It was the one where Elizabeth kept seeing wierd things happen, like rocks and chairs floating around, and the radio getting all static-y when she came near it.
I thought they would show that it was all in her imagination, and they did hint at that during the episode, until I saw the end where everyone saw the stuff happening, and they seemed to explain it more as a manifestation of Elizabeth's "feelings" during puberty. It was like a scene from Poltergeist.

It was the first time since I started watching The Waltons, that I saw a really unrealistic episode. My respect for that show went down a couple notches when I saw that one.

I like this episode quite a bit. I like how The Walton's had some spooky episodes. Like with the one with the Ouija board.

Earl Hamner Jr. had written for The Twilight Zone, so an episode like that I guess shouldn't be too surprising...!

I have a preference for the early years of The Waltons, as the production values on Season 1 in particular are just outstanding. But the later years have their advantages, like seeing Mary McDonough in full bloom as Erin!
