When Calls The Heart (2014) s08e03 Episode Script

From the Ashes

1 Previously on When Calls the Heart If I'm being completely honest I have come because my husband left me.
It's awful pretty and peaceful.
We have ourselves a deal.
Joseph, welcome to Hope Valley.
Henry! Uh, uh, I'm fine! Your blood pressure is dangerous.
You want more than I can give you.
It would just hurt too much if I lost you the way I lost Jack.
Elizabeth! Elizabeth, I love you.
Come on.
Elizabeth! [TAPPING.]
- How's that? - Perfect.
So, what do you think? They're called "Freedom Alls"? ROSEMARY: Faith brought them back from Chicago, Clara wants to try selling them here.
I thought I'd run them up the flag pole and see who salutes.
I'm afraid that won't be me.
I expected as much.
But, you know, I need to be open to changing fashion and support Clara.
I can't run this dress shop forever.
Maybe someday she'll Are you thinking of giving up the dress shop? Let's not talk about me.
- Rosemary.
- No.
Have you seen Nathan since you told him the two of you couldn't be together? No, and I hated riding off the way I did.
But who knows what would have happened between you two if you hadn't? I know I made the right choice not to be with Nathan.
But I don't know that made the choice to be with Lucas.
Have you seen Lucas since you spoke with Nathan? No, and I'd like to keep it that way.
At least until after his mother tells him that his father left her.
That really is a terrible spot she put you in.
What's still confusing though, Lucas has always spoken of his parents' marriage - as if it were some fairy tale - Lucas! Good morning, ladies.
- Good morning.
- Hi.
- What are all those? - More books for the library.
My mother mentioned you're getting together this morning? Yes, and I should really be going.
I have a few things to take care of beforehand.
How is your mother? She's not quite herself.
I'm thinking of telephoning my father and seeing if he would be willing to come and visit her here.
That would be a surprise.
I think so.
Have a lovely day.
You too.
Nathan, I need a sec? I've been working on Allie's adoption but between document requests and extra paperwork of my own it's gonna be a few more weeks.
Well, whatever you can do to push it along, Bill.
And uh, about my land? Another buyer's been asking Oh, I uh, I changed my mind.
You're not interested anymore? No, I'm not.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to really get on with my rounds.
Is that Andrew? Bill.
Or do I call you Judge Avery? Superintendent Hargraves.
I heard you'd been promoted.
I learned from the best.
- It's good to see you.
- Nathan, I'd like you to Yeah, we uh we know each other.
Constable Grant.
What brings you to Hope Valley? Oh, I have a matter to discuss with the constable here.
I see.
Well, hopefully we can catch up before you leave.
I'd like that.
This isn't pleasant news so I won't delay in giving it to you.
No, I'm sure you won't.
It's about the shooting last year.
During the prisoner transfer.
There was an investigation, the case is closed, sir.
But in light of the severity of the incident and the loss of a Mountie's life we are opening another internal inquiry.
May I ask the reason why, sir? The inquiry is set to begin in the next few days here in Hope Valley.
You're calling me as a witness.
Constable, you are the focus of this inquiry, to determine your possible culpability as to whether or not you were at fault.
Your career as a Mountie is at stake.
Ooh! What's happening out there? Is that the beehive you bought Ned for his birthday? Shh! He'll hear you.
Well, unfortunately no, it's not.
There's some kind of delay with my order.
I thought I'd take a cue from you and buy Bill something for his birthday.
- Mmm.
- What do you suggest? Molly, how should I know? Seems he has everything a man could want.
He doesn't have a wife.
Seriously, I'm kidding.
Excuse me.
Ok, thanks Ned.
FLORENCE: Hope Valley Central, how may I direct your call? Uh, young man, if you would be so kind? Carson's got me in this back brace.
I can't do anything.
Is it something for the mill? No, actually this is something we brought home from our trip to South America.
Let me guess.
You're not gonna guess.
