'Virgin River' Fans Really Want to Know If Paige is Returning to 'Virgin River'

·3 min read

Season three of Virgin River is full of new mysteries and intrigue, and fans of the Netflix hit are hoping season 4 brings all the answers. (Netflix has not yet commented on the show's future.) One of the biggest mysteries surrounds bakery truck owner Paige Lassiter (Lexa Doig). The third season finds bartender Preacher (Colin Lawrence) caring for Paige's son, Christopher (Chase Petriw). Christopher lives with him, and Preacher takes him to camp, helps him memorize his lines for a play, and acts as a father figure, all while protecting the young boy from harm. But all of this has viewers asking ...

... what happened to Paige?

Paige first appears in season one of Virgin River as a single mom with a mysterious past. As the owner of the local bakery truck, she develops a relationship with Preacher, who regularly picks up pies to serve at Jack's Bar. Paige tends to keep her distance from the other townspeople and only deals with cash to avoid a paper trail.

In season two, Preacher begins to uncover some details about her past when he finds her driver's license with the name "Michelle" on it. Paige finally trusts Preacher enough to tell him that she relocated to Virgin River from Florida and changed her name after escaping an abusive relationship with Christopher's father, Wes (Steve Bacic). Wes, a police officer, filed a report claiming that Paige abducted their son. Wes eventually tracks her down and tries to take Christopher and Paige back to Florida with him. Paige and Wes get in a fight, ending with Paige pushing Wes down the stairs to his death. Paige calls Preacher for help. He helps her get rid of Wes's body, and Paige and Christopher leave town.

Later, a man claiming to be Wes's twin brother comes to Jack's Bar looking for Paige. The man threatens Paige, and her friend asks Preacher to take care of Christopher.

Fast-forward to the season 3 finale, when a woman who says she's Paige's friend tells Preacher that Paige is going to turn herself in but wants to see Christopher first. The woman takes Preacher to see Paige, but apparently drugs Preacher on the way, and he's last seen passed out in the woods. When Christopher returns to Preacher's house with Connie, Wes's brother is seen hiding in the shadows. Talk about a cliff-hanger!

Will Lexa Doig return to Virgin River?

We can't say for sure if Lexa will return to the show. Her IMBD only has her listed for the first two seasons, and she hasn't made any public announcement about coming back or has publicly promoted the show.
