Last week, Sarah and Kevin found out that she was pregnant, ending speculation that they might not be able to have children. Now they need to figure out how to share the news, especially since Sarah just accepted a promotion to lieutenant with the fire department.
Also, in last week’s episode, Evan proved that he isn’t leaving Chesapeake Shores anytime soon. After telling Abby that he was pulling out of his deal to build a resort on the beach, he threw his back out and ended up staying on the couch at the O’Brien house until he recovered.
While hosting her unwanted guest, Abby learned a bit more about the eccentric billionaire, including the fact that he has dyslexia that went undiagnosed when he was a child. In addition, his personal assistant, Mandrake (played by Wesley Salter of When Calls the Heart), told Abby that Evan was considered lazy and unmotivated when he was growing up.
“No one believed in him, so Evan had to believe in himself,” Mandrake said.
Abby found herself defending Evan to Jay, saying he never had a real family growing up.
By the time Evan was well enough to get off the couch, he had decided the deal was back on. He told Abby he would build the resort on a different lot and planned on turning the old site, where a 17th-century ship had been found, into a museum.

The whisk away
In previews for Episode 8, Evan approaches Abby with a mysterious proposal. He invites her on a business trip, which her sisters immediately decide is a romantic gesture.
“This is a classic move, though,” Bree says.
“It’s the whisk away,” Jess agrees.
Abby is skeptical but finds herself stunned when Evan takes her to a beautiful lake and begins talking in a serious tone.
“Abby, we have connected in a very profound way,” he says. “I realize this might sound kind of sudden.”
A package for Mick
