After Aunt Clara displays another series of witchcraft gaffes, Endora believes there is no other option but to put her on witchcraft trial, a guilty verdict meaning that Clara is to be banished to earthbound mortality, unless she voluntarily chooses the alternative, which is to turn herself into an inanimate object forever. Samantha has mixed feelings about not wanting Aunt Clara to choose the latter option as Samantha learns that Aunt Clara has chosen her to be her defense attorney at the imminent trial. Samantha has to come up with a credible defense and helps Aunt Clara practice her witchcraft at the house, where the trial will be held. During all these proceedings, Samantha has to hide what is going on from any suspecting or unsuspecting mortals who may be or drop by unexpectedly at the house, including who would be a very disapproving Darrin. Darrin however may unwittingly come up with the best defense. Written by
