One Tree Hill- Love The Way You Lie



“And who lives in hotels? People whose stay is temporary.”
Leave it up to OTH to give us a cute and fun episode just to shatter our world in the last minute. For what its worth, every scene with Dan Scott pulls at my heart strings. I am fully aware of the fact that for 8 seasons we hated him for the way he treated Nathan, for abandoning Lucas and for killing Keith. I am also aware that he is probably up to so mischievous non-sense that we are not currently aware of. Yet every time I see his sad puppy dog eyes I feel bad for him. You have to hand it to the guy, as much as he sucked as a father, he is one heck of a chef and when Haley needed him most, he was there to help her. Haley is also not a dumb person so when someone made a scene about a “murderer” making their food, she surprisingly stood up for Dan. Although it wasn’t expected from Haley, it was the right thing to do. Dan served his time in jail, he has been trying to recompense for his mistakes and he doesn’t need strangers pointing that out to him. What did he poison your food? No. But of course every action has its consequence and this will mean that Haley might have just jeopardized her and Brooke’s cafe, or should I say Karen’s cafe. By kicking out all the business, their going to find a new place to go… Namely the new gourmet cafe that opened up right across the street. I wonder how Jaimie took the news that his grandfather is a murderer? Are the writers going to touch up on that? And seriously, when the hell is Nathan coming back?

Brooke Davis also breaks my heart because as powerful and determined as she is, she crumbles at the need of affection from her parents. And even when she gets that attention from her daddy it is only because she is used as a “bimbo” to score some deal and impress his friends. Sure she needed the financial backing from investors that her short skirt and kick-ass flirty personality got her, but she also needed quality time with her father. I guess you just cannot have it all can you?

Clearly, the Mouth and Milly storyline is still not making much sense. Although it gives for some humorous moments who cares if Mouth is fat? Milly is making this huge scene as if he’s “going to eat himself to death.” No he isn’t Milly. He gained some weight, he isn’t obese. There’s clearly a difference and putting him on the spot like that in front of millions of viewers was highly unnecessary. Speaking of irrelevant story lines that brings me to Quinn and Clay. Now the writers are tying in the fact that Clay suffered after the shooting to him buying drugs off the street to those drugs being the cause of his sleepwalking? So basically he is a druggie cause he has been using his pain medication recreationally. That’s why he didn’t pick up his prescription? There must be some more depth to this story. It just doesn’t seem believable that Clay would do all of this, jeopardize his relationship with Quinn and risk going to Europe because of an addiction. Next weeks promo’s show us Clay who isn’t capable of remembering anything that happened. As hazy as his memory is, the hazier this storyline gets. I need answers, quickly!

An unpredictable pairing we have with Chase and Chris Keller. Misery sure does love company huh? But did Alex actually break up with Chase or did she just leave to pursue her music career, cause those are two different things. Keller does have a point though, Alex was never a settle down forever kind of girl. Sure it seemed like she was for the little time they had together but let’s look at her past. She was a suffering actress who thrived through Hollywood, slept with millions of guys and had a thing for Julian.  Everything for her is always temporary and she’s always on to her next adventure in life. Who know’s maybe she will come back after the tours done, but it would be stupid of her to risk an opportunity like that for a person she may or may not be with for the rest of her life. Truthfully, nothing is forever, even life is temporary…

Now the big story is Julian. Dude what the hell. I know Julian isn’t the smartest of guys cause lets admit he’s a little dopey, but to LEAVE YOUR KID IN THE CAR! Are you insane! There is no excuse. He was nervous about his studio being rented out, thats explainable. Than he got a call that they want to meet in person, so trying to impress your potential partners is also explainable, but in the midst of all of that how the hell do you forget you have a kid with you. When Brooke called Julian and all the windows were broken and they were rescuing a child from the car my blood pressure literally skyrocketed. I cannot even begin to imagine what Brooke’s reaction the this might be. But the bigger questions: Did the baby die? Was it hot that day in Tree Hill? Will Julian have to go to jail? Are charges going to be pressed? How will this affect Brooke and Julian’s relationship? I mean the girl couldn’t have children and than she finally had twin boys and now your husband leaves one in the freaking car? Who cares about that deal you were just going to make. You can kiss all that goodbye. And if I was Brooke, you could kiss me goodbye as well…

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…

A post shared by James Lafferty (@jameslafferty) on

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.
