This is not what it looks like.

[Jack scoffs]

Really? 'Cause it looks like
you're selling dr*gs out of my trailer.

- No, no, please, let me... let me explain.
- I don't wanna hear it.

- Save it for the police.
- Listen to me, Jack! Jack!

- Okay, you cannot call the cops.
- Really? Watch me.

[car approaching]

[Brady] Crap.

[exhales] You have to trust me.
I am on your side.

How the hell do you expect me
to believe a single thing...

I am not the bad guy here, okay?

Melissa is.


Mike and I are working together
to take her down.

- What the hell are you talking about?
- Look.

I swear to God,
I will tell you everything.

But if you don't let me go outside
and talk to Melissa right now,

we are both d*ad.

[menacing music continues]

[car doors closing]

[trailer door opens]

[door closes]

[Brady] Hey. What are you...
What are you doing here? It's so late.

- I was, uh... I just setting up the, uh...
- Cut the crap, Brady.

- [Brady] No! Hey!
- [man mutters]

- [Brady grunts]
- [car doors closing]

[menacing music continues]

- [Jack on phone] Mike, they've got Brady.
- Who's got Brady?

[Jack] My business partner,
Melissa Montgomery.

Brady said he's working with you.
What the hell's going on, man?

Okay, listen to me.
Melissa and her people are very dangerous.

Are you following them?

They're headed southwest
on Walker Road towards Garberville.

All right, I'm on my way.
Stay with the SUV, but do not engage.

- Do you understand me?
- Yeah, copy that.

[Mike] All right.
I'm bringing the cavalry.

[suspenseful music playing]

[Brady grunting]

[door closes]

[Brady groaning]


[Brady] What the hell is going on?

- [bl*ws landing]
- [Brady groaning]

[Gene] Start talking, pretty boy.

Let's go.

[dog barking in distance]

- What's the matter? Rat got your tongue?
- [blow landing]

[Brady panting]

[Melissa] I think you
know a lot more than you let on.

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

[breathing shakily]


[breathing heavily]


[Melissa] You know, Daniel,
there's a famous quote I come back to

time and time again in this line of work.

"When someone shows you who they are,
believe them."

I'll spare you the suspense.

Your life ends tonight.

But if you tell us what your cop friends
know about our operation,

I'll make it quick.



[Melissa] You continue to disappoint me.

It didn't have to be like this, Daniel.
Now, tell me who you're working with.

I ain't telling you sh*t.
You're wasting your time.

You're right. You are wasting my time.

Make sure it hurts.

- [ominous music playing]
- [Brady grunting]

- [blow landing]
- [Brady groans, coughs]

[metal clattering]

[Melissa] What's that?

[Gene] I'll check it out.
You get out of here.

[suspenseful music playing]

- [keys jingling]
- [car starting]

[suspenseful music continues]

[metal clanging]

[dramatic music playing]


[sirens wailing]


[Brady] Jack!

- Jack!
- [grunts]

[Duncan] Hands where I can see them!

Melissa Montgomery, you're under arrest.
Step out of the vehicle.

- [dramatic music continues]
- [officers clamoring]

[Duncan] You have
the right to remain silent. Anything...

- [dramatic music continues]
- [grunting]



[thug groans]


[both groaning]


- [pipe cracks viciously]
- [thug groans]

- [Jack] Oh, you took your time.
- [pipe clatters]

How are you guys? You guys okay?

[Brady] Never been better.

[Kn*fe slicing]

[Brady] Thanks.

What about Melissa?

We got her. It's over.


[Gene] Yo, rat!

- [Mike] Get down!
- [g*n f*ring]


- [Jack] Mike! Hey!
- [Brady] Mike!

- [Jack] Are you h*t? Are you h*t?
- [tires squealing]

Officer down! Call an ambulance now!

[officer shouting indistinctly]

[Jack] He's okay. He's gonna be all right.

[grave music playing]

[Jack] You're gonna be okay.
We're gonna get you out of here.

[officer] Call an ambulance! Officer down!

