Synopsis
Jughead tries a new restaurant in town run by Darlene, a witch in disguise. She gives him his heart's desire -- a huge junk food meal -- in exchange for his metabolism. Over the next month, Jughead eats like normal, but grows very large. The gang tries to trade Darlene other virtues to get Jughead's metabolism back -- Archie's pure heart, Veronica's status, Betty's compassion -- but Darlene swindles them all. Jughead eventually confides in Sabrina, and the two hatch a plan to get the gang's virtues back.
