Storyline

Cha-Ka becomes enthralled with a large, multicolored beetle he finds. Against Holly's advice to set it free, Cha-Ka tries to cage the beetle, which ends up biting him. Initially unknown to Jack, Will or Holly, Cha-Ka then goes about wreaking havoc for everyone and everything in the Land of the Lost, including getting his friends into potential mortal danger, most specifically Will. When Jack and Holly eventually learn from Enik what Cha-Ka has been doing and in turn tell Enik about the beetle bite, Enik knows that the issue is that the beetle - a scarab - has brought out the evil in the creature that has been bitten, the only antidote being for the creature to atone for the cruelty shown to the scarab. There is no guarantee that Jack, Holly or Enik can make an evil Cha-Ka right his wrong, let alone do it in time to save Will. Written by Huggo
