PlatoofthePonderosa wrote:Adam's back injury was always suspicious to me. Was it some kind of partial paralysis? Why did he seem to be in no pain whatsoever? How much could a doctor in the 1860s actually diagnose without x-rays? "Muscle and nerve damage" seems veeery vague to me and like some writer didn't want to take the time to research.
It's like all those "TV injuries"; people are blind but one day can see, they get amnesia but suddenly regain their memory, they get shot in the shoulder but have no long term problems moving their arm - it's all for the story. Even Adam getting shot in the gut ("The Honor of Cochise") is no big deal after a doctor gets to him. I just sigh, roll my eyes, back, and go with it. :laughing

Adam had convenient plotitis—his “injury” had to make Laura reconsider her feelings for Will and make Adam realize he really didn’t want to marry her.

I wonder what happened to the ring Adam bought for her. Did she tell Will she was okay with wearing Adam’s ring to save money when/if she and Will married? Did she give it back to Adam? Did she toss it in the privy?

"Plotitis"! :rotfl

I would hope Laura gave the ring back to Adam. But, considering all the bad decisions Laura's already made, I wouldn't count on it!
