It’s Claire’s welcome home party and Tess gets the nerve to invite Jake to the party. But he informs her he has a new live-in girlfriend named Sally. Claire has her own troubles as she has just left the hospital from having a thrombosis, putting her baby and three-month pregnancy at risk. Although Alex has been claiming he is the father, Claire breaks the news to Alex’s parents that he is not the father, but got pregnant from a one-night stand at a pub.
With Alex’s parents full support, she and Tess must wade through their financial troubles as they determine if they may need to sell cattle to create some cash flow to pay off outstanding bills. Claire tells Tess, “I said I’m fine.” Insisting she is OK to work, and ignoring the doctor’s orders to rest her body, Claire gets on a horse and helps with the cattle, causing an accident. While helping Claire wrangle some cattle by flying overhead in a helicopter, Alex crashes the plane. As Alex recovers, his parents urge Alex to do the right thing and care for Claire since they secretly believe the baby is indeed Alex’s and not a stranger. Meanwhile, Jodi goes to identify her friend who someone claims is at the hospital and has been missing for some time. But upon arrival, realizes it is not him but a man whom has amnesia. She names him Mack for the truck that hit him causing him to lose his memory. She vows to visit him regularly, so he won’t feel alone.
After his accident, Claire confesses she lied, and that Alex is really the father. “Let’s keep this low key,” Claire tells his parents. The season ends with Alex and Claire claiming friendship and a promise not to marry. Although the sparks do fly between them. Will they eventually become more than just friends?
