Spoiler Alert - Do Not Read If You Prefer to be Surprised
In Heart and Home, Elizabeth (Erin Krakow) and Jack (Daniel Lissing) are at a
crossroads in their relationship when they each get troubling news: Tom (Max Lloyd-Jones) and
Julie (Charlotte Hegele) have been in an automobile accident. As they prepare to travel to
Hamilton together, Abigail (Lori Loughlin) is avoiding Bill Avery (Jack Wagner) at all costs. But
when Bill shows up at the café and makes his final plea to be honest with her about his
unforgivable mistake, an angry Abigail agrees to listen at the urging of friendly Pastor Frank
(Mark Humphrey), and makes a surprising decision. Meanwhile, Lee (Kavan Smith) confides in
Rosemary (Pascale Hutton) about Gowen’s (Martin Cummins) latest scheme to run the sawmill
out of business with his new railroad deal, and they both worry about the future of Hope Valley.
Then, when a visiting railroad tycoon takes Gowen on in a heated poker game, Lee sees one
last opportunity to outsmart Gowen, and conspires with Rosemary to beat him at his own game.
In Hamilton, tensions are high as Jack visits a hurt Tom in the infirmary and immediately
connects with his pretty nurse, Faith (Andrea Brooks). With her help, Jack discovers Tom and
Julie are hiding the truth about the crash. As Julie’s furious father threatens to press charges
against Tom for his reckless behavior – and prevent the Thornton men from coming near his
daughters at all – Jack and Elizabeth must defend their own relationship. But when the fallout
from the accident inevitably pulls them apart in a heated confrontation, they are left to wonder
if their future is worth fighting for.
