I liked it for the friendly bound shown between Laura and Isaiah. I think that LHOTP is not LHOTP without Mr. Edwards and the special friendship between him and Laura. Thumbsup

I just saw this episode.....not a favorite of mine. Good ending


I am beginning to learn that it is the sweet, simple things of life which are the real ones after all.

I think it was wonderful how their friendship stayed until the end. I wish the writers were kinder to Mr. Edwards, but that's not what they wanted, he suffered a lot.

I like how in the episode where he marries Grace, Caroline says (paraphrasing) The children are fine, Mr. Edwards has taught them all how to spit further than anyone in Walnut Grove."

Coming from her thoughts on the first episode to that was worth a smile. : )

I enjoyed this episode... I thought it was out of character to make Isaiah wanting to kill himself, but I guess they did that to make the story work.... I love how Charles pretends to be badly wounded by a gun shot in order to make Isaiah feel useful.. And then how Isaiah stops feeling sorry for himself and tells everyone he wants to go back home. Very nice ending!

I forgot about that part, wanting to kill himself, hadn't seen it in a while. Michael had that happen a few times, seemed like that dark feeling came up with his father, (that was awful, wanting to burn?) the old guy at the gold mine who lost his wife and they stole his gold where he buried it with her. There might have been more but I found it upsetting once with my kids with Charles dad, they were like, "He wants to burn himself alive?


I loved Mr Edwards though, a good character and dramatic actor. His gruffness coupled with his sensitivity was touching.

I liked the ending to this episode. The part where Isaiah wanted to kill himself was rather disturbing. I can totally understand why Laura (and Charles) got so upset. I really like the way Charles got Isaiah to go get help after he "got shot." That was pretty quick thinking for Charles to come up with the plan to act like he was wounded.

That ending was the best part, an uplifting triumphant success to an otherwise too depressing and not so enjoyable episode.

That's right... Charles always seems to be able to come up with a well thought out plan like that at the last minute and make it work. I loved when he was right behind Isaiah and then Isaiah says that he almost could have died trying to get help for Charles... Then Charles replied that he thought that the idea of dying was Isaiah's to start with. It was nice to see Isaiah back home and back to normal.

Fast forward to "He Was Only Twelve, Part One" and it was Albert who comes up with the last-minute clever plan. I loved that part.

I haven't seen that episode yet, but it sounds like it is a good one!
