He succeeds in finding this flower and brings it back to the city, presents it to the queen and wins her heart. The two live HappilyEverAfter for decades, producing [[BabiesEverAfter countless]] children and rule their city well. The flowers, which have bred, seeded and multiplied and are now owned by everyone in the city then drain the life out of their hosts, killing the entire Knight's family, wife and city, leaving him the single survivor of his entire kingdom.

** There was the time travel episode where a woman decides to kill an evil dictator as an infant by posing as his nanny. The baby was UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler, and she succeeds. However, another nanny who saw what happened replaces the baby with another child, the implication being that the new child is the Hitler we had to deal with. Which would have been a good episode, if it weren't for a very bad case of research failure. The baby Adolf is the cherished son of his proud and well-off father, who is able to afford a nanny in the first place.

The real Hitler's father was a civil servant, he didn't have a nanny, and the pair were not close.
