I only watched Roswell because of Emilie, so there was no way I was going to hate Tess.

But even I was surprised how much I grew to like her, by the end of the first season, and how much I shipped Max and Tess in certain episodes. I liked the whole "past life spent together" aspect of their relationship very much.

Were you at first suspicious of her? Did you know a lot about her character before watching?

past life stuff in fiction and two people finding each other again and again over centuries is the ultimate romantic SL for me.

I started watching Roswell my freshman year of college in season 2 so I had no knowledge of season 1 except the voice over Max did in Skin and Bones and what my college friend who got me into Roswell was telling me.

I remember when Tess came on the scene she was like ew we don't like her. Her roomates and myself asked why she said becasue she tried to break Max and Liz up.

From the beginning I loved Tess's character. I then watched season 1 and I loved her even more. I loved her story and I loved how she was one of the group.

I was crushed when they made her evil. I was like what no. I was also so upset over Alex! Yes I am a Dreamer at heart but I always felt sorry for Tess and I loved the moments Max and her shared in the End Of the World with the bench scene of her reaching out to him to say I understand and him looking at her. I also love the end of Off The Menu when Max tell Tess he remembers her.

It is such a powerful moment because Tess wanted to belong for so long. I think we all can relate to her story in someway.

Those scenes still pull on my heart to this day. Beautiful shot and acted!

I remember the end of season 3 I was so sad with Tess's goodbye and how she saved the group yet again.

She was a true Queen till the end always saving her King and her fellow Pod Squad from the FBI.

YESSSSS! Exactly. God, I love that scene. And Emilie's face in it. I think there are really good gifsets of that moment somewhere.
She was only like 18 and already such an amazing actress!

Yes, I actually knew who she was, because of tumblr. I also knew that in the end she was going to accidentally kill Alex and betray the group somehow and then die.
At first I just thought it was entertaining as hell how she was trolling the group (cause she is such a little troll, seriously when she and Nasedo invite Liz for dinner, or when she confronts her in the bathroom at school with those huge eyes being all like "why is everyone following me?").

She became my "protect her till the end of all times, let me wrap her up in a blanket and give her hot cocoa" kind of character when she and Max were in the desert and we saw that flashback to the moment when Tess got left behind. And as we were shown that little person, being left by the others, not waking up in time like the others and I knew that at the end it's all going to end with her not finding her place, making some bad decisions and dying alone to save everyone... Knowing the end, seeing that flashback scene that showed us how it began was what made me her favorite.

It's so much easier watching a show when you already know a character's fate.
Like with TVD, I didn't watch it until it was in the middle of s2. So I knew Caroline was going to turn into a vampire and that made me love her from the beginning meanwhile I read so many people didn't originally like her.

when Tess took Max to the desert and he held her down...it's the toughest scene to watch. He was too violent with her there.
