Like the well-worn jeans, boots and hats they wear, Heartland is a comfortable Sunday night staple. Sure, you know there will be drama —remember Mongolia?—but at its centre, the series is about horses, family and togetherness.
Season 13 of Heartland returns this Sunday night with the episode “Snakes and Ladders.” Here’s the official synopsis from the CBC:
A disgruntled horse owner causes problems for Ty and Amy’s business, and they find themselves at odds about taking him on as a client.
And here are more details from us after watching a screener of the instalment, written by Heather Conkie and directed by Ken Filewych.
Ty and Amy’s house is being built
I’m not sure how much time has passed, but there is no snow on the ground and the foundation for the house has been poured. Lyndy is growing like crazy; when we catch up with the family, Luke is pushing her on the swing. Also? Ty got a haircut.
Amy and Ty’s business partnership is booming…
… but business comes with questionable clients and one of those, played by Joel Keller, shows up at Heartland.
Georgie is back
We catch up with her moments after Jack picked her up from the airport and discover the experiences she had and the countries she visited. Clearly, it has opened her eyes to a world outside of Heartland. And Phoenix has returned as well.
Tim is still grumpy
Even though Jack and Lisa showed him the courtesy of inviting him back onto the ranch, he doesn’t seem all that grateful.
Heartland airs Sundays at 7 p.m. on CBC.
