabel: We could. But the Air Force would still be looking for an alien. Looking for us.

Michael: If the Air Force wants an alien then why don't we just give them one.

Isabel: Turn her in?

Maria: Yeah then they won't be looking for an alien and they'll leave us alone.

Kyle: I'm sensing a plan B.

Max: No. They would throw her in a white room and study her like a lab rat for the rest of her life. I've been there and I wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy.

Isabel: Max this isn't a decision that you get to make. It affects all three of us.

Maria: Oh no,no,no this is not an alien decision only. She killed Alex. She killed my best friend. I think that we should all get to vote.

Max: All right. Fair enough. Let's put it to a vote. Yes, we turn her in. No, we try to help her.

Maria: I say yes, turn her in.

Jim: We shouldn't be doing this. I vote no.

Isabel: I trusted you. And Alex...I vote yes.

Max: I vote no. Michael.

Michael: Do it. Turn her in.

Max: Jesse, what do you say?

Jesse: I never met her or Alex. I shouldn't get a vote.

Max: Fair enough. Kyle?

Kyle: I don't know. (he looks at his dad) No. I can't do it.

Maria: All right Liz. Cast your vote, break the tie.

Liz and Tess look at each other.

Liz: I vote no.

Maria: What? Are you crazy?

Liz: I made my vote. (she walks away with a shocked Tess staring after her.)

Max: So what are we going to do?

Jim: Wait. Pray they don't find us.

Later that night while everyone is sleeping.

Tess goes over to Liz and wakes her up.

Tess: Liz. Wake up.

Liz: What.

Tess: Why didn't you vote against me?

Liz: Because I'm not a killer Tess.

Tess: I need a favor. I need you to drive me somewhere.

At the Air Force Base.

Liz and Tess are in Maria's car talking.

Tess: Max loves you. Every time we were together. Every time we kissed. He was thinking of you.

He had these flashes that I saw and they were always of you.

Liz: Why are you telling me this?

Tess: Because I know how much it must have hurt you.

Liz: So you're really gonna go and do this huh?

Tess: At least I can do one good thing with my life.

Liz: You just did. Hey, Tess. You're not going to let them throw you in the white room are you?

Tess: No.

She gets out of the car. Burns her way through the fence. Liz hears Shouting and gunfire and then the place blows up.

Back at the apartment the baby cries as if he knows.

One week later at the Evan's house.

Zan is playing in his bassonette, while Max stares down at him.

Mr. Evans walks in to get a coffee.

Mr.Evans: Don't you think you should get some sleep?

Max: Didn't I tell you? Aliens don't need sleep.

They laugh.

Mr.Evans: You don't have to watch him every second.

Max: It's hard to tear myself away.

Mr.Evans: I know how you feel. That's how I felt when we first adopted you and Isabel. The love you feel for him, Max. That's how your mother and I feel about you. No matter what.

Max: They're out there dad. I know it, I can feel it. They're coming for him.

Mr.Evans: No one's coming for him, Max. Your son is safe here. It's been over for days.

Max: It'll never be over.

Mr.Evans: Max.

Max: I've been dealing with this a lot longer than you have. It's a constant battle.

Mr.Evans: And your mother and I have been a part of that battle haven't we? Well, I'm sorry. But we can help you fight them now.

Max: We have been fighting them. And if not these guys it will be someone else. I just want my son to live a normal life. Away from all of this.

Mr. Evans: He will live a normal life, Max. He will.

Max: Not if I'm a part of it.

Mr.Evans: What are you saying?

Max: He's human. He deserves to live a normal human life. Look all I've wanted for the past year, more than anything else in my life was to find him. And now that I finally have I, I think that I'm going to have to give him up.

Mr.Evans: Max.

Max: I'm a marked man. And so are you. Aw, maybe if things were different. Maybe in the future there will be a way. But right now. I have to ensure Zan's safety (he reaches over and touches him) And the only way to do that is to get him away from me. Can you help me?

Mr.Evans: Are you sure about this?

Max nods.

Mr.Evans: I, uh, I have a law school buddy who handles things like this. He's in New York though.

Max: The further away the better. The less I know about where Zan's going to end up the safer he'll be. Just promise me. You'll put him with a good family. (Mr.Evans nods) I want him to have parent like, well just like you and mom. Can you make sure he gets that.

Mr.Evans: (nods) Yeah. (he puts his hand on Max's shoulder) I can do that.

Outside the Evan's house. Max and his son spend the last few moments bonding while they are waiting for

his mom and dad to get ready to take him.

As his mom and dad walk out he picks the baby up.

Liz is sitting with him for moral support.

Mr.Evans: Max. It's ah, it's time.

He touches the baby's forhead and it glows for a second. Mrs. Evans looks over stunned.

Mrs.Evans: What was that?

Max: Just a memory.

He gets up and walks to his parent's car with the baby in his arms and Liz by his side.

When he gets to the car his parents are waiting, he kisses his son and hands Mrs. Evans takes the baby and puts him in the car seat. As he watches his mom put the baby in the car seat he starts to cry and Liz grabs his hand.

Liz: I'm here. (he looks down at her) I'll always be here.

Max hugs Liz as they drive away.
