After stealing an experimental flower laced with meteor-rock pollen from Dr. Steven Hamilton, the employee of the Luthor Corp, James Beales has a truck accident on the road and is rescued by Jonathan Kent. However, the flower releases its pollen on Jonathan faces, and he unleashes his innermost repressed desires first with Martha and his anger towards the Luthors. He enters in coma later. Then Lana becomes affected and tries to seduce Clark. Pete also becomes affected by the Nicodemus flower in the same way. While Clark helps Lex track down the source, Lex hides from Clark that Dr. Steven Hamilton is working for him, but they find the cure in an old book. Written by

Dr. Hamilton had a copy of this book in his barn.
"The Nicodemus Diary".
It's a firsthand account of Smallville's first mystery. In 1871, the whole settlement went postal before they even had a post office.
Nice to know Smallville was still whack before the meteors got here.
Yeah. In the diary, they talk about a flower; the settlers called it Nicodemus. Said it liberated repressed feelings, sent them into rages, then fever, and finally... well...
