Hearties, it is almost here! The final episode of When Calls The Heart Season 9 is upon us. What do we know about the upcoming episode called “Rock, A Bye, Baby”?
Could the unexpected commas in the name of the episode be another clue?
John Tinker (Chesapeake Shores, Chicago Hope) wrote the script. Peter DeLuise (A Brush With Love, Garage Sale Mysteries) is the director.
What Happens In When Calls The Heart Season 9?
According to the Hallmark synopsis, the tensions in Hope Valley remain high. Meanwhile, Elizabeth (Erin Krakow) is concerned about her relationship with Lucas (Chris McNally).
Meanwhile, Bill (Jack Wagner) is helping Henry (Martin Cummins) navigate the fallout from the coal mine explosion.
Lastly, Rosemary (Pascale Hutton), and Lee (Kavan Smith) get some news.
What Does Episode Title ‘Rock, A Bye, Baby’ Mean?
The episode title of When Calls The Heart Season 9, Episode 12 is “Rock, A Bye, Baby.” At first glance, it seems to be referring to the children’s lullaby.
However, that is called “Rock-A-Bye Baby” without the two commas. Could the writers have given us a hint about this upcoming episode? We know that the writing in the episode “Turn Of The Page” had multiple meanings.
It would make sense that this WCTH finale title has clues to the episode. What could they possibly be?
Let’s start with the obvious. That is the word “baby,” and the title is a reference to the lullaby. We know that Rosemary is pregnant. Yet, Leland doesn’t know he is a father yet. How will she tell him?
Second is the word “rock.” There could be several meanings to that word. It could refer to something physical like the coal mine or a quarry.
The word “rock” could also mean that something could happen that will abruptly and dramatically change their world. What sort of news will disrupt Hope Valley? Or is this an individual whose world will be rocked?
Lastly is the coupled words “a bye.” Is someone saying goodbye? one of the trailers shows Lee running into the burning saloon. Could we be saying goodbye to him? Is Kavan Smith leaving the series?
What about Mayor Hickam (Ben Rosenbaum). Is he resigning from his elected position?
However, one big possibility is Bill Avery. There is a photo from the upcoming episode where Dr. Carter (Andrea Brooks) looks at Bill very seriously. He has been coughing, and he is spitting up blood.
Bill has been more concerned about the possible coal mine reopening, thus ignoring Faith’s instructions to get that X-ray to see what is happening.
This leads to the story that has been simmering since October when GAC Media CEO Bill Abbott stated that Jack would be joining their “family.” Could this mean that Jack is leaving for the former Hallmark CEO’s new network?
Could Bill Avery die in this final episode?
