Poor Caroline
24 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of those memorable episodes because Laura becomes pregnant with Rose. Almanzo is, of course, shocked and jumps through the roof he and Charles were fixing. He's pretty sweet telling her not to erase the board anymore, etc...

But the main story is about Caroline. She thinks she's pregnant, but is really going through "the change." She gets very emotionally distraught. I can only think that here hormones are really flipped out and that's why she gets the way she gets. I don't know that women really behave that way when they find out they are going through the change. Besides that, it was only three years ago or so that she really thought she was going through it. So why did she suddenly get so hysterical???

With the exception of Laura/Almanzo, the entire episode is pretty crazy and unbelievable. Definitely not one of my favorites.
