In Zap2it‘s first look at a pivotal scene from the episode, we meet Roman (Lanter) as we will see him frequently throughout the series: saving the day. It’s the first day of school for Roman, his sister, Sophia (Brina Palencia), and the five other alien teenagers integrating into the local Louisiana high school in the year 2024.
But not everyone is happy for the Atrians’ arrival — Eric (Jesse Luken) is particularly unhappy about all the progress being made and picks Sophia to harass in the hallway. Don’t worry, Roman comes to her rescue — right before Eric sucker-punches him in the face.
It’s the “Star-Crossed” equivalent of “Welcome to the O.C., b***,” but with much higher stakes. Check out the clip below, then tune in to the “Star-Crossed” premiere on Monday (Feb. 17) at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
