Season five of Little House on the Prairie opens as the financially strapped Ingalls family moves from Walnut Grove, MN, to Winoka in Dakota Territory. In addition to the possibility of better times ahead, the Ingalls will now be closer to their blind daughter, Mary (Melissa Sue Anderson), who is teaching at a school for the blind in Iowa. While temporarily taking residence in a hotel, Laura (Melissa Gilbert) befriend a starving orphan named Albert (Matthew Laborteaux). Twin babies Wendi and Brenda Turnbaugh make their first joint appearance as the Ingalls' infant daughter Grace in this, the first episode of a two-part story.
