There is only one bright spot in this routine plot.
25 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As another reviewer stated, this is a situation that popped up way too many times during the series run. If it wasn't Hoss then it was Adam, or Joe or even Candy falling in love with a wide-eyed female and then getting their guts ripped out at the end of the show. In this episode it will be Hoss' time to fall in love only to get rejected during the show. But unlike most of the regular plots, we get to find out about how the woman's life turned out even after rejecting a Cartwright son.

This time a young female named Margie Owens, who is a life-long friend of Hoss, rejects Hoss in order to travel the world with a slick well-dressed man named Mark Connors. The well mannered gentleman that claims to have been all over the world slides right in and steals the heart of Margie right under the nose of Hoss. Leaving the viewer feeling for the large frame star that lost his life long friend.

This is a plot that was played over and over again during the fourteen years run. But unlike others, the bright spot was that the story continued and revealed what happened after the rejection. Without giving anything away, it was worth seeing the effect or people decisions.
