Expect the unexpected! When Virgin river season 3 debuts, it won’t immediately answer the most important question. In fact, the mystery of who shot Jack (Martin Henderson) will remain for all 10 episodes.
“It’s a big part of the season: who shot him and what’s going on. Your friend Mike (Marco Grazzzini) He ends up staying in town and trying to investigate and find out who the shooter is, while also trying to prevent Jack from taking the law into his own hands, “said the showrunner. Sue tenney counted exclusively Us weekly. “There will be an arrest at the end of season 3, but not everything is as it seems. The story does not end with the arrest. “
While filming was obviously difficult for Jack, it was also “extremely traumatic” for Mel (Alexandra breckenridge) because she lost her husband.
“That was the main reason she didn’t want to be in a relationship with Jack because she was terrified, petrified of losing someone she loved again,” she said. American horror story alum, 39, said. “I think there was a lot of emotional trauma for her and for Jack, having served in Iraq and mentioned all that violence to him.”
As Jack tries to stay out of trouble, he concentrates on growing his relationship with Mel.
“Mel and Jack have shown that they love each other, that’s undeniable. However, each of them has a baggage from their past and we have had no qualms about sharing it and sharing it with them, ”explained Tenney. “This season, their relationship is about digging deeper into that. It is the relationship that started with a crush and then goes on to live together. As it becomes more serious, it becomes more intimate. “
However, the closer Jack and Mel get, the more “new challenges” present themselves.
“In season 3, at the end, they will face an obstacle that could possibly change everything,” added the producer. “I think generally in season 3, it’s like they’re forced to contemplate whether their current relationship is strong enough to survive the past.”
One of those challenges is the fact that Mel, who suffered the loss of pregnancy with her late husband, still wants to have a family.
“Mel still wants to have a baby, although she doesn’t know if she can. Jack is going to have twins with another woman, so it’s very difficult, ”Breckenridge explained. “We will have to go on that journey and see if their love prevails and if Jack is depressed about having another child. [Three children] sounds a lot! “
