WCTH spoilers reveal that fans have fallen in love with the kids who played Little Jack in seasons 6 through 8. After Jack Thornton (Daniel Lissing) died, Elizabeth had to try and go on, especially since she would have a baby boy to take care of. Children being aged up in soaps and TV shows is pretty common. So, it was only a matter of time before an older child actor would replace Lincoln and Gunnar’s role.

Fans will likely see some scenes with Lucas Bouchard (Chris McNally) and Little Jack. It will be easier to see how Lucas bonds with Elizabeth’s son. While not all fans are on board with Elizabeth choosing Lucas over Nathan Grant (Kevin McGarry), it should still be interesting to find out what happens when the show returns.
After the season 8 finale, Krakow expressed her excitement about the children coming back into focus on the show. At that time, she told ET,
“I’m very excited to get the kids back on the show and in a bigger capacity. I am really excited about this, because we have, somehow, avoided bringing Lucas into Elizabeth’s space… I think it’s setting us up well, there’s just all of this new territory to explore in season 9.”
