OK, Smallvillagers, get ready to fly into a frenzy! On Friday, October 15, the series celebrates its 200th episode, but you can get the party started with this exclusive peek at the official promo for "Homecoming" right here and now.
Built around Clark's high-school reunion and featuring the return of James Marsters as a much-less nasty Brianiac, "there are all kinds of nods that go back to the beginning... a lot of glimpses," promises exec producer Kelly Souders, who has also packed in a lot of geeked-out goodies (check out those magazine covers!). And just wait until you see what happens when Clark pays a trip to his future... and runs into himself at the most "Man of Steel" moment the show has thrown at us so far.
A second version of this trailer will appear at the end of tonight's "Supergirl" episode on the CW at 8/7c.

Jim Belushi, Jerry O'Connell
TV Guide Magazine wants to hear from you! We're celebrating the hottest moments in TV this fall, and we want to know your favorite TV bromance! Are you a fan of the wisecracking Jerry O'Connell and Jim Belushi on The Defenders, or do you celebrate your inner nerd with Kunal Nayyar and Simon Helberg from The Big Bang Theory? Or has the relationship between Terriers' Donal Logue and Michael Raymond James taken a bite out of your Wednesday night? Let us know in our poll after the jump...
Joe Mantegna and Daniel J. Travanti, Criminal Minds
Criminal Minds' Behavioral Analysis Unit has an obligation to keep bad guys off the street. But series star Joe Mantegna says every case isn't just about right and wrong.

"Sometimes when a case gets resolved, there's always different aspects to consider. It's not always so cut-and-dried," he tells TVGuide.com "There are sometimes conditions that lend themselves to why these things happen. It's interesting when the stories have a little bit of a twist to them."
And Wednesday's episode (9/8c on CBS) has just that. When the BAU begins investigating a string of murders, Rossi (Mantegna) can't help but notice a similarity to a killer he chased over 25 years ago. Just when Rossi got close, the killer stopped, never to be heard from again — until now...
Sara Ramirez (Grey's Anatomy), Jessalyn Gilsig (Glee), David Caruso (CSI: Miami)
Every week, senior editors Mickey O'Connor and Adam Bryant satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to email@example.com.
Any scoop about Callie and Arizona on Grey's Anatomy? — Marija
ADAM: When the Chief offers $1 million to the department of the hospital that best demonstrates need, Callie's and Arizona's feelings for one another do not put a damper on their competitive spirit. "Callie turns into a very competitive person and actually starts running around trying to intimidate everyone," Sara Ramirez says. "[She] does this hilarious passive-aggressive thing that was fun to play. She's trying to psych everybody out."
I was surprised to see Terri on Glee. She's been MIA for so long ... yet she's a series regular (or at least recurring)? Why is Mike Chang not a regular? He appears on the show more than Terri does! — Christine
MICKEY: These designations are complicated and take into account the plan for the entire season. So while Mike's fling with Tina is at the fore now, I'm hearing that Terri will play a much larger role in later episodes. As she made clear in the Britney episode, she's not giving up on Will, and her presence will be similarly menacing when she returns...
Drug dealer Nancy Botwin (Mary-Louise Parker) sure blew her chance at Mother of the Year on Weeds this season. Her once sweet son Shane (Alexander Gould) has sprouted into a disturbed killer who can hold his own in a Mexican standoff. We asked the soft-spoken Gould, 16, about playing TV's youngest psycho killer....
Looks like The Event's supersecretive Sophia Maguire (Laura Innes) — the leader of several longtime detainees of the U.S. government — has started opening up about her group's top-secret origins. Why now? She has faith in U.S. president Elias Martinez (Blair Underwood)...
Tim Roth, Lie to Me
When Lie to Me returns for its third season, Cal Lightman and his team of lie-detecting scientists will be freed from their ties to Ben Reynolds and the FBI.
But while the show's producers made that decision to allow Lightman (Tim Roth) to take on different kinds of cases, will the lack of checks and balances prove dangerous for the Lightman Group?
Lie to Me: End of the line for Lightman and Reynolds
"We are leaning into Lightman's general conflict with power and authority," executive producer Alexander Cary tells TVGuide.com. "In the first episode of Season 3, he goes too far. He sails extremely close to the wind...
David Caruso, CSI: Miami
CSI: Miami producer Barry O'Brien says he isn't worried one bit about the show's move to Sunday night.
"We're answering the call with essentially a relaunch of our entire series in every category," O'Brien tells TVGuide.com. "It's rarefied air that you breathe when you've been on the air for nine seasons. It's an amazing achievement, and we want to respond with appropriate gratitude and a sense of growth, both in terms of the characters and stylistically."
Fall TV: Get scoop on your favorite returning shows
O'Brien's energy and excitement is evident as he starts discussing storylines for this season. The CSIs will investigate a crime with a literally disappearing murder weapon. One murder will be "witnessed" by a blind bystander. But the story O'Brien is most eager to tell is that of a massive prison break, which will provide headaches for crime lab leader Horatio Caine (David Caruso), who will try to corral the fugitives all season long...
Michael C. Hall and Shawn Hatosy, Dexter
Southland star Shawn Hatosy says he was thrilled to play a villain on Season 5 of Dexter after "playing three or four cops in a row."

"I was dying to do it," Hatosy tells TVGuide.com "I enjoy doing all that [cop work], but to kind of stretch the muscles a little bit and step outside that world was exciting.
"It's so surreal," he continues. "When you think about what it is that [the Dexter crew does] daily, with the blood and strapping people to tables, it's just a unique type of employment."
Hatosy, who first appears in Sunday's episode (9/8c on Showtime), plays Boyd Fowler, a sanitation worker responsible for dead animal control...
