Hetty, Felicity and a blind Gus return to Avonlea finding out about the Dale Cannery burning down, and a newborn in the Dale home. But Gus yet knows nothing about anyone named Stuart McRae, let alone that he is Felicity's fiancé. Conversely, no one in Avonlea has any idea that Gus is alive, albeit blind, before he arrives back in town. With the cannery, Olivia and Jasper's request for financing to rebuild has been turned down in light of the time to rebuild and the new modern cannery in Carmody always putting such a venture on uneconomical footing. Olivia and Jasper have to decide what to do, especially with all their old employees still waiting to start work. Hetty takes the news harder than anyone, she who sees the cannery as the lifeblood of the town, and without it the town's possible demise. With Felicity, Gus and Stuart, each also has some hard decisions to make. Stuart received Felicity's agreement to marry him in good faith and he still expects her to do so. Gus loves Felicity...

Last episode of the series. There would be a reunion two years later. An Avonlea Christmas. See more
I'm right here, Gus. I always will be. You're my whole life. You always have been. Ever since the first moment I saw you, there's never been anyone else. Remember? You came running into the classroom, barefoot, smoking that awful pipe. I fell in love with that boy. And when this is all over, whether you can see or not, I will marry you as I should have when you first proposed to me.
If that's a proposal, I accept.
