WCTH Writers Wanted To Show Elizabeth Opening Up To Change

WCTH Season 11 just premiered on Sunday. Most of all, it seemed to kick off a new path for Hope Valley’s school teacher Elizabeth Thornton. It all started with her pal Rosemary (Pascale Hutton) and a pair of shears.

According to Erin Krakow, who recently spoke to People, this was intentional. Erin, who is an executive producer of the Hallmark series, along with the show’s writers, wanted to kick off the season with a major change.

We were trying to figure out a story that would illustrate Elizabeth’s desire to create some real change in her life.

She elaborated more to the “infinite possibilities” that will open up for the Hallmark show’s main character.

She’s open to infinite possibilities. And so we went back and forth with a few ideas, but the haircut felt like something that was so visual and so bold for Elizabeth that it would be just something new for our viewers to get to see.

When Elizabeth tells her friend she is ready for a change, Rosemary is thrilled. When she was sitting in the chair, ready to be shorn, Elizabeth confirmed she was happy to dump Lucas (Chris McNally). Furthermore, she was confident that cutting off her hair was the right decision.

I am, and I know I made the right decision. I’m so grateful that everyone who matters to me is safe.

With that final statement, Rosemary got the deed done. Now, Elizabeth is ready for her future.
