1 Previously on Heartland --- ANNOUNCER: 55 seconds.
And that's your fastest time of the day, folks.
KIM: Georgie, what is it? - (GEORGIE SIGHS) - Georgie! CLINT: And thanks again for taking him this weekend, it looks like you made some progress.
I know he's hiding something.
I just need a bit more time to get to the bottom of it.
Okay, it's a song.
It's my ex's birthday coming up, and I'm stuck on the hook.
I wonder if you could just take a look at it, and make it good? - Sure, I'll have a look at it.
- Thank you, buddy.
It's good to see you.
(HOOVES THUNDER) (BIRDS CHIRP) (TACK JINGLES) (HOOVES CLOMP) (HORSES HUFF) Are you sure you're up for this? Are you feeling okay? I'm-I'm fine.
Really, I wish people would stop asking me that.
It's great that you wanna help, but I I really don't need any.
Okay, you're gonna have fun doing this.
Yeah, I used a bit of feather from a pheasant, to make this fly look like a tiny wing.
Because that's what fish like.
They think this is something real tasty to eat.
(CHUCKLES) When I go fishing next week with my old friend, Will Vernon, this new fly is gonna be the reason that I catch more fish than he does.
(LAUGHS) TIM: Hey! Hey! It's your favourite Grandpa.
What are you doing, having a tea party? Good.
Hey! Lou tells me that you're going up to the fishing cabin.
- You want some company? - I've already got company.
What's with that RV of yours suddenly appearing at the end of the driveway? My driveway! Well, Stumpy leased out that land to another rancher.
- So I had to move it out.
- Yeah well, you better not think that you can leave it there.
You should be happy that I bought that RV.
'Cause we can travel anywhere.
Like the fishing cabin.
Plus, air conditioning, fridge, microwave, surround sound.
Sleeps six.
I mean, it's way better than that crap cabin you stay in.
Think about it.
There is nothing to think about, believe me.
- Don't touch that! Ah! - Sorry.
I'm sorry.
- (FRUSTRATED GROANS) - I-I got it Jack, I got it.
- You make me crazy! - My fault.
Okay, they all came out.
Ohhh! G.
needs a nap, huh? - Yeah.
Oh my goodness! You probably don't recognize me.
Oh, on the contrary, Doreen Vernon.
Will's better half.
It's good to see you.
It's good to see you.
Jack, I um well, here.
I have something.
(DOOR OPENS) That is Will's guitar.
He's gone, Jack.
Our dear Will passed away.
Oh! (TEARFUL SIGH) S12E10 All Hearts Lead Home And at the break of day You sank into your dream You dreamer Oh oh oh oh You dreamer You dreamer (SPARTAN SNORTS) (SPARTAN GRUNTS) (AMY WHISTLES) You make it look so easy.
- And you will, too.
- How? You already have a great bond with Phoenix.
Well, we'll just build on that.
(HOOVES CLOMP) (WHISTLES) See? He's bored with me already.
Come on Georgie, these things take time.
You have to give it a chance.
I just I just don't really feel like it right now.
Well, I think you need to relax.
You've already proven yourself.
You have a ticket to go to Europe if that's what you wanna do.
That's the last thing I wanna think about.
Okay, fine! But you do need to take a step back.
A big one, to a place where there's no competition.
(AMY'S PHONE CHIMES) (BEEPS PHONE ON) Hey, Grandpa, can I call you back? Yeah, we'll be right there.
We have to go home.
Come on.
(SIGHS TEARFULLY) Will always wanted you to have his guitar.
If anything happened.
I'm honoured to have it.
You know, I was always afraid that Will would end up a total recluse.
But that man he really changed these past couple of years.
He even swallowed his pride, and came courting me after all our time apart.
From what Will said, I guess I have you to thank for that, Jack.
Well, Will never did anything he didn't want to do, so do you have any funeral plans? No.
Will didn't want any of that kind of thing.
It was always his wish that his ashes be scattered on the land where his wild horses are.
You all know how much he loved them.
And that's where he was when he went down.
