Actress Jeanine Mason now plays a version of Appleby’s character with a different last name and altered story, but like Appleby’s character, she falls in love with Max Evans (now played by Nathan Dean Parsons). In “Songs About Texas,” Appleby directs the story in which Max and Michael (Michael Vlamis) journey to Texas, where they visit a faith healer who may have some valuable information regarding the alien symbol Max is researching.

Also, Maria (Heather Hemmens) and Liz visit the faith healer in hopes that they’ll find a cure for Maria’s sickly mother. And Alex (Tyler Blackburn) and Kyle (Michael Trevino) attempt to uncover a mystery of their own.
