thoughts on one tree hill: a rush of blood to the head

BARBARA ALYN WOODS AND ANTWON TANNER GUEST STAR – Haley (Bethany Joy Galeotti) receives news of a possible tragedy. Dan’s (Paul Johansson) search for Nathan (James Lafferty) leads him back to his dark past. Clay (Robert Buckley) has a breakthrough in his treatment. Brooke (Sophia Bush) and Julian (Austin Nichols) deal with Xavier (guest star Devin McGee). Chase’s (Stephen Colletti) concern for Chuck (guest star Michael May) pushes him to his limits. Shantel VanSanten, Jackson Brundage, Lee Norris, Lisa Goldstein and Tyler Hilton also star. The episode was written by Johnny Richardson and directed by Greg Prange. (Courtesy of cwtv.com)

  • How long can Xavier continue being a blatant creep? I don’t even remember Dan being this boisterous after he’d killed Keith.
  • I don’t understand how Clay forgot he had a child (Logan) since that had to happen BEFORE Sara died.
  • Why is Tree Hill the base for an eastern European drug/kidnapping syndicate?
  • From “Clean Teen” to “Big Brother” to “Fresh Meat”. Hats off to Chase, a true journeyman.
  • I see Dan strolling right down Martyrdom Lane. Anyone else?
  • Xavier’s “Have a nice day” is incredibly polite…even if it is associated with bad things.
  • New Jamie Clay’s son Logan is the best new character.
  • “Those suckers are so clutch.” For some reason I found this hilarious.
  • Nanny Deb is back…possible reconciliation with Skills in the near future?
  • David and Ms. Laurent have somehow been dating…and made a child….and no one knew about it? Why are the writers trying to make Tree Hill seem so big these days?
  • Is anyone feeling like this season is overrun with story lines? Sure, it’s the last season and there’s a need to go out with a bang…but all of these little bangs better tie together sooner rather than later.

thoughts on one tree hill: don’t you want to share the guilt?

We missed last week, so previously-previously on One Tree Hill: In The Room Where You Sleep

By: Nicole + Will

As Julian (Austin Nichols) deals with his guilt, Brooke (Sophia Bush) helps Haley (Bethany Joy Galeotti) confront a new rival caf√©, and its difficult owner. Meanwhile, Chase’s (Stephen Colletti) new girl has a complicated secret, and Quinn (Shantel VanSanten) takes extreme measures that help Clay (Robert Buckley) realize he’s worse off than he thought. James Lafferty, Tyler Hilton, Lee Norris, Lisa Goldstein, and Paul Johansson also star.. (Courtesy of cwtv.com)

  • Brooke was a lot calmer than we expected. Julian made a major ‘daddy don’t’, but him punishing himself seemed more effective than any rage she could have tossed his way.
  • ‘Karen’s Cafe Hires Murderers’…that may not be slander, but they pluralized murderers and as far as we know…Dan is the only one that fits that bill.
  • Why do I feel like Haley actually wants Dan to stick around when/if Nathan returns to Tree Hill.
  • Dan semi-drowning Clay never gets old. He just looks so helpless every time. Keep up the good work Dan Scott.
  • Quinn runs, barefoot, to confront the drug dealer. And he threatens them by saying he’ll kill them…and then set them on fire? Is that a thing now?
  • ‘Not Alex’ (Chelsea Kane, Dancing with the Stars) is the perfect example of what they mean by “the best way to get over someone is to get under someone else.”
  • Skills is back from his sports choreographer gig. Did anyone else forget he left, as well as what he does for a living?
  • Do Mouth and Millie not have a producer? Who runs that show?!
  • Chris Keller and Chase have a brewing bromance? Why not…it’s not like either of them hang out with anyone else in Tree Hill.
  • Just when I was starting to like the drama that was building in the Quinn/Clay relationship, he gets shipped off to the looney bin? Not a fan.
  • How does Dan threatening that drug dealer play into his overall plan? Because at this point, it’s obvious he has one.
  • When did Chris Keller get a girlfriend? And why is she the owner of the rival diner? Most importantly, why is she ruining the brewing bromance?
  • OTH has no problem doing hokey plots and storylines, so Nathan being kidnapped shouldn’t be new ground. Yet, it was kind of unexpected.

one tree killer (semi-spoiler alert!?)

 

A new cast member has been added for the ninth and FINAL! season of One Tree Hill. His name is Andrew Elvis Miller and he has been programmed to kill – he isn’t a robot just some hyperbole on my part. I think our previous post (fall 2011: new shows we won’t be watching) played a major role in this decision.

Seeing as though execs are throwing the “final season” phrase around and there have already been contractual disputes with original cast member Sophia Bush someone might be going out the hard way. I’ll admit I was skeptical about the show continuing after Lucas and Peyton drove into obscurity but the following two seasons weren’t as bad as expected. But, lately, I’ve honestly been waiting for the next big plot twist and all I got was Brooke STILL not getting a family (Sorry?).

One Tree was consistent drama that actually made a decent transition from the cast starting in high school and moving ahead – via time jump – to life after college with the exception of Nathan (Sorry again?). Words of advice to the cast “Keep your head down”.