By the fence, watching his horses.
(LAUGHS WRYLY) He never forgot what you did for that herd.
Saving them from the cull like that.
I'm sure grateful that you came all this way to give me this news in person, Doreen.
Oh, I couldn'tve told you any other way, Jack.
I mean, after all, you and your wife, Lyndy, were the ones who introduced me to Will in the first place.
I thought he was the craziest man I'd ever met.
(BOTH CHUCKLE) It turns out I was right, he was.
(BOTH SIGH) But he was also a hopeless romantic.
That song you helped him with? He serenaded me with it on my last birthday.
I really loved it.
So I just I wanna thank you, Jack.
For giving me my Will not once, but twice in my lifetime.
(MOURNFUL EXHALE) - So take care of yourself, now.
- Oh, you, too.
- Do you want me to cancel? - No, we promised.
- Want some? - I'm okay, thanks.
- Hi.
- Hi, sweetheart.
- Morning.
- Hey.
Ha ha, Mitch's wedding invite.
I got one of these too.
I think I'll be taking a pass on that.
Is anybody gonna go? Yeah, Ty and I are going, and I think Grandpa is, too.
Weddings and funerals.
That's pretty much life in a nutshell, isn't it? Okay I had a date to go fishing with Will Vernon, and by way of honouring my old friend, I'm sticking to the plan.
I'll be at the cabin.
(SIGHS) I really don't think it's a good idea for Grandpa to go up there alone right now.
Maybe it'll be good for him.
Amy, it'll give him some time to process everything.
I'll go with the old man, he shouldn't be alone.
I'm not asking for anyone's permission here.
I'm going.
Hope you all understand.
Grandpa, just don't spend too long up there, okay? And drive safe.
TY: See you, Jack.
Well, I've gotta get some paperwork done - before Luke and Clint show up.
- Yeah, I'll come help you.
Okay, thank you.
You got her? - All right.
- Thank you, Lou.
- Yeah, thank you.
- Okay, have a good one.
- Sorry about the mess.
- Bye, guys.
(DISHES CLINK) (ENVELOPE RUSTLES) (SIGHS HEAVILY) (TEARFUL SIGHS) (READS) "Sometimes when you sleep I watch you dream, and I dream, too.
Someday your eyes will be filled with a joy so deep that they shine.
Someday you will hear something so sad that you will fold up with sorrow.
Someday you will call a song to the wind, and the wind will carry your song away.
" (SIGHS TEARFULLY) (PAGES RUSTLE) You okay, Amy? (AMY SIGHS) (SIGHS) If it hadn'tve been for Will, and our time at Pike River, we never would've gotten back together.
We never would've been married, had Lyndy.
I know.
I thought of that, too.
I just can't believe that he's gone.
Well, you couldn't ask for a better guy to help you with your project, Luke.
Ty here is a mechanical wizard.
Well, I wouldn't go that far, but why don't you tell me about what your project's about? It's for my STEM class.
Uh, STEM class? Okay.
Science, technology Engineering and math.
Okay well, what'd you want to do for your project? I saw this picture of a battery-operated truck.
It was cool.
And I brought some parts that might work? I'd be happy to help you out, Luke, if that's what you wanna do.
Where's Boots? Oh, he's in the barn.
Okay, well, thanks, Clint.
- (BOOTS SNORTS) - Hey, boy.
How are you doing? I missed you.
Hey, Luke? We should get started.
All right, why don't you show me what you got in your bag there? (ZIPPERS JINGLE) (RASPS OPEN) I found these from one of my old trucks.
And uh I found this in my train set.
It was broken anyway, but the motor's still good.
Yeah, this is a good start.
But you gotta find some gears, and then figure out a way to get the power to the wheels.
Like a transmission.
(LAUGHS) Yeah, like a transmission.
Maybe you do know what you're talkin' about.
And maybe you do, too.
(CHUCKLES) All right, well, let's go look in the Quonset hut.
Okay, so we got the body of the truck done today.
And you like it, right, Luke? - Yep.
- Good.
