Roswell Series Timeline






Below is a timeline I have created using dates from the show and the Silver Hand Print.


It is the most complete & inclusive Roswell timeline ever available!
***If anyone has additional dates, please let me know and I will credit you.***

Some of the dates contradict each other or don't make sense. They list the same event on two different days,
or put the gang in school on Saturday or Sunday, but I have listed them as they were. Also you might
notice that on some days the gang seem to be going to work before school. Perhaps they have work release?

I have also included the source where I got each date in ().
A list of episode abbreviations is at the bottom of the page.
Items that didn't come from the transcripts but came from the SHP, Atherton's Bio, etc, I've included links
to the orig reference so you can see the entire document. Just click on the word Source next to them.

I have included some happenings that we don't know definate dates for, placing them in a date range.

I've also included some things that never made it to the show but were supposedly in earlier script versions or cut scenes - abbreviated as (CS) cut scenes



****It should be current up through the end of season 2.****
I'm really not caring about season 3, so I'm not including any dates for it.






If you need to jump to an episode, click on the title.
You will notice that 'End of the World' and 'Summer of '47' have two listings.
That is because they both had content from different time periods. Click on the date you are interested in to jump to it.

the events
in Summer

the order of
some events
is unclear

- the Granolith is installed in the pod chamber (this could have been before or after the capture)
- a communication orb is buried near the pod chamber (SH) (this could have been before or after the capture)
- a shapeshifter goes to live in a cave on the Mesiliko reservation and takes the name Nasedo (B)
- Nasedo retrieves the healing stones and pendant necklace from where they were hidden (the army didn't have either item, so they must have been hidden somewhere, possibly near the crash site. he might have retrieved the items at different times, or possibly he told River Dog where the healing stones were hidden when he used them to heal him)
- Nasedo is tested by the Mesiliko elders and would have died if he didn't share his secret with a young River Dog, who used the healing stones to save Nasedo's life (B)

- someone (presumably James Atherton) puts the necklace in Atherton's secret basement in the geodesic dome in Marathon, TX (RD)

(date are never given for these events, but I am guessing Nasedo wouldn't stick around long if he thought someone was coming for him)
November 16 - Nasedo kills James Atherton (285S)
- the corpse is discovered by Sheriff James Valenti Sr (I am assuming that Atherton was killed on the same day his body was found by the Sheriff. River Dog saw the body, so why would he wait to report the death) (P)

Pilot

Day 1?
September 17
- Liz was shot at 3:52pm according to Sheriff Valenti's report (SHP) - source
- Larry Trilling, says he witnessed the shooting at the Crashdown on Sept 17 (TC)
- The Roswell Soundtrack info also lists the shooting as Sept 17 (Sndtrk)
Day 1?
September
18 or 19
- Liz was shot on Sept 18th or 19th according to her journal. (P)

These dates are all messed up
The 17th was a Friday, the 18th was a Saturday, the 19th was a Sunday.
The day after the shooting is a school day. The Sheriff pulls Max over and says
“We had a little trouble at the Crashdown Cafe yesterday.” (P)
Obviously the shooting had to happen on Sunday the 19th for the next day to be Monday.

So when did the shooting really happen? Your guess is as good as mine. Use what ever date you need to make your story work, I say. lol
Day 2
September 20
the next day
- Liz confronts Max at school and he tells her he is 'Not of this Earth' (P)
- Kyle sees the handprint on Liz's stomach (P)
- Max reverses the connection so Liz can see him (P)
September 22 - A flier gives the date for the 10th annual Crash Festival as Friday September 22nd (but Fri Sept 1999 was the 24th) (P)
Day 3?
September 23
– mentioned by Liz when she is writing in her journal. I'm Liz Parker and five days ago I died. (P)
Day 4?
September 24
– mentioned by Liz when she is writing in her journal. I'm Liz Parker and five days ago I died. (P)
- Sheriff Valenti shows Liz the pic of the corpse with the silver handprint (P)
- Liz confronts Max about himself and his powers (P)
- Max, Michael and Isabel decide to leave town, but Liz convinces them to stay and trick the Sheriff. (P)
- The Crash Festival (P)

Liz writes in her journal about the shooting on the 23rd and the 24th, and that she died 5 days ago. Obviously it couldn't have been 5 days ago from two different dates, and it appears that it was the same journal entry when Liz entered two different dates.

