Never Seen How It Ended
10 November 2013 | by See all my reviews

At the time I caught this, the big intrigue was Caroline Ingalls being beat up by BJ Hunnicutt off MASH. I knew who LeVar Burton was, wasn't familiar with Chip Fields, and this was probably the first time I was seeing Howard Duff and Joan Blondell.

When I started watching this way way back, Farrell suddenly had Grassle cornered at the top of the stairs, Burton was beating up Fields and Duff threw Blondell thru a glass display cabinet.

The police were called on Burton and Duff. Duff was arrested. Can't recall what became of Burton.

The impact of Farrell beating Grassle began affecting their son, who was now yelling at mom as well.

I remember one bit where Grassle had stopped her car in the road or something, and some fellow came up and hit the door window, cracking it. Bless her heart.

Unfortunately, the power went out and I have never seen how this ended up for any of these.

I tried asking about (back then with no internet) and the best I could find is that at least one of the wives shot her husband, but don't know which. I think it was either Blondell or Fields (probably Blondell).

When Blondell got Duff out of jail the next morning, she was very apologetic and he turned and grabbed her by the face and said he'd belt her right now if they weren't outside the police station.

Would be interested to see how this ended sometime. The only bit I've managed to find online is pretty much the scene I recall.
