Did You Know?

Goofs

Annie knows how to paint landscapes accurately because she went blind only as a toddler. But the portrait she paints of herself and her birth mother at the end is impossible: she has no idea what her birth mother looked like many years later, and no idea what she herself grew up to look like.

Saw a review on a previous episode that complained about this season showing other characters and stories outside the Ingalls. Well I understand that, and for some shows I don't like it that much either when it gets away from the original people. However, in this series it expanded and grew and portrayed the Ingall's family and regular characters all spread out a bit and just like normal, bringing in others for different plots.

Portrait Of Love was amazing and heartfelt. Granted there was less of the main original people in some episodes, but since so much of the show wasn't based from any real history, they just rolled with it.
