Fans of Hallmark Channel’s “Chesapeake Shores,” which focuses on the drama within the Maryland-based O’Brien family, have had quite an emotional time of it lately, thanks to Jesse Metcalfe’s exit this spring. Now, they’re starting to wonder if another fan favorite is planning to leave the pristine landscape depicted in the show.
In the eighth episode of Season 5, O’Brien patriarch Mick (played by Treat Williams) receives a mysterious package. Per the TV Insider recap of Sunday night’s episode, an anonymous sender reminds him, “You were a great friend of mine. We got each other through the toughest of times of our lives.” The mysterious person then asks him to scatter his ashes over the islands of the Chesapeake Bay, where he had happy times. Mick tracks down the sender but doesn’t recognize the name until his daughter, Abby (Meghan Ory), realizes he got the name wrong. The sender turns out to be a bartender named Buzz, who Mick confided in after his wife, Megan (Barbara Niven), left him.
