Alexandra Breckenridge Reveals Whether She Thinks Mel and Jack Are Destined to Be Together on ‘Virgin River’

*Warning: Major spoilers ahead*

The fourth season of Virgin River may have only come out a few days ago, but if you're like us, then you probably already binged the whole thing (and you might already be doing a rewatch). Now, after that major cliffhanger at the end of season 4, we're left to wonder what's in store for all of our favorite characters, specifically Mel (Alexandra Breckenridge) and Jack (Martin Henderson) who encountered some roadblocks in their relationship this past season.

Luckily for us, Breckenridge sat down with The List to give her take on the future of Jack and Mel, saying, “It would be very weird if they did not end up together.”


She looked back to the moment when they broke up during season 3 and said, “It honestly didn't ever feel natural that Jack broke up with Mel.” She added, “It didn't really make a whole lot of sense...I was like, ‘Maybe Mel should break up with Jack.’ That makes more sense. Mel should break up with Jack. Mel should be like, ‘You know what? I was right in the first place. I can't do this. No, all of this is too much for me, I can't,’ but he broke up with her, and I can't even remember why. It was so silly.” But according to The List, Breckenridge thinks that Mel and Jack should never break up again (and we feel the same way).

Thankfully, more Virgin River episodes are already being filmed, but unfortunately, we have no idea yet when season 5 will be released. Just a couple days ago, Henderson shared a behind-the-scenes photo from the set, writing, “Jack’s back! Day 1 of shooting #virginriver Season 5—feels good to slip back into Jack’s boots.”

We can't wait to see more, but in the meantime, don't mind us while we go rewatch the first four seasons.
