Titled “There But For Fortune,” this episode was written by Heartland’s Showrunner, Heather Conkie, and directed by Dean Bennett. If you’re a fan of Heartland you’ll know that Dean has directed more Heartland episodes than anyone else. If you’re a regular viewer of Heartland you’ll also remember how past episodes play a part in setting up what happens in this Sunday’s new episode.
Remember 701? Prince Ahmed Al Sahid, played by season guest star Jade Hassoune, returns with a new horse - Zeus - for Amy to work with, much to the displeasure of his lead groom, Adrian (played by Shaun Benson).
Remember 702? Ty discovers a ranch that he and Amy find ideal for them, but it is quickly purchased. Well… sometimes sales fall through. Heh heh.
Remember last season? Lou started writing her Mom’s the Word blog (you know, the one you can read online right here?). Well, it has caught the eye of a book publisher, and Lou’s writing career is about to take off, even if the news falls flat on the rest of the family.
Remember 418? Happily married Caleb and Ashley left for British Columbia and then in 504 Caleb returned without her? Well, guess who decides to show up, just when Caleb and Nicole are starting to warm up to each other. No need to guess, as I’m going to tell you; Cindy Busby, who plays Ashley Stanton, is back after two and a half years away from the series.
