So tune in and let us know what you think of how the finale season will play out.
So far we don't have a confirmed on the airdate, but we do know that Metallo will be back on this season's 18th episode, which will air sometime in the Spring.
H.R.G. (Jack Coleman) hosts an untraditional Thanksgiving dinner. Elsewhere, the Petrelli family gets a surprise guest at their table. Meanwhile, Samuel (Robert Knepper) continues to hold Hiro (Masi Oka) hostage, as Lydia (guest star Dawn Olivieri) goes in search for the truth.
Ashley Crow, Jimmy Jean-Louis, Madeline Zima, Ray Park, Harry Perry, Elisabeth Rohm, Andrew Connolly also guest star.
But the news doesn't stop there, guess who is portraying Hawkman? None other than Stargate SG1's Michael Shanks. Go ahead and scream you Shanks fans, I know you want too! And yes that is Shanks in the photo. Anywho Dr. Fate will be played by Brent Stait, and Stargirl will be played by Britt Irvin. Also more Justice Society characters are expected to appear in the episodes.
Johns last season's "Legions" episode that featured members of DC Comics "Legion of Super-Heroes" is so far one of the best episodes ever of Smallville's 9 year run. John's script was heavy on the inside jokes and comic references, and all the actors did a fantastic job portraying some of DC's more obscure heroes.
So make sure to tune in as I am sure you won't be disappointed.
"Official word from Fox: 'We will air all 13 episodes and this gives Joss the opportunity to end in a significant way'," said Variety's Michael Schneider via Twitter.
I hate it for Joss Whedon but he should have had a more active role in the series than just slapping his name on it. And I really hate that it looks like Summer Glau is becoming a jinx to any TV series that she gets involved with. I like Summer, she has talent and is a icon to most of us SciFi fans.
Do we meet the alternate-universe versions of Walter (John Noble)? Olivia (Anna Torv)?
We've already seen alt-universe versions of Broyles (Lance Reddick) and Charlie (Kirk Acevedo), and we know Peter (Joshua Jackson) comes from the other side. But what about alt-Olivia or alt-Walter (or "Walternate," as Jackson calls him)?
"I have that question as well," Torv tells us. "I'm hoping that there is [an alt-Olivia]. But then I don't know … which I would prefer if she ends up coming. I don't know if I would prefer her to be just, like, fractionally off. … I would love to see … she's completely, you know, 180 [degrees different]. … My pitch would be, and I think that's what a lot of people are saying, too, … with the discovery of the fact that the Peter here is clearly not from here, then it makes sense that maybe the Walter over there is angry with the Walter here, and that's kind of the whole thing behind [the Pattern]. But I don't know. They do sometimes surprise. Sometimes they put these clues in and then they flip it on its head and you've been wrong all along. But that's where I'm going."
Jackson is convinced we will see the "Walternate." "In keeping with the mythology of Fringe, yes, there is a Walternate, and there would be … an alternate mother as well, because, you know, that dimension is so close to our own, that with only minor differences it is identical," he said.
Is the Walternate angry that his version of Peter was stolen, and is he really behind the Pattern events? Will he confront our Walter?
"He's going to be awfully angry," Noble says. "That's my summation. We've sort of hinted this, haven't we? We've had little hints of other Walters around the place, and you'll see that. My guess would be that there has to be a confrontation between the two men. That's not the writers again, this is just me projecting forward."
Will Peter discover that he's from the other side?
Jackson feels the answer is yes.
"The big [question] that gets raised is, when he finds out the truth about his origins, where do his loyalties lie?" Jackson said. "I truly am excited to play it either way. Maybe the decision's been made—they haven't told me—but I think it's just as interesting to have Peter freak out, have his moment outside the flock, and then come back and say, 'I forgive you, but this is where I belong.' And I also think it's quite interesting to have him freak out and say, 'No, burn it all down,' and have Peter actually become some version of the bad guy going into season three."