So tomorrow we can get the gears all lined up, and hopefully get the batteries connected to the switch.
What colour do you want to paint it, Luke? - Luke? - (LIGHT SOBBING) Amy, are you okay? - (TEARFUL SIGH) - It's all right.
Ty, I can't (SOBS) (JACK SIGHS) (PAPER RUSTLES) (STRUMS CHORDS) WILL: Have you still got that fishing cabin? JACK: Yeah, yeah, I do.
WILL: Well, that's what you do, then.
You take yourself up there.
As a matter of fact, we both should go up there.
How many songs did we write in that cabin, oh my gosh! Some of them were God awful too, weren't they? (LAUGHS) That is true.
(WILL LAUGHS) JACK: I agree with you, Will, a fishing trip is due, let's set a date.
That's right, I got a social calendar, I'm gonna fit you in.
(BOTH LAUGH) (STRUMS CHORDS) (GROANS) Here's to you, Will.
(PHOENIX SNORTS) (LEAVES RUSTLE IN THE WIND) Hey, do you see that? He's following me.
Good boy.
(SIGHS) I see what you mean about this being calming.
It is kind of Zen.
Yeah, it really quiets your mind.
It does.
Speaking of, is there something on yours? (SIGHS) - I'm worried about my Mom.
- How so? It's just I think she's pretty upset with Mitch, and the wedding, and everything.
Have you talked to her about it? I tried, but she didn't wanna go there.
I don't think she's over him.
Not at all.
Okay, bud.
Come on.
Good boy, Phoenix.
Come around.
All right.
There you go! What do you think? It's fine.
Just fine? I think it's a lot better than "fine".
Let's get the wheels here, and get it set up.
Is Amy okay? Yeah.
(GEARS RATTLE) I saw her last night.
She was sad.
(SIGHS HEAVILY) Yeah, she was.
Our family lost a good friend.
She was a little upset about it.
She couldn't hold it in any longer.
(SIGHS) But you know, sometimes that's the only way to start feeling better, Luke.
(INHALES DEEPLY) We can't always hide our emotions.
If we did, people wouldn't know when we needed comfort.
Or maybe some help.
My mom cries sometimes.
Yeah? Do you know what it's about? Well, she gets sad.
And I'm like you are, with Amy.
I try to make her feel better.
That's good.
That's the right thing to do.
Well, I mean, she doesn't cry all the time.
She sometimes, she wants to have fun.
Like we get up in the middle of the night, and make pancakes, and eat as many as we want.
(LAUGHS) But then, after she kinda gets sad again.
How often does she get sad? I think I wanna paint it blue.
Blue it is.
- Okay.
- Okay.
(RIVER BABBLES) (BIRDS CHIRP) (FISHING LINE WHOOSHES) Okay! So no one wants to bite today, huh? (REEL WHIRS) Okay.
(WHIRRING) (DOOR SLAMS) Hello? Jack? I'm home! Oh my goodness, look at this! Honey? Wow! Where is everybody? - Hey.
- Hi! How are you? Yeah, hey, good, you're back, huh? - Yes.
- Finally.
Well, where is he? I wanted to surprise him.
(SIGHS) Not here.
Where is he? Um What? Will Vernon passed away.
He did? Oh no.
Well, when? Why didn't he tell me that? He probably tried to get a hold of you, but he he couldn't because you haven't exactly been easy to track down, so he probably gave up.
Well, where is he? - Fishing cabin.
- By himself? He went by himself after hearing about Will? I offered to go with him, but he didn't want me to.
So I think he just needs some alone time.
Well, I don't, I don't think he should be alone.
He's been alone for quite a while now, Lisa.
(SIGHS HEAVILY) All right.
(KEYS TAP) Uh-ha! Yes, sir! (REEL WHIRS, FISH SPLASHES) Look at that, Will! That's a beauty! (CHUCKLES) (SPLASHING) (LAUGHS) (FOOTSTEPS SPLASH) (QUACKING) Well, hello there.
(AGITATED QUACKING) How did you get into this mess? Hold still.
