Storyline

Overweight teenager Jodi Melville is obsessed to lose weight. She feels rejected by her schoolmates except Pete, who defends her. Planning to attend Lana Lang's birthday party, Jodi submits herself to a radical diet: only vegetables planted in her father's greenhouse... but with soil full of kryptonite. Jodi immediately achieves a wonderful shape, but has a huge and uncontrollable starvation and needs human body fat as the side effect, threatening whoever is closest- her next potential victim is date Pete. Clark again is forced to break his date with Lana to try to save Pete and somehow stop Jodi. Whitney tries to get back together with Lana by informing her about being accepted to Kansas State University. Meanwhile, Lex views Chloe's 'Wall of Weird' at Smallville High's school-paper The Torch, to study meteor rock mutants, and he later approaches meteor rock expert Dr. Steven Hamilton to investigate the meteor shower to determine if 'something else' came down that day. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Decent episode
14 September 2014 | by See all my reviews

This episode was OK. It didn't feature much towards the overall plot with Clark discovering who he's meant to be. It was more mutant-of- the-week centric. The mutant in this episode was pretty freaky as it was a girl who couldn't lose weight so she starts drinking green shakes...of the meteor rocks from the soil in her greenhouse. She realizes that through that she becomes skinny but has to keep eating.

A side story they had was Lex wanting to fund research into the meteor rocks to find out if anything else besides the meteors came down 12 years ago. He is getting closer to Clark's secret bit by bit. Love Lex's story.

I like the Lana/Clark relationship. He is really trying to get in Lana's favor. He missed her birthday party but he got her a present that she deeply wanted. He really listens to Lana and wants to make her happy. He is really Superman.
