One of Netflix’s biggest shows ,popular romance Virgin River follows Melinda “Mel” Monroe (Alexandra Breckenridge), a nurse and midwife who moves to the small California town from Los Angeles after her husband Mark dies. There she falls for restaurant/bar owner and former marine Jack Sheridan (Martin Henderson) and becomes friends with his lawyer sister Brie (Zibby Allen).

Where did we leave Mel, Jack and Brie at the end of season 5?

Season 5 started with Mel and Jack in a good place — engaged and expecting a baby. But after helping the town fight a wildfire, .Mel suffered a miscarriage. It took time to recover but by the end of the season Mel and Jack are back in a good place and planning to build a new home on the ashes of Lily’s farm. They spent Christmas looking for and finding her biological father Everett Reid (John Allen Nelson ).

Meanwhile, Jack’s sister Brie (Zibby Allen) broke off with Brady (Benjamin Hollingsworth) because she thought he was still involved with the Virgin River drug trade and connected with policeman Mike (Marco Grazzini) when she was in court in Sacramento testifying against the former co-worker who assaulted her.
