Storyline

Clark and a classmate, named Eric Summer, are both struck by lightning when Eric is holding a piece of meteor rock. The electrical surge takes Clark's powers away and transfers them to Eric. As Eric gets used to his new powers, Clark has to deal with being a normal person for the first time, with all the advantages and disadvantages. But Eric's abusive and domineering father wants to have him examined in Metropolis for his strange powers and in response, the mentally unbalanced Eric goes on a rampage. Meanwhile, Sir Harry Hardwick, Victoria's father, and rival of Lionel Luthor, try to recruit Lex for their business in Metropolis and almost succeed in buying out Luthor Corp. But Lex turns the tables against them. Reporter Roger Nixon continues to investigate Lex's car accident and begins to close in on Clark's secret. Also, Lana becomes more distant when Aunt Nell announces her plans to sell her florist shop. Written by Anonymous

What happens when Clark loses his powers?
3 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Pretty interesting episode. It tells what would happen to anyone else who gets control of Clark's powers, which happens. A kid from Clark's class Eric Summers gets Clark's abilities by a lightening strike and Clark becomes normal. But is it something Clark really wants?

Clark can play basketball without worries and can now be around Lana. But he is still compelled to save people. Eric is starting to become a hero to people as he does various things around Smallville, but then he starts to lose control. Eventually Clark has to step in and even though he's human, he gets his powers back.

Lex is still investigating Clark until he recognizes that Clark is just human. How long will it be before he just quits? That will be the downfall of their friendship.
