The Chesapeake Shores Season 6 premiere ended with Evan showing up at the O’Briens with a yacht for his and Abby’s first date. But the night wouldn’t end with a kiss — impulsiveness has wrecked his past relationships, just ask Scarlett Johansson. But that moment is coming, “when it’s time,” they agree. Elsewhere in the episode, Connor (Andrew Francis) begins his recovery following his heart attack, and Mick (Treat Williams) has us worried as he continues to pop painkillers.
Phoef Sutton: We had always intended her to choose Evan. He’s an exciting character and a really interesting match for her and a totally different match for her than Trace. Jay [Greyston Holt] is sweet, always there, and all that, but there wasn’t really a lot of passion there.
They’ll continue to banter. [Laughs] They have a friendship before they have a romance and that is a really good way to start. Their relationship will grow slowly and before you know it, they’ll be in it more than they perhaps had intended to be. … Did you like the yacht scene?
I thought about the yacht, and I thought, we can’t do a yacht, that would be crazy. I thought, well, maybe they can do special effects or something. But they got a yacht! [Laughs] They got an actual yacht. We parked in front of the house and did the whole thing out there. It was great.
