When Calls The Heart: Erin Krakow Hints At What’s Next With Lucas In Season 9
Hearties will recall the final moments of season 8 of When Calls the Heart, where Elizabeth (Erin Krakow) finally ended the love triangle by realizing that Lucas (Chris McNally) is the one for her. Fans of Nathan (Kevin McGarry) were understandably upset. Many believed he was the better choice in Elizabeth’s life. So far, Erin has managed to ignore the controversy, but finally, she wants to reassure fans that Season 9 is definitely worth watching.

In a recent interview with TVLine, Erin Krakow teased some exciting details about Elizabeth’s budding romance with Lucas. “We’ve seen the fire burn between these two for years, and this season is no exception! Lucas and Elizabeth are finally getting to explore and enjoy their relationship,” she said.
However, as Hearties know, their relationship isn’t just about Elizabeth and Lucas. Another member of Elizabeth’s family is also fond of her handsome suitor. Viewers have seen Lucas interacting with Elizabeth’s son, Little Jack, and according to Erin, the pair will bond more in season 9.
“We’re also getting to see Lucas in a new light – as a father figure to Little Jack, who absolutely adores him,” she added.
Meanwhile, a teaser for season 9 was recently released by Hallmark Channel. In the clip, we see Lucas visiting Elizabeth’s house to drop off a toy sailboat for Little Jack. This is nothing spectacular in itself, but it is particularly heartwarming, as he picked out the toy with Jack’s late father in mind. Catch the moving moment in the teaser video included here:

While cute moments between Lucas and Little Jack are lovely, they might not be enough to win over diehard Nathan fans. However, it will surely soften the blow. Meanwhile, Krakow urges her fans to stop thinking about the love triangle and concentrate more on Elizabeth’s much-deserved happiness.
“Remember just how challenging her journey has been, how emotional it was for her to lose Jack. Try to reframe your support of one gentleman caller over the other into support for Elizabeth and her journey to find love again,” Erin told Good Housekeeping.
Erin reminded that this isn’t a situation where only one guy gets the girl and the other one leaves town. It seems Nathan isn’t going anywhere, so whatever happens, Team Nathan will be able to watch their favorite star.
