This week we meet Julia Sanderson, widowed mother of three, who learns she hasn’t much time left in life. With admirable courage and a smoky-smooth voice, she makes preparations for her children with Charles Ingalls help. Mary and Laura also rescue three puppies that look suspiciously like Jack.
In the first several minutes of this episode, we learn the Jeff Scale origin story as well as meet who is arguably one of the worst residents of Walnut Grove. Amy and Marissa discuss whom they would leave their children with in the event of their death. (Hint: Julie might end up with a lot of children.) We also learn a lot about the early developments of cancer treatment and discuss how rainy funeral scenes are extremely cliché.
(Trigger Warning: This episode deals with losing a parent to a terminal illness.)
Special Thanks to our nurse researcher Courtney Schuman for answering our questions.
