Episode Summary

This was supposed to be the last episode of the show, but it was cancelled by FOX before it had even had a chance to air - or even be produced.

This would be the episode in which the flashbacks and the present would merge and Samantha's murderer would be revealed, along with several other mysteries the shw has left hanging.

According to the FOX executives and responsible for the show, the identity of the killer was leaning towards Sam's abandoned daughter Amy. However, some time after the show's cancellation, it was revealed that there was a big chance of changing the killer's identity to Craig's father.

Recently, it was posted all over gossip websites that both suspects would turn out to be the killers. This is how the plot was supposed to be: Amy would shoot Sam by accident. Craig would find her dying body and call his father for help. When arriving to the scene, his father would realize Sam was still breathing and finish the job in order to help his son's political career.

Rumor has it that the show has re-started shooting in Vancouver last august. However, many fans point out it is very unlikely, once two of the main actors of Reunion's cast have already picked up new projects: Alexa Davalos is now starring Feast of love and Dave Annable is storring on Brothers and Sisters.moreless

    • According to Peter Liguori's, from FOX, this is why Reunion was cancelled and how things were meant to turn out: "Reunion was particularly cumbersome in terms of trying to provide an ending for the audience. How [creator] Jon [Harmon Feldman] was laying out the show to gap those additional 14, 15, 16 years was an incredibly complex path. There were a number of options, and he didn't make a definitive decision on which option he was going to go with as to who the killer was, and there was just no way to accelerate that time. We put these shows on with every good intention to end them, but eventually, the audience votes. We discussed a number of options, and the best guess at that particular time was that it was going to be Sam's daughter that was actually the killer."
