Goodbye, John Jr.!
14 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

John Junior is remembered best as Mary Ingalls' first boyfriend. I really liked him, that is until the episode where he breaks poor Mary's heart! And though he's the star of this episode, we never see him. Sadly, he has been killed in an apparent wagon accident. Mr. Edwards (glad to see him back!) is so distraught he wants Charles to go with him.

I'm not going to give away the story of this one, but it's a pretty surprising turn of events and in the end justice is served. I will say, though, that this is a turning point in Mr. Edwards' life. If you don't know, he returns later this season in quite a surprising way. I don't like that the story went this route, and I don't like that they changed Grace to a different character. I liked the regular Grace much better. But things don't bode well for Mr. Edwards.

Anyway, this is a pretty emotional story so consider yourself warned.