I think there are a couple of ways to make sense of this. Perhaps she was writing it late at night on the 23rd, so she started with the date of the 23rd, but the second time she mentioned the date it was after mignight, so technically it was the next day even though it was just a short time later, so she put the 24th. Ta-da, two different dates in the same journal entry.

Of course it would still seem like 5 days ago to her that she was shot, because she hadn't been to bed yet.

Or maybe she was just really tired or excited and messed up the dates. lol

November 9 - Kathleen Topolsky email to FBI. Reports that she suggested to the History teacher to do a biographical asignment & the kids going out of town, south on 285 and she thinks it is to Atherton's house (SHP) - source

(the date on the history assignment given to the gang is Nov 4, but an email from Topolsky says the gang is leaving town on the 9th, so obviously the dates don't agree. I think it is likely that the teacher who made the assignment either put the wrong date on it or waited a few days to hand it out)

unknown - Pierce took control of the Special Unit ousting Agent John Stevens (SHP) - source

The last time Agent Stephens is mentioned is in the episode 'Into the Woods' when Hansen tells Valenti that he called (thanks to Tzigone for sending this in). That was in early Jan.

****They really messed up the dates in season 2, especially in the first part of the season.
I've put them down as they were mentioned in the show or the SHP, but you have to
take a lot of them with a grain of salt- or a whole truck load - lol****

Some dates put the kids in school on the weekends, or have the same event listed on 2 different days, or have really long or short intervals between events that seem unlikely. It seems pretty reasonable that the dates from Whitaker's diary are completely WRONG! They differ so much from the dates on the show, and would start the kids in school in the middle of Oct.



Skin & Bones

Day 1
September 25
(SHP - Whitaker Diary)
or

September 29
(SHP - Whitaker Diary)
- Whitaker Diary. Pierce is gone, his apartment empty. Whitaker connects his change with his trip to Roswell, and plans to go there herself to investigate (SHP) - source
Day 2

or
Sept 4
(S - DTM)

(SHP - Whitaker Diary) or
Sept
(S - DTM)
- Max and Liz figure out where the bones are, and Max has a plan to throw suspicion off Michael. (S&B)
- Nasedo also finds a piece of skin, and becomes alarmed. We see him through the same distorted, blurry vision. (S&B)

She can smell Max on Liz so she knows Liz in involved too. Whitaker mortally wounds Nasedo. (SHP) - source (if Whitaker found out Liz was involved then she would have started taping her calls the next work day, possibly making the next day Sept 6, if you go by the dates on Liz's recorded calls)
Day 4
(the next day)
October 8
(DTM - SHP Whitaker Diary)
or
Sept 6

- Max asks Liz if they can go back, and give her a vision of them together (S&B)
- Nasedo comes to Max's window, horribly injured, and tells him, 'the Skins are among you', and dies in Max's arms. Max is unable to heal him. (S&B)

(Maria mentions that their school starts on Monday - so it looks like school in Roswell starts really late in the year - either that or Whitaker was on drugs when she wrote the date in her diary.

Liz finds a CD in Whitaker's office in the epi 'Suprise', and discovers that Whitaker has been recording her phone calls. The date on the CD is Sept 6-19. It would make more sense if this date was right. Then they would be starting school in Sept.)

This episode goes from the present to the past with flashbacks to 1947. The current day is listed here. For the '47 dates, see the top of the page under 1947.

I am assuming this is the day after Surprise, because it is the first time Isabel is showing Tess, Michael and Max the granolith that she found at the end of that episode. It seems likely they would go the next day.
Day 1
October 26
most likely
(whole epi in one day)
- Isabel shows Max, Michael and Tess the granolith (So47)
- Michael is assigned to interview a veteran for his class, and meets Hal Carver who tells him his story about the '47 crash (So47)
- Michael shows Hal his powers and tells him he saved him (So47)







November 6 - Date on letter about the investigation into the 'Special Unit' (SHP) - source








