Episode Guide


Afraid that the new baby will replace her in Pa's affection, Laura refuses to pray for her little brother when he is sick. When he dies, she is overwhelmed by guilt and runs away to the mountains where she meets Jonathan. Her new friend helps deal with her feelings and makes her a special wooden cross. While she is washing at the creek, the cross falls off and floats downstream helping Pa to determine where she is.



  • In previous interviews, Melissa Gilbert has said that the particular moment with Charles and Laura running to each other and hugging was exactly what Melissa had with Michael Landon off-screen. "That wasn't just Laura and Pa--that was Melissa and Mike," Gilbert has said.?
