WCTH season 9 spoilers reveal that after what seemed like forever, Elizabeth finally made her choice.

When Calls The Heart Season 9 Spoilers – The ‘Harder Path’
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.
“I really feel a big responsibility to give the Hearties Hope Valley for as many seasons as possible, and we believe that decision is going to make that a possibility. So we took the harder path; there’s no doubt about that.”

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. He really believes that Lucas and Elizabeth’s journey will give the show “new life” and keep the storytelling “fresh.” Having her paired with another mountie might inadvertently cause some recycled storylines. That is something that all scriptwriters and show bosses want to avoid.
“… because we have not gone down that road before. We feel this will breathe some new life into the show, keep us telling fresh and robust and vibrant stories…”

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.
