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. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Goofs

Earlier in the season Clark tells Pete about his secret, however during the final scene with Chrissy, Clark hesitates using his powers around Pete and then distracts him by telling him to lock the doors in order to speed-run to confront Chrissy. This error is due to the episode originally being filmed for to air earlier in the season. 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...

Old Rivalries and an Artificial Youth
17 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The greatest appeal of this episode is the expansion of Clark's earthly family- and the revelation that not everybody is a fan of beloved Jonathan Kent.

Neither is everybody a fan of a girl who drains life from others to keep herself youthful.

These are the stories concerning the 27th episode of the 'Smallville' series. A young woman named Chrissy mysteriously causes her boyfriend to dramatically age to death in a matter of seconds. Clark and Lana catch on to the secret behind this traumatic event, and stop Chrissy from hurting others in her youth quest. In addition, Clark's grandpa comes to town- Martha's dad. However, he and Jonathan have never been huge fans of each other. Also, Lana discovers photos of a man who she has never seen before nor heard of with her deceased mother.

Additionally, the most interesting aspects of this episode are the expanded family ties seen individually in main characters Clark and Lana's lives.
