After failing to convince the town of the CEO's true nature, Ben, Tom and Angela worries about where are they are going to be starved to death if they don't get the factory back. Meanwhile, the CEO reveals to his nephew, Darren, his true nature of the evil plan; to put the cookies' factory out of business as revenge for foiling the plan of taking over the world.
Meanwhile, Ben, Tom and Angela come up with a plan: assembling Erick that had tried to kidnap and marry Ben's former owner, Barbie, to try to take back the factory, but before this, Erick reveals that he has been cured of her desire for fur coats by Dr. Pavlov and is released into the custody of the probation office on the provision that he will be forced to pay the remainder of her fortune (eight million pounds) to all the dog shelters in the borough of Westminster should he repeat his family's crime. Erick therefore ends his working relationship with her ex-girlfriend, Barbie, and has him lock away all her fur coats. During the journey, Tom was about to give up Ben for running against the CEO, but soon Ben develops a secret strategy with four categories: hard work, charm, big ideas, and honesty. Tom easily wins hard work, by helping the Gardener clean up a pile of leaves and separating them neatly, and refuses to let the CEO run for mayor unopposed, so he does the only thing he can do - enters the race for mayor. With election night fast approaching, Ben comes up with a foolproof plan for winning Tom the vote. Afterwards, the crowd is won over and he is elected Mayor.
