Storyline

At Smallville High School, a swimmer mysteriously ages and dies after meeting his girlfriend Chrissy Parker. The new principal Reynolds arrives and comes into conflict with Clark Kent because he is a friend of Lex Luthor's. Clark asks Chloe and Pete to investigate Principal Reynolds' history, as well as Chrissy whom they suspect is a life-draining freak who needs three youths to stay eternally young every 12 years. Meanwhile, the Kents are having financial problems and Martha contacts her estranged father, whom she hasn't seen for twenty years, to borrow some money, much to Jonathan's disapproval. Lana Lang also finds an old picture of her mother with an apparent boyfriend. After not getting any help from Aunt Nelle, Lana then asks Lex to help her investigate.

Trivia

The episode "Redux" was filmed after the first season finale, "Tempest", but aired later in season two. Some lines were dubbed in indicating its placement later in season two (such as Lana discussing Clark's secretiveness and Martha working for Lionel Luthor) though those episodes had yet to be filmed.

Goofs

It's revealed that Chrissy has been sucking the youthfulness out of her victims since the 1920s, but all of the other "villains" thus far were made that way through some kind of contact with the meteor rocks. Of course, the meteor shower only happened 12 years prior to this episode. No explanation is given for Chrissy's rapid aging nor her youth-sucking powers. See more »

Quotes

Lana Lang: I was wondering if you could do me a favor.
Lex Luthor: I take it Nell couldn't identify the mystery man?
Lana Lang: If she could, she wouldn't tell me anything. I just... I want to know who it is.
Lex Luthor: Well, that shouldn't be hard to find. But coming to terms with it could prove to be more complicated.
Lana Lang: What do you mean?
Lex Luthor: Come on, you know the story of Pandora. She was given a box by Zeus and warned never to open it. She couldn't resist the temptation.
Lana Lang: I'm not afraid of the truth, Lex.
Lex Luthor: Neither was Pandora. But once the box...

In Smallville High School, a swimmer mysteriously ages and dies, after meeting his girlfriend Chrissy Parker (Maggie Lawson). The new principal Reynolds (Richard Gant) arrives and conflicts with Clark Kent because he is friend of Lex Luthor. The Kent family is having financial problems and Martha contacts her father, who has been away from the family for twenty years, to borrow some money. Lana Lang finds an old picture of her mother with an apparent boyfriend and asks Lex to investigate.

"Redux" is an episode with many situations, some of them resolved, but others left open. There are new characters, such as Principal Reynolds and Clark's grandparent, and the stories are very good. My vote is nine.
