Storyline

Hester Sue's ex-husband, Sam, arrives in Walnut Grove, stating that he is reformed from his days of drinking, gambling and wild living. Sam appears to be reformed and Hester Sue believes him enough to agree to re-marry him. Should Hester Sue turn the other cheek and forgive Sam, or is he psychologically controlling his former wife through a very clever series of lies to conceal his current lifestyle?

As we remember from the history of the show, Hester Sue was married once, and she'd never planned to be married again. Hester Sue has bitter memories of her ex-husband, so when he sows up in Walnut Grove wanting a second chance, she is completely against it.

Slowly, he wins the respect of the town. Hester Sue grows to respect him and even falls in love with him all over again. She agrees to marry him, but perhaps something can stay in their way.

There is an ethical question in this episode. If you see your friend's fiancé doing something wrong, do you have an obligation to tell that friend, or should you let them work it out? There's not a clear answer. Too often, love is blind. Reporting what you saw could only cause hurt feelings and push your friend to do the wrong thing, but telling could also save your friend from a bad mistake. I'm not sure what the answer was in Charles' and Caroline's situation, but perhaps they did the right thing. It all turned out okay in the end...

I really like Hester Sue. I think she's a very strong character. I don't believe she is there the last season...
