Who shot Jack on ‘Virgin River’? We finally have an answer



The Season Two finale of “Virgin River” had an event that no one saw coming, especially Jack Sheridan (Martin Henderson). In the final moments, he was shot by a stranger in his bar.

For the next two seasons, audiences and the population of Virgin River wondered: Who shot Jack? Who would dare harm our beloved Marine vet-turned-bar owner, who finally got a shot at happiness with Mel Monroe (Alexandra Breckenridge)?

A lingering question throughout Season Three, Season Four finally gave us an answer, revealing the identity of Jack’s attempted murderer and showing all the wrong turns taken along the way in the investigation.

Here’s what we know.

Brady was innocent all along

In the Season Three finale, Jack’s friend Brady (Benjamin Hollingsworth) from the Marines was arrested for attempted murder.

Things didn’t look good for Brady. For one, he was found with a gun in his car. He also associated himself with Calvin (David Cubitt), Virgin River’s local drug lord, whose business Jack tried to take down.

Despite claiming his innocence, Brady is arrested. While in jail, Brady survives an attempted murder of his own. The cousin of Jimmy (Ian Tracey), Calvin’s right-hand man, stabs him.

When Jack’s memory returns following a breakthrough, he confirms that Brady was not his assailant. This is good news for Jack’s sister, Brie (Zibby Allen), who has started a romance with Brady. Ah, “Virgin River!”

In fact, the attempted murder had nothing to do with Calvin

Yes, you read that right.

Calvin and his associates were always the top suspects for the attempted murder — at least for Virgin River law enforcement. In Season Three, Jimmy gets arrested, then is released thanks to an an alibi. Brady is not so lucky, and briefly winds up in prison.

Ultimately, though, the drug kingpin and his associates were not involved in Jack’s attempted murder (but they have to do with the cover-up).

Wes shot Jack while looking for his twin brother, Vince

As Jack has been involved in his own drama — ranging from paternity questions to helicopter accidents — his buddy Preacher (Colin Lawrence) has had his own.

Last season, Preacher helped Paige (Lexa Doig), a single mom on the run from her abusive ex-husband. When Vince (Steve Basic) tracks Paige and their son Christopher (Chase Petriw) down, Paige accidentally pushes him down the stairs. Preacher helps cover up the murder and takes care of Christopher so Paige can leave town.

Vince’s twin brother, Wes, arrives in Virgin River looking for answers, and eventually kidnaps Christopher.

Thanks to seeing security footage, Jack has a breakthrough and remembers Vince going into the bar, asking for Preacher and looking suspicious. Jack, entering into warrior mode, stabs Vince — who retaliates by shooting him from the floor.

Vince’s gun was found with DNA evidence from the scene of the crime. As for whether Vince will see justice served? The finale ends with Preacher smashing Vince over the head with a piece of wood during a violent confrontation, in which he pointed a gun at Paige.

Brady was framed, however

Back to Brady, who was right all along on two counts: He was innocent, and he was framed.

Mike (Marco Grazzini), a former Marine, is in Virgin River investigating Calvin at Jack’s behest. Turns out Mike made some breakthroughs.

As part of a plea deal, Deputy Howard (Greg Delmage) admitted to helping Calvin launder money and planted Vince’s gun in Brady’s truck to frame him.

And there’s a new drug lord in town: Melissa

The crimes never stop in Virgin River. Calvin is seemingly killed in a boating explosion. The end of the season reveals his successor: Melissa Montgomery. It’s implied that Melissa was behind Calvin’s death.

Turns out Melissa is the sister of Nick, who is investing in Jack’s new glamping business. She joins Jack, Mel, Nick and Jo Ellen for a dinner celebrating their new venture, setting up next season’s potential conflict.

Ellen DeGeneres sends her love to Anne Heche’s family and friends: ‘This is a sad day’



Ellen DeGeneres is responding to the heartbreaking news that her ex-girlfriend Anne Heche was not expected to survive injuries sustained from a car crash.

“This is a sad day. I’m sending Anne’s children, family, and friends all of my love,” Degeneres, who dated Heche from 1997 to 2000, wrote in a post shared on Twitter.

Since DeGeneres’ tweet, TODAY has confirmed that Heche is “legally dead,” according to a statement from her family. She is being kept on life support so that an organ donation organization can find out if she is a match.

It’s unclear if DeGeneres knew of Heche’s status when she tweeted. DeGeneres’ tweet was the first time the comedian released a statement on her ex, who had been suffering from a “severe anoxic brain injury” after a car accident in Los Angeles last week.

After being approached by a photographer earlier this week, DeGeneres responded to questions about her ex, saying, “We’re not in touch with each other, so I wouldn’t know.”

She added, “I don’t want anyone to be hurt.”

Though the two went their separate ways decades ago, their relationship was considered groundbreaking for its time and has been celebrated in the years since.

The two women dated openly and often appeared on red carpet events hand in hand during a time in which open same-sex relationships were uncommon and not often embraced positively by the public. In a 2020, profile for Mr. Warburton magazine, Heche reflected on how their relationship shaped our societal landscape as well as her career.

“Our time was a beautiful part of my life and one that I wear with honor,” Heche said at the time. “I was a part of a revolution that created social change, and I could not have done that without falling in love with her.”

