Speaking to Charisma News, Bird said that Elizabeth choosing Lucas was definitely the “harder path.” Instead of leaving another mountie love story for Elizabeth, the writers decided to tackle something new.

When Calls the Heart season 9 spoilers reveal that even though it’s the more difficult path, it’s not just about getting more seasons.

While we don’t know exactly what to expect in season 9, Krakow previously said that she would love to see a real romantic and slow courtship. Plus, Jack Thornton, Jr. aka “Little Jack” (Lincoln and Gunnar Taylor) couldn’t be the main focus in season 8. This was due to the rules stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic. Elizabeth isn’t just bringing Lucas into her own life, but that of her young son’s as well. So, how Lucas and Little Jack interact will be very important.

    I still very disappointed, even though I loved WCTH I will not be watching it anymore.

  3. Guest says

    I will never watch again

  4. Guest says

    I also love the fact that Elizabeth chose Lucas. They have so much in common, literature, writing and basic upper class culture. He's romantic and spontaneous…
    just what Elizabeth needs. Nathan acts like a dud…completely inept when it comes to romance.

    I totally agree!

  6. sapphire playz says

    I wish there wasn't such a big gap in time between seasons and I will anxiously be awaiting new episodes!
