This episode had so many great moments. I did enjoy Faith Carter in Season 2 when she met Jack while caring for his brother. She is sweet girl and she has a heart of gold. I was sad that she had to choose between her fiancé and her work. And Abigail has some sweet moments with Cody who she "adopted." He is upset that some of the kids keep telling him that she is not his mother. She says to him, "I need you just as much as you need me." I'll be interested to see how all these couple relationships grow. Hope Valley has such a rich group of people and stories. I look forward to more adventures and intrigues from Hope Valley.
