Dr.-"I feel as if you've buried something. Your parents are concerned about you, Max. Deeply concerned. Max, I want you to know that however unique you think you're problems may be - there are millions of teenagers out there going through exactly what you're going through right now. Let me assure you this is all normal teenage stuff.
Can you try and tell me what's been going on?"
Max-"Well, I guess the natural place to start is...that I'm an alien hybrid. Actually, you know, human DNA mixed with alien DNA-that kind of thing. Oh, I almost forgot...my sister Isabel and our friend Michael are also a little green around the gills. We didn't know where we came from, who sent us, or why. For the last ten years, we've been aging much like humans. But clearly...there are differences.
From the beginning, we had the instinct to keep this to ourselves; to hide in plain sight. Then one day last fall, everything changed.
The six of us were connected by the secret we shared. There was also Tess, a hybrid like us, part human-part alien. And then there was Nacedo. He's a shapeshifter, which means he can take on any human form. A skill that comes in handy since there are people out there who would do anything to find us. And if they found us, there was no limit to what they would do. Fortunately, we used Nacedo's special abilities to infiltrate the special unit of the FBI. Of course, we had skills of our own, And as much as we tried to convince ourselves that we could live a normal life...we couldn't. And to save our lives, Michael killed Agent Pierce of the FBI.
And no matter how justified it was-the truth is-we killed a man.
And that wasn't easy...for any of us."
Dr.-"Max, don't you have anything to say?"
Max-"It's like you said...just normal teenage stuff."
Max-"I'll decide when we call Nacedo. Don't do anything until I call you."
Michael-"I'm not gonna just sit around and do nothing like we've done all summer."
Max-"Michael! We've been having this conversation for months. What are we supposed to do?"
Michael-"You're our leader. Why don't you lead us?"
Max-"Fine - Crack some more rocks!"
Liz-"Hi - Max."
Max- "Hi. So..so, when did you get back?"
Liz-"A couple of days ago, actually."
Max-"Oh, that's....that's odd. Maria said you were still away."
Liz-"Yeah, I know she did. Um, you know,
I just wanted to get settled a little bit before........."
Max-"Yeah. Yeah. I understand. Listen, Liz. I..I know how strange everything got before you left, but I think it's okay. No aliens have attacked. Nacedo's putting an end to the Special Unit, as we speak. I think all of this could finally be over."
Liz-"Oh, I really hope that's true for all of you."
Max-"And..and I just want you to know about the whole Tess situation..."
Liz-"Oh Max. You don't have to....."
Max-"You know, just that it's definitely over. I don't have feelings for her. I told her that. She understands. I know it's probably irrelevant at this point....Just for the record."
Liz-"Right. You know, I just wanna get a fresh start. I've decided...."
Max-"Right! Right! Anyways, you look...."
Liz-"Oh, I have..um..a job interview actually."
Max-"Oh. What about the Crashdown?"
Liz-"Well, this really incredible opportunity came up, sort of out of the blue."
