Heartland (CA) s17e10 Episode Script

Just the Beginning

Previously on Heartland.
- Who's this beauty?
- That's Powder.
If it's okay with Nathan
and Powder's ready, I want
to ride him at our wedding.
They're going to London.
They leave in a month.
Let me guess,
we're no longer exclusive.
It's worse than that.
They're dropping
Heartland Beef altogether.
So my dad and Grandpa aren't
exactly happy with you now.
I hired a business manager
to help me get into more stores.
That's sound business.
Those initials are my wife's,
and she cheated on me.
Pretty much every relationship
ends in heartbreak.
That's not true. Ty and I had
a great relationship.
That ended in heartbreak.
-I–I–I didn't mean it–
- No, it's okay.
You were clear.
(pensive music)
(tense music)
(foreboding music)
(wind gusting)
(horse nickers)
Hey, Jack. Come on.
We gotta get going. We've got
a long drive ahead of us.
We don't wanna be late
for this meeting with Garland.
A rolling cloud like that,
that's a bad omen.
Nah. Enough of the doom
and gloom.
Fred can't be serious
about droppin' us.
He'll listen to reason,
you'll see.
Let's go.
(horse nickers)
(foreboding music)
(birds chirping)
(Chloe): How's this?
Am I doing it right?
- (laughing)
- (Amy): Looks good.
Just remember to keep
your shoulders square.
- Like this?
- That's it.
And your weight
on your right hip.
- Right.
- There you go.
It still feels
a little strange.
It's okay.
You'll get used to it.
- I promise.
- Thank you.
Hey, do we really need
all these lights, Chlo?
I like the lights.
I think it's gonna be
really magical.
Okay. Okay.
What about the mic?
We don't have that many
guests coming, right?
I feel like they'll be able
to hear without it.
I think we should have one,
just in case.
Yeah, okay.
But maybe you're right
about the lights.
There might be too many. Can you
take one of the strings down?
(phone notification sounds)
Yeah. Yeah, I can.
I do just have to check in
with work quickly.
Work? I thought
you already gave in your notice.
I will… after our honeymoon.
Okay. Well, don't put it off
too much longer.
We leave for London
in, like, a few weeks.
I know.
I know. I won't.
(tense music)
(dog panting)
Heh. Hi, Molly.
Hi, there.
- Hey.
- Hey.
Just, uh, came by
to pick up Powder.
Chloe wants to do
another rehearsal.
Um, she's just taking a break.
Okay. I can wait.
Listen, um…
What I said about your marriage
came out wrong.
And I owe you an apology.
(Powder neighing)
(Molly barking)
Molly, come!
(Molly barks)
There's a fire extinguisher
in that cabin. I'll get Powder.
Hey, Molly, in the truck!
Let's go!
It's okay. Whoa. Whoa.
Whoa! Whoa!
You're okay! Whoa, Powder! Hey!
Molly! Molly, load up!
(Molly whines)
Go on up, come on!
Easy! You're okay!
You're okay!
(Amy grunts)

(tense music)
Okay, I'm gonna go
find Powder.
- I'll help.
- Hey…
Do you think maybe
you accidentally overloaded
that extension cord?
Well, if I did, it was
only because you wanted
all the lights
and the sound system.
Okay. Hey.
No need to get defensive.
All right? I'm not blaming you.
It kind of sounds
like you are.
Hey, hey, hey.
It's no one's fault.
Okay? It's just bad luck.
(horses neighing)
(pensive music)
(twangy music)
Hi, there. We're here
to see Fred Garland.
We have an appointment.
I see that.
Uh, but unfortunately,
Mr. Garland is
no longer available.
There must be some mistake.
He just confirmed
with me yesterday.
Yes, I–I see that too,
but, unfortunately,
he's no longer available.
Listen, we just came
a long way,
and we're not leaving
until we see Fred.
- Th-that won't be possible.
- Is this a joke?
I'm just gonna go in
and say hi to Fred,
and if he doesn't wanna
see us today,
he can tell us himself.
- Dad, wait!
- (receptionist): Uh…
Yes, I need security.
I'm sorry, you're not Fred.
I should hope not.
Is he around here somewhere?
