Zach is confident enough to muster up the courage to ask Rachel to the big school dance. Just as he's just about to do it, Hogan, the new kid from Australia, shows up and steals his thunder. But when Zach learns that Hogan is just using the dance as a way to embarrass Rachel and ruin her chances of becoming class president, Zach knows he has to stop him somehow. Now Zach's on a mission to recover his magical powers in order to stop Hogan before he can sabotage Rachel's chances.
