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

Autistic Kid Reviews Road to Avonlea: First Season
18 November 2016 | by pinkarraySee all my reviews

Me, being a person who hasn't watched this series since she was 12 and 15, (I used to love the series back when I was a little kid but once I got to a teenager, I didn't love it so much anymore, especially putting a saccharine series like this on repeat would be annoying).

This episode wraps of the first season of Sara's beginning adventures in Avonlea, where her father suddenly comes to take Sara home. This distresses Sara, since even though she had a hard time accepting being here in Avonlea in the first few episodes, she has adapted quite well to her family and has made many friends here.

Watching these characters grow was quite a joy and I loved the little Cecily character. But this has got to be by far, my least favorite episode of the series. Sure some other episodes weren't as good as the others such as "Malcom and the Baby" and "The Witch of Avonlea" but the predictable plot of moving didn't really interest me. Also, it was rushed.
