This Sunday, on an all new episode of Heartland, Megan Follows returns as Ty's mother, Lily. Read on!
When we last saw Lily, she was off living in Vancouver, she had a job and was surviving bad decisions she had made in the past. These included the men she had fallen in love with - the abusive Wade, who came back to visit Ty earlier this year, and Ty's father Brad, who you may remember from his visit to Heartland in Season 2.
Both men play an important role in Lily's visit, and she has to be very careful how she tells Ty the news she has arrived in person to deliver. As keen as he is to keep mending fences with his mother, this visit is not going to be an easy one for Ty.
Meanwhile, Amy continues to work with Alcatraz and she enlists Lily's help to get the horse to trust people again. And when Lou finds herself without a babysitter, she is forced to take an important client meeting at Heartland.
Once again, Jack is Heartland's rock, and his wisdom and common sense go a long way in easing everyone's minds.
Titled "Fool's Gold," the new episode is written by Mark Haroun and directed by Dean Bennett. You won't want to miss it this Sunday when it airs across Canada on CBC Television.

American Quarter Horses - Heartland's got 'em!
Late last year Amber, along with Heartland's Head Wrangler, John Scott, were interviewed by Tom Moates for America's Horse Magazine, which is a publication for members of the American Quarter Horse Association. Although they don't normally put their stories up online they have graciously agreed to do so, so fans of Heartland can read it! Thanks guys!
The article is quite in depth, and you'll learn things none of us knew. For example, I've written before that Spartan is played primarily by a horse called Stormy, but did you know his real registered name is Top Moon Cuttabar? And that the horse who plays Harley has a registered name of EJ Doc Tivio Frost?
There's that and lots more information to be read in the article in America's Horse Daily, which went up last week. I think you will enjoy it; I did! Read it here - http://americashorsedaily.com/deep-in-the-heartland/ .
So that's it for another week. Next Thursday I'll have some more information for you on the following Sunday's new episode of Heartland, but in the meantime, don't miss Ty's mom's return in three days - Sunday, January 15 at 7:00pm (7:30pm in Newfoundland). It sets the tone for what is going to follow during the rest of this 5th season of Heartland.
I'll be watching; will you?!? :)
Have a great weekend, everyone! Blog Whisperer, signing off...
