‘Virgin River’ season 5 ends with bombshell baby reveals and an unexpected return from the dead — here’s how it all went down

“Virgin River” season four ended with a lot of chaos.

Jack (Martin Henderson) and Mel (Alexandra Breckenridge) found a pregnant Charmaine (Lauren Hammersley) collapsed on her floor. Charmaine then confessed to Jack that he’s not the father of her unborn twin sons, as she’d
Meanwhile, Jack and Mel, who were simultaneously expecting their own baby together and also engaged to be married, were facing their own drama. Worried about the health of her pregnancy after previously experiencing a trial, Mel resigned from her job at the clinic. That decision leaves Doc’s (Tim Matheson) medical practice in a bind while he was also trying to get his wife, Mayor Hope McCrea (Annette O’Toole), to come to terms with the traumatic brain injury she sustained after a car accident.

To top it all off, Preacher (Colin Lawrence) and Paige (Lexa Doig) ended the season four finale in a dramatic confrontation with Vince (Steve Bacic), the twin brother of Paige’s abusive late husband Wes (also played by Bacic).

 

“Virgin River” season 5 wraps up some of that drama, but introduces even more. Here’s everything you need to know about how the new season ends before the show returns with additional holiday episodes on November 30.

Who is the father of Charmaine’s babies?

 

Charmaine is healthy and remains pregnant throughout season five of “Virgin River,” but the paternity of her twin boys remains in question. What human is such a monster that Charmaine would rather lie to Jack than face the reality of her babies’ DNA?

She doesn’t have the best track record with men. Her husband Todd’s (Patrick Sabongui) mysterious charge to their credit card bill is the reason for her season four panic. Plus, during their relationship, Jack was never emotionally available to her.

As it turns out, the twins’ father is Calvin (David Cubitt) — Virgin River’s most notorious villain, who was presumed dead. It was previously implied that Calvin, the leader of a local drug operation, had died in a boat explosion apparently orchestrated by Melissa (Barbara Pollard), who took over the operation. But it’s revealed that he’s alive on the season five finale, and he tells Charmaine he wants a relationship with his kids.

Do Mel and Jack have their baby on ‘Virgin River’ season 5?

Mel is pregnant and newly engaged when season five of “Virgin River” picks up, but tragedy strikes by mid-season. She lost the baby right after a camping trip with Jack and right before a wildfire spreads to Virgin River.

She’s devastated after her second pregnancy loss, but by the end of the season, she and Jack have decided to buy Lily’s (Lynda Boyd) farmland from her daughters after her death. They have plans to build a home and a family by any means and are even considering adoption.

Do Lizzie and Denny get back together?

Lizzie (Sarah Dugdale) and Doc’s newfound grandson Denny (Kai Bradbury) hit a rough patch at the end of “Virgin River” season four when he revealed that he has Huntington’s disease, which is fatal.

They get back together while Lizzie is working as Hope’s health aide (and eventual mayoral assistant). Lizzie plans to stay in Virgin River with Denny after they survive the wildfires together, despite her mother’s protests. At the carnival on the season five finale, Lizzie tells Denny she thinks she’s pregnant right after he reveals that he’s changed his mind and wants to leave Virgin River to go to med school after all.
