Grandpa Fogarty lives in a rundown old farmhouse with his young grandson Woody. The McCains are neighbors and Lucas repeatedly tries to get the old man to send the boy to the local school. He refuses, leading some of the ladies in North Fork to think he's not fit to be raising a child and that Woody should be taken from him. Grandpa is dead set against it until he learns that someone from his past may be gunning for him. As much as it hurts him, he decides to give up the boy without any explanation. Written by
