Synopsis by Hal Erickson
In the conclusion of Smallville's two-part season-three opener, Jonathan Kent (John Schneider) has tracked down his adopted son, Clark (Tom Welling), to Metropolis, where, under the influence of the dread red kryptonite, the rebellious Clark has fallen in with criminal boss Morgan Edge (Rutger Hauer). Facing down Clark at LutherCorp, where the boy has been instructed by Edge to steal a valuable package, Jonathan -- temporarily possessing superpowers matching those of his adopted son -- squares off for a titanic battle. But though the struggle ultimately frees Clark from the spell of the red kryptonite, he stills faces peril at the hands of the vengeful Edge. Meanwhile, Lex Luthor (Michael Rosenbaum) confronts the people he holds responsible for the plane crash that nearly killed him at the end of Smallville's second season.
