The hit TV series When Calls the Heart is finally returning to Hallmark on Sunday night, February 23, 2020. If you just can’t wait until the episode premieres, here’s a look at some photos, videos, and cast spoilers that you can expect.
This article will have spoilers for Episode 1 of Season 7, along with possible minor spoilers beyond Episode 1 based on behind-the-scenes photos and more.
Episode 1 Is Called ‘A Moving Picture’
Season 7 Episode 1 is called “A Moving Picture.” The official description reads: “Lucas gives Elizabeth writing advice that causes her to search for new inspiration. Rosemary and Lee plan a vacation. Faith returns home with a dilemma that may force her to part ways from Carson. Gowen is interviewed for a business magazine.”
Interestingly, Parade shared that Episode 1 begins two years after the Season 6 finale. So that cliffhanger I guess still isn’t resolved. Elizabeth is still single.
According to Parade, the “dilemma” Faith is facing is a job offer that would force her to leave Hope Valley if she accepted it.
Faith wasn’t in a lot of Season 6 because she left to care for her sick dad. There was some concern that the actress, Andrew Brooks, was leaving the show, which Heavy discussed here. But that didn’t end up being the case, and it looks like Brooks is here to stay.
Brooks is very busy. In addition to starring on When Calls the Heart, she also stars on Supergirl. Her character had a pretty big role on the show for this current season.
As for Elizabeth (Erin Krakow), it sounds like she goes to Lucas for advice about her writing and he gives her an honest and blunt critique. But she’s also still exploring possibilities with Nathan too, not ready to make a choice.
Here’s a sneak peak shared by Parade for Episode 1.
According to Parade, a journalist will be visiting Hope Valley in Episode 1 and this journalist will be focusing on the oil business and trying to dig up dirt on Henry Gowen.
Meanwhile, a work conflict will be causing problems for Rosemary and Lee’s vacation, Parade shared.
