Synopsis

When Anne discovers an old friend who has been living a double life, she becomes fixated on helping him be his true self.

Plot

Anne is showing Sprig her favorite movie From Point to Poppin' when a high hill causes the reigns on Bessie to snap; causing her to chase after a flock of sheep-flies. The group realize that they need to stop by the next town to buy some reigns, but Hop Pop points out that the only town nearby is Ribbitvale, a high class, rich town. With no other options they head over there and are taken in by the glitzy sights. As they look around, they spot what appears to be One-Eyed Wally. Upon realizing that it is him, Wally, or Walliam as he is referred to, refuses to acknowledge them and then attempts to claim that they are his "servants" from Wartwood. His father, Wigbert Ribbiton, invites them to their mansion so that they can have their belongings tended to.

Anne confronts Wally about his double life and he reveals that he plays a loon because it makes him feel comfortable. He cannot leave his old life because he cares for his ladybug Fiddleleaf and cannot bare to leave her. Elsewhere, the Plantars look around the mansion and find some strange things happening. As everyone has sat down to dinner, Anne reveals a video on her phone of Wally's shenanigans in Wartwood; hoping that Wigbert would be accepting. Instead, he is offended and demands that Wally permanently stay in Ribbitvale. In response, Wally challenges his father to a game of Beast Polo.

As the game begins, Wigbert denies Wally's steed Fiddleleaf, forcing him to use Anne who wants to make up for her blunder. The game ends up being evenly matched as both sides make equal points. Just as it seems that Wigbert is going to win, Anne and Wally make a come back and win the game. Wally tells Wigbert that he does not want to leave his old life behind and just wants more freedom. As Wally pulls out his accordion, Wigbert reveals that he used to play the jug and everyone celebrates, until a giant chicken comes out and scares them.

  • The title is a reference to the Jane Austen novel Sense and Sensibility.
  • Anne's movie, From Point to Poppin', is most likely a reference to films such as Billy Elliot.
