11x08 - Truth Be Told

GEORGIE: Previously on "HEARTLAND" Przewalski horses.

Ancient Mongolian stock.

The whole point of breeding these horses is to airlift a stud back to Mongolia.

Attila's the first one to be shipped out.

Hey, Attila.

It smells like your family, doesn't it?

And I know you don't wanna leave them.

Come here.

Nice work.

I came to tell you that I think that Adam is a cool guy, but I wish I hadn't invited him on the road trip with us.

- Why?

- Because it meant there wasn't the right time to do this.

Tim's been talking about team roping, and I thought, maybe we could be partners.

- Maybe.

- Cool.













That was awful!

What the hell are you doing?!

Well, I got him by the horns Oh, good for you, Jade!

How's she supposed to get at his feet when you're yanking the steer left?

- Well, my horse, he - It's not the horse!

Don't blame the horse.

You've been doing this all day, you're actually getting worse.


Who's laughing?

What are smiling about?

None of you are doing any better.

What is your problem today?!

Do I have to show you how to do this myself?

I guess I do.

Jack, come on.



- You're flying, Lyndy!

- Look at you!


Whoa, I'm dizzy.

- See who wants to say hi?

- Yeah!

Is that Spartan?


That's Spartan, yeah, you wanna touch him?

Yeah, you can touch him, pet him nice, yeah!

He's soft!

Yeah, oh, you can pet with your feet too, - look at that!

- Oh!

I hate to say this, but I have to get back to work.

- Okay, okay.

- All right?

You okay to put Lyndy down for her nap?

Yeah, sounds good.


That's it, look for your corner.


Okay, good.

Now, circle him around.



That's it.


- Nice.

- Amy Fleming?

- I'm Paula.

- Hi.

Paula Westfield, Val's friend.


Yeah, you're bringing a horse by next week.

Actually, it has to be sooner.

Holloway is an absolute disaster.

- Holloway?

- My daughter's new jumper.

Well, at least that's what he's supposed to be.

Every time we try to saddle him, he starts jumping around like a lunatic.

It could be ulcers, or even back pain No, my vet already ruled those out.

We need to nip this in the bud like, now.

It's just I booked the week off to spend with my husband.


Well, I uh, I don't want to impinge on your family holiday, but I spent a small fortune on this horse.

He has incredible bloodlines.

If you can't make time for him, I guess I'll take him elsewhere.

Just (SIGHS)

We have a small baby, so it's not like I'm gonna be getting far anyway.

I could work with one horse.


Thank you.


Dylan, yeah, I need you to get Holloway over to Heartland ASAP.

No, whatever you're doing, this is more important.

Trust me.

On another matter, I'm having a little barbecue at my place this weekend.

I do it once a year for the equestrian community.

Val says you made quite a splash at the Sandstone Classic in Okotoks.

You should come by.

Uh, you too.

- Yeah, um - I mean, if Amy wants to Sure, great.

I'll add your names to the guest list.


- You ready?

- Yeah, yeah, I'm ready.

You ready?








What was that?


You didn't set him up properly, how was I supposed to get to his feet?

I put that steer right where you needed him to be.

You flat out missed!

Okay, that's it for today, everybody go home.



Who do you think that was on the phone?

Did you hear the way she was talking to him?

Probably some poor stable hand.


She is something else, and I can't believe we agreed to go - to her little barbecue.

- Oh, trust me, there is nothing little about it.

She puts it on every year, it's this big, lavish, over the top party.

Hey, who're you talking about?

Oh, a friend of Val's from the English community.

She's a little bit of a diva.

Well, she is a friend of Val's.


And adamant that I work with her horse immediately.

Ty, I am so sorry, I know It's okay, Amy, it's all right, - these things come up, you know?

- Yeah - (LYNDY CRIES)

- I'll go I'll get her.

I wanna spend some time with her.


And if that horse comes, just throw him in one of the back pens.





Is everything all right?

Yeah, it's just my friend Wyatt.

We were supposed to go for lunch, and now he says he only has half an hour.


You've been spending a lot of time with Wyatt?

No, not lately, not since Since what?

It-it's nothing.

It's just, boys are dumb!



Hi, my name's Dylan.

You got a name to go with those big brown eyes?

It's Georgie.

It's nice to meet you.

