  • Forgetful.

    A little bit dull really. Every storyline isn't as interesting as it could be in Your Cheatin' Heart. Haley goes to jail and has really silly heart to heart with fellow jail-mates about Nathan. This was just stupid. I do love Haley and the fact that she's suspicious of Nathan now does up the stakes...but it's juts not good enough right now. And Dan getting involved in the Renee story is just irritating. I hate him this season.

    Clay and Quinn are kind of boring and I'm already SICK of David. Just leave town already. Alex getting closer to Julian is silly and he's just stupid to get involved. And it's all just silly drama to break up him and Brooke. Millie was a little more interesting but Mouth was a dick to her so I don't blame her for taking that modelling job.

    Everything else seems pretty forgetful...this season is too hit and miss.

  • Haley gets arrested

    After giving Renee a well deserved slap in the face Haley gets arrested, but Renee later drops the charges and asks Haley to check Nathan's phone records to prove her number is on there. I couldn't believe it when Haley check them and it actually was, but there has to be a logical reason.

    I really hate this storyline and I can't believe that after all this time and all they've been through Haley would question Nathan now. He would never cheat on her. He has had the opportunity, but never has so why would he start now.

    I feel so bad for Mouth. He did the right thing. This thing with Renee is not news, it's gossip and if he reports on then he makes it news and also looks like a bad friend since I'm sure most of his viewers know he is friends with Nathan.

    It's kind of awesome that Brooke wants Millie to model, but it can also be a dangerous thing if she gets in too deep.

    And once again Alex proved why I hate her and why she sucks.moreless
  • it was okay...

    I'd like to start off by saying that this season shouldn't even be in existence. One Tree Hill should have just ended with season six's season finale, with Lucas and Peyton driving off into the sunset with their newborn baby. That would have been absolutely amazing.

    B/C I'm not the biggest fan of this season. I don't care about Clay or Quinn. The only new character I like in Alex, even though it was quite awful of her to try and seduce Julian while working for Brooke. But... she's still a very interesting character.

    I HATE the Naley storyline. I hate it, I hate it, I hate it! Because we all know it's going to end up that the baby is, in fact, Nathan's, which will make everyone lose interest and stop caring about him, and he'll just become the next Dan. Good job One Tree Hill writers. You've screwed everythin' up. And, if you make it that he isn't the father, then there's not even really a point of having the storyline, now is here? Hmm... I think not.


    Well, TG for The Vampire Diaries!!moreless
  • Haley helps and defends Nathan but second guesses herself. Jamie is stuck in the middle (poor kid) Dan tries to help his son. Rachel discourages it and doesn't think it's a good idea.. (I hate to say this but for once she's right.!) Alex is annoying! erg.moreless

    Let me just say this I was thinking twice about watching tonight's episode but WOW! it was good! much better then the past 2 episodes. I have to admit though I do miss Deb any word on when or if she's coming back. Clay with Quinn.. didn't see that coming but I like that idea though Nathan is right on all levels with his opinion he has good points. I felt bad for Jamie in this episode poor kid is getting stuck in the middle of the scandle. I wish Deb would make an apparence and help out her son. As for Haley who would've thought getting arrested twice lol (she got arrested with Payton and Brooke in the 3rd season when she stole Brooke's designs back from the store that Brooke worked at!) lol you would think she would learn her lesson for fighting in public come on... that's just common sense! anyways much better than last week.. alot of action and really good action except for the Mouth/Millie stuff blehmoreless
  • It wasn't bad but something just isn't right...

    I don't really know what to make of this show anymore. This wasn't a bad episode but it was nothing compared to other shows. At the moment the only interesting story is the allegation that Nathan slept with that woman Renee - even this is quite a strange one because Haley now doesn't trust Nathan. I actually wanted that to happen but now I can't help but predict that Nathan didn't do anything. So why is this storyline there? I actually don't know. The end with Dan about to talk with Renee was a bit intriguing but not that much. Plus he and Rachel are beyond useless at the moment. The whole thing about Alex and Julian working together seems like a poor excuse for a was slightly entertaining but nothing to rave about.

    Millie becoming a model was alright...I admit I'm liking her more this season but I couldn't care less about her troubles with Mouth. Haley is by far the best character on the show. The jail scenes were quite amusing and I do feel for her. Quinn and Clay still aren't well developed characters and I'm not seeing any spark.

    I don't think One Tree Hill will ever be great again but I suppose it was never the best show around. The quality of the episodes just isn't cutting it and I hope the writers figure that out soon.moreless