{an }[grave music fading]

{an }[theme music playing]

[boot zipping]

[birds chirping]

[Preacher] Hey.
You sneaking out on me again?

No. No. Hey, um...

- I...
- Uh-huh.


I hate goodbyes,
they depress the hell out of me. [laughs]

It's just easier to skip that part
and end on a fun memory, you know?

Yeah. Yeah, I know what you mean.

Well, let's make a pact.

Every time I ship out,
let's not make a big deal about it.

Okay? It'll make it normal. Like I...

Like you're going to work for the day...
instead of a month.

- Or longer.
- Exactly.


Okay. So, what do we say, then?

Instead of goodbye.

- [sweet music playing]
- Um...

I'll see you when I see you?

I'll see you when I see you.

[sweet music continues]

- [footsteps retreating]
- [door opens]

[phone vibrating]

- [door closing]
- [vibrating continues]

Hey, Mel.

- [grave music playing]
- What?

[indistinct chatter on PA]

[Mel sighs]

- Hey.
- Hey, Jack. Oh my God.

- No, I'm okay. I'm okay. How's Mike?
- He lost a lot of blood.

The next hours are gonna be critical.

- [Jack] Oh God.
- Let's just hope he wakes up.

Hey, you know Mike, he's tough as nails.
He's gonna pull through.

- Where's Brady?
- He's still being questioned by the FBI.

I tried to vouch for him,
but without Mike to corroborate,

it's just our word
against a mountain of evidence.

I can't believe I let this thing happen!
She set up shop right under my nose!

Jack, you didn't let anything happen.

- Well...
- Her own brother didn't even know.

What can I do?

This is my mess to clean up, but thanks.

[softly] Okay. Okay, well, I'm gonna go
set up the beer garden for the carnival.

- [Jack] Oh yeah.
- Got your back if you wanna stay.

- Well, I'll get there later if I can.
- All right.

I'm gonna call Doc
and let him know that I'll start tomorrow.

No, no, no. Please don't do that.
Go to the clinic.

- Are you sure?
- Yeah. Positive.

- I'm gonna stick around too, so...
- Okay.

Okay, well, if you need me, call me.

- I know. Okay.
- Okay.



[exhales deeply]

[expectant music playing]

Lizzie! Hot dog stand's set up.

- What's next, boss?
- Can you check the mini-donut situation?

If we don't have enough,
we'll have a mutiny.

[Denny] No problem.

Hey, uh, do you have a sec to talk?

[Lizzie] Um...

Are you okay?
Is this just carnival stress or...

Uh, yeah, kinda.

Sorry, I just have
a million things on my mind right now.

Maybe we can find some time tonight.
Once this is all up and running.

Yeah, sure thing.

Good, 'cause there's something
I want to talk to you about.


Mel, we heard about Mike,
and everybody's pulling for him.

- Yeah.
- And how's Jack?

[Mel inhales deeply]

You know, he's... he's shaken up,
but he's holding it together.

- You know how he is.
- [Doc] Yeah. [sighs]

He's still at the hospital with Brie.

- If you need to be with them, you can...
- Well, thanks. It's okay.

He said he was gonna call me
if he needed anything.

Besides, he didn't want me
to miss our first official staff meeting.

Ah! Well, very well. Let's get to it.

Yes. Uh, question.

- Why are we having a staff meeting?
- [Doc laughing]

Well, first of all,
it is to welcome you back.


- Yeah.
- [Mel laughing]

And now that we are in fact a full staff,

I thought it would be a nice way
to keep us all on the same page.

All right. First item on the agenda
is giving Muriel an official title.

I suggest office manager.
All in favor say aye.

- Aye.
- Aye.

[Doc] Well, that's settled.

Fabulous. And I only have one request.

A desk.

And one that does not need to be
propped up with a legal pad.

That shouldn't be a problem.

Uh, second item.

Our patient load
is growing by the day, and, uh...

As I begin to scale back some,
uh, I think we should be discussing

the best ways we can move forward
to serve our community.

Well, given that most of our patients
live in rural areas,

I think implementing
a telehealth component

would be really beneficial
to broaden their access.

