Gabe led Chloe's class on a field trip through the plant, embarrassing her with his corny jokes. During the field trip, everyone was taken hostage by Earl Jenkins, who was suffering from meteor rock poisoning.
He reported Chloe missing and led the search parties when she was kidnapped by the Sheriff's deputy.
He was on hand to greet Lionel Luthor the day he arrived at the plant to announce that it was closing.
Lionel promoted him when Chloe started providing Lionel with information about Clark and he bought a new house in Brat Flats. But Lionel ordered Lex to fire him when Chloe refused to continue spying on Clark. Lionel went further of course and made it nearly impossible for him to get another job.
When Chloe decided to testify against Lionel Luthor, he entered protective custody with her. Their safe house was blown up moments after they entered.
Gabe and Chloe were both led through a tunnel before the blast. It is later revealed that the explosion was staged by Lex to fake Chloe's death to protect her from Lionel.
