“Plauge”



Several people in Walnut Grove get very sick. A quarantine is set up in the church while the source of the illness is being sought.















Not really a favorite episode but it’s okay. I felt bad for Caroline, it must have been hard for her having her husband away, wondering if at any time he could get sick. I love the interaction between the two of them. Also, as you know Michael’s real daughter, Leslie, appears in this episode (see pic above). I heard that they had to shoot that scene several times because Michael was getting too emotional with his daughter.
The scene towards the end when they find all those bags w/ the rats is crazy… that looked so scary! It sure was a scary time in Walnut Grove.

:agree: I cringe everytime that part of the episode comes on - it is really scary. Not one my fave episodes. I thought the scene between ML and LL was great - and it must have been really hard for him to do that part talking to his real daughter. But I thought it was cool that she had a part in the episode - I think I remember seeing on the ML: Memories With Laughter & Love tribute where she said how proud she was to go home w/ him that day after shooting that scene - something to that effect.

Yeah, that's such a gross scene! affraid

I've heard that Michael was extremly close to his children, and that the children on set were just like his own.
:CoolSign:
I hated seeing Melissa Gilbert break down during a TV interview after he died. She said it was like losing a father. Blue

I always thought it was cool that his children were able to have parts on the show, no matter how small. It showed me that ML didn't want to spend too much time away from his kids by working. Bring them to work with you!

Take care.

I have to admit I like this one; mainly because it shows what people in that time period really had to deal with. I don't believe people wanted to see that on a regular basis, but the ones that do display it well are some of my favorites.

I really like this episode, except I think it may not be medically factual. I'm not an expert on typhus, but I think that the kind carried by rat fleas is not that fatal and that it is another kind of typhus that is the more fatal one. In any case, it makes a good story...I love how the doctor, the Reverend, and Charles all have to work so hard together.

The man who plays Eric Boulton (Matt Clark) is an excellent actor, in my opinion. That scene where he is holding his dead son (who actually looks pale and dead, by the way) out by the tree is so sad.

And I especially love seeing the friendship between Mr. Edwards and Charles. I love seeing male friendships portrayed well on television. It is so touching when Charles says something like "when are you going to understand you are family?" after Mr. Edwards initially declined coming home with Charles, since homecomings are for family.

Right, Amyk, more than right. The episode is NOT medically correct. Besides, rats fleas you can find in corn flour would be destroyed by fire oven when people would cook their corn bread...Maybe the fleas infected them BEFORE they could put the bread into the oven. However, my own great grandma had typhus when she was younf and lived in a rural county and was not so desperately ill as the people the the shows potrayed. Huh?

I agree about Matt Clarck. He also did a greay job in that episode about Antrax in Walnut Gorve ("Mortal Mission")...By the way, antrax symptoms are not like the ones showed in this epie.... greenS HeeHee

I don't even really remember the anthrax episode! I guess I have not seen that one a lot, although I probably have seen it at some point. I always kind of like the episodes where the town has to face a major epidemic illness or major catastrophe of some kind. I think because I like the way they all work together to overcome and, like Revd. Alden said in this plague episode, they are stronger for it (he said something to that effect after the plague).

I like these kinds of episodes too. The pioneers faced many hardships in the settling of the West, and it's good that the writers of LHOP didn't forget that.
