“TO LIVE WITH FEAR”



While Caroline stays with Mary, Charles sets out with Mr. Edwards to find work and send money back to the hospital. They eventually accept a mining job that involves building a tunnel for a railroad. Sick with fear over his daughter's illness, Charles disregards his own safety and faces serious danger.
















Hello folks!!!! Yes... it's been QUITE A WHILE... since I've done Episode Reviews... but here I am again grinsmiley
'To Live With Fear' is one of my favorite episodes from Season 3. I have watched it several times. I love how the community came together for the Ingalls here when the church made a special donation for Mary and Mr. Edwards showed what a great friend he was. Poor Caroline & Charles... what a hard time to go through seeing their Mary sick and struggling to pay for the operation. You also see Mary have a meltdown and I loved the way Caroline handled it, staying firm with her and telling her to buck up! That was some tough love. Love the group hug ending.

Great episode! 5 stars! Thumbsup Thumbsup Thumbsup

I can't even imagine how scared Mary or her parents were. Caroline shouldn't have yelled at Mary when Mary felt she wasn't getting any better and asked her to tell Pa she loved him if she's not there when he gets back. Mary was sick and freightened and didn't need to get yelled at.

It was frightening, private hospitals cost dear and I don't know if they had good public ones then.
I thought Charles was a little out of character when he was exploding dynamite during the funeral but he must have felt desperate. He was willing to sell everything and not have a place to live to help Mary, everything was just centered on that.

I thought it was realistic to show how they had to go in again to operate and how sick Mary was,it was strange after working in a hospital to see the lack of gloves and other sterile instruments but that was the way it was then.

It did seem harsh, but she didn't want Mary giving up because she felt awful and as a Mom it's scary to think you are losing your child. Sometimes the mind does help the body heal....most Ingall's are pretty spunky though. ; )

I just got done watching part 1. I will be watching part 2 in a little bit. The church members pulling together to donate money for Mary's operation brought tears to my eyes. bawling

I watched part 1 this afternoon. I cried when Charles arrived at church and Rev. Alden told him the church had collected money for Mary and when Laura was talking to mary at the Edwards place.

A very good episode showing the town pulling together (and Mr. Edwards) to help Charles pay for Mary's treatment. That tunnel work sure was dangerous.

It's strange, but I always felt that Charles didn't love Mary as much (or perhaps just a little less) than Laura and later Albert. I'm probably wrong and it's down to Mary being the elder child and growing up quite quickly and moving on as the series progressed.

I ALWAYS felt that Charles favored Laura. Maybe because she was more of a tomboy.

I think it was just that Laura was a tomboy, she would go fishing with him, want to do things that Mary might not like. Mary did more things with her Mother, but loving them, I think was equal and Albert was loved by both.
