Taking Jamie under his wing, Nathan and the gang head off to a club where everyone takes a load of pills. But the gang soon realise that the pills reverse their super-powers: Curtis can fast-forward time, everyone who touches Alisha thinks that she's an ugly minger, etc. In a Curtis 'flash-forward', he is confused to find himself on the community centre roof, dressed in a real superhero outfit, and kissing a mysterious girl...
