The first episode of the new season was called “In Like a Lion.” The second episode is called “Out Like a Lamb.”

The description reads:

Hope Valley elects a new mayor. Lucas and Elizabeth try to find the “little moments” in their relationship. Elizabeth offers to help Nathan with his horse after the hit-and-run, but it’s newcomer, Mei, who connects with Newton. 

The description reveals some fascinating details about the new season. First, the mayoral campaign isn’t going to be a major storyline this season like I thought it would be. Instead, the election is already taking place in the second episode. I had actually looked forward to seeing the election play a bigger role this season, perhaps with more funny moments involving Mike Hickam as he runs. So I’m a little disappointed, but also believe it will be interesting to see whoever is elected navigate the role of being Hope Valley’s new mayor, with all the responsibilities that come with it.

We also learn that Mei Sou is developing another connection with Nathan by bonding with his horse after his accident last week.

Along with the official press release, the series also released a cast list for episode 2.

Press Release

The cast list for episode 2 doesn’t reveal any major surprises. Jerome Smith (Dean Paul Gibson) will be back. Several children will be in the episode, and Hyland Goodrich will be back as Little Jack. For some reason, the Taylor twins are on the cast list for this episode and episode 1, but they didn’t actually appear in last week’s episode. They aren’t on the cast list for episode 3.

Here are photos for the second episode.

One photo features Fiona (Kayla Wallace). In episode 1 we learned that she had dropped out of the mayoral race.

Another photo features a closeup of Faith (Andrea Brooks), who’s now running the infirmary on her own.

Two photos show Mei Sou (Amanda Wong) bonding with Nathan’s horse, Newton, while he’s recovering from his injuries.

And apparently, Elizabeth witnesses how well she and the horse are getting along. She’ll probably be happy to see this.

Faith looks like she’s dealing with something serious in this official photo from the new episode.

We also see Lucas (Chris McNally) holding a mysterious white envelope in the infirmary.

In an interview with Sharon Norton, Brooks talked a bit about the envelope.

She said, “I haven’t seen this photo… I can say that Faith and Lucas do have a scene, there are many, but there’s one in particular between the two of them this year that involves some encouragement. I imagine that’s probably where that photo’s from but I can’t say for sure.”

There are also several photos after the election, when Ned and Florence are about to announce who won.

Everyone’s waiting eagerly for the news.

Both Lee and Bill are running, and they seem pretty nervous but supportive of each other.

The whole town is waiting for the announcement.

Florence (Loretta Walsh) gets her own photo for this episode.
