The moment Chessies have been waiting for is right around the corner! After a drama-filled Season 5 finale, fans have been desperate to find out what is going on with the O’Brien family. Here is everything we know so far about Season 6:
1. Connor is Alive (Woo hoo!)
Perhaps the most shocking moment of the Season 5 finale was when Connor O’Brien (Andrew Francis) collapsed in the driveway of the O’Brien house while talking with his paralegal Margaret. He had been battling stress and a bad heart all season, following a legal battle with his former employer.
But previews for Season 6 show the handsome guy tucked up in a hospital bed with his family around him. Don’t know if he’s going to have any more cardiac episodes, but for now, he is safe.
2. There’s a new Margaret in town
In Season 5, Connor met a gorgeous, brilliant paralegal at his new firm. When he decided to set up his own practice, she helped. They also shared a lot of lingering glances and one very sweet kiss.
While Margaret is back, this season she is played by actress Mariesa Crouse.
Treat Williams and Barbara Niven introduced her in a video they posted to Instagram. The three went hiking on a day off from filming, and then found an amazing donut shop that they raved about:
3. Abby picked Evan….maybe?
At the end of Season 5, Abby told her sister she had finally decided between the two men who were interested in dating her. In true cliffhanger style, she didn’t reveal to the audience whether she chose mild-mannered schoolteacher Jay or zany billionaire man-child Evan.
Fast forward to two weeks ago, when Hallmark released a clip that shows a luxurious yacht anchored in the water in front of the O’Brien house. Evan appears in a tux and Abby comes down to meet him in….sweats.
“I don’t think I’m dressed for this date,” Abby says.
“You have never looked lovelier,” he replies.
The next thing you know, she is in a green ball gown and the two are dancing aboard the boat. Case closed. Or is it?
We all know how much Hallmark likes to keep us guessing. Could this scene just be a dream sequence? Will we find out that it was just something Abby imagined while she and Jay were waiting for a table to open up at Golden Corral?
4. Luke and Bree are together. Probably
Another preview shows Bree (Emilie Ullerup) and her high-school friend Luke (Stephen Huszar) walking hand-in-hand. Luke returned to Chesapeake Shores last season and began working at The Bridge. He finally admitted to Bree that he had been in prison and that he was still on parole. If Bree had any misgivings, she appears to have gone over them. The two looked quite cozy in the Season 6 previews.
5. Mick and Meg are back on
Season 5 was a strange one for Mic (Treat Williams) and Meg (Barbara Niven). The couple, who divorced when their children were little, grew steadily closer until they announced they were getting back together as a couple. But when Meg had a chance to work at a prestigious gallery in California, Mick became angry. He also appeared to be abusing the pain meds he was prescribed following an accident with his plane.
But in the clips Hallmark has released, the two appear to be back on track, and there are no signs of Mick needing rehab. Yay.
6. David’s dad is on the run
In Season 5, Jess (Laci Mailey) and David (Carlo Marks) were shocked to find out his father had stolen money from his trust fund. It turns out his father had been accused of some illegal dealings and has fled the country.
In a Season 6 preview, David receives a phone call from his dad. Will this turn out to be a misunderstanding or is Dennis Peck looking at extradition and hard time?
7. Kevin and Sarah are hanging in there
In Season 5, Sarah (Jessica Sipos) had a miscarriage. She was so devastated she asked Kevin (Brendan Penny) not to tell anyone, but he ended up confessing to his parents. Sarah was furious until Meg came to visit and told her that she too had a miscarriage. That moment of understanding served to heal some of the bad feelings between Kevin and Sarah, but it will be interesting to see where are now. Could there be a Baby O’Brien by the end of the season?
Season 6 of Chesapeake Shores will premiere on Hallmark Channel on Sunday, August 14 at 8/7c.
