“When Calls the Heart” fans are wondering about the fate of Daniel Lissing’s character Jack, and there’s a sense of concern. Some TVRuckus readers are beginning to ask if he’s being written off the show.
They desperately want Jack to return safely to Hope Valley after his assignment in the northern territories, to fulfill the promise of marrying Elizabeth Thatcher. After all, the couple just got engaged. His immediate departure even cut short efforts to give them a “proper” engagement party, as Rosemary said.
There’s a sense of panic building among #Hearties and along with that, some angry comments after the episode “My Heart Will Go On”. We posed a question to a representative of Hallmark Channel today which netted this response: “They’ll have to tune in each Sunday night through April 23rd to see where Elizabeth & Jack’s journey leads!”
Here’s just a sample of what #Hearties are saying:
Bill Demarco: “My wife and I have watched the show since the beginning and have become avid When Calls the Heart watchers. Jack is an important part of the series and if dropped the series will loose its weekly viewers in great numbers and be another lost program people won’t remember in six months.”
JPack: “This is my favorite show. and Jack leaving to go up north was just pitiful. Keep it the way it is.”
Pam Baumgardner: “Jack better not be leaving show.”
Bonnie Klaith: “I am losing faith in Hallmark. Can you not see that the reason people watch this wonderful program is because it oozes hope. We watch the show weekly to see the relationships of the main characters grow, root for them to overcome adversity and make the Iives of everyone in the HOPE VALLEY community better. Jack is the glue in that community. Without Jack, where is that hope? Without Jack there is no Hope Valley.”
The episode was a turning point in “When Calls the Heart”. The romance between the town school teacher and the Mountie is at the center of the show. When they would make it official has been a question for a while now. If that weren’t enough for one night, Elizabeth Thatcher was reinstated to her teaching position. Abigail’s efforts were successful as she convinced a fellow teaching student of Elizabeth’s to help with that.
