Virgin River Season 2 Episode eight Evaluation: Blindspots


Thriller has taken over Virgin River. 

Preacher and Connie have their secret and now Mel and Doc have a city outbreak to deal with.

A minimum of somebody is completely happy on Virgin River Season 2 Episode 8.

We did not count on this second to come back, however Lizzie and Ricky appear to be the one completely happy couple proper now.

We had been positive this teenage romance would result in heartbreak, however they are surely smitten with each other. Each of them admitting they had been nonetheless virgins was such a candy second. 

It was additionally stunning, as a result of Connie made Lizzie out to look like this wild baby who was despatched to Virgin River as a result of she stays in bother. It simply goes to indicate dad and mom are ALWAYS tougher on women, particularly the ladies who’re snug of their pores and skin and go after what they need.

Lizzie’s pursuit of contraception was her being a accountable younger girl and she or he needs to be recommended for it. 

Connie ought to actually be grateful.

We had been appreciative of Connie being the one with sense within the unlikely alliance of her and Preacer. Each of them are beginning to be irritating with this entire factor.

Now, Connie is correct about her being the right alibi. Preacher is honorable for not wanting her to implicate herself on this entire factor, however she had some extent. She can be the credible alibi.

Connie: I’m what they might contemplate a reputable alibi. We’re not associated. We’re not mates, and also you don’t work for me.
Preacher: I contemplate us mates.
Connie: Sure, we’re pleasant. There’s a distinction. The police won’t ever suspect that I’m overlaying for you, which is the very best line of protection for you and Paige.

However WHY are they discussing it in the course of the bar?

Jack’s is as busy as at all times (which is exceptionally so this season, in comparison with final). So, why within the identify of all that’s good are they discussing her being an alibi all willy nilly in the course of the bar?

They’re actually discussing it whereas Preacher stands behind the bar and there are individuals surrounding them.

It’s virtually like they need to get caught.

Additionally, Connie informed Preacher to come back to her place wearing one thing he might get soiled, however we by no means noticed it occur. Will they present the large alibi plan subsequent episode or is it simply one other thriller?

Virgin River already has a significant thriller on their fingers.

Okay, we all know Jamie is a restaurant proprietor in San Francisco, however why on this planet is she included within the dialogue about what induced the outbreak?

Jamie has been on the town all of what? A pair weeks perhaps? Her being in that brainstorm session was simply misplaced. She remains to be a little bit of a stranger. We’ve not even seen her work together with Jack earlier than this, however we’re alleged to imagine he desires her in on this? 

It made no sense.

It additionally is not sensible for him to proceed to pursue this vendetta in opposition to Calvin on his personal.

Going out to Spencer’s trailer by himself was simply reckless. He’s obsessive about taking Calvin down, however at what value? It might have been a setup or somebody might have seen him heading there. 

Look, if Calvin finds out that I ratted him out, I’m lifeless. My household is lifeless.


Calvin is clearly sick of Jack’s interference in his enterprise, which we noticed with George’s undercover unemployment.

This interference is beginning to have an effect on Brady, additionally.

For a second there, it appeared like Brady was strolling in direction of his personal shallow grave. It was a grave, although, simply not his. To show his loyalty, Calvin desires Brady to kill Spencer for telling his enterprise to Jack.

Calvin: See, if I don’t really feel I can belief you…
Brady: You may. I swear. Simply inform me what I have to do and I’ll do it.
Calvin: I want you to indicate me I can belief you.

For some motive, we do not imagine Brady will undergo with it. Brady is a knucklehead, sure, however all he desires is to make some simple, quick cash. Killing a person in chilly blood would not seem to be one thing he would do.

Additionally, Calvin and the others left Brady there alone with Spencer. Nobody stayed to ensure he completed the job and the digital camera reduce earlier than viewers bought to see it.

This Fanatic is inclined to imagine Brady is an efficient man deep down and will not undergo with it.

It will eat Jack as much as know Brady has gone that far. Heaven is aware of Jack is coping with sufficient.

Jack is coming to phrases with the chance he and Mel could also be nothing greater than mates, though we viewers don’t settle for that in any respect.

Hope, I used to be with Mel the morning after the anniversary, and I imply she was destroyed. Look I’ve to come back to phrases with the truth that she isn’t prepared for something however friendship. And she or he could by no means be.


The poor man looks as if he’s about to accept Charmaine. Whereas he says he would not be together with her, if he moved her and their youngsters into his home, it will simply be a matter of time earlier than he fell into outdated patterns and he wouldn’t be completely happy in any respect.

Whereas he is planning to purchase their home, Charmaine is contemplating transferring away.

As predicted within the final episode’s evaluate, Charmaine is uninterested in Jack mendacity to her and would not really feel like a precedence, so she is contemplating leaving. 

Poor Hope.

Charmaine: My aunt has invited me and the twins to maneuver to Portland and dwell together with her and my uncle.
Hope: Oh, good God!
Charmaine: And I’m significantly contemplating it.
Hope: Charmaine, I can’t know this, and now I do know this, and I can’t un-know one thing that I already know!

She was doing so properly at staying out of Jack’s enterprise. He was even opening as much as her once more once they had been on their home searching mission. 

Charmaine needed to go and mess up all that goodwill by telling her this secret, even after Hope begged her to not. Doc didn’t imagine Hope was harmless in all of this and stormed out when she informed him. 

Doc’s response is well defined: He’s sick.

On Virgin River Season 2 Episode 7, he’s having bother studying his ticket whereas out to dinner. This alone, is just not an enormous deal, nevertheless it was solely the primary signal.

When the clinic is overflowing with sufferers, he insists Mel do the consumption with sufferers whereas he does all of the therapy. 

He snaps on each Mel and Hope over seemingly petty points. 

When Doc storms out on Hope, he appears to be like disoriented. It seems Doc is having some situation together with his eyes. Is the episode title, “Blindspots,” a touch?

Please do not let or not it’s a tumor.

Over to you, Fanatics!

What do you assume is occurring with Doc? Do you assume Jack ought to quit on Mel? Hold forth within the feedback and tell us your ideas!
