1.Episode 1: “A Second Chance”

In the aftermath of last season’s shocking finale, we discover that Jack is not the father of Charmaine’s twins, and she’s been deceiving him and the town. Jack deals with this bombshell by turning to chopping wood, and it’s a sight to behold. Meanwhile, a town council coup led by Jo Ellen’s husband, Nick, seeks to oust Hope as the mayor. We also witness an accidental exposure to fentanyl that threatens Bert’s life, courtesy of Nick’s sister, Melissa, who has some shady dealings in the lumberyard. Melissa now sets her sights on Jack’s glamping business to launder money. And if that’s not enough drama, a goon from Melissa’s camp sends a message to Brady by throwing a rock through Brie’s front door. As if that’s not dramatic enough, Lilly’s daughter, Ava, returns to town and collapses at Jack’s bar. It’s a chaotic return to “peaceful” Virgin River.

The Hottest Goss: Mike’s revelation that Paige and Preacher killed Wes, and his nonchalant response, leaves us shocked. This means Paige and Preacher can be together, but Paige decides to leave Virgin River after everything that’s happened.

The Hottest Goss: Cameron and Muriel’s sweet kiss brings a touch of romance to the town.

9.Episode 9: “Angel’s Peak”

10.Episode 10: “Labor Day”
