When Calls the Heart Teasers: A Mistake Is Uncovered and an Unexpected Letter Sends One Family Into a Tailspin — Plus, a Season Eight Photo Album
Newcomers arrive, as Hope Valley prepares for graduation day — and there are a few shocking twists.
Before we get into the goodies for the episodes to come, let’s take a moment to congratulate When Calls the Heart for becoming the most-watched original scripted series on ad-supported cable, year-to-date, among total viewers and women 18 and over!
Now hearties, it’s up to you to keep the momentum going. Last Sunday’s episode, many Hope Valley residents rallied around friends and family following a geyser erupting at the oil rig and the drama continues in the next two upcoming shows. Viewers will not only be introduced to another family, and a few relatives that arrive in town, but secrets are revealed and mistakes can no longer be hidden.
First up, in Sunday’s, March 14, installment titled “Welcome to Hope Valley,” after Elizabeth greets the Canfields as they arrive in town, the family settles into their newly purchased home, Gowen’s cabin, and gets acquainted with their surroundings. Will they have any trouble fitting into the close-knit community? We think not! And Lee’s sister and niece show up for a visit (or will it be permanent?), as Nathan is forced to question his own actions. Tune in at 9:00 pm and meet the Canfields in the video promo below — plus, learn what new challenge Elizabeth might face as a teacher.
Then the following week, on Sunday, March 21, at 9 pm, in “What the Heart Wants,” the Jack Thornton School house hosts a graduation, as Lee and Rosemary continue to adjust to having his family in town. The Coulters receive an unexpected letter from Dottie — one that sends them into a tailspin — and Clara uncovers a very big mistake, made by none other than her husband, Jesse.

<p><em>When Calls the Heart</em> <a href="https://soaps.sheknows.com/soaps/news/590745/hallmark-when-calls-the-heart-season-eight-video-elizabeth-nathan-lucas/" target="_blank">returned with season eight</a> on Sunday, February 21. <em>The Bold and the Beautiful</em> and <em>General Hospital</em> alum Jack Wagner returned as Bill and led Hope Valley’s residents into the new chapter.</p>
<p>With Lucas and Nathan having been away, Elizabeth was able to ignore her conflicting feelings for both men. However, when they returned, and made their presence known, she was once again faced with the fact that they were vying for her attention.</p>
<p>Newlyweds Jesse and Clara have had a rocky start. But when Lee and Rosemary presented them with a tandem bike, the young couple was filled with laughter as they rode down the main street of town.</p>
<p>Elizabeth to the rescue! Though Robert tried to impress Allie while riding a horse — one he had no idea how to ride — the horse got spooked and raced off, leaving Elizabeth to rush after him and save the day.</p>
<p>Fiona began a new venture as <a href="https://soaps.sheknows.com/soaps/news/592981/hallmark-when-calls-the-heart-spoilers-helen-arrives-disaster-strikes/" target="_blank">the owner of the town’s barber shop</a>, now called Nichols & Dimes. A few of the men had to be convinced to give her a shot, and as you can see Hickam was right to be worried — and almost left without an ear!</p>
<p>Newcomer Helen arrived on the scene and spent some time with Bill. Not only was she revealed to be Lucas’ mother, but she’s the big-city editor who was assigned to read Elizabeth’s manuscript. </p>
<p>Word came that a geyser erupted at the oil rig. Bill, Lucas and Nathan stood back and watched the drama unfold before them.</p>
<p>The townsfolk were faced with a frightening sight as they watched the goings-on at the oil rig. From the looks of things, they were able to celebrate a small victory amid the madness.</p>
<p>Rosemary and Elizabeth weren’t always this close. Though Rosemary often annoyed Elizabeth, from the moment she arrived in Hope Valley, their bond deepened and Elizabeth was even a Maid of Honor at Rosemary’s wedding. </p>
<p>Season eight introduced viewers to the Canfield family. Elizabeth, as the local school teacher, welcomed the newcomers to Hope Valley.</p>
<p>Lucas smirks as he stands near the table where Elizabeth is seated with Rosemary, Lee and two guests. The guests in question? Lee’s sister and niece, more newcomers to town.</p>
<p>From the look on Lee’s face, the family reunion is filled with a bit of tension. You’ll have that when mixing old relationships with new ones.</p>
<p>It’s graduation day at the Jack Thornton School house! Proud teacher Elizabeth takes some time out to talk to Nathan and his niece Jaeda.</p>
<p>After the festivities Elizabeth had a private conversation with Nathan. He, along with Lucas, is fighting for her heart.</p>
<p>Of course, Lucas wanted his time with Elizabeth as well. It’s all smiles between the two as they catch up.</p>
<p>Lee is taken by surprise when Christopher approaches. Will the new stranger to town have connections that no one realizes?</p>
<p>It’s the town doctor to the rescue! Carson, as always, rushes to tend to a fellow in need.</p>
<p>Lee takes a break from thinking about his extended family. Maybe Allie can help him see the changes that might be ahead where his niece is concerned.</p>
<p>It’s safe to say many are curious about Hope Valley’s newcomer, Christopher. Lucas, for one, has questions.</p>
<p>Hope Valley’s local doctor appears deep in thought. Carson could very well be having lingering feelings about the recent opportunity he was faced with. </p>
<p>Bill has to hold newcomer Christopher back. Trouble is, Lucas is suspicious of the town’s newest resident.</p>
<p>Elizabeth stands next to Angela in the center of Hope Valley. The two will bond as Elizabeth works to teach her new student Braille. </p>
<p>Dr. Carson tends to Henry, who looks very weak. Molly is there as back up and takes his blood pressure.</p>
<p>It’s time for the much-anticipated wedding! Here’s a shot of Fiona leading Florence into some pre-wedding fun. </p>
<p>Rosemary has something to say and calls for everyone’s attention. Lee seems to know what she has on her mind, but Lucas and Elizabeth are eager to hear it too. </p>
<p>Ned, Bill and Lee take some time out for the boys. While Ned’s all smiles, Bill looks a bit conflicted.</p>
<p>Ned and Florence’s wedding day has finally arrived! Bill stands with Ned and Joseph as they await the bride and groom.</p>
<p>Friends and family watch as Ned and Florence make things official. Katie, Lee and Rosemary applaud the newlyweds. </p>
<p>The reception is filled with fun and laughter. Joseph and Minnie make the most of the moment by sharing a dance.</p>
<p>It’s just another day at the barber shop. Fiona and Faith take some time out for girl talk.</p>
<p>The residents of Hope Valley become worried when one of their own goes missing. Nathan and the others form a search party in hopes of finding their lost friend.</p>
<p>Two familiar faces stand in the middle of Hope Valley. Joe takes a moment to chat with Lee.</p>
<p>Something has really caught Faith’s attention. Whatever she’s reading is clearly a good thing and making her smile.</p>