End of the World

This episode goes from the future, 2014, back to the present. The current days are listed here. For the dates from Future Max's time, see the bottom of the page under Future Max's Timeline.
Day 1
Nov 22 (DTM - H)
- FMax goes back in time to get Liz to help him change the future (EOTW)
Day 2
Nov 23 (DTM - H)
(appears to be the next day)
- FMax tells Liz that she has to help him get his younger self to fall out of love with him and go to Tess (EOTW)
- Michael investigates Courtney thinking she is an alien or a government agent (EOTW)
- Maria finds Michael at Courtney's house, thinks the worst, breaks up with him, and tells Alex (EOTW)
- FMax tells Liz in the future they eloped at nineteen to Vegas and got married in an Elvis chapel, and were happy together (EOTW)
- Liz sets up Tess with Max, but Max sees through it and asks her to the Gomez concert, which she refuses (EOTW)
- Liz goes to Max and tells him she can't be with him because she wants to be safe (EOTW)
- FMax starts to disappear, but doesn't, and tells Liz she has to do something to save them all (EOTW)
Day 3
Friday
Nov 24 (DTM - H)
(appears to be the next day)
- Alex punches Michael for cheating on Maria (EOTW)
- Michael kisses Courtney and discovers she is a Skin. He tries to blast her, but she escapes (EOTW)
- Liz arranges for Max to catch he and Kyle in bed, apparantely naked. (EOTW)
- Max is devistated and Tess comforts him (EOTW)
- FMax gives Liz her wedding dance and then disappears (EOTW)

(Max asks Liz to go to the Gomez concert on Friday. If you look closely at the tickets he bought, you can see there is a date of Oct 20-something on them. Perhaps that is the date Max purchased the tickets and not the date of the concert?

The concert couldn't have been in Oct.

Isabel's birthday was Oct 25th Wed, Summer of '47 was probably the day after, Oct 26th Thurs. So the only Friday left in Oct is the 27th. But there were at least two days between So47, so that puts the concert in Nov.)







November 25 - the date that it was reported Congresswoman Vanessa Whitaker died in a car crash outside Copper Summit, AZ (H)








Harvest

Day 1
November 26 (DTM - H)
- there is a tv report about Whitaker's death but the gang wonders how anyone knows she is dead (H)
- they go to her office to investigate and find a suspicious letter from the Universal Friendship League in Copper Summit, AZ (H)
- Max, Liz, Isabel and Tess go to investigate, while Michael and Maria stay in Roswell to find Courtney (H)

(Isabel mentions that the day before was the 25th. She also says Whitaker died two weeks ago, but clearly it has been a month since Oct 25th when Isabel killed Whitaker on her birthday. It also puts the kids in shcool on the 26th, a Sunday.)

(Also Tess mentions that Max had a rough night last, making it seem that last night was the night he saw Liz and Kyle in bed together. But this is Nov 26th which is Sunday, and Max went to Liz's on the night of the Gomez concert, which was Friday. So maybe he's had several rough nights?)
Day 2
November 27 (DTM - H)
(the next day)
- In Copper Summit, Liz, Max, Isabel and Tess, meet Whitaker's family, and are asked to stay the night (H)
- Courtney goes to Michael's apartment and tells him she is not an enemy and follows him in a political way (H)
- Max questions Liz about what happened with Kyle and she tells him she made a mistake and slept with Kyle (H)
- Michael, Maria and Courtney drive to Copper Summit to save the others, and tells them about the husks and the harvest (H)
Day 3
November 28 (DTM - H)
(the next day)
- Max, Liz and Tess go to the funeral and are attacked by Skins (H)
- Isabel follows Nicholas and finds the growing husks, and he tells her that her lover Khivar is waiting for her return (H)
- Courtney destroys the machine growing the husks, turning them to dust, to save the gang and they escape (H)
- Michael saves Courtney's husk (H)

Max in the City

Day 1
two days later (MITC)
Tuesday
Nov 21st
(DTM - MTD)
- Max and Tess are in New York (MITC)
- Lonnie and Rath meet with Nicholas who tells them to make sure Max gets to the summit. They need the granolith to go home. (MITC)
- Lonnie and Rath take Max and Tess to their home and tell him he has to meet the emissary and pass a test (MITC)

Thanksgiving
Nov 23rd
(DTM - OTM)
- Maria tells Liz there is a rumor around school that she slept with Kyle (MITC)
- Rath takes Max to the emissary who pushes a light through his head to see the royal seal on his brain. (MITC)

