    • Although not identical, this episode parallels in some ways the recently cancelled FOX show Reunion. Both are about high school graduates (4 here and 6 on Reunion) who endure dramatic events, including an unplanned pregnancy, until one of them is eventually killed years later, with the other friends being suspects for the crime. In fact, Reunion and this episode both told the story in a year-by-year format. Even more interesting, this episode told the story over 8 years; when Reunion was cancelled, it had also covered 8 years (although the plan was to cover 20 years altogether). But unlike in Reunion, this time we got to know who the killer was.
