It’s been a long wait since March 29th, 2014 when the final episode of Season 1 of “When Calls the Heart” aired on the Hallmark channel. For over a year, loyal fans of the TV series have been waiting (not so) patiently to find out what happened after that LONG awaited kiss between Elizabeth and Mountie Jack and what will become of Mr Avery’s investigation into what really happened in the mines of Coal Valley.
|In Case You Need A Reminder|
For those who might not be familiar with the series, here’s the basics: Based on the bestselling book of the same name by Janette, this story takes place in the Canadian West. “When Calls the Heart” tells the captivating story of Elizabeth Thatcher (played by Erin Krakow), a young teacher accustomed to her high society life, who receives her first classroom assignment in Coal Valley, a small coalmining town where life is simple, but often fraught with challenges. Lori Loughlin plays Abigail Stanton, a wife and mother whose husband, the foreman of the mine, along with a dozen other miners, including her son, were killed in an explosion. Elizabeth charms most everyone in Coal Valley, except Constable Jack Thornton (Daniel Lissing) who believes Thatcher’s wealthy father has doomed the lawman’s career by insisting he be assigned in town to protect the shipping magnate’s daughter. Living in a turn of the century coal town, Elizabeth will have to learn the ways of the frontier if she wishes to thrive in the rural west on her own.
My suggestion, binge watch the first season over the next two days before the season 2 premiere ;)
Thankfully, much to everyone’s excitement, Saturday is the long awaited two hour premiere of Season 2. It will air at 8/7c on the Hallmark channel and with it will come some pretty huge changes in Coal Valley. And TRUST ME, you’re going to want to watch because there will be plenty of discussions among the Hearties after it airs. (Be sure to follow on When Calls The Heart's official Twitter and Facebook with hashtags #FaithTV & #Hearties during the premiere and don't forget to join up with the Hearties Facebook as well ).
The season premiere sets the tone for two recurrent themes this season: Family and Hope.
|Jack and his younger brother Tom|
Change is also in the air for Coal Valley as a new judge arrives to replace tough as nails Judge Jedidiah Black who Mr Gowan knows couldn’t be bought. This new Judge is just a bit too friendly with Mr. Gowen and his defense team.
disappointment of many of the widows whom feel that a woman doesn’t have much chance in the courtroom. Lies are abound and a huge secret revealed during the trial will affect the memory of Abigail’s loved ones. How will that secret affect Abigail’s life in the future?
A tall, dark and handsome mysterious man on a motorcycle arrives in Coal Valley who just might be what the town needs to pull Rosemary’s attention away from Jack. Who is he, why is he there and is he up to no good?
Unfortunately, I can’t give more away then these teasers (no spoilers, sorry guys) but hopefully it is enough to get your mind wondering. To answer these questions and more, be sure to watch the season premiere when it airs on the Hallmark Channel on Saturday April 25th at 8/7c.
