Max then comes in and says that Prince Charming has decided to use the Sub Station to be the location for a royal party he is hosting. Harper expresses interest in this party, but her stepfamily laughs at her.

Back in the loft, Harper summons Alex, who uses a spell to transform Harper's book dress into a lavish ball gown and turn glass bowls into glass slippers.
