When the three Galendar brothers arrive in town, Mr.Hansen, Charles, Nels and others go out of their way to make them welcome, extending credit for goods and assisting in a variety of ways. The three repay the generosity of the townsfolk by bulling the children, lying and trying to take liberties with Caroline.
Reverend Alden counsels a 'turn the other cheek' approach which drove me absolutely insane and sent out the wrong message to viewers, particularly young ones and I wasn't at all impressed by that as it seemed that he was condoning their appalling behaviour.
When he finally saw sense, quite a bit of damage had been done and it was a case of too little, too late, so I wasn't impressed with the way this one was handled at all. Also, I remember how difficult Charles found it to settle his family in the town; they were not extended any credit or shown any special favours so this irked me a little as well.
Nor my favourite episode as I didn't like the lack of moral message being sent.
