Wander Over Yonder - The Flower

Even the most optimistic person in the galaxy loses hope sometimes. In final episode before the Season Two finale, it's Sylvia's (April Winchell) job to instill some hope in Wander (Jack McBrayer) by attempting to save a single flower in a broken and destroyed galaxy. However, when every attempt to save the plant (including translating it to a variety of worlds) all which turn out to be disastrous, especially once Dominator (Noël Wells) decides to crush the pair and destroy the flower, it's all she can do to keep her best friend from breaking down in tears. Like most of the show's best episodes, there's a great lesson in "The Flower" behind the amusing antics of our heroes. Despair doesn't mean the absence of hope, and life (even in the cruelest of conditions) usually finds a way.