Oh, I don't know, I'm pretty good at this.
Ned, you are never gonna guess.
Is it a JESSE: A chair? I wanted to guess.
You shipped a chair, this chair, half way around the world? Well, it's not exactly half way around the world.
And I'll have you know this isn't just any old chair.
Look at the patina of the wood.
The lines.
The top rail.
The splats.
Its form follows its function.
This is a beautiful chair.
It looks like any old chair to me.
Hey, woah-ow! What? - It's bad luck.
- Why? The person for whom the chair was made must be the first person to sit in said chair.
That's me.
- You serious? - Yeah, I'm serious.
All right.
So um, I need you to take this to my house for me and when you're there maybe move the motorcycle to the mill.
I promised Rosemary I'd do it but with this back brace not gonna happen.
Can I sit on that? [LAUGHS.]
Very funny.
Come on, don't make me laugh.
It hurts.
- See ya.
- Yeah.
If you ever wanna shave it off I know just the gal to do it.
Only just to see what's hiding underneath.
It had gotten a bit full.
Ah! You have a customer.
Business has picked up.
Shave it all off? - Well, I'd be curious to see.
- That's what I said.
You can always grow it back.
Let me think about it.
Can you stay and chat? For a moment.
I'm meeting Carson.
Thank you.
Uh, Lucas, this is too much.
Oh, no, please, please, Fiona.
I insist.
Besides, after I meet Lee about a lumber order I might need a free haircut.
He is so nice.
Woo-hoo-hoo-hoo! If you could, I'd like to put a rush on this order.
Every day that we wait is a day we're not drilling.
We could deliver the lumber by end of the week.
- That sounds good.
- Lucas.
- Hi, Lee.
- Hey, Michael.
The men on 2 need to talk.
This well has been nothing but trouble since Henry suggested we start drilling.
Everybody thinks we should drill down another 50 feet.
And I agree.
Fifty feet becomes 100 feet, becomes 300 feet.
How'd you like to buy an oil well? [LAUGHS.]
I don't think so.
Good luck, fellas.
Fiona said she didn't think Hope Valley was ready for those.
Change is difficult for some people.
Oh, my goodness, look at what Dottie sent over from Union City.
CLARA: Oh ROSEMARY: This bead work.
Oh, it's beautiful.
I suppose she wants us to put this in the window.
Clara! Clara! Clara! Woo-hoo-hoo-hoo! What are you doing? Hey.
Jesse Flynn, you have a wife to consider.
You get off that motorcycle right now before you risk leaving a widow.
This is exactly why I wanted Lee to sell that thing.
Is that why he's having me ride this down to the mill? You know, Lee always said that you loved riding on the back of the motorcycle.
That was a long time ago, Jesse.
I'm a married woman now and Lee is a married man.
If I never see that motorcycle again it'll be too soon.
I think someone's interested in the Freedom Alls.
You tell Lee to sell that bike to the very first person who comes along.
- Ok.
- Jesse.
If I'm not mistaken, it's in the third chapter.
Why don't I rewrite your manuscript while you relax? I haven't been very focused, I'm sorry.
You have the gift of understatement.
May I ask what has you so troubled? I assume you haven't told Lucas that your husband left you.
Not yet.
He's going to find out eventually.
Are you insinuating that if I don't tell Lucas you will? That's not what I meant.
Shall we get back to work? - May I open the window? - Yes.
Yes, go ahead.
Lucas tells me Constable Grant is a suitor.
Is that what Lucas tells you? I asked.
He confirmed.
Constable Grant is not a suitor.
And yet you clearly regard him with some sort of sentiment.
Elizabeth, from your writing and from the short time I have known you I am aware that you feel things deeply.
You must have some idea of your affections for Constable Grant and my son.
As you suggested, shall we get back to work? Ned? Oh, Henry.
I, uh, I didn't see you come in.
I wanted to apologize.
For ? I was upset and accusatory, and I know better than to think you'd open my mail.
