"So I got blamed for the biggest prank in highschool history and now I got a year of Detention. Problem is I didn't do it, so now I bust out of detention every day to try and find out who did. It's been a bumpy ride, I even suspected my best friend of being the one behind it, someone who goes by the name Radcircles. But it's not Cam he was hypnotised to do his part of the prank! But it got me thinking Holger and I both know the word Butterscotch puts Cam into a hypnotic state because of my tenth birthday. That was the day my dad hired this crazy hypnotist to entertain us and he messed with Cam's head! And only the people there that day could have known about it, So is someone in this picture Radcircles?"
Mrs. Ping is driving Camillio Martinez and Lee to school. Holger Holgaart however has opted to run alongside the car to school, according to Camillio he's been all secret service agent like since Camillio won the election. Camillio requests Lee's plan of action for finding Radcircles and more specifically the man whom brainwashed him.
Since it seems that Radcircles used the Butterscotch trigger phrase to hypnotise Camillio then the suspect list has been narrowed to the people at Lee's party. The Amazing Finnwich the man whom hypnotised Camillio has since seemingly dropped off the face of the earth then bar Lee's parents that just leaves The Outcasts: a group of once cool students now at the bottom of the barrel.
Lou Black Leader and chronic thumb sucker, Deuce Markowitz eater of anything and everything and finally Jenny Jerkins chronic nose picker. According to Lee the trio use to be cool when Lee first moved into town but have since developing their gross habits they've become majorly unpopular. Camillio momentarily loses his temper swearing that he will find out who hypnotised him and why.
Lee notes that Camillio is starting to sound like Lee to which they share a small bonding moment. In Class the Outcasts watch a documentry about Tatzelwurms, since prehistoric times they have held the role of guardians of important places and believed sacred. A rare Red Subspecies, such as the school's mascot, in particular is said to have special properties, their whiskers said to be able to break curses.
Camillio overhears the Outcasts plan to retreive a red Tatzelwurm whisker from the mascot and that gives him a plan. Camillio informs Lee that at lunch time he is going to used the Tatzelwurm whisker as his way in to earn the outcasts trust and use that to figure out the brainwasher's identity. Unfortunately Lee is late for detention and Principal General Barrage catches him and has his eyebots escort him.
During lunch Camillio and Holger Sit with the Outcasts. The trio questions why Camillio would want to sit with them to which Camillio questions why they always sit by themselves. Apparently this is the only place anyone will let them sit as it is the furthest Table away. The group states their plans to capture the Tatzelwurm, remove one of it's whiskers, and break the un-cool curse hanging over them.
During Gym Class Camillio calls Lee and informs him of his plan. Aware of the fact that Lee and the Tatzelwurm are close Camillio has promised the group that he can snag them a Tatzelwurm whisker, to which Lee questions if he's crazy.
In detention Lee asks Biffy Goldstien if he can find Finnwich on the internet, Biffy will look into it after he's done painting a picture of Mrs. Rumplekittykat. The two synch up their phones and Lee enters the airvents to meet up with the Outcasts.
Lee meets with Holger, Camillio and the outcasts in the boy's washroom. Realizing that no one there has a plan Lee has to come up with one. Lee proposes that they use some food as bait for the Tatzelwurm, the only thing edible they have is Holger's sandwhich to which they toss into the vents. While they wait Lee and Camillio question Lou about Lee's birthday party to which he reveals that he went temporarily deaf that week from Cotten in his ears.
While Lou has been eliminated Barrage interrupts the stake out and though the group is narrowly able to hide the Tatzelwurm escapes with the sandwhich. Switching to plan B Lee takes the group to the library. After securing the group's secrecy Lee uses The key to open the hidden passage way in the library and the group goes into the underground tunnels.
The group splits into three party's to look for the Tatzelwurm, Lee and Deuce, Camillio and Jenny, Holger and Lou. Lou comments that the tunnels looks familliar, like he was there before. While alone with Jenny Camillio drills her about the party, Jenny can't remember that entire year because she got kicked in the head by a horse while vacationing with her family at a ranch.
While alone with him Lee questions Deuce about the Butterscotch trigger phrase which causes him to have a panic attack. Holger and Lou calls in, having just found the Tatzelwurm. Camillio asks about what happened to Deuce to which Jenny explains that B-Words causes him to freak out, hence making it impossible for him to have told anyone about Butterscotch.
The Tatzelwurm leads the group to the new brainwashing room before it splits. The Outcasts suddenly have a flashback and realizes this is where they developed their gross habits under the influence of The Prank Song. Lee questions the group about Butterscotch which triggers a chain reaction of Deuce panicking, Camillio going monkey, and Holger freaking out from his fear of Monkey's.
Lee uses the Queen of Hearts phrase to calm Camillio down. Lee also notices one of the files Camillio knocked over which features information about Tatzelwurms being brainwashed and turned into Cyborgs. Holger however tries to brainwash Camillio into not reacting to Butterscotch anymore and straps him down for the proceedure. Lee knocks Holger out of the way to free Camillio and is knocked into the alarm for the base.
The group escapes into more abandoned subway tunnels, these ones not converted into a lab. Lee asks once more if any of the Outcasts are Radcircles or know who he is however they point out that they have bigger things to worry about in the form of Cyborg Tatzelwurms. The Red one comes in and begins defending the group against it's cyborg brethren and Lee goes to help him.
Picking up where the preview left off the group decides that the best course of action is to retreat. The group follows the Tatzelwurm into a room with some sort of Pyramid. Lee calls in Biffy for help whom states that the group is directly underneath the cafeteria. The Tatzelwurm directs the group's attention to the top of the pyramid where they find a hatch leading into the Cafeteria.
While Lee and the Tatzelwurm hold off the others the group evacuates through the hatch. Unfortunately Lee is forced to leave the Tatzelwurm behind and escape with the others. Lee reveals that he snagged a Tatzelwurm whisker during the commotion and gives it to the Outcasts in exchange for their secrecy in these matters and any information they have on Radcircles.
Their secrecy they can do but none of them can give Lee any info on Radcircles and thus gets the curse breaking whisker. Unfortunately Biffy calls Lee and reminds him that he needs to get back to detention now, and Lee arrives just in time. After Barrage Leaves Biffy tells Lee that he couldn't find any information on Finnwich, basically he doesn't exist. This confuses Lee.
Camillio calls Lee and points out that they still know nothing of Radcircles or who brainwashed him. After Lee checks out for night he knocks over the picture frame from the party breaks it and realizes that there was someone there at the party hidden in the corner of the frame that he never knew about... Biffy Goldstien!!
