  • Notes

    • In this episode, Mary and Adam attend the big circus at the end. Melissa Sue Anderson (Mary) has discussed in interviews how realistically, this was not the kind of event that a real blind person would be involved in, and for the show, it was basically just an effort to give Mary some quick screen time and show the audience that she hadn't fallen off the face of the Earth. This is one of the reasons that Anderson left the show shortly after this, because there really wasn't much more to do with her after her character went blind, got married, and moved on.
