S02.E22: Going Home

Recommended Posts


Overwhelmed by the senseless destruction left in the wake of a devastating tornado, a bone-weary Charles Ingalls convinces himself to give up trying to make a life for his family on an unforgiving prairie, puts the farm up for sale, and prepares to move back to the big woods where he was born.

The whole Simms plot line was way too coincidental, showing up right after the tornado wanting to buy the place. It made me think he was actually a heavenly surrogate a la Jonathan in "The Lord is My Shepherd." But nope, he's just a weirdo who forgot for a second that he's too old to work a farm and who has enough money to throw away on fixing someone else's damaged property. Wait, if he has that much money to waste after a lifetime of farming, Pa should beg him to come back and provide some badly needed farmer lessons.

Side note: "YOU lost a crop to a tornado? No way! I once lost a crop to a tornado!" No shit, farmboys, it's the prairie. Tornados are not exactly once-in-a-lifetime occurrences.
