    "The Gold Watch" is a touching and heartwarming episode that really shows what human kindness is, and exemplifies the true morals of "The Waltons". Rose's Stanley Perkins arrives at the Walton's, much to Rose's delight, but brings with him a mystery that is slowly unraveled. The solving of the mystery is a heartwarming gesture by the Walton's and the many people of Walton's Mountain. Also, Jason and The Dew Drop Inn have fallen upon some hard times, and need something to perk up business. With the help and creativity of Toni, the entertainment they hire to help draw in customers, will cause a sight change of events, that will, as always, turn out to be right in the end, but maybe not in the way you would guess! A truly heartwarming, touching, loving episode that will bring you an hour of enjoyment.
