Lisa Gerittison did a marvelous job as young Cassie. It was cute to see Jamie trying to "spark" a girl.

Lisa was cute. I liked when Jamie was at Ben's desk talking about showing her around and Ben says he doesn't have time and asks Joe if he could do it. Jamie says 'no! I could do it!' Ben and Joe both laugh.

Lisa and Mitch were two child/teen stars that both left show business after promising starts.

However, Lisa seems to be not as visible nowadays with IMDB listing her as working in computers in the 1990s.

Shame, as they both had talent and on screen persona.

At the end of the horse race, the scene where "Cassie" flies off the horse was done by the "stunt runt", Rick Drown. He told us at the 2014 convention that he was actually injured during that scene. Rick usually did the "Jamie" stunts.

Lisa Gerritsen seemed to be a pretty decent rider herself, but you can tell that most of the race was (appropriately) done by stunt riders.

This episode also aired on UK TV today, and Lisa Gerritson certainly acted her part well. So did Prince, he was gorgeous! Mitch was still calling Ben, 'Mr Cartwright', and when talking to Cassie he admitted calling Ben Pa at times, and worried about what his own Pa would think about him doing that...that was quite a poignant little moment considering how Cassie was fighting her own feelings towards her father.
