So, as faithful followers of this Heartland site can attest, I've been posting something for fans of Canada's favourite family drama every Thursday for a VERY long time.
Some Thursdays - especially the odd one during the past 5 month break from the end of Season 4 until now - I've had to scramble a bit to find things to write about.
But not today!!
Why, you ask? Well, in case you didn't know today is the Thursday before the Sunday that will see Episode 501 - "Finding Freedom," broadcast on television screens right across Canada.
In this exciting 5th Season Premiere, written by Heather Conkie and directed by John Fawcett, Amy is inspired to take her horsemanship to a new level when she works with a professional liberty horse trainer.
She realizes she has to return to her roots when it comes to both her work with horses and her relationship with Ty. Meanwhile, a leaky roof causes Ty to make a big decision that he thinks will help them grow as a couple.
Also in this episode, Tim is having no luck tracking down Miranda and Shane since she dropped the bombshell that Shane is his son... until Shane --on his own-- surprises everyone by just showing up at Heartland. And Mallory entertains the idea of going with the recently-single-again Jake to the Spring Fling. There is however --as you might expect with Mallory-- a "but" attached.
Everything old is new again! It's the Season Premiere of Heartland, and the saga enters its 5th season at the same time you have always watched it - Canada's family hour, at 7:00pm right across Canada, except in Newfoundland, where it will start at 7:30pm.
Enjoy! And as I always ask of you - come back here and write a comment, telling us all what you thought of the new episode!
And while you're at it, go play the brand new Heartland Ranch game on Facebook!
And now, for the very last time this year, because we are now about to start the new season...
Tick... tick... tick...
