    Summary

    In brutal horseplay, the two sons of a neighboring rancher beat and rape Little Joe. Living with the hellish aftermath, Joe was determined not to tell the family, causing a huge fight at home. So Joe decides it’s time to leave the Ponderosa.

    Final – Chapter 5: Gingerly he tested his grip: the fingers were too weak, too stiff. He’d just have to pray real hard that his life wouldn’t depend on his fast draw for the next few days. That had been a stupid thing to do – smashing his fists on Adam’s thick skull. He’d probably hurt his hands more than Adam’s face. Well, at least he’d put a dent in Adam’s love-life. Big brother wouldn’t be kissing anybody for awhile at least.

    Summary

    In the original "Bonanza" episode, "The Stillness Within", Joe is blinded in an explosion. Hurt and angry, he refuses any attempt to get him to resume a normal life, particularly rebelling against the arrival of a teacher from the Braille Institute for the Blind. Over several weeks, Joe comes to trust Miss Dobbs, then to trust himself again. In the end, Miss Dobbs is so impressed by his progress that she suggests he return to San Francisco with her to train as a teacher. The very next morning, Joe wakes up with his sight fully and painlessly restored. Overjoyed, he runs to tell Miss Dobbs, only then to realize that she is blind.

    T.S.W. was a beautiful episode, but I always felt that the ending was too easy. By regaining his sight just in time to avoid making a decision about the teacher's proposal, Joe also avoided the character growth that would have come from having to face the tough decisions about how he would handle the changes to his life. Therefore, I thought I’d take a stab at an alternate ending, one not constrained by the realities of television production.

    This story picks up the morning after Miss Dobbs’ proposal, with Joe still blind.
