The Romance, 27 February 2008
Author: garyldibert from United States

This episode aired on January 18 1973 with this opening. It was spring on Waltons Mountain, that special time when all of life seeks and finds its own renewal and strength; a time when the season, like the mountain, calls back those whose lives have taken them so many miles and years away from the land. One of those who were called back in that spring of 1933 was my mother's uncle. His name was Cody Nelson and he'd come all the way home from Cincinnati, Ohio. The show opens with its usual beautiful shots from a top of Waltons Mountain. I can never get bored from watching the views from this mountain because it does remind me of home. Down at the bottom of this mountain, Olivia receives a letter from her Uncle Cody who's coming for a visit. The last time Olivia saw her Uncle Cody was when she was eight years old. Uncle Cody arrives to Walton Mountain by the way of a bus and is picked up by John Boy. The banks are closed because of the depression but Cody tells Olivia that he's on a much needed vacation. After eating supper, Uncle Cody goes over and turns on the radio only to hear that the banks are still closed and will remain close for sometime. Uncle Cody decides its time to go to bed and the Walton women think it's time for Cody to go on a date with a local woman. However, the only woman in Charlotteville that could come close to Cody nature is none other then Cordelia Hunnicut who's been married four times already. The next day, John Boy takes Grandma and Olivia over to Widow Hunnicut place so Olivia can invite her to dinner. Meanwhile Grandpa who's been tangling with this big old catfish for the last 8 years takes Cody fishing. While sitting on the bank talking, reckless starts barking as Grandpa's fishing pole begins to bend. Therefore, Grandpa and Cody start into the water to get the old catfish until the catfish gets away and they both fall in. Later that night with Miss Hunnicut as there guest the family celebrates Uncle Cody 64th birthday. The next day John Boy takes Cody into town so that he and Miss Hunnicut can go to the matinée. Later that night as Olivia is laying in bed worrying about her uncle, she hears Miss Hunnicut car pulling up outside and Miss Hunnicut asking Cody if he would go dancing with her. Olivia is thinking that Miss Hunnicut is looking for husband number 5 and the question is how are Olivia and Grandma going to stop the romance that they started? I really didn't like this episode as I did the others as there wasn't no interesting plot to keep your attention. With that in mind, I give this episode only 5 weasel stars.