Oh, easy, now.
Easy, now.
Hold your horses, I got ya.
- (QUACKS) - There you go.
Ah Be free! Unh! Oh! Ugh!! (LOUD SPLASH) (WATER BURBLES) WILL: Jack! Get up! (CHOKING GASPS) Jack, get up! What're you gonna do, just lay there in the ice cold water and freeze your butt off, instead of coming over here and joining your old friend? (MOANS) Jack, get up! (PAINED GRUNTS) (SPLASHING) Will, you you're here! You came! Oh, man! You gave me the scare of my life! I thought I don't know how to tell you this, but someone's made a serious mistake, they think you (LAUGHS) Well, you are gonna get a good laugh out of this one.
(WATER BABBLES) Have you got time for a chat? (TRUCK RUMBLES) You feel we should be going, I mean, he's-he's grieving, he shouldn't be alone.
He's used to it by now.
Okay, so you've been needling me since I walked through the door.
If you have something to say, why don't you just come out and say it? Well, you've been away for months, Lisa.
Jack hasn't been the same since you left, I can't count the number of times he's tried to call you.
So I guess at the end of the day you just have to ask yourself what's more important.
Your aunt (SCOFFS) or your husband? What?! Tim, that's not fair.
My aunt has been extremely ill.
- Needed me.
- Jack needed you, too.
(SIGHS HEAVILY) So this project's pretty important to you, huh? Yeah, it is.
It has to be perfect.
Well, we're gonna do our best.
Are you worried about your grades, Luke? No.
It's my teachers.
They say I don't pay attention.
And they're always calling my Mom or Clint about it.
If I do good on this, it'll show them all that I can do something right.
And it'll make my Mom proud.
Well, I think we can make that happen.
Wanna do a test drive? - Yeah! - All right, let's do it.
(LAUGHS) Set 'er down? - Okay, let's press the button.
- All right.
(WHIRRING, DIES OFF) Great! It doesn't work! This idea is stupid! You know we should've done something else! Luke! Luke! Whoa, whoa, hey! Hold on a sec, hey! Just relax, okay? Remember what we talked about.
Take a breath.
(BOTH BREATHE DEEPLY) Now, we just need to adjust some gears, okay? Happens all the time on my motorcycle.
Why don't you put it back up on the desk, and we'll take a look at it.
- Hey.
- Lisa's back? - Yeah, um but as soon as she got here, she heard about Will, and her and Dad headed up to the cabin.
Well, I think that's good.
Grandpa shouldn't be alone right now.
- Yeah.
- Hey, what's this? Oh, it's just Mitch and Maya's wedding site.
Listen to this.
"In lieu of gifts, please make a thoughtful donation to our favourite charity, Changing the World With Crystals.
" (SCOFFS) It's so Maya.
Lou, you've gotta talk to me.
Every time I ask how you're doing with this whole wedding thing, you just shut me down.
Well, you know, things have been just a little bit busy, Amy.
Yes, but Georgie doesn't think that you're over Mitch yet.
Is that true? Hello? - Can I come in? - Lou: Maya! Hi! Hi.
(WATER BABBLES) Do you remember being out there on the road month after month, rodeo after rodeo? The big payouts.
The big parties.
The big injuries.
I remember that you were competing at one stage with, we had four broke ribs, and a oh, a collarbone.
I had a busted collarbone, too.
We were insane! Yes, I I guess we were.
I don't know how we made it out of all that alive, to tell you the honest truth.
But I just wanted you to know, they weren't just the wildest times, they were also some of the happiest times of my life.
Yeah, those, those those days were somethin', all right.
But Pike River, you remember that Christmas? When we saved them horses that were trapped there in the avalanche, remember that? I do, yeah.
That was quite the trick to get them out alive.
Yeah well, they weren't the only lives we saved that week.
It was that Christmas, Jack, you saved my life.
- Ah, come on.
- No, you did.
I would've died right, right then and there in that house, just sittin' in there.
I would've died for sure.
But you, you brought back my family, you brought back my life.