Yeah. Cameron makes a good point.

We could cover more patients in a day.

Not to mention
we've seen the benefits already.

- Delivering the Nickerson baby.
- Yeah.

Also, expanding on that, you know,
most of the women in town

still have to drive an hour
to see an OB/GYN.

So I was thinking that
we could start a birthing center.

We create a, you know, home-like
environment for expectant mothers,

we'd offer preconception counseling,

lactation consulting, postpartum care.

Whatever the community needs,
we could provide it right here.

[gentle music playing]

Guessing by your silence
you're not into those ideas?

No. No, no, no, far from it.

I think the future of our clinic
is looking brighter than ever.


Uh, item number three on the agenda.

- [Muriel] Ah!
- [all laughing]

[indistinct chatter]

[monitor beeping]

[door opens]




- Are you okay?
- It's nothing.

[woman on PA] Dr. Allen to Cardiology.
Dr. Allen to Cardiology.

[Brie sighs]

- [Brady] How's he doing?
- He's fighting.

The guy saved my life
and then... [inhales deeply]

- I should've...
- It's okay. Come here.

I'm glad he did. And you know what?

I'm sure he's gonna wake up. Okay?


Really wish you would've told me
you were a CI.

I know. I was just trying to get you out.

Get us out.

But none of that changes the fact
that we're all here because of me.

And, uh... I get it.

If you and I are too far gone.

[wistful music playing]

Are we?

It's not that I don't appreciate
what you've done.

You know?
Melissa's in jail because of you.

You put yourself at risk for me.

But, yeah, because of the trial
and just all of this...


Brady, I will love you forever.

But I need you to know
that things have changed for me.


I get it.


[gentle music playing]

[exhales sharply]

[hums softly]

[Mel] Hey.

[chuckles] Sorry, I was looking
for creamer and I couldn't resist.

Oh, those are my favorite.

Have as many as you want,
they're delicious.

[Ava] Mmm.

- Hey, can I ask you some medical advice?
- [Mel] Yeah, of course.

Perks of staying above the clinic.

I made that follow-up appointment
with Dr. Kane about the hysterectomy.

[Mel] Yeah.

And I was wondering if we could make
a list of questions I should ask.

In case I, like, dissociate from my body.

[laughs] Yes, absolutely. Yeah.

[inhales deeply] Uh...

Okay, so, um, you're gonna want to ask him

about hormone replacement therapy
and what that entails.

[Ava] Mm-hmm.

[Mel] Recovery time after surgery.

His plan for pain management.

Whether I'll regret
not having children. [scoffs]

[downbeat music playing]


[inhales deeply]

You know... [sighs]

I have always thought
if I didn't carry my own child,

I'd be missing out on something.

But the more Jack and I
have been talking about it,

the more I realize

being a parent is...

is so much more than how you got there.

So if you decide
you want to be a mom someday,

you'll find a way.

[music continues]

[siren wailing]

[Brady] Hey.

[Jack] `Hey.

The FBI let you go.

Yeah, for now.
But I'm not off the hook yet.

Look, man, I...

I'm sorry. Mike said if I told you
it would jeopardize the whole case.

No, I get it. Took a lot of courage
to do what you did, man.

Yeah, well, Mike doesn't wake up,
nothing I did even matters.

I just hope he's okay.

You on your way out?

Yeah, Brie's still here, and I just...

I wanna give her some space.

So you and her?

Another casualty of this whole thing.

[phone chimes]

[exhales sharply]

[Jack] What is it now?

It's Lark. The FBI's at the glamping site.

[dark music playing]

[Cameron] Hey, so about earlier.

You know, I actually thought you were
gonna ask Doc for his permission.

- What, in the staff meeting?
- [chuckles]

Can you imagine? [laughs]

Yeah, but you know what? We are gonna
have to address that at some point.

You mean talk to Doc about us?

I don't see any other way around it.

[inhales sharply]

So, look, I think if we just tell him
how we really feel about each other,

then he will see that this is completely
different than the whole Mel situation.

