  • Now that's a season ending!

    Now that's a season ending!

    So good it could have been a series ending.
  • Should've been the end of the series.

    This should have been the ending. It's the perfect ending. The gang celebrates their last day as high school students by having a big party. Dan does the right thing by turning himself in. Karen has a dream she's with Keith and their daughter. This helps Karen wake up. Haley and Nathan become parents for the first time with the birth of their son James Lucas Scott aka Jamie. Chase and Brooke go all the way. Peyton and Lucas talk about Peyton going to Los Angeles. Rachel returns. Karen confronts Dan about killing Keith. It's a very powerful scene. Because of Dan history has to repeat itself. Dan tries to kill himself and it's also a powerful scene. The gang plays one last game together on the River Court. It's similar to the one on one Lucas and Nathan shared in the Pilot, but unlike that one on one this one is all love and respect. The gang promises to meet back at the RC in 4 years.

    The ending still makes me cry. This episode makes you cry and laugh. This is the series finale for me. I enjoyed S5, but it still didn't have the heart and soul that the first 4 seasons had. I hated S6 and disliked S7. I didn't watch S8 and S9. I did watch "Danny Boy" & "One Tree Hill" from S9. The best thing about the later seasons is Dan's redemption. Dan has always been a great character and Paul owned that role.

    It's hilarious how Karen and Haley got their post baby bodies back in two weeks. There's also a funny scene where Peyton tells Lucas, she's going to love him forever, then NH show up. That's a Naley thing. Nathan told Haley that in TDKOL. Peyton isn't as smooth as Nathan Scott. And Leyton just isn't Naley. It was a clever bit. I always thought Mouth was an annoying little b**ch. I don't understand how people were able to put up with him for 8 seasons. He was barely in S1 and it should have stayed that way. I know people liked Rachel, but she also annoyed me. I could never get with Karen and Keith as a romantic couple.moreless
  • Perfect :)

    I have just something to say..

    'This was a perfect ending for a perfect season'

    Season 4 is my absolute favourite, loved every moment of it :D

  • Perfect end to the teen years.

    Sometimes, sappiness and happy endings works - All of a Sudden I Miss Everyone was one of those times.

    Watching these characters say their goodbyes was touching and sad, but really entertaining too. And they really pulled at viewers heart strings. Peyton and Lucas vow to be together despite going their separate ways. Brooke and Chase do the same. Haley and Nathan look after their son and plan for the future. Rachel returns and Mouth finally man's up if you will.

    The ending scene at the river court was particularly well done and moving, watching them all have fun on their last night was the perfect ending. The spice girls dance was random but quite funny. Dan's suicide attempt was shocking but the conclusion was deserved. I loved what Karen said to him about Keith - very powerful stuff.

    And they agree to return to the river court in four years - the set up for the next five seasons. This is the cut-off point for Tree Hill - it easily could have ended here and it would of been satisfying. But then we wouldn't get the next series...but is that a bad thing? Re-watching will be the judge of that.

    Perfect end to the teenage of years of One Tree Hill.

  • Season 4 Finale

    High school is over and everyone is preparing to go their separate ways, but first Karen faces a health crisis and Haley gives birthday to her and Nathan's son. Also, Dan turns himself in for Keith's murder!

    I loved seeing Keith in Karen's dream or whatever it was. It was great getting to see him again and see them together. I love that he inspired the name of their daughter. Lily, is so pretty and I love the name. too. I loved the moment when Nathan and Lucas meet in the hospital before they go into the rooms with Karen and Haley. That hug was perfect. It was so sweet. And I love the name they chose. Welcome to the world, James Lucas Scott!!

    And then we have 2 weeks later. The babies and their moms are home and doing well. There is a party to celebrate the end of the school year for the graduating seniors and the juniors who will become seniors when the school computers update and change to make them seniors.

    This really was a nice, fun way to end the high school years of One Tree Hill. With the four year jump coming up it was nice to give the characters and the stories sort of an ending so that when we meet the new versions of them four years older we can start fresh with new stories.

    It was cool having Rachel back and having Brooke give her the diploma. That was sweet. I also loved Lucas and Peyton having their moment by the lake. Brooke and Lucas are perfect to be the God parents for James Lucas Scott. Brooke has become another best friend to Haley and Lucas has always been there for her and he is also the kid's uncle so it works.

    It's so great that Lucas is going to be an assistant coach for Whitey. It will be great to have Nathan, Lucas, and Whitey together again on a basketball team.

    Mouth kissing Brooke was priceless!! Hands down one of the funniest moments of the series!! I've been waiting for something to happen with them for a long time!! And Chase is no longer a Clean Teen...he lost his virginity to Brooke Davis.

    It was so perfect for Karen to approach Dan like that. She is angry and has every right to be!! And once again Dan could have died when he tried to hang himself, but of course it's Dan Scott so he doesn't die.

