Previously on When Calls the Heart...

HENRY: How much did he pay you

in exchange for the lives
that will be lost here?!


So, how are you feeling?

I no longer feel nauseous.

That might mean you're progressing.

Or that I was never pregnant.

BILL: It wasn't always like this.

Nora took such good care
of me when I was sick.

ROSEMARY: It makes sense
Lucas is feeling this way.

He just sold his oil company
and now he's questioning

what he'll do next.

I may be leaving town.

- Lucas?
- LUCAS: Maybe I simply hadn't considered

all of my possibilities.

ROSEMARY: This is such a mess.

How does he get anything done?

♪ You feel blue, ♪

♪ You feel sad, ♪

♪ You miss the bestest
pal you ever... had. ♪

Ooh, hot, hot, hot, hot, hot.

Hot. Hot, hot, hot, hot, hot.


Coffee that I just
spilled all over my hand.

What? I remembered the cream.

You met with Arthur Gilchrist?

I should get some ice for my hands.

If the Hearst newspaper chain

is interested in our little newspaper

don't you think that's
something I should know?


- And have been included in the meeting?
- Mmm-hmm.

I would have never excluded you.

- Listen, but the thing...
- Lee, please. Okay.

But what?

I tried to tell you about it
the other night at the saloon

but we got side-tracked.

The truth is...

Gilchrist didn't wanna meet with you.

He was only interested in me.

And since that was the case

I just forgot about
the offer altogether.


I apologize.


Well, I still hear some wheezing.

It may have gotten a
little better, but...

I just can't seem to catch my breath.

And I don't want a second opinion.

You're my doctor.

Just... just tell me
what you want me to do.

The first thing that I
am prescribing, again,

is that you slow down.

You work too hard and you work too late.

Yeah, I...

I am also ordering
you a steam nebulizer.

You'll inhale vapor through
a mouth piece that...

A what?

Why am I even bothering?

You probably won't even use it, right?

- No.
- Well, I'm ordering it anyway.

And Bill? Go home and rest.

Anything you say.

Thank you.



My apologies for the late hour.

Please don't be concerned. Come in.

I did not want to call but then
I saw your light as I passed by.

Gustave, this isn't exactly on the way.

Is there something wrong?

If Lucas has gone off to gather
his thoughts as you have said,

how long do you suppose he'll be?

A few days, maybe? I don't know.

But if you're worried, and
I don't think you need to be,

I can ask Nathan to ride up to
the ridge and try finding him.

- The Mountie?
- Mmm-hmm.

He would do that?

Nathan is a very good man.

I'd feel much better.


Uh, one more thing.

The letter Lucas left you.

- Do you mind if I...
- Oh, I haven't even opened it.

You have not read his letter?

No. But I know what it says.

You really are meant for one another.




- Lee?
- Mmm.



Oh, good morning, darling.
Ooh, what a restful night.

Did you have a good sleep?

- I was until a second ago.
- Oh?

I wonder what happened.

- Oh.
- Mmm-hmm.

What was your meeting
with Gilchrist about?

There's really not much to say.

He uh, he said that there
was some mild interest

in Ned's word puzzle, the
interconnected word puzzle.

And uh, and Molly's column,

but mostly he just wanted to know if uh,

I would consider
- or if we would consider moving.

- Away from Hope Valley?
- Mmm-hmm. Yeah.

And go where?

Uh, he said um, New York,
Chicago and Los Angeles.

That doesn't appeal to you?

But this is our home. We love it here.

Don't we?

Yes, of course. Of course we do.

I... well... it's just
always nice to be wanted.


Well, that's exactly how I
feel when it comes to you.


Now if I could just
get five more minutes.

Thank you.


Well, you're not coming with me.

I wasn't planning on it.

I just wanted to know what you meant

before we hung up the telephone.

- About Lucas getting cold feet?
- Mmm-hmm.

Well, you don't think that's why

he suddenly ran for the hills, do you?

No, Nathan, I don't.

And frankly that isn't even possible

because Lucas hasn't proposed.