So what do you want me to do with this guy?

The back pens.

They're this way.







- You okay?


I'm good.

Crazy, isn't he?


S11E08 Truth Be Told And at the break of day you sank into your dream You dreamer Oh oh oh oh You dreamer You dreamer Was that normal for Tim?

I mean, he can be pretty demanding, but he doesn't usually lose it on us like that.

But he was right, I sucked.

That's not true.

Well, not completely.

- Tell me straight.

- You could use a little work.

Okay, a lot of work.

I don't know what to do, I can't just ask Tim for any extra one on one, not the way he's acting.

I could give you a few pointers.

I mean, if you want me to.

- Really?

You wouldn't mind?

- Not at all.

I can meet up this afternoon, or something?

Okay, I guess it couldn't hurt.

- Cool.

- All right, see ya later.


- Hey.

- Hey, bud.

Check this out.

Look at this.

Everyone loves these photos I posted from the gopher museum.

- Yeah, it was a great day.

- Yeah, I know, right?

The pool hall diorama was classic.

The hair salon, the bank heist.

The barbecue was cool, too.

Yeah, Jack really knows how to grill a steak, huh?

I wasn't talking about the steaks.


What's up bronc buster, what'cha doing?

Uh, not much, I was just gonna grab a bite.

Great, you should sit with us.

Uh, I don't wanna third wheel, or anything.

No, no, that's fine, we have to show you our Torrington photos.


Okay, wait.

Wait - Look at that.

- Oh my God, that's insane!


Check out the next one.

Come on Holloway, come on.


Come on.


Go over the jump, you can do it!

Let's go, let's go!

You've been at this for a while.

Yeah Paula said that he freaks out as soon as a rider gets on him, so I thought I would see how he does on the ground first.


Apparently not much better.

I think I need to get on and ride him.

Are you sure he's ready for that?

I'll know better when I get a saddle on him.

- I got it.

- Thanks.

Well I better run, I've gotta get back to the rodeo grounds.

What, uh, is that the time?

Wow, I-I uh, should head out also, - so I will see you guys later.

- Oh!

Well, do you wanna do something tomorrow?

Like go on a trail ride, or something?

Yeah sure, I'll text Adam and Olivia, - see if they're up for it.

- I mean, I thought - I meant just the two of us.

- Yeah, okay.

That sounds good.





That was extremely awkward.

- Yeah!

- What's going on?

I wish I knew.

Well, did something happen?

Okay, it's not a big deal, but we kissed.

Like, a peck?

- Okay, well, that's huge.

- I know!

And then why has he been avoiding me ever since?

And whenever we're together, he just acts like we're all buddy buddy, and it never happened.

Yeah, that's weird.

I don't know, I think you just have to talk to him.

Did that guy just Was that (DOOR OPENS)


Georgie, right?

Uh, I'm Dylan.

Sorry, this is, this is my friend Jade.

It's nice to meet you.

- Decent coffee here?


What was that?

Weren't we talking about Wyatt?

Wyatt who?


Okay um, I really have to go.

But we'll talk about Wyatt and that guy later.








Ty, be careful!


Whoa, whoa, whoa.


Easy - (SNORTS)

- Whoa Jeez.

You sure it's not ulcers?

Yeah, Paula said she had her vet check him out.

Well, you're not gettin' on him, not like this.

You're right.

You're usually a lot tougher to convince.

Well, I don't think I'm gonna try and jump him.

You mean like now, or ever?

I'm not sure, but from what I've seen, I don't think it's a good idea.

So you really think you can't work with this horse, hey?

I didn't say that.

I wanna keep working with him, but I'm gonna try something different.


Easy you're all right.

Hey, Dad.

Wait, shouldn't I be practicing roping the horns?

Nah, you have that down.

Problem is, you're turning too quickly.

Yeah, but it's a timed event.

Yeah, but if you rush, your horse'll deke left.

Then the steer's out of position for the heeler.

You try too hard to be fast, and you'll end up losing time.

So don't think quick, think smooth.

Okay So I'll release the steer, and instead of going left just follow him in a straight line, and I'll rope his feet.

- That's it?


For now.

You need to practice patience.











We did it!

- Like that?

- Exactly, let's go again.


That's it, good job, Holloway.



Okay, moment of truth.

