As you all know, this week's episode of Heartland is a repeat of episode 402 - "What Dreams may Become" because of the NHL All-Star game, which is also airing this Sunday. But don't despair, Heartland fans! I've got lots to say to you, including new photos, a reminder about Graham and Jessica's cast appearance, upcoming contests, games, and more! Click through to the blog post for everything!
Coming off of the season premiere (where we'd finally seen the last of Blair... NOT!!!) Episode 402 - "What Dreams May Become," written by Ken Craw and directed by Grant Harvey, had Amy discovering that Nick Harwell's problems with his polo ponies, Lou's life in Dubai and Tim's relationship with his jockey were not what they appeared to be. It marked the return of the oh-so-dreamy Nick Harwell (played by returning guest star Stephen Amell) who we hadn't seen since episode 206. We also met Janice (Miranda Frigon) for the first time, as Lightning Dexter's jockey - and Tim's girlfriend...
It's a great episode, so I hope you enjoy it the second time around! I've put some previously unseen pictures at the bottom of this post for you to check out as well!
The Upcoming Cast Appearence
Next, an important reminder: If you are in or near Vancouver or Burnaby this Saturday, January 29th, Graham Wardle and Jessica Amlee will be appearing with a whole bunch of stars from CBC Television, Radio, and News at Metropolis at Metrotown Mall as part of CBC LIVE.
Starting at 3:00pm, they'll be meeting fans and signing autographs along with the stars of CBC's 18 to Life, Republic of Doyle, Little Mosque on the Prairie and InSecurity!
In case there are huge crowds, 100 wristbands will be given out at the location in the mall (you'll be able to find it) beginning at 12:00 noon - wristband wearers will be guaranteed an autograph, no matter how long it takes. Anyone without a wristband will have to take their chances.
So once again, here are the details:
WHERE: Grand Court at Metropolis at Metrotown, 4700 Kingsway, Burnaby
WHEN: Saturday January 29th. The full day begins at 11am - Graham and Jessica arrive at 3:00pm. Wristbands will be available on a first-come first-serve basis beginning at 12:00 noon.

New treats in the "Extras" section of the site
Our continuing web series "On Set with Jessica Amlee", um... continues. Episode 2 (a look at what Heartland's sound expert, Ron Osiowy, does) is up if you haven't seen it yet, and #3 will go up on Monday!
Plus, I'll have something BRAND NEW on the Extras page as well! What I hope will be only the first of a few little Heartland games! Come back tomorrow (Friday January 28th) to check it out!
Lastly, to also help tide you over during the long, agonizing two weeks between now and the next new season 4 episode, there will be a new contest launching sometime very soon - one here on the site as well as a separate one on Facebook (which will be open to all Facebook fans, internationally), so make sure you keep checking the blog!
Well, that's all for today! Until next time...
