Heartland’s “epic episode” tonight teased


By Diane Wild of TV, eh?

Some of the Heartland cast were on hand at CBC Vancouver’s Open House and Food Bank Day on Friday, where more than $500,000 was raised for local food banks.

I spoke to Lower Mainland natives Graham Wardle (Ty), Jessica Amlee (Mallory) and Alisha Newton (Georgie) and will have more on our discussion in the new year. But tonight is a big episode. How big? Well, I don’t know, really, but I can guess. If you’re a regular viewer of Heartland you probably can — and have — too. The official blog is hyping this episode as “EPIC.” What could it be, what could it be? Hmm. Apropos of nothing, Ty and Amy sure have been dating for a while, haven’t they?

The cast revealed no actual spoilers, but we talked around the apparently epic episode and its epic scene. I mentioned that I had a feeling people were probably correct in their guessing.

“Probably,” Wardle sort-of confirmed.

“There’s a significant event that happens and while we were shooting the scene of this event, it was supposed to be a beautiful sunset but it was thunder and lightening,” said Wardle. “When you see it you won’t know all these things. We had to use special camera tricks to make it seem the opposite of what it was.”
