Is Chris McNally leaving When Calls the Heart?

Sunday night’s episode of When Calls the Heart answered many questions but also asked a few more.

We saw Lucas (Chris McNally) stand up to the Governor and Montague (Benjamin Wilkinson) and that seemed to fix the problems Hope Valley was facing — for now.

In the sneak peek preview for the next episode of When Calls the Heart, we saw Lucas announce that he was running for governor.

That asked the question of whether or not Chris McNally as Lucas would be staying in Hope Valley or leaving for the big city.

Right now, there is no confirmation as to whether or not Chris McNally is leaving When Calls the Heart, though it makes sense that people are worried that he is.

Plus, other things surrounding Lucas’s character remain up in the air.

Will Elizabeth still marry Lucas?

The last few episodes have shown us that Elizabeth (Erin Krakow) still seems to have some feelings for Nathan (Kevin McGarry) and seems to be having doubts about her marriage to Lucas.

Rosemary (Pascale Hutton) asked Elizabeth if she was having doubts, but Elizabeth denied having any. However, Henry (Martin Cummins) seems to know otherwise, as he approached Elizabeth in Episode 9 to give her some advice.

Elizabeth seems insistent that she has no doubts about marrying Lucas, but does she really love him, or does she just think he’s the safe choice? The only way to find out is to keep watching.

Will Elizabeth and Lucas leave Hope Valley?

If Lucas wins his election as governor, that would create some big changes surrounding the show and Hope Valley.

First, Lucas would have to move away to be governor, something that Elizabeth isn’t sure she wants to do. However, she notes in the preview for next week that this is “bigger than me.”

Given Lucas’s live radio broadcast where he stood up to the Governor, it seems that there is a strong likelihood that he could get elected, especially if he promises to save all the valley towns’ water supplies.

It seems unlikely that Elizabeth would be willing to leave Hope Valley since she set her life up there and has all of her friends in the town, so we’ll have to wait and see what happens if Lucas wins the race for governor.

All this still begs the question of whether or not Elizabeth will end up marrying Lucas, which seems questionable at this point. With only two episodes left in Season 10, the answers will be here before we know it.

When Calls the Heart airs Sundays at 9/8c on Hallmark.

I sincerely hope she stays and marry’s Nathan. I have never trusted Lucas and his way of trying to buy her with all the gifts she didn’t want.

I hope she goes to Nathan and tells him she loves him. I haven’t watched since Season 8. I would love to watch again, but won’t unless she does.

I was looking forward to Lucas and Elizabeth’s wedding. Hallmark started closing on the end since she went to cemetery. But before Lucas boards the train they hurried it up. They broke up in a manner of seconds. One cannot say ok we’re done after all episodes leading up to the wedding, Elizabeth was happily in love with him. All of a sudden they break up??It was too hurried up. “I’m not leaving hope valley” so goodbye”?
I don’t like Nathan so it’s doubtful I’ll be watching anymore.

And so many fans said the same thing if she didn’t use Nathan. I was one of them. And I’m still watching. Although many bands did leave. Ratings have not been the same since she chose Lucas.

I’m sorry but that is so disrespectful to the other actors and actresses in the cast. I was Team Nathan but didn’t stop watching when she chose Lucas. I enjoyed all the characters stories not just E & L

I totally agree!!! She belongs with Lucas. And if by chance he leaves, it just is not right to put her with Nathan. Bring someone new. Elizabeth and Nathan are old news!!

I agree. I’m sick of all this but i guess after this episode we know that she IS NOT marrying Lucas…he was the better choice rather than Nathan…it’s too similar to the beginning of when calls the heart….if she marries nathan…another mountie…ugh

I love Lucas. The show will not be a must see without him. Elizabeth is not that fickle or unsure of her heart to turn to Nathan. Big disappointment.

I agree with you 100%. I was so disappointed after watching tonight’s episode. When Calls the Heart is suppose to be our happy place for our hears to take us and everything was settled and now I hope Lucas isn’t leaving. Please leave Lucas, Elizabeth and a little Jack together in Hope Valoey – we can move the Governor’s Mansion there.❤️

I only watch because she is with Lucas. So many other favorites. Elizabeth and Nathan are not. Will not watch is Lucas is gone.