- Hey, dad.

- Hey.

Thanks for coming, and checking him out.

Yeah well, I was coming anyway for dinner, so.

And I want to see the baby.

So let's get it over with.

See what he's got.



That's it!


Good job!

Look at him go!



Whoa there.


So, what do you think?


He's got a real upside.

Nice bronc.

Yeah, except he's not.

He's a jumper.

- That's not a jumper, Amy.

- I know.

This is what he was born to do, he absolutely loves it.

But that's the last thing his owner wants to hear.


- I-I'll get her.

- Yeah?

- Yeah, yeah, yeah.

You uh, you go be with your "jumper".

Thanks, dad.



You did so good.

We're gonna play helicopter, 'cause I know you like helicopters.


Okay Okay, okay.




Are you okay?




We were playing helicopter.

I think it's-I think it's time somebody needs a change, so.


Thanks, dad.

Hey you're okay.

Are you tired?



We had to scale a steep ridge to get to him.

It was amazing how fast the wolf could travel with a bullet in his hip.

Well, did you get it out in time?

Yeah, it was touch and go for a bit, but we did it.

Sorry, I'm late, long practice session.


What does that mean?

- Me and Avery.

- Just the two of you?

Yeah, we started with this one drill where I tied my rope around the steer's horns, and then What?!

We tied the rope around the steer's horns.

You can't do that, Jade!

You don't put a rope around the steer's horns unless you hit your target, there's no short cuts!

It wasn't a short cut, it was a training exercise.

It was stupid, you probably set yourself back further.

Why wouldn't you ask me?

I'm your coach.

I don't get it.

Today you were all over us for not putting in enough effort, and now you're ticked off because we had an extra practice session?

I can't win with you!

She's got a point, Tim, you were pretty tough on those guys today.

You have to remember these kids are still learning, honey.

Yeah, you need to chill out!

You know what, I'm sick of this!

I'm sick of it!

All of you think you know how to run my rodeo school better than I do!

You do, you, you!

Even Caleb, who's at some two-bit rodeo, trying to last three seconds.

You all think you can do it better, right, huh?

- Who needs me?!

- Jack: Come on No, what do you need me for?

Tim Okay.

Well, thanks for letting me know.

Please, call whenever you need to.

Okay, bye.

What was that about?


He's having some respiratory problems.

It can happen after long flights.

Is he gonna be okay?

I don't know, I mean, they're pretty worried about him.

They offered to fly me out there.

Are you serious?

That's a pretty expensive vet call.

That's what I said.

I'm pretty sure I can help them from here, so I just hate to think of Attila suffering in any way, he's been through so much.


I know.


Hey Jack, are you here?

JACK: Come on in.

- Well, hello.

- Hi.

Look, we need to talk to you.

About Tim.

Yeah, he's been a nightmare lately.

Let me pour you a coffee.

I first noticed that something was up when we were on the road.

Yeah well, he never did love long drives.

No, I know.

Just trust me.

But this is different.

He was just he was snapping at me for no reason.

I mean, I was on eggshells the whole time.

And you've seen him at the school, he's been the exact same way.

And what was that last night over nothing.

I mean, I have never seen him like this before.

Neither have I.

And I know Tim can be difficult sometimes, but the way he's been acting is just I don't know, it just it feels mean.

I don't know, I ask him what's going on, and he just gets defensive.


Do you have any idea where this is coming from?


He does seem a little off.

Now, I've seen well, I just hope some old habits aren't coming back.

Well, would you mind having a talk with him?

He might open up to you.

GEORGIE: You won't believe this party I got invited to.


What kind of party is it?

It's a barbecue with all the top jumpers.

Oh wow, that's awesome, congrats.


It's not.

It's being thrown by this Richy rich lady in her fancy mansion.

It's gonna be all champagne fountains, and barbecued caviar.

I don't think you barbecue caviar.


It's gonna be super pretentious, okay?

And super funny!

I'm glad you think so, 'cause I want you to go with me.

Yeah sure, that sounds hilarious.


Um, then it's a date.

Uh, yeah.

Yes, sure.

Okay, okay, I wanna test out my new riding skills.

I'll race you, I'll race you across this field.

Actually, I was kinda hoping we could, you know, talk about what's happening with us.

You're scared.


