WARNING: This text comprises spoilers from Virgin River season 4.
Jack Sheridan (played by Martin Henderson) could barely contain his excitement within the season 4 finale of Virgin River after fiancée Mel Monroe (Alexandra Breckenridge) confirmed he was the daddy of her unborn baby. The pair eventually had a paternity test after months of anxiously waiting to find if Mel’s ex Mark (Daniel Gillies) could’ve been the dad – or whether or not they even wanted a paternity test to start with. The moment left Netflix viewers in tears but a latest theory from Express.co.uk could suggest Jack is probably not the actual father – here’s why.
It is because there are a handful of clues from the scene where Jack and Mel discover the paternity test results which are reasonably questionable.
Could it’s that Mel lied in regards to the test results to be able to ensure she and her beau could have a blissful family unit?
The primary piece of evidence comes from Jack’s surprise when Mel is notified that she has received the outcomes.
“Well, that was only like… two days ago,” Jack said to Mel in shock, surprised the outcomes were back so soon.

Jack eventually talked Mel into showing him the outcomes, as he touchingly told her: “Hey, if it’s not we will probably be upset and disillusioned, sure. We all the time knew that was a possibility from the start, right?
“So we’ll deal. We’ll move on and we’ll give attention to starting our family. I don’t care what that email says, I like you. And I’m gonna love our baby a lot.”
Did Mel wish to delete the e-mail to make sure a fraudulent set of results never got here to light – she even told Jack she was “sorry” although claimed she was apologetic about using the embryos Mark helped create.
The third and final clue which will suggest the outcomes were faked was the jargon utilized in the e-mail and Jack’s inability to know them.
The emailed results said: “The alleged father shouldn’t be excluded because the biological of the tested child.”
“Not excluded?” Jack said, puzzled by the wording while Mel quickly told him: “It means that you just’re the daddy and we’re having a woman!”
Nonetheless, before Jack could read the remainder of the outcomes, Mel slammed her laptop shut, failing to elucidate to him what the complicated results meant intimately.
Could she be worrying Jack would determine the outcomes were faked if he checked out the too long? Could this explain her haste in shutting her laptop?
Fans can have to attend until season five arrives to see if Mel was lying in regards to the results – but there are actually some curious pieces of evidence to support the speculation.
Virgin River seasons 1-4 can be found to stream on Netflix now.
