Storyline

While out on a walk with Sully, Brian climbs a tree to show he could fly like the eagle in Sully's story but falls and hits his head. At first every thing seems fine and the town gets ready to build a school house. Brian is really excited about it and goes to help Lorne but loses his sight. Lorne rushes him to Dr. Mike. Although she is certain of what it is she does not know how to fix it. She wires for a doctor in Boston to advise as to nearest specialist. Dr. Mike refuses to leave his bed side and when they finally get word that the specialist is coming they find that he had slipped into a coma. Sully finally shows back up after being gone for 2 days and Michaela being so scared blames Sully. When they find that the stage will take longer to get here Dr. Mike realizes that there is not other way but to do the operation herself. Written by Joanne H

One of the better episodes
27 August 2015 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

My only quibble with this episode is the clichéd portrayal of Sully as an anti-progress mountain man. This is always his view of life (he is opposed to mining, the railroad, elections, etc.), but in this episode it was illogical. He took a stance against building a little schoolhouse. His reasoning was paper-thin, explaining to Brian that the Cheyenne learn differently, without books. So what? Sully learned how to read and write. Sully also complained that the Cheyenne wouldn't be allowed to attend, but he doesn't want the Cheyenne attending a schoolhouse anyway. He made that clear in a future episode.

But having said that, I enjoyed this episode a great deal, especially the operation scenes and the town's joint efforts to quickly construct a school. The accusations Michaela threw at Sully felt credible and her feelings felt authentic, if off-base. Jake, Grace, Robert E, and the reverend also played vital roles.
