This week, the entire Ingalls family is concerned about Mary. Her grades are suddenly failing, and Pa is the only one smart enough to figure out that she needs glasses. That entire mystery takes most of the episode to solve. After her eyes are opened to a whole new world via glasses, she is immediately terrorized by the Oleson kids who tell her she will never get married now that glasses have turned her into a hideous monster. Mary decides she'd rather fail at school than be a spinster so she hides her glasses. Thankfully, a dopey version of Ryan Gosling swings by to make out with Miss Beadle (who also wears glasses) proving to Mary that maybe the Oleson kids are just mean and have no idea what they are talking about.
Amy, Julie, and Marissa delve into subjects like body image, what personal "flaws" plagued us when we were teenagers, and how we learned we finally needed glasses. We also talk about how depressing Planet Earth can be and how washing your face with oil can possibly solve acne issues.
