Craig and his lying old "I'm in a wheelchair" self showed up at Sam's grave on her birthday. Will shows up as well, and they are confronted by some kid who is glad that Sam's dead. After they awkwardly segue back to 1993, we find out that a pill-popping Sam had thought she caused his mother’s death. But we can all rest — she's a good doctor. You know how I pretty much go on and on about Sam and Will's chemistry? Well, I always feel justified every time I see scenes between Alexa Davalos and Will Estes.

Those teen ne'er-do-wells on The O.C. have a new neighbor this season, and one that is different in so many ways. Fox's Reunion, premiering tonight at 9 pm/ET, spins a murder mystery involving six friends and told in flashbacks encompassing one year per episode, inching forward each week as it gradually revealing not just whodunit, but who was done in.

Do you have any ideas how they will be able to do a second season if it becomes a hit? Will they have a whole new story line and cast? I hope not, especially since I love Sean Faris and Will Estes.
Answer: First things first. Reunion is airing Thursdays at 9 pm/ET against a few monster hits, and its likelihood of surviving the first season is problematic at best. That said, I liked the concept as well, and when Fox presents its new programming next week at the end of the critics' summer press tour, I imagine that very question will come up. At the moment, I'm not even all that sure how this freshman season will play out, let alone the sophomore one ...
