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.

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
I found the source of Pete's powers. Kryptonite-enhanced gum. I found a whole stockpile.
Chewing gum? Is nothing sacred anymore?
I destroyed it, but we have to find Pete. His attitude has changed.
Ah, so you got a whiff of Pete "The Boss" Ross too, huh?
If he ingests any more kryptonite, we both know what happens to people.