Okay. Yeah. I will speak to him today.

No. No, you need to let me do it.

We are old friends.
And as you know, I'm very hard to resist.

[chuckles softly] Yeah.

[sweet music playing]

[indistinct radio chatter]

Uh, excuse me. Yeah, I'm Jack Sheridan.
This is my property.

Mr. Sheridan, this site and all assets
are now property of the FBI

in connection
to the Montgomery investigation.

Uh, well, can you tell me for how long?

[agent] A case like this could be
six months or six years.

[Jack] Six years?

These tenants need to be out
by end of day.

Uh, ma'am, these... these are not tenants,
these are evacuees from the f*re.

- They got no place to go.
- Sorry, it's out of my hands.

[helicopter hovering]

Jack, I got here as quick as I could.

They had me and Jo Ellen
in for questioning for, like, hours.

How's Mike?

Well, we don't know yet.
Brie's gonna keep me posted.

I swear, Jack, I wouldn't have
let my sister anywhere near you

if I had any idea what she was up to.

I feel like such an idiot.
I just hope you can forgive me.

Look, Nick, there's nothing to forgive.

Well, if there's absolutely
anything I can do, please.

I... I just gotta figure out
what I'm gonna do with all these families.

[Nick] Yeah.

Are any of the rooms
at the B&B still habitable?

Well, uh, the east side of the building
ducked the worst of the f*re.

Mostly smoke damage from busted windows.

All right, great. Well, Brady and I
will start packing everybody up.

Why don't you get Bert and those guys
to clean up those rooms?

- [Nick] Will do.
- All right.

[uplifting music playing]

So, what the hell happened last night?

Well, it turns out Jack's business partner
wasn't who he thought she was.

But he had no idea
when he said you could stay here.

[Lark sighs]

Did you?

Yeah, I did.

That was, uh...
I was trying to do something about it.


Of course you were.

- Brady?
- Yeah?

Will you ride
the kiddie cars with me tonight?

Honey, I think Brady's
probably got other plans.

Actually, um, Brady does not.

Tell you what,
how about I ride the kiddie cars with you

if you promise to go on
the berry-go-round with me.

Pinky promise?

Pinky promise.

[both laughing]

It's a date.

[hopeful music playing]

Unless it's not.

Yeah, no, it's... it's, um...

It's a date.

- Come on, you got more stuff in there?
- Yeah.

So are you a cotton candy fan
or are you more of a...

[hopeful music continues]



- [grunts]
- Hi.

Mike. Hey.


[woman on PA] Dr. Lee to Radiology.
Dr. Lee to Radiology.

How are you feeling?

Like I just got sh*t.

I'm happy to see your face.

You, uh... You saved Brady's life.

Brie, I've been wanting
to tell you about all of this.

[gentle music playing]

- [Brie sighs]
- Um...

[knocking on door]

Glad to see you're awake, Detective.

Once you get the all clear,
I was hoping you could

catch me up on what went down out there.

Um, yeah.
I will get out of your way, okay?

- I'll be outside.
- Sure. Here, have a seat.

[gentle music playing]

[music fades]

Room for one more?

I came as soon as I could.

[Jack groans, exhales]


You know, this is where
we were gonna raise a family.

[Mel inhales deeply]

Where our kids were gonna grow up,

where we were gonna
teach them how to swim.

This is where I was gonna build us a home.

Hey, we'll get the land back eventually.

Yeah, eventually.

Babe, this thing
breaks the wrong way, we're...

we're gonna lose everything.

Well, not everything.

You know, I mean,
as long as we're together, we are home.

[clicks tongue] Aw.

- [Mel laughs]
- [phone chimes]

[Jack breathes deeply]

- It's Brie.
- Mmm.

- Mike's awake. He's gonna be okay.
- Oh, thank God.

- Silver lining.
- [softly] Yeah.

All right. You know what?


We are gonna go to this carnival tonight,
and we are gonna have some fun.

Oh, I don't know about fun, but a...

a hot dog sounds
pretty good right about now.

That's the spirit!

- [Jack] You want a hot dog?
- I do.

