Mrs Oleson's farewell
12 March 2008 | by See all my reviews

It's the last episode where Mrs Oleson (McGregor) plays a prominent part.She briefly appears in "Hello and Goodbye" and is absent from the three final episodes.But what makes this "May I have this dance ? " so endearing is that ,for the first time in nine years,Mr and Mrs Oleson show romanticism.That makes this episode the most unexpected one.

Willie is at the crossing of the roads:shall he go to college or shall he marry Rachel?For his proud mother,this girl who wants to steal his clever son from her is not worth any king's shilling.But Willie,like Nellie before him has become more mature and he has understood that the only way to become a true man is to leave his stifling milieu.

I must say that the Olesonless episodes -with a few exceptions-fail to excite me.
