The episode starts with Tim Buktu soliloquizing on how the jungle has changed him. It shows that Tim has been watching Ben, studying his aliens. Meanwhile, the Tennysons arrive at Adrenaworld: Safari-Land. Max claims that they lucked out winning tickets. Gwen questions how they even got mail in the Rustbucket. Ben then questions why they're in the line for the Congo A Go Go. Max claims that Ben and Gwen love that ride, but they both deny it, and states that it's a baby ride. Max then points towards bruxa puppets, and explains that getting a strand of your hair on the puppets, cause your eyes to glow purple, and you become a helpless puppet. Ben and Gwen are both unamazed. Ben proposes the idea that Max should stay there, and he and Gwen should go on the actual fun rides.
Later on, the Tennysons are on a boat, and the tour lady entertains little kids as they sail through the jungle. Ben spots a fun zone in the distance, and transforms into Overflow and goes after it. Unfortunately for Gwen, she is left behind. As Overflow walks through the water, he is attacked by animatronic animals. He eventually times out, and a robot panther grabs him by his shirt. A robot bird then flies in and picks at his hair. The bird then hands the piece of hair to Tim Buktu, who uses it on a bruxa puppet resembling Ben. Ben is then put under Tim's influence.
Meanwhile, Max and Gwen are still on the boat. Max notices that Ben is gone. Then then spot him in the distance. Ben begins to dance, entertaining the kids. Tim forces Ben to transform into Stinkfly. He then attacks the boat, right before he times out and walks away. Max and Gwen follow him. Ben walks through the forest, and Tim is bummed that he reverted back to human. Ben explains he can't control when he times out. He then questions who he is. Tim emerges from the shadows and reveals himself. Meanwhile, Max and Gwen are walking throuhg the forest. Gwen makes the observation that Ben's eyes are purple, so it's likely that he is under the influence of the bruxa puppets. They then arrive at Ben trying to break into a building. Tim Buktu flies through, and makes Ben attack Gwen and Max. ben ends up throwing Max into a tree, injuring him. The two then retreat.
Gwen walks into the building and confronts Tim. Omni-Enhanced Wildvine walks in from behind Gwen. He begins to destroy the bridge that Gwen is standing on. She's then left dangling from the bridge over the water. OE Wildvine then hijacks the boat, and steers it towards a waterfall. Gwen throws a torch and Tim's wings, destroying them. She attempts to grab the puppet, but Tim picks her up and throws her into the water. Wildvine manages to pull her out. Max then swings in and rips the puppet, breaking Tim's control. Tim falls into the boat right before it tips over. Max rushes over to the waterfall and notices that everyone is okay. Later, the cops arrest Tim. Gwen asks Ben how was it like being a almost-villain. Ben, however, looks a bit down. Max questions if he's okay. Ben explains that he could've hurt people, and he did hurt Max. He states that he doesn't want to put people in danger, and he should rethink this whole "hero" thing. Max explains that Tim lost his perspective on things because he's alone, but Ben on the other hand isn't. He has Team Tennyson. Max and Gwen goes off to ride another ride, and ben looks as his Omnitrix and sighs. Gwen asks if he's coming, and ben chases right after them.
Tim Buktu returns and is obsessed with upstaging Ben.
Overflow: I'm on my own tour boat! And this tour boat is heading down top secret river. Gwen: What? You can't leave me here.
Tim Buktu: (laughs) As much as I love trading these 'arch-enemy blows', my evil plan has a schedule. (pulls back the undergrowth to reveal the door is locked and chained) Oh, dang it! The employees changed the locks on me again! Just like my mom! (Ben gives Tim a weird look) Uhhh, forget that last bit, OK?
