This is a pretty dark episode about a man who finally cracks when his dishonest ways keeps him from getting money his family needs. He's also not happy that his daughter is seeing a boy he doesn't approve of. Out of anger, he flips and shoots his wife and daughter.

What follows is a night of terror when the man holds Laura, Jenny, and Rose hostage while Almanzo and the other men are out looking for him.

I'm disappointed that it doesn't show Jenny catching up with the men to tell them what happened. I'm also disappointed that it didn't show the family reunion scene. I think Almanzo needed more air time and moments where he was shown to be a loving husband/father/uncle. But I guess Laura is the star of the show...
