WHY ELIZABETH THATCHER SHOULD CHOOSE MOUNTIE JACK THORNTON OVER CHARLES 'DEADLY DULL' KENSINGTON

On Hallmark Channel's When Calls the Heart, Season 2 ended in a cliffhanger with Charles, a childhood friend & successful businessman employed by Elizabeth's shipping tycoon father, proposing marriage to the schoolteacher just as Jack, her Mountie beau from her new home in Hope Valley, was en route to ask for her hand. What will Elizabeth decide?
  1. β€’
    Jack has saved Elizabeth's life 3 times so far in the short time that he's known her. First, when Mr Spurlock threatened her after she discovered his lie about the church fire. Then, when the Tolliver gang kidnapped her & her naΓ―ve sister. And, finally, when the falling beam in the mine had J & E rolling for their lives. PLUS that grotesque πŸ•·!!!
  2. β€’
    Jack is certainly handsome, oops I mean, HANDY! My bad. (But seriously he is!) For instance, he saved the baby birds from burning to a crisp in the Millers' chimney. 🐣πŸ₯He also fixed the furnace AND the window in Elizabeth's schoolhouse. He couldn't let her get cold, you know. πŸ’¨β„οΈ
  3. β€’
    And speaking of the schoolhouse, he built the whole entire thing for her. Okay, maaaaybe he had a little help from the townspeople, but he sweated the hardest, I'm sure. πŸ”¨πŸ’¦β›ͺοΈπŸ’’
  4. β€’
    And we all know that schoolhouse NEVER woulda happened without the Constable's giant heart & ma-jah generosity. β€οΈπŸ’΅πŸ’΅πŸ’΅ Sure, it's a little smaller than the saloon, & enrollment must've dropped for the 2nd term but, hey, when's the last time someone did something that amazing for you, huh?
  5. β€’
    Okay, back to that 'can't let my woman get cold' thing: no matter how many times Ms Thatcher asks for a blanket, he is right there, on it, I tell you. Anyone else just get the chills right now? You know, the good chills πŸ˜‰
  6. β€’
    Jack is a giver. He gives Elizabeth sweet gifts ALL. THE. TIME. For instance, the cow, errr school bell. πŸ”” And, oh my goodness, that drawing! Like, is he for real?
  7. β€’
    And speaking of the drawing, Jack is obvs artistic. I mean, the comet! πŸ’«πŸŒ πŸŒŒAnd the backdrop! πŸŒ„With the hidden stick of dynamite. πŸ”ŽπŸ’£ Wowza! Could you just imagine all the wall paintings that he will create in their future house? I can! 🎨 πŸŒ…πŸ―πŸŒ‡πŸ–Ό
  8. β€’
    Jack is not just crafty with a paintbrush. He's got the sewing needle going on, my #Hearties friends! Just look at how quickly he did that whipstitch on the Founders Day costume. Ladies be like 😳 πŸ˜πŸ’“
  9. β€’
    Jack also has some horsey skills. And he ain't afraid to teach them to Elizabeth. For free, of course. Well, not 'entirely' free, but it's a very affordable payment plan πŸ’‹πŸ’‹ πŸ‡πŸ΄
  10. β€’
    And remember how helpful Jack was when Elizabeth thought Abigail was missing? He knew right where she was, nodding off with her bad dough in her soon-to-open cafe. Which, coincidentally, helped Elizabeth solve the problem with her reading student. What luck! Thanks, Jack! πŸ” πŸ”‘
  11. β€’
    More helpfulness on display: the note. On her forehead. In the saloon. While she snored. I mean, slept. 😴
  12. β€’
    Jack also helped Elizabeth & Abigail move to their new home. And was in the perfect place at the perfect time when Elizabeth got clumsy & fell over a pile of boxes. It's almost like it was planned that way. πŸ“¦πŸ“¦πŸ“¦πŸ˜±
  13. β€’
    It wasn't the first time that Jack carried Elizabeth's things for her. Remember her crates full of books & clothes & that journal? Yep, he helped her with those too, even though he pretended the whole time to be annoyed with her. Nice try, Jack. πŸ’ͺ🏼
  14. β€’
    And it wasn't the last time either. Lord knows Elizabeth needs ALL that luggage when traveling. πŸ‘œπŸ‘œπŸ‘œπŸšž
  15. β€’
    More about that helpfulness: remember when Jack took that intelligence test to help Elizabeth with her reading student? Although now that I think about it, we never did hear the test scores. Hmmm πŸ“πŸ– 🐷
  16. β€’
    That time that Mrs Thatcher fell ill? πŸ€’Jack became the comforter. And then the escorter to Hamilton. πŸ‘« Okay, so escorter is not a real word. But Jack is a real man, so there.
