One Tree Hill

One Tree Hill- Know this, we’ve noticed



“Ipod and a glass of wine”

I like this town, I really do.. And I’ve liked it since about 2003 when One Tree Hill premiered. You see I cried on the last season finale when I saw Jaime walking in Uncle Lucas’s footsteps because that would have been the perfect ending to the perfect series but when I saw those white letters on a black background I knew I was home. See One Tree Hill doesn’t need to have insane out of this world drama for it to be a good show. I connect with the characters and seeing them is like seeing my friends grow up- only I’m growing up too. This season looks like a promising one, not that I ever doubt the producers and writers, I just wish that Peyton was coming back with Lucas one final time.

This episode was more of a “Welcome Back” to catch fans up on what they missed during the break. Brooke had twins and their turning out to be a pain in the ass because all they do is cry. Fortunately Brooke and Julian are a power couple that approach every bad moment in life with some comical relief and an optimistic attitude. For this reason, Brooke has been one of my favorite characters throughout. She never focuses on the bad things because things could be a lot worse, but if her biggest problem in life are crying babies, than damn she is one lucky woman. Brooke also gives a lot of chances to people who don’t really deserve them. In the past seasons it was to Victoria, but in this new season its to her father Ted. Heres hoping that this relationship doesn’t head south. 

As much as Haley moans and complains deep down inside she missed Chris Keller just as much as I did. Seeing familiar faces in Tree Hill is so heartwarming and you know whenever Chris Keller is around, trouble is not far behind. Only this time it seems that it is going to involve Miss Duprey and her boyfriend Chase. As sex addicted and infatuated with each other as they are, they are the couple on this show thats on a constant honey moon and Chris Keller can smell them out like new born babies and he will feed on that…. (Yeah I know this isn’t Vampire Diaries I know I know, no feeding on people). 

Who this creep trying to stalk Haley’s household and Karen’s Cafe is I’m not quite sure, but I don’t feel too vested in the story line either way. I believe Tree Hill has had enough of their psycho-stalkers for the time being. Unless its Uncle Lucas popping back for a visit I’ll take it, but than why would he be all cryptic and snoopy?  I also don’t understand the Clay and Quinn storyline? Sure Clay is sleep walking and we all know the dangers of that but why? Is he still under some pressure from the shooting? This brings me to my next point… 
 I am not really sure what the first 2 minutes of the episode were all about because there was no specification as to how much time had gone by between the first scenes and the latter episodes. Why was Chris Keller working with Dan? Dan specified that his diner burned down when he reached out to Haley for help, but when he was in the car with Keller it seemed like they were watching his diner burn down so does that mean Dan is still a evil person and he is lying his way into Nathan’s life? Who does Haley find under that white sheet? Does Nathan die? Why is Julian getting beat up and why is Brooke destroying her cafe? And why the hell is Chase being arrested? It is so typical of OTH writers to leave us with all these questions.

One thing is for certain, I have never been nor will I ever be a Clay and Quinn fanatic so if shipping off Clay to Europe is the only solution to Nathan getting more screen time than so be it. And may I emphasize the fact that Peyton should be running the cafe alongside her friends B. Davis and H. James as they exchange baby advice and bask in their hometown glory (check out that whole “Hello Brooke, Ohh I love that. Goodbye Haley, Ohh I love that” scene). These are precisely the scenes I love OTH for. And of course their opening quotes and always tasteful music. 

Memorable Quotes

  • Nathan: Some day after mastering the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we will harness for God the energies of love and then, for a second time in history of the world man will have discovered fire.
  • Julian: I think they tag off. That way they both get their rest unlike us.
  • Julian: People say it gets better… People lie!
  • Julian: Plan C. We’ll take them to an orphanage. Their cute somebody will take them.
  • Nathan: People say hell is endless. They say its our worst nightmare, the face of our darkness. But whatever it is, however it is, I say hell is empty and all the devils are here. 
  • Brooke: They team up on me with their wonder twin powers of cuteness and its like I get a double dose of guilt.
  • Chris Keller: Ok Ok you don’t look hot, even though you do.
  • Victoria: Whatever makes you think he’ll change?
    • Brooke: You did.
  • Keller: The song is crappy, that ass is not.
  • Haley: And I sleep better knowing your side of the bed is closer to the door because if somebody breaks in their probably going to get to you first and then I can run ok.
    • Nathan: You say the sweetest things to me Haley James.
  • Brooke: Its funny, I grew up in Tree Hill. I spent most of my life here. But it wasn’t until my boys wee born and I couldn’t sleep that I really got to know this place.
  • Julian: Their buying boys in China!!
  • Keller: Chris Keller likes jamming with Chris Keller. That way he’s working with the best. 
Both the Songs are Beautiful, and I have to add Chris Kellers original that cracked me up on the episode. 

and if any of you are feeling sentimental, heres an awesome Youtube video I found.

