[Warning: The below contains MAJOR spoilers for Chesapeake Shores Season 6 Episode 9 “Spring Can Really Hang Up the Most.”]
Chesapeake shores heads into its series finale with more to celebrate than not.
In the penultimate episode, there is a proposal, a baby is born, and a new business is about to take off. But there’s also some not-so-good news, with a family reunion still not getting the expected reaction. Y a dream of O’Brien’s possibly dashed due to a Marvel movie. Read on for the highlights.
After choosing a ring, Mick (Treat Williams) tells his sponsor, Ralph (Donald Sales), that he’s proposing to Megan (Barbara Niven). He knows it’s not recommended to start a new relationship in her first year of recovery, but as he points out, they’ve known each other for over 30 years. This is not new. Mick is sure that this is for the best and that his life will be better with Megan in it.
The kids are on board, Bree (Emilie Ullerup) assures him when she shares the news. In fact, everyone has been waiting for it to happen (and they have a bet going, that she will win).
And of course, since Mick wants it to be special, something has to go wrong when it comes time to pop the question. In this case, it’s the ring put in someone else’s dessert. Then once they get it back and he can officially ask her, the phone rings! It will stay, Megan says, but it’s her son Kevin (Brendan Penny) with good news (more on that shortly). Still, Megan takes the time to tell Mick that his answer is yes as they hurry to the car.
A new O’Brien
Kevin and Sarah (Jessica Sipos) may be expecting their first child, but he’s already weighing their finances if they have more. Y the difference it would make if he became a doctor. She, on the other hand, isn’t thinking about anything beyond having this baby.
Speaking of which, when Sarah goes into labor, prompting Kevin to call his parents, there is no time to get to the hospital on time. Instead, the ambulance must stop and Kevin has to deliver the baby.
Good news after the shooting
The bad news: Luke (Stephen Huszar) was the one who got shot. The good news: he’s going to be fine, although he was very lucky because an inch either way… The bad news: he was out of his parole zone when visiting his parents’ grave and didn’t let his parole officer knows. The best news: His parole officer will let him in, since he did a good thing and intervened during a robbery.
But what happened makes Luke think. He was lucky. He was shot and almost sent back to prison, and now he’s second-guessing things with Bree. But she doesn’t want anyone else. “You were not sent back to prison, you have friends who love you and you did not die. I’ll take that kind of luck any day,” she tells him.
Important steps forward for Jess and David
Following Miranda’s (Tammy Gillis) advice, the actress is in town to talk to Bree about adapting her book into a movie, Jess (Laci J Mailey) and David (Carlo Marks) focus on their relationship instead of stress. in their lives (his inability to find an investor for a vineyard, him waiting to hear about a possible lawyer for his father). They put down their phones and go on a picnic. When they get back, they learn everything they’ve missed (like Luke was shot), and Jess gets good news from Miranda: she wants to back Jess’s vineyard! She will have her attorney prepare the paperwork.
Meanwhile, Connor (Andrew Francis) and Margaret (Mariesa Crouse) weigh the pros and cons of taking on David’s father as a client. exist much of cons, such as: they’ll go up against a government attorney, it’s beyond the scope of their skills, it would be very expensive, they’d have to hire additional staff, and it could be a very, very public flop. In both columns: The defendant is related by marriage to Connor’s family. “But what if we win?” Connor asks. And he agrees to take David’s father as a client.
Maybe this leads to good news
After Mandrake (Wesley Salter) brought his father John (Andrew Airlie) with him, Evan (Robert Buckley) leaves Abby’s (Meghan Ory) house. She returns just in time to listen as John shares that he dated Evan’s mom while he was home from med school. He then started his residency in New Orleans, got a serious girlfriend, and eventually stopped calling. John never knew that Evan’s mother was pregnant. But Evan is mad that he stopped calling and thinks that John is only here now because he found out that he has a rich son. John insists that he didn’t know about Evan’s wealth, plus he doesn’t need the money. Both Abby and Mandrake try to encourage Evan to give him a chance, but he only sees John as the man who abandoned his pregnant mother.
John decides to stay in town if Evan wants to see him, but it doesn’t look like that’s going to happen anytime soon. “He may be my biological father, but he is not and has never been my father,” Evan tells Mick. As he sees it, John is 30 years too late to get things right.
Also, Evan fires Mandrake! Abby is understandably surprised, given that they are a team and friends, but Mandrake could never be mad at Evan. As she reveals, the man gave her a second chance. After returning from Iraq, things hadn’t gone well and Mandrake was homeless when he came to Evan’s rescue after his car flipped. Mandrake pulled him out before the car caught fire. Evan called him Mandrake the Magnificent and asked if he wanted to be his driver. We also learn Mandrake’s real name in this episode; Alan Wilkins, although he believes that he will keep the name Evan gave him.
Meanwhile, Bree agrees to give Miranda her book for the movie if she can write the script, and the actress agrees. However, Miranda receives an offer to play the villain in the new Marvel movie. While she hates comic book movies, she is worried about the brand of it, so she accepts it. That means Bree’s movie will have to wait (and could be scrapped entirely). But for now, she can start working on screenwriting, Miranda points out. She’s a rookie screenwriter and she has to start somewhere.
