When the Heart Calls Season 9 Episode 6 review

Hallmark’s When Calls the Heart has returned for Season 9 Episode 6. In this episode titled “Past, Present, Future” we see new romances slowly blossoming, both for adults and teenagers. For this review of When Calls the Heart, I give the MVP to Ben Rosenbaum, who plays Mike, and also to Andrea Brooks as Faith. Rosenbaum really shone in this episode as his character struggled with a new job and even considered the possibility of a new romance. And Brooks was absolutely adorable navigating the awkwardness (and fun) of a new potential suitor in the wake of Carson’s departure.

This story is a review and synopsis for When Calls the Heart Season 9 Episode 6 so there will be SPOILERS below.


Mike & Faith’s romance was the highlight of this week’s episode

Mike and Faith’s awkward but potentially blossoming romance was the real highlight of this week’s episode for me.

Mike is already biting off a bit more than he can chew with his mayoral duties while the foundry people try to sneak behind his back to put up billboards and Hope Valley faces its first traffic jams. But I think with time Mike will definitely rise to the occasion, even if Lee and Bill don’t realize at first that he’s the best man for the job.

It was nice to see Bill regain his composure at the end of the episode and go from a more patronizing and jealous attitude towards Mike to deciding that they really are allies. He will take Mike under his wing and help him figure out the ropes. (It will also be interesting to see how Mike takes on the situation as he confronts Jerome Smith’s possible desire to reopen the mine. I think we’ll see how Mike takes on that in a surprisingly strong way.)

But what most intrigued me about this episode was an unexpected potential romance that blossomed between Mike and Faith! Mike begins by complimenting Faith on her hair, invites her over to dinner to discuss something he needs help with, and gives her an awkward wave from across the street. I’m not sure if that means Mike and Fiona are really just friends, or if the writers are preparing to start another love triangle in Hope Valley. I know I wasn’t expecting this development, but it was a lot of fun to watch.

My only complaint (and it’s a small one) is that I wanted to see Mike and Faith have dinner together. I wondered if Faith would think it was more of a date and Mike would seek her advice on something mayoral. I’m a bit disappointed we didn’t see their dinner and I wonder if maybe a scene was cut.

Both Ben Rosenbaum and Andrea Brooks shone in their scenes together. They have unexpected chemistry and it’s fun to see Faith getting nervous about a guy now that Carson is out of frame.


Lee finds his calling, but with great power comes great responsibility

Lee seethed with jealousy this episode, even going so far as to write a scathing review of Mike’s job. But he also found that his article was very popular, so he wanted to print more copies of the newspaper until Rosemary had to stop him.

I think Lee will really shine in this reporter/editor role – more than Rosemary expected. But he will have a lot of lessons to learn along the way. It looks like he’s found his calling, he just has to go through some awkward stages before he finds out.

Kavan Smith really nailed his scenes in this episode. It was fun to see that other side of Lee. I think he’s going to be a real cutthroat reporter, he just needs to learn to use his powers for good!


Nathan navigates his new life

Nathan has done a great job navigating his post-Elizabeth life, and the funny, facetious personality Allie had hinted at in the past is finally coming to the surface. It was especially fun to see him and Mei Sou getting closer, but at a leisurely pace as they’ve both been injured before.

I’m most concerned about Nathan’s horse Newton and Bill’s concern that Newton isn’t ridden yet as he is so easily startled. I hope Mei Sou can get through to him and that next week’s preview doesn’t question her ability to work with Nathan’s horse.

Meanwhile, he also has to deal with the growing romance between Allie and Robert. (Though I still think he’s interested in Angela too and we’ll see a love triangle there.)

Jaeda Lily Miller really shone as Allie this week, especially as she spoke to Elizabeth and Nathan about why she fought Robert at the liquor store. Her joke about how well she hit him and how her grandfather would approve was really funny! It’s nice to see that she gets some scenes that show other sides of her character’s personality.


Joseph & Minnie put down deeper roots in Hope Valley

Joseph and Minnie had some cute scenes this week, following last week’s positively glowing scene with Landis. Minnie will try to buy part of the cafe (although I wonder if this will open the door for a scene with Abigail.) Joseph wanted to buy part of Lee’s business, but he’s decided to put that on hold while Minnie she pursues idea.

I like to see how these two interact and support each other. Joseph helping her in the cafe was a really sweet scene. After the recent arrest Joseph made, I’d like to see him in some sort of local law enforcement role, maybe helping Nathan, even though he’s not an official Mountie.


Lucas & Elizabeth continue to be adorable

Meanwhile, Lucas and Elizabeth continue to be just adorable. They took a back seat this episode after stealing the show with their pre-wedding vows last week. It’s nice to see what a strong foundation their relationship has. They may disagree on issues, but do so amicably and with respect for one another. They flirt with each other and really have each other’s backs.

(And can I just say that Luca’s reaction to the etiquette lesson proposal was hilarious? Chris McNally acted that moment perfectly!)

What I found most interesting was Elizabeth’s discussion with Joseph at the end of the episode. She wants to start a book truck and bring books to people who are out in the mountains outside of school hours. My first thought was that this was a very generous, kind-hearted wish. My second thought was concern as to whether she will be traveling alone to the mountains or whether someone will be with her. For now, we know the Pinkertons and Walden have made mild threats in their direction. Would they try to let her travel alone and cause even more trouble?

All in all, this was a great episode. It moved the story along, along with several characters’ storylines, and threw in a few unexpected twists – like a possible romance between Faith and Mike!
