During a rave at the Indian caves (first seen in "Skinwalker"), a student kills himself in a wild stunt and Pete gets zapped by something that makes him go to extremes. There's a pattern of other people dying from such behavior and when Chloe and Clark investigate the cave she gets infected as well. As Lex determines there are alien parasites in the cave and they feed on the adrenaline in their hosts, Chloe and Pete team up and slip a piece of red meteor rock to Clark so he can get in on the rush-fun but he manages to escape its influence – but not before Lana gets the wrong idea when he locks lips with Chloe. Clark rescues his two friends as they drive off a cliff and fortunately Chloe doesn't remember anything about Clark's secret – but Lana isn't buying Clark's lack of an explanation.
