Blair Stanley makes an unexpected visit to Avonlea. He brings good news: the trial has concluded, and he has been acquitted. However, the business has to be rebuilt so he has much work to do. His plan is to take Sara back to Montréal tomorrow morning, his haste due to his strained relationship with Hetty. Upon meeting again, time has not healed any wounds between the two. Sara is happy to see her papa, but is saddened to leave Avonlea, especially that she will be missing the skating festival. But what's worse is that if she and Blair leave with Blair still on strained terms with Hetty, Sara will never return to Avonlea and never see her King relations ever again. Sara decides that she should have some say into what happens to her own life. Meanwhile, a bond seems to be forming between Olivia and Jasper beyond their professional collaboration at the newspaper. Hetty is afraid that she will lose both Olivia and Sara in one fell swoop. Written by Huggo

It's time for Sarah to go back home.
26 September 2007 | by (Houston, Tx, USA, Earth) – See all my reviews

This episode is one of the first season on the 3-disk DVD set "Tales from Avonlea". Sarah was supposed to be 10, but young actress Sarah Polley looks more like 8. It is remarkable that a series would be built around such a young actress, but it works because she is so good and so believable.

The episode, set in the snowy winter, is built around Blair returning to Avonlea to get Sarah and bring her back to Montreal. The trial is over and he has been cleared. Without any notice to his relatives in Avonlea, Blair just shows up and plans to leave early the next day with Sarah. That certainly causes a commotion, from several different angles. Sarah has made herself a home there with her relatives and other friends, and is not anxious to leave. Aunt Hattie has gotten attached to Sarah, and sees her as a substitute for her departed sister Ruth. So the whole episode is about the friction and resolving it.

Most of the healing needs to come between Hettie and Blair, each as stubborn as the other. In one exchange Hettie tells Blair, "I had planned to never speak to you again." At one point, Sarah decides to hide out, with the help of her cousins, until Blair and Hettie came to some kind of civil agreement. Good episode.