[tranquil music playing]

[Muriel] Working hard or hardly working?

Oh, I'm just taking a moment for myself.

- You okay?
- Yeah. Yeah, I am. Uh...

I'm just wondering
where all the time went.

Took me years to build this place.

Feels like they went by in an instant.

So many memories. [chuckles]

And many more to come.

You still have all those tele-appointments
to look forward to. Remember?

- [chuckling] Oh, I do, indeed.
- [Muriel chuckles]

I, uh...

I don't want to interrupt your...
your thoughts, but I do have a request.

Oh, if you give a girl a desk...

[chuckling] Okay, lay it on me.

Cameron and I have feelings
for each other,

but he has made it very clear
that the clinic is his top priority.

And he does not want to disappoint you.
But this is not about Cameron.

This is about me.

I haven't been as lucky in love as some...


...and I know that Cameron
is still working to earn your trust,

but you can trust me.

- This is more than just a flirtation...
- Muriel.

I want to make something very clear.

I do not care what you
or Cameron do in your private lives.

But we are here for our patients only.

Do you suppose the both of you
could conduct yourselves

in a professional manner
while you're here at work?

Yes, I do.

Okay. I respect you too much
to tell you what to do in this department.

[gentle music playing]

Just... watch out for yourself, please.


- [phone ringing]
- [sighs]

Uh, I've gotta take this.

Thank you, Doc.

[ringing continues]

[phone beeps]

This is Dr. Mullins.

Is this in regards to the clinical trials?

[romantic song playing on jukebox]

[Hannah] You sure you're cool
to close up solo?

[Preacher] Yeah. Yeah,
everyone's headed to the carnival soon.

Anyways, I just gotta
close out the register.

I will be on my way.

Listen, I don't want to dampen your style,

but listening to sad songs in an empty bar
isn't gonna bring her back any sooner.

But, really, whatever happens with Kaia,
I want you to know I'm proud of you.


You were ready to swear off
dating altogether. Now look at you.

Oh, yeah, look at me.

She's been gone a few hours
and I am one song away

from slow dancing with a broomstick.

[laughs] Well...

If love was easy,
they wouldn't write songs about it.

I will see you at the carnival.

Wanna h*t the lights on your way out?

[romantic song continues]

[door opens]

Okay. Okay, I will change the song.

[Kaia] I kind of like it, actually.

I told you I hate goodbyes.

- You came back.
- Don't let it go to your head.

I am only here for work.

Well, I... I don't understand.
What about your promotion?

I was on my way to the airport,

and I got worried about
another brigade coming in.

And I thought to myself,
why am I going all the way to Alaska?

There's plenty of stuff on f*re here.

- You left your crew?
- [Kaia] Not exactly.

Took a few calls,
but I managed to swap with a friend

who's gonna lead up the post-f*re cleanup.

I owe a really nice bottle
of Japanese whiskey, but, uh...

I figured you could help me with that.

Oh, I know just the bottle.
I'll ship it out today.

So how did Jay take the news?

[Kaia sighs]

He went ballistic.

Turning him down
is hardly a career breaker.

And something tells me...
that I made the right decision.


how long is this assignment?

[clicks tongue] However long it takes.

Maybe months.

Why? You gonna get sick of me?

[romantic song continues]

[crowd screaming and laughing]

["So Happy It Hurts" continues]

[both cheering]

That one. Mm-hmm.

Thank you.

[indistinct chatter]

[all exclaiming]

[indistinct chatter]

I have won a lot of prizes
at the balloon pop in my day.

- Oh, you have, have you?
- Yeah.

My dad was an amazing darts player,
so we had a... a board in the garage.

[Jack] I did not know you played darts.

Well, you don't know
everything about me, Mr. Sheridan.

Apparently, I don't know everything
about a lot of the women in my life.

- What does that mean?
- Brie told me she's not gonna make it.

She hasn't left Mike's side
since this morning.

Oh, right.

I mean, that's cute and all,
but I didn't even know that was a thing.

Did you?

Well, you know,
I thought it might become one.