Sophia Bush Reveals Challenges of Working With Ex Chad Michael Murray on ‘One Tree Hill’ After Divorce



Sophia Bush Reveals Challenges of Working With Ex Chad Michael Murray on 'One Tree Hill' After Divorce

Sophia Bush may have just gotten married, but she’s reflecting on a past, high-profile relationship on the Drama Queens podcast.

Specifically, her marriage and divorce from One Tree Hill co-star, Chad Michael Murray. 

While chatting with her former co-stars, Bethany Joy Lenz and Hilarie Burton—who are all too familiar with what went down between Biush and Murray—the actress opened up about the hardships of having to work on set after the couple divorced in 2006. They got engaged in 2004 and married in 2005. 

In fact, Bush said it was even more difficult because their characters, Brooke Davis and Lucas Scott, started dating around the same time their relationship was hitting a rough patch that it would never bounce back from. 

“Not for nothing, you were going through a breakup with the person that you were playing a romance opposite of,” Joy Lenz said. 

“And regardless of what all those circumstances were, that’s incredibly difficult — emotionally to be able to be vulnerable and be there in that moment. There’s lots of actors who have done that — who’ve done movies and TV shows and things, they date their costar or whatever, it doesn’t work out. But the fact that you were able to just be that raw and open and vulnerable, it’s a real credit to you as an artist.  You put your art in front of everybody and just were like, ‘Look, this is it. I’m just sharing my heart and here we are’. I thought it was really beautiful,” she said. 

Bush gave a very mature answer, explaining that regardless of what was going on in her personal life, she prioritized the show and the character that resonated with so many young women.

“People can call it whatever they want. They can say it’s strength, they can say it’s pride, they can say its professionalism — you can put a positive or a negative skew on I, but I was always going to put Brooke Davis ahead of everybody and everything else. Nothing mattered to me but being honest for her,” she explained.

The actress, who recently wed Grant Hughes in a stunning and poignant Oklahoma wedding, previously refused to speak about her marriage to Murray as she didn’t want her career to be defined by a relationship. 

 “I refuse to let that one relationship define me, which is why I’ve done my best to avoid discussing it for 10 years,” she began, while acknowledging that it was a “massive event” in her life. 

She added: “The trauma of it was amplified by how public it became, which was incredibly foreign and bizarre to a girl who’d been just another college kid 24 months before her life blew up.”

Bush remained on OTH for the show’s full nine-season duration, which wrapped in 2012. Meanwhile, Murray exited the teen drama in season 6. He has since started a family with Crackle co-star Sarah Roemer. The duo married in 2015 and share two children.

One Tree Hill: Why Haley and Lucas Were Friendship Goals



Lucas and Haley are Friendship Goals on One Tree Hill

There are plenty of relationships fans can “ship” on One Tree Hill.

You can be #TeamBrucas, #TeamLeyton, or #TeamNaley, and they’re all great in their own way.

But there’s undoubtedly one relationship that trumps them all — Laley, aka Lucas and Haley.

As with all friendships, they’ve had a fair share of ups-and-downs.

They grew apart briefly, but despite the rocky road, they’ve always managed to come back to each other and never lose the love.

We'll Always be Friends

On One Tree Hill Season 4 Episode 3, Haley asked Lucas to promise her that “matter what happens, you and I will always be friends.” And he kept that promise.

Significant others came and went, but Lucas and Haley remained best friends throughout the entirety of the series.

Even after Lucas and Peyton drove off into the sunset (Chad Michael Murray and Hilarie Burton exited the show on One Tree Hill Season 6), their friendship lived on off-screen.

When it comes to OTH relationships, Haley and Lucas’s was the purest one.

It was the most enduring relationship in the series, having started in childhood.

When we met them on One Tree Hill Season 1 Episode 1, they already had an established connection that was built on a foundation of trust and memories.

Their dynamic would have allowed the writers to easily cross the line and give in to the played-out friends-to-lovers trope (and maybe that was even the plan at one point), but the best thing about Lucas and Haley is that they never crossed that line.

The fact that they remained best friends and never pursued each other romantically made them far more interesting than if they would have ever considered dating.

