When Calls the Heart - Phone Rings and Heart Strings
Four months have passed since the birth of baby Jack Thornton. Motherhood is a lot of work for Elizabeth, but it is also filled with so much joy. Like his father, Jack is loved by all the ladies and all the men enjoy being his friend. Elizabeth is now faced with returning to work and secures the help of her friends to assist her in taking care of baby Jack as he isn’t the only child that depends on her.
Abigail shares with Elizabeth that the first telephone will be installed in Hope Valley. Rosemary plans to have the town band on hand to celebrate the first call made. Ned works to connect the telephone switchboard in time for the call.
Leland runs into Tom, the owner of the town’s saloon. He’s been out of town for a while because of family issues. Lee shares that the happiest people are those who put family first and Tom is touched by his words. Over at the school, Elizabeth is having the students create their own telephone by using a tin can and fishing line. Abigail and Bill talk about the telephone coming to town and Bill is hesitant for this change. Meanwhile, Ned bumps his head while trying to connect the switchboard wires and Carson and Faith help him with a bandage.
The town gathers and the band plays as they wait for the first ring of the telephone. Unfortunately, it never happens. Abigail sends word that they will need to get a telephone representative to come to town to help set it up, and the first call is now delayed. Jesse shares with Clara that he bought a parcel of land and he hopes to build a home for them in the future on it.
