    18 Of The Most Important Moments In "Virgin River"

    Honestly, there are SO many good ones. Season 3 can't come soon enough!

    Virgin River is one of Netflix's most binged dramas on the service, so here are the most pivotal, important moments of the show for anyone who wants to relive the magic or spoil themselves completely.

    1. When Mel and Jack ~basically~ get kidnapped by drug dealers in Season 1. She has to save Calvin's life or else!

    Can you even imagine moving to a new town and having that happen?

    2. The flashback of Mel going through losing her child.

    While finding out what happened was incredibly sad, it helped us understand how strong Mel is and some of why she came to Virgin River in the first place.

    3. Mel and Jack's dramatic first kiss. The moment we had been waiting for ~all~ of Season 1 had finally happened, and boy, was it dramatic.

    4. When the family comes in super sick, and Mel and Doc need to figure out why.


    Thankfully, they ended up figuring out that it was water contamination from Calvin's operation, because they saved their lives. What a crazy moment.

    5. The entire Mingle dance in Season 1.

    There were so many things that happened in that super-short amount of time!

    6. When Jack finds out in Season 1 that Charmaine is pregnant with his baby.

    After this, things get ~super~ complicated for Jack and Mel.

    7. When Hope accidentally spills the secret to Mel of Charmaine being pregnant.


    She assumed that Jack had already told her and, ya know, brought it up to her. Whoops!

    8. And, in Season 1, when Hope and Doc finally get together after all of the divorce drama.

    9. When Leo attacked Mel at the clinic while looking for opioids. Thankfully, Jack was nearby and heard Mel screaming.

    10. The confrontation between Calvin, Jack, and Brady after Mel was attached by Leo. One word: intense.


    11. When Mel and Jack finally (!!) agree to be together in Season 2.

    12. When Paige accidentally kills her abusive ex-husband and Preacher helps her cover it up.
