Sofia's helping her animal friends rehearse for the Leafsong Festival when Crackle arrives and immediately starts causing problems with her fire breathing. Director Dove tells her she can't be in the festival because her fire breathing makes her a hazard. Crackle leaves feeling very rejected and confides in Sofia, who's also not in the show since she's not an animal and the Leafsong Festival is for animals only, that she thinks her fire breathing causes nothing but trouble and wishes she were rid of it for just one day. The two hear Clover and Director Dove talking about how the magic show they were part of went out of business because people prefer magic spells to magic tricks. Hearing this gives Sofia an idea to see Cedric and ask him to help Crackle. They arrive at Cedric's workshop and Sofia introduces him to Crackle and tells him she is having troubles with her fire, which comes out when she doesn't want it to. Crackle instantly proves Sofia's case by accidentally unleashing a fire blast that nearly hits Wormwood. Sofia asks for a spell that can help Crackle with her fire breathing and Cedric offers to cast a spell that will take away her fire and put it in a jar. Sofia doesn't think this is a good idea but Crackle tells her "Fine by me." and Sofia reluctantly agrees. Cedric casts the extraction spell and puts Crackle's fire in a jar. As soon as Sofia and Crackle leave, Cedric reveals that he plans to use Crackle's fire to take over the kingdom: He'll cover the whole kingdom in forever frost to blackmail Roland into handing over his crown and then restore the kingdom with Crackle's dragon fire.
Sofia and Crackle head back and Crackle shows everyone that she's fire free. When Crackle can't roast Clover's carrots however, he tells Sofia that he misses Crackle's fire breathing and Sofia tells Clover that she does too. Meanwhile, Robin and Mia are having a spat because Robin's letting all of Director Dove's praise go to her head. Finally, Mia has had enough and leaves in a huff and lands in the pond. Cedric casts the forever frost curse, soon the whole kingdom is covered in forever frost, and Mia is trapped in the frozen pond.
Director Dove tells Sofia this is forever frost, since he encountered it once before in the Kingdom of Freezenburg, and tells her that he'll have to cancel the Leafsong Festival since the only thing that can melt it is dragon fire. Clover tries to get Crackle to melt the ice but Crackle reminds him she can't breath fire anymore. Sofia urges Crackle to get her fire back from Cedric. At first, Crackle refuses since getting her fire back means she can't be in the festival until Sofia reminds her that unless she gets it back there won't be a festival and both Enchancia and Mia will remain trapped in the frost. When Crackle hears this, she decides that Sofia is right and decides to get her fire back. Meanwhile, it soon becomes obvious that Cedric's plot isn't going to work because, as usual, he didn't think things through and because of this he drops the jar containing Crackle's fire. Sofia and her friends go after it and get it. The moment Sofia opens the jar, Crackle's fire breath returns to her and she starts to melt the forever frost. While she does so, Robin apologizes to Mia for being such a fathead and the two reconcile. With the frost gone, the Leafsong Festival is able to go on, and Crackle contributes to it with her fire.