And now, well Jack, you've brought back my ex-wife.
Well today, it's my turn to return the favour.
You know, I was so totally set on an outdoor ceremony.
- You know, one with nature.
- Yeah Oh, but no, Mitch's family wanted a church wedding.
I got my way on the reception, though.
It's gonna be in the middle of a field, with these big white tents! Pinnacles of twinkly white lights? Exactly! How did you how did you know? It's what I wanted for my wedding.
But it didn't, it didn't quite work that way.
It'll happen for you, Lou.
I know you'll meet someone who makes you just as happy as Mitch has made me.
I sure hope so.
So, back to business.
The reception, I noticed you still haven't RSVP'd, are you bringing a "plus one"? - Um - Your date.
I need the names for the place cards.
Right, of course, the place cards.
Those are important things.
Place cards.
You know, Mitch hinted that you might have a special someone to invite? He did, did he? - Who? - The um you know, the grocery guy that Mitch's company has the big deal with.
Fred! That's his name.
Fred Garland.
You can tell Mitch that's exactly who I'm bringing.
' That's my "plus one".
Amazing! I'm so glad you have someone.
(SIGHS) You should've seen Doreen's face when I showed up at her door after what, ten years? Maybe more? (LAUGHS) And she takes one look at me and she says, "I cannot believe you're still driving around in that piece of crap!" My stupid truck.
Yeah, I like Doreen.
Oh yeah, salt of the earth, her.
Come on, Jack.
Time to go.
Come here.
(WATER BABBLES) I'd say it's uh, enough of the reminiscing now at this point.
I think it's time to get up, old friend.
(WATER BABBLES) It's time to wake up.
(DOOR RATTLES SHUT) (WATER BURBLES) All right, well, this is a start.
(GRUNTS) And he's got his fishing rod, so I'm just gonna look down around the bend, then.
Jack? Okay.
Okay, I'll go upriver.
Hey Amy, come down here, we've got something to show you! No! Don't tell her! What if it doesn't work again? Hey! It's okay.
You're among friends.
And besides, I think it's gonna work.
All right, Amy, you ready for this? All right Luke, hit the switch.
(TRUCK WHIRRING) (LAUGHS) Look at that! Hey! Wow, look at that, Boots! It works! AMY: That is so cool! (LAUGHS) (BOOTS SNORTS) (WATER BURBLES) Jack? Dad, I just, I wanna know if you guys are doing okay.
Call me back when you get this.
(SIGHS) Wow! You and Maya really have a way of sneaking up on me.
I'm sorry, I knocked, but you were just on the - So - So Maya tells me you're bringing Fred as a guest to the wedding.
You know, I think that's great.
(LAUGHS WRYLY) Mitch, I'm not bringing Fred to the wedding.
I'm not bringing anyone because um, I don't think I can be there.
What? Why? What, you're not gonna come to my wedding? It's just not a good time.
Georgie's been sick, and I don't know if you know this, but my Grandfather's oldest friend, Will Vernon, just passed away, so (SIGHS) I I didn't, I'm sorry.
(SIGHS) And anyway, Mitch, why why would you even want me there? Why? - What do you mean, why? - Just a simple question.
Why? Because I want you.
At the wedding.
I Well, I'll think about it.
Well, I hope to see you there.
(SIGHS) (EXHALES) (SHALLOW BREATHS, GROANS) (PAINED GROANS) (GASPS FOR AIR) Oh no, Jack! - (GASPS FOR AIR) - Jack! Jack, you gotta get it together, come on.
(LABOURED BREATHS) I've seen you wounded way worse than this, and still make it home alive, so come on, let's go.
(CLAPS) I need to thank you, Will.
Yeah, I do.
For everything you've done for me.
Oh You can't be gone, Will.
It's too soon.
I've got no regrets now.
These past few years have just been golden, thanks to you.
The only thing I worry about is them horses.
So if you wanna thank me, you could look in on 'em.
I'll do that.
You're my best friend, Will.
And I never told you that.
Oh I was gonna tell you, I was.