Not anymore.
Well, have you got any idea
where we could find him?
Try the unemployment line.
I–I'm sorry, who are you?
Iris McClane. I'm the new CEO
of Garland Foods.
And who might you be?
This is Lou.
She runs the business side
of things for Heartland Beef.
I'm Jack, this is Tim.
We're the owners.
We had an exclusive deal
with Garland Foods,
and for some no-good reason,
you dumped us.
You know, if you'd just give
us a few minutes of your time,
I'm sure we could convince you
that Heartland Beef is
a superior product
that belongs in your store.
Well, there's the cavalry.
My uninvited guests were
just heading back to the ranch.
Isn't that right, Jack?
- Yes, ma'am.
- (Lou): Ahem.
- Sorry for the interruption.
- That's all right.
(tense music)
Well, I… I don't get it.
Fred was always going on
about how Garland Foods was
a family-owned company.
Apparently not anymore.
The board fire him this morning.
It's all over
the business section.
- What are we gonna do now?
- Nothing.
(Lou sighs)
It's over. We go home.
(birds chirping)
Not to sound
like a broken record…
…but I really am sorry
about the other day.
Yeah, I heard you
the first time.
So apology not accepted.
Do you really believe that all
relationships are doomed?
No, it's not that simple.
I just don't think
we're only meant to be
with one person
our entire lives.
Marriage, kids, that's just
out of the question for you?
Why? Are you proposing?
Because I think you should
at least buy me dinner first.
You didn't answer
my question.
Do I see myself taking
another trip down the aisle?
No. It's just not for me.
Because someone hurt you?
All I need to be happy is
a few acres of land
and some cattle.
And Molly.
Yeah, Molly too.
That must sound lonely to you.
It sounds kind of nice.
I'm not a complicated guy.
The more I get to know you,
the more I know
that's not true at all.
(Amy takes a deep breath)
There's your horse.
(tense music)
It's okay, Powder.
(Powder neighs)
Whoa. Whoa.
Whoa, Powder. You're okay.
Whoa. I know. I know.
I know. You're fine.
You're fine.
I don't wanna
trailer him like this.
I'll take him
back to the ranch.
Come on. Whoa.
Come on. You're okay.
Come in!
Hi. Hi.
I'm sorry for just
dropping in like this,
but I'm looking for Tim
and he's not answering
his phone.
Oh, he's at
a business meeting in Calgary,
so he's probably just tied up.
Oh, okay.
Do you wanna sit
and wait for Tim?
I was just gonna make some tea.
No, it's okay. I'd better go.
(Miranda sighs)
You know, you really got
the better version of him.
When I met Tim, he had a lot
of potential but so many demons.
I thought I could fix him. Heh.
It took me a long time,
way too long,
to figure out that you can't
really mould someone
into the person
you want them to be.
Well, I've tried to fix
my share of men over the years.
And then, eventually, I realized
that the only person
I could fix was myself.
Amen to that.
(pensive music)
(upbeat rock music)
(engines roaring)
What's it like to jump?
It's a total rush
of adrenaline,
and then it's total freedom,
the best feeling in the world.
- I think I wanna try.
- Really?
I didn't think you'd be
into taking a risk like that.
I've changed my mind. I…
I wanna feel
that adrenaline rush.
- That… that total freedom.
- Okay.
Well, start by riding
over the jump,
but just go slow
until you get used to it.
I–I don't think
we can rebuild this
before the wedding.
We're just gonna have to…
We'll have to carry it
all out of here,
and you can have your ceremony
at the end of the dock.
Okay. I mean, I suppose
we don't really have a choice.
(car parks)
Amy! How's Powder? Is he okay?
He wasn't injured,
but the fire really upset him.
I'm not sure he's gonna be
ridable in time for the wedding.
I will do everything I can.
Why'd you have to take
that work call?
Um… what does that have
to do with anything?
If you had been
paying attention,
maybe none of this
would've happened.
Chloe, I–I've spent
the entire day doing
exactly what you wanted.
I just needed to step away
for a couple minutes
to focus on my job.
Your job that you were
supposed to quit weeks ago.
Okay, well, maybe
it's not that easy.
And for your information,
that call was with the partners.
