  • Good to see everyone back in Walnut Grove again but sad about Jack as he was definitely part of the furniture.

    The Ingalls family are once again settled on their farm in Walnut Grove after their prospecting at the end of last season. Seems as though the Edwards' have gone on to California but it's great to see the rest of the townsfolk once more - even Mrs. Oleson!

    In this episode, Laura is becoming increasingly annoyed with her old dog, Jack. He is following her constantly, being a nuisance, barking and annoying her in general but she is heartbroken when poor old Jack is found dead in the barn and her guilt refuses to let her warm to the black and white stray named Bandit that Charles brings home for her. Finally, however, she takes the dog into her heart.

    This is the stuff that this show is made of and it's a wonderful, heart warming episode to watch.
