"When Calls the Heart"
Season Premiere Sunday, February 19 at 9PM ET/PT on Hallmark Channel
In “When Calls the Heart’s” season four premiere, “Words from the Heart,” Abigail (Lori Loughlin) takes on her duties as mayor and it seems nearly everyone in Hope Valley wants her attention. First order of official town business comes from Ray Wyatt (Jeremy Guilbaut) with National Pacific Railroad, who proposes a new route he claims will bring business and prosperity to the area. This idea isn’t met with enthusiasm by all residents and it’s up to Abigail to determine the course of action that’s best for the town while not sacrificing the individual interests of its people.
The railroad asks Bill (Jack Wagner) to head its security team leaving him to carefully consider the offer. Meanwhile, in an effort to better integrate Elizabeth’s (Erin Krakow) new students from the settlement with the Hope Valley children, Jack (Daniel Lissing) proposes a friendly competition in the form of a baseball game so he and Elizabeth divide the kids into teams with each of them serving as coach. When it’s time to hit the field, the whole town turns out for the game and one of the new children becomes a hero thanks to Elizabeth’s encouragement to overcome his fear.