- They offered me a promotion.
- A promotion?
What did you tell them?
I told them that I would
discuss it with you.
What is there to discuss?
Shane, we are moving to London.
That's what we both want,
isn't it?
I'm not so sure anymore.
Okay, well, in that case,
let's just call it off.
And maybe the whole wedding too.
What? Chloe! Chloe! Come on!
Shane, I don't think
she means it.
Yeah, she'll calm down.
Just give her some time.
What do you guys care?
You're probably happy.
This is exactly what you wanted,
isn't it?
That's not true!
(Tim): Come on, Shane!
(suspenseful rock music)
(engine roaring)
I know I said
to go slow, but…
- Why am I so bad at this?
- Don't worry about it.
Look, I–I just need
to practise more.
Maybe you should just accept
the fact that you're not
the hard core type,
which is okay!
- Jumps aren't for everyone.
- Yeah.
(pensive music)
(birds chirping)
They make
a prefabricated gazebo.
It won't be as nice
as the one we built,
but I think we could have it
here in time for the wedding.
If there is a wedding.
- You talked to Chloe?
- I tried.
Well, you gotta be honest
with her about London.
I have been honest.
I really did want to go, but…
Things changed.
Well, that happens
sometimes, Shane.
Circumstances change,
minds change.
But you don't let it ruin
your relationship.
There's always common ground.
You gotta find
the common ground.
Hey, no matter what happens
with Chloe and I…
It means a lot that you built
that gazebo for us.
- I had a lot of fun.
- It was fun.
Well, next time, we'll build
something less flammable.
You're still throwing rocks
out here, huh?
Still throwing rocks.
(light music)
(pensive music)
He seems a lot calmer now.
He might be
okay for the wedding.
There might not
even be a wedding.
What do you mean?
Well, my brother
and Chloe aren't exactly
in a great place right now.
I'm sorry to hear that.
Aren't you gonna say
"I told you so"?
Well, you got me all wrong.
Just because my marriage
ended badly doesn't mean
I wish that on anybody else.
(horses neighing and nickering)
I'd better go get
Lyndy ready for dinner.
If you could go back to the day
you met your husband…
Only this time,
you knew what was coming…
The… pain, the loss…
Would you do it again?
In a heartbeat.
(pensive music)
(eagle calls)
(foreboding music)
Evening, Jack.
What do you think
you're doing?
I was just checking on Powder.
That's not what I meant.
We were doing just fine
until you came around.
Now, Garland Foods
has dropped us.
Was this your plan all along,
to run us out of business?
I know you consider me
the enemy,
but I'd rather just be
a friendly competitor.
I think the competition
is over. You've won.
You sure about that?
Because you don't strike me
as the kind of guy who gives up
without a fight.
(engine starts)
Have a good evening, Jack.
(group): ♪Happy birthday,
dear Lisa ♪
Happy birthday to you ♪♪
Thank you all very much.
This is a beautiful cake.
Will you help me?
Will you help me?
- Make a wish.
- Oh, I will.
Okay, ready? Mm!
- Yay! Thank you.
- Yay! Here, let me do that.
Thank you. Aww.
So is Miranda
or Shane and Chloe
going to join us for cake?
Uh… no, I think
they just needed a quiet night.
Yeah, well,
I don't blame them.
I can't believe
the gazebo burned down.
Nothing seems to be
going right today.
Maybe there was
something to that bad omen
you saw in the sky earlier.
Nah, never mind about that.
Let's talk about something else.
Did you hire the guys that we
need to help move the herd?
Something other than work.
You know what?
I'm gonna open
that bottle of wine
we've been saving
for this special occasion.
You know what, honey?
Let's wait.
I don't think anybody's in
a particularly celebratory mood.
I'm sorry, Lise.
I promise I'll make up
for the lacklustre party.
Jack, don't be silly.
This has been lovely.
But I do have a request
for my birthday.
Anything you want, it's yours.
Well, it's been a long time
since we all did a cattle drive.
Those were always
such happy times.
Well, they certainly were.
Maybe we could all use
a reminder of that.
Tim, you said you're moving
the herd in the morning,
so what do you say?
Family cattle drive?
