A very big baby
12 May 2012 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

During the run of Bonanza we were given the flashback stories of all three of Lorne Greene's wives and the mothers of his sons. But only Dan Blocker's mother was given a two part episode. In the 1962 season we saw Lorne Greene meet and marry Inga Swenson with Johnny Stephens as young Adam Cartwright in tow. Now we see Ben Cartwright already married with Inger Borgstrum Cartwright with child expected on the journey west by wagon train.

On the trip is a disgruntled and bitter fellow in Gene Evans who is jealous of Lorne Greene with wife, child, and child expecting and hopes for the future. When some Indians steal horses belonging to Evans he shoots one of them and brings about some events that culminate in tragedy.

When a really large baby is born which what you would expect young Adam says that 'Hoss' would be a good name as in Swedish it is a nickname for a big friendly man. Inga would like to name him Eric after her father and Ben says we'll do both and see which one takes.

All TV fans know that one.
