The Kent family offers to lodge Ryan in their farm while waiting for the social services. The boy becomes friends with Clark Kent and his friends, and has the power of reading minds, and his adopted parents use him to commit robberies.

Trivia

Clark obviously kills Ryan's stepdad by lunging the bowling ball into his chest though he shows no remorse nor is the fact that he took a life mentioned at all. This goes against Superman's philosophy and Clark's own feelings so it makes little to no sense that this wouldn't be touched upon by him or his parents. See more »

Goofs

When Ryan and Clark are playing basketball you can see a tractor near the guys. After some shots then the tractor moves for no apparent reason left and right about 1-2 meters. See more »

Quotes

Clark Kent: So you recovered yet?
Ryan James: I don't know. But I'm definitely in love.
Clark Kent: [looks at Lana] Join the club.

Reading Minds
2 April 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

While escaping from his mean stepparents James Gibson (Jim Shield) and Sky (Courtney Kramer), the boy Ryan James (Ryan Kelley) is hit by Martha Kent's car in a road. She brings Ryan to a hospital, and the boy claims to have amnesia. The Kent's family offers to lodge Ryan in their farm while waiting for the social service. The boy becomes friend of Clark Kent and his friends, and has the power of reading minds. Clark helps the boy against his stepfather.

"Stray" is a good episode, but there are some flaws along the story. For example, when Clark opens the garbage truck, we do not see the consequences. What happened to James Gibson? But I like the character of Clark Kent, and I believe that his solid personality and principles are one of the greatest attraction of this series. Lex Luthor is also excellent, as usual. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "Perdido" ("Lost")
