The CW has released a description of "Reunion," the Thursday, Oct. 26 episode of Smallville

Here's how the network describes the episode:

"As teenagers, Lex (Michael Rosenbaum) and Oliver (Justin Hartley) went to the same prep school, where Oliver and his friends bullied Lex and his friend Duncan (guest star Bryce Hodgson). Lex eventually turned on Duncan to gain their acceptance, prompting Duncan to throw himself off the roof. Lex and Oliver return to the school for a reunion and are startled when Oliver's old pals are killed in violent and mysterious accidents that point to Duncan. Meanwhile, Clark sees satellite photos that show four other craters were created the day he escaped from the Phantom Zone, causing him to believe that others may have followed him."

"Reunion" was written by Steven DeKnight and directed by Jeannot Szwarc.

NBC has given a full-season order for 2006-07 to Heroes, the Monday night series that is the No. 1 new show in ratings for adults 18-49.

"Heroes has delivered exceptional ratings since its premiere and we're even more impressed with the quality of the upcoming episodes," said Kevin Reilly, president, NBC Entertainment.

"We have complete confidence in creator-executive producer Tim Kring. The best is yet to come over the course of a full season with this newest drama sensation."

Heroes is averaging a 5.7 rating, 14 share in adults 18-49 and 13.5 million viewers overall, making it the #1 new series this Fall in adults 18-49, tied with ABC's Brothers & Sisters.

Heroes is the No. 1 show in its competitive Monday 9-10 p.m. (ET) slot in adults 18-49, generating a 43 percent increase on NBC's non-sports average for the time period last season.


Top Cow is launching Freshmen II: Fundamentals of Fear in November. The mini-series follows up last year's mini-series created by actor Seth Green and writer Hugh Sterbakov.

"Freshmen II is going to be much darker and scarier as well, as we see our heroes battle their new, more powerful foes and their own greatest fears," Green said. "There will be epic battles, both physically and emotionally."

Green and Sterbakov are joined for the second series by artist Will Conrad and colorist Blond.

"Freshmen II is going to focus on some of the characters who were left in the background of the first series," Sterbakov said. "Minor players such as The Green Thumb and the Drama Twins will take the spotlight, while new storylines for Annalee, Liam and Norrin in particular will push these kids toward their darkening destiny.

"This series is going to show the ramifications of kids putting their lives on the line as superheroes as they confront a new villain in Mr. Fiddlesticks, a character from a series of children's books. We'll also be picking up some threads from the first series, like Annalee's father's machinations, and that mysterious hole in the wall of the dorm the morning after the Ax-Cell-Erator exploded."
