Wow! This definitely hearkened back to the old OTH. I’ve been saying they needed a reason to all be together. For that reason, part of me misses the old high school days. But this did just fine. So good to see some Baley moments. Good to see Skills and Mouth together. The Brooke, Julian, Jamie stuff was funny. So let’s get to it.
Haley’s storyline wrapped up beautifully. The scenes while she were in the pool were fantastic. Loved to see those moments again. Good to see she got some professional help. Loved the owl at the end and Jamie saying he loved to see her smile. All really great. And HOLY COW, she’s preggers!!! Naley’s getting another baby!!! So happy for them!
Brooke and Julian were so sweet tonight. I think we’ve all seen an engagement coming and I’m glad we have that settled. It was sweet and the ring was gorgeous. Wasn’t Brooke gorgeous in that premiere outfit. Wow! I really hope we get to see them get married. Not sure how they’ll do that without Peyton and Lucas but somehow I’d really love to see Brooke in a wedding dress and call Julian HUSBAND and not BOYFRIEND. Big round of applause for them tonight!
Alex and Josh were pretty funny together tonight. I really like Alex and hope she sticks around.
Mia and Grubbs had a nice ending. The song is gorgeous and I think it fit right in with what was going on with him.
Mia and Alex…I was really liking them together and kind of cringed when Chase got that text. Really hope that doesn’t string Mia and Chase along.
Good to see Mouth and Skills back together. Skills and that coat was hilarious. Mouth DANCING in that coat was hilarious. I LOVE to see Lee Norris dance! I’m gonna need some outtakes from that! Speaking of dancing, that line from Skills about Quinn dancing had Heather and I ROFL.
But how about we all talk about the huge cliffhanger? Quinn and Clay!!! First off, we all know that it’s been rough between Quinn and I. She’s slowly grown on me as a person through Season 7 but I’ve still never been a fan of Quinn and Clay together. So the whole first couple of scenes with them in bed and then her in basically nothing made me throw up in my mouth a little. Don’t get me wrong. Quinn is absolutely stunning. Stunning! I’d kill for a backside like that these days. But I just don’t get the two of them together. Now when Quinn went traipsing through the snow to the Pub? That was pretty hilarious. Especially Mouth and Skills reaction. Now as for the ending, was that not a shocker??? (well, except I’d read rumors it was happening but shhh) But I mean, they did not mess around with that! But here’s the thing…I did not cry at the end. If anyone else on OTH had been shot, I’d be devastated. I mean, they don’t usually kill off characters and when they do, it haunts me. Jimmy? Keith? Yep, traumatized! But ya’ll? I don’t want to be mean and insensitive but I’m not crying right now. If I am upset, I’m upset for Nathan and Haley and Jamie. I don’t want them going through any more drama. For that, I am very sad. But just in case anyone who’s anyone is listening, I’m ok if Quinn and Clay don’t come back. Even if they live through it and then have this be life-changing and they decide to leave Tree Hill to get away from Katie or the memories. Whatever. For the record, it’s ok with me. I’m very sorry to Quinn and Clay fans because I know you’re out there but I just can’t pretend that has me upset. But back to tonight’s episode I was definitely like Wow! What just happened?! What a way to end a season!!
OK, so here we are. We have no idea (well, some) whether there will be a Season 8. Brooke says you get the feeling it will all turn out happy but I don’t know, Quinn and Clay dying could shake things up pretty bad. In good news, we leave Nathan and Haley with a little girl, Brooke and Julian married, Mouth living it up with girls and still with Skills as his best friend, Alex healthy, Josh off to make peace with himself and family, Grubbs off on tour. I’d say they wrapped up most things with the exception of Quinn and Clay. I want to take this to mean they know we’re getting a Season 8 because I’m pretty sure the writers wouldn’t end it with such a huge cliffhanger. In that case, I’d like to see a time jump into Season 8 to Haley already having a little girl, possibly getting to see Brooke and Julian’s wedding. Who knows what else! I think it’s a great time to jump a little like OTH likes to do and give us a solid, short season with lots of drama. Tonight was a great episode and definitely left me wanting more OTH. I don’t know about you, but I’m not ready to give up on OTH yet. Can you imagine it never coming on again?? Whew, not me. Bring on Season 8!