It's long forgotten.
Thank you, Henry.
Let me see if you have any mail.
Thank you.
You were right to be angry with me.
I uh, hope that we can get by this.
Thank you, Henry.
I hope so, too.
No, uh, nothing today.
Thank you, Ned.
Good afternoon, Florence.
I was the one he was accusatory towards.
But I defended you.
Yes, you did.
CLARA: What are you doing back here? - Huh? - Jesse, I'm busy.
Just I wanna know what you think about it.
What's that supposed to mean? It means I know where this discussion is going and I do not want you buying Lee's motorcycle.
- Why not? I'll be able - That thing is dangerous.
to get around so much faster and it'll save us money.
How is that? Because we won't have to buy a car.
Who said we're buying a car? ROSEMARY: Clara! Can we talk about this later? But Clara, what if someone else buys it first, though? There will be other motorcycles.
I have to get back to work.
BILL: This can't be right.
I tried telling you that earlier.
The Mounties have the right to hold an inquiry any time they want, though.
They really do.
- So, what - It's just some sort of formality.
Andrew's a good Mountie but he's a stickler when it comes to detail.
That's one way of putting it.
Why don't you two get along? We've crossed paths before.
Do you care to elaborate? No.
If this well doesn't come in soon I think it's time to call it a day.
Like you said, it's always been trouble.
No, I mean, I'm considering shutting down the entire operation.
- Is that normal? - No.
Get outta there! Come on, get out! [RUMBLING CONTINUES.]
- That came from down at the derricks.
I'll meet you! Make sure everyone stays here.
- BILL: Yeah.
- CARSON: Bill? I think there's been an explosion down at the derricks.
CARSON: I'll prepare for any casualties.
- Faith? - I'll be right there.
- There must be a fire.
- I need to find Molly.
Lee had an appointment with Lucas! LEE: Sweetheart, sweetheart! Lee, Lee.
I'm gonna head back down there, okay? No, Lee, Lee, you're injured.
- What if somebody needs help? - Lee! - Keep folks up here! - We can help! No, no, it's too dangerous.
If we need help we'll call for more men.
ELIZABETH: Helen! I have to know about Lucas! Helen! Helen! It's too dangerous! I'll wait here with you.
I'm sure someone will send word.
I'm sure he's fine.
Oh, goodness.
Don't worry about me, see if everyone's ok.
- Are you all right? - Yeah.
A spark must have ignited the oil.
Lucas, how do we put this fire out? I don't know.
NATHAN: You gotta get your men outta there! - Guys! Guys! Clear out! - Lucas! I'm fine.
Mike needs help.
I'm ok.
Henry, what're we gonna do? We're going to need dynamite.
A lot of it.
LUCAS: Here, grab some of these.
Come on, hurry, hurry, let's go! - Lucas, what can I do? - Here take these.
BILL: Almost there.
The blast from the dynamite momentarily depletes the fire of oxygen, extinguishing the flame.
At least that's the theory.
- Will this do? - Yeah, that'll work.
- How's this? - Yes! That'll work, too.
Can you carry that in front of us? Yeah, of course.
We're gonna need some more men to help push this cart towards the fire.
- Yeah.
- I'm in.
Me too.
We're gonna need at least one more.
Does it have to be a man? Now you and Jesse need to hold that up to protect us from the heat.
How close do we need to get? As close as we can.
We're not gonna have much time to get back before the dynamite explodes.
Right, so how how close do we need to get? As close as we can then we get down and run.
But how close do we need to get? - Everybody ready? - All set! Hey! Hey! Never mind! Go! Go! Push! BILL: Push! Keep pushing! Push! Back! Get back! Everybody back! [EXPLOSION.]
(LIGHT ROCK MUSIC) Your mother's inside.
That's who I'm coming to find but I'm glad I ran into you.
Would you have a moment? Yeah, I'm just going over to the mercantile.
Talk to your mother and I'll meet you after.
- I'll just be a minute.
