Virgin River Season 5: Top Spoilers
According to TV Guide, On Jack and Mel’s reaction to the baby news, stating, “I think Mel feels, obviously, lied to and betrayed,” Breckendridge said. “I’m sure there’s an underlying sense of relief that she probably will never talk about with Jack. I think Jack is absolutely devastated because he really invested in these children. It’s crushing for him.”
The second spoiler for Melissa and Nick’s involvement in Jack’s business, states, “It’s an interesting twist. Jack and Mel are such honest people that I’m surprised,” Breckenridge informed TV Guide. “I’m really curious to know if Nick knows that Melissa is a fentanyl kingpin. I don’t actually know that. Obviously, Nick has invested in this airstream glamping business that Jack is starting, so I think Melissa may become a part of that. How that ties into any danger for Jack and Mel, I don’t know!”
On Mel’s life in Virgin River without the clinic: “I don’t think she’s interested in mending any relationship with Cameron. I think she realizes that she has a high-risk pregnancy, and she’s not going to stay at the clinic, and Doc is declining. She’s really worried about the town having a medical facility, so she wants Cameron to stay for that reason alone,” the actress said. “I don’t know what [Mel’s life without the clinic] going to look like. I don’t know what Mel is going to do. She loves her job. She loves caring for people, and I imagine that stepping away from that is going to be very difficult for her.”
