The situation is getting a little out of hand down in Roswell, New Mexico.

After weeks of wondering who was really behind the murder of Rosa (Amber Midthunder) and her two friends, we finally learned who the real villain was in last week’s episode. *Stop reading here if you’re behind; spoilers ahead.*

With only two episodes to go, the Pod Squad is still in desperate need of answers about Noah’s (Karan Oberoi) involvement, and in an exclusive clip from Tuesday’s episode, Michael (Michael Vlamis), Alex (Taylor Blackburn) and Kyle (Michael Trevino) are heading on a road trip to get them! I wonder who will pick the car tunes?

“The last two episodes are a two-parter that will provide some answers — and questions — about the aliens’ history,” creator Carina Adly MacKenzie tells EW. “We’ll finally go to Caulfield, the secret government facility that Kyle’s father was trying to tell him about from his deathbed. We’ll see Max and Michael on opposite sides of a battle.” And some more #Malex action on the road?! “Toward the end of the season, Alex and Michael have a transformative experience together — it’s the best work Tyler and Vlamis have done all season, maybe the best work in their respective careers,” teases MacKenzie.

On the Max (Nathan Parsons) and Liz (Jeanine Mason) front, things between them have been headed in the right direction in the past few episodes, but MacKenzie says there are still details of Rosa’s murder that are gnawing at Liz’s heart. “We’ll see it come up in a surprising, and I think very beautiful way,” she says. “We’re definitely going to see Max and Liz’s first fight as a couple before the end of the season. Nathan and Jeanine have crazy chemistry even when they’re fighting, so we can really do anything with Max and Liz and count on the fire to still be there.”

Fighting we can cope with, but surely no one else has to die? “By the end of the season, there will be at least one more casualty on that list,” warns MacKenzie, who also shares she’s always been resolute on how season 1 will end. “The last few minutes of the finale are going to change everything,” she says. “When we pitched our plan to the studio and the network, we got a lot of, ‘Are you SURE? Like…really sure? Like really, really, really, very sure?’ But I’ve had the final act in my mind since I wrote the pilot. It didn’t change at all.” Oh, boy.

Roswell, New Mexico airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. on The CW. Watch the clip above.
