Efficient Emma is less than impressed to have someone so relaxed on staff and by the end of the first day, Rikki has had enough. She quits. Meanwhile, Miriam decides to annoy Emma and cuts the power to the cool room. On her way out, Emma notices that the cool room’s warning light is on so she uses her powers to snap freeze everything, including, unknowingly, Miriam! The next morning Emma finds Miriam, frozen stiff. Cleo, Rikki, and Lewis come over to help out. Using Lewis' scientific knowledge and Rikki's powers and Cleo's powers they slowly thaw Miriam out. It’s a race against time to thaw Miriam out and not get caught.
