Storyline

A local man and a friend of Murphy has a daughter he cannot control. At his wits end, Emmas father brings her to Gold Hill. She proves to be a bad influence on the Gold Hill kids, but trouble really comes when Emma falls in love with Murphy. She figures that if she gets Gold Hill closed down, Murphy will have to go off with her, so she tells Rodman of Murphy's secret. This creates a crisis and it looks like Rodman will finally have his way and have the kids transfered to the Claymore work camp. Meanwhile Fr. Parker continues to be blocked by Garrett in purchasing a building for a church. Written by dtwiddo@yahoo

Trivia

After Murphy proposes and the kids are gathered around cheering, watch the little blond boy (the one who always runs to the bathroom) - he puts his head down and hands over his head like he is going to be hit. See more »

Goofs

Mr. Rodman makes a curious statement when he visits Gold Hill and asks for a list of the children. He says he and Ms. Tuttle will be staying in town a few days and to bring the list to the hotel. But in the episodes 'The Spy' and 'Eight-Eight Keys to Happiness', he goes to see his mother and it is insinuated he lives there too, and his son lives there after 'The Spy' episode. In Episode 7, False Blessings, Ms. Tuttle asks "...where are we going for lunch?" and Mr. Rodman answers "I am going home." See more »