I'm teasing you.

I mean, wasn't it this time
last year that Lucas left town

and you went running after him?

And now I'm doing the same thing.

I just...

I think that's funny.

Well, I don't think you
are running after him

because he isn't going anywhere.

There's nothing to worry about.

I told you, it's Gustave who's worried.



You know, you can be extremely
exasperating sometimes.


Thank you for being there for me.


Mike, if you're determined
to step down as mayor

then we need to talk about
those oil shares you loaned me.

I would like to play a
part in the company again.

I was good at it. And I liked it.

Welcome back, Mike.

Our first order of business

is how to stop you from being replaced.

Listen, I'm not about to just
roll over for Jerome Smith.

He has no idea the kind
of fight he's in for.

Oh, Lee?


Just stopping by to remind you
that I'm taking the day off.

Right, yes, of course.

Uh, where are you taking Minnie again?

Heath's Pond.


Have a little picnic, try to relax.

- Thanks for lending me your car.
- Any time.

You'll let yourself in
if you need to look around

or take measurements.

Yes, and you and Joseph have fun.

Not sure about that, but
we're certainly gonna try.


You're not blaming yourself
for Lucas riding off, are you?

Not at all.

But Gustave was concerned

so I asked Nathan to try finding Lucas.


What? Where are we...

We're going to talk to Faith

so you can have some peace
about this once and for all.

Faith? Hello?

Oh, I thought I just saw her.

"The Prospective Mother."


"A handbook for women during pregnancy."

That's a title that
just about sums it up.


Rosemary, I still think you
should just talk to Faith

- rather than reading...
- "This book, written for women

who have no special
knowledge of medicine,

aims to answer the
questions which occur to them

in the course of pregnancy."

Oh good, I hear Faith coming now.

Oh, no, not good! Not good!

What? What're you doing?

FAITH: I want to mix a new
compound for Nathan's headaches

and I also wanna check on Bill.

Well, we only have
two appointments today.

Mr. Robichaud continues to complain...


FAITH: Poor man.


And Mrs. Pechlaner is concerned...


Hmm. All right.

Well, uh, I am going to make
my way over to the pharmacy.

MOLLY: Would it be all
right if I step out, too?

I'd like to run over to the café.

Yes, of course.

Why didn't you wanna talk to Faith?

I haven't been completely
honest with you.

I haven't been going about my days

believing that everything will be
fine whether I'm pregnant or not.

And if I speak to Faith then...

Rosemary, I understand.

Well, shall we go?


I'm still a little curious.

Is that all the wood you've got?

Working on it.

Well, I knew you'd be easy to find.

Did Elizabeth send you?

No, she mentioned that
you talked about a ridge

where the pines form a V.

You know, everyone always thinks

that they're the first
person to discover this.

Well, it's beautiful here.


And I never get tired of this view.

Not much of a f*re
you've got going on there.

That's why I'm chopping wood.

You must have been cold last night.

You've got your tent
opening facing west.

Did you really just come
all the way up here to...

To apologize to you.

For thinking you had
anything to do with Walden.

And, you know, to see... to
see what's happening with you.

Like I said, I always
considered you more of a poet.

Not someone who'd be roughing
it out in the woods like this.

Well, do you need anything
before you head back to town?

A cup of coffee would be nice.

I don't drink it.

Tea then.


I'll heat up some water.

I'll chop some more wood for you.

Gentlemen, we have no
prisoners for transfer here.

We're dropping off, Inspector.

Top of the morning to ya.

I thought you were in Benson Hills.

I was, got myself a nice
room at the Southern.

The service is excellent
there, by the way.

Mr. Gowen here claims
he's blown up a coal mine.

He also said he had no right doing it.

He's turning himself in.

I'll grab the transport
record for you to sign

and we'll be on our way.

You could have given me some warning.

Well, I didn't know there
was any kind of etiquette

to turning oneself in.

You've gone and done it now.

I don't normally say this to prisoners,

but it was nice talking.

