Little House on the Prairie Television Series
Season Five (1978-1979)


February 19, 1979

The town faces growing problems with the poor wheat prices. The town bigot goes to the Garvey home after Jonathan embarrasses him, but Andy is there alone. He gets mad and hits Andy, causing him to lose consciousness. The bigot then gets scared and runs away. When Andy comes to, he grabs a lantern and saddles up his horse to find his father. He finds Jonathan and they return to the house to find the barn burning. Their family, and the whole town, believe the bigot set the fire and a trail is held, even though he pleads his innocence. But Andy finds a broken lantern in the remains of the burnt barn and begins to wonder if he accidentily set the fire that night. In the end he tells the judge that the fire might have been his own fault, and the bigot is found innocent.
