‘When Calls the Heart’ is a drama series based on the eponymous novel by Janette Oke and created for television by Michael Landon Jr. The narrative revolves around the life of a young teacher, Elizabeth Thatcher, who is from a sophisticated and high-class family. Soon, she has to give up her elite lifestyle as she gets sent to the small mining town of Coal Valley for a teaching assignment there. Despite facing various issues to get by and get used to the new lifestyle of the village, she still succeeds in making some meaningful connections with a few people and getting herself a new job.
Although the season 8 finale resolves the love triangle of Elizabeth, Nathan, and Lucas, it leaves the other important characters and residents of Hope Valley having to make some big and life-altering decisions of their own in the final episode. The upcoming installment will likely let us know the decisions they make and put an end to all the interpretations and theories about season 9 that are lingering in the air.
