TVLine: One Tree Hill Star Weighs In on [Spoiler’s] Death – and the Emotional Return that Shocked Us All!

Posted by Amanda with 4 Comments

Warning: If you’ve yet to watch Wednesday’s heartbreaking episode of One Tree Hill, avert your eyes now. We repeat, do not read on! Everyone else, proceed… with caution.

After nine scandal-filled, scheme-riddled, redemption-seeking seasons, beloved One Tree Hill baddie Dan Scott on Wednesday night bid an emotional — and final — farewell to the shrub-deficient town.

While his death wasn’t entirely unexpected, the rather exceptional hour of the long-running CW series pulled off a feat rarely seen in TV today: the unspoiled return of a fan fave character.

Craig Sheffer — who portrayed Keith Scott until the noble character was murdered by Dan in Season 3 — reprised his role for the final moments of the series’ pen-penultimate episode, helping usher his brother into the afterlife — and a heavenly one at that. What’s more, Keith even offered Dan his forgiveness for that fateful day nearly a decade ago (in Tree Hill time).

TVLine spoke with Paul Johansson about the fitting death of his Tree Hill alter-ego, his final moments on set and what he thinks about Keith’s surprise return.

    I loved tonight’s episode. I know it was focusing on Dan. But where was Chris Keller. I thought they would at least show him briefly since he helped rescue Nathan.

    Great interview with Paul, he is one of my favorite actors, live him. I thought it was nice that the episode was dedicated to his mom since she passed away at that time. It made me think of my mom, she passed away last November.

    That was a great episode! I woke up early for it, since I have to leave for school in a couple minutes (it’s 6 am here) and I don’t regret it! I cried like a baby! And I can’t believe they’ve been able to keep Keith’s return a secret!

    Keith’s return was no secret and I don’t want to say anymore since what I have read would spoil the last two episodes.
