This episode doesn't have a very exciting plot (other than Joe stopping the runaway horses), but it's one of my favorite Joe romances...he's absolutely adorable, all the way through. I love how he keeps introducing himself to Wendy over and over, and I love the way Hoss keeps teasing him about her. I do think Wendy is a bit young for him, but I could imagine her growing up a bit over the next few years and then meeting him again. (Fanfic opportunity?) Also, she doesn't seem to be affected by the curse of the blue dress!

I have to agree with you, CG@H, on the plot not being very exciting. Why, when I watched the episode, I even thought to myself, "My goodness this is boring!!" But I didn't think Wendy was a good love interest for Joe, as I did think she was too young. She almost looked like she'd fit better as a younger sister than a love interest. Just my opinion, though.

I agree.......and she emotionally like a child also. She lived in this dreamworld. Don't think she would have made a suitable mate for Joe in many ways.

Joe was great in this but Wendy was just too immature. She did wear blue several times throughout the episode so no wonder she left, never to be seen again. :bluedress :horsebuggy
