‘Flashpoint’ spoilers ahead: Sam and Jules reveal a huge development in their relationship
There were hints earlier on this season, even as early as the second episode, but in Thursday’s episode, Sam and Jules revealed the biggest development in their relationship yet…
Warning: HUGE spoilers ahead!!
“What are the chances? We’ve always been so careful!” Jules says to Sam, in a rare scene outside of work.
And then it comes out – Jules is seven weeks pregnant!
“I feel really scared,” she admits, adding, “I can’t believe how much I want this baby.”
“Me too,” says a clearly thrilled Sam.
They quickly hit a point of contention, however: “You’re not allowed to do that – treat me like I need bubble wrap,” Jules insists Sam as he’s hovering over her, offering her herbal tea. “I don’t want you to change on me.”
“They’re definitely scared about it, but more than anything, they’re really excited for this chapter,” says actress Amy Jo Johnson.
“Certainly there was some worrying and fretting and they have to walk that line between doing their job and being teammates and being together,” adds actor David Paetkau. “Adding a third to that, a kid in there, complicates things.”
Even though Jules she insists nothing’s different, in the first hot call of the day Team One ends up trapped in an alley way under sniper fire.
It’s not an easy transition for Jules, but as Sam puts himself in the line of fire, she begins to realize how things are changing now that she’s carrying a baby.
“He sees me as more fragile and is more nervous,” Johnson says about Sam. “And throughout the episode, I think I start to understand that there are two people instead of just taking care of myself.”
At the very end of the episode, after asking Sgt. Greg Parker in the gun cage what it’s like to be a cop and a parent, Jules concedes that Sam is right, being pregnant does change things. “I could’ve lost you today,” she says.
“You could lose me any day,” he responds.
“But the two of us could’ve lost you today,” she says.
“The priority of life takes on a whole new meaning when your partner is pregnant!” adds Paetkau.
Uncle Parker, Uncle Spike and Uncle Ed? I can’t wait!
