This was yet another wonderful One Tree Hill finale. As I write this we are 19 hours away from the series finale and I've got to say as much as I loved this episode I am really glad it wasn't the end. I'm glad we got 13 more episodes to spend with these people. 13 episodes for them to blow my mind and break my heart and bring me tears. 13 episodes for Mark to work his magic and give us one final season of greatness.
I absolutely loved the reopening of Karen's Cafe. It was just so perfect to bring it back after all this time. I love Haley's song with the quote from the sign in the lyrics. And that beautiful Scott family moment when Nathan came home and sat on Jamie's bed with Lydia and Haley came in was perfect.
I am so happy for Brooke and Julian. She finally got not one, but two beautiful babies. It felt a bit rushed going through her whole pregnancy in this one episode, but I loved that we got to see it instead of just leaving us with she is pregnant in case the show didn't come back. And of course one boy is named Davis after her last name which is the Tree Hill way of doing things. I would love to know why she picked Jude though.
I love Mouth and Millie's show. They work so well together and I was sick of unemployed Mouth. And I love Jana Kramer's new song that played when she was appearing on their show.
It's so great that things are going strong with Nathan and Clay for Fortitude. And I loved that Nathan went to see Dan. He didn't forgive him, but he gave him a couple small mementos of his grandchildren which I thought was very sweet.
I loved the Jamie and Madison stuff, too. I loved the symbolism they threw in of her replacing the red heart shoelace Jamie gave her with a black one when he blew her off to be his other friends. It was a very Lucas/Brooke season 3 painting the door kind of moment & I liked that. I also really liked Jamie's voiceover again with him reading to Lydia. And when he left the cafe and bounced the ball across the bridge like Lucas with the sweatshirt was perfect. I loved it!
