I cried
12 September 2013 | by sunshinebear213See all my reviews

This was the best episode of the first season. Now that Netflix has both seasons available, I ran through a marathon. Haven't watched the show since it was new, when I was a young teen. I loved all three of these actors. The ending ripped my heart out but not out of sadness. Such love. Such compassion. Such unbelievable devotion from the grandson. They are all so incredibly talented - or were - as both Ian Wolfe and the lovely Herta Ware are not with us anymore. Ian Wolfe actually passed less than ten years after this episode. I cried and kept crying for about five minutes. I love this episode so much. So much.