- Yeah.
Look who's dining with us.
Gustav mentioned you might be here.
Enjoy your breakfast.
Nice chatting with you, Bill.
Are you still angry with me? It was my responsibility to jump in and help put out that fire.
You are all I have left.
You're being dramatic.
I'm sorry.
I love you, too.
I need to speak with Henry Gowen.
Let's have lunch.
At the saloon? Yes.
I tried telephoning father.
Do you have any idea where he might be? No.
Why don't I give him a try? - Are you sure that you wouldn't - Lucas, you are not sending me on vacation.
I was doing my job.
If you change your mind Thank you.
That'll be my second.
These are blueberry.
And like the first, they're free.
Here you are.
Is something wrong? No, no.
Thank you, Ned.
Would you stop being so stubborn? I appreciate your concern.
Let me help you to the infirmary.
Florence, really.
I'm fine.
Anyone can see that you're not.
At least let me help you with these boxes.
I don't know why you're being so stiff-necked.
There's no doubt you have done more than just twist your ankle.
And I have heard from so many how gallant you were yesterday.
I appreciate you waiting.
No no trouble.
I just wanna say thank you again for yesterday.
Well, I'm just glad that nobody got hurt.
Henry, while I can't see my way to agree to all your terms I would like you to come back to work.
I uh, I will think about it.
You were eager just a few weeks ago.
I'll uh I'll think about it.
Ow! Well, how was it? The chair? - Yes.
- I haven't sat in it yet.
You're gonna be late for work.
I know, I just I just need one minute.
I think that Ow.
That's it.
That's it.
What do you think? How about there? - That's a fine spot.
- Yeah.
So were the last 15 places you tried it.
Rosie, the perfect chair Deserves the perfect spot.
Yes, you've mentioned that.
- Now, sit down.
- No! I'm not gonna sit down until I get this silly back brace off.
- [SIGHS.]
- It has to feel right.
- And you won't either because - Bad luck.
I've got it.
- Mmm-hmm.
- Mmm-hmm.
- Oh, for goodness sakes, Lee Coulter.
- No, no.
I just realized that where it was the sun was gonna be directly in my eyes when I was reading the newspaper.
Do you want me to drive you to work? No, Carson wants me to walk, he says it's good for my back, but thank you for the offer.
- Just - [CHUCKLES.]
That's it.
This is the spot, I know it.
Are you sure? Yeah.
Gotta go.
Love you.
Hey! Hey! Hey, young man.
A lot of fun, isn't it? Oh, more than a barrel full of monkeys! What? Oh, sorry.
I wanna buy it off you.
- Oh, really? - Yeah.
And what does Clara think about that? She loves seeing me happy.
Ah, well I'm glad you two have ironed things out.
So uh, what do you say? How much? Oh, you know how much.
I know how much, but how much for me? [LAUGHS.]
Ok, I'll give you five bucks off.
Yes! Deal.
Ok, I'll get the money.
No, no, no, that's fine, you're good for it.
You can pay me later.
You are the best boss ever! Be safe! Hmm.
Do you remember what happened? I must have stepped in a hole.
When he and the others were charging the raging inferno.
I heard.
Thank you, Ned.
- Ned Yost.
One of the town heroes.
That's what we were just saying.
You do have some swelling which indicates a mild lateral sprain.
The best thing will be for you to stay off your foot for a week.
- A week? No, I can't possibly - We can get you some crutches.
- Go ahead and - What did you do to yourself, Ned? He twisted his ankle.
I stepped in a hole.
Ned, do you happen to remember if your foot turned in like this? The other way.
Out like this way? - [WINCES.]
Ah, ah! - That's it.
See, with a lateral sprain the foot turns inward but with a high ankle sprain it turns outward like that.
Yes, but if you feel the tendon Faith's gonna go ahead and wrap you up nice and tight and you'll be back to your heroic antics right away.
- Thank you, Doctor.
- You're welcome.
- Shoe.