Never Romantic

In a small town like Tree Hill, it’s almost unheard of for a guy and girl to be “just friends.”

But Haley and Lucas proved that members of the opposite sex could love each other platonically.

These are some of our favorite things about them:

They Were Protective Over Each Other

We first begin to understand Lucas and Haley’s relationship on One Tree Hill Season 1 Episode 1.

They’re the outcasts that always stuck together and had each other’s backs.

When Nathan starts cozying up to Haley after she offers to tutor him, Lucas gets protective and warns her against getting involved with his half-brother because he believes he’s only getting close to her to get back at him.

While Lucas isn’t entirely wrong, he also trusts Haley to make the right decision, even if he doesn’t agree with it.

In turn, Haley’s decision to tutor is fueled by wanting to protect Lucas. She offers Nathan her math tutoring services on the condition that stop bullying Lucas and leave him alone.

They Cheer Each Other Up

Though it would be easy for Lucas to point out that he warned Haley about Nathan’s self-serving intentions, he never does. Instead, he’s there for his best friend.

On One Tree Hill Season 1 Episode 7, when Haley believes that Nathan’s been making fun of their relationship, she confesses that he showed her his true colors and she fell for it because she’s “stupid,” but Luke assures her that she’s far from it.

Smart Girl is Really Stupid

Instead of saying, “I told you so,” he’s supportive and lends her a shoulder to cry on.

On One Tree Hill Season 1 Episode 18, famously known as the “Boy Toy Episode,” Haley taps into her savings from the cafe so that she can buy Lucas during the auction to spend time with him.

At the end of a fun-filled night, Lucas assures Haley that “If Nathan doesn’t see how special you really are, then he’s an idiot cause I think you’re amazing.”

He may not be fully supportive of the relationship, but he always wanted her to follow her heart and be happy.

One Tree Hill: Where Are They Now?




Teen drama One Tree Hill ended its nine-season run in 2012, and there hasn’t been a show quite like it since.

Many of the actors catapulted into stardom thanks to the series and are now killing it on both the big and small screen. Meanwhile, others have removed themselves from the spotlight completely.

However, nothing bonds a group of strangers quite like a TV show. Their bond has remained strong, and they continue to hang out and keep in touch with fans at conventions which have also kept the legacy of the series alive for new and old fans alike.

There are even talks of a possible revival in the near-future.

So, let’s return to Tree Hill and see what your basketball-loving, small-town actors have been up to since the series wrapped.

1. Chad Michael Murray – Lucas Scott

Chad Michael Murray - Lucas Scott

Much like his character Lucas Scott, actor Chad Michael Murray became a writer. He published his first novel, Everlast HC in 2011, and in 2017 he published American Drifter: A Thriller. Murray has also been keeping up appearances on the small screen.

He starred in Hallmark’s “The Beach House,” played Sam Phillips in Sun Records, tackled the role of Jack Thompson in Agent Carter, and even had a minor role in Fox’s Scream Queens. He married Chosen co-star Sarah Roemer in 2015, and they welcomed their first son in 2016. He attends many of the One Tree Hill fan conventions so make sure you add one to your bucket list.

2. James Lafferty – Nathan Scott

The weekend is coming…

The other Scott brother graduated from actor to director. Lafferty worked off-screen directing several episodes of E!’s series The Royals, which hails from now-disgraced OTH showrunner Mark Schwahn. Much like Murray, Lafferty is a frequent guest at the OTH conventions where he catches up with fans.

Recently, he teamed up with former co-star Stephen Colletti on an independent TV pilot titled Everyone is Doing Great. The half-hour comedy follows the two struggling actors, Seth and Jeremy played by Colletti and Lafferty, respectively, as they try to reclaim the success they had when their vampire drama was in its prime. The pilot will be showcased at the 2018 ATX TV Festival in Austin, Texas in June. He also starred in the Underground TV series in 2016 as U.S Marshal Kyle Risdin. And as far as we know, he’s still single, ladies!

3. Sophia Bush – Brooke Davis

Sophia Bush has remained in the spotlight the most. After her role as Brooke Davis came to an end, she starred in Chicago PD as Detective Lindsay. She left the show abruptly after season four and later revealed that she “couldn’t do the job anymore.” She said the show made her “miserable” before alluding to how women are treated in the industry.

She recently announced that she will be voicing Voyd in Incredibles 2. In addition to her acting career, Bush is also an activist who uses her platform to address women’s issues, the fight for equality, LGBTQ rights, climate change and much more.
