An excited Uncle Joe comes bearing news. Kate's first boyfriend, Walter O'Connor, who is now a major league baseball manager, is coming to stay at the Shady Rest. Uncle Joe's excitement is primarily for Betty Jo as he sees her as a potential major leaguer, a stronger prospect if Walter has indeed come back to court Kate. As Uncle Joe and girls contemplate a rekindling of their mother and Walter's romance, a nervous Kate doesn't want to presuppose anything about Walter's visit. While Kate is excited to see Walter, she is still just as anxious and nervous about him actually asking her to marry him. Regardless of Walter's intentions, his presence alone makes Sam come to the realization that he too has feelings for Kate, which may complicate things for her. Written by
