Marcio in Ipswich, Mass.: Could we get some news on One Tree Hill or Melrose Place? Will they both stick around?
Nope. I’m told Melrose Place is pretty much a goner. It would take a miracle for it to survive at this point. However, the jury’s still out on One Tree Hill. The ratings in the next few weeks do matter, and it returns with a new episode tonight. (Hint, hint.)
Jenelle from Conn.: Yay! One Tree Hill is back tonight! The death of Haley’s mom made for such a great episode! What happens after?
Well, when we talked to James Lafferty, he had this to say: “Haley has a long road ahead of her in dealing with her mother’s death, as anybody would. A big part of the Scott family life will be dealing with the grief. It’s definitely a growing experience for the family.” Another tease? Here’s the deal with Nathan for the rest of the season: “He’s finally got some time to spend with his family, and his family at this point in their lives really needs him,” James tells us. “He really gets the opportunity to be a father and a husband.” Model husband and father? Adorable.

Whoo Hoo!! Tonight felt so great. It’s been too long since I live-blogged an episode of One Tree Hill but it’s back!
Here’s my take:
- While I like feisty Brooke, I also liked the Brooke we saw tonight. Commanding yet compassionate. I’m glad she’s happy and her and Julian seem like they’re on a good path. Hopefully there’s nothing around the corner!
- The sex tape. So at the end and at the previews we find out Josh IS behind the whole deal but apparently it’s spiraled out of control. And apparently Josh is gay?? What the heck is going on? Did he want it leaked so everyone wouldn’t know he was gay?
- TMI with Victoria and Alexander. I think I’m over that. If they try to make their relationship serious, I may seriously throw up. Little gag reflex with the big reveal. Didn’t you love Brooke’s reaction when the curtain came down?
- Nathan is always super cute as a doting father but I wasn’t a big fan of the Kiss moment. But I don’t want to dwell on that because the shaving and reading moments were really cute. Speaking of Nathan as a father, it simply melted my little heart when Nathan told Haley he wanted another baby!! Super squeeee!!!! A Naley baby!
- Let’s talk about Haley. My heart broke for her when she went into the ugly cry at the pool. While it was the “ugly cry” it wasn’t ugly. It was a beautiful ugly cry. Does that make sense? In other words, Haley acted her butt off. I simply can not imagine losing my mother and whatever dark period she goes through, I don’t hold it against her for one second. Bless her heart.
- While I feel bad for Skills, I’m all Team Mouth and I just hope Skills and Mouth can make up eventually.
- Katie. Psycho Nanny 2.0 or is it Psycho Derek 3.0? She’s lost her mind. I’d really just like her arrested already somehow and kicked out of Tree Hill but it looks like we’re going to have to ride another psycho out. I hope we survive!
- Finally I fully enjoyed Quinn. She looked smoking hot tonight and I loved that she had to do. I like happy Quinn!
Overall I felt like this was a solid episode, probably one of my favorites of Season 7.

Quinn: Your love for her won’t diminish us.
Clay: So you don’t think I’m weird?
Quinn: All I know is that if I could see my mom, I would stay up all night talking to her.
Brooke: Mother, another button please? The slutty milf look is sooo not you!
Josh: Please do your job: keep my trailer stocked with red vines and lube!
Julian: Hey Christian Slater, calm down!
Jamie: I’m bored.
Nathan: You can’t be bored, you’re seven. You have any idea how fun being seven is? You know who’s babysitting you tonight?
Jamie: Please say Junk and Fergie!
Nathan: Nope, me!
Jamie: Is this how you got mom?
Nathan: It took a lot more than a close shave to get your mom.
Nathan: When I met your mom I wasn’t the nicest guy in the world. I was selfish and fought a lot, but your mom made me better. Your mom made Uncle Lucas good too.
Jamie: It must’ve been so cool having a brother…it’s like having your best friend over at your house all the time!
Nathan: You gotta remember Uncle Lucas and I weren’t really close when we were your age, but yeah, having a brother is like having an automatic best friend.
Nathan: Can I ask you a favor? Even though she doesn’t show it all the time your mom is still very sad that your grandma died.
Nathan: So I need you to keep an eye on her to make sure she’s not too sad…be the man of the house.

Rob knows about the basketballs!!
Frantic fans have been known to do everything in their power to save their shows. Roswell watchers sent 3,000 bottles of Tabasco to the WB network execs. CBS programmers received 20 tons of peanuts from those desperate to save Jericho. And Chuck was kept on the air in part because of viewers purchasing foot-long sandwiches from product-placement sponsor Subway.
So what are One Tree Hill fans sending to the CW to save their show? Robert Buckley (Clay) tells us…
“I didn’t know this, but apparently fans are sending in basketballs to the CW. That’s not easy to send a basketball!” laughs OTH new dude Buckley. “You have to make a big effort to send an object that awkward and big in the mail. I was really surprised, because that’s not a cheap or easy thing to do. But apparently they’re sending basketballs to the CW powers that be.”

Definitely check out Zap2It’s rehab for OTH below. The only one I whole-heartedly disagree with is Ditch Brooke’s mom. Victoria entertains me and in general I miss many of the older cast members.

After a few months on hiatus, “One Tree Hill” returns this Monday (April 26) with the final four episodes of Season 7.
As of now, the series has not yet been renewed for an eighth year, so what happens in these next few hours should be interesting.
Korbi TV caught up with “OTH” star James Lafferty (Nathan Scott) to get a little scoop on what we can expect…
Last we saw Nathan, his mother-in-law had just lost her battle with cancer. Will much of your upcoming storyline revolve around Nathan helping Haley and Jamie through that loss?
JL: It’s actually Nathan and Jamie helping Haley through it. She’s obviously the one that’s hit the hardest by [her mother's death]. Her and [her sister] Quinn. So it’s something that is going to pull the Scott family unit tighter.
