Storyline

Pete Ross returns to Smallville and finds a number of surprising changes since his departure four years earlier. Besides resolving his feelings toward Clark since he learned of his friend's secret, Pete has to deal with the acquisition of a superpower of his own: that of his ability to 'stretch' his body courtesy of kryptonite-laced gum he's been chewing and consuming for nearly a year. Meanwhile, Lex continues to sow seeds of anxiety into the amnesiac and powerless Kara over Clark as well as wanting to know about her past, as does Jimmy Olsen. Written by matt-282

Trivia

Lex notes that the first meteor shower was on October 7, 1989. However, Chloe Sullivan says in the Chloe Chronicles that it was on October 16, which corresponds to the air date of the Pilot. See more »

Goofs

When Jimmy is eavesdropping on Pete's conversation with Lex at the Daily Planet, he appears surprised, if not alarmed, at the revelation that Chloe is a meteor freak. But she revealed that secret to him four episodes earlier, in "Smallville: Gemini", and even used her ability to heal a cut on his finger. See more »

Decent story, with disappointing results
14 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was SO excited about Pete coming back, I really expected this episode to be much better than it was.

Instead, it was a story that seemed to have been originally written for a one-off character (perhaps another DC comics alumnus; won't say which one, that would be too much of a spoiler), but altered slightly to allow Pete's return; then altered a lot to make sure that the entire episode revolved around GUM!

I don't mind that there were product placements, they've done that before and it didn't distract from the story much (maybe you roll your eyes for a couple seconds, but this time they were riffing off of the company's slogans).

All in all, this episode had so much potential, completely WASTED. Sam Jones left the show because his character was being wasted; I guess we can say good bye to Pete for good.