(Although there it no proof, I am guessing that these two events took place on Thursday, Thanksgiving. It doesn't seem likely that Rath would wait 2 days after going to the emissary to to explain about the royal seal. It also doesn't seem likely that Liz would wait 2 days after lying to Maria about FM to tell her the truth.)
Day 3
Friday
Nov 24th
(DTM - OTM)
- Liz tells Maria about Future Max (MITC)
- Rath explains to Max and Tess about the royal seal and that the other four worlds will be sending representatives to the summit (MITC)

- Isabel tries to contact Max, but can't and Ava says Max changed Liz when he healed her and she can contact Max (MITC)
- Max rejects the deal and Nicholas blames Max for there being no peace (MITC)
- Rath grabs Tess and Lonnie tries to kill Max, but Liz appears to Max and saves him (MITC)
- Max finds Tess and she says she doesn't know what happened to Lonnie and Rath. (MITC)
Day 5
could be
the next day
Sunday
Nov 26th
(DTM - OTM)
- Back in Roswell, Max thanks Liz for saving his life and asks one more time if she really slept with Kyle. (MITC)

(the days are really unclear on MITC. there are a lot of extra days, and the dates aren't explained at all. I made some guesses about which days things took place, but there is obviously a lot of wiggle room.

The Summit took place Nov 25 according to OTM. The Dupes met the pod squad at the UFO Center on the Sat before thanksgiving, making it Sat the 18th. Max and Tess were in New York two days after leaving Roswell. other than that, it is up for interpertation.)







December 9 - Alex leaves Roswell for Sweden (ITL&ITB)








A Roswell Christmas Carol

Day 1
Dec 21st
(DTM - ARCC)
- Max and Michael see the man get hit by the car while trying to save his daughter (ARCC)
Day 2
Dec 22nd
(ARCC)
- Max sees the ghost of the man, who blames Max for not saving him (ARCC)
- Michael asks Maria for extra time to exchange gifts, but she says no (ARCC)
- Brody tells Maria he will be gone for a few days (ARCC)
- Tess is disappointed that the Valenti's don't celebrate Christmas (ARCC)
- Michael asks Isabel's advice about getting a gift for Maria (ARCC)
- Maria's caroling group go to the house of a 5 year old with cancer and she is surprised to find it is Brody's house (ARCC)
- Max goes to Liz and tells her about being haunted and the ghost tells Max he needs to restore the balance (ARCC)
Day 3
December 23
(ARCC)
- Maria visits Brody and finds out his daughter has incurable cancer (ARCC)
- Michael shows Isabel his gift for Maria a Jetta bumper, and she says it isn't accpetible, and leaves some gifts at his house (ARCC)
- The Valentis and Tess run into Amy Deluca at the grocery store (ARCC)
- The 23rd Annual Roswell Holiday Pagent (ARCC)
- Maria tells Liz about Brody and his daughter, Liz tells Max, and the ghost approves of the idea to heal her (ARCC)

(To me the below stuff seems like it should be a different day, since they only saw Amy that morning at the store, and how could Tess have invited her to dinner for that same day and been cooking for 20 hours? But she clearly says it is the 23rd, and the day before, Michael clearly says it is 3 days to Christmas, making that the 22nd.)

- Tess prepares Christmas dinner for the Valentis and invites Amy (ARCC)
- Max goes to heal Sydney, but she has been taken to the hospital (ARCC)
- Max and Michael go to the hospital and Max heals all the kids (ARCC)
Day 4
Dec 24th
(DTM - ARCC)
- Maria goes to Michael's house and they exchange gifts (ARCC)
- Max goes to Liz to thank her for telling him about Sydney and she invites him to mass (ARCC)
- Michael takes Max to see how happy Brody is with his daughter (ARCC)
- Max goes to mass and tells Liz he believes in her (ARCC)



The dates are pretty messed up. On day two Michael mentions it is three days to Christmas, making it the 22nd.

But if you read Isabel's diary, the dates are all off. She has day two marked as the 20th, the day she is going to the dinner at the nursing home and the rehersal for the holiday pageant. Perhaps she wrote the events on the wrong day? Or maybe Michael is on drugs.

