"Toxic", the October 2 episode of "Smallville" has been given a trailer, mainly chronicling on Oliver's past. While having only 24 hours left to live, Oliver slips into a delirious moment when he first landed on a deserted land and learned the use of bow and arrow. He also recalled his first meeting with Tess Mercer. Eventually, Oliver's life is saved by Chloe.
Speaking on the particular episode, Erica Durance who portrays Lois Lane, said that her character will somehow be affected by Oliver's near-to-death encounter. Durance elaborated, "What it did, I thought, was it created another moment for Clark and Lois to have some real intimacy because he sees her in this vulnerable position and they have a talk about dealing with relationships. Lois still isn't in love with Oliver, but what it did was it created another moment to build on that relationship with Clark."