- Yeah.
- Hmm.

Well, I would love to get all the goss,
but I got my shift at the beer garden.

Okay, well, I'm gonna go meet Ava.

- All right. I'll see you in an hour?
- [Mel] Yes.

- Bye.
- [Mel] Bye.

[Lizzie] Can you believe
we really pulled all this off?

You pulled it off.
You should be proud. Really.

Thanks, Hope.

I got you something.


[Lizzie laughs]

I wanted to get one that said
"World's Best Boss," but they were out.

- [both laughing]
- It's the thought that counts.

I just wanted to thank you
for believing in me.

I never thought much about the future
or what I wanted to do with my life.

I always worried that people back home
didn't take me seriously, but...

[inhales deeply]...you did.

And that means the world to me.

Sweetheart, it was you who decided to step
onto the path you were meant to be on.

You took the leap of faith.
I just gave you a little push.

[Lizzie chuckles]

Now, go find your boyfriend
and have some fun,

you are officially off the clock.

Everything okay with you and Denny?

Yeah, um...

Everything's fine.

Why does everything taste so much better
in the deep fryer?

- You know why, because it's bad for you.
- Yeah.

Not gonna stop me
from going for round two.

Me neither.

Hey, how was your appointment
with Dr. King?

- Well, I brought my notes.
- Yeah?

- Thank you.
- Mm-hmm.

And we talked a lot.

And I've decided
I'm gonna have the hysterectomy.

But not before I freeze some eggs.

Okay. Well, that's great.

- I want to keep my options open, you know?
- [Mel] Mm-hmm.

- Just in case.
- Yeah.

I know I complain
about this place a lot, but...

days like this make me realize
how special it is.

- [Mel] Mm-hmm.
- I'm actually gonna miss Virgin River.

Hey, did you find someone
who wants to rebuild the farm?

No, but I found someone
who wants to turn it into a golf course.

And my sisters are ready to sell.

It's just a shame.
It was a pretty perfect place to grow up.


Not that you can see that now
when all that's left is an old tree swing.

[breathes deeply]

Wait, the tree swing survived the f*re?

Sort of.
I mean, it's burnt, but it's hanging.

- Can you believe that?
- No.

[Ava laughs]


[bell dings]

- [kids cheering]
- [Jack] Again?

Oh, you gotta do better than that!

- [kids cheering]
- Okay!

- [bell dings]
- [Jack] Whoo-hoo!

- [Mel] Hey!
- Oh, hey! You want a go?

Oh no, follow that up? I don't think so.

- [kid] Me, me!
- I think she does, though.

There you go, kiddo. You knock 'em d*ad.
Need a hand there, Mom.

[Mel] You think I can
steal you away from your fan club?

- Sure.
- [Mel] Yeah?

Wanna h*t the fun house?

Sure. After, can we go
on the Ferris wheel?

[Jack] Ooh! Yeah.

[chuckles] So you're telling me you just
happened to be in Sacramento?

No, I hired a guy that k*lled someone

so that I could testify at his trial
the same day you were there.

- [Brie] Mm-mmm!
- Yeah. Genius, right?

- [laughs]
- Wow, masterful. [chuckles]

[Mike grunts]

So is this how you pictured
our first date?

Chocolate shakes at Grace Valley Hospital?

Whoa, is this our first date?

I mean...

technically, if this counts, I did pay.

So that means I gotta go all out
for our second date then.

- [Brie] Yeah, you do.
- [laughs]

[sucks teeth]


Hey, there's something
that I need you to know.

Brady's the real hero.

It was his idea to go undercover
to help take Melissa down.

He risked his life,
and he did it all for you.

So... if that changes anything...

- [sweet music playing]
- It doesn't.

I wanna see where this goes.

- [crowd clamoring]

- [Cameron] Hi.
- [Jo Ellen] Hi.

Uh, can I get one ticket
to the Ferris wheel, please?


[Muriel] Actually, Jo Ellen,

can we get two tickets, please,
for the Tunnel of Love?

[Jo Ellen] Have either of you
been to a carnival before?

