Summary

Episode Review

Blueberry narrates that something mysterious is going on. As this occurs, Custard is laying down on one of the chairs outside of the cafe.

At the Library, Blueberry is reading a book aloud while pacing around. She keeps interrupting Bosley Bookworm, who is trying to sleep. She can't help but keep reading but before she knows it, it is already morning. She can't help it though, the story is too addictive.

The very next day, Berrykin Bloom heads over to see the Glimmer Berry when he comes across quite the shocking sight.

Meanwhile, Strawberry and the group are heading to the beach

Someone is missing...

to go swimming when she notices Blueberry isn't there. Orange mentions that she's been missing a lot recently, and Raspberry recalls that they were supposed to go on a picnic the day before, and she also canceled a hair appointment. Strawberry and Raspberry decide to pay their missing friend a trip to find the room full of boxes, books, and images of some girl. Bosley crawls out of the nearby box as Blueberry hands a big stack of books to Strawberry, who struggles to keep the books up while trying to find a place for them.

Kindly, Strawberry asks Blueberry what she's been up to lately while expressing concern. Blueberry seems not to acknowledge her however, voicing envy that she isn't nearly as smart as Patty. Raspberry tries to perk up Blueberry by saying she is really smart; even though her memory could use some work. Blueberry apologizes for not being around lately and promises to be there the next time they hang out, so her friends take off to let her get back to work.

Outside, Berrykin Bloom meets up with the girls and makes them come to the Berry Works with him. To their surprise they find a strange and bright sight before them, which he comments on as an odd plant infecting disease known as Plaidus Spotus; which colors the plants in odd, strange colors. He then runs off in hopes of finding a cure.

Later, the berry girls decide to go on a nature hike and they stop to go over the checklist before setting out. Upon realizing they do not have nature guides, Plum mentions that Blueberry was supposed to bring them and she isn't there either so the girls head over to see if she is home. A sign is on the door that says, "Gone Detecting".

Suddenly they see Blueberry in a brand new attire, and she explains that she wishes to be exactly like Patty Persimmon. Then she demonstrates her "keen" detective skills by announcing they are going on a nature hike and Plum asks sarcastically "How'd you guess?" before reminding Blueberry that she was supposed to bring nature guides with her. Blueberry apologizes for the inconvenience and mentions she had put them away to make room for her new Patty Persimmon books. She then turns down their invite, even after being somewhat tempted by blueberry muffins, because Patty doesn't like them.

After Blueberry walks away, Plum comments regarding her strange behavior and they try to think of ways to remind Blueberry of her true self. Strawberry happens to spot Berrykin Bloom and asks him about an update regarding the disease- but as it turns out, it has begun to spread. This gives the girls an idea to move the plants nearby to keep them from getting the illness, and some hours later the sun has begun to set by the time they finish. Due to their hard work, Strawberry suggests they just have fun the following day and everyone heads off to bed. But as she is heading home she bumps into Blueberry; who is investigating a closed flower. She thinks it might just be sad but Strawberry reveals it's a flower that closes during the night, something Blueberry takes credit for. Strawberry then gets an idea and tells Blueberry a clue to find the disease-ridden plants, assuring her she could probably find the cure by searching her old books, but Blueberry refuses because Patty wouldn't do that. She insists that someone is probably just painting on the flowers, then decides to camp out all night to find the guilty party.

The next day, Raspberry and Strawberry meet up to see even more plants are gaining the disease. They find Blueberry sleeping underneath a big leaf, who wakes up to find them there and believes they are the guilty party. Strawberry goes on to point out it is now morning and that Blueberry fell asleep.

The berry girls get together again and confess their worries to Blueberry and how different she's been as of late. Strawberry begins to brainstorm further and leaves to search for Blueberry, claiming she has a mystery that needs solved. Because Patty can juggle at least ten cases at once, Blueberry agrees to do it and Strawberry describes someone who has gone missing: They like blue, and on Wednesdays they come to the Cafe for book club.

Later, Blueberry calls everyone to Strawberry's Cafe to inform them that she believes she found the missing person. She asks further questions to find out the girl likes blueberry muffins and loves to read, and Blueberry manages to figure out it's a girl they're looking for, but after a moment, she realizes that Strawberry tricked her. The girl that was missing had been herself. With that Strawberry explains why she had to resort to this, but she is unable to talk long when an urgent cry sends

Concocting a cure for the plants

them back to the plants to find the disease is spreading further. The Glimmer Berries are unable to be harvested, meaning they can't power Berry Bitty City either. Once again, Strawberry mentions that Blueberry may have something they can use in one of her old books and she quickly gets to work. She looks in many old books and puts her Patty Persimmon books elsewhere before finding what she was trying to find. After searching for a cure she mixes some items together and tests out her new creation to see if it will fix the plants.

As it works, the girls cheer and thank Blueberry for the help. They are delighted to have their blue friend back to normal.

Lessons

Blueberry learns the difference between admiring someone and obsessing over them. Nobody told her she can't idolize Patty Persimmon, she just has to learn to do it in a healthy way. During her obsession she lost her true self and was blowing off everyone else to emulate her heroine, and in the process tore down her own worth. After she snapped out of it, she was able to get back to being herself and was able to focus on helping to heal the plants before their disease spread further.

Trivia

  • This is the first time a Berry Girl appears with her hair in pigtails.
  • This is also the first episode when a girl is shown to prefer her namesake food item. In this case, it was Blueberry, who is said to love Blueberry Muffins.
  • Patty Persimmon is mentioned for the first time on the show.
  • The title of the book Blueberry is reading at the opening scene is "The case of the missing friend", which relates to her own situation in this episode.
  • Despite her attempts, Blueberry showed very poor detective skills:
    • She tried to solve a "mystery" that was a perfectly normal phenomenon - why flowers close up. Her theories were more or less guesses that were given little to no thought.
    • When asked to solve the mysterious thing that happened to the plants, her conclusions were also just guessed, saying that someone was bored or painted them. She wasn't shown investigating properly.

Goofs

  • When the girls first see Blueberry's new look Lemon holds a butterfly net, but a moment later she appears to be holding a bag of food.
  • At the end of the episode, Blueberry implied she was going to get rid of her Patty books. But later in the series she still has them.
