** "Day of Infamy" shows the family reacting to the attack on Pearl Harbor. When they get the word that Curt was killed in the attack, Mary Ellen is naturally rocked, more so by his last letter talking of how knowing her and the rest of the family made his life worthwhile.

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Several fans dislike Season 9: Mainly because of the different actor for John-Boy and the episodes that focus on the sons fighting in the war. Plus by this point four of the original cast members had left.

No other episode features any overt supernatural elements (though 'The Ghost Story' is ambiguous about a Ouija Board) and the episodes that focus on the sons fighting in the war.

* TearJerker: The season 6 episode "Grandma Comes Home" combines this with HarsherInHindsight: It's Grandma Walton's first episode back after Ellen Corby's stroke, but it also ends up being Grandpa's last because Will Geer [[TheCharacterDiedWithHim died during the show's hiatus]]. The season 7 premiere "The Empty Nest" deals not only with the loss of Grandpa, but also Flossie Brimmer (whose actress had also died).
