An Affair of Dishes
2 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This isn't one of my favorite episodes. In the beginning, Mary is traveling with her father to the Widow Thurman's house with a set of new dishes all the way from...England maybe? Apparently her husband had ordered them for her before his death, built the house, worked on the woodwork, etc. Her husband seemed to have hung the moon.

Mary thinks her mother would love these dishes, but Charles thinks there are more important things than these impractical dishes. Now, I've never really known Caroline to be vain but for some reason she went goo- goo after hearing about the dishes. Charles then gets it in his head to secretly continue working for the pretty, young widow in exchange for the dishes.

What follows his filled with white lies, affair suspicions, and a nasty tongue from Mrs. Olsen. Mary and Laura's actions were quite surprising. You'd think they would be a little less suspicious, and Caroline's catching her husband in the act was rather good.

The worst part of this episode comes at the end when Laura states they used the dishes every night after that, when in fact the dishes are never seen again.