You're scared I'm going to beat you.

Well, you should be, because I am.




I was excited to get your call.

I wanna show you what Holloway can do.

That sounds promising.

But why isn't he in the jumping ring?

Well, I don't really know how to say this, so I'm just gonna come out with it.

I I don't think that Holloway's a jumper.

At least not at the level you're hoping for.

What are you talking about?

That's what he was bred to do.

I know.

But sometimes no matter what a horse is bred to do, they have a mind of their own.

And what exactly does Holloway think he is?


- A bronc.


A rodeo animal?

I-I just need you to check this out.

Uh, no!

I don't need to see anything.

Get him out of this pen this instant!

You know, I can only imagine the damage you've already caused!



TIM: If anything happens to my suspension, you'll be paying for it, old man.

You better not have brought me all the way out here - to help you grease a haybine!

- No, I didn't.


So what, you just wanna drone on about dinner last night?

No well yeah, actually.

That's part of it.

You've been awful edgy lately, and everyone's noticed.

Oh, so you're all talking behind my back?

Well, I did have a chat with Jade and Casey this morning, yeah.

There you go, riling everybody up!

They came to me!

And you just jumped in and piled on.


They've never seen you like this before, but I have!

Oh, you're accusing me of something.

The moods, your temper, the sunglasses, I'm just saying, where there's smoke, there's fire.

I haven't had a drink for five years!

Or so much as a baby Aspirin.

Believe me, dealing with your BS every day, it hasn't made it easy.

I'm a clean machine, Jack.

So forget your intervention, or any other crap you have planned.




I still can't believe that woman.

She totally just blew off my advice.

Well, that's her loss.

No, Holloway's the one that loses in all this.

Paula's gonna keep forcing him to be something he's not, and then when she finally realizes he's not a jumper, then what?

Well, maybe you should go back to her.

Try speaking her language.

What do you mean?

Lay out how much she could make with him as a bronc.

A horse that expensive has gotta pay for himself somehow.

That's actually a pretty good idea.

Maybe I'll go to that barbeque after all.

I got an update about Attila.

He's getting worse, and they want you to go?


And they offered to pay for you to join me.

Are you serious?

For how long?

About a week.

Mongolia (SIGHS)

- Why not?

- Really?



We would have to talk to Grandpa and Lisa, and see if they could look after Lyndy, it would be hard to leave her for a week, but spending some time with them would be good for her.


You're right.

I think Lyndy will be fine.

Are you sure, though?

Ty, when there's an opportunity like this that's paid for, we should take it.

We would never go on an adventure like this on our own.

Plus I get to see the famous Dr.

Borden in action.



We're going to Mongolia, then.

Yeah Together.





I just wanna say I'm sorry, all right?

I shouldn'tve jumped to conclusions.

I believe you a 100%.

But if it ain't booze, or pills just-I wanna know what's goin' on, maybe I can help.

I don't need your help.

Well, you can't keep whatever this is all bottled up inside.

What are you, a therapist now?



Don't, don't.

I'm fine.

I don't know what just happened there, but you need to get checked out.


I did already.

You expect me to believe that?

Ask Virani.

I'm going back to see her this afternoon.

What exactly are you seeing her about?

I've just-it's nothing, I'm having headaches, I'm dizzy, the light is really bugging my eyes, my hands are numb all the time.

Well, that doesn't sound like nothing to me.

What does she say about it?

She made me get an MRI.

I'm pretty sure it's just all the concussions I took in the rodeo.

Are you getting results today?

I don't know.


We'll see.


You please.

You can't mention this to anybody, okay?

Not a word.

Especially not Casey.

All right.



No, I-I understand.



Thank you.



What's wrong?

Lisa can't do it?

No, it's not that, it's my passport.

- It's expired.

- Oh!


I haven't used it in so long, I forgot to check.

They're getting me an emergency renewal, but it's gonna take a few days.

Okay, we'll just leave as soon as you get it.

No, Ty, Attila needs you now.

I'll join you, but you need to go.

Are you sure?

I need the time to get Lyndy ready anyway.

It'll all work out.

Well, I-I kinda wanted us to fly together, you know?

Ty, we're still doing this.

It's gonna be amazing.

- Right?

- Right.





- Oof!










- Hi, Katie.

