The season two finale was filled with surprises for most of the inhabitants of the small town, which viewers have been waiting since November of last year to see resolved.

The biggest shock of all was Mel finding Jack bleeding out on the floor of his bar with a gunshot wound to his stomach. We still don't know who shot him or why but we can't wait to find out.

Season 2's cliffhanger ending also focused on Hope and Doc's re-engagement, which was a fantastic progression for the couple, but their happiness was to be quickly put on pause as the latter told his fiancée that he'd received some worrying news following a recent check-up.

Back in November, Virgin River boss Sue Tenney offered some insight into future storylines teasing: "Doc has some stuff going on [next] season. A complication that will challenge him and will challenge his relationship with Hope.

"He's going to rise to the challenge, but it is a real complication for him, especially for him practising medicine going forward," she explained.

"Will he be able to continue to do that? The clinic and town are his life, so we will seriously explore that."

Virgin River seasons 1 and 2 are available to stream on Netflix.
