Virgin River: Alexandra Breckenridge stars in season two teaser

WARNING: This story contains spoilers for Virgin River

Virgin River season three could be on the cards for Netflix and fans are desperate to see what happened to Jack Sheridan (played by Martin Henderson). In the season two finale, Mel Monroe (Alexandra Breckenridge) discovered Jack had been shot, and he was barely alive. Hope McCrea (Annette O’Toole) had been meddling in Jack’s private affairs, and fans are wondering whether the two are related.

Is Jack Sheridan related to Hope?

The second season of Virgin River was full of drama as Jack was forced to come to terms with his girlfriend Charmaine’s (Lauren Hammersley) pregnancy.

He later found out she was having twins, which made the messy situation all the more unbearable, as his heart remained with Mel.

At the same time, he had been dealing with the conflict at the drugs farm, having lost his old friend Brady (Ben Hollingsworth) to his rivals.

Jack had visited the site in secret to talk with Spencer (Chad Rook) in a bid to frame the gang leader and take him down.

But fans believe he may have ended up too deep in the criminal underworld, as he got himself shot in the final episode.

Jack had also been struggling to rebuild his relationship with close friend Hope, after she went behind his back and read a private letter from girlfriend Charmaine.

Charmaine had asked Hope personally to deliver a letter to Jack, which was presumed to have revealed she was pregnant.

Hope then felt it was her duty to tell Jack the news personally, as Charmaine had refused to speak to him in person.

Hope’s act did not go down well with Jack, who accused her of getting too involved in his personal life, and he shut her out.

Over the course of the season it took a lot for Hope to earn back Jack’s trust, but she could still not help herself from meddling in his business.

Charmaine ended up revealing to Hope that she had plans to move in with family once the twins were born, and she had not planned on telling Jack until after the move.

Hope was distraught, and felt Jack needed to find out as soon as possible, as she did not want Charmaine to pull the rug from under his feet.

Hope has always referred to Jack as “family”, but their relationship has never been explored in depth.

She is the mayor of Virgin River, and there has been nothing to suggest she is a direct relation of Jack’s.

Instead, fans have simply assumed her use of the word “family” has not been used in a literal sense, and instead she is just a very close mother-figure.

Ahead of the release of season two, viewers had been discussing whether Jack is actually related to Hope, with one suggesting on Reddit he may be “secretly adopted”.

Greenbear1 said they believed Hope was Jack’s mother. Chica_408 had said: “What is the connection between Jack and Hope? Mother & son? An older sister?”

Chapterthirtythree responded: “I didn’t even think that there might be a blood connection between Hope and Jack. That would really make more sense why Hope is obsessed with his private business.”

Late2reddit19 suggested she could be his aunt, or she has a close connection with one of Jack’s family members.

Hope’s character has been described as brash and blunt, but her love for the town and her dedication to the residents is what makes her special.

In season two, she was dealing with her own personal issues as she suffered a minor heart attack, and started to question her own future.

She asked her former husband, Doc Mullins (Tim Matheson) for a divorce, but the pair later rekindled their relationship and agreed to renew their vows.

At the end of the season, Doc was about to tell Hope some tragic news about his own health, having just returned from seeing a doctor.

Before he could reveal the news, the Virgin River residents surprised them with an engagement party, so fans are left wondering what exactly he has to tell her.

Whatever the news is, it means Hope will find herself in a difficult position and she will be relying on people like Jack for emotional support.

With this in mind, there is a chance the full extent of Jack and Hope’s relationship will be explored in season three.

Hope has always felt she must act in Jack’s best interests, and it would not come as a surprise if she was directly related to him in some way.
