Meanwhile, Bill recruits an old friend to help him track down a band of gun runners, Elizabeth instructs her students on the importance of earning - and giving - respect, Carson and Faith attempt to keep their budding romance a secret from the townspeople, and a new arrival in Hope Valley surprises everyone...and Elizabeth in particular.
