In another snap, Doc and Hope could be seen back together - and dressed rather well, which perhaps indicates that their vow renewal ceremony will feature this season after being scrapped in season three.
As fans will know, Annette O'Toole, who plays Hope, was notably absent from season three after the coronavirus pandemic made it impossible for her to join the rest of the cast during filming in 2020.
