I really like this episode. :)
~Elizabeth bought a house! She decided to move out on her own after having been living with Abigail since her arrival in Hope Valley. (Well, aside from the short night she spent in the teacherage before it burned down. ;))
It was getting a little crowded for Elizabeth at Abigail's. With those two plus Clara and Cody, there just wasn't a whole lot of space for everyone. So, Elizabeth decided it was time to have her own place.
~Jack takes Elizabeth to dinner. They go to the jail where Jack has things all set up. It's so sweet, but they don't exactly get all the quiet that they're looking for.
~Jack wants to build a house. He's kind of thinking long term for him and Elizabeth!
~Jack gives Elizabeth housewarming gift!
~Rosemary has taken it upon herself to redecorate Lee's office. Later she assumes he's not doing well financially and decides to help him save money by cutting costs.
~Cody is adjusting to being without his sister, Becky, and with living with Abigail. In this episode he is a bit bratty. He has been through a lot but still. He's late to school, not doing his assignments, and he broke the vase that Jack gave to Elizabeth!! Jack ends up having a little talk with him and things start to get better.
~Jack takes the boys on a camping trip. The girls want to go too, but the trip is just for boys. So Elizabeth decides to take the girls camping. They all end up in about the same place and after all the children go to bed Jack and Elizabeth talk by the campfire. It's so sweet!
~Mr. Gowen sells his share of Abigail's Café! I would've thought that that was good, but this new guy is horrible. He wants Abigail to get this and that and replace things that don't need replacing. He's just awful. Mr. Gowen was actually better.
Well, Abigail ends up not having this man as a partner because someone else comes in and buys Mr. Gowen's share.....Bill Avery.
Abigail's not too sure about this arrangement at first given her and Bill's history, but it ends up working out great! I love it when Bill tells Abigail that he bought her share. She comes downstairs and there's Bill in her kitchen making eggs! I just love their little conversation!
Abigail: "Bill, what are you doing here?"
Bill: "Making breakfast."
Abigail: "With my pans and my eggs?"
Bill: "Actually, they’re our pans and our eggs."
Abigail: "Excuse me?"
Bill: "I’m your new partner. I bough Gowen’s share of the café."
~Jesse is trying to get Frank to come back to the gang. The leader of the gang, Jake Garrison, wants to get Frank back and goes through a lot to try and make it happen.
This causes Frank to draw away from Abigail a little.
~Clara and Jesse start spending some time together.
~Elizabeth is getting her new place all fixed up and ready to move into. Jack really wants to help, but Elizabeth wants to do it on her own. While at the store getting supplies, Elizabeth, who is just a bit overwhelmed, runs into Rosemary. They start talking and Rosemary says that she thought that Elizabeth would be letting Jack do a lot of the repairs. Elizabeth still isn't sure because she wants to be able to do things herself. Rosemary tells her that "men are peculiar creatures. They like to feel needed, and important". Then she says:
~Later, Elizabeth is at her new place working and Jack comes by. He asks again if Elizabeth needs help. Elizabeth, remembering what Rosemary said, decides to give Jack something to do. Jack catches on to what she's doing and as he's heading off to do what she asks he says:
~Mr. Gowen and a few other people decide to fire Frank as pastor. Abigail gets upset because of the secret meeting and they vote again. This time they vote yes and Frank stays!
This episode is just filled with such great stuff!! I really like it!
