Alex the Great
1 March 2008 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

The boys are still in Oregon, working for a timber firm this time when an Italian woman named Lucia (Arlene Martel, well known as Spock's bride T'Pring in "Amok Time) arrives, claiming to own Oregon. It turns out she was a small child in 1943 who was befriended by a local boy named Alex who "deeded" her possession of the state and its many trees. She has come to sell the state so she can get a replacement Madonna for her village.

Her story touches Morrison (John Larch, who was just on the show three episodes ago as the Sheriff in "The Strengthening of Angels") who knew Alex and was raised with him by the crankly old Benjamin (Jay Flippen). Morrison hopes Ben will sell some of his old growth trees to get the girl some money so she can complete her quest. Only Benjamin hates everything that reminds him of Alex's death, particularly foreigners. When Alex died, he more or less shut out the rest of the world.

In addition to a touching story, there's some great footage of Oregon and trees being harvested and brought to the mill that is part of the beauty of this series: showing us places and people that other TV shows won't.
