*WARNING: Spoilers ahead for Virgin River Season 4*

Love and loss have been a central theme of Virgin River ever since the show premiered on Netflix in 2019.

Season 4 is no different as the town is still coming to terms with the loss of Lilly in season 3 but following Hope’s car accident while heading to Lilly’s funeral, she is struggling to remember what happened to her beloved friend.

As well as Hope, Virgin River fans who are a little hazy on the events of previous seasons are also asking what happened to Lilly ahead of season 4.

Who was Lilly in Virgin River?

Lilly was introduced in season 1 as one of Virgin River’s many residents. She is the owner of her own farm, Tara’s mother and a close friend of several characters, notably Connie and Hope.

She quickly became a prominent character in Virgin River after a baby was abandoned at Doc Mullins’ clinic in the show’s opening episodes.

After Mel agreed to look after the infant, Lilly was revealed to be the baby’s mother after she was caught breastfeeding the baby while Mel took a break.

Lilly was suffering from postpartum depression and wanted to give up the child Mel named Chloe. However, with a little help from Mel and her friends, Lilly agreed to keep the baby.

Since then, Lilly has featured heavily in the series, almost selling her farm to Brady in season 2 while he was working on behalf of a gang of pot-growers. But after learning of his business partners, Lilly refused to sign over her farm.

What happened to Lilly in Virgin River?

Lilly’s story in Virgin River came to an end in season 3 as she passed away after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.

In the season’s early episodes, Lilly was noticeably tired and appeared unwell, with her daughter Tara believing she had too much on her plate.

However, at the end of episode 2, Lilly confirmed to Mel that she had been diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer.

Lilly kept her diagnosis secret for a few more episodes before finally confiding in Tara and Doc Mullins but she persuaded Doc not to tell Hope, who was away from town for much of season 3.

In episode 8, Lilly went to take a quick nap before dinner but when Tara came to wake her, she discovered that her mother had passed away after suffering a stroke in her sleep.  

In episode 9, the residents of Virgin River gathered together to bid farewell to Lilly but Hope did not make it back in time for the funeral with Doc learning at the end of the episode that she had been badly injured following a car accident on her way back to town.

Hope struggles to remember Lilly in season 4

Following her accident and the damage to her brain, Hope struggles to piece together her memories as she recovers throughout season 4.

While she can remember events from decades ago, including her and Doc’s first kiss, recent memories are more of a blur and she is unaware that Lilly passed away.

Hope gets distressed by Lilly’s absence, with her friends wrongly telling her that Lilly is still alive in an effort to comfort her. But Doc eventually is forced to confirm Lilly’s fate in a heart-wrenching scene.

Despite passing away in season 3, that wasn’t the last we’ve seen of Lilly as Hope experiences a vision of her late friend in episode 9, when she is in need of some much-needed words of wisdom and reassurance.
