I can see why this isn’t a popular episode from a review standpoint. Compared to “The Spitfire,” Trudy was really a sweet girl. It’s unfortunate she had the pressure of high society and staying with Paul, while caring for her, was scared she was becoming too good for him. This may have been par for the course at the time; that women couldn’t be higher than men. At least Mr. Harker was decent. Cousin Stephanie was a snob, and no doubt the Cartwrights weren’t impressed. Still there could have been a compromise somewhere. Instead of simply settling for the life she was had because it was what she knew, I would hope Trudy will eventually receive her inheritance and be able to own land and live in a nice house.

I like Trudy and I liked the way Joe, with help from his family trained her for society. I couldn't stand Stephanie but there's usually one in every family! :shrug
