When Calls The Heart Season 8 Included Mentions Of Abigail Stanton
After a couple of seasons of silence on the character of Abigail, it did turn out that she was mentioned on several occasions in When Calls The Heart Season 8. The most meaningful was when Gowan talked about her to Ned. “When I sit at my desk and I look out my window across at the cafe and I see her name, I’ve got nothing but regret.”
The season ended with Gowan heading out. Will He bring Abigail Stanton back to Hope Valley? It seems that the show’s producers have always allowed this possibility. They wrote Abigail’s storyline and departure as something that was not permanent, as they did when Jack Lissing left the show. That door has stayed open, if only just a crack.
Moreover, Hearties, do you think that Lori Loughlin will return to the top Hallmark series?
