Not so wild
26 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this first of two part episode, we meet Matthew. He is kept in a cage and made wild by a deranged, sick man who needs to be executed. He finally escapes and follows Jenny home. Almanzo isn't happy with the fact that Jenny wants to befriend him, but she talks him into letting him stay. But he can't stay at their house. Isiah takes him in.

It's discovered that Matthew suffers from morphine addiction (not the last time we'll hear about this drug playing a part this season), and his withdraws is what kept him wild.

I'm really happy with the turnout and the way most of the citizens of Walnut Grove have given into taking care of him. But someone is just about to make big trouble for Matthew!