My pleasure entirely.

I hate to break this up but as you say,

this man is a prisoner.

Let's get you inside and out of sight.

MOLLY: Thank you, Henry.


Hooray for Gowen! He's the hero!

Here, here!

What do you know, Henry? You're a hero.

Thank you, Henry!


"Women are often led to
suspect they're pregnant

by symptoms of such doubtful
significance that... "

Hello, you two.

Faith. Hello.

What a coincidence. I
have that very same book.

You don't say.

It isn't that we didn't trust your
professional opinion, in fact we...

It never hurts to be informed.

See? I told you.

I think Rosemary would
feel much more assured

if she could ask you
some more questions.

Just for clarity's sake.

Let's take a walk.



My turn.

Allie, are you working here?

I sure am.

Robert's busy delivering
the mail and the Valley Voice

twice a week now so
I'm taking his place.

Well, that's wonderful.

Now, what did you mean by "my turn"?

I need help with finding
someone for my dad to marry.

I'm sorry, what?

I need help with
finding someone for my...

No, no, I heard you the first time.

Uh, did your father ask for
your help finding someone?

Well... no.

And do you know if he
even wants to get married?

Well, I thought he wanted to marry you

and that would have been great,

but to each their own, I suppose.

Then I could have sworn he
was interested in Miss Tsu,

only now I'm not so sure.

She's not even in town.

And lately I'm wondering
about Dr. Carter.

All right, Allie.

You just need to trust me.

You'll know when your dad is
thinking about getting married.


He'll tell you.


Allie, you are the most important
person in the world to him.

He's going to include you.

Heath's Pond.

What a great place for a picnic, yep.

- Joseph.
- Woah!


- Let me help!
- That would be good!


Ok, there we go. Put that down.




Here we are.

Now, what about the food?


It's the food or this blanket.


I'm sorry we've been fussing.

I am, too.

Thank you for doing this.

I'll do anything for you, baby.

Would you talk to my father?

I'm hoping you two can get past
your differences for all our sakes.

You know your father never thought

I was good enough for you.

Do you hear me complaining?


It may be the wrong time of
year to have ourselves a picnic.

Maybe not.

BILL: Henry, I should tell
you that I've made some calls.

The oil company intends
on prosecuting you

to the full extent of the law.

I'm afraid that means
two felony accounts,

three misdemeanors at least.

I'm not hopeful

you won't spend a good
number of years in prison.

Well, I hear Granville is pretty swank.

I would like to look up some
legal precedents for your defense.

Gratis, of course.

We hold the good thought.

You know, I am a little low on food.

That's a rookie mistake,
not packing enough supplies.

Well, I was packing for one.

"I went into the woods

because I wish to learn
what it had to teach."

Henry David Thoreau.

Is that why you came up here?

I needed time to think.

You think too much. Or too little.

I'm not sure what.

Come on, tell me you never
need time to think about

where you're going in life.

Where you wanna be going.

Sure. From time to time, yeah.

But, I mean, you and
I are different people.

Oh, I hadn't noticed.

Lucas, I'm a Mountie.

I have to look at
things black and white.

Good and bad. Right and wrong.

You know what I mean?

It must be nice to have some
time to stop and think then.

Well, you know, I did bring a bed roll.

And I think I packed some extra food.


That was wonderful.

Thank you so much for taking the time.

I'm worried about you.

You needn't be.

Is there anything I can do for you?

Anyone I can reach out to?

There's one thing.

If you would uh, if you
would give that to Joseph.

He does a lot of good work
with the church in town.

He doesn't need to
know where it came from.

So, you said that doctors
classify signs of pregnancy

as reliable, presumptive...

Probable, and positive.

And when you first saw me you
thought that I was presumptive.


Well, Lee thinks that
I'm presumptive, as well.

Some pregnancies are more
difficult to diagnose.

You may still be pregnant even
though you're asymptomatic now.

On the off chance that I am pregnant,

what would happen next?
How would I know for sure?

You would feel the baby move.

This early? Well, what would that...

