Saying goodbye to what you thought would be the rest of your life can never be easy. The last episode of Season 4 shows excitement as Charles and Caroline finally come to a decision on how they'd keep their family together while surviving in a town that was falling apart. Of course, the only way it would work to keep Melissa Sue Anderson's character of Mary Ingalls on the show would be to keep her with the family. So...since the only logical thing would be for her to teach (which, by the way, never happened in real life), her family would fall her.

Saying goodbye to Mrs. Sims was difficult enough. Who didn't cry when we had to do that. But at the beginning of this episode, we watch as Mrs. Olsen and Caroline Ingalls say goodbye with tears. Charles and Jonathan do the same.

Then we meet a new main character of the show - Albert Ingalls. I think that Michael Landon was smart enough to know that with Mary now blind and getting married - having a life of their own, and with them being in the fifth season, Albert would need to be brought in to add a new element to the show. And he did excellent. Granted the whole Albert character is totally fiction - made up in, I'm assuming, the mind of Michael Landon; but if you separate what's real from what works, I think it was excellent. Of course, Laura and Albert's relationship is a total hit of chemistry right off!

By the end of this episode, we are assure that there's enough chemistry and enough of a story line to make this another promising season...
