In Virgin River season 5, there’s a brand new cast member who arrives in town to both save the day and shake up Preacher’s world. Kandyse McClure brings the strong and dedicated firefighter Kaia to life, and she’s an excellent addition to the cast.

When we first meet Kaia, she’s working with Mel and Cameron via a video call to help deliver the baby of a woman in distress when they’re unable to make it to the hospital. It’s an early showing of Kaia’s commitment to her job. She helps fight the Virgin River wildfire, but she also gets closer to Preacher… even though she has the baggage of an injured, fellow firefighter ex-husband.
