Heartland fans have a lot to celebrate. Not only was their favourite TV show renewed for Season 10, but Ty and Amy’s lives are about to take a huge step forward.
Yes, on their first wedding anniversary, Amy announced to Ty that she’s pregnant. (Congratulations to showrunner Heather Conkie and her writing crew for having Cassandra’s pregnancy throw us off the trail.) I assumed Sunday’s season-ender “Resolutions” would deal largely with Lou and Peter’s decision to get back together or not. It did, but Amy and Ty still stole the show from them.
And let’s not forget about Adam and Georgie, who are officially an item. I guess saving each other’s livesâ€”him last week in the sanctuary fire and she this week with the diabetes sugar shotâ€”was enough for Adam to stand up to his father (played by Cracked‘s Dayo Ade) and demand the young couple be given a chance. Seeing them hold hands under the aurora borealis was very sweet.
Meanwhile, Peter’s return to Heartland was bittersweet. Despite his teary confession, a promise and a kiss on the lips with Lou, he’s leaving empty-handed. And, after everything Lou has been through this season, it’s the right call. Yes, it would have been easy to have happy-endings all around relationship-wise by the end of the episode, but Conkie has too much respect for the storyline and I applaud her for that. There are plenty of divorced couples in the real world, and Peter and Lou are determined to be great parents to their daughters. That’s more important than keeping others happy. (I was sad to hear Tim and Casey are on a break, but maybe things will be better next season.)
