  1. ok why is peyton setting up a crib and baby proofing the house when she isn’t giving birth for like 7 months?? she obviously has way too much time on her hands

  2. okay i freaked out when i heard “you found me” was the coda ; i love love FREAKING LOVE that song. and i cried like a freaking baby at that last leyton scene, OH EM GEE that was perfection. and i totally loved the last scene with brooke and sam ; i really liked that one =) even tho we didn’t get any naley, at least haley kinda sorta had her own story line. which i liked it. it at least led up so *hopefully* they’ll have to mentionher next episode. again, totally in love.

    off to watch it again! lol

  3. they picked the perfect quotes to show the ending scenes for the characters. my favorite brooke quote ever, and one of my favorite leyton convos. and i cried at the dr’s too! as soon as luke walked in the door!

  4. steph it was…

    “They eye each other. Just a boy and a girl. Alone but together in this place called Tree Hill.”

  5. Left? Retired? Who knows. They never said.

    Oh god, I cried during the last part with Leyton. And when Peyton called Lucas and his voicemail said if she wanted to keep the message or not so she decided to just act like everything was fine. And when she got the crib from Karen & Andy (Don’t ask me why I had tears in my eyes, but I did)
    I loved this episode. OMG Jamie & Dan!!! I love those scenes. LOVE THEM! They deserve the screen time. I really wanted to see Nathan play but I’m glad he’s first line. He deserves it.
    This episode did not let me down. I loved it. Why? Core 5!!! Plus Dan&Jamie. It was the perfect mix. I could watch the whole episode over and over without getting bored or skipping over parts.

  6. Julian completely redeemed himself in that last diner scene. Even his facial expressions when Brooke was yelling at him were GREAT!! He really really likes her! Yeay for Brooke!!! Knowing that she’s gonna be happy is even making me like Leyton a little bit = ))

  7. hey molly ok i think i wrote a little unclear last night ow it is about 9:08 am in germany we live both in europe between us is only an hour because i live in a zon ewhere we have CET +1 !!! and well sorry again !
    it seems to be a great episode so i am going to watch it later today

  8. Why did Lucas not get the Weird Science reference Dixon said?? Remember his 1st date with Brooke….
    Brooke: Tell me you love Weird Science.
    Lucas: …the family jewels.
    Brooke: He doesnt even have a license Lisa.

    I also loved when Brooke told Lucas, “you called me your ‘Pretty Girl’” haha. I love Brucas & they will always be #1 in my heart, but I am loving me some Brulian. Julian is cute :)

  9. Great episode! I was either crying, smiling or laughing :) loved when Dan called Jamie his best friend, actually brought tears to my eyes. Felt sorry for him. I totally felt sorry for Peyton for having to go through everything by her self but then in the end ♥ It was just so perfect and again I was crying lol

    New principal…sucks. Haley is strong, I knew that she would do it like that. And Brooke and Julian, I actually like him now. He is so good with Brooke and she needs it. She has changed so much, I really like her character nowadays.

    Sucks that we have a break…again.

  10. What is the director’s name? All this time I thought it was Dixon, but tonight they called him Adam and Reese… Anyone know?

  11. Oooh im from england too and i have had a 4 day weekend cos of the snow! So glad! i have watched like 20 episodes of OTH and instead of having to wait all day to watch the latest, i can watch it now!!!!!! YAY SNOW AND YAY OTH!!!

  12. Anyone else read on Peyton Sawyer’s Wikipedia that it is revealed that Peyton and Julian broke up because she had miscarried their child which leads to her miscarrying her and Lucas’child too :( :( :( nooooooooo!

  13. does anyone know when the next eppi is on it was here on the website but its gone is it a 4 week break?

  14. Well did you see the show, Julian and Peyton broke up because she still loved Lucas, and that she had that book in her bag when they were about to leave. So totally no. Or else how come they were going somewhere together when you say they broke up because of miscarriage?.. They were together when they were about to leave, but the book made him realize that she wasn’t the love of her life. Duhh, who can compete Lucas.. Lucas isn’t around with the crip and everything and she still loves him as hell, no matter what she will never stop love Lucas! And that last episode, was “teeeears” awww, sooo cute. I loved their ultrasound, just wished it was longer, but hey.. gotta be satisfied with what we got (;. Tltl.

  15. can i just say that i LOVED how particular Lucas was when he was trying to find the perfect Peyton for his movie? it was so cute how he just had to find the PERFECT girl to play her, otherwise the movie just wouldn’t be the same. and how he closed his eyes when that one girl was talking, trying to picture the real Peyton in his head. ughhh so cute :)

    “i didn’t get to pick the director, i’m not making that same mistake with Peyton”

  16. umm..about peyton and julian breaking up…it was because julian saw the book peyton had and that she never let go of lucas..not about miscarrying their child…
    so does anyone know when the wedding is gonna be..i cant wait anymore..i really wanna see the LP wedding…i cant wait….AHHHHHHHH
    Stupid 4-5 week break…this is just ridiculous…2 weeks break..6 weeks break..than 2 week break again..and now 5 week break…wth??….do they have any idea how much misery this is putting on the fans??…so there’s a time jump right??…so how many months preggers will peyton be??
    i cant wait for the next episode…AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

  17. Hm.. Naquesha, i read somewhere that The LP wedding will be season finale and the episode is called; Touch me, im going to scream part 2.

    But i’m not sure, that its season finale, it was something i read somewhere, but i don’t remember where.

    But i kinda have an imaginary season finale.

    I it will be the wedding and Peyton will be nine months in her pregnancy, and when they come to the yes part she’ll scream that her water broke. And then she will give birth, and after they will continue the wedding, whether on the hospital or they will do it like before :) .

  18. The only good part of this episode was Brooke and Julian talking in the restaurant when he told her about the REAL Brooke, the Brooke she is now. The rest was just CHEESY.
    Just our opinion of course, but we keep watching. hoping it will get better,,,,,,,,,,unfortunately it HASN’T! We are all for Brooke and Julian and SICK of LEYTON. TOTALLY SICK!!!!

  19. omg does any body kno the scenes 4 da next episode i waz watching 1 tre hil on monday i only caught da last 20 minutes then it just switched 2 friends? i didnt c any previews .that was so weird friends is never on @9pm.
