In When Calls the Heart: Trials of the Heart, Elizabeth (Erin Krakow) and Jack (Daniel Lissing) are closer than ever after their first kiss, but their budding union barely has time to begin when Elizabeth receives a distressing telegram from home requesting her return. As Jack gains a new understanding of Elizabeth's high-society family life, Abigail (Lori Loughlin) remains in Coal Valley where she nervously awaits the mining disaster trial, and finally confronts investigator Bill Avery (Jack Wagner) about a shocking discovery that could put their own romantic future on hold.
