A sad catatonic state
24 May 2016 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Eileen Baral became the second little girl that the Cartwrights found wandering after a tragedy. There's A Christmas episode at the beginning of the run of the show where they find blind little Diane Mountford in the Sierras. But Baral is found by Hoss and and it's after a stagecoach holdup where everyone including here parents are killed except here.

She's in a sad catatonic state, but Dan Blocker brings her to the Ponderosa main house to stay temporarily. But as Lorne Greene points out the Ponderosa man cave is no place for a little girl. Still she does bond with Blocker, the big guy certainly did have a way with kids throughout the run of the series.

There's skulduggery afoot however engineered by her uncle Gerald Mohr in from San Francisco to claim her. What it is I won't reveal, but it was worth a lot of bloodshed in Mohr's eyes.

One of Dan Blocker's best episodes from the series.
