Baby fever is sweeping Virgin River in season 3, as an extremely dramatic trailer for the upcoming third season of the Netflix drama reveals.
The good news, of course, is that Jack survived a bullet. And as soon as he’s back on his feet, the townspeople start doing what they do best: pushing him toward a happy future with Mel. “If you are smart, you will give this lady a ring and start a family,” a local told her.
This same subject is brought up again by Mel, who asks Jack how he would feel about having a baby. And although we didn’t hear her immediate response, he later told her, “I can’t be the one stopping you from becoming a mother.” And it doesn’t look great.
Here are some other interesting developments covered in the trailer for Season 3, which kicks off in all its glory in 10 episodes on Friday, July 9:
* We still don’t know exactly what condition Doc was diagnosed with, but when Mel asks him if he’s going blind, he responds with a “in a nutshell … maybe”.
* Charmaine, who is apparently in a new relationship with a dude named Todd, informs Jack that he is essentially “free” from any fatherly responsibilities.
* The identity of Jack’s gunman also remains a mystery, but he is clearly ready and willing to take the investigation into his own hands.
* And given the heat between her and Jack, we’re surprised it’s taken that long for Mel’s house to burn down, to be honest.
