"What's faster than a speeding bullet?" will be the easily-guessed quiz for the next episode of "Smallville". In "Shield", an assassin named Deadshot (guest star Bradley Stryker) takes aim at new Daily Planet reporter by the name of Kat but Clark learns the man has a dangerous hidden agenda that involves The Blur.
Lois departs for Egypt and Carter Hall (guest star Michael Shanks) turns up in there to keep an eye on her and he tells her about his wife Shayera (guest star Sahar Biniaz). Hall is the real name of fellow superhero Hawkman who had appeared in the show's "Absolute Justice" episode in February.
Immediately after "Smallville", "Supernatural" takes over with the episode called "Two and a Half Men". Sam investigates a case about missing babies whose parents are being murdered. At one of the crime scenes, he discovers a baby that was left behind and calls Dean for help. Reluctant to leave Lisa and Ben, Dean finally agrees to meet Sam and surprises his brother with how parental he has become.
The brothers take the baby to Samuel, who decides to raise it as a hunter, which infuriates Dean. However, before they can decide the baby's future, a shape-shifter breaks in and attempts to kidnap the baby.
"Shield" and "Two and a Half Men" air October 1 at 8/7c and 9/8c respectively.
