Mrs. Olson spreads word that Albert had gotten Sylvia pregnant. Caroline knows this isn't true and confronts her nemesis over this misinformation. Mr. Webb decides that, because of the shame his daughter's ordeal brought him, they will move from Walnut Grove. Sylvia decides she'd be happier with Albert, and the two decide to get married. When Mr. Webb finds out Albert had visited her (despite a no-guests rule), he calls Sylvia a whore, and she runs away. Albert - who had gotten a job as at the blacksmith's shop - later helps search for Sylvia, but lets it slip as to her whereabouts to the blacksmith. It all leads to one final confrontation.

Sad Episode With Mystery in Spots
4 September 2019 | by audio_untilSee all my reviews

I may edit this review as I think of other things to say. I won't elaborate for now at length of all the specifics of this heart-wrenching episode.

However, I would like to point out something in the goings on in the search for poor Sylvia hiding out at the Old Atkins Place:

When Albert is in the process of trying to obtain money for he and Sylvia to travel away with, and Hartwig the rapist catches him in the process, after Albert tells him his plans, what does Hartwig offer to do?

He tells Albert he will feed and water Albert's horse and put another one with it for Sylvia to travel on. This actually of course lengthens the time Albert took (15 minutes prior to Charles and Hector's asking Mrs. Oleson of Albert's whereabouts) to get home to get the supplies and leave the note. While it gives the rapist both time (and perhaps the means - Albert's horse - since when Albert came back to the blacksmith place, the horse was nowhere around!) to get to the old Atkins' place to attempt a second attack on poor dear Sylvia.

Just my two cents and take on the episode since most have given more details on this sad story.

It is indeed a very heartbreaking tale, and when I first watched it when I was about 17, I was very very sorry that Sylvia had died which made me feel very intensely emotional since at the time there was a death in my family also.
