The WB has released an image from "Shattered," the Wednesday, Nov. 15 episode of Smallville.
Here's how The WB describes the episode:
"Lex (Michael Rosenbaum) locates Morgan Edge (Patrick Bergin) and gets him to admit to dirty dealings with Lionel (John Glover), but before Lex can take it to the authorities, someone tries to kill him at the mansion. Barely surviving, Lex flees and asks Clark (Tom Welling) for help. However, when Clark returns to the mansion to investigate he finds nothing amiss, and begins to wonder if it really happened, especially after Lionel announces Lex has had a psychotic break and must be institutionalized."
The episode was written and directed by Ken Biller.
The WB has released five images from "Lineage," the Wednesday, Nov. 12 episode of Angel.
Here's how the network describes the episode:

Meanwhile, Wesley (Alexis Denisof) is surprised by the unannounced arrival of his estranged father (guest star Roy Dotrice) who has come to evaluate Wesley for possible reacceptance to the Watcher's Council."

JUSTICE LEAGUE UPDATE
Cartoon Network has released an expanded description of "Comfort and Joy," the holiday-themed episode of Justice League scheduled to premiere on Saturday, Dec. 13 at 10 p.m.
Here's how the episode is described:
"The Justice League, comprised of the worldıs finest superheroes, rushes to complete one last mission to save two planets from colliding before each embarks on a week's vacation to enjoy the Christmas holidays.
"Flash pays his traditional visit to the Central City Orphanage as 'that jolly man in the red suit' to bring a special present to the resident kids. Green Lantern decides to show Hawkgirl his favorite childhood games and activities that involve snow, which results in a spectacular snowball fight. Superman, heading home to spend Christmas with his Earthly parents, the Kents, and await Santa's arrival, decides to bring along a depressed Martian Manhunter, who doesn't understand why everyone finds the season so magical. (Batman and Wonder Woman volunteer to serve world monitor duty at the Leagueıs Watchtower headquarters.)
"Little does each hero suspect that major surprises await them all.
"When Flash is asked to produce the hottest toy of the season, a DJ Rubber Ducky, he is forced to search the world for it. With the doll at last in Flash's possession, arch-villain Ultra-Humanite appears and nearly destroys it. Through an amazing act of goodwill and compromise, Flash and Ultra-Humanite actually join forces to repair the toy and deliver it the anxious kids before resuming their adversarial relationship.
"Hawkgirl reciprocates Green Lanternıs holiday 'gift' by showing him the place and unique way she prefers to celebrateresulting in mayhem. One last surprise awaits them both: a secret romance.
And Superman's family embraces Martian Manhunter warmly, leaving him the freedom to explore the peace and joy of Christmas Eve on his own. His unexpected experiences that night lead him to compose his own song of joy which he shares with the Kent family.
"Comfort and Joy" was written by Paul Dini.
Following Justice League is the holiday-themed "Holiday Knights" episode of Batman, which was also written by Dini.
