Lori touches on this during the live chat and explains that Daniel really could never be replaced. She explained the writers didn't feel like that was possible. Erin and Daniel have such a great chemistry together that it wouldn't have been the same with someone else playing the part.

They knew that the actor wouldn't be coming back so just sending him away wasn't a great idea. They also talked about a possibility of a break-up, but they knew that Jack would never leave Elizabeth that way. Death was the only way that he would leave Elizabeth and the fans know this about the character.

They wrote it for the fans

Lori Loughlin explained that they tried to give the fans everything they wanted from this relationship. They gave them an engagement, a wedding and even a baby on the way for Jack and Elizabeth. Lori thinks it was a great season. She hopes that the fans will continue to support them after this happened. Some fans are saying they won't stick around, but there is a lot of story left to tell on this show.

Daniel also shared that he needed to leave the show for reasons that are very personal to him.

He still has a great relationship with Hallmark, so you never know when he will show back up on their channel doing something. Erin and Lori have known this was coming for a while and it was hard for them to keep it quiet. They really hope that the fans will stick around for Season 6. Erin even got pretty emotional about how she is going to miss Daniel being around. The next season should be a lot happier with the new baby on the way.
