I loved Isaiah's speech at the end of this two-part episode.

I like this episode, although I have not seen it for quite a while. But I really hate it when later Mr. Edwards gives up Matthew.

I'm sure alot of this thing went on back then. There was alot of traveling shows and they used anything that would bring in a dime.
Human life and feelings are worth so much more than how they abused Matthew. Jonathan Hall Kovacs did a wonderful job as Matthew in this. The sign language was great.

Interesting fact about Wild Boy. Jonathon Hall Kovacs played the deaf boy.
He is actually deaf in real life.....

Yes. He is. I've read it in Patrick Loubatière's book. And Jonathan Hall Kovacs is also mute, as some deaf people uses to be.

Mr. Edward's does do a nice speech at the end, I wish there were more stories that were like this in quality toward the last years.
The actor's were still good, they just had less to work with.

I saw this book was for sale on Amazon through third party sellers for about 8.50. Was it a good book...was it just a coffee table type of book?

I will always believe that that scene was Victor French's finest hour on Little House. It was Emmy material.
You are right about season 9 and the actors having less to work with. However, most long running shows end up the same in the last season. They simply run out of good material.
My Bright Spots in Season 9 were:
The Wild Boy
Marvins Garden
Home Again
May I Have This Dance
Hello and Goodbye
The Love of Blanche was pretty cute.

I liked May I have this Dance very much and Wild Boy. Home Again (to see Albert and Charles together again) was also a good one, dramatic roles for both.
I know they were running out of material but really they could have thought of more things, I think they saw the writing on the wall and knew it was ending soon. That's why some show go off "early" so to speak. I'm glad they stayed on though.
Another "quirk" was not showing Mathew especially during episodes like "Love" where Mr. Edwards falls in love with Jane and you never see him again. Maybe he was busy but they could have said he was at school or something.

I loved this episode! I like how Laura, Almanzo and Mr. Edwards helped Matthew and took him in. Of course, Harriet and Nancy show their awful sides again, as they would rather have the $50 reward money and give the boy back to McQueen to be mistreated. I love when Nels destroys all of the elixir in front of Harriet... it gets even better when he ripped the $50 bank draft into pieces before her eyes! Laughing

But the ending was by far the best part! Mr. Edwards "speech" at the end in front of the judge was some of the best acting ever! I really like how he walks out and the judge follows him... then the judge tells him to take Matthew over to the authorities in 20 years and to pretend the judge was never there. Mr. Edwards runs back into the church and tells Matthew that he doesn't have to go, and that he can stay right there in Walnut Grove! Great ending! Thumbsup
