A bored Sabrina gets more than she bargained for when Hilda offers her a "can of worms" spell to spice up her daily life which is transformed into a melodramatic soap opera. When a mysterious one-eyed janitor accidentally hits Harvey with a ladder, Sabrina's sweetheart wakes up with amnesia, and a dastardly Libby seizes the chance to steal him, convincing him that he is her boyfriend and has agreed to kiss her in public at the climax of the school fashion show. Libby also steals the diamond ring that Mr. Pool is about to offer to the school nurse and plants it on Sabrina's bag, who must enlist her aunt's help to prove her innocence before the spells runs its narrative course.
