Synopsis: Two more victims of that fateful meteor shower are revealed. Both businessmen, both empowered with meteor-rock-induced persuasion. Kyle Tippet hides his ability in the woods of Smallville while Bob Rickman abuses it to form a powerful corporation. Clark enlists the aid of Kyle and Lex to keep Rickman from uses his powers to take the Kent family farm. Parallels and references are made throughout this episode concerning Clark's powers and how to deal with them as well as the relationship between Clark and Lex. These parallels and references raise some interesting questions: was Lex under Rickman's power of persuasion or did he attempt to kill Clark on his own, did Lex take this opportunity to test Clark's abilities after possibly seeing Clark's abilities firsthand in 'Shimmer', and if Lex was under Rickman's power of persuasion and, as Tippet explained, the 'spell' is only broken when the task (kill Clark) is done then wouldn't this contribute to Lex's archenemy turn on Clark? Another hilarious Superman reference: 'I'm not sure, [Clark talking about what he wants to do when he grows up] as long as it doesn't involve flying and wearing a suit.' Also Kyle persuades Chloe to kiss Clark to prove his ability, making Lana jealous.
