When Calls the Heart: The Christmas Wishing Tree
When it’s time for the parade to start, Abigail announces that she has made Jack and Elizabeth this year’s grand marshals. Abigail is shocked to see Santa arrive in the parade on his sleigh. Cody tells his mom that taking her to the North Pole was the last unchecked item on Peter’s to-do list, and he made it his responsibility to fulfill it. Abigail thanks Cody with a giant hug. Meanwhile, Jesse presents Clara with beautiful socks that Dottie gave to him. The band gets ready to play and the parade begins down the street as people wave Christmas flags. Bill even brings Henry out of jail to enjoy the festivities.
Later that evening, Abigail sneaks Christmas Eve dinner to Henry in prison. She also tells Henry that she will not let the prison know about Henry’s little escapade, and he appreciates it. She thanks him for his extreme gesture of bringing Becky home for the holidays. She tells him that because of Henry’s actions, it will be a merry Christmas.
Later that evening, Becky and Cody present Abigail with her Christmas present: a framed photo of the two of them, along with another framed picture of Peter, as a way to bring all her children together.
Jack and Elizabeth enjoy their last dinner before Jack has to go back to duty. They also exchange presents with one another. Elizabeth gives Jack a hand-stitched pillow with the message, “love is patient, love is kind.” Jack gives Elizabeth his grandparents’ wedding rings, with an inscription that reads, “love is patient, love is kind.” She tells Jack she will be waiting for him to return. The two take one last stroll to the wishing tree, where they notice there is one wish left to grant. It just reads, “hope.”
Bill interrupts the moment and delivers Jack a telegram: due to a major blizzard, all roads are closed and Jack gets to stay in Hope Valley for another week! Abigail points out that the tree is definitely magical and the two head back home to get ready to celebrate Christmas. Meanwhile, back at the café, Bill hangs up the ornament that reads “hope” on the patio.