    I love that they ended the episode at the River Court!! Signing their names was so cool!! I love that they ended the episode with a one-on-one game with Nathan and Lucas. It was the best way to end the season, the high school era, and what could have possibly been the end of the series. Great episode and great season!!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (16)

    • Goof: When Haley is at the party and dancing with the other girls to "Wannabe" by the Spice Girls, her shoes alternate between white sneakers and pumps as the camera angle changes.

    • During the first 2 minutes and 45 seconds (more or less), there's no sound, except for the music.

    • When the gang goes to the River Court, Brooke tries to hit the basket with the ball, but you see that after she throws the ball, the shot is edited to make it look she actually hit it. Yet it's a shot where another shot is overlaid with it.

    • When Mouth is talking to Shelley, he tells her the reason he didn't call or see her is that she asked him not to, but in "Prom Night at Hater High" he calls Shelley the day after the party when they had sex and she said not to call her.

    • Possible goof: James Lucas Scott is born on graduation day which is most likely in the first few weeks of June. This means Haley would have become pregnant near the end of August or the beginning of September (which is when school should have started) and Nathan and Haley were barely speaking then so how is this possible?

    • Since James Lucas Scott was born on graduation day (probably some time in June) than the day of the shooting (which was in January if you notice the date of death of Keith and Jimmy's tombstones when Lucas looks at them) than Haley would have been a few months pregnant already and given her size, probably showing already.

    • When Haley leaves in the ambulance with Nathan, Lucas gets a call from Deb. At the hospital, Karen is rolling into a room and Lucas is there. Haley is rolled into a room and Nathan is there, but how would Lucas get there before or at the same time as Nathan if Lucas only drove a car and Nathan was in an ambulance? Plus, Lucas got the call after the ambulance left.

    • Throughout the episode we can see Haley's hair and bangs being a little curly.. But in some scenes although it is up we notice that it is more straight and her bangs too.. At the end of the episode when they all go to the rivercourt it is again a little curly!..

    • Spoiler alert!:
      There's a lot of references to the pilot episode:
      -The episode ends with a still shot of Nathan and Lucas, playing one-on-one on the Rivercourt, similar to the same last shot in that episode.

      -When Nathan mentions having a rematch to Lucas, he referring to when Lucas beat him in a one on one game, allowing Lucas to join the Ravens basketball team (To add, he was actually referring to "From The Edge Of The Deep Green Sea", when they played for their friendship, and Nathan won 11-0. That's why he said "Scared you're gonna get worked?").

      -The following conversation:
      (Lucas is checking Peyton's car)
      Lucas: You've got to be kidding me. Again?
      Peyton: I guess.
      Lucas: Huh. Doesn't look like anything's wrong. You sure it won't start? Peyton?
      Peyton: Oh, the car is fine. I was just feeling sentimental about the first time we spoke.

    • The basketball game Nathan is "watching" in the beginning of the episode, when he's holding James, is Duke vs Stanford. These are the colleges that Nathan and Haley planned to go in season three (Nathan to Duke and Haley to Stanford)

    • When all the girls are doing the dance routine to "Wannabe," Haley is seen wearing the pink high heels she was wearing throughout the episode, but then she is seen wearing white sneakers.

    • Most of the episode plays 2 weeks after the events in the hospital, yet Lucas and Nathan are exchanging baby pictures and react like they haven't seen them before. It's very unrealistic that with them all being so close to each other that Lucas wouldn't have visited his new nephew his brother or his best friend/sister-in-law, and that Nathan wouldn't have visited his new cousin yet.

    • When they are counting down to being out of high school, the count down gets to 4 or 5 and starts all over again.

    • Dan's prison cell is number 128. It's the same as Psycho Derek/Ian's in "Ashes Of Dreams You Let Die".

    • All the girls knew the dance routine to "Wannabe," and yet none of them had ever practiced it, it wasn't a cheer routine (Shelly wasn't on cheer), and it wasn't an actual Spice Girls routine.

    • Rachel's middle name is Virginia.

  • QUOTES (26)

    • Lucas: I say we move on. Let's never go see Dan... ever.
      Nathan: You know, this may sound kind of mean, but I'm okay with that. I mean, I got a great wife, I got a beautiful baby son, and I got a hell of a brother.
      Lucas: Yeah, a hell of a brother who's gonna be your coach.
      (Nathan gives him a confused look).
      Lucas: Whitey offered me an assistant coaching job. I'm gonna take it.
      Nathan: What? When did you decide this?
      Lucas: About the same time I found out I was a godfather.
      Nathan: That's great, man. We'll do it together.
      Lucas: By the way, make sure you play well on December 9. If Skills beats us, we're never gonna hear the end of it.
      Nathan: (Laughing) Yeah.

    • Lucas: (to Peyton) I want you to stay but I won't let you. Do you know why? Because I told you before... You're destinated for greatness and it starts tomorrow morning.

    • Lucas: (Referring to James) Handsome, just like his uncle.

    • Brooke: (reading from an excerpt from Lucas's book): She was fiercely independent, Brooke Davis. Brilliant, and beautiful, and brave. In two years she had grown more than anyone I had ever known. Brooke Davis is going to change the world someday. I'm not sure she even knows it.

