Joe Kagen joins Charles and goes to Winoka because they're going to have an extra wagon to bring home. They get to the blind school and see the awful team of horses and the wagon that Mr. Standish tricked Adam into buying even though his contract clearly stated that he would have the best team in the stable. Charles takes the horses into the saloon and convinces Mr. Standish that those aren't his best team and wagon. Then, Charles is surprised in Winoka to find out that Harriet has joined them for the trip home. On the trip, Harriet says she prefers to walk instead of riding on the wagon with Joe. They go about a day and a half before meeting with the train on which Mrs. Terhune's school is meeting them. She is a black lady and has about 6-8 black blind children with her. Harriet is shocked that she is not the lady she thought she was. She acts rather stand-offish around the black children, and one little boy in particular can read her behavior.

Welcome Home Mary!
3 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The beginning of this episode was just as promising as the episodes before it. The blind school is traveling all the way from their old location to Walnut Grove. We soon figure out what Adam is so afraid of, and his story is a sad one; but Mary stays strong for her husband and shows her deep love and concern for him. This episode really develops Adam's character!

Mrs. Oleson meets Hester Sue, and is disappointed to learn that she and the rest of her students are black. But a small child changes Mrs. Oleson's heart. She really comes through and it's almost a mouth-opening, eye-popping turn around for the woman.

This episode leads up to yet another facet of the growth and character of Walnut Grove. With the blind school now there we'll have this character of the town until Mary and Adam's character leave the show in two or three seasons.
