Something was brewing between Amy and Finn in Heartland Season 16

Amy Fleming is the central character in the Heartland series. She is the sister of Lou Fleming, the youngest child of Tim Fleming and Marion Fleming, the granddaughter of Jack and Lyndy Bartlett, the mother of Lyndy, and shares a half-sibling relationship with Shane Grenier.

In the pilot episode, Amy experienced intense grief over the tragic loss of her mother, Marion, who sadly lost her life in a car accident while trying to save Spartan. Her sorrow was intensified by her inability to attend her mother's funeral because of the injuries she had suffered in the same accident.

As the story unfolded, over time, Amy discovered that she shares her late mother's remarkable gift of bonding with and aiding horses.

She was married to Ty Borden. However, Borden died a few years ago on the show. Now, two years later, Amy seems to have found a new love interest in Finn.

Canadian actor Robert Cormier made his debut as Finn Cotter in episode 1508 of Heartland. He portrayed the skilled farrier who first arrived at the ranch with his grandfather and their Shire horse.

Ever since the character's debut, he has significantly impacted Amy's life. He started as a friend and a possible love interest, but saw many ups and downs throughout the seasons. Finn initially stood Amy up, leaving her disappointed, only to return and persuade her to grant him a second chance.

However, recent developments have led to heartbreak, not just on screen, but in reality as well.
