In 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. 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. Also, Lana Lang finds an old picture of her mother with an apparent boyfriend. After not getting help from Aunt Nelle, Lana then asks Lex to help her investigate. Written by

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.
