Mrs. Oleson spreads word that Albert had gotten Sylvia pregnant. Caroline knows this isn't true and confronts her nemesis over this misinformation. Mr. Webb decides that, because of the shame his daughter's ordeal brought him, they will move from Walnut Grove. Sylvia decides she'd be happier with Albert, and the two decide to get married. When Mr. Webb finds out Albert had visited her (despite a no-guests rule), he calls Sylvia a whore, and she runs away. Albert - who had gotten a job as at the blacksmith's shop - later helps search for Sylvia, but lets slip as to her whereabouts to the blacksmith. It all leads to one final confrontation.

Beautiful, striking, and disturbing.
7 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just got done watching both parts of this episode tonight and felt extremely moved when finished. I saw it for the first time about six years ago and felt about the same way then, but this time it was different because I learned something I hadn't known before and also since I had known about the episode over the years. Now when I saw it for the first time I found it very compelling to depict how those under the adult stage of life can have such a powerful bond and close relationship that most people think only adults are capable of. As Albert and Sylvia first orient themselves with each other as classmates they realize their differences and how their families aren't quite the same and don't get along excellent but deep down feel the reality of these issues don't have to get in the way of anything they set if they try hard enough not to let it. From the beginning to the end these things become more and more evident and when Sylvia is raped, Albert although at first doesn't realize Sylvia had not had this happen intentionally, eventually comes to see he was wrong and that he had been foolish for not giving himself a chance to question the situation (like what happened between Jack and Rose in Titanic 1997). What I didn't know until tonight though was that at the end of the episode Sylvia dies as was stated by the previous reviewer. This of course makes it obvious why the further life of the two together is never seen and Sylvia never again surfaces in the series. I felt horrible about this, but I still find it to be one of the most moving episodes of the series and think that it should serve as an example to everyone both then and now of what young people can do despite their ages or what older people think. At the end though which is still very heart wrenching it's good to know that she died peacefully and at the hands of the love of her life after he gives her a final kiss (her last words were "kiss me my love"). I also feel good to have grown up in the era when this was made even though I didn't see it till I was an adult. I later found out that Olivia Barash who plays Sylvia was in many other wonderful and stunning movies and TV shows as a young actress.
