Another season of Virgin River means another season of drama for Mel Monroe, and we wouldn’t have it any other way. (Sorry Mel!)
But if you thought the Netflix drama would go easy on its leading lady now that she’s with child, think again. From multiple near-fatal emergencies to a pair of jaw-dropping paternity twists, the show’s 12-episode fourth season kept Mel plenty busy, for better or worse.
Of course, drama can also be a good thing, as evidenced by at least one wonderful (and incredibly long-awaited) moment featured on this list.
(Needless to say, if you haven’t binged Virgin River Season 4 yet, you might want to turn around now. It’s nothing but spoilers moving forward!)
Read on for star Alexandra Breckenridge‘s take on eight of the season’s biggest Mel-centric twists, then drop a comment with your own thoughts, as well as your hopes for Season 5.