- Shoe! That's right, shoe.
And what're you two up to? Well, we are just learning the word "shoe" - and then we are going into town - Mmm-hmm.
And then and this is the best part Mmm-hmm.
We are starting a garden in the back yard.
Oh! Well, do you want me to watch Jack while you head into town? I'd love to do a little gardening.
You don't mind? I just need to talk to Bill.
Oh, no.
Not at all.
Let's see, we can plant some carrots and peas.
We might even plant some radishes.
I like carrots.
All right.
Save some for mommy.
I won't be long.
Oh, take your time.
But if we're not here when you get home we may have just gone up the beanstalk.
There you go.
Oh, oh! No, no, no, no! Oh, don't touch Uncle Lee's chair.
That's his brand new chair.
We don't want to get it dirty, all right? There you go.
Well, that is comfortable.
Well, all I should tell you is that one of the superintendents, an old friend of mine, actually, gave Nathan some bad news.
Bill, please.
The Mounties are investigating last autumn's prisoner transfer shooting.
Wasn't that already completed? It's it's it's an inside investigation.
The Mounties always try to better perform their duties.
Well, is this about enhancing the ranks or is there more to it than that? Bill, I wanna know.
This is all highly unusual.
Why there's even an inquiry I have no idea but I can promise you I'll keep digging until I find out.
Why didn't you tell me? You knew my father left my mother yet you didn't think you should tell me in case I might have helped.
Your mother confided in me and she specifically asked me not to tell you, Lucas.
I wanted to respect her request.
This isn't my fault.
I need your advice.
It seems Jesse asked for the day off.
Why? So he can ride his new motorcycle to Albert Falls even though I asked him not to buy it.
Maybe you can help.
It's as if I'm back in Chicago being ignored alongside all the other interns.
I just never would have expected this from Carson.
- Am I interrupting? - It seems like you're more upset.
What's going on with you? Jesse's behaving as though anything I have to say about the decisions in our marriage is unimportant.
Carson is treating me the exact same way when it comes to working alongside him as a doctor.
I have chocolate cake at the cafe.
Let's go.
Save me a slice! Say something.
Please? Lee, I am so sorry.
And I know apologizing won't put your chair back together but I honestly, I was just trying to see why you love it so much and And you were right.
It is was the most comfortable chair I have ever sat in, for that brief, brief moment.
Can you please tell me why this chair means so much to you? It's all right.
Normally you let things roll off like water off a duck.
Yeah, I'm sorry.
You're sorry? For what? I guess I I guess I should have said something.
My grandfather used to own a wood working shop and he could build anything.
Chairs, tables, cabinets, you name it.
And I always got to help him.
And one time when I was, I don't know, I must have been 12, we built a chair together.
He was very patient with me and helped me through every step.
And that chair that we built looked a lot like, well, what this one used to look like.
He made things that people used and enjoyed.
He'd come up with an idea in his mind and he'd build it with his own two hands.
I don't make anything, Rosie.
I just sell the wood other people use to make stuff.
I don't know.
I hear I missed quite the event.
Oh, the fire.
Yeah, not something people around here want to repeat.
I hope you'll overlook that I let myself in.
What brings you back early? I need to finalize arrangements.
This is a large office.
I wonder if you'd allow us to use it.
For your inquiry.
Andrew, given that we have a history, tell me, because this inquiry isn't adding up.
Now, I was 10 feet from Nathan when the gunshot happened and I promise, as I've stated on the record, it was done by the book.
So tell me, what's this all about? A Mountie died.
I think that warrants a review.
I couldn't help but notice that you and Nathan aren't all that close.
We've crossed paths.
That's funny.
That's how he put it.
Bill, I wouldn't have achieved my rank if it weren't for you.
You were a good mentor.
I trust you'll see your council wasn't wasted.
What appears to be holding a grudge.
You didn't learn that from me.
May the Royal Northwest Mounties count on the use of your office? It may.
Much appreciated.
