The Heartland television series is one of the simpler ones that have ever been produced since it tells a pleasant and cozy story that helps us unwind and diverts our attention from the stresses of everyday life. On the other hand, the showrunners of the series may occasionally shock us with unexpected occurrences that are woven into the narrative arc of the series. In this post, we’re going to take a look at some of the most shocking Heartland plot twists that have ever occurred. Let’s dive in.
The Wedding of Tim and Jessica is One of the Most Astonishing Turns of Events in the Entire History of Heartland
One of the most unexpected turns of events in the history of Heartland was when Tim and Jessica decided to get married. Some of Tim’s admirers were under the impression that he would never find happiness because of his turbulent history. In point of fact, after the death of the woman who was the mother of his children and the love of his life, Marion, he had no intention of ever marrying again. In spite of this, he has been honest with Jessica about his desire to put on a wedding band for the very first time since the passing of Marion. On the other hand, Jessica at first rejected the idea of having a celebration, but later she changed her mind and decided that a simple ceremony attended by close friends and family would be satisfactory. And thus it came to pass that the couple ultimately wed in Episode 6 of Season 15.
The Process of Adopting Georgie
In Season 6, Georgie joined the cast of Heartland. After losing both of her parents when she was three years old, she was a difficult and defiant girl who bounced about from foster home to foster home. The viewers did not believe that she would be able to adjust to life at Heartland Ranch and get along well with the others who lived there because of her fiery attitude.
As a result, it came as a surprise to us when we watched Season 6, Episode 10 and learned that Lou and Peter had adopted her and that Georgie truly loved Heartland and accepted her new adoptive parents as if they were her biological parents.
The End of Ty
However, Ty’s passing is without a doubt one of the most unexpected turns of events that has ever taken place in Heartland. The decision to kill off a fan-favorite character on Heartland was not only startling but also extremely upsetting for the audience. In spite of the fact that he was shot by a hunter towards the conclusion of Season 13, he had surgery, leading us to assume that he would be okay in the end.
Despite this, Ty Borden passed away in the first episode of Season 14 due to complications arising from deep vein thrombosis. His passing was unquestionably the most heartbreaking thing that happened to Amy, and it was a major factor in the decision of many Heartland viewers to discontinue following the series.
The Departure of Mallory
Mallory’s exit from Heartland came as a shock to many viewers and left them feeling upset, as she was one of the most beloved characters in the series, despite the fact that she did not play a primary role. As you surely recall, she appeared in the first season of Heartland and played the role of the Heartland family’s kind next-door neighbor. However, she quit the show after the seventh season so that she and her partner, Jake Anderson, could move to Paris.
In point of fact, the reason Mallory departed Heartland was due to the fact that the actress who plays Mallory, Jessica Amlee, made the decision to quit the show, stating that she “wanted to stretch myself and see what I’m made of.” I finally had the feeling that I had a handle on Mallory. I felt like I needed to push myself in different ways,” she explained.
Mallory made a return appearance in two episodes during Season 10, and in Episode 14, she tied the knot with her longtime boyfriend Jake.
In spite of the fact that Lou and Peter are one of our favorite couples on Heartland, they made the awful decision to sign divorce papers during Season 10. Since the eighth season, when they first started having challenges in their relationship, things have changed for them, but we have never stopped believing that the two of them will be able to find a way to work through their problems. However, Lou’s separation from Peter following Ty’s passing was the event that hurt us the most.
The End of Lou and Mitch’s Relationship
Soon after Lou and Peter’s separation, Lou started a relationship with Mitch, who worked on the ranch. Their connection endures through a few different seasons despite the ups and downs that it experiences. They showed us that they were serious about their relationship by purchasing a ranch together in season 13, and then becoming engaged in season 14, which led us to hope that they would eventually get married.
However, during the tenth episode of Season 14, Lou made the unexpected discovery that her love for Peter were far from ended. As a result, the couple decided to take a break from their relationship.
