Fans will have to bid farewell to Kris and Junior as Wildfire
concludes tonight after a four-year run. The teen drama, which premiered on June 20, 2005, revolves around the world of horse racing and a young girl named Kris Furillo, who, after serving time in a juvenile detention facility, works as a stablehand and later a jockey at Raintree Farm. While at Raintree, Kris discovers romance and competition with Raintree's rivals, the prestigious Davis Farm, all while rising to stardom in the racing world.
In the first part of the series finale episode called “The Ties That Bind,” which aired last week, Junior got back from his business trip and was offered a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to relocate to Alaska for a year to work on a geothermal project, before Kris gets one last race on Wildfire in the Tucker Stakes. Kris and Junior finally announced their plans to get married after the race. Unfortunately, all the merriment was short-lived as they discover that Wildfire has been stolen.
In the second part of “The Ties That Bind,” Junior has an important decision to make on the day of Kris and Wildfire's big race.
Just when everything seems to be going downhill, things start looking bright for Kris. Wildfire miraculously returns just in time for the Tucker Stakes. On the other hand, an urgent matter in Alaska unfolds and Junior is requested to abruptly leave for Alaska on the day of Kris' big race. Will Junior miss the big race or his “big” day? Find out tonight at 9/8c in the series finale of Wildfire
on ABC Family.
