It pays to be the smart one in the bunch
21 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

John Anderson did it again - made me hate his character. How could any father treat his daughter in such a manner - a rope around her neck and displaying her as if she were his best cow! I think Sam would have done good to shoot that man - he's scum and deserved to die!

I loved the look on Sam's face when he sees Abigail for the first time. It was priceless. I've said it once, and I'll say it again: He's definitely a MAN!

And where was Tess during this episode? Was she at school? There's no mention of her. I wonder why she was dropped from the show? Granted, she was no Mark McCain, but she was still a sweet little girl who added a bit of sweetness to the show!

And that was pretty smart of Sam to pull the wool over their eyes like he did. I really believed he was reading from the civil code book of his...I had no idea they didn't have a law in place to prevent a father from selling his daughter into slavery - how sad...