Heche went on to marry Coleman Laffoon, with whom she had one son. After their divorce, married her “Men in Trees” co-star James Tupper. Together they also had a son. Heche became subject to criticism for her relationships with men in the years after her relationship with DeGeneres ended. Entertainment journalist Michael Musto reflected on that period in time in a 2018 open letter and apologized for his part in feeding the fodder with his reports on the actor.

“After your 2000 breakup with Ellen, all the strides you made in the press seemed to go backward, and we all turned on you, I have to admit. You entered a crisis phase and were behaving erratically—ringing a stranger’s bell and saying weird things on drugs, for one thing,” he wrote at the time. “We dutifully made fun of your downfall, which was awful, even if Ellen herself had chimed in with some negative things to say about you in retrospect. You (and of course, those you may have been harassing) deserved more compassion at this point, especially in light of the advances you and Ellen had made for the community and how celebrated you had been as a new member of our club.”

In 2021, Heche hosted Musto on her podcast “Better Together,” where she thanked him for his words. 

“I wanted an apology from someone, anyone at all, to acknowledge that perhaps maybe the perspective that was painted on me wasn’t necessarily the full picture, so I want you to know how much it did move me,” she explained. “And the importance of it and the impact that I want to readers to understand that when we do something that’s nicer, kinder, in the right vein for others, it’s gonna get to them some way.”

During that 2021 podcast episode, Heche also explained how her dad’s death from AIDS in the 1980s inspired her to live her own life more openly. Her father’s “double life” informed her decision not to keep her sexuality in the shadows, and to come out to the world after knowing DeGeneres for only four days.

“That was a death sentence to me if I didn’t put it first in my life. In my opinion, that lie meant my death and the only way I was going to be a survivor of my life was to live in the truth,” she said. “What that did was challenged my commitment to it in a bigger way than I had ever imagined I would be challenged.”

In 2001, a year after their split, DeGeneres opened up to the Los Angeles Times on their relationship and the resulting heartbreak she endured after things ended between them,

“It was the first time I ever had my heart broken. I’d always been the one to leave relationships, and I had been in long-term relationships, and it was the one time I really believed this is forever,” DeGeneres said at the time.

“I felt safe and I felt we shared so much together, and it was the first time I’ve had my heart broken, and it was in a big way,” she added. “Because there is no closure … I know what it’s like to lose someone, and that’s a horrible feeling, (but) it’s almost worse to lose someone and know they’re still alive out there, and I don’t understand. So it was a big heartbreak.”

Brooklyn Peltz Beckham Says He Wants to Be a ‘Young Dad’ and Have ’10 Kids’ (Exclusive)



Brooklyn Peltz Beckham, family man! The 23-year-old model and chef opened up about ,his dreams of fatherhood with his new wife, Nicola Peltz Beckham, at the Variety power of Young Hollywood Event on Thursday. 

“I’ve always wanted to be a young dad,” Brooklyn told ET’s Deidre Behar. “I would love to have a family soon, but whenever my wife is ready.”

Brooklyn himself comes from a big family — his famous parents are mom and dad to four children — but he says he could go even bigger. “I could have, like, ten,” he says, but still maintained the decision was up to his wife. 

Brooklyn and Nicola married in April of this year. The nuptials came nearly two years after the groom popped the question to his now-bride, after they’d been dating for 10 months. They combined their last names for the new Peltz Beckham title. 

On Thursday, Brooklyn said that marriage had only deepened his love for Nicola. “It does feel different,” he said. “I married my best mate and it’s the best feeling in the world. It’s just me and her.”

In his Variety feature, Brooklyn said that he’d like to do a reality TV show with Nicola, “because she’s so funny, and we take the piss out of each other all the time.”

He reiterated the idea on Thursday, telling ET he thinks they’d make good content because “we always have a laugh and talk about the most ridiculous things.” For now, though, he’s focusing on opening his own pub before heading up any new projects. 

“I’m just focusing on my cooking trying to make a name for myself,” he said.

5 TV Shows To Check Out This Weekend



If the multiverse were fair, Paper Girls, Amazon’s adaptation of the hit indie comic series written by Brian K. Vaughan, would be showered with the same adulation and attention given to Stranger Things. On the surface, both shows are nostalgic sci-fi romps starring children facing off against insurmountable and sinister odds. But where Stranger Things is mostly driven by fun and referential spectacle, Paper Girls is driven by the emotional growth of its four young leads.

Paper Girls kicks off the morning after Halloween in 1988, when a group of 12-year-old newspaper couriers ride out to deliver their normal routes; while escaping the clutches of drunk teenagers in shitty costumes, they end up embroiled in a time war. Jumping from 1988 to 2019 to 1999, the girls confront their disappointment with who they become in the future, each dealing with the brutal reality of their adult selves in a different way. It is one of the most fascinating and satisfying depictions of a teenage girl’s mind I’ve ever seen on TV.

But Paper Girls, adapted by Stephany Folsom, isn’t all grim introspection; the series shines when the girls are doing normal teen things like stealing tampons after one of them gets their period for the first time or trying to get into grown-up parties they have no business being at. The fragile, unlikely bonds that form between them in those quiet moments are tested by the adults in the show, and, unlike Stranger Things, there’s no chosen one here. This is just a group of funny, bitter, sweet girls trying to survive the chaos of growing up too soon. And just in case that’s not enough, there’s also Ali Wong piloting a time-traveling mecha in combat for the future of humanity. —K.M.
