“Star-Crossed” Season 1, Episode 4: “And Left No Friendly Drop” airs Monday on TheCW.
In this episode, Roman is furious when the sector guards ransack his family’s pod looking for restricted technology. However, he is taken aback when his mother shows him a secret cellphone she found hidden in his late father’s things. Roman takes the phone to school in hopes of retrieving the data and finding out what his father was hiding. Turning to a friend he trusts, Roman asks Julia for help and she introduces him to Lukas, a tech genius. Emery notices Roman’s newfound closeness to Julia, but since Julia had promised to keep Roman’s secret, she deflects Emery’s questions, causing tensions between the friends. Grayson asks Emery to forgive him for the incident at the sector, but she’s not sure she can trust him. Meanwhile, with Emery’s encouragement, and under Teri’s watchful eye, Sophia decides to join the swim team and blows everyone away with her speed. Unfortunately, not everyone is thrilled to have her on the team and when she is poisoned by rivals, an all-out brawl ensues. The Trags give Drake a mission.
TheCW describes the show as follows:
“When Emery was 6 years old, an alien spacecraft crash-landed in her small town. Whether they came in peace or with more sinister intentions didn’t matter: a fierce battle erupted as humans fought for control over their new rivals, an alien species called the Atrians. While the world around them rages with anger and prejudice, their bond becomes increasingly strong and increasingly dangerous. As an epic Romeo and Juliet romance unfolds, a violent encounter between Roman’s father and Emery’s father occurs in the Sector. Can Roman and Emery’s love – and peace between the species – survive?”
“Star-Crossed” season 1, episode 2 airs Mondayat 8 p.m. EST on TheCW.
