Along the dispute of an election of the president in Smallville High School, candidate Paul Chan is severely injured by a swarm of bees. Pete decides to promote Clark Kent as the substituted for the spot. When the other aspirant schoolmate, Felice Chandler, is also attacked by bees, Clark believes that last competitor, Sasha Woodman, who has the meteor-rock ability to control bees, is behind the attacks. Meanwhile, Lex Luthor is threatened by an opportunist and ambitious reporter from Metropolis, named Carrie Castle, over some dark secrets of his that she's investigating. Also, The Talon, the thematic coffee shop where Lana works is completely empty, losing clients to the competition and with the threat of closing the doors which makes Clark turn to Lex to ask for help to keep it open for Lana's sake.
