Eric decides to use his opponent's lack of empathy to his advantage, and bases his campaign speech on how he could make the election relevant to everyone, including children, rather than picking on the little guy.

She presents her finding to Mr. Norton, who informs the class it is at their age that girls begin to lose interest in the STEM subjects. The rest of the class cannot see their partners due to the beaker of sludge in their way, but Riley and Farkle can see each other crystal clear, because they worked together equally to complete the science.

Jexica's popularity subsequently tumbles, and Riley finds out that Lucas actually knew she was Jexica all the time. In the end, Riley learns she should not be afraid to express herself on the Internet, regardless of what other people might think; it only matters what her friends think because they are the ones who really care about her. Meanwhile, Auggie receives an e-mail from a "prince" claiming to be his friend and offering him a large sum of money, which leads Cory and Topanga to talk to him about trusting people on the Internet. When Auggie later receives an e-mail from Ava who is London and needs money, he feels he needs to help because they are friends.

Riley receives a D on her first test in Spanish class, while Maya earns an A and is proud of her rare accomplishment. When Riley hears that a permanent record is kept beginning in high school and how she performed in middle school does not matter, she worries about the impact of her low grade on her future. Cory and Topanga have always known Riley to be a good student, but after talking to her Spanish teacher, Señora Feinstein-Chang, they realize Riley is presented with a new challenge and needs to work on becoming better. Señora Feinstein-Chang assures Riley the D is only one grade and what she does on her next test matters more toward gauging her progress, as does all of her past work, her true "permanent record". After she studies extensively, and demonstrates to Señora Feinstein-Chang in class that she can speak Spanish better, Riley earns an A− on the next Spanish test.

Sage tells them they need to make a decision about him, and Farkle and Zay similarly tell Lucas he needs to choose between Riley and Maya. Meanwhile, Maya struggles with her first painting for her new art teacher, Mr. Jackson, as he questions her about what her work is saying, what influences are behind it, and more importantly, who she is. Riley also wonders since she is no longer seeing the rebellious side of her best friend. Maya denies that she has changed, but after Mr. Jackson shows Maya her painting from a different perspective, she realizes how much Riley and her parents have influenced her. As she has become more like Riley, Maya is in need of finding her true self and asks Riley for help, so they go out in search of that. Around the same time, Lucas comes to the Matthews' apartment ready to reveal his decision about Riley and Maya to them, only to discover they are not there, so Cory, Topanga, and Katy urge him to share this news.

Riley and Maya visit Shawn at his place in upstate New York. When he hears that Maya has lost a part of herself due to Riley's influence, Shawn tells the girls how he was similarly affected by Cory, and like Maya, he wants to find his edgy side again. Knowing the girls are with Shawn, Cory comes for a visit as well and sees Shawn is angry at him for changing him too much. Cory reminds Shawn about his quality of "reckless spontaneity" to help him through his crisis. This also helps Riley to find Maya, as they head back to the city, to their art classroom at school, where Maya expresses her anger at Riley through a painting. It escalates into a paint fight, which Mr. Jackson walks in on; he notices Maya's painting and sees a greater artistic voice in her. Meanwhile, Lucas remains quiet about his choice of Riley or Maya and sits in Riley's bay window until the girls return, but when he finds out Maya has not been herself lately, the three decide to wait until they know who they are first. Shawn, on the other hand, having rediscovered himself, proposes to Katy, and she accepts.

At the park, she confronts two girls from her past, Carla and Renee, who are anticipating to see her vandalize the park, but they do not see the same Maya they knew before. Still, Maya gets caught by Officer James, who brings her back to the Matthews' apartment and charges her with vandalism.

As soon as the group arrives, Riley hurts her foot after falling off the bus, which causes her to miss the hiking trip, but she is content to sit by a bay window at the lodge. As she witnesses the changing season through an autumn leaf that falls on her lap, and after she has given Maya time to find herself, Riley wants the love triangle involving her, Maya and Lucas resolved.

After everyone becomes aware of Evan, an insecure Lucas finds himself sorting through his feelings for both Riley and Maya, while Riley gains more insight about why Maya became more like her. Evan has the group participate in a game using a book Cory remembers from his high school trip to the ski lodge. Evan's question, a different one from what Cory faced, has the group exploring what makes a meaningful relationship. Soon afterward, Maya engages in a serious conversation with Josh, where her true feelings for him—and for Lucas—come out.

Cory has his class explore whether people are naturally good or evil, but only Riley is given the assignment of debating the question from the evil point of view. Because of Riley's optimistic and innocent view of the world, and her inability to see how people could possibly be evil, Maya helps her with the assignment by showing her the world's problems in the news. It helps Riley prepare for her debate, but in delving into her evil side, she takes it too far when she impulsively eats Zay's cookie and is in no hurry to apologize for her action. Meanwhile, after hearing about the condition of New York's beaches from Riley and Maya, Auggie decides he wants to clean up the beach and Topanga takes him. Auggie realizes he cannot do the whole task alone but is assured he is making a difference by doing his part.

Despite having no face for more than three years because of Auggie, the bear still holds a great deal of sentimental value for Riley. This leads to a frantic search throughout the Matthews apartment, while Maya becomes completely frustrated over having no tacos to enjoy. During the search, Auggie comes across the silver boxing gloves necklace Alan gave to Cory in the Boy Meets World episode "Kid Gloves", which Cory thought was lost forever; he later gives the necklace to Auggie, hoping he will hold on to it. Otherwise, the search turns out nothing on the missing bear, and Riley eventually comes to terms with the loss. Afterward, the group finally gets to enjoy some tacos, and Riley gives Maya a bobblehead she was wanting all along from Paco's Tacos.