It's a sensation in your lower
abdomen, right about here,

and it would be very gentle,

and more often than
not it goes unnoticed

but if you are pregnant
you would feel a quivering.

Some women have described it

as the fluttering of a bird's wings.

Thank you for being so patient.

- I mean, I know I'm the patient, but...
- Lee still has no idea?


But, I think, it might
be time to tell him.

Come in!

I thought I might find you here.

Oh, Faith, I completely
lost track of time.

I am so sorry.

It's ok.

Mr. Robichaud cancelled and
Mrs. Pechlaner rescheduled.

So, any idea what you might do in here?

I won't go into details yet.


- I have a confession.
- About Nathan?

It's been that obvious?

No, but I've carried a torch
and I know all the signs.

I've become more interested in
Nathan than just as a friend.

It started right after his accident.

And that's perfectly understandable.

And unacceptable. I'm his doctor.

Acting on my feelings would be
absolutely wrong and unethical.

Faith, you're human.

It's an understood
precept in medical school

that you never even consider having
a relationship with a patient.

Rules are meant to be broken.

A very bad joke and very bad timing.

Yes, Lee should have asked if
you wanted help with the loan.

But he was being a friend

while showing you he
appreciates all you do

when it comes to your work.


We were talking about your father.

- That has nothing to do with...
- Oh, I think it does.

It was right here in
this room you told me

you wanna make something
of yourself in business.

I remember.

You still want to prove to my father

you can be a success without him.

[EXHALES] What's wrong with that?

Dignity and self-respect are one thing,

but pride should never
be a motivator for doing,

or not doing, anything.


I will speak to your father

about going into the business with him.

But Minnie, I can't promise anything.

No, you wouldn't wanna do that.

Well, it certainly wasn't
the welcome that I expected

nor that I deserved,

but I uh, I'm willing to accept
whatever the court metes out.

Rosemary, might I interrupt?

Of course, you're part of the story.

Uh, actually I'd rather
keep what I have to say

between Henry and myself.

[WHISPERING] I was wrong and I
hope in time you can forgive me.

ELIZABETH: Hi Florence.

News travels fast.

Bill claims you're the talk
of the town in Benson Hills.

What? I best file my story.

I don't wanna be scooped
by a newspaper called

"The Benson Beetle".

Have you seen Joseph?

Not yet.

Would you ask him to
come by here when you do?

All right.

How are you feeling?

You know the saying "I
feel a weight is lifted"?

I feel that.

And one you've been
carrying a very long time.

Redemption of any kind has its cost.

I knew that when I made the decision

to do what I had to do.

I'm... I'm no hero.

Cleaning up one's own
mess is not a hero's work.

I would really very much appreciate it

if you could help scuttle
Rosemary's article.


You're back. Did you find Lucas?


He's fine.

I don't know what Gustave
was so worried about.

He'll be back tonight.

Thank you, Nathan.

I really appreciate what you did.

You know, um...

you could do a lot worse
than marrying Bouchard.

Try not to lose him like you lost me.


You better be careful, people
are gonna start talking.

Norman? It's Leland.
We have an exclusive.

Biggest story in years.

Yup. Need you to
re-build the front page.

Yes, that's right, for
publication tonight.

Rosemary is knocking
out the lead right now.

How many words can I use?
How many words can I use?

You give me as many words
as you've got, sweetheart.

Excuse me.

Uh, hold on one minute, Norman.

All right, here's the lead.

I know you're trying to
get out the next edition...

... But who would have guessed

- that long-time town resident...
- Rosemary,

I really need to talk
to you as my friend

and not just as the editor.

Henry would appreciate it very much

if you wouldn't publish his story.


Who cares about "The Benson Beetle?"

Norman, never mind.

Thank you.

Now, I need to go find
Joseph. And talk to Gustave.


If you'd like me to come in early...

Oh, no. The usual time is fine.

Nathan? Nathan.

Well, it's nice seeing you around...

Are you upset?


Actually, I think I'm relieved.

