Kate wants to support Bobbie Jo in the upcoming spelling bee in any way she can, but it may be a losing battle against stuck up but admittedly excellent speller Henrietta Watson. Regardless, Cora Watson, Henrietta's equally stuck up mother, protests Sam's new appointment as judge since she feels he will be biased in favor of Bobbie Jo, the daughter of his best friend. As such, Mr. Douglas, newly arrived in the valley, is appointed the new judge. Whoever the judge, Bobbie Jo doesn't seem to have a chance of winning as she doesn't have the confidence to win, that is until she finds a scarab ring, which coincides with her getting flooded with good luck. Slowly, all the Bradleys and Uncle Joe begin to believe in the power of the ring when they too receive what they want when wearing it. Bobbie Jo feels she can't lose the spelling bee with the ring on her side. She learns the true power of the ring after the spelling bee's conclusion. Written by
