Jack Thornton (When Calls the Heart)
Do you ever see a character and are automatically turned off by their behavior? That’s how I felt upon meeting When Calls the Heart’s Jack Thornton. I flat out couldn’t stand him and didn’t want him anywhere near sweet Elizabeth. And to be honest, I was a little worried with how the series would try to justify his unkindness, but I was pleasantly surprised by the fact that it gave him an arc worth discussing while helping him become a character worth loving. I did imagine that I’d grow to care for Jack eventually but I never imagined the fact that he’d become one of my favorite characters some day. And when a series is able to do that, we can be certain of the fact that it’s done an excellent job in storytelling through character development. Jack Thornton is tremendously honorable, irrevocably loving, and profoundly understanding.
