Parasite was creepy, which is why I'd welcome him back - I personally think the show should do a few FOTW episodes each year to just have some fun and show us what Clark can do ONSCREEN. Cause I hate that 99% of the RBB's career has happened offscreen so we really can't see what legacy Clark is forging. Anyways, Parasite is a great villain in Superman canon. His abilities changed significantly over time but in the usual version, he sucks humans clean of their life force. With metas, he absorbs the powers for only a fairly limited period of time and has to go back for another dose.

I've enjoyed a lot of the FotW episodes over the years, and I would love to see Clark in action as the RBB more. Not every episode needs to be steeped in whatever the current mytharc is. I'd also like to see more episodes of Clark investigating stories for the DP, and then dealing with whatever he uncovers. That's what I liked about all three of the episodes that Bryan Q. Miller wrote this season. Committed and Hex had Clark investigating with Lois and Chloe, respectively, and Bulletproof had him going undercover on his own. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing him in action.

Parasite sounds even more sinister in the comic book version, and his name makes perfect sense given what you've described. And I could easily see that actor taking him to the next level.
