Heartland: Adam, awkwardness and announcements

Well, I certainly didn’t see the breakup between Georgie and Adam coming at the end of last week’s episode, did you? I mean, I knew he was the jealous type, but I never suspected she’d decide to walk away from the relationship. It will be interesting to see, as this season winds down, if that will stick or they’ll reunite. Adam will have a lot of growing up to do if that’s going to happen.

Meanwhile, heading into Sunday’s episode, “Written in the Stars,” we’re scratching our heads over why Mallory really came back to Canada. Jake riding up in the final moments added a twist we weren’t expecting. Here’s what CBC says about Sunday’s storylines written by Mark Haroun:

Jake’s unexpected arrival at Heartland forces Mallory to admit to Amy and Jack the real reason she came back to Heartland.

And here’s what we can tease after watching a screener:

Mallory explains
The episode begins with Mallory and Jake discussing the circumstances surrounding their experiences overseas. It’s intense and touching, and made even more so by some stellar camera work. The duo make a surprising decision about next steps.

Scott needs a haircut
That’s not part of the story, just an observation. No, Scott’s got a cutting horse named Tab that needs tending to and naturally calls on Amy for help … but it’s Georgie who solves a problem.

A special dinner
There have been plenty of folks given a spot at Heartland’s dinner table, and new faces are added on Sunday. Some of my favourite scenes are filmed around that table and this is particularly noteworthy.

Heartland airs Sundays at 7 p.m. on CBC.
