Canada: NEW episode Sunday, Feb 19

Posted on Feb 16, 2017

Many of Heartland's stories take more than one episode to tell. This Sunday we continue, and conclude, the Mallory (guest star Jessica Amlee) and Jake storyline. But of course, you suspected that when you saw the return of Jake (guest star Jake Church) in the last scene of last Sunday's episode. As always on Heartland, there is so much more going on. Please read on...

This week's upcoming episode is titled, "Written in the Stars," and was directed by Gail Harvey from a script by Mark Haroun. You can catch it in three days when CBC Television premieres it on Sunday, February 19 at 7:00pm / 7:30NT.

So what happens? Jake’s unexpected arrival at Heartland forces Mallory to admit to Amy and Jack the real reason she came back to Heartland. Meanwhile, Georgie tries to move on after her break up with Adam by throwing herself into helping Amy with an underperforming cutting horse which Scott brings to Heartland. And Lou and Mitch struggle to find the right time to tell the family about their relationship.

This is a lovely episode and one I'm sure many of you are going to remember as one of your season 10 favourites. I trust you can watch it this Sunday. And just so you get a bit more of a taste of what to expect, I've included 11 (!) photos with this blog.

Now before I sign off with a 'mark your calendar' reminder I have three housekeeping items I would like to address, all of which you might want to have that calendar for.

1) This Sunday is episode 1014 - "Written in the Stars." The next new episode - "Forest for the Trees," episode 1015, will premiere on CBC in two Sundays' time, on March 5. The final three episodes will air on the following three Sundays, on March 12 (1016), March 19 (1017) and the season finale - 1018 - will air on March 26. That's seven new episodes out of eight consecutive Sundays. It's going to be a great end to the tenth season of Heartland and I hope you will join us for all of them.

2) As part of the Academy of Canadian Cinema & Television's Canadian Screen Week, the ACCT will host a public event day on March 11. It will take place during the day in downtown Toronto and many Canadian programs are going to have stars from their series present to meet fans, sign autographs, take selfies and have a fun time. Heartland stars who have been at these in previous years have had a blast and I'm certain it will be the same this year as Heartland's Georgie and Jade - Alisha Newton and Madison Cheeatow - will be there in person to greet fans who show up. Details will follow in subsequent blogs. Watch for it.

3) Last week I introduced you to hours of Heartland songs streaming on CBC Music. Well, in next week's blog your favourite Blog Whisperer is going to have a little giveaway to Canadians who listen to the songs on the streaming service. I figure since I won't be writing about a new episode I might as well have some other interesting things to talk about, so why not a giveaway? I'll also have some other news that Heartland fans are going to want to read.

So now - that's it for me. Let's have a safe weekend as we struggle through another Canadian winter. This past week it was Nova Scotia's turn as they were hit with a massive snowstorm. I hope everyone out in the Atlantic provinces is hanging in there. It looks like you'll be getting more sunshine starting tomorrow.

So let's all enjoy a new Heartland episode this Sunday evening and see what Mallory and Jake are up to. I'm pretty sure you'll all enjoy it.

I'll be back next Thursday. Until then I remain, as always, obediently yours.
