In case you forgot, season eight holds a lot of big decisions. Fiona begins an exciting new chapter in her life. Meanwhile, Elizabeth has to sort through her feelings and choose between Nathan and Lucas. Additionally, Faith returns from medical school.

When Calls The Heart Fans Debate: Who Will Elizabeth Choose?

Season seven left When Calls The Heart fans with an unresolved love triangle. At first, it seemed that Elizabeth had her sights set on Lucas. However, in the final episode of season seven, she embraced Nathan with “a hug around the world.” So, where does she stand? Elizabeth, who are you going to choose?! Actress and co-executive producer of the show, Erin Krakow (Elizabeth), didn’t reveal any details about where her character’s heart truly lies. However, during an interview, she did promise fans that a decision will be made in season eight.

“I am happy to say that we will, in season 8, have a decision and we’ll get to see Elizabeth move on with her romantic life,” said Erin. “I really think it’s about time. Love triangles are so exciting to watch and I’m really proud of the way we’ve told this story, but they’re also really frustrating and I have felt that from the fans. They’re like, ‘All right, it’s enough already, let’s go!’ They’re enjoying the ride but they’re so eager to see Elizabeth and baby Jack happy and starting to kind of get to enjoy that real courtship.”

There you have it, When Calls The Heart fans can breathe easy knowing that Elizabeth will choose who to officially date in season eight. But you’ll have to tune in tonight to find out.
