My Heart Will Go On


Back in the Mayor’s office, both Henry and Ray tell Mr. Stoneman they disapprove of Elizabeth’s tutoring. When Mr. Stoneman defends Elizabeth, Henry and Ray both tell the teacher he can easily be replaced.

The next morning at breakfast, Cody tells Abigail how much he misses Elizabeth as his teacher. He later gets all the students together to write positive letters about Elizabeth to send to her. Later on, Elizabeth tells Abigail she will fight to get her job back, no matter how long it takes. Cody still wants Elizabeth to read all the letters they wrote.

Meanwhile, Jack is talking to Lee about wanting to go back to the Northern territory to patrol. The only piece of advice that Lee can offer is to not listen to anybody else’s advice and tells Jack to do what is right for him.

Back at the house, Jack and Elizabeth are reading her cards when Francine shows up at the door. Together, the two go to the Mayor’s office so Francine call tell her story of how superintendent Mr. Higgins propositioned her back in Union City, the same way that Elizabeth had explained earlier. Abigail also goes to the meeting and tells both Ray and Henry that this should mean Elizabeth gets her job back immediately since she was telling the truth this whole time. Henry says that without proof, they have no way of proving the stories. Francine then offers evidence, explicit letters that Mr. Higgins used to leave at her desk. After carefully examining the letters, Henry reinstates Elizabeth’s teaching position at the school. After the meeting, Elizabeth asks what made Francine change her mind about coming forward. She shows Elizabeth an envelope she received containing a photograph with Elizabeth and all her students, with a note attached that reads, “Bad things happen when good people do nothing.” Elizabeth later finds out that it was Abigail who sent the letter.