Whoo! It's getting cold out there.

Thank you for coming.

I came as quick as I could.

The church appreciates your donation.

I don't know what you're talking about.

Elizabeth didn't give you up.

In fact, I didn't
consider it until just now.

That money will go a long
way helping folks in need.

Thank you.

I brought you something to read.

I hope that's ok.

That's kind of why I asked you to come.

I don't know how to
pray. Would you show me?

It would be my privilege.

[CRYING] Is this ok?

That's perfect, Henry.

Just perfect.

You sounded upset on the phone.

May I offer you something?

Oh, I don't know. A
tall glass of whiskey?

Grape juice?

I'm not sure why I put this off.
Well, that's not quite right.

I listened to Faith and
thought about her diagnosis

and I made a decision.

I take it whatever she told you...


- Oh, do you think you need to...
- No, no. He's just fussy tonight.

He'll call again if he really needs me.

[SIGHS] I don't wanna be dramatic.

This is my last will and testament.


And I don't want you to be dramatic.

I'm not going... well,
wherever one goes, any time soon

so let there be no handwringing here.

But as an attorney I
do advise my clients

to get their affairs in
order before they may need to.

Do you have any more grape juice?

Without asking what Faith said...

There are things that can help.

That'll mean time for me in Union City.


Hey, Jack.

Hey, you wanna come over
here and have some grape juice

with me and your mom?

Yes, please.



Well, you heard him,
mom. Give us a pour.

And thank you.

Thank you.


Thank you for waiting.

That took longer than I expected.

Not a problem.

Are you sure you're
gonna be okay driving back

from Union City alone?

Oh, I can do that with my eyes closed.

Well, I wouldn't suggest
that, but all right.

That's third gear.

Second. You're getting closer.

MOLLY: Are you sure you
wouldn't rather that I drive?

BILL: Yeah. I'm sure.

All done.

What do you say we go get a bite to eat?

Oh, I don't think so.

I... I'm just not
feeling up for it tonight.

And we don't have an edition to put out.

What do you say we just go home?

That is the best idea
you've had all day.

Have you given any more thought

to entertaining an offer
from the Hearst newspaper?

Nope. Not one moment.

- MAN: f*re! f*re!
- Oh.



- Sweetheart, you wait here.
- No! No, Lee!

There might be more people inside, ok?

Everybody out!

Everybody out, let's
go, let's go. Come on!

- Oh, my gosh. Are you ok?
- Gustave, is there
anybody else back there?

- Possibly.
- All right, you go. I'll be right back!

Gustave! Where's Lee?

He's still in there.





- Oh, sweetheart.
- Oh, Lee.

Are you ok?


The saloon's on f*re.

I sent Coop to ring the bell and
asked Minnie to come over here

and stay with little Jack, ok?

- Oh, my goodness!
- I'm going now.

I'll be right behind you!

Clear the way!

Tap those water barrels!

Roll out the f*re hoses!

The saloon's on f*re.

Who knows if it's gonna spread

but I don't want you
locked in here if it does.

- Are you and Lee all right?
- Yes.

Elizabeth, the saloon.

Let's see how close we can get.

Have you seen Lucas?




Are you ok? Is anyone inside?

I don't know.

MAN: We need more pressure.

I suppose it could
have been a lot worse.


How am I gonna repay Hickam this time?

After the derrick f*re I... well,
I tried to send him on vacation.

He really did save the day.


Tom's dart is gone.

My legacy may never
be any better than his.

I very much doubt that.

You know, I never actually
opened your letter.

It explained where I was going and why.

I had a feeling I knew what it said.

You were blaming yourself for any danger

you might have caused
Jack and me with Walden,

and you were doing the same

about the mine potentially reopening,

and with the sale of the oil
company you were feeling unsure

about what you'd do next in business.

You knew all that
without reading my letter?

Next time I'll just save the stationary.

When I asked you if you'd
changed your mind about us,

about our future together,

for some reason I was
doubting what I know about you

and I realized there's no
need for me to ever doubt you.

