Virgin River Review – Hazards Ahead (2×09)

VIRGIN RIVER - Sarah Dugdale as Lizzie; Grayson Maxwell Gurnsey as Ricky of VIRGIN RIVER - NETFLIX (c) 2020

The penultimate episode of Virgin River Season 2 found Jack in some hot water with Calvin. 

First off, why are there so many people in the woods running around willy nilly? This should not be a normal occurrence for Virgin River. 

Second off, will this Adrian guy play a bigger role or was he simply there so that Mel would find out that Jack’s been visiting Spencer? It’s unclear, and it’s one of the more infuriating things about Virgin River Season 2. 

Jack eventually made it to Spencer’s trailer and realized that something terrible has happened. I still don’t know how he thought he was going to protect Spencer’s family from Calvin or why he was so surprised Calvin figured it out. He clearly underestimates him and doesn’t understand the mess he’s involved in. 

And that’s even after he was knocked out and brought to Calvin’s pot farm for a little face-to-face. 

Jack thinks he’s doing the right thing, but he’s outnumbered here. And if he keeps meddling in Calvin’s business, he’s going to get himself killed. At this point, he has to start thinking about his children, Charmaine, and even Mel before making these reckless decisions. 

I’m still holding out hope that Brady is playing some long game to bring Calvin down. I don’t think he killed Spencer and instead, helped him get out of town. That may just be my wishful thinking, but I just don’t see him as the kind of person to kill another just because the gig guaranteed him money. 

Jack needs to be better at answering his phone. I swear, Mel could’ve put herself in real danger trying to find him! 

Thankfully, it didn’t come to that, and instead, she realized just how much she cares about him. Sometimes, we don’t realize how much we love someone until they’re almost taken from us. Of course, she’s already lost one man she loves, and she was letting fear get in the way of finding love again. But almost losing Jack showed her that her feelings are deep and true. 

Maybe this will finally be the push that Mel needs to appreciate what she has now. After all, it helped her finally come clean about her feelings and tell Jack that she loves him! 

Of course, it helped that Charmaine finally let go of the fairytale that she’s been spinning about her life with Jack. She finally realized that waiting for Jack to feel something for her would just mean that she’d be with a man who didn’t love her. No one deserves that. 

They can still respect each other and be good co-parents to the twins. And without unrealistic expectations, I think it’ll allow them to have a much better relationship. 

That is if Charmaine doesn’t take the kids to Portland. It’s one thing to think about your family and security, it’s another to contemplate a big move without even telling the baby daddy, who has be supportive through the whole process. It almost seemed like she was doing it out of a spite, which is not a good look. 

Charmaine has to put herself first, but she also has to consider that Jack is involved in this too and has a say in what happens to his children. 

And Mel made a great point — Charmaine would want to know if the roles were reversed. Keeping this from Jack isn’t fair. 

Hope and Doc… I’m just out of words here. 

I don’t necessarily understand why Doc met up with Muriel in Seattle. Did he really go for a medical conference? Did he simply want to have a nice lunch date while he was out there? Does he think they could be friends?

Did he not think Hope would jump to conclusions? His judgment was so very questionable here. 

As was the decision to re-propose to Hope. They’ve only just begun seeing each other, despite being married for years, and it was pretty dramatic to get Hope on board with being out in the open with their relationship. 

They had a massive fight about Hope’s gossip, so what made him think that plopping down on one knee — even if it was uber romantic — was a good idea?

And Hope, man, she simply cannot just have a conversation without throwing fits and accusing people. Instead of playing Doc the voicemail, why couldn’t she simply ask him why he met up with Muriel and see what he said first?

Preacher seems to have caught a lucky break in Wes’ disappearance. While they may have found the car, the Sheriff hasn’t connected Wes to Paige. And apparently, his partner flipped on him, so Wes is now being revealed for the monster that he was. Technically, this means that if they were to launch an investigation, Paige’s self-defense explanation would hold up in court. 

The Sheriff said they wouldn’t be pursuing it any further because they don’t have the manpower, so again, it seemed like great news for everyone involved except for the fact that Preacher saw Wes walk into his bar! Is Preacher losing it? Does Wes have a twin? If the latter is the case, that would prove to be very messy for Preacher. 

Maybe Preacher should just take the job offer in San Francisco and leave all of this behind him! Though, I still don’t trust Jamie. Why is she hanging around this small town for so long? Why is she so determined to get Preacher to leave?

And then there’s Ricky and Lizzie, who gave into temptation and enjoyed their first time together. They were being safe, which is good news, but the bad news is that they were terrible at sneaking around. 

Connie came home earlier and found Ricky walking around the house in boxers. Yikes.

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.
