SWIM MEET – Roman (Matt Lanter) is furious when the sector guards ransack his family’s pod looking for restricted technology. However, he is taken aback when his mother (guest star Susan Walters) shows him a secret cell phone 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 (Malese Jow) for help and she introduces him to Lukas (Titus Makin, Jr.), a tech genius. Emery (Aimee Teegarden) 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 (Grey Damon) 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 (Chelsea Gilligan) watchful eye, Sophia (guest star Brina Palencia) decides to join the swim team and blows everyone away with her speed. Unfortunately, not everyone is thrilled to have Brina on the team and when she is poisoned by rivals, an all-out brawl ensues. The Trags give Drake (Greg Finley) a mission. Harry Sinclair directed the episode written by Robert Hewitt Wolfe (#104).

However, the fun ends after Drake is kidnapped and Roman finds out the Trags are preparing a hit on Emery and her family at the carnival.
ARRIVAL DAY – It’s the tenth anniversary of “Arrival Day” and the town is preparing a commemoration for the fallen soldiers. Gloria (guest star Victoria Platt) selects a small group of human teenagers who will spend some time inside the sector to see what it’s like to be an Atrian for a day. In addition, Gloria assigns Emery (Aimee Teegarden) the task of filming the interactions.

Jacobsen will be playing Eva, a charismatic biology teacher at Marshall High School, who has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to the Atrians (aliens) and is sympathetic to their cause. She quickly becomes a favorite among human and Atrian students alike
Tahmoh Penikett will play the mysterious SEU (Sector Enforcement Unit) Officer Jack Beaumont, who is responsible for the supervision within the Atrian (aka alien) sector walls. First appearing in episode two, Penikett is set to recur.
The actor, who is currently appearing on Showtime’s Ray Donovan, is set to recur as Castor, uncle to Matt Lanter’s teenage alien Roman on the CW’s upcoming midseason drama about two teens (Lanter and Aimee Teegarden) who struggle to maintain a romance in a time in which Atrians (the aliens) and humans struggle to integrate.
Castor is said to have a dark and shady past as a radical militant Atrian, but he claims to have changed his ways to be more temperate and pro-integration. But Roman still has his doubts — even after Castor proves himself to be an effective politician within the Sector.
Episode 1×02 of Star-Crossed will be called “These Violent Delights Have Violent Ends”
