S1 E5: Anne must deal with the inevitability of (unwanted) womanhood when she gets her first period. In recognition of this uncomfortable milestone, Matthew tries to soothe and bolster Anne by purchasing her a fashionable dress at an intimidating dress shop in Carmody. Here he finds himself completely outside his comfort zone, and face to face with his high school crush, a woman he hasn’t seen in decades. Marilla also tries to ease Anne’s angst, suggesting Anne host Diana for a “grown-up” tea, while she visits Rachel Lynde. But when the girls mistakenly drink currant wine instead of cordial, it’s more memorable than anyone could have imagined.