I was gonna tell you on this trip, but then Well, you have, and now you have again, so we're square.
(LAUGHS) TIM: Jack! You hear that? Someone's lookin' out for you.
I don't wanna leave you, Will.
TIM: Jack? Not yet.
You have to.
(MOURNFUL EXHALE) - That's just it.
- Tim: Jack! Answer the man.
Let him know you're here.
Yeah No, no, no, no, louder.
I'm here.
- Jack? - Yeah I'm here.
- Jack! Hey! Hey! - I'm here (JACK GASPS FOR AIR) - Hey, you okay? - Yeah.
You okay? Easy, come on.
Yeah, okay (PAINED GRUNTS) Okay, all right.
Okay, come on, Jack.
All right.
Ah! There you are, what happened? Oh my goodness! What happened? What happened? Oh, sweetie! Are you okay? What-what happened, honey? - (SOBBING) - It's okay.
Oh, sweetie.
Are you okay? Let me see you.
Oh! Hi! Hi! It's okay.
Okay, let's get him to the cabin.
Come on, let's go inside.
Come on.
Come on, let's get you inside.
- Let's go.
- Okay, come on.
Can you tell me what happened? (PAINED GRUNTS) (SCREEN DOOR BANGS) Well, that fridge keeps everything at a perfect, perfect temperature.
(CHUCKLES) What a beautiful gift, thank you.
- Cheers.
- Cheers.
(GLASSES CLINK) Mmm! Hey Lise we're okay, aren't we? You and me? Honey.
I'm sorry I was away for so long.
I was so torn, I mean, if you could've seen Aunt Evelyn, she just You don't need to explain.
You did what you had to do.
It's funny, isn't it? How we can think of family as being so strong, when it's actually so delicate.
I don't know what I would do without you, I really don't.
I'm so happy to be home with you, Cowboy.
I want to play something for you.
- Oh, good.
- (SMALL LAUGH) This is a song (STRUMS CHORDS) Will wrote for his wife.
For Doreen.
But I kinda think it was meant for us, too.
When I look at my life As it passes me by I think of all the times You stood by my side When you said goodbye I lost the love of my life Now I'm longing for the days When you were my wife You're the one that got away Couldn't think of what to say Now we have a second chance And I'm not throwin' it away Here we are together Who knew we'd see the way The start of new beginnings The start of our new day And I can say I love you And mean it even more A second chance, a second dance More precious than before If your love is broken And leaves you on your own Time might heal the pain but Your heart will lead you home Your heart will lead you home Hi! Hi.
I got the highest mark! - I won first place! - Fantastic! Good for you, Luke! I want you to have it.
Um, well, you think your mom would want that, or? No, you're the one who helped me.
(LAUGHS) Thanks, Luke.
I'll-I'll put this on the fridge, okay? How about right there? Looks pretty good, what do you think? - Hi, Lyndy.
Hi! - Hi! CLINT: Hello? Sorry, he bolted up the stairs before I even got out of the car.
That's all right, do you want anything? No, thanks, but um Can we talk? Yeah, yeah, sure.
Is everything okay? Yeah, let's put this here.
That's good.
It's Luke's mother.
She doesn't feel that she can take care of him anymore.
Not properly, so uh I'm afraid I'm looking into foster care.
LUKE: Here.
(LUKE LAUGHS) - You made some tea.
- Yeah.
You're lucky.
You wouldn't be alive if it wasn't for me.
It wasn't just you.
What? Nothing.
Ah, come on.
(HOOVES CLOMP) That's twice I've saved your life.
I guess that is true.
Now I've just gotta figure out how to save my own.
What's that supposed to mean? (SIGHS) Come on, Jack.
Look at me, I got a big second chance.
Just like Will.
And what did I do? Nothing.
Lost and alone.
(SIGHS) That cannot be my best life.
All right.
(CHUCKLES) All right, if you wanna move that thing into the yard here, just do it, 'cause you're going to sneak up on me anyway.
But you're wrong about one thing.
You're not alone, Tim.
And thank you, by the way.
You're welcome.