You can use your tickets
for whatever ride you want.

- Did you talk to Doc?
- Yes, and he's okay with it.

I mean, there are some rules,
but we can ride any ride we want.

Shall we?

Oh my.

[upbeat music continues]


- [people screaming]
- [all cheering]

[Charmaine] Hey, Doc!

- Charmaine! Here, sit.
- [laughing] Hi.

No, no, please. If I sit down, I'm never
gonna be able to get back up again.

[both laughing]

Oh, you look great. You are glowing.

Thanks! You know, I just wanted
to tell you that you were right.

Standing on my own two feet, uh...

It's not easy,
especially when they're so swollen,

but I'm doing it.

And it feels really good, so thank you.

- Well, I never doubted you for a second.
- Aw!

Well, I'm gonna go find some food.
You have a great night, okay?

Yeah. You too.

[grunts softly]

Oh no, thanks, dear.

But you love kettle corn!

Oh, I know, I'm just...
I'm not hungry, I suppose.

All right, Vernon, the jig's up.

Skipping a pretzel is one thing,
but passing on kettle corn

is a serious cry for help.

- [laughing]
- Something's up, spit it out.


So you remember that, uh, clinical trial
I was telling you about,

the one that would
help me retain my vision?


Well, someone dropped out.

And, uh... I took the spot.

Even though there's a risk?

Ah, if I don't do the trial, I'll...
I'll go blind eventually anyway, so...

why not give it a chance?

And I know I...

- I should have talked to you first, but...
- [Hope] Vernon.

I know I don't say
this kind of thing often enough, but...

your life is my life.

[gentle music playing]

Your heart is my heart.

Your crappy old eyes
are my crappy old eyes.

[Doc laughs]

For years, you've stood by my side.

No matter what happens,

I will always stand by yours.

When is the trial?

Just after New Year's.

Four months.

What do you want to do
with yourself until then?

[gentle music continues]

Oh, just...

a whole lot of this.

[barker] h*t the target, win a prize.

[carnival music playing]

They only had blue raspberry left.

Lucky for you, blue's my favorite.

You're my favorite.

So, um, we both had stuff to talk about.

Yeah, but you go first.


[barker yelling indistinctly]

Well, um...

I've been thinking a lot about
something Grandma Rose said last night.

What was it?

She thinks I'm making a mistake
staying in Virgin River.

She said I should travel
and get back on track for med school.

Well, what do you think?

I don't know.
I mean, at first I thought she was wrong.

But after thinking about it,
I'm not so sure.

I didn't think I had a future, but...

with you, I'm starting to see one.

And I know that you're so happy here.

But do you think
that there's a chance that you might...

- might want to come with me?
- Denny, I...

I think I'm pregnant.

[gentle music playing]

[barker] Come on over! Come on!

[continues indistinctly]

[Mel] You were pretty cute
with those kids back there.

- [Jack] Mmm.
- Looked like they were having a blast.

[Jack] Well, it was the least I could do,

given everything
they've been through lately.

[Mel] You know, I was thinking about
our hike at Angel's Peak,

and how sometimes you just need...

a change of perspective.

[Jack] Mmm.

You just need a different point of view,

which is actually why
I brought you up here.

I wanted to show you something.


But now that we're up here,

I am completely turned around,
and it's dark, and I... [chuckles]

["What a Time to Be Alive"
by The Guest And The Host playing]

- [Jack] You don't know where it is?
- I don't know.

- [fireworks popping]
- [crowd cheering]

- [Jack] Wow!
- [upbeat music playing]

Well, at least we got
a front-row seat for this.

Hey, on the way home,
can we take a detour?

Sure. Where are we going?

You'll see.

- [popping continues]
- [crowd cheering]

[song continues]

[fireworks whistling, bursting]



[laughing] Oh my God! Hi!

Oh, wait, you two know each other?

Yeah, we... we delivered a baby together.

I mean, sort of.

Well, you were amazing.
She's a total natural.

- Uh, you must be Jack.
- Ah!

- [Kaia] Nice to meet you.
- Yeah. Likewise.

