The new season has just begun, but Hearties have only received a glimpse of how it will all unfold.

Last Sunday’s season eight premiere of When Calls the Heart got viewers reacquainted with the residents of Hope Valley. Rosemary convinced Lee to cut their South American trip short to return home, and Faith also reappeared following medical school — but not by way of the stagecoach, rather from a ride with a handsome, playful cowboy, which put Carson on edge just a touch! It was obvious that newlyweds Clara and Jesse are experiencing issues, and Fiona set out on a new business venture with plans to run the barbershop.