- Hey, Amy.

Georgie, you ready?

Is this okay?

You look amazing.



- You look so pretty!

- Thank you.



Is everything okay?

Yeah, it's just I'm kinda mad at Wyatt.

I thought he'd come pick me up like a real date, but instead we're meeting him there.

He's just been so cold lately.

I have a feeling that dress might warm him up.





- Wow.

- Yeah.

This is so over the top.

They might as well be using $100 bills for napkins.

Ahem That's a that's a great dress.


PAULA: Well hello, this is a nice surprise.


Um, this is - this is Wyatt.

- Hi, nice to meet you.

You have to meet my daughter.

Ah, Peyton?

Come here, please.

This is Amy Fleming.

- Hi.

- Oh, hi.

And Georgie.

She's riding Val Stanton's horse, Flame.

Why don't you introduce her around to the other girls?


Come on.


Don't worry about me, just-okay, I'll mingle.

Paula, thank you for inviting me.

I really wanted the chance to talk to you about Holloway.

Oh, I'm sorry.

Will you excuse me?


GIRL: Did you see her hair was like a hack job, it was like a dog chewed it off.

Lainy, meet Georgie.

Oh, you were in Okotoks, weren't you?


Yeah, it was a nice show.


It was so budget.

I didn't even bother going this year.

I was at a show in the south of France.

See, that must've been nice.

The Belgium circuits are way better.

And the stables?

To die for!

So how do you two know each other?

Oh, we just met.

Her trainer is the one who's been working with my horse.

Oh, you mean the one who thought he should be a rodeo bronc?


- Come on, be nice.

I always fancied Holloway as more of the chuck wagon type.


Um, it was nice to meet you guys.

I should find my friend, though.

- Where did she come from?

- My mom - I'll see you.

- See you.

Hey you, having fun?

Uh I mean, yeah, but it-it's pretty lame.

I know, right?

Come on, have a seat.

We can hide out here for a while.

So not your scene, huh?

Nah, not really.

I just met Paula's prissy little daughter Peyton, and her friends.

Yeah, Peyton can be a handful.

Always some kind of drama with her.

Wears me out.

Are you and Peyton friends, or something?


no, she's my cousin.


Oh, so that- that means Paula's your Yep.

She's my dear auntie.

I moved out here a year ago to live with them.

Needed a change of scenery.

Oh, I always just-I thought I was just some stable hand?

- No, I just - (LAUGHS)

It's okay.

I'll take that as a compliment.

It means I don't have that patented Westfield stick-up-the-butt aura.



Here you are.

Wyatt, I've been looking everywhere for you.

Yeah, yeah, it looks like it.

I have to go.


Wyatt, where are you going?!

- What was that?

- Nothing.

- Really?

- That's Paula's nephew, he's been to the ranch a couple times.

Well, I see that you guys have become friendly.

Why do you even care?!

You've been avoiding me ever since we kissed!

Yeah, we kissed!

You kissed me, and ever since, you've been pretending like it never even happened!


No, that's not (SIGHS)

I'm sorry.

I know that I've been acting a little weird lately.


What's going on?

The truth is, is that I want you to be my girlfriend.

Then why Because it's complicated, okay?

There's this girl back in Calgary, and she sort of thinks that she's my girlfriend.

- Why would she think that?

- Because she was.

And-and technically she still is, because I haven't exactly broken up with her yet.


I just don't know how to do it, okay?

It's-I'm terrible with that kind of thing.

- I feel totally played by you!

- No Georgie, it's not like that, okay?

Listen No, stop!


Just go!

That kiss meant something to me too, you know!


- Hey.

- Hey.

You didn't return my call last night.

Long day, I just hit the sack early.


Uh, excuse me.


Jack, hey, uh, I'll take the horse, can you get this stuff?

- Casey.

- So did you talk to him?

- Yeah, I did.

- And?

Well, he says he's not drinking, and I believe him.

Well, that's a relief.

So what's this all about, then?

It's been busy lately, you know how he gets.

He'll come around.

Well, I hope you're right.

For his sake, and everyone else's.


Okay, let's get it right this time, Jade.

Just keep it fluid.

You got it?







TIM: Made it!

Avery, good job!


That's it!


That's better.

So much better.

Okay, you've still got a little room for improvement, but you've got a bright future.

