Virgin River: Do Preacher and Julia Get Together? Do Preacher and Paige End Up Together? – Similar to Season 1, the Virgin River Season 2 finale delivered everything we could have hoped for in terms of resolving unresolved issues, delivering the romance, leaving us to speculate about the whereabouts of some people, and ultimately throwing us off the emotional cliff. When it came to giving us some heartbreaking turns, fascinating twists, and significant shocks to keep our minds occupied. At the same time, we waited to hear whether or not the series would be given a third season, Virgin River’s second season did not fall short.
One of the central figures in “Virgin River” on Netflix is John “Preacher” Middleton, played by Colin Lawrence. Like Jack, who he served in Iraq with, he is a former Marine. He is employed as a chef at Jack’s bar when the series premieres. Later, Preacher rejects an offer to work in San Francisco in order to accept Jack’s invitation to join him in business. Preacher is the male protagonist of the second book in Robyn Carr’s original series of novels, “Shelter Mountain.” Preacher becomes a father figure to Christopher Lassiter, the son of local baker Paige Lassiter (Lexa Doig), who drives the pastry truck Paige’s Bakeaway, as shown earlier in the TV series.
In season 2, Paige is compelled to leave Virgin River. In season 4, Preacher develops a love interest in Julia, a newcomer to the community and an Aikido instructor (played by Lawrence Walters’ real-life wife, Lucia Walters). Read the article below if you want to know whether Preacher will choose Paige or Julia.
Does Preacher End Up with Julia or Paige in ‘Virgin River’?
Paige makes her debut in the first episode of the show, just like Preacher did. Paige strikes Mel as being approachable, polite, and open. Presumably, Paige has known Preacher ever since she moved to the community. As their acquaintance progresses toward romance, some inconsistencies in her account emerge. She doesn’t have a bank account because she thinks Wes will use it to follow her and Christopher. Ultimately, it is revealed that Michelle Logan, who is on the run from her violent husband, Wes, is Paige’s real name.
Wes finally arrives in Virgin River and tries to coerce Christopher and Paige into accompanying him on his departure. He chokes Paige, and as Christopher approaches, Paige knocks Christopher down the steps, killing him. Paige is urged to flee with Christopher when Preacher arrives and learns what occurred. Wes’ body is managed by Preacher, who buries it in the forest.
Paige makes the decision to leave Christopher with Preacher after Wes’ twin brother Vince starts hunting for her and Christopher. In a tragic, ironic twist, Vince separates Preacher from Christopher in the season 3 finale and kidnaps his nephew. Preacher searches for Christopher for the whole of the fourth season. He employs a number of detectives, but none of them is successful.
Preacher meets Julia in the meantime, and they start getting close. Julia introduces Preacher to her niece at the Renaissance Fair in Virgin River. But when she discovers pictures of Christopher, Preacher, and Chloe together in a picnic basket, things get complicated. At first, the Preacher is hesitant to share any details. Although he has valid reasons, it is understandable that Julia becomes agitated by his lack of response.
Just as Preacher starts to open up to Julia in season 4 episode 10, titled “Fire and Rain,” Paige reappears in his life. Later, Preacher learns that Christopher has returned but that Vince has seized Paige, this time to exact retribution for his brother’s death. Preacher successfully stops Vince in the “The Long Goodbye” season 4 finale and saves Paige. Because of this, Paige and Julia are both in Virgin River at the end of the fourth season. The natural question that follows is: Who Will Preacher End Up With?
Paige is the female lead opposite Preacher in Carr’s original novel. The show’s makers, however, have exercised a great deal of artistic licence and diverged significantly from the books’ plot lines. The love triangle between Paige, Preacher, and Julia can therefore be completely reimagined in season 5. Even though their relationship was never romantic, Paige and Preacher had a close affinity.
Preacher might decide to provide her and Christopher with the secure home they deserve in season 5 and find happiness. He could also choose to stay with Julia, which is a possibility. He has previously expressed to her his seriousness about their relationship, after all. He and Paige were tight, but they had never been this intimate. In any case, it seems that Preacher might have to choose in season 5.
