Craig, Kelsey, and J.P enter a boat into the annual Creek bottle boat race with Mortimor as pilot. When the race starts, Wren's boat blows up due to a lack of air holes for carbon dioxide from the baking soda–vinegar reaction to escape, stalling the boats. Mortimor manages to escape the foam and sail the boat to the finish line, winning the race. Sailor Boy reveals the race's prize: a week of snacks from the Trading Tree funded by him.
The Stump Kids immediately head to the Trading Tree, only to learn that Kit is completely out of snacks. Kelsey and J.P. accidentally reveal that Craig had shared the secret of Kit's supplier with them, to her dismay. Kit admits to the rest of the Creek Kids that her grandmother Evelyn gives her snacks in exchange for good grades, but her report card was so bad that Evelyn cut her off entirely. As a straight-A student, the report card came as a surprise to Kit. Kit begins to fear that the Trading Tree will shut down, until a panicked Bobby suddenly offers the help of Craig. Initially irritated, he becomes motivated to save the Trading Tree.
Kit and the Stump Kids make their way to Evelyn's house, where they attempt to demonstrate Kit's intelligence through a game show, but Evelyn refuses to hear them out, claiming that Kit has prioritized trading over school. Craig worries aloud that Kit will have to attend summer school, giving Evelyn the idea. They protest, but she has them leave, and returns to watching her soap opera.
Now in summer with Kit away, the Trading Tree is abandoned. Craig rallies his fellow Creek Kids to bring their own snacks, but they are unsatisfied with the lower quality. Bobby dips into his secret stash of candy, but he trips, causing many kids to fight over the spilled candy and leaving none for him. Widespread "starvation" begins to plague Creek Kids; the Stump Kids in particular begin to hallucinate food. However, J.P. notices a bunch of Squishers floating down the creek. Craig stops him and Kelsey from eating the Squishers upon seeing they have been imprinted with the Mark of the Mill, indicating Xavier sent them. Craig orders the Council of the Creek to come into session near the Overpass.
Once the Creek Council enters the Overpass they find The Green Poncho blocking King Xavier, Maya and his Royal Knights from entering the other side. Once the King notices the Creek Council he introduces himself and explains that he got info that the Creek ran out of snacks so he provided a truck load of snacks for the other side to have, but he can't give the snacks because The Green Poncho is preventing them from entering. Eliza commands the Green Poncho to move out of the way so they can get some food. However Craig refuses to let the King enter their side because he believes the King is evil and is using snacks to gain their trust. Eliza disagrees saying that she's also evil and everyone's hungry, and she tells Craig that he's always being nice and likes giving people second chances. Craig notices that, but he still warns everyone that trusting the King would be a problem. Eliza however, tells him that Craig didn't provide any candy for everyone, and soon the creek Council starts arguing as the King Watches.
Paintball Mike then stops the argument and explains that a vote should determine whether the King should Enter, or Leave. Before the vote starts Craig warns the council one more time about trusting the King. So Kelsey arranges the vote, Thumbs Up to Let the King Enter, and Thumbs Down to let the King Leave. Once Craig calculates the votes, it became a tie by 4-4. Thus concluding that the King can't enter the Creek, but in a shocking twist Bobby made the final vote and chose to let the King enter. Craig was shocked that Bobby would choose to let the King in the creek with Bobby explaining that he lost faith that Craig would be able to solve all of their problems. By a 5-4 Vote, the King can enter the Creek. King Xavier was very pleased that he can enter the creek and informed the council that they would be “good friends”. As the Green Poncho was shocked the Creek would chose to trust the King, he left the Overpass in disappointment. And so the King and his side of the Creek entered the Creek. As the Stump Kids watched the King and his Royal Guard making their way to the creek, Craig says that “The Creek is Doomed.”
