Season six of Little House on the Prairie begins with introduction of Dean Butler as Almanzo Wilder, future husband of series narrator Laura Ingalls (Melissa Gilbert). The brother of Walnut Grove's new schoolmarm, Eliza Jane Wilder (Lucy Lee Flippin), Almanzo immediately upon arrival becomes the romantic bone of contention between lovestruck teenagers Laura and Nellie Oleson (Alison Angrim) -- and for a while it looks as though nasty Nellie will emerge triumphant. But Laura has a delicious revenge on her longtime rival when Nellie invites Almanzo for a home-cooked chicken dinner. This is the first episode of a two-part story.