Please, please, please writers do not start this love triangle with Nathan, Elizabeth and Lucas again. Bring someone new in for Nathan or put him with Elizabeth and make that the end. I am tired of the going back and forth. It is ridiculous and needs to stop. Also I don’t want to see Elizabeth leave Hope Valley. If Chris McNally is leaving the show please don’t let Elizabeth leave.

I think that they might kill Lucas character off if he decides to leave the show cause the Montague man said at the end you just don’t know what you have done betraying the governor just my opinion

I will stop watching if Elizabeth ends up with Nathan. Jack was the only mountie to me. I liked that they gave her a different type of beau.

Elizabeth is far to wishy washy. Viewers have spent far to long waiting for her to make up her mind, and she finally chose Lucas, enough already!
Besides, Lucas is by far the better choice in EVERY sense of the word!

I don’t Elizabeth will marry either Nathan or Lucas. They will keep us guessing even on the last episode.

I have this overwhelming feeling the writers are trying to appease Nathan fans now. I will be watching irregardless as I did when she chose Lucas. I just don’t see the chemistry between E& L I did in the beginning when E chose Lucas.

This year and last year makes Elizabeth look like a fool. She won’t move away from her best friend next door so you think she will move to the governor’s mansion? No way! I can’t stand Nathan but let her marry him so they can live in total boredom together. Let Lucas find someone that he deserves because Elizabeth is just plain boring.

Wow, that was rude. Not everyone is cut out for the big city life. Small town living is amazing. You can’t force love either. You need to open your eyes.

If Elizabeth doesn’t marry Lucas I won’t be watching anymore because I do not like Nathan.

If she does not marry Lucas, I will no longer watch. She chose Lucas from the beginning why would she all of a certain decide she can’t marry him just because she doesn’t want to leave Hope Valley. I hope she realizes she still loves Lucas.

I am no longer watching this show. Elizabeth is a coward and a tease. How she dumped Lucas is unforgivable so you can take your show and stuff it

I am sorry but I guess I will not watch anymore When Calls the heart. The producers have made Elizabeth a two timer, not truthful., always playing one guy against the other. For some one who is supposed to be a model to be followed- she is not.

Elizabeth did not have a problem enjoying all the perks Lucas had to offer. Lucas left during their courtship so Elizabeth could make up her mind who she wanted, she chose Lucas. I don’t think she loves Nathan that much, just the uniform. Lucas has always been the gentleman and willing to accept what she wanted, Nathan not so much.

I will not look at this show anymore if she doesn’t marry Lucas. It’s not always about her She should love him enough to go to Capital City for 4 years since she wants him to save hope valley. I was very disappointed

Oh my gosh people…get a life! It is a TV show…If you haven’t noticed, Chris has been in a lot of other movies lately and maybe it is just his time as an “actor” to move on. I am honestly laughing at the utter nonsense people are saying…These are not “real” people, they are pretend, you know, like you tell your kids when they think make-believe is real.

Frankly, I like the twist in the show. It keeps everyone watching and coming back, even if you say you hate it and your not! I really like both Nathan and Lucas! I understand her confusion. I like what the writers are doing . I can’t wait to see what is going to happen! I will continue to watch.

If Elizabeth ends up with Nathan, that would be totally wrong, talk about beating a dead horse, that storyline has already been played, and Nathan is no substitute for Jack. Elizabeth and Lucas makes sense., I love the show, but I will not watch it again if it’s Nathan, it’s like starting from season one just with a different character. And we know how remixes usually turn out, at the box of the trash pile!

I am disappointed with the writers for dragging us through the Nathan and Lucas as suitors in the past seasons to do this again to the viewers is completely, ridiculous. How selfish of Elizabeth to do that to little Jack. I’m done with the show getting my hopes up and then going back to Nathan…what a joke! It’s over for me.
