Storyline

James continues to linger in a coma, weeks after being shot during a bank robbery in Sleepy Eye. Charles refuses to believe his son is virtually dead and, as the weeks pass, becomes verbally abusive to his family and friends. Unable to deal with mounting pressure by the others to let James die in peace, Charles leaves home and takes his adopted son with him. In the woods, Charles builds an altar and prays to God for a miracle. Written by Brian Rathjen <briguy_52732@yahoo.com>

Quotes

Charles Ingalls: God isn't going to let my son die.
Dr. Hiram Baker: What happened in Sleepy Eye had nothing to do with God! It was a bank robbery. Your son happened to be there at that moment. There's no one to blame except the man who shot him.

Alright Episode
2 September 2010 | by (New Brunswick, Canada) – See all my reviews

This is one of the episodes of Little House that I just cannot get sucked into. I mean, I know James was special to Charles, but how long has he known him, maybe just over a year? I can't make a connection to how Charles would literally lose his mind over James, if it was Albert then maybe, but not James. The religious scene at the end was over the top and did not feel like Little House at all, and even though it was a fine episode, it definitely should not have been the series finale (Little House: A New Beginning came after).

I love Little House on the Prairie a lot, but this episode is just too out there for me to enjoy.