Out here, it's beautiful!
- Let's go!
- There you go, move!
- You got him!
- Hup! Come on!
- Better keep going.
- Nice work!
- Get up there!
- I got him.
- Come on, cows!
- Let's go! Hup!
Come on. Yeah!
Let's just keep it moving.
Okay? Come on.
Lise, on your left,
right there!
Oh! Okay, let's go!
- Hup!
- Let's go!
- Let's go. Come on!
- Nice work!
- (whistling)
- How'd I do?
I couldn't have done
better myself.
(upbeat country music)
- You doing okay, cowboy?
- Yeah, I'm doing fine.
I mean, we might lose
our cattle business,
and Shane's wedding has…
Completely gone up in smoke,
literally gone up in smoke!
Okay, the wedding is not
going according to plan,
but you've got your son
back in your life.
You're right.
I'm grateful for that.
I just wanted
his big day to be special.
Honey, Shane's not having
his wedding here
because of the gazebo.
He's having his wedding here
because of you.
Last year, this time,
he was basically a stranger.
Look how far you've come.
- I love you.
- I love you.
I just want you to know
that we're gonna do
whatever we can to get
this wedding back on track.
Yeah. I'm gonna spruce up
the dude ranch, don't worry.
Yeah, and I'll work
with Powder.
Thank you both.
You know, Shane…
Is really gonna appreciate
the fact that his big sisters
are in his corner the whole way,
but… you need to know
I appreciate it too.
- Thank you.
- Yeah, of course.
- He's our little brother.
- We won't let him down.
Come on.
- Those are my daughters.
- Right? Right? Come on.
Thank you, Lise, for the idea
to do this together.
You were right.
It has been way too long.
And it's a good reminder
of what really matters,
and it's not the cattle
or the land.
What matters is family.
Being there for one another
through the good times and bad.
We'll figure out a way to get
Heartland Beef back on track
with or without Garland Foods.
The Bartlett-Fleming-Morris clan
never give up.
We fight, and that's exactly
what we're gonna do.
All right! Oh, that's great!
(camera clicking)
Perfect. Okay. Lou and Lisa,
can you guys just switch spots?
(camera clicking)
Ah, that's great!
Awesome. Lyndy, how about
your hand on your hip?
Oh, good! That's perfect.
(camera clicking)
Oh, you all look amazing!
(camera clicks)
I appreciate it, everybody.
Thank you.
Hey, Jess, could I,
uh, take a look at those?
Yeah, of course.
Thank you.
Oh, my gosh.
These are incredible!
Thank you.
Hey, could you send me this one?
- Yeah, of course.
- Great.
I have an idea.
(pensive music)
I'm sorry I burned it down.
It's not your fault.
We would've needed
our own nuclear power plant
for all the things
I was demanding.
I'm starting to turn
into a real bridezilla.
Can you ever forgive me?
Only if you can forgive me for
changing my mind about London.
I really did want to go when
we made that decision together.
But then, things started to fall
into place at my firm, and–
I'm really proud of you.
And of course you have
to accept that promotion.
London only makes sense
if the both of us are
excited about it.
I don't wanna go
if it means you have to take
a step backwards.
Okay, but what about
your job there?
Actually, I turned down
a really good job offer
in Philly last week,
but I called this morning to see
if the position was still open.
- And?
- And we're negotiating terms.
It looks very promising.
Will you marry me?
I already said yes.
But I'd say yes again,
and I'd say yes a million
more times if I could.
(uplifting music)
(exhales heavily)
The Bartlett-Fleming-Morris
clan doesn't give up.
We fight.
(rising rock music)
(engine starts)
Hey! You okay?
(Katie sighs)
I'm… I'm fine.
I want to go again.
Maybe I was wrong about you.
Maybe you're
more of a risk taker after all.
Hold this.
(hopeful music)
(Amy clucking)
Get up.
Come on.
Come on. Come on.
Whoa. Come on.
Hey, hey. Powder. Come on.
♪I wasn't taught this way ♪
With a thousand things
to say ♪
I was born
with a broken heart ♪♪
And I thought… I thought
he was getting a bit better,
but I don't think
he's ready for the wedding.
Well, we have to keep trying.
