Following the clues left at the crime scene of a dead bounty hunter, Catherine and Vincent (Jay Ryan) work their way back to the head of the local fight club who the wrongly believe may be behind the bounty on Vincent. Of course over the course of the episode Vincent will expose his secret to a crowded bar room of disreputable individuals as well as the man he helps put in jail to close out the episode.

Wander Over Yonder - The Sick Day

When Wander (Jack McBrayer) gets sick, Sylvia (April Winchell) struggles to get her best friend to take it easy and rest while attempting to take care of his long list of chores which include hitting Lord Hater‘s (Keith Ferguson) snooze button and preventing the universe from coming to an end. “The Sick Day” has a simple premise of Wander learning how to let someone else help him for a change (although it takes quite a bit of his increasingly sickly attempts to help for the message to finally sink in). As for Sylvia, she proves capable of stepping in to Wander’s shoes (although she is quite surprised by the number of regular duties her best friend performs without her).
