|^Lol, no I couldnt agree more. There were a few things that have happened in the adult characters' past that didnt make that much sense to me. Like Karen being a cheerleader, let alone head cheerleader. I saw her more as a Haley type, sitting on the sidelines mocking the cheerleaders, not joining in. And yes I know Haley was a cheerleader but by then Haley had changed anyway, she wanted to be closer to Nathan and needed to help Brooke out. Karen I felt was more like Haley in s1 than Haley in s3. I could see someone more like Sheri, Tim's step mom, as a cheerleader. I kind of felt like they needed Karen to be a cheerleader to explain why she would go out with Dan, but it never seemed THAT likely to me. Thats why I kind of wished that she became friends with Keith first, who was sort of like her Lucas, but then ended up dating Dan, who was like her Nathan. And thats why it makes it more poignant that Nathan changed for the better for his "Karen" even though Dan couldnt. Maybe she joined senior year, like Haley, and then started going out with Dan, as well LOL|
I understand. And i ageee that it doesn't make sense that Karen was a cheerleader. I almost see her like a Haley were she started out being a "keep to myself" kind of person and then Karen met Dan and things changed and she became a cheerleader. Am i missing something...we don't know how Karen and Dan met right? I always wanted to know that because with Haley she was that keep to myself girl and then after she met Nathan and was married to him, she changed into the "popular cheerleader" type (s3, S4 haley) because she was with the star basketball player. Even though she really wasn't that type. You didn't really see that change in her in season 2 even though you knew she already had that label of "popular" because of being with Nathan. But my point is...lol. Maybe with Karen it the same type of scenario. Maybe thats why Sherri hated karen so much. lol I have always seen Sherri (tims mom) as a b!tchy early day Brooke. and she was maybe threated by her in high school. always seen her as so nasty to Karen as adults because she never got over high school.
