Reviews for Words That Hurt
Guest chapter 1 . 9/21/2016
"To Catch A Wild horse", was one of those pivotal episodes in the budding bonding between Murdoch and Johnny. Unfortunately, it was also one of those orphaned episodes, that left the audience, out in the cold, as to WHN.
This, "Words That Hurt", is a heartfelt endeavor to rectify that woeful oversight. So, much so, one wishes it could have been televised as Part 2.
The emotional turmoil, for both Murdoch and Johnny, is heart wrenching presented. This is the conversation, they should have had. It also plays out beautifully believe able and true in the mind's eye.
Especially loved:
"You belong here and the only choice you need to make from now on is if you chase that wild horse or continue with you chore"...Johnny's reaction, in the next two paragraphs, was the best ever.
Thank you,

Perfect. I would hope this is exactly the conversation Johnny and Murdoch would have at the end of this episode.

You are amazing at episode tags! Loved all the emotional turmoil you put into words between those two. And such a clever way to put the title of the episode into the story. Thanks so much!

Glad to see the harsh words in this episode explained and Murdoch making sure Johnny knows why he said them and that he wants Johnny to stay! Thanks hon.

So well done. Always thought the words Murdoch spoke should have been addressed in the show itself, and the ending just a bit too easily wrapped up.

I absolutely love this! You achieved just the right balance - showing Johnny's and Murdoch's thoughts and then bringing father and son together without cloying sentimentality. Love the little touch of humour too.