Hey, listen, we're just about to h*t
the, uh, Tunnel of Love.

- Double date?
- [Mel] Fancy.

Oh, we would love to,
but we're on our way out.

Mel has a surprise for me.

Yeah, but we should
get together soon though,

and I want to know more about this.

- Have fun, you two.
- [Kaia] Bye.

- [Mel] Good night.
- Night.

[phone ringing]

Oh, sorry, I gotta take this.
It's my new boss.

- Yeah. Yeah, no worries.
- [phone beeps]

This is Bryant.

Oh, uh, yeah. Sure.
I'll see you first thing. See you soon.

Everything okay?


Yeah. That's, um...

That's a first. The...

brigade was doing clean-up
near a service road by Aldergrove,

and they found a body.

From the f*re?
I thought there were no casualties.

There weren't.
Looks like it's been up there awhile.

Like, uh, like someone buried it there.

[dark music playing]

[sighs] So much for
a sleepy small town, huh?


[Charmaine breathing heavily]

[tense music playing]

[man] Hello, Charmaine.



I thought you were d*ad.

[smacks lips]

Yeah, and so did the person
who tried to k*ll me.

I don't have to hide from her anymore.

What do you... What do you want?

[Calvin] You know what I want.

I wanna be a father to my boys.

[tense music continues]

[Jack] You gonna tell me what we're doing
at Lilly's Farm?

[Mel] Well, you'll see.

- [Jack] Mysterious.
- [Mel] Uh-huh. [laughs]

[crickets chirping]

[owl hooting]

[Jack] Still don't get it.

[Mel] I always loved this tree swing.

Ava said it was still standing.

[inhales deeply]

[Jack] No way.

I mean...

that's a miracle.

Yeah. [laughs]

Do you remember
the first time we came here?

Yeah, of course.

You know, my sister and I used to have
one of these when we were kids.

Oh, yeah?


It was my dream
when I was younger to be a vet.

Have a big farmhouse
and fill it with kids.

Do you remember what you said?

Yeah, it was something like,

"Dreams are funny things."

"They come true when you least expect it."

[Mel] Mm-hmm.

What if that time was now?

["Somewhere Only We Know" playing]

I don't understand.

If your dream is to build us a home,

I can't think of a better place
to do it than right here.

Ava's gonna sell the farm
and somebody's gonna buy it.

What if it was us?

- I mean, can we do that?
- [Mel] Yeah.

Yeah, we could build our home
right here on this plot of land.

Fill it with kids, our kids.

However they come, whenever they come.

- [exhales deeply]
- What do you think?

♪ I'm getting tired
And I need somewhere to begin ♪

I think it's perfect.

- [Mel] Yeah?
- [laughing] Yeah!

[song continues]

♪ Talk about it somewhere only we know? ♪

♪ 'Cause this could
Be the end of everything... ♪

You know what else?
It'd be a perfect place to get married.

[Mel] Hmm.

♪ Somewhere only we know ♪

♪ Somewhere only we know ♪

[song fading]

["Jingle Bells" playing]


[laughing] Okay, well, tell them that
Auntie Mel can't wait to see them too.

[Jack] Oh, hey, Joey!

Hope you guys are looking forward
to your first Virgin River Christmas.

Okay, so, wait, I don't understand.
Could you not find our old stockings?

[Joey] No, I found them.
I found them, but...

Okay, don't freak out.

Joey, come on. You know when you say that
the first thing I'm gonna do is freak out.

[Joey] Just listen to me, okay?

I... I was digging through
the old Christmas boxes, and I...

I found some other stuff
mixed in with Mom's decorations.

[Mel] What kind of stuff? [exhales]

[Joey] You're not gonna believe this,
but I found this whole stack of letters

and... and postcards addressed to Mom
from Virgin River.


Wait, Mom knew someone in Virgin River?

[Joey] Apparently quite well. I mean...

Mel, I've been reading these all morning.

They're love letters.


[Joey] Mom was having an affair
with someone in Virgin River.

And I think this guy might be your father.
