In this episode, she takes a brief sabbatical from teaching and decides to write pulp romance novels, something that takes the town by storm and surprises many people. In her place, Clive Pettibone takes on the difficult job of teaching the children, but it becomes quickly apparent that his teaching methods are drastically different from Hetty's. Shortly after taking her place, he is called out by the school board for using militant and unusual practices in his teaching of the school. Havoc quickly ensues!
This season also introduces some conflict between Gus Pike and Felicity as he decides he wishes to court her. However, he is quickly stopped by Arthur Pettibone, who won't give his approval or consent for them to court. After this, Gus is willing to do whatever it takes for him and Felicity to be together, even if Arthur refuses to let them court. Changes also come to the town of Avonlea itself as an industrialist comes into town, determined to turn this quaint little village into a modern town. With his desire to turn Avonlea into the city of the future, will the townsfolk allow him, or will they be able to stop him?
