My Two Cents
This was a very exciting episode. I especially liked the fact that it was set in the ghost town of the west. With all that said there was something that was a little far fetch especially when it came to Bronco. Either these parents was tired of him or the trust level was way up. Maybe its just me and the world I live in but, I wouldn’t feel comfortable in allowing my child at that age to go with two total strangers unless I was with them. The parents really took a leap of faith with Kate and George taking over guardian role. Bronco seems to be very intelligent for his age and mature. I also liked the scene in which they were in the dirt for most of it and somehow the next scene they are clean. I am not going there with the hygiene issues and you know there was no…..okay I will stop. But, then again the shipper side of me liked that. All in All it was a great season finale.
Bronco: It’s so dark I can barely see my face.
George: Maybe it’s not your face !
We are now at the half way mark of the series and sadly we are now in Kate’s final season. But, that is on the back burner. In this next episode we battle big hair and a earthquake. When Kate and George goes up against a cunning psychic who can predict the weather. Also, It has a ender that will change Kate and George lives forever.
