Goodness, I found this to be a terrific examination of what makes Clark Kent "super" and it's not just his extra-ordinary powers, but the core of his being which dictates his moral compass. This is, of course, the examination of "with great power comes great responsibility". When a freakish lightning strike coupled with kryptonite transfers Clark's powers to a nerdy schoolmate, Clark finally sees that it's not the powers that defines him, but he who defines his powers. The Kents did a great job in instilling the values that help him become the Superman that will be one day. This episode served to fix many of Clark's problems, mainly getting Lex off the hunt for Clark's secret. It also allowed him to be a normal guy for a day or two. While fleeting, I'm sure it helps him understand how normal mortals live their lives and the difficulties they endure being such "normal" people. Without a moral compass, Eric (the boy who got Clark's powers) was out of control, and having such a bad parental relationship was the crux of the matter for having no control or forethought to his actions. Amazing how quick a town can turn on a "Superboy" after seeing the capacity to do not only good, but so much destruction as well. FYI, the actor playing Eric was Bobby Drake (Iceman) in the X-Men film from a couple of years ago. Damn if Clark didn't look sad when he realized that he and Lana will probably never be now that he has his powers back. I find it humorous when they trade what amounts to be fortune cookie proverbs (this week it was "you have to let go to move forward.") Also loved the Lex switcheroo number he did on Victoria and her father. Gotta love hostile takeover bids.
