At Death Headquarters, Reina is preparing to give Manny some training in weapons. She brings him into the weapons room, where Manny sees a toaster and believes it to be a weapon for fighting bad guys.Reina tells him that it is a toaster for making bagels, and Manny pulls out a boomerang-blade object which he thinks is for cutting bagels. Reina takes it away and tells him not to touch that without first consulting the manual since it is a very dangerous weapon, but Manny idiotically tosses it anyway. The boomerang device busts through the wall of Death Headquarters and Reina loses her whiskers and balance. Manny then learns from a sticky note that El Cambiar de forma has escaped from prison. Bella explains that Cambiar de forma is a dangerous foe that can take the shape of any object, and he is threatening to get revenge on Reina for putting him in prison. After hearing about El Cambiar de forma (and pronouncing his name incorrectly, as Shape Shifter), Manny begins to suspect that anyone in Death headquarters could be Cambiar de forma and beats up Bella and the Chief using Reina as a blunt object. Reina call Manny an idiot and they get in another squabble, but soon the Chief assigns Manny to protect Reina since she's now unable to balance herself. Meanwhile, the other Death agents were put out of commission by Manny's misuse of the laser boomerang.
Manny and Reina slide down through a chute into the Death Mobile, and are about to leave, when the car suddenly transforms into Cambiar de forma. Manny is freaked out by Cambiar de forma's weird eyes and accidentally runs him over with the real Death Mobile while escaping. They arrive at Reina's apartment, where Manny pledges to not allow Cambiar de forma to get the jump on them again. He begins to blow up some objects around Reina's apartment, and then he opens the window, inadvertently allowing Cambiar de forma to get in. They ward off Cambiar de forma temporarily, but Reina is fed up with Manny's childish antics and kicks him out of the apartment. Manny comes back and knocks on her door, eventually making "puppy dog eyes" when Reina initially refuses to give him another chance. However, as soon as she lets Manny in, he reveals himself to really be Cambiar de forma. The real Manny is outside, sulking to himself about wrecking Reina's apartment while Cambiar de forma hops by in the form of a pogo stick with Reina tied to it. Reina yells at Manny to get his attention, and Manny, upon turning, realizes that Reina's being captured by Cambiar de forma and tries to chase after them with the Death Mobile. Unfortunately for Manny, when he presses the button to open the car, it blasts off without him, as he didn't read the manual.
At Cambiar de forma's hideout, he traps Reina inside a glass container with his Demon Atomic Bomb, a bomb set to go off nine times, one for each of her lives. Although his blast resistant goggles fail to cover either of his eyes, Cambiar de forma starts blasting away anyways, but is distracted by a ladybug on the wall. Meanwhile, Manny is scouting for Reina when he recognizes the smell of burnt cat from earlier. Manny tunnels into Cambiar de forma's hideout just as Cambiar de forma reaches the ninth blast, and Reina's ninth and final life. Manny uses the boomerang device from earlier to lay a trap for Cambiar de forma, who gets his tongue caught in a bear trap when he tries to catch a bug with it. Manny then rescues Reina from the glass chamber and puts Cambiar de Forma in there in her place. Manny leans on the bomb detonator, causing it to go off and injure Cambiar de forma.Reina claims to lose her balance and purposely falls on the bomb detonator again, causing Cambiar de forma to turn into a pile of smoldering goo. After Reina thanks Manny for saving her, Manny remarks he would have been there sooner but he stopped to read the boomerang's manual. Reina points out that he read the manual to the fax machine, so Manny tells her to run. They escape from Cambiar de forma's hideout just as the boomerang blows it up behind them, and freeze in mid detention to smile at each other as the episode ends.
