There's No Place Like Home!
9 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The episode opens in complete silence. You watch, wondering when you are going to hear some little noise. But when sound finally comes, there's nothing little about it. The wind suddenly explodes! A tornado comes and hits the Ingalls' farm. The worst part: it takes their whole crop!

Without even consulting his family, Charles makes the decision to sell the farm and move back to the Big Woods. Laura is very unhappy and disappointed in her farther. She thinks he's given up way too easily!

An older couple - The Sims (Isn't he the uncle of of James Cooper, or am I wrong?) decide they want to buy the farm. It's not surprising that they had once lived on the farm and moved away after a tornado struck the land. He purchases materials and helps with the repairs. Somewhere along the way, Charles' attitude changes. Is it too late?

There's a sub-plot in this episode between Mary and John Jr. Their I never noticed it before, but their romance just sort of pops up out of nowhere! It's cute seeing young, innocent love. And Mary does something totally shocking...I'm not saying what! But I think it's woodshed doings if she got caught, which she doesn't...

I always did like Laura and John Jr. and think the episode later in the next season where they break up is totally sad!