Okay, everybody, great start.

Let's stay in the groove.

Thank you.

Can we go?

I've been ready to go since we got here, but I still haven't had a chance to talk to Paula yet.

- Let me try one more time.

- Okay, I'll be in the truck.

PAULA: So I was so thrilled that you could make it again this year.

Did you happen to see where we expanded the property?


Sorry, can I talk to you for a moment?

Excuse me just one moment.

Thank you.

I want to apologize.

I should've never sprung the idea of Holloway being a bronc on you.

I'm glad you realize what a ridiculous notion that was.

No, I still stand by it.

He's definitely more of a bucking horse than a jumper.

- Okay - Please, please.

Just hear me out.

I know that this isn't what you wanna hear, I'm sure you have high hopes for Holloway, but do you know how much money he could make as a bronc?

What are you talking about?

Well, into the six figures, and that's at every rodeo season.

You don't expect me to ferry him around that circuit, - do you?

- No, I have connections.

And if you wanted, you could sell him to a stock contractor for a pretty good profit.

I should get back to my guests.

Let me think about this, okay?



I'll be back before you know it, okay, sweetheart?

Hey, come here.

You come here.

I'm going to miss you like I always do.


It's okay.

It's okay.

But I've got a trick this time, Lyndy.

Every morning I'm gonna watch the sun rising, and I'm gonna imagine it setting here at Heartland.

And I'm gonna picture you all cuddled up with your lambie, drifting off to sleep.

And when that same sun goes down at night, (LYNDY COOS)


I'll picture your smiling face, waking up to start the new day.


I love you, sweetheart.





You missed your appointment.

Oh, I'm sorry about that, the day got away from me.

I've been trying to call you!

Well, like I said.

I was busy.

This is too important to avoid, Tim!

Well, I already know what you're gonna say, Trish.

I did some reading about post concussion syndrome.

I get it, there's not much you can do about it.

I'm just gonna have to live with the symptoms.

That's just the way it is.

Something showed up on your MRI.

There seems to be a shadow.

A sh-a shadow?

What does that mean?

It means it's a tumour.

- A tumour?

- Mhmm.

I have cancer?

- I didn't say it was cancer.

- You said tumour.

And it could be completely benign.

Maybe it's something that's been there for a long time, but has absolutely nothing to do with your symptoms.

What if it's not benign?

How do you know?

- I want to do another MRI.

- Oh But that usually isn't conclusive on its own.

Okay so, then what?

We'd need to go in and remove it.

I have to warn you, there are some pretty big risks.

That kind of surgery can cause other issues, it can affect your sight, your smell, taste, it can cause neural damage, partial paralysis Okay, I get it!

But if it's cancer, Tim, it needs to come out as soon as possible.

Look, I can line up a counsellor for you to talk to.

Help you make the decision about the surgery, if it even comes to that.

No, I don't need a counsellor, Trish.

I'm not gonna risk my entire way of life on the chance that I might have cancer, and I'm not gonna let anybody operate on my brain.

Nope, no way.

Okay, let's just take it one step at a time, then.

I trust that you're not gonna mention this.

Not to Jade, not to Casey.

- Of course.

- Please.


- Trish?

- Yeah?

Can I still drive?

We don't know what this is, Tim.

Use common sense, and just be careful.






Hey, we've gotta talk.

No, we don't.


That was Paula.

She agreed, she's gonna have Holloway trained as a saddle bronc.

Nice job, I knew you could do it.

And you mister, are gonna be late!

You have a plane to catch.

I know, I know.

I just want to spend every last moment I can - with my little girl.

- What about this girl?

I'll see you in a couple of days.

I can't believe it, I am so excited, this is gonna be an amazing adventure.

JACK: You ready to go?



- Come on!

- Okay.

- Yes.

- Bye, Lyndy.

Bye bye, daddy.

All right.


- Bye!

- Okay - I'll see you in Mongolia.

- Okay.



Say, bye, daddy!

Oh the honey in your eyes The honey in your heart The howlin' winds of trouble in our mind Like the saddest waltz Over ocean for the breeze Forests for the pine River for the winding Oh oh oh And the sunshine bleeds Into the night And if you're looking with your light And the caffeine buzz In white moonlight There's a hazy sunshine sky Today
