John Tinker, showrunner of Hallmark’s When Calls the Heart, recently teased new developments in Nathan’s love life, particularly those involving Mei Sou and Faith. He also shared why they are taking things slowly with Nathan’s story.
He said we should “watch Faith” this season.
in a (n Interview with Hearties fans on YouTube, Tinker was asked if Faith disapproved of the growing interest between Mei Sou and Nathan. They noticed a scene in a previous episode where Faith looked slightly concerned when she saw Mei Sou and Nathan spending time together. His answer was interesting and not quite as direct as you might expect.
“We had some ideas in the author’s room [about] what we wanted to do with Mei and Nathan,” Tinker said, adding that Faith’s reaction was “not unlike a character or a real person who knows a little bit more about Mei than Nathan does and sees what’s unfolding.”
He added that Faith’s story will be interesting this season.
“Right now, Faith is unsure how she’s feeling,” he said. “And even Mei and Nathan are a little unsure… But Faith, it’s going to be interesting. Watch Faith this season. Not just Faith and her reaction to it, but like I said… Andrea [Brooks] just doing a fantastic job this season and it’s very busy… It’s going to unfold, it’s going to evolve…”
He said Kevin McGarry wanted Nathan’s romantic future to slowly unfold
In a separate Heart to Heart interview with Hearties fans on Youtube After Episode 3 aired, Tinker went into more details about Nathan’s future love life, including the fact that Kevin McGarry wanted his character to slowly dip back into the world of romance.
“While our characters can be hurt, their hearts may or may not be disregarded, let’s not disregard Kevin’s heart now,” he said, referring to Nathan, the character McGarry plays. “That’s what I can say, the mystery surrounding Mei will continue to unfold. A lot of what Kevin will do this season will be finding that new relationship with Erin (who portrays Elizabeth) and Lucas and with others around him, including women who are dating a very attractive bachelor with a beautiful daughter might be interested.”
He said that Nathan’s storyline will take longer to unfold this season.
“It’s going to take longer to tell Nathan’s story than to tell the Walden story,” he said. “The Walden story with Lucas will wrap up around mid-season, the Nathan story will continue.”
He added that McGarry wanted to take it easy with Nathan.
“By the way, if it’s any consolation to you…Kevin McGarry didn’t want to just jump into a relationship & I think he’s right…” Tinker said. “Just like he can’t make a dime from his relationship with Lucas or Elizabeth, it takes time to heal his heart, his neglected heart… It takes time.”
New episodes of “When Calls the Heart” air every Sunday night at 8 p.m. Eastern/7 a.m. Central on The Hallmark Channel.
