When Charmaine confessed at the end of Virgin River Season 4 that Jack wasn’t the father of her twins, we were floored. We were also desperate to know which resident of the sleepy town did put those buns in her oven.
Virgin River Season 5: Who’s In? Who’s Out?
We figured it had to be a character we already knew — you know, for the sake of drama — and we considered just about every potential dad in town. Could it have been Brady? Or Mike, perhaps? What about that stud Ricky? As it turns out, we guessed every man except for the one it actually turned out to be.

Among the many twists thrown at viewers in Episode 10 of Virgin River’s now-streaming fifth season is that the father of Charmaine’s twins is… wait for it… Calvin!
The big reveal came at the end of the hour, and Charmaine was just as surprised to see Calvin as we were. “I thought you were dead,” she told him, to which he replied, “Yeah, so did the person who tried to kill me. I don’t have to hide from her anymore.” (Gee, and here we thought that Melissa Montgomery going to prison would be a good thing.)
“What do you want?” Charmaine asked, understandably. And just in case you hadn’t already put the pieces together in your head, Calvin responded, “I want to be a father to my boys.”
Well, that’s one mystery solved. But now we need to know how the heck these two got together in the first place. And what does he really want from Charmaine? Because there’s no way this monster has a paternal bone in his body.
Those answers will have to wait until Virgin River Season 5 resumes with Part 2 (aka a pair of holiday episodes) on Thursday, Nov. 30. Come to think of it, we wouldn’t be surprised if Charmaine has already given birth by then.
