Well, last week CBC broadcast the Season Premiere of Heartland's 5th Season and this Sunday the follow up episode --Something in the Night-- will air at the usual time of 7:00pm across Canada (7:30pm in Newfoundland).
This new episode is written by David Preston and directed by John Fawcett, and it'll be the episode where you finally get to meet the animal actor (known in a lot of production tweets this past summer) as "Elvis"!
So here's an idea of what you can expect this Sunday on Heartland...
When Tim is coerced to go with Jack on a secret mission Amy is left back at Heartland with Janice to get a young race horse (Cisco) ready for his maiden run. Unfortunately, Amy and Janice butt heads (surprise!) over their opposing methods for training the young racehorse. On the road, Jack forces Tim to talk to Miranda and learns why she doesn't want Shane to have anything to do with Tim, or Heartland for that matter. Meanwhile, Ty's big plans for a special dinner date with Amy are foiled by troublemakers. In the midst of all of this, Mallory is down on love.
I know a lot of you are wondering why Lou and the new baby weren't in the Season Premiere. I have to inform you that neither are in this episode either...
In the storyline, Lou and Peter are visiting Peter's parents, showing them their new granddaughter.
The truth is - when the first episodes were being written, Michelle Morgan had not yet given birth to her own daughter, so it was decided to not include Lou in the first block (2 episodes) of filming, so Michelle wouldn't have to rush back to work immediately after having her daughter.
But be patient for just a little bit longer, 'cause in a week you will get to see the baby, you'll learn her name (Yay! - no more calling her "Baby X" or "Mystery Baby" on Twitter) and not only will you get to meet Peter's parents, but something everyone wants to have happen will finally take place.
However, that's all in Episode 503. This Sunday is Episode 502, and it also has a lot going on in it. I'm betting you are all going to like it. I know some of you will really like the scene the last photo on this post is from (heh heh...)
So do enjoy the new episode this Sunday, and please come back here and post your comments after you've seen it. The writers, producers, cast and crew love reading what you think of each episode!
