Eric 'Hoss' Cartwright: No, not a sign.
Joseph 'Little Joe' Cartwright: Look, why don't we split up and meet up by that rimrock.
Eric 'Hoss' Cartwright: All right. Be mighty careful, Little Joe. If we get that old timber wolf all boxed in, he ain't gonna be at all sociable.

Falling for Evil
15 February 2014 | by Michelle PalmerSee all my reviews

I think this is one of the worst episodes. There's not much good to say about it. Tirza is pure evil. I didn't like the way she thought, the way she spoke, or the way she acted. I understand they had brainwashed her into thinking she was a witch, but by golly she gave me the creeps! Even more creepy was the fact that Little Joe fell for such an evil girl. And even more creepy - his father thought that she was a "nice girl"? I cannot imagine any fathers I know that would allow his son to marry a woman like that - she was just creepy!!!

I'm not sure what the writer's were thinking when they wrote this one. They didn't even change that witchey voice after she was "converted." All I can say is...what were they thinking? Yuck!
