With All My Heart

As a storm swirls into Hope Valley, Elizabeth heads into the jail to talk to Jack. Finding only Jack’s dog Rip, she decides instead to leave a note. Thunder rumbles in the distance, frightening the poor hound. Elizabeth gives him a passing glance and continues to compose her note to Jack. Unbeknownst to Elizabeth, she’s left the jail door wide open and Rip, who’s terrified of thunder, takes the opportunity to slip out.

As the storm clouds churn, Henry Gowen and Dottie Ramsey make their way through town. As they talk, a familiar voice approaches calls out to Henry. Surprised, Henry sees the voice belongs to Nora Avery. Frantically she tells Gowen that Bill is quite taken with Abigail. Gowen responds, saying, “I'm sorry I had to be the one to tell you.” She insists that despite Bill’s recalcitrance, she will stay in Hope Valley until he changes his mind. She then mentions that she doesn’t have much money for the hotel. Surprisingly Henry offers to find her a place to stay in town. As the two walk off, Nora thanks him for his kindnesses through the years, to which Henry replies that he will always be kind to her.

As the storm grows closer Jack nervously calls for Rip. Elizabeth approaches, saying she saw Rip when she was in the jail earlier. Putting two and two together, Jack now suspects Rip ran off while Elizabeth was in the jail. Through Elizabeth’s apologies Jack gathers himself and heads off to Rip’s hiding place in the abandoned mine.
