A solar storm provokes uncontrollable changes in Clark's abilities making him use his powers in rash fashion. While running down a road at super-speed to meet Pete and Lana at The Talon, Clark suddenly stops on the road to avoid hitting a passing car, and the drunken driver, journalist Perry White, crashes into a pole trying to avoid him. Perry White (Clark's future boss and editor of the Daily Planet) is an alcoholic ex-reporter from the Daily Planet, now a freelancer working for the tabloid TV show 'X-Styles', whom he blames Lionel Luther for his career downfall. Perry blackmails the Kents by threatening to sue them for his car accident, and gets Clark to transport him around Smallville for a couple of days because Perry is in town writing an article about the 1989 meteor shower and starts to suspect Clark's abilities. Meanwhile, the upset Lex has a psychoanalysis evaluation on him due to imposition of the insurance company to Luthor Corp. Written by

In the beginning of the episode, Clark leaves for the Talon to meet with Pete. He is offered a ride by his mother, but says he'll run there instead. As he closes the door behind him, we hear the sound of him taking off in super-speed, but we can still see him through the glass in the door moving down the stairs in normal speed. See more
