What will it take for Mel and Jack to get a moment of happiness around here?

The Virgin River Season 2 finale gave fans everything they wanted in terms of the Mel and Jack relationship before ripping it all away.

After Mel told Jack she loved him, the two decided that it was time that they pursued a relationship. 

And, of course, that meant a lot happy scenes between the couple, which, in TV land can only mean one thing — something terrible is about to happen.

We were all just as naive as Jack when we thought that messing with Calvin and his business would be without real consequences. 

In the final scene of the episode, Mel found Jack bleeding out behind the bar after being shot, likely by Calvin or one of his men. 

While he was losing a lot of blood, I can’t imagine that the show will willingly kill off Jack-freaking-Sheridan or force Mel to deal with the death of yet another man she allowed herself to love. 

But it hits too close to home, and the timing couldn’t have been worse either. Throughout most of the second season, Mel refused to pursue a relationship with Jack because she was scared of getting hurt again.And finally, when she mustered up enough courage to let those fears go and opened herself up again, pain and suffering followed! This woman will never be able to trust ever again. 

Of course, this would have happened regardless of whether or not Mel got involved with Jack. And it would’ve hurt just the same because she’s always cared about him deeply. 

The good things is that Mel likely found Jack in time and will be the reason he survives. She couldn’t save Mark, but maybe she’ll be able to save Jack. Jack truly is her second chance. 

This begs the question whether or not Mel’s decision to pay Brady a public visit at Emerald Lumber played a role in the attack on Jack. 

Obviously, we know Calvin has men everywhere, and if they suspected that Mel was there on behalf of Jack, they could have interpreted it as Jack continuing to mess with his business and come after him. 

However, Mel went rogue in an attempt to ease Jack’s guilt and confronted Brady about what really happened to Spencer. 

It was bit irrational of her to just waltz right in there and scream her demands, but at least she was able to confirm what I believed to be the case the whole time — Brady did not kill Spencer. 

Instead, Spencer and his family made it safely out of town and he was cooperating with Mike from the LAPD to bring Calvin down. Who knew that Brady’s shady involvement would eventually be the reason that Calvin’s operation may be shut down?

What do you think? Will Jack survive? What motivated the attack?

Doc and Hope are engaged! Things ended a bit rocky between the couple in the previous episode as Hope accused him of cheating, but turns out, when you don’t jump to conclusions immediately, there are logical explanations. 

Muriel helped Doc connect with a vintage jeweler in Seattle to get Hope’s engagement ring reset. As a thank you, he took her out to lunch. Easy peasy. 

Once Hope realized that she’d overreacted and Doc was willing to go above and beyond to make her a happy woman for the rest of their lives, she said yes to getting re-married and they even talked about a ceremony and reception. 

But again, the joy was short-lived as something is seriously wrong with Doc’s health. 

He tried to tell her what it was but was interrupted by a surprise engagement party by the town, which is cute, but also frustrating for fans because it means we have to wait until season 3 to find out what it is. 

Will a season 3 even happen? It has to now so that we can find out what’s ailing our good doctor and learn about Jack’s fate. And did Doc only propose cause he’s sick? Will Hope rethink the vow renewal once she learns she might have to care for Vernon? 

In B-level storylines, Preacher finally learned that the man who looks just like Wes is his twin, Vince, also a detective, who is hellbent on finding Paige and making her pay for hurting his brother. 

I’d say that I’m concerned with this storyline, however, the fact that Wes was revealed to be a monster makes me think that Paige now has a fighting chance of telling the truth and getting away without being unfairly punished. 

After Jack denied Preacher’s request of becoming a managing partner in the bar, he decided to take the gig in San Francisco. But what does that mean for Paige? Will Preacher actually go through with it? Did seeing Christopher change his mind?

Connie’s whole spiel about Ricky and Lizzie having sex was ridiculous. She knows how “free spirited” Lizzie is and still had the nerve to blame Ricky for “deflowering” her niece. Get a grip, Connie. The fact that these two are almost 18 is even crazier. 

Connie should’ve listened to Lydie, the voice of reason, who seemed to understand that times have changed and young adults are going to have sex. As long as they are being safe, that’s all that mattered.

Charmaine continued to get on everyone’s last nerve. After telling Mel that she was giving up on wanting to make a relationship with Jack work, she basically threw herself at him when he said that he was going to buy a house for the twins that was halfway between the salon and the bar. 

Her attitude changed from sour to completely ecstatic, but she obviously got the wrong idea. Jack simply told her he was getting a house, not that he was getting a house for them all to live in so they could be a family. 

Charmaine continues to live in a fantasy world when Jack has made it abundantly clear that he doesn’t want to be with her romantically. She hears what she wants to hear and then blames him for leading her on. 

When he shot her down for the umpteenth time, she kicked the crazy into high gear and basically told him that he wouldn’t actually be the twins’ father. In short, she’s punishing him for being honest with her. 

This is obviously the worst case scenario because we know that Charmaine loves to spin a good story. If she commits to keeping Jack away from the kids, she’ll do and say anything to win custody.

I said all season long that I wasn’t a fan of Charmaine’s, but now, I’m really not a fan. 

With so many cliffhangers and open-ended storylines, Netflix has to renew Virgin River for a third season! They can’t leave us hanging in the balance like they did with Jack!

What did you think of the season? Let us know in the comments.

Netflix Renews Spanish Drama 'Elite' for Fifth Season Ahead of Season 4 Premiere, Adds News Cast Members

We’ve got some elite news!

Spanish drama Elite has been renewed for a fifth season at Netflix!

The news isn’t all that shocking considering the drama, set in the ritzy private school of Las Encinas in Spain, is one of the streamer’s best performing Spanish originals. 

Not only is the cast incredible, the first few seasons were hinged around an intoxicating murder mystery and plenty of steamy love scenes. 

The renewal comes ahead of the fourth season, which currently doesn’t have a premiere date. In 2020, filming was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic and an outbreak on set.

It’s possible the series will return in the spring/summer of 2021. 

The upcoming season will see a handful of familiar faces including Samu (Itzan Escamilla), Guzman (Miguel Bernardeau), Omar (Omar Ayuso), Rebeca (Claudia Salas), and Ander (Aron Piper) as they were held back due to their shenanigans. The drama will also welcome new students Manu Ríos , Carla Díaz , Martina Cariddi and Pol Granch to shake things up. 

Deadline also reports that the fifth season has added Argentinan actress Valentina Zenere (Soy Luna) and Brazilan actor André Lamoglia (Juacas) to its cast.
