When Calls the Heart Christmas
Season 4 - Episode 1
It’s Christmas time in Hope Valley, and Elizabeth is reflecting on the last three years in her journal. She has taken on the Christmas Committee and all the responsibilities that come with it. Of course, there are some residents that aren’t so confident she can handle the responsibility, especially since this was a role once occupied by Rosemary.
Back in the classroom, Elizabeth prepares her students for the Christmas play. After class, she and Jack take a romantic stroll through the forest to pick out the perfect Christmas tree. While there, they are visited by a dog who leads them to the perfect tree. Later on, the two decorate the tree and Jack asks her to accompany him to the Mountie Christmas Ball. When it comes to finding the perfect gown for the dance, Elizabeth finds an unlikely volunteer: Rosemary!
Abigail pays Henry a visit and tells him some news he does not want to hear: he cannot go back to being mayor of Hope Valley because of the ongoing federal investigation into his activities as mayor. An angry Henry accuses Abigail of being happy with the news and refuses to help her with any mayoral questions she has. Later on, she asks Bill to help out in the bakery, so she, as head of the town council, can fulfill the duties of substitute mayor.