Will Olivia meet and confront the Observer?
Yes. "There's an episode coming up that is called 'August,' and it sort of deals with the Observer," Torv says. "It's a really, really beautiful, beautiful episode, actually, so I won't say anything more, but that's actually very soon. Yeah."
Will Walter confront his old partner, William Bell (Leonard Nimoy)?
Count on it.
"We've introduced William Bell as a major player now, and Leonard's been back a couple of times," Noble says, revealing: "I did a lovely scene with him the other day. A very interesting scene which I'm not going to tell you about, but it was amazing. What it revealed. The revelation in that was shocking. It was shocking to me when I read it."
Noble adds: "What we're dealing with is, we've been told that there's a breach, that there will have to be a repercussion for this breach. And so as we build through now, we're coming towards what they're calling a war. … [If you] break the laws of nature, you will pay. That's going to happen. So we'll build through season two up to that point. In the meantime, we'll continue to do stories that are interesting, and we've done some, I think some of our very, very best scripts. Last, this year, we've done some amazing [things]. Just what we've been shooting for the last five episodes is extraordinary."
He continued: "We said to Mark, 'Why don't you do a TV show that picks up where the movie leaves off and call it 2013?' I think it will focus on a group of people who survived but not on the boats … maybe they were on a piece of land that was spared or one that became an island in the process of the crust moving. There are so many possibilities of what they could do and I'd be excited to watch it."
Apparently Gordon has already started talks with ABC, which will have an opening after their popular "Lost" program ends.
"There's hope for the world despite the magnitude of the 2012 disaster as seen in the film," said Gordon. "After the movie, there are some people who survive and the question is how will these survivors build a new world and what will it look like. That might make an interesting TV series."

"V" was seen by 14.3 million viewers and had a 5.2 rating among adults 18-49.
That's the biggest scripted series premiere rating for a freshman show this fall. And particularly impressive for a show that's self-starting ABC's lineup (it's the highest-rated 8 p.m. drama series debut since … ABC's "Lost," actually). Compared to the "Shark Tank" average in the time period, "V" was up a rather dizzying 213%.
"V" bested tough competition from "NCIS" (20.2 million, 4.3), which nonetheless ranked as the evening's most-watched show. The alien invasion drama gained 6% from its first half hour to its second.
Critics were a bit all over the map on "V", ranging from a rave in USA Today to NY Times calling it slapdash and formulaic to Hollywood Reporter landing somewhere in between. (Most agreed, however, that the scene below rocked).
Since a dissatisfied ABC changed showrunners on the series after seeing the first four episodes, it should be interesting to see if "V" is able to maintain its ratings strength over the coming weeks. If it does, ABC will bring back the show starting with Episode 5 in March. ABC's other new sci-fi drama, "FlashForward," also launched strong in an 8 p.m. slot, but has since softened in the ratings amid some viewer frustration and a showrunner shakeup.
The 8 p.m. "V" surge put ABC just a tenth of a point behind CBS for the nightly win. "NCIS" wasn't impacted much by "V," slouching 9% from its last original airing two weeks ago. "NCIS: Los Angeles" (15.3 million, 3.6) was down 8%. "Good Wife" (12.2 million, 2.7) won 10 p.m. and slipped a tenth.
After "V," audiences didn't stick around to boost ABC's "Dancing With the Stars" (15.1 million, 3.1), which was only up a tenth — very different crowds. "The Forgotten" (7.3 million, 1.9) was down a tenth.
NBC's two-hour "Biggest Loser" (9.1 million, 3.5) was down 10%. The Jay Leno Show" (6 million, 2.0) had a welcome rise from last Tuesday — up 11%. Fox's "So You Think You Can Dance" (6.1 million, 2.4) slipped a tenth. The CW's "90210" (1.9 million, 1.0) was on par while "Melrose Place" (1.5 million, 0.8) gained a bit.