This should go without saying, but since you were present during the shooting you will be called in as a witness.
Woo! Woo-hoo-hoo-hoo! Who is that Mountie? [KNOCKING.]
Please come in.
Please have a seat.
What is it you have there? HELEN: Looks like a Mountie.
My friend made that for Jack.
A Mountie.
Constable Grant? A Mountie.
My late husband.
Yes, I believe Lucas mentioned.
HELEN: I found nothing so difficult in life as being a mother.
I think it's because I never discovered what seems to come so naturally to you.
The joy of it.
I have moments where I can't recognize the joy in anything.
But that's when I find it most important to surround myself with people who love me.
They help.
Helen, why are you here? I regret putting you in a position of having to maintain my confidence about Lucas's father.
Thank you.
I should have said so earlier in a forthright manner, but in the way that you know only how to be honest.
I don't know how to be any other way than this.
Being vulnerable, to be exactly who you are, it's understandable you'd be afraid.
But you are an intelligent, thoughtful woman.
Do you show that side of yourself to your husband? No.
Not for a very long time.
Why? What's stopping you? If your husband doesn't love you for exactly who you are then that isn't love, and perhaps he doesn't deserve you.
But if you are unsure whether you've shown each other your true hearts then you may want to try again.
Love needs to be nurtured and cared for.
True love is always worth fighting for.
It never gives up.
But you may need to be the one to reach out first, in hope.
Go on.
He's not gonna bite.
Thank you for being my friend.
My pleasure.
We need to talk.
Oh, uh, why don't I give you two No, Molly.
We all work together, this includes you.
You ordered me to wrap Ned's ankle without listening to what I had to say about it.
Molly, I'm sorry.
I think it's best if you give us some privacy.
Of course.
- Faith - I'm not finished.
You are Doctor Carson Shepherd while I'm Faith Carter.
I think you're reading into things.
Carson! You have no idea what I went through in Chicago! So tell me.
I wanna hear it.
I went through exactly this! Being told to speak up but not being heard because I was constantly being interrupted! I don't know what it is exactly that you went through but you and I are in no shape to be discussing this right now.
Please? We need to find our way through this.
I don't know what "this" is.
Just tell me what you want.
You say that you value me as a doctor.
You say that I'm gifted, but I don't just want to hear it.
I want to be treated like you mean it.
I'm home! Sweetheart? What is all this? Ta-dah! It's your new workshop.
Obviously, it needs a roof and some walls and perhaps a door, but I thought you could make those yourself.
You turned your special place that I created for you into my special place.
I want you to build and build until your heart's content.
Well, it's spectacular.
I don't know what to say.
Only I'm not sure I remember how to build anything.
Oh, it'll come back to you.
I love you.
You're amazing.
Thank you for always building me up.
Oh, hmm, see what you did there? You made a little play on words.
I did.
Now how about you make me a spice rack? [ENGINE DIES.]
Maybe I am responsible.
I was there.
I saw what happened.
You are not responsible.
Maybe I should have let the prisoner go.
I I don't know.
Now you're talking in hindsight like you're throwing in the towel.
You're sure Hargraves doesn't have an axe to grind with you? Yeah.
Why don't I believe you? Stay out of any more explosions.
I'll do my best.
Lucas? My mother was determined to catch the last stage off.
She apologizes for having to leave in such a rush and she promises to get in touch soon regarding your manuscript.
My family's never been very gracious about goodbyes.
Is she heading to San Francisco? Home.
Something's happened.
Maybe she spoke with my father.
I don't know.
But she says that she would like to reconcile with him.
Elizabeth, what upset me about not knowing my parents had separated wasn't just that you didn't tell me.
It was that I thought that they loved each other.
Perhaps they did at a time.
I don't know, Lucas.
Perhaps they still do.
How do you lose that? I can only tell you what I told your mother.
Love has to be fought for and maybe she needed to be the one to reach out first.
What would you know about it? That was cruel.
