I just watched 'The Journal' (the one where Reckless dies and they find out John-Boy's plane was shot down) for the first time, and thought it was a very good episode. One thing bothered me about it though, it seemed like nobody cared about Reckless anymore, it was as if he was something the children had outgrown and so didn't care much about anymore. I mean, John and Olivia were both very worried about John-Boy and didn't know Reckless was ill, but all the children did and it seemed only Jeffrey, who would only have met Reckless not long before the episode, cared when she died!
I notice that as well and it seemed out of place, especially with a NURSE in the house. Didn't someone say she just wandered off and would be back. No, they don't do that. Some of the writing wasn't well researched before put on film.
