Meanwhile, Aunt Hetty grapples with loneliness and a potentially fatal back injury; Felicity searches for a new career; and Olivia considers moving back to Avonlea. Written by

About 20 characters from RTA vanished without even the slightest attempt to explain their whereabouts (including half the siblings in one family),and plot twists totally contrary to what RTA had explained. While it had a few good moments (and good perfomances by Jackie Burroughs as Hetty King and a shining cameo by Zachary Bennett as Felix King) to help it towards the end, they were not enough to offset the dreary tone throughout (with a disappointingly lackluster performance by Gema Zamprogna as Felicity Pike- who had done far better on the series) and overall, it wasn't worth the anticipation! Strictly for RTA fans willing to check their memory cells and logical reasoning at the door!
