When Calls the Heart Season 11 Episode 8 Recap

WCTH S11E08 Recap-

When Season 11, Episode 8 of WHEN CALLS THE HEART premieres, Elizabeth (Erin Krakow) and Tom played by Max Lloyd-Jones are outside her house talking about the controversy surrounding the choir money. Tom admits that he doesn’t have enough money to repay everyone. He now knows that Sweeney (John Schneider) was a crook. Elizabeth reassures him that Nathan (Kevin McGarry) has told the police in New York, which makes it more likely that Sweeney will be caught. Tom is sad because he thinks Jack was right when he said he was a jerk, but Elizabeth says Jack never felt that way.

Nathan shows up with the news that Sweeney has been caught by the Mounties and the money that Ned (Hrothgar Mathews) sent him has been returned. Unfortunately, Sweeney lost $300 that choirs from other towns had raised. Liz tells Tom to go have breakfast inside. Lizzie is warned by Nathan that Tom could be charged with theft if he can’t pay back the money. Elizabeth says she’s sorry she didn’t trust Nathan’s gut, but Nathan knows she just wanted to believe in her brother-in-law. He lets her know that he also believes in her gut.

Lee (Kavan Smith) and Rosemary (Pascale Hutton) talk about their day in town. Tomorrow, Lee is going to meet Mayor Maisie Hickam (Anna Hagan), and Rosemary tells her that Nathan has made plans for Clayton Pike (Wesley Salter) to stay at the Hope Valley jail so that she and Bill (Jack Wagner) can talk to him. Elizabeth starts talking again and asks Rosemary to meet her at the schoolhouse for an emergency choir meeting.

At the schoolhouse, Tom, Elizabeth, and Nathan tell the group that Sweeney has been caught and that some of the money has been returned. Joseph asks about the money from other places. Tom tells him that the money from Benson Hills and Jameson is gone, but he is going to personally apologize. Nathan suggests that they hold their own choir event to raise money, and Rosemary and Lee offer to let guests stay at their inn for free. Everyone agrees, so the planning for the event starts.

Lee talks to Maisie, who doesn’t believe in the resort plan. Rosemary walks in and tells Maisie about Sweeney’s scam. She also tells them about the choir festival fundraiser. Maisie can’t believe Tom lost their money, so she storms out to face him.

Outside, Tom is busy making a stage for the fundraiser when Maisie comes up to him and tells him about the money that he lost. Mike, played by Ben Rosenbaum, tells Maisie to give Tom a break, but she won’t listen. Nathan tells Maisie that she doesn’t think Tom needs to be arrested for theft just yet. Beth and the others promise that Tom will get the money back, and Nathan says he will arrest Tom only if he doesn’t. Maisie agrees, but not easily.

Outside the bar, Mike puts up a festival sign. A man then asks him how to get to Joseph Canfield. Mike tells him to go to the church or the café. At the same time, Nathan takes Clayton Pike to jail. Bill and Rosemary ask Pike about the attempted murder of Lucas (Chris McNally), but Pike won’t say who paid him.


Outside the bar, Elizabeth asks Nathan to become a tenor in the band. Nathan makes fun of his singing voice and suggests that he ask Bill. When a man pretending to be their Uncle Jacob shows up, Toby (Alfonso H. Lopez), Angela (Vienna Leacock), and Cooper (Elias Leacock) are talking about setting up the fundraiser. While Minnie (Natasha Burnett) is happy to see him, Joseph is not as open, which shows that there are old issues between them.

Joseph tells Henry (Martin Cummins) about how he and Jacob have grown apart. Henry tells him that if he feels bad about hurting his brother, he should say sorry, even if he doesn’t know the details. Lucas goes to see Pike in jail at night and asks him why he shot him. Pike doesn’t say anything because he’s afraid for his life if he does.

People in the town get ready for the choir event the next day. Ned and Florence (Loretta Walsh) are the first performers at the event. Next is Maisie’s group. Nathan says he’s sorry he didn’t know Jack and Tom thanks him for his help. Nathan is calmed down by Tom’s friendship with Elizabeth.

Liz is amazed at how many people came to the fair. She and Nathan share a sweet moment as Nathan gives Jack some money for a candy apple. At the library, Jacob and Joseph finally make up at the library, with Joseph saying sorry for what he did wrong in the past. Jacob joins the band at Hope Valley to sing “Amazing Grace” with all his heart.

After the festival, Joseph (Viv Leacock) and Jacob (Calix Fraser) meet together in a cafe. They talked about regrets and old wounds that still hurt. Jacob talks about how upset he is that Joseph feels abandoned after their grandpa dies. They make up and agree not to let their relationship fall apart again.

Henry and Edwin talk about Montague’s controversial plan in Lucas’s office. Even though he has moral issues, Lucas thinks about Montague’s offer to help create jobs since Benson Hills Oil Company is about to go bankrupt. Lucas makes the choice to move forward while stressing the need for privacy.

At the show’s end, people from Hope Valley meet at the saloon to celebrate the festival’s success. Everyone is celebrating the fact that they raised the money they needed, which makes you feel like you’re all in it together. The festival not only fixed the money problem, but it also brought people in the town closer together, which made their determination even stronger. Elizabeth encourages Tom to believe in himself by asking him about his plans for the future.

At the party, Elizabeth and Nathan share a sweet moment. The happy mood makes them feel pulled to each other, and a dance that brings them closer together makes their bond stronger. This dance shows that their relationship is growing stronger and suggests that they might become romantically involved in the future. The episode ends on a hopeful note that makes me think of fresh starts and the chance that Elizabeth and Nathan will fall in love.
