My favorite part was when Joe and Candy and Hoss are all talking to the baby...the baby was so cute and the way the men interacted with it was adorable!

I love this episode. It's terrible the way Alicia was treated because she had been captured and forced to live with Indians. Her own husband at first refused her Indian son. All of the Cartwrights loved having her and her baby in their home. The baby sure didn't lack for attention! I love the ending when her husband carries the baby, finally excepting him and supporting his wife.

Yeah, it was terrible how the people treated her, starting with her own husband. But what Ben said in the saloon was right. That is one of those circumstances you can't judge because you don't know what you would have done in her shoes. And even though Alicia never comes out and says it, her actions show that she hated committing adultery. But in that case it isn't really adultery. It's rape pure and simple.
