Who is Denny in Virgin River?

Denny Cutler arrives in Virgin River claiming to be the grandson of Doctor Vernon Mullins.

He first appeared in the season 3 finale and in episode 1 of season 4, he appears on Doc’s doorstep and divulges the jaw-dropping revelation.

Denny explains that he is the grandson of Rose Miller, a woman who Doc dated during college before they broke it off when Vernon ventured off to med school.

Doc had been told that Rose passed away decades earlier but Denny reveals that she is still alive while both his own parents have died; his mother when he was just a child and his dad only a month ago.

It doesn’t take long for Doc to reveal to the residents of Virgin River that he has a grandson and he introduces Denny to Lizzie and the pair quickly hit it off.

However, despite his pleasant introduction, not everything about Denny is as it seems, with Muriel urging Doc to be careful about the intentions of the new arrival.

Suspicion around Denny grows

While both he and Lizzie clearly like each other, Denny repeatedly pushes her away and tries to keep her at a distance.

In episode 5, Mel catches him breaking into the clinic’s medicine cabinet. Later in the season, suspicion continues to grow around Denny after Lizzie finds a bottle of clonazepam in his drawer that are prescribed for someone else.

After Hope invited Denny to come and live with her and Doc, we see that he also discovers files containing the clinic’s financial information.

Following Muriel’s warning about Laney Baxter, who had a ‘niece’ arrive and scammed her out of her money, it all appears to be happening again. Especially when we see Denny pay a visit to the bank to deposit a large sum of money.

What is Denny up to?

Denny is actually suffering from Huntington’s disease, which is terminal, and he wants to do some good before his time is over.

Huntington’s disease is a degenerative condition that stops parts of the brain working properly over time. It is usually inherited from a person’s parents, which Denny likely did from his father.

According to the UK’s NHS website, Huntington’s can cause difficulty concentrating, memory lapses, depression, mood swings. It can also cause difficulty moving, breathing and speaking.

The bottle of clonazepam (branded as Klonopin) that Lizzie found, was originally prescribed to Denny’s father but he has been using the drugs himself to alleviate his symptoms.

Denny’s illness is the reason why he keeps pushing Lizzie away as he doesn’t want to hurt her as his condition continues to worsen.

As for the trip to the bank, Denny wasn’t stealing money, he was actually paying off the mortgage on the clinic with insurance money he received after his father’s death. He wanted it to be a nice surprise to Doc and the team.