Well, I feel the same way about you.

But thank you for the reminder.

To me you aren't what you do.

Nor are you the sum of your possessions.

Even if you'd come back and
all of this had been gone,

burnt in the f*re,

there would still be love.

Making me the richest man alive.

I've had lots of time to
think while I was away.

I've always been
forthright and plain spoken

but I wasn't with you.

I didn't mean to mislead you,

but I didn't tell the truth
until it came out on its own.

You were in a bad situation

and I'm happy you're out of it now.

I am, too.

- Miss Tsu.
- Hello, Allie.

Hey, we still haven't gone for a ride.

Well, what're you doing now?



Go have fun.

I have to work.

Come on.

Three, two, one...

- [POP]


[LAUGHS] Oh, Ned!

Oh, you're a slice.

FIONA: Although, he's decided
to step down as mayor,

here's to Mike Hickam! Here, here!

ALL: Here, here!

I was only planning for our future

by hoping to preserve our past.

Well, that's the platform you
should have run on for mayor.


- Hi.
- Hey.

How are your headaches?

Better. Not gone entirely, but better.

Well, let's see if
they continue to lessen

over the next few weeks.

- Um, I hear that Bill's mayor again.
- That is the rumor.

Although he hasn't
said anything to me yet.


Faith, you and I need to speak.


That's Henry's car. Was Henry with you?

No, he isn't. Why?

Because I just realized I
have no idea where he is.

Henry? Hen...

Morning. Picked up the newspaper.

Everything all right?

Everything's fine.

I am exhausted.

Well, you were very brave last night.

I don't know about that.

I was just trying to do whatever I could

to help protect the town.


I can't imagine living anywhere else.

- You are absolutely right.
- Mmm-hmm.

Phooey on that Mr. Gilchrist
and his newspaper chain.

This is where we belong.

Phooey. That's a good word.

Goodnight, sweetheart.

Good morning, sweetheart.

Wouldn't it be wonderful to
raise a child in Hope Valley?


- Lee?
- Mmm?

- Lee. Wake up.
- Hmm?

I feel fluttering. Like
little bird's wings.

I'm sure of it.

I'm pregnant.

That's too bad. Take an
antacid, you'll feel better.

What'd you just say?

We're gonna have a baby.

I don't understand.

You're gonna be a father.

And I'm gonna be a mother.


We're gonna have a baby?



We're having a baby!
We're having a baby!

Lee, where are you going?

We're having a baby!

We're having a baby!!!

I mean... I mean... not right
now, but we're gonna have a baby!

Lee, put on some clothes!

Who needs clothes?

Well, at least put on some slippers.

- I love you.
- I love you.

We're having a baby!


We're having a baby!
We're having a baby!!!


We're having a baby!

- Here you go, Mama.
- Thank you, sweetheart.

- Here you go, buddy.
- Thanks, bud.

Oh my goodness, my
pockets are getting full.

I like that he enjoys
collecting little rocks.

I used to enjoy finding
four-leaf clovers.

Oh. For me it was feathers.

Hope is the thing with feathers.

Yes, it is.

Mama, mama, I have
something for both of you.

Hold out your hand.

Oh, my goodness. Thank you.

Here you go, Mama.

Here you go, buddy.

Why thank you.

I was talking with my mom
and I think she is hoping

we might be in Hamilton for Christmas.

I'd really love for them to meet you.

I had a trip planned
already to meet them.

Oh. To Hamilton?


To ask your father for
your hand in marriage.

LITTLE JACK: Mama? Here you go, Mama.

Uh... thank you.


But I just called him instead.

Elizabeth, I've never been more sure

that you are all that matters

and I know that you're the
one I will love forever.

I could never desire anything greater

than to be the one that
you love forever in return.

So, if you would

allow me to be a father to your son

and agree to be my wife.

Elizabeth, will you marry me?


Yes, to it all.


LITTLE JACK: Did we do it, buddy?

- We sure did!
- Yay!

Come here, you



Oh, my goodness.
