When Calls the Heart has been a joyous treat since it returned to our screens for season 8 on February 21st.

But just who did Elizabeth choose in When Calls the Heart? Did she choose Lucas, Nathan or someone new?
*WARNING: Spoilers ahead*
When Calls the Heart season 8
Season 8 of When Calls the Heart arrived on the Hallmark Channel on February 21st, 2021 and new episodes have aired on Sundays ever since.
After teasing the resolution to Elizabeth’s love triangle for some time, the new season promised to see the character finally make up her mind and choose between Lucas and Nathan.
As ever in the world of TV, however, When Calls the Heart made its fans wait until season 8’s final chapter to find out the crucial piece of information we’ve all been anxious to discover.
Who does Elizabeth choose in When Calls the Heart?
- Elizabeth chose Lucas in When Calls the Heart’s season 8 finale.
Following the death of her husband, Jack, Elizabeth caught the eye of two well-standing Hope Valley suitors, Nathan, a mountie like Jack, and Lucas, a burgeoning businessman.
Throughout season 8, Elizabeth had romantic moments with both Lucas and Nathan and fans of the series were left split on who she should pick.
In the season 8 finale, however, with the help of Rosemary, Elizabeth finally worked out what her heart wanted.
She came to realize that she wanted to see her late husband Jack in Nathan and struggled to love Nathan for himself.
Instead, she came to the conclusion that Lucas was the one to choose and she went in search of the saloon owner just as he appeared to be on the verge of leaving town.
Thankfully, the two managed to find each other on the bridge where they shared a moment earlier on in the season and they are finally able to admit their feelings and kiss.
Who Elizabeth chose in the books
In Janette Oke’s Canadian West book series, which Hallmark’s series is based on, Elizabeth doesn’t choose Lucas or Nathan.
Instead, Elizabeth falls for a new arrival, Wynn Delaney, a mounted police officer from the north.
The second book in the Canadian West series, When Comes the Spring, sees Elizabeth move away from Hope Valley in order to live with Wynn at an outpost in the far north where the population is sparse and the winters are harsh.
This obviously differs from the events in the series as Elizabeth and Lucas ended up together by the end of season 8.
When Calls the Heart season 8 concluded the Hallmark Channel on Sunday, May 9th, 2021.
