Tonight we say goodbye to The CW dynasty known as “One Tree Hill.” With nine seasons to its name, the show wraps for good with a two-hour series finale at 8/7 C.
It’s been a long journey for Lucas and Nathan Scott, the two brothers from North Carolina. They started out as enemies and found a common bond through their love of Haley James (platonic for Lucas and true love for Nathan). They survived a school shooting, Coach Durham dropping them off in the middle of nowhere and more relationship troubles than we care to count.
They witnessed the rise and fall of their dreams as Lucas was left at the alter and Nathan was confined to a wheelchair in the middle of his NBA career. We laughed along to Nathan’s and Mouth McFadden’s strip tease at ladies’ night and cried with Brooke Davis when she found out she couldn’t have children.
But nothing prepared us for the moments on “One Tree Hill” that would leave us gasping in horror. As we say goodbye to the characters who’ve felt like our friends for years, we take a look back at the shocking moments that kept our wide eyes glued to the screen.

In between my sobbing about the looming end of One Tree Hill tonight, I’ve managed to compile what we think are the best ten episodes of the series. It was tough. The show has given us some of the most memorable moments on television over the past nine years. Between the deaths, the weddings, the babies and the triangle drama, there was just so much to choose from.
We know not every fan will agree with every pick (we did have to leave a lot off the list), but hopefully die-hard OTH lovers will appreciate the effort and take a look back with us. It’s the end, you guys. For real, this time.

Yes… Bring on the tears!
Well, tonight at 8pm One Tree Hill will air it’s final episode ever, after 9 seasons. I couldn’t let today go by without paying homage to the show where I grew up, where I learned some of my most important life lessons, where I learned about being part of a team and being a professional, and where I fell in love with a little town and its beautiful people.
I remember my screen test for the character of “Reagan” (later to be changed to “Haley”). During my test I was in a room full of executives while reading the scene with Chad Michael Murray and there were about 4 other girls going for the part, waiting in the hallway. There was a moment about halfway through the reading when I was sitting next to Chad and I playfully knocked the side of his leg with mine. I felt the energy of the whole room shift and I knew at that moment I had gotten the part. As I walked out to my car, Chad chased me down on the WB parking lot and said “Bethany!” I turned and he gave me a big hug, saying, “Congratulations.” I smiled thinking that was very sweet of him but I’d been in this business long enough to know that nothing’s for sure until you see it on screen. Sure enough, a few hours later I got a phone call that I had 7 days to pack up my life and move to Wilmington, North Carolina.

How does a show like The CW’s One Tree Hill — which over nine seasons has given us psycho stalkers, heart-eating dogs, coming-of-age teens (and then adults!), car crashes and more weddings, babies, deaths and hook-ups than we can possibly count — plan to wrap things up in tonight’s two-hour series finale event (airing at 8/7c)?
“Quietly,” shares showrunner Mark Schwahn.
It seems that after nearly a decade of jaw-dropping and always-emotional storytelling, Tree Hill‘s creator and his trusty team have taken the drama down a notch (or 10) for a series-ender that, if all goes as planned, will play as “a thank you note” to fans.
Here, Schwahn further discusses with TVLine his toned-down approach to the Tree Hill finale — which will pepper in nostalgia-filled interviews with the cast — as well as what to expect from the sweet swan song.

The mastermind behind ‘One Tree Hill’ weighs in on one of the series’ most debated story lines: Was Dan Scott officially redeemed?
Well, kids, the day we’ve all been dreading has finally arrived: One Tree Hill‘s two-hour series finale airs at 8 p.m. tonight on The CW. I recently spoke with creator Mark Schwahn about the show’s epic nine-year run, and as is often the case, the conversation quickly turned to its most polarizing character, Dan Scott (Paul Johansson). You’ll be very happy to know that, like the fans, Mark still has very conflicted thoughts about the late villain’s redemption — or lack thereof.
“I always say that when fans used to argue about the story lines, and when our writers room had differing opinions, the show was at its best,” Mark explained. “And that was one of them. We had long-winded discussions in the writers room about whether or not Dan Scott should be redeemed.”
As he who created Dan Scott, I asked Mark if he felt the redemption was earned.

One Tree Hill is ending tonight.
It was tough to type that sentence. But tonight, on the CW, we officially say goodbye to the gang on One Tree Hill after nine roller-coaster seasons. Want to prepare yourself for the two-hour sendoff? We’ve got all the previews and photos you need to celebrate One Tree Hill day! That’s right, we made it a national Internet holiday. You can’t stop us…
“The time that we spent together has meant so much,” Haley says in the promo for the series finale. That’s pretty much our sentiment for One Tree Hill. Tonight, everyone will gather for Tric’s tenth anniversary and Julian’s television show based on Tree Hill gets rolling. And, based on the video preview, Brooke will officially go home and become the girl behind the red door once again.
