Also: Clark is made starting quarterback, a promotion that doesn't sit well with his new teammates; and Lex donates new uniforms to the team, but Clark is put off by the gesture, which he takes as an attempt to buy back his friendship.
After a boy with superhuman speed saves Jonathan---and steals his wallet---Clark tracks him down and discovers he's a homeless kid who uses his powers to commit petty crimes.

Clark switches bodies with Lionel after Clark interferes with the exchange of a Kryptonian stone that was meant for an unsuspecting Lex. Consequently, Clark takes Lionel's place in prison, while Lionel takes advantage of his newfound freedom---and superhuman abilities.
Clark accidentally injures another player when foreign-exchange student Mikail Mxyzptlk uses a form of telepathy to make him trip during a big game. As a result, Jonathan wants Clark to quit the team before he hurts anyone else, and Jason suspects Clark is using steroids.
Lana, Lois and Chloe are possessed by the spirits of witches who were burned at the stake in the 17th century.

Making matters worse, a Princeton recruiter visits Clark the night of the party.

The town's residents are infected by a toxin that causes unconsciousness and horrific nightmares when the LuthorCorp plant loses control of the dangerous substance. Meanwhile, Lionel's conviction is overturned, but he feels he deserves to stay in prison.
A teen with teleportation abilities who was obsessed with Clark is released from the Belle Reve asylum and tracks him down.

Clark takes in a dog with superpowers after Lois accidentally hits the pooch with her car. While looking for its owner, he discovers the dog was part of a LuthorCorp experiment and was being used to commit crimes. Elsewhere, Genevieve is revealed to be the person who helped free Lionel from prison.
The day after Dr. Swann dies, Clark receives a note from the professor leading him to a message from Jor-El that instructs him to find two sacred stones. Meanwhile, Jason and Lex are in China on a related mission; and Lana learns that the witch Isobel has been trying to find the stones by using her as a vessel.
Lois's younger sister, Lucy, arrives in town, and Clark learns that she has a shady past when he catches her stealing money from the Talon's register. Also, the ancient stone is taken from Lana's apartment, and Jason suspects Lionel.
A kryptonite-based explosion at the Luthorcorp lab creates an evil clone of Lex, and the sinister twin tries to prevent the process from being reversed by taking drastic measures, which include imprisoning Lex in the basement of his own mansion.
On the night before the prom, a popular student crashes her car into a kryptonite-filled ravine and her spirit ends up taking over other people's bodies.

A teen who has the power to turn people into stone wants to stay in high school forever, so he keeps students captive in a fake school that's built to look like Smallville High. Elsewhere, Genevieve and Jason threaten to kill Lex if Lionel doesn't give up the sacred stone.
