The Nemesis I &
II (77, 78)
"The Nemesis" was one of my favorite
Adventures in Odyssey episodes for a while, at least until "Darkness Before
Dawn" came out. I really have enjoyed the sinister plot that the AIO writers designed
for these episodes.
I remember hating Richard Maxwell's guts for burning
down Tom Riley's farm. But I realized that it's all part of the story. Now that I look
back on this episode, I like Richard's decisions because it made a whole new storyline for
AIO, being that he needs to apologize for what he's done to Tom, and to those who were
affected by Richard.
There's one thing that I don't understand. Why did
Lucy go along with Richard's manipulation? To me back then, it seemed as if Lucy knew
better. She's one of the most mature children characters that existed! I still don't
understand why she would give in because she knew full and well that getting that password
would be bad for certain workers at Whit's End. Just a thought. And I really also doubt
that Lucy would make those phone calls to Mrs. Kendall and write a letter to Whit. It
doesn't make sense. Lucy knows that she would be lying too!
Besides the things I wonder about, this episode is a real
cliffhanger and is worth hearing over and over!
