In this homage to The Picture of Dorian Gray, Gracie (Ariel Winter) is working at an ice cream shop when Cassandra Hobbs (Crystal Lowe), a scout for the magazine TeenTeen offers her a photo shoot, turning down money, saying 'Its all about the desire.' After the shoot, Gracie's demeanor changes from sweet to diva and her picture on her phone begins to change into ugly. As Cassandra suggests, she cheats on her midterm and her friend Dylan (Nicholas Elia) is suspended instead. Flynn (Tiera Skovbye) is also getting a free shoot, so a jealous Gracie doses her smoothie with Red Dye #5, which makes Flynn break out in hives. Lexi (Julia Sarah Stone) is disgusted by her friend's actions and leaves the debut to see the models on the wall change from pretty to monstrous. Lexi also finds out that Cassandra is The Devil who steals the souls of any teen girl who wants to be known as the prettiest face in the world, even though Cassandra claims that she only offers encouragement and that Gracie and all the girls on her wall are secretly shallow and cutthroat because they refused to turn down the offer by deleting the headshot. As Gracie is chosen as the new face of Teen Teen magazine, Lexi deletes Gracie's ugly headshot from her phone in an attempt to bring Gracie back to normal. In an end narration, Lexi reveals that Cassandra was right: Gracie had the power all along to walk away from being famous and because she didn't, her beautiful face now hangs on Cassandra's wall while her new and permanent face is uglier than the one on her cell phone.Note: This is Ariel Winter's second time in the show since "Fear Never Knocks" and Elia's second time on the show since "Catching Cold."

Greg later finds an old book of Celtic folklore in a box of his mother's things. Upon reading it, he learns of a way to capture a leprechaun and gain three wishes. He baits a trap with a golden trophy and imprisons Seamus (Brendan Fletcher), a leprechaun who promises to give him whatever he wants. Seamus warns him though that "magic is all about balance," meaning that wishes come at a price. Greg's first wish is to become lucky. The next day, he wins a new bike in a contest and his crush Amy (Neela Todd) asks him to a dance, but his father abruptly loses his job. He tries to make up for this by wishing for wealth, prompting Seamus to summon him a pot of gold. Kathleen discovers Greg trying to hide the gold, and surprisingly asks "How many wishes have ya made?" She reveals that leprechauns are evil tricksters who always claim the soul of their captor as the cost of the third wish, and further tells her son that her great-grandfather Daniel was the only man who ever managed to avoid this fate, which infuriated the leprechauns and eventually led her family to flee Ireland for protection.

Seamus enters anyway, torturing the adults and claiming that he will take Greg's soul along with theirs.

Time is reversed to the day after Greg captured Seamus and all seems well....until Seamus arrives and explains that Daniel's final wish was actually to keep his own soul in exchange for the soul of his next male descendant.