  17. β€’
    Okay, you know how they say the quickest way to a man's heart is through his stomach? Elizabeth doesn't seem to care. And Jack is totally fine with that! Crazy, I know. Look at him devour that chicken fried steak. Devour is used in the figurative sense, of course. But yeah, the Mountie is a risk taker. Of his health. For her heart. That's love! πŸ—
  18. β€’
    Jack arranged for the oldest selfie to date. The man's a trendsetter, what can I say? πŸ“·
  19. β€’
    And that class picture? Need I say more? πŸ§€
  20. β€’
    Hey, remember that time Jack brought Elizabeth some cornbread from the saloon? It's the thought that counts 🌽🍞
  21. β€’
    Who knew it was so hard to pump well water? Not Elizabeth, that's for sure. Jack came to the rescue, yet again. So kind, he is. πŸ’¦
  22. β€’
    Oh yes, and the firewood! He chopped that up AFTER sleeping the night on the floor of a dirty, stinky barn. Could you imagine? πŸ”₯
  23. β€’
    Annnnnd speaking of chopping. Ahem. Eyes to yourself, Ms Thatcher! 🚿
  24. β€’
    He's also an excellent bedtime storyteller. Or so it would seem ... πŸ“–πŸ˜΄πŸ’€πŸ’€
  25. β€’
    Okay, let's get serious now. Jack protected Elizabeth from the skunk of a man, Billy Hamilton. He knocked him right off that stolen horse & TKO'd him straight in the eye socket. Or somewhere in that vicinity. All for Ms Thatcher's honor. What a guy! πŸ΄πŸ‘ŠπŸΌπŸ‘€πŸ’πŸ»
  26. β€’
    And not only is Jack the bear to Elizabeth's deer, but he once fought off a grizzly with his bare hands. (No pun intended.) And has the scar to prove it. Or so the story goes ... 🐻
  27. β€’
    The Mountie is a snake charmer too. Except for that slithery snake, Charles. Ain't nobody wanna charm him. Right, Elizabeth? 🐍
  28. β€’
    Jack will fiercely defend his family. Evidenced by the ugly spat in Hamilton. But, ummm, Elizabeth? He was right. And isn't that the kind of man you would want as the father of your children? I thought so. πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§β€πŸ‘¦
  29. β€’
    Who else was relieved to find out Elizabeth's knee was just bruised in that falling-beam-and-roll-for-their-lives incident? You know, the "other" knee. Good thing Jack was there to verify it.
  30. β€’
    And that was only after the man carried her to safety. Where is that dog anyways? 🐢
  31. β€’
    And the first date! But let's talk first about the request for that date, shall we? I'll let the pictures speak for themselves. Oh my! πŸ”₯
  32. β€’
    Okay so NOW let's discuss the first date. The corsage. The romantic dinner. The victrola. The dance! You go, Jack! πŸ’ƒπŸ»
  33. β€’
    And finally, Jack has a special ring for Elizabeth. Granted, she may not have seen it yet and it's prolly not as spectacular as that rich dude's, but the girl has enough cash in her own right. And Jack has earned his money nobly. Can't say the same for Charles. Who knows with that guy? Pshhhhh. The choice is obvious. πŸ’ŽπŸ’πŸ’ πŸ‘°πŸ»πŸ’’
