Ice - S1-E8

Corrected entry: The worm is supposed to increase production of a violent hormone, making the host incredibly violent and unable to control it. Yet the infected member of the group manages to hide it perfectly between making their first kill and being discovered by the rest.

Correction: It's explained that the host becomes violent because of the parasitic worm attacking the hypothalamus gland of the brain. When the infected person is finally discovered, the worm is shown to be making its way back towards their brain, indicating that the worm makes its way around the host's body, and that the host can behave normally if the worm is not near the brain.
