Edited to add that no many how many times I see it, Harv Miller ENRAGES me. He's so dumb and clueless. You can see the exact moment when Eliza Jane's heart shreds into pieces. I was watching that episode with my 20 something daughter yesterday and she was sweet when she said, "Eliza is pretty, they make her dowdy, it wasn't that strange that Harv wouldn't like her" I agree, that was one of the saddest shows, her diary, the voice-overs, the heartbreak, even more than the fires and deaths he had in before because so many could relate. He was clueless but they make most men like that. He wasn't as dull as they made Garvey many times. I wish they showed she did meet a nice man, maybe an accountant or banker, and got married. I don't know what her story was in the books. There wasn't a reason why she was a spinster but Harriot found Nels ; ) I started not to like the show as much now because he didn't take more ideas from the books but redid things he did before. Laura hates Dr Baker but he decided he wasn't good many shows before when someone died, Eliza Jane couldn't handle the "boys" but Miss Beadle also couldn't and the SAME conclusion was decided, the kids would help (did Laura forget??) One of the funniest was when Nellie married the pig farmers son and they chased after them to the hotel they were staying in. Harriot yells to Nels "Make her a widow!" lol I laugh out loud every time. 2 Link to comment
