From celebrated author Janette Oke (The Love Comes Softly series) comes a rigorous and romantic adventure as epic as the wide frontier. Erin Krakow (Army Wives), Daniel Lissing (Eye Candy), Jack Wagner (Melrose Place) and Lori Loughlin (Full House, 90210) star in When Calls The Heart, “a beautiful story with roots in relationships, self-empowerment, and the enduring power of love”  Season two of the When Calls the Heart television series debuted on the Hallmark Channel to more than 2 million viewers.

Synopsis:

Jack and Elizabeth leave Hope Valley and rush back to the city of Hamilton when they learn that Jack’s brother, Tom, was involved in an automobile accident… with Elizabeth’s sister, Julie! But Tom and Julie are hiding something about the incident, a deceit that puts Jack and Elizabeth at odds with their families… and with each other. Their trip is further complicated when Tom and Julie endeavour to run off together – via train this time – and Elizabeth’s father offers Jack a job – an offer that puts Jack and Elizabeth’s fledgling romance in peril yet again.

Review:


This third episode really moves the season and sets the rest of the season up, at the same time. It is a pivotal episode as Elizabeth is being torn between her family and Jack, as he is torn between proving his brother innocent in the car accident, and to no betray Elizabeth's family/ Meanwhile other relationships get more entangled, as more history comes out, and challenges are made and accepted. Will the town stay the same, will the Thornton men get their Thatcher women, or will fate (and and family) intercede? This episode will leave you wondering and waiting for the next! Be sure to pick up the collection of Series 2 DVDs for your favorite Heartie for Christmas, they'll love you for it!
