Army Wives Season 4
There were quite a few surprises in Season 3 and I'm sad to say the finale literally ended with a bang. Here's a recap of last season, which left us all hanging.
Claudia Joy's husband, Michael Holden, got promoted to major general. Hump Bar owner Roxy found out she is pregnant. The Hump Bar is in danger of being shut down, in fact, the entire military post is in danger of being shut down! Pamela's husband comes back home to find out the home is empty - she has left and taken the kids with her.
Joan's convoy in Iraq is being attacked as Roland is at home with their baby girl.
Denise and Frank were finally starting to rebuild their troubled marriage, but were facing tough challenges as parents. Their son Jeremy was having a hard time and the season finale ends as he pulls out a gun ...
Denise and Frank are walking back home together and they hear a gun shot.
So many open ends, so many sad twists.
And I think that's the biggest attraction of the show for us - we get hooked on the drama and the "what ifs" of life -- especially the army life. While some critics may argue the show's realistic portrayal of army life, the fans - we get it. The show isn't about army life per se, it's about life and the twists and turns, from the high joys to the scariest moments. Those of us who have experienced the army wife life know the drill: the deployments, the fear, the happy reunions at home comings. As well as the sorrows of losing someone you know.
But the feelings the "Army Wives" women go through - we all go through those in our own lives, army or no army. This show gives us a glimpse into a different lifestyle, where life can change instantly and not just due to love, relationships or even money - but due to politics and even war. There is always hope and joy in "Army Wives," and that's what the show is about. Showing us that while life isn't all pretty all the time, there is always hope, and we should hold on to our hope even when we feel there is nothing else left.
I am hopeful that we will see a lot of good things happening in this new season. There are ups and downs in life, and there sure have been many downs in the lives of the Army Wives - let's hope for an uplifting season premiere!
Since the last season of Army Wives ended, there was some exciting non-scripted news! Catherine Bell, who plays Denise, is pregnant. Bell and her screenwriter-husband Adam Beason already have a daughter, and announced that they are expecting a baby boy. It certainly makes me think what a twist in the show it would be if Denise also became pregnant!
I will be tuned in to Lifetime on Sunday, and am already thinking of ways that I can continue the "Home Decorating for Army Wives" series I started writing last season. We all are looking for easy ways to improve our homes, so I will keep those tips coming in the upcoming weeks -- with the "Army Wives" inspired twist!