So if we ignore Michael comment about 3 days to Christmas, we could move everything back and make the dates match with what Isabel has in her diary, and that would give us extra days to put Amy's dinner with the Valenti's on a different day than they saw her at the store. If we go with Isabel's dates, this is how it comes together.
Day 1
Dec 19th
(DTM - ARCC)
- Max and Michael see the man get hit by the car while trying to save his daughter (ARCC)
Day 2

Just a note about dates in this epi -
Valenti mentions it is January on the day I figured to be the first day of Feb. But that is the day after he got fired, so he might be confused.

Also, on the day Tess tells Kyle she will move out she mentions it was the night before when he said he wanted to protect his family. But there was clearly a day in between, so she should have said two days ago.









Disturbing Behavior

Day 1
(same day as the end of WAF)
Friday
February 2
- Laurie escapes from custody, and Michael and Maria save her from the kidnapper who is shooting at them (DB)
Day 2
(next day)
Saturday
February 3
- Maria and Michael are driving around with Laurie, trying to get her to trust them (DB)
- Amy is worried about Maria and tells Sean to bring Liz to her house (DB)
- Grant finds a sniper rifle in the woods and turns it in (DB)

Sunday
February 4
- Michael, Maria and Laurie arrive at her grandfather's house, and discover he died years before (DB)

- Isabel uses her powers to contact Larek through Brody and they tell him about the parasites. He tells them the Earth is infected and to leave the planet. (DB)


The dates on this one are tricky. Here is my reasoning -
Agent Duff mentions at the beginning of the episode that she has been questioning Laurie for two days. Laurie was taken back into custody on Monday, Jan 29th
But when Amy talks to Maria and Michael on their 'trip', she mentions it is the weekend. So I'm thinking that they might have given Laurie a day or so to recover before questioning her. Then she escapes on Friday night, when Michael and Maria are watching. That would put the first day of 'DB' as the same day as the end of 'WAF', just later that night.

Michael says he has been having nightmares for the last two weeks. It is unclear if it is exactly two weeks - which would make it Tues, Feb 14, or if a little more than two weeks putting it at the weekend Fri, Feb 17.

Day 1 is a school day, and Max mentions that the debate team is going on a trip for the next two days. Possibly they might be gone on a weekday, but it could be a weekend trip.

The dates in this are a bit messed up. Alex's gravestone is seen in the episode 'Departure' and lists Alex's death date as April 29th.

According to dialog in the show, and what the characters were wearing, the episode happened in 3 days, making his funeral May 1st.

It seems odd to me that Liz, Maria, Isabel and the others went to school the day after Alex died, but that is what the show says. And if his funeral was on May 1st, they got his body processed and the ceremony organized very quickly, especially when Valenti and Hansen seem to still be investigating. (do they allow funerals when a cause of death is still to be determined? - I have no idea).

Liz finds the concert tickets Alex bought and she says the concert is on the same day as the funeral. The date on the tickets is May 5th, which seems a more likely date for the funeral.

Future Max's Timeline

I think it can be assumed that everything that happened in the show up through 'Summer of '47' also happened in Future Max's time. The timeline only started to change when he came back in time and made Liz change things.

We don't know very much about what happened in his time, but what we do know is listed below.







2000
Nov 23 (DTM - H) - Max asks Liz to go to the Gomez concert with him - Liz says no (EOTW)
Friday
Nov 24 (DTM - H)
- Max comes to Liz's room to take her to the concert, but they don't go and end up making love. After that they are inseperable. (EOTW)







2002
- Max and Liz elope in Las Vegas at the Elvis Chapel at age 19 (EOTW)
- Max and Liz invite Maria, Isabel, Michael and Alex to a dive outside Phoenix where they dance and celebrate their wedding all night (EOTW)







Some additional things happened  sometime between 2000 and 2014 that we don't have firm dates for and don't know how long they lasted, so I've just listed them in order below.

- Max treats Tess worse and worse (This could have been before or after Max and Liz got married, we don't know.)(EOTW)
- Tess leaves town eventually. (This could have been before or after Max and Liz got married, we don't know.) (EOTW)
- Their enemies invade the Earth (EOTW)
- They fight a thousand battles (EOTW)







2014

- Two weeks before the Earth falls, Isabel is killed (EOTW)

- Twenty-five minutes before the Earth falls, Michael is killed (EOTW)

- Moments before the Earth falls, Future Max & Liz enter the Granolith room, and Future Max goes back in time to get Liz to help him change history (EOTW)
