"We're having a baby," Mel gushes before she begins suggesting baby names: "I like the name Indiana, or we could name him after you?" However, things take a strange turn when she then adds: "We also have to consider Mark."

Mark - who is Mel's deceased husband - then leaves Jack stunned by walking up to the couple. "Hey sweetheart," he greets her before the two share a kiss.

As fans will know, Mark's death took place before the series begins and is the reason why Mel decides to move to the remote town in Northern California, meaning that the scene is clearly not reality.

Fans wasted no time in speculating what could really be going on and commenting below the video after it was posted to Instagram, one said: "This has to be Jack having a nightmare. Omg!!! I can't wait!!"

Another was left thinking along the same lines, writing: "Definitely a dream, apparently Jack's having anxiety over the fact it might be Mark's."

"Yes!!!! But who is dreaming, is it Jack or Mel?!" a third asked while someone else added: "Omg hahaha maybe its just Jack's imagination?."

The synopsis for the new season reads: "Despite not knowing whether her baby belongs to her deceased husband, Mark, or Jack, Mel begins Season 4 with a sense of optimism. For years she yearned to be a mother and her dream is one step closer to reality."

"While Jack is supportive and excited, the question of paternity continues to gnaw at him," it continues. "Complicating matters is the arrival of a handsome new doctor, who's in the market to start a family of his own."
