WARNING: This article contains spoilers from season three of Virgin River. 

Virgin River fans waited tentatively throughout the newest 10 episodes to find out whether anyone would dare suggest Charmaine Roberts’ (played by Lauren Hammersley) twins were not Jack Sheridan’s (Martin Henderson). Ever since sparks flew between the bar owner and Mel Monroe (Alexandra Breckenridge), viewers have been begging the writers of the hit Netflix series to reveal the hairdresser cheated on Jack so he and Mel can live happily-ever-after and have their own family. But that moment is still yet to come and in the meantime, those watching at home noticed a plot hole when it came to Charmaine’s pregnancy.  

Taking to Reddit to discuss the characters who have got or are currently pregnant, user SnoozeFestPrincess asked: “Does anyone writing this show understand how pregnancy works?”

They then spoke, in-depth, about Lilly (Stacey Farber), Charmain, Mel and Brie’s (Zibby Allen) separate situations regarding babies. 

Speaking of Charmaine, the comment says: “[She] gets pregnant with twins, right before they break up even though they’ve been dating for 2 years and likely using some sort of protection (unless Jack is an idiot, which ok, he kind of is but to this extent?). 

“She gets a serious case of ‘more than morning sickness’ which means she was at least 6 weeks pregnant when that happened, and clearly stayed at Hope’s for at least a few weeks. 

“Then 3 weeks passed. Then at least a few more during the season 3. 

“She is now at least 4 months pregnant – how on earth does someone go through a breakup, find themselves a new man and get married before they even show with twins? Ok. Fine. FINE.” 

Fans will remember how Charmaine moved into Hope’s (Annette O’Toole) house and was put on bed rest, given a vitamin drip by Mel and even tried alternative therapies to help her stay calm enough for her blood pressure to reduce. 

She stayed there for several weeks, being monitored closely to ensure the babies were safe and a miscarriage did not occur. 

And before long, she was up on her feet, returning to work. 

At the end of season two, Charmaine told Mel she had been offered the chance to move closer to her aunt and uncle, where her babies could have more space to grow up and run freely. 

But then, in season three she introduced Todd (Patrick Sabongui) as her fiancé and the man who is determined to bring up the twins without Jack. 

To add to this, in recent scenes, Charmaine announced she had in fact married Todd in a quick ceremony – but when a full-body shot was displayed on screen, there was no sign of a pregnancy bump. 

It has not been confirmed how far into her pregnancy Charmaine is, but considering she is supposedly carrying twins, growth should be visible by now. 

Someone replied to the comment with: “Ugh. I agree. Charmaine not showing at all, and suddenly Mel appears to have had embryos implanted without ANY prep work in, what, a few days? A week? Bothers me so much. I can suspend some reality for the entertainment value but both of those really stick out at me too much to ignore.” 

“For real. Charmaine on serious bed rest, but within three weeks she’s pulling at the salon, engaged, and driving around town in her flashy new car..not to mention GIVING HER DOG AWAY,” another added to the thread. 

Someone else joked: “At this rate, Charmaine won’t give birth until Season 6.” 

It comes after the actress who plays Charmaine spoke out about the reaction her character brings. 

For the most part, the people who interact with me directly are very sweet,” Lauren said. “They’ll say they hate Charmaine, but they still like me, and they think I play her well. So that’s good.” 

As for Charmaine constantly creating new obstacles for Mel and Jack, the actress continued: “There are two sides to the story. 

“Charmaine really wanted Jack to be her person, but his heart belongs to Mel. It’s been a tough go for Charmaine, but I can see why people just want her out of the way, because of the chemistry between Jack and Mel.”

As for what Charmaine wants? “Love, a family and to be connected” Lauren explained. “Not just to Jack, but also to Hope. 

“She feels like she belongs at the salon, but she really wants to belong in Virgin River. 

“She’s got these shattered relationships, and I don’t think a lot of them are her fault, so I feel compassion for Charmaine. And now she’s pregnant, and the guy who did that to her is off with another woman. So that sucks,” TVLine published. 

Virgin River seasons one to three are available to watch on Netflix now.
