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

Chrissy's powers are never mentioned as being due to the meteor rocks which makes sense due to her displaying her ability far before the showers. However, it isn't that far fetched that she would have strange abilities given the show takes place in the DC universe which features many superpowered individuals. See more
Lana assumes that since the dates on the photos of her mother and the other man are after her parents were married, that there must be something suspicious about the couple. Dates on the backs of photos merely show when the photos were developed. They could have been taken years before. See more
I knew Martha was making the biggest mistake of her life when she married you.
That's not true, granddad.
You're gonna have to swallow your pride if you're gonna save this farm, Jonathan.
I don't need a lecture from you on how to take care of my family, thank you.
You're just as stubborn and pig-headed as you were the day I met you.
