The episode starts with Gumball bragging about Penny at the dinner table at home, much to Darwin's annoyance. Then Gumball gets an e-mail, hoping it will be Penny and he rushes upstairs. But discovers it is a chain letter from someone named The Snatcher which says if he doesn't forward that e-mail to ten people he will be cursed. First he will lose his money than his friends and then his family. Then that night, he will show his face in the mirror and with his long, cold claws he will rip his spirit away from him. Gumball then wants to delete it but Darwin tells him to forward it. Gumball doesn't listen to him and deletes it anyway.
