Connelly explains to the increasingly outraged boys that the Super Adventure Club was founded by adventurer and paedophile William P. Phineas, who became convinced that having sex with children was the key to spiritual and physical immortality due to the "marlocks" in the children's bodies. (Not that Phinehas became immortal; he was hit by a train in 1892.) As they are escorted out by security guards, the boys incapacitate the guards, break into the Deprivation Room, and set Chef free, but as they try to lead him over the rope bridge to freedom, it is clear that his attachment to the Super Adventure Club is too strong to break, and he bids them a final farewell before turning back. He never makes it to the other side of the bridge, however; a bolt of lightning causes it to break, and Chef falls into the chasm below, where various wild animals tear his body apart, and even Cartman is convinced Chef is dead when his corpse evacuates its bowels.

* CallBack: "Trapped in the Closet" featured the NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer "THIS IS WHAT SCIENTOLOGISTS ACTUALLY BELIEVE" when explaining OT-3. When Connelly explains the Super Adventure Club's beliefs (that having sex with children makes you immortal), a similar message pops up.

* HateSink: William Connelly and his Super Adventure Club are a group of disgusting pedophiles who go around the world raping children, and the plot is about them trying to brainwash Chef into becoming one of them, which they unfortunately succeed at doing, no less.

The boys' old friend, Chef, returns, and they soon find out that Chef is a shell of his former self, thanks to a secret society.

to:

In a flashback, we see Chef leave South Park to join the Super Adventure Club in search of a more meaningful life. When he returns, the people of South Park are delighted, and enthralled by the stories of his exploits with the club. However, Stan, Kyle, Cartman, and Kenny think he is behaving strangely. They shrug it off at first, and look forward to his return to the school kitchen, only to be horrified when he suggests they all make love to him, his voice taking on uneven and unnatural inflections as he speaks. The police open a paedophilia investigation, and even the boys' old friend, Chef, returns, and they soon find out that attempts to get Chef to stop making sexual suggestions to them fail.

Thinking the Super Adventure Club might know why
Chef is acting oddly, the boys go to their headquarters and meet with William Connelly, the club leader. Sure enough, they get an explanation, but it's not what they expect: the Super Adventure Club are globe-trotting child molesters (as opposed to the Adventure Club, who are globe-trotting daredevils), and Chef has been indoctrinated into their ranks. On returning to South Park, they take Chef to Dr. Neeland, a shell of psychiatrist, who says that brainwashing can take months or even years to undo. When Stan says that Chef's favourite activity before his former self, thanks brainwashing was having sex with women, Dr. Neeland suggests they take him to the Peppermint Hippo to watch the strippers. Chef remains unengaged until Spontaneous Bootay, a secret society.very large black stripper, performs for him, snapping him back to his old self... only for Connelly to fire a tranquiliser dart into his neck and drag him away.

Connelly explains to the increasingly outraged boys that the Super Adventure Club was founded by adventurer and paedophile William J. Phinehas, who became convinced that having sex with children was the key to spiritual and physical immortality due to the "marlocks" in the children's bodies. (Not that Phinehas became immortal; he was run over by a train in 1892.) As they are escorted out by security guards, the boys incapacitate the guards, break into the Deprivation Room, and set Chef free, but as they try to lead him over the rope bridge to freedom, it is clear that his attachment to the Super Adventure Club is too strong to break, and he bids them a final farewell before turning back. He never makes it to the other side of the bridge, however; a bolt of lightning causes it to break, and Chef falls into the chasm below, where various wild animals tear his body apart, and even Cartman is convinced Chef is dead when his corpse evacuates its bowels.

Back in South Park, with no body to recover, Chef's spatula is put in a coffin as Kyle reads a eulogy suggesting that people remember the good in Chef, not the brainwashing done by the Super Adventure Club. Meanwhile, the Super Adventure Club have recovered Chef's body and resurrected him as Darth Chef, a paedophile Sith Lord... who is never seen again in the series.
