Episode Review

Everyone is in search for the special Wanderberry that has sprouted up recently when Strawberry adds that they only have until tomorrow to get it ready. Blueberry goes on to add that since Strawberry is the leader, she has to decide where they look, so Strawberry gives them random locations to check but all of the girls split up instead when they think they know where the special Berry is. Lemon thinks it'd be in the sunshine, while Orange thinks it'd be near water. Strawberry decides to just follow her heart and with her two little pets, goes in search of it.

Pupcake begins to sniff out something and soon locates the Wanderberry, but it's so high up that they do not know if it's reachable. Berrykin Bloom comes in search of the Wanderberry to find this and he looks over it, stating that this year it seems to be perfect, and it will be wonderful for the Berryfest. Custard begins to rub against Berrykin Bloom while he goes on saying it makes sense for Strawberry to easily find it, considering she's the Princess this year.

With some help they are able to get the fruit. Strawberry places it in the cart they brought before commenting on how heavy it is while Berrykin Bloom explains that since this one has been plucked, a new one has just sprouted somewhere else in the Land. As everyone pulls the heavy fruit, Strawberry comes to a momentary halt, thinking she heard whistling. But nobody else happened to hear it, so she chooses to ignore it and resumes pulling the big fruit.

As they go through a big flower patch down a long hill, the cart suddenly breaks. They need to hurry and with the aid of their hands alone, continue to pull the fruit. It will be dark soon and by the time the berry girls get home, they see how late it is. They all stop at the Gazebo, too worn out to continue on, so Strawberry decides they should just go rest now. But first they need to determine what to do with the fruit; while the girls say leave it there, Strawberry is too concerned. So they agree and drop it off at the Berry Works.

The next morning Strawberry leaves her house and hears whistling again, which makes her want to go look for it, since it seems sad. Before she can though, Orange and Plum show up claiming a disaster has struck and they rush her back to the Picnic sight to see the missing Wanderberry. They explain that a bunch of rabbits stole everything they had set up, but Strawberry mentions that the one that sprouted the other day may be grown enough to pluck, so they decide to go and look for it. However, Strawberry still wants to look for the bird she keeps hearing - but her friends claim to need her much more. She still needs to decorate, make food, set up, and find the replacement Wanderberry.

The berrykins come by and explain that they looked twice and found nothing. Plum states that the picnic is almost there and the girls begin to demand to know what to do, obviously unaware that Strawberry is only becoming more stressed by the minute until she eventually leaves, stating she needs to be alone for a few minutes. She gets more tense and the others have no clue it's because of them and wonder if she's okay.

Strawberry goes outside and begins to panic while having no clue what to do as she hears more whistling. Pupcake confirms this and Strawberry decides to put everything else behind and go look for the poor, sad bird after Berrykin Bloom shows up. He tells her he is sure she'll make the right decision when it comes to it and Strawberry leaves after she tells her friends she needs more time alone.

Coming to the strawberry patch, Strawberry follows the pathway with Custard and Pupcake behind her. She notices she's not hearing anymore sound and notices Custard has found the second Wanderberry. She notes it's smaller then the last one but it should still work anyway.

It's then Raspberry and Lemon come back and explain they had been looking for her and since they found her, they should head back now. Strawberry almost agrees but still wishes to see the bird she was hearing. She then comes across a bright pink bird with it's leg tangled in a vine. The girls pull it off and Raspberry comments that the bird may has hurt its wing. Strawberry investigates it a bit to realize it is very weak from hunger.

Right away, she considers handing over the Wanderberry to feed it. She hesitates, but only for a second before giving the bird the colorful fruit. Berrykin Bloom mentions that it is very nutritious, causing her to admit that she isn't sure if she made the right decision or not. But it felt right to her, so that is what matters.

The bird, now no longer weakened, flies up into the sky and begins to whistle again. A third Wanderberry suddenly appears, right outside of the Cafe. Everyone is delighted with this, realizing that the picnic can now go on.

Later, the group is all patiently waiting for dessert when Berrykin Bloom states first they should thank their host for such a wonderful party. Strawberry hears whistling once more as Plum asks if she's okay, wondering if maybe Strawberry ate too much when everyone sees the bird flying overhead while singing to them. With that, Strawberry pulls the orbs off of the Wanderberry and passes them out to everyone as a montage plays, ending the episode with the girls laying together as the sun sets. 

Lessons

As a leader, Strawberry learns that sometimes the best decisions mean helping out others and sacrificing one's own needs, as demonstrated when she handed over the Wanderberry to save the starving bird - despite knowing this would ruin the party. For her kindness and selflessness, she managed to get another Wanderberry in its place and she managed to help the bird.
