Storyline

Nellie is less than willing to go into the hospitality business, but gives it her best go when, in an effort to impress handsome young Almanzo Wilder, tries cooking dinner. Only thing is, Laura volunteers to cook instead and makes Nellie's meal the hottest dish in town. Later, Nellie learns that Laura is studying to be a teacher and volunteers to help her study ... but conveniently forgets to tell her that the study material won't help her one bit. An angry Laura confronts Nellie and the two get into a huge fistfight that leaves both girls very muddy. Almanzo breaks up the fight and takes her back to his place to clean up and cool off ... then Charles steps in and thinks that the much-older Almanzo is taking advantage of his 15-year-old daughter.

Almanzo
11 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In my opinion, Almanzo is what makes this season great!

When the first part of this episode ended, Nellie was losing her mind after Laura put pepper on the chicken instead of cinnamon. Caroline pulls her daughter out of school and demands she go to apologize to Nellie - who is still crying. But when Laura was told she'd be apologizing to Almanzo next, she ran away saying she wouldn't do it. She did eventually when her father told her she could go on her own.

Nellie gets Laura back really good by lying to her about how much history is in the education certificate test. The famous mud-scene is shown.

I really, really like this two-part episode. We learn the personality of Almanzo, though his treatment of Laura is a bit odd. He, a mere stranger, gives Laura a kiss on the forehead for good luck. He takes Laura to his house and let's her change into his robe. Though it's a bit odd, it works for me because it creates situations that drama is made for! It's almost like Almanzo knows Laura has a crush on him and is so flattered he plays along with her. Oh well, whatever the cause, it makes for good entertainment!
