‘Virgin River’: Who Started the Fire at Jack’s House?

Virgin River, Netflix’s hit series based on Robyn Carr’s book series of the same name is coming back in 2022. The series follows Mel Monroe (Alexandra Breckenridge), a nurse from Los Angeles who moves to begin healing from her past. From there, Mel falls for Jack Sheridan (Martin Henderson), a bar owner and retired Marine. However, their love story hasn’t been so free-flowing.

Since Mel has been in town, Jack has learned he’s expecting twins with his ex-girlfriend, Charmaine (Lauren Hammersley), he’s been shot, and his house has been burned down. But who set his house aflame?

Who started the fire at Jack’s house in season 3?

Since there has been so much focus on who shot Jack, many fans have forgotten that someone burned down his home. Now fans are trying to piece together the arsonist.

“Who started the fire at Jack’s house? Coincidence? I doubt it,” one Redditor said via Express. “I haven’t read the books but my guess is that Charmaine did that?” Other Virgin River fans claimed that the fire was due to an electrical issue, not arson. However, some people think that Charmaine’s new husband Todd (Patrick Sabongui) had something to do with it. “In my opinion someone tampered with something,” the Redditor said.

“I don’t know who but it wasn’t an accident,” one person said. “I vote for Todd too.”

We think that Jack getting shot and the fire at his home are connected.

We will find out who shot Jack in ‘Virgin River’ Season 4

If the person who shot Jack is the person who also started the fire that burned down his home we will find out in season 4.  “If we get the actual reveal [in season 4], it would detail more of how this all was intertwined,” Tenney told Us Weekly. “The webbing of that story goes all the way back to the first season, so it’s a connective tissue that goes through four seasons.”

For now, Henderson says he’s aware who pulled the trigger on his character. “I know,” he told Entertainment Weekly. “And the fact that I know makes me feel like the audience is going to find out. It would be unfair to the audience to not have that result. That would feel a little tacky to string them along and then keep it a mystery. There has to be a resolution, and obviously, it further complicates his relationship with Brady and it’ll be nice to see some of that stuff resolved hopefully too, and maybe heal going forward.”