Chloe deserves to have her
white horse for her wedding day.
You know, if I didn't
know any better,
I would think that you're
the hopeless romantic.
- Are we gonna do this or not?
- Hmm…
I think we need
to take a step back.
You and Powder are a good team,
so we just need to focus on that
and get him to trust you again.
That's where we'll start.
(pensive music)
Lou. Don't be nervous.
You have
a really good idea here.
If this doesn't impress
the big wigs, nothing will.
They're ready for you now.
Heartland Beef is about quality,
and that's never gonna change.
But what does have
to change is our story.
The competition's been
trying to copy us.
We're okay with that.
We're flattered.
But now, we're going
in a whole new direction.
So Heartland's
a pretty special place.
It's–it's been in our family
for six generations,
and you can bet that is not
an end to a story,
that's a beginning.
Now, these women, they're
the future of our operation.
As you can see,
that future looks awful bright.
Thanks, Grandpa.
Now, in the proposal I handed
out earlier, you'll see
this exciting new marketing
strategy all laid out
as well as our plan
to increase sales.
-If you'll turn to page–
- Yes, looks like it's all here.
Uh, we'll have a look
and let you know our thoughts.
Great, uh, but if you'll
just let me explain–
Thank you for your time.
Our receptionist will be happy
to validate your parking.
(tense music)
- Uh, take a look at this.
- Okay.
- Okay.
- Okay, well, what's next?
(indistinct conversation)
We don't need you, you know.
What'd you say?
You act as if you hold
all the cards,
but the truth is that
Garland Foods is only as good
as the product on your shelves.
So you can find cheaper
alternatives to our beef,
but your customers will know
the difference.
Our product is organic
and responsibly raised
in harmony with the environment.
Generations of customers
have responded
to the quality of our beef,
and we know they will
for generations to come.
That's our story.
If you don't want to be
part of that story,
then that's your loss.
(indistinct conversation)
She does raise a point.
(Powder nickers)
(Nathan clucking)
(Nathan makes kissing sound)
Come on, Powder. Agh!
- You wanna try again?
- No, we've been at this
for a while.
I should let him rest.
We've run out of time,
haven't we?
I'll go break the news.
(gate creaks)
(uncertain music)
Okay, we are ready to work.
Yes, let's get
this place cleaned up.
I pulled in some
- Hey. We're here to help.
- Hi, girls.
Chloe, um, I'm really sorry,
but I've been working
with Powder, and I don't think
he's gonna be ready
for the wedding.
Amy, it's okay. I understand.
But we might have
some good news.
Amy and I were talking
on the way here, and we have
an idea for an alternate
location for the wedding.
Yeah? What did you
have in mind?
(birds chirping)
(soft music)
This is where Ty and I
were gonna build our house.
There's a lot
of good memories here.
It's one of the most beautiful
parts of the ranch.
(distant neighing)
I think it's the perfect place
for a new beginning.
I know there's
a lot to organize
if you decide to have
the wedding here,
but I promise to help you
handle everything.
What do you guys thing?
It's so much better
than the gazebo.
It's better than I could have
ever imagined.
Yeah, you're right.
It's the perfect place
for a new beginning.
(birds chirping)
Thank you.
- Come here.
- Thanks.
I'm glad you like it.
- It's gonna be beautiful.
- Yeah.
(birds chirping)
(soft music)
(horse nickering and neighing)
(Nathan making kissing sounds)
(Powder snorting)
(Nathan making kissing sounds)
(Powder snorts softly)
- Good morning.
- Good morning.
- You've been busy.
- I sure have.
(lively music)
(Nathan clucking)
(Nathan clucking)
I think he's back on track.
I can see that.
You can walk Chloe
down the aisle on him
just like you had planned.
I don't think so.
Why not?
Well, I'd wanna work
with Powder a lot more
before I felt comfortable
with Chloe riding him.
- He's ready. I can feel it.
- No, I agree.
But he trusts you.
So you're the only one who could
safely lead her down the aisle.
Well, if you wanted
to invite me to the wedding,
you could've just asked.
(soft music)
Is everybody decent?
Oh, yeah. It's just me.
Chloe's at the house,
getting ready.
