One Tree Hill is finally back with a new episode, and it was a doozy. What a rollercoaster ride! One minute I was happy and loving the adorable Nathan and Haley scenes, then the next I was crying over Lucas and Peyton’s devastating situation. Then we had Mouth and Millie’s seemingly last goodbye and Brooke and Julian came to a crossroads in their relationship. It was definitely a jam-packed episode, full of revelations and heartbreak. But what does it all mean for the future of this show?
Is Peyton really a goner? Would the writers of this show actually kill off Peyton Sawyer, or is this a fake out? Well, by the way Peyton was talking to Lucas it looks like she has accepted her fate. I can understand her decision of going through with the pregnancy, even if it means that she could die. A parent’s love is about sacrifice, right? I give the show credit for bringing up this issue, but I’m not sure why it had to be this way. Are we looking at a season seven of One Tree Hill with Lucas raising a baby on his own? Would any of you be interested in watching that?
I loved all of Nathan and Haley’s scenes together. Their private anniversary celebration with some nods to It’s a Wonderful Life was really cute and a long time coming. We finally got some romantic Naley and it seems like it’s been forever. With all the crazy nanny stuff and Nathan’s basketball career, it was nice to see these two reconnect again. It looks like Haley might be going back on tour again but with her family this time. I don’t know how that’s going to work with Jamie, but we’ll see what happens. I for one would love to see Haley pick up a guitar again and actually have a storyline.
Julian dropped the l-word on Brooke and she totally freaked. He loves her but she was not ready to say it back to him. Julian put it together that the last person that Brooke fell in love with was Lucas. Even though he said he would wait for her, he is feeling completely insecure about her past with Lucas. Can we really blame him? Look what happened to his relationship with Peyton. I loved his line about if he found more than one copy of Lucas’ book he was leaving. I think it was a little too soon for the “I love you” so I can understand where Brooke is coming from. But is that really the reason why she couldn’t say it?
It was nice to see Dan and Deb in the same room again, even if it was only because Jamie conveniently forgot to mention he was inviting Grandpa Dan for dinner. Their confrontation was really intense. I keep having to remind myself not to like Dan, but I just love his scenes with Jamie. It makes me want that beeper to go off, so Jamie doesn’t lose his grandpa. Well, it looks like I got what I wanted. Let’s just hope that new heart is not from someone we know. It can’t be Millie’s, right? Although she was really distraught while she was driving. Hmm.
