The CW's Official Description:

Written by Michael Green
Directed by Jim Contner

On the shore of a frozen-over, Kryptonite-infested lake outside Smallville, a high school party is in full swing. Sean Kelvin, a womanizing football player, hits on Chloe and convinces her to give him his phone number. After, Clark tells Chloe to avoid Sean: "He's a dog." Meanwhile, Sean has ventured out onto the icy surface of the lake after an errant football. Suddenly, the ice cracks and Sean plunges into the freezing water below. He struggles, but eventually sinks into the glowing green depths. The next morning, a fist punches through the ice. Sean, skin blue with cold, stumbles through the remnants of the previous night's party toward a weakly burning bonfire. He reaches out his shivering hand and literally sucks the heat out of the fire.

On the Kent farm, Clark demonstrates his superhuman mathematics abilities helping his parents work on the farm's finances. Sadly, the farm is in trouble. At school, Sean visits the nurse's office. He's can't get warm. As the nurse takes Sean's temperature (it's an inhuman 32 degrees), Sean touches her hand, absorbing some of her warmth. Sean is instantly rejuvenated. Meanwhile, Lex pays a visit to Martha and invites her and Jonathan to his home for a business discussion regarding the difficulties facing local farmers. That afternoon at the Beanery, Lex observes Whitney back out on a trip to Metropolis with Lana. Lex then offers Clark two tickets to a Radiohead concert and the use of his limo if Clark will ask Lana out. Clark gathers his courage and does so. Lana agrees, "just as friends." Back at school, Sean, feeling cold again, approaches Chloe. When she plays hard to get, Sean instantly moves on to his ex-girlfriend Jenna and Chloe's feelings are hurt. That night, Jenna is in the shower, waiting for Sean. Suddenly, Sean pulls aside the curtain. He is completely blue with cold. Jenna panics and tries get away, but Sean has her cornered. "I just want to get warm," he says. Sean moves in for a kiss and sucks Jenna's heat. As he pulls back we see that Jenna is frozen solid. Sean releases her and she crashes to the floor, shattering into a thousand pieces.

At the Kent Farm, Martha tells Jonathan about Lex's invitation. Jonathan doesn't want to go - he still can't trust the Luthors - but Martha tells him she already told Lex they'd be there. Clark arrives and happily tells them about his not-a-date with Lana. Meanwhile, Sean's heat fix has worn off. He's calling former girlfriends, all of whom want nothing to do with him, when he notices Chloe's phone number still written on his hand. At the same time, Chloe is helping Clark pick out an outfit for his non-date, when her cell phone rings. It's Sean; he wants to meet her for coffee at the Torch office. Chloe agrees. Later, Clark and Lana are in the limo on their way to the concert and share a moment. Lana then turns on the TV and they see a news report about Jenna's death. Remembering Chloe was going to meet Sean that night, Clark has the limo stop at the Beanery. He asks Lana to wait for him and then rushes off. Meanwhile, Chloe is working at the Torch when she discovers a trail of rose petals leading to the swimming pool. When she's inside, Sean, skin icy blue again, locks the door behind her. Seeing Sean' appearance, Chloe is terrified, but in her hurry to escape she falls into the pool. As she swims to the other side, Sean plunges his hand into the water, drawing the heat out of it and turning it into ice. The ice reaches Chloe just as she is climbing out, trapping her foot in the pool. As she struggles to break free, Clark smashes open the door, rescues Chloe, and hurls Sean to the side.

Back at the Torch, Clark and Chloe discuss what happened when Clark suddenly remembers he left Lana at the Beanery. At the Beanery, Whitney arrives, surprised to see Lana. Disappointed that Clark never came back, Lana asks Whitney to take her home. Clark arrives, just missing her. Meanwhile, Sean is at a power sub-station drawing much-needed heat from the exposed power lines. At Luthor Mansion, Lex unveils his plan to Jonathan and Martha. He offers his services as an investor as an alternative to a high-interest bank loan. Attractive as it is, Jonathan is wary of Lex's offer. At the same time, Whitney is driving Lana home, asking her what she was doing out with Clark, when Sean suddenly appears on the road in front of them. Whitney swerves out of the way and his truck crashes into a ravine. Lana's ankle is injured. They head toward some lights in the distance. As Lex is wrapping up his pitch at Luthor Mansion, Whitney and Lana arrive. Meanwhile, Clark arrives at the scene of the accident and is grabbed by Sean. Sean is surprised by the level of heat he draws from Clark. Fully invigorated, Sean heads toward Luthor Mansion, leaving Clark frozen on the road.

