Plot

Eye'll Be Watching You

The Trolls are gearing up their bug rides for the Flyer Riding event led by Queen Poppy. However, at the last second, Branch tries to dissuade the race but to no avail as the Trolls ignore his pleas. Branch advises Poppy that Flyer Riding is one of numerous major hazards in Branch's list but Poppy tries to persuade him that he doesn't need to be so concerned about so much safety and demonstrates it to Branch by joining the Flyer Riding event herself. However, Poppy's bug collides with Suki's resulting in Poppy to get dislodged and plummets to the ground. Luckily, the Troll doctor finds that Poppy is still alive after the fall but suffers a minor sprain, and she gets escorted back to her home. Branch is devastated from the accident, and decides to take up measures to prevent another disaster like that from happening again. He breaks open a distant secluded cave containing hundreds of unknown plants where Branch collects several of its seeds.

Poppy's rest at her pod is suddenly interrupted by Branch, eager to show her the seeds that would prevent another flying accident. When Branch drops the seed, it sprouts a strange plant that has one giant eyeball, called an Eyestock, an active safety monitoring plant that detects and prevents the smallest of potential dangers from happening. Branch strongly suggests that it'd be used all around the village, though Poppy is amazed by the plant's capabilities she still is reluctant to allow it in the village and asks Branch to give her time to make the decision. As Branch leaves, he becomes concerned as dozens of Trolls fly wildly all around the village. Committed in preventing another accident, Branch decides to against Poppy's wishes and plants a single eyestock. It immediately responds and restraints all the trolls' bugs, despite protests from the Trolls.

As Branch traverses around the village, he continues to plant eyestocks near vicinities where danger is most likely. When Guy Diamond and Biggie are prevented from "fencing" because of an eyestock, they decide that they just go for a quick swim at a nearby lagoon even though Guy just ate. The eyestock overhears this and tries to prevent them from venturing further but is limited to its spot. The eyestock reacts by spreading more eyestocks on its own. They quickly multiply into hundreds and surround Guy and Biggie. Meanwhile, Branch prepares to head back to Poppy to inform him of his transformation of the village, but he hears Poppy loudly screaming. He finds her being tied down in bed by the eyestock he left at the pod earlier, so he knocks the plant's pot over. Poppy finds that the eyestocks are too insane to be planted in the village. But Poppy notices that Branch appears to be hiding something from her. She eventually realizes that Branch planted the eyestocks without her approval, Branch tries to reason with her, but Poppy becomes disappointed by his actions and demands that he leave her pod. An eyestock witnesses the entire exchange, and angrily pinpoints Poppy as a threat to their beloved troll, Branch.

A while later, Branch drops down and enter Troll village but discover the whole place is overrun by eyestocks. Branch is horrified that the plants have practically suppressed the livelihood of all the trolls, as the tiniest action could be viewed as a hazard. The eyestocks express their gratitude to Branch and that they have doen his wish of safety, but Branch never wanted them to overdo it and realizes that Poppy was right about the plants. The eyestocks inform him that Poppy is about to be "no longer a danger" to him, showing that they are forcing her to get eaten by a wild plant. Angered by this, Branch breaks free and attempts to rescue Poppy. He hitches a ride on a bug, grabs Cooper's leftover batch of cupcakes and a sharp picket fence, and heads for Poppy. He uses the cupcakes to distract the eyestocks and manages to save her in time, cutting her free from the eyestocks. However, they are still surrounded by eyestocks. Branch decides to apologize for what has transpired, and Poppy happily hugs him, accepting his apology. When the eyestocks witness this, they are torn as to what Poppy is to Branch. Branch tries to tell them that Poppy isn't dangerous and that she's right about having too much safety. Unable to tell if she's still dangerous or safe, the eyestocks wither from mass confusion, except for a single eyestock, who seems to have changed the way its suppose to behave as it replies "Awesome". Poppy notices the surviving plant and suggests that they offer it a different opportunity.

The "awesome" responding eyestock becomes the main prevention of flying accidents as it instead guides the trolls in their flight paths. Branch thanks Poppy for her idea to finally provide a safety plan to the trolls. Poppy tries to tell the moral in all this but Branch invites her instead to fly with him by offering a bug for her. They set off to have fun, with the scene ending with the eyestock suddenly responding "danger." again.
