Well, as much fun as Hanley Barn was, it's time to have another new episode of Heartland this Sunday!
We will now pause for the collective "Yay!!!" shouted from rooftops across the country. Click through to the blog post for more pics and some inside information on the episode!
If you're not into horseracing, you might not know that the title of this episode, written by Leila Basen and David Preston, refers to how the horses finish in regards to placing a wager on them to win money. So Win = First (that is pretty obvious, no?), but Place = second place and Show = third place. Now you know.
In this fun episode, directed by John Fawcett, there's a lot going on! First, Tim gets Amy to ride Lightning Dexter in a stakes race when he finds out his girlfriend Janice has taken a jockeying position with another owner (the nerve!) Now why would Janice, played by guest star Miranda Frigon, do that? You're going to have to watch to see how this story unfolds!
Another good reason to watch is to see the continuing adventures of Badger, played by Jack Knight, who rolls into Heartland driving a sweet used car (actually, it's more "used" than "sweet"). Ignorance is bliss, they say, and things seem fine until Ty discovers something about the car that Badger had been blissfully ignorant about.
On the new Mallory triangle front Jake gets a bit of help from Jack, and Mallory is once again torn...
Also, Peter tries to buy his way out of the doghouse with Lou while Caleb buys his way into the poorhouse for Ashley!
In other words, there's a LOT going on in this week's brand new addition to the Heartland saga.
And as reported on Facebook, four of the next five Sundays will have a new episode of Heartland airing across Canada on CBC Television.
So, besides "Win, Place or Show" this Sunday, watch for a new episode the following two Sundays (on November 14 and November 21) and then on December 5.
Normally that would be the last of Heartland until January, but remember to mark your calenders again for Sunday December 12 at 8:00pm, when the 2-hour "A Heartland Christmas" premieres.
But that's all down the road a bit. Right now let's all make plans to watch "Win, Place or Show," this Sunday at 7:00pm (7:30pm in Newfoundland.)
And remember (Blog Whisperer public service announcement time), because it's the first Sunday in November, if you are in most places in North America, set your clocks back 1 hour when you go to bed Saturday night because - sadly - Daylight Savings Time goes into time clock hibernation this weekend (until March 13). The good news is you get an extra hour to sleep this weekend. The bad news is it gets darker earlier beginning Sunday.
Good thing we have a new episode of Heartland to get you through the trauma!
Have a great weekend, Heartland fans, and let us all know what you think of "Win, Place or Show."
