Glowing Baby Boy
26 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A second-generation meteor mutant falls in Clark and Lana's life in this mediocre episode.

A woman is about to conceive a baby when she mysteriously explodes in the car along with her husband, the driver. Clark and Lana discover the baby, which is all that remains from the explosion. Clark believes that he is from another planet as well, similar to the crater that Clark's ship created when he arrived on Earth. However, the boy rapidly grows at seven-year intervals each day, and the boy, along with Clark and Lana, that he doesn't have much more time to live. In return, Clark tries to help the boy find his real father.

Clark and the boy have an emotional connection due to the fact that they both feel like they have uncaring biological fathers. But the content of the episode is really supernatural and not one of the best episodes of this series.
