Stays to be seen, however Helen deserves higher, is all we’re saying.
The tip of the season gave us a significant cliffhanger when Maddie’s oldest son Ty (Carson Rowland) seemingly will get into a significant automotive accident with somebody within the passenger seat.

All of them did speculate what their love lives would appear like, however nobody gave any actual solutions. Elliott is to see if Dana Sue and the hunky co-op farmer will warmth issues up.

It’s about a lot greater than who’s within the automotive!”
