WhereOWeb stay a step ahead of your favorite shows W HAT WILL HAPPEN in the new episodes of your go-to TV shows this season? Head to the Web. Checking out so-called spoilers — upcoming plot twists — before episodes air has become a must for die-hard fans of shows from Buffy the Vampire Slayer to Friends. Amateur fan sites and professional gossips have fueled the trend, seeking out industry sources, scouring obscure interviews with show producers for clues and doggedly sharing with fans as much as they can about what will happen long before shows hit the airwaves. Among the juicy tidbits we found: whether Lana Lang will survive a twister when the WB's hit Smallville returns to the small screen Tuesday (she will); what's in store for the now- widowed Jack Bauer on the new season of Fox's 24 (a new love interest); and what's up with Carter and Abby on ER (hint: there's a shower scene). For more on Smallville, go to Craig Byrne's fan site, He reveals which of Clark Kent's Mends will learn he has secret powers, which new power Clark will develop, and why Lex Luthor appears to be headed to the altar.
