I really liked this episode, particularly the ending! It sure was tense throughout after they thought the raccoon that had bit both Laura and Jack was rabid. The ending when Charles goes out to the barn and gets surprised by Jasper was just wonderful. I love how he runs into the house and hugs everyone and tells them that everything is going to be just fine. Great ending!
I found a few things to be strange in this episode:
It seemed out of character for Charles to let Laura keep the raccoon, even if it was just for a while. They are not pets, and as you could see in the video, they are dangerous. I also found it to be a bit out of character for Mary to bring the raccoon home in the first place.. that just doesn't seem like her.
I also was surprised that Charles would toss a loaded gun down in the barn to run in and tell the rest of the family the good news... that is dangerous to leave that there like that!
All in all though, a great episode, and one of my favorites!
