Storyline

The Ingalls, Garveys, Olsens, and Albert get back to Walnut Grove to find it run down and in shabby condition. Lars Hansen found Walnut grove over 50 years ago, and now that it is in this poor condition, and he suffered a stroke, he is much like the town--on its last leg. The Ingalls and the Garveys go to the farms around town to let everyone know of their plans to fix the town up to restore it to its former glory. Written by Anonymous

When this part of the two-part episode over, Charles and Caroline are getting ready to leave. There's excitement, but Charles is a bit upset. Surprisingly, Caroline is taking the news of leaving her first born behind very well. This has always bothered me a bit, but then we need to focus on Charles. He cries as he says goodbye to Mary. Caroline's actions are a bit disappointing.

But there's another reason Charles doesn't really want to leave. Mary isn't the only person he's leaving behind. There's a boy who's tugging at his heartstrings, and Charles uses great psychology in talking Albert to go to Walnut Grove with him. When they arrive there, it's a whole new feeling to the show. Mr. Hansen, whom we've come to love during the first four seasons of the show, is now old and dying. In fact, this is his last episode. Dr. Baker and Reverend Alden return. And there we have the core of the show for the rest of this season.

Watching the town die at the end of Season 4 was sad, and watching it come back to life gives us hope and something to look forward to. We watch the town wake up and begin to come alive as there is talk about the store opening, the church, and the school. What else does a town possibly need?
