Shame on Mary!
18 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I did not like Mary in this episode! She was hateful and mean and I just can't see Mary jumping to such an awful conclusion. I think the way she treated her mother - the lack of faith she had - was a bit disgusting, and I was just waiting for her mother to slap her! The emotional scene that followed was a bit unbelievable and hard to stomach.

Chris was a sweet man. I found myself feeling sorry for his wondering spirit. From the looks of things, I think he would have made a really great husband and father. I hope he did maybe finally find that person and settle down in the next town...

Mrs. Olsen and Nellie were their own bad selves. Mary's punching Nellie was funny, but a bit out of character as well.
