One would think that one has to watch out for the boys in high school, but when confronted with the likes of an alien teen girl, most human teen boys are simply out of their league. In the new CW series STAR-CROSSED, Chelsea Gilligan portrays Teri, an Atrian teen who has more than a few tricks up her sleeve. Not helping matters is the fact that Teri believes in every fiber of her being that her destined love is Roman (Matt Lanter), an Atrian boy destined to rule their people one day. Teri’s life would be perfect if the Atrians had never crash landed on Earth ten years ago; but they did, and they have been virtual prisoners on Earth ever since. However, with new government mandate ordering seven Atrians to participate in a pilot integration program, Teri’s chance to finally stretch her wings and exercise her power has come. Attending a human high school may be the last thing she wants to do, but it affords plenty of opportunities to get outside their internment camp and discover what the world has to offer. It may provide the long-awaited opportunity to prove to Roman of their destined love.
One would hope that over the course of the first season of STAR-CROSSED that Teri would learn a few strong lessons about working with the humans and not against them, but she has a long road ahead of her to see the error of her ways. She will be the one girl that everyone may love to hate. But all hope is not lost, there may be a road to redemption in her future, if she chooses it. Will her love for Roman be the key to reaching her, or the one thing that triggers a rage that no one will be able to stop?
To see which path Teri ultimately chooses, be sure to tune in for all new episodes of STAR-CROSSED on Monday nights, starting February 17th, at 8:00 p.m. on the CW. Will anyone be able to stop Teri from messing with everyone’s minds?
