In the latest episode of Debbie Macomber's Cedar Cove, Jack and Olivia face the probability of a long distance romance, and Jack begins his new job with an unexpected ultimatum. The episode entitled Engagement airs on Saturday, September 12 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Hallmark Channel.

Olivia (Andie MacDowell) and Jack (Dylan Neal) consider the inevitable challenge of a long distance relationship as Jack begins his new job as chief editor in Seattle. But Jack soon finds himself at an impasse with his boss David (Bruce Dawson), who questions Jack’s ability to meet his bottom line, causing an immediate rift.

Meanwhile, Paul (special guest star Colin Ferguson) is avoiding a second date with Alex (Rebecca Marshall), as Olivia pressures him to take a chance on love. When she touches a raw nerve, a vulnerable Paul finally confesses the surprising truth about his feelings. Then, Justine (Sarah Smyth) weighs whether Luke’s (Jesse Hutch) decision about a future family is a deal breaker before making a confession of her own, Grace (Teryl Rothery) secretly plans her own wedding shower and Rebecca (Cindy Busby) shows a new side of herself when she sees the consequences of her obsessive overachieving at work.

And as Will (Cameron Bancroft) promises to shape up in hopes of starting fresh with his sister, Olivia is cautiously optimistic – until Will’s latest mishap proves she was right all along. Then, just as Jack serves David an ultimatum, a couple’s dispute in her courtroom prompts Olivia to give her own relationship a fighting chance before she presents Jack with a loaded question.

Cedar Cove also stars Brennan Elliott (“Warren”), Timothy Webber (“Moon”), Sebastian Spence (“Cliff”), Elyse Levesque (“Maryellen”), Tom Butler (“Buck”), Mike Dopud (“Roy”), Anna Van Hooft (“Linnette”), Tara Wilson (“Gloria”), Sarah Jane Redmond (“Corrie”), Clare Filipow (“Lisa”) and Sebastian Gacki (“Tom”).
