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

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.
