A lot goes down in season four, so there are plenty of lingering questions and plot points that will no doubt be explored in season five. WARNING: Spoilers ahead!
Toward the end of season three, a paternity test finally confirms Mel’s unborn baby’s father is Jack, not her late husband. Just when all appears well with the now-engaged lovebirds, Charmaine, Jack’s ex who’s also pregnant with his twins, drops a massive bomb on them. When she calls him in a panic, Mel and Jack go to her and find her on the floor in pain, and her dire situation prompts her to confess that Jack isn’t actually the father of her babies. In season five, we can probably expect to see the aftermath of Charmaine’s big reveal and how that will affect Jack’s involvement in the lives of her twins. Moreover, we’ll get to watch Mel and Jack navigate their own pregnancy and maybe a trip down the aisle now that they’ve gotten engaged.
Hope, who gets in a massive car accident in season three and is still reeling from the traumatic experience throughout season four, finally agrees to an additional home health aide. Season five could explore her journey to recovery now that she’s agreed to get proper treatment.
Meanwhile, Brie’s sexually abusive ex, Don, reappears in season four and threatens her to sign an NDA, but she shuts him down, stands her ground, and promises she’ll be pressing charges against him, so fans can definitely expect that to be explored next season.
Finally, it’s revealed in season four that crime boss Melissa Montgomery is Nick’s — aka Jack’s glamping business investor’s — sister. We can totally see Jack’s business getting into murky territory now that he’s unwittingly joined hands with the criminal head honcho.
Here’s what “Virgin River” has teased of season five’s plot: “Issues of motherhood push Mel to make a big decision about her future at the clinic while her pregnancy unexpectedly sparks an emotional connection to her past,” the logline reads. “To further prove himself to Mel, Jack squares off with some long-overdue confrontations — with his own demons, and of course, Charmaine. And as Doc and Hope’s respective impairments throw their identities into question, the doctor and the mayor must find solace in their community, in their young new family, and in each other.”