At Luthor Mansion, the power goes out when Sean sucks heat from the generator. Jonathan and Martha go out to investigate. Meanwhile, Clark wakes up and heads for the mansion. As Martha works on the generator, Sean approaches her. He's about to grab her when Clark arrives and punches Sean, sending him flying. When Clark goes to look for him, Sean is gone. Suddenly, Sean grabs Clark from behind and begins sucking Clark's heat. Clark grabs Sean and hurls him into a nearby pond. Sean, unable to control his power, sucks the heat from the water around him, encasing himself in ice. The next day, Lex arrives at the Kent's barn to talk to Jonathan. It seems that Jonathan took out a bank loan. "At least with them, I know where I stand," says Jonathan. At school, Lana and Clark talk about their failed not-a-date. Clark asks her out again, but she's going to be out with Whitney. Clark asks her why she's with Whitney. "Because whenever I need him, he's there."

Detailed Description:

By Nadine

Freak of the Week: One of Smallville High's jocks, Sean Kelvin (Michael Coristine) falls through the ice of a frozen lake that has Kryptonite rocks at the bottom. Although his body is completely frozen, he mysteriously survives. He finds a fire still burning from the party and sucks the heat out of it. While visiting the nurse at school and finding his temperature is an unnatural 32 degrees, he touches the hand of the nurse, and absorbs her warmth and immediately feels better. He realizes that he needs to soak up other peoples' heat in order to survive.
Meanwhile, Lex Luthor (Michael Rosenbaum) has offered Clark Kent (Tom Welling) two tickets to the Radiohead concert and the use of his limo if Clark agrees to ask Lana Lang (Kristin Kreuk) out on a date.
Lex also finds out that the Kent farm is experiencing financial difficulties. He invites Martha (Annette O'Toole) and Jonathan Kent (John Schneider) to his mansion to discuss a loan that would be more beneficial to them than a bank loan. As always, Jonathan is weary of the Luthors, but Martha encourages him to listen.
He goes on a rampage and attempts to get close to all the girls he has dated and flirted with. When Chloe Sullivan (Allison Mack) resists, he moves on to the next girl, Jenna. As he kisses her, he realizes he has the power to suck out all the heat in her body. She dies frozen, falls to the floor and shatters in a million pieces. Sean is running out of dates, and tries calling Chloe again, this time she agrees to meet him for coffee. When Clark hears the news of Jenna's death, he gets worried for Chloe, runs out on his date with Lana, and arrives just in time to save her from being frozen.
Desperate for his "fix", Sean finds the required heat in exposed power lines. As Whitney Fordman (Eric Johnson) drives Lana back from her failed date, angry that she would be out with Clark, Sean appears in the middle of the road, and Whitney swerves his truck off the road. Lana is injured and Whitney helps her walk to the closest house, the Luthor manor where the Kents are having dinner with Lex. Sean goes to follow them, but Clark attempts to stop him. Sean absorbs a huge amount of heat out of Clark and leaves him frozen by the roadside.
Reaching the Luthor mansion, he sucks the heat out of the generator, causing the power to go out. Martha is working on the generator, and Sean is about to grab her, when a revitalized Clark appears. Clark and Sean fight, and Sean falls into a pond, sucking the heat out of the pond and locking himself into a block of ice.

Character Development: Lex's offer to the Kents was a fair one, but Jonathan was too weary of the Luthors and decides to take a bank loan out instead, even if proves to be less financially viable.
When Lana had agreed to go to the concert with Clark, she had made it a point to confirm that they were going "just as friends". Later, Clark asks her out again, but she confirms she is happy with Whitney, because he is reliable and always there for her.

Notes

In-joke: note Sean's last name, and the nature of his powers.

More in-jokes: When Lex approaches Martha Kent at her farm and she almost cuts him with a chainsaw, he comments apropro of nothing, "Good thing you didn't have an arc welder." In the TV show The Adventures of Lois & Clark, Martha Kent was an artist who used an arc welder to make metal sculptures.

Even more in-jokes: Chloe comments she doesn't want to be a crash test dummy for the guys' dating lives. The band Crash Test Dummies put out a hit single about Superman.

Originally advertised as "Freeze"

When Chloe and Clark are going through Clark's clothes, she tells him "blue's a good color on you." Reference to his costume to come?

If Sean escaped from an frozen lake once, couldn't he escape from the one that Clark trapped him in?

So...what happens to Sean? Is he still frozen in the middle of the lake near the Luthor mansion, or did the police or someone eventually show up, chip him out, and haul him off to the Asylum for Kryptomutants?

When Clark instantly figures out the family bills (see Quotes), the implication is that he has some kind of super-calculating mental ability - this has never been referred to before or since.
When Whitney is driving Lana home, and they swerve to avoid Sean in the middle of the road, the dubbing of Lana saying "Whitney-look out!" doesn't match up with her lip movement.
