Convinced that it will help him with his popularity, Porter signs Carl up as the reserve on the school's trivia team. Carl loves the team, but is scared of answering questions under pressure so he becomes the team coach instead. Determined to beat the Bennett High losing streak, Carl and Serge spy on their competition. But when they get caught, Porter uses his magic to get Serge to safety. This causes big trouble for Porter and he is taken upstairs to stand trial in Angel Court.
Meanwhile, the Bennett High team is foiled when their star player, Alex, is taken out of the game. Carl must face his fear and join the team, both for himself and for Porter, whose fate in Angel Court rests on how well Carl performs.