    • Brooke: (reading Haley's valedictorian speech) Now is the time for us to shine. The time where our dreams are within reach and possibilities vast.

    • Keith: (to Karen in her heavenly dream) Look for me in the lilies.

    • Mouth: (to the guy bothering Shelly) What did you say?
      Shelly: Mouth, it's okay.
      Mouth: No it's not okay.
      Guy: Oh no? Whatever geek!
      (pushes Mouth who falls down)
      Shelly: (to guy) What are you doing?!
      Guy: (laughing) Can you believe this? (Mouth stands up). You know I was gonna take it easy.... (interrupted by Mouth's sudden punch in the jaw)
      Mouth: Yeah, me too.
      (to an astonished Shelly) He's sorry, you look pretty.

    • Nathan: (to Haley) You're going to be a great mom, you know that? Actually you already are a great mother, and that's very sexy.

    • Haley: (To her newborn baby) Welcome to the world James Lucas Scott.

    • Mouth: Good evening ladies and gentlemen and welcome to another historic night.

    • (Nathan is showing off a picture of James to Reece and two other girls. Haley comes up behind them.)
      Reece: Oh my gosh Nathan your baby is so beautiful.
      Nathan: He is, isn't he?
      Haley: Hi, sorry can we just have a second.
      Reece: Congratulations.
      Haley: Thank you Reece.
      (The three girls leave.)
      Haley: Um, we need to go home.
      Nathan: Why, what is it?
      Haley: Because I know we promised we wouldn't do this but I called just to check in on the baby and Deb's not answering the phone, there's no busy signal, there's no answering machine and she's not answering her cell phone either.
      Nathan: Ok ok, let's not freak out ok? It doesn't mean my mom's not on top of it.
      Haley: Your mom the former drug addict, attempted murder who dropped a loaded gun in the café?
      Nathan: Wouldn't hurt to check.
      Haley: Right.

    • Deb: (to Nathan and Haley) You have the rest of your lives to worry about children. Trust me.

    • Haley: Ok, we'll have fun. I'm just saying maybe I should give Deb one quick call just to check in.
      Nathan: Hales, come on. I miss the boy too but we're not going to be those crazy obsessive parents, alright?

    • Deb: The two of you are driving us crazy.
      Haley: The two of us?
      Nathan: I might have called a couple of times.
      Deb: (to Nathan) 6 times.
      Haley: You crazy obsessive parent.
      Deb: (to Haley) You called 8.

    • Deb: Go. I'll watch him.
      Haley: Oh, I don't know.
      Nathan: We're under aged mom. And there's going to be drinking, alcohol, probably some drugs.
      (Nathan and Haley both smile.)
      Deb: You're going to the party and you're going to have fun. We insist. Now go. Bring me home some drugs. (Laughs as she leaves.) Isn't grandma funny?

    • Nathan: So you know there's a big party tonight, kind of like a last hurrah for all the seniors?
      Haley: Yeah I know, but what are we going to do with the baby?
      Deb: Cue the crazy grandmother.

    • Skills: (sings) If you wanna be my lover you got to get with my friends an- (sees Lucas) What? It's catchy.
      Lucas: Uhu.
      Skills: You know, my place ain't gonna be too far from USC. We're gonna be boys for life.
      Lucas: Hey, do you guys play Nathan and Whitey this season?
      Skills: Um... December 9 at 3:00. And I plan to score at 3:01, 3:02, and 3:03. You gonna be there, right?
      Lucas: We'll see.
      Skills: "We'll see"? You know what, kill all that "boys for life" stuff, dog. As a matter of fact, we ain't even friends right now.
      Lucas: (Laughing) Right.

    • Chase: (to Brooke) Be gentle with me.

    • (Bevin is doing a kegstand)
      Skills: Drink baby, drink.
      Bevin: I don't want to drink. I just wanted to be upside down.

    • (Karen and Keith are kissing)
      Lily: YUCK!

    • Peyton: All right, let me see that baby.
      (Nathan takes out the picture of James he's been showing off all night and hands it to her.)
      Peyton: Oh God.
      Nathan: Not bad huh?
      Peyton: Good work buddy.
      Nathan Points to the picture.: I made that.

    • (Mouth kisses Brooke)
      Mouth: I always wanted to do that.
      Mouth: (passes by Chase) Sorry man.
      (Brooke looks shocked)
      Chase: I said you could hang out not make-out.
      Brooke: See what happens when you leave me alone all night.

    • (at the police station)
      Dan: My name is Dan Scott. I killed my brother.

    • Peyton: Hey, you, what have you been up too?
      Brooke: (jokingly) Flirting with Lucas.
      Peyton: Oh, yeah? How'd that turn out?
      Brooke: Eh, so so. You know love triangles are so high school.
      Peyton: Seriously.
      Brooke: We made it, didn't we? Through all the tragedy and jealousy and confusion. We made it.
      Peyton: Yea, hoes over bros, right?
      Brooke: I love you, P. Sawyer.
      (they hug)