I can't figure this thing out.
- I think it's…
- Let me try.
I hope you don't mind
me saying…
Ahem… how proud I am of you.
And how much it means to me
to be here for your wedding day.
Hey, listen, uh…
Chloe and I decided not to have
groomsmen and bridesmaids,
but I didn't think I would–
I would be this nervous.
And I could really use
a best man standing beside me.
Would you do that for me?
I'd be honoured.
You've got yourself a best man.
I, uh, don't know
what I'm doing there.
Okay, yeah, uh, no.
I'll, uh, watch a video.
(birds chirping)
(lively classical music)
(indistinct conversations)
- How do I look?
- You look amazing, son.
Okay, most of the guests
are here,
and Chloe is en route,
so we should be good
to get started
in just a few minutes.
- Okay.
- How do you feel?
I sort of feel like I might
throw up a little bit.
You're gonna be great.
I still remember when you were
that little kid
I taught to ride a horse
all those years ago.
Well, that little kid
always felt brave
when he wore the belt buckle
that you gave him.
- So…
- You didn't.
- I wore it.
- Oh! It looks good!
- Does it go well with the tux?
- I think it does.
- Looks perfect. Just breathe.
- Excuse me a minute.
- You look beautiful.
- Thanks!
- You don't look so bad yourself.
- Yeah.
Hey, by the way,
I–I really appreciate
whatever it was
you said to Shane.
Yeah. He's really turned
into a fine young man.
And I know that's
entirely because of you.
- I'm grateful.
- Thanks.
You know, you and I were
so wrong for each other,
but… we managed to create
something so right.
- Yeah, we did.
- Ah, Miranda!
Oh, there he is! Hi!
- I'm so sorry I'm late.
- It's okay.
Tim, meet my husband, Paul.
- Paul.
- This Shane's father, Tim.
- I've heard a lot about you.
- Don't hold that against me.
- Oh.
- Come.
("Pachelbel's Canon"
by Johann Pachelbel)
Well, Shane and Chloe asked me
to help them get married,
so… so here I am.
Now, I've been spending
a lot of time recently
staring up at the sky,
searching for omens.
The problem with always looking
up at the sky
is you miss what's happening
right in front of you.
Now, today is not
about the future.
It's not about the past.
It's about this moment.
And it's
about the incredible hope
that is brought
into the world when…
When two people make
a commitment to one another.
So forget omens in the sky.
There's something
so much more powerful,
something so much
more important.
And that is love.
And it is with great pleasure
that I get to ask Chloe,
do you take Shane
to be your husband?
Forever and always,
from the bottom of my heart,
I do.
(soft music)
And Shane, do you take Chloe
to be your wife?
Gazebo fires
and runaway horses
couldn't stop me
from saying I do.
(uplifting music)
Well, then, I figure
you two better kiss
and make it official.
(pensive music)
Molly is so good
at moving those cows!
Yes, she is.
I don't know
what I'd do without her.
The best part is
she works for kibble.
(Amy laughs)
You, uh, you disappeared
after the wedding.
Oh, it seemed
like a family affair.
I didn't want to get in the way.
I just wanted to thank you.
You, uh, you really made
Chloe and my brother happy.
- Yeah, no problem.
- We're going cloud gazing.
Do you wanna come too?
Lyndy, I'm sure Nathan has
a lot of work to do.
(light music)
So what's the surprise?
I'm gonna go over that jump.
I thought you told me
you didn't do jumps.
I don't. At least, not yet.
But I've been practising.
Katie… it's dangerous.
A little, yeah.
Most of the time, I chicken out.
But that's
why I wanted you here.
Because even though I know
you're worried,
I still know I always have
you in my corner.
Yeah, of course, you do.
But you don't have to do this.
Yes, I do.
The Bartlett-Fleming-Morris clan
doesn't give up.
We fight. Remember?
Yes, I remember.
(rising music)
(engine starts)
(dramatic music)
Yeah, Katie!
- Oh, my gosh, Katie!
- Yes! I did it!
- I did it!
- That was amazing!
Oh, my gosh!
- I did it. I really did it!
- You did it!
I was developing
the wedding photos,
and… I thought that you would
wanna have this one.
