  • Stupid.

    Now, You've Dug Your Own Grave, Now Lie In It was silly. Mainly because of everything with Nanny Carrie and Dan.

    I just hate this storyline. It makes no sense, is stupid and is like some awfully written horror movie. I preferred Carrie when she was just the meddling Nanny not this crazy psycho. Her pathetic threats to Dan were obviously empty and I hated how Haley just believed everything and took Jamie there. It was also ridiculous how Carrie woke up twice after being 'killed' - way too OTT and I'm so glad this storyline is over. I was glad to see Deb be the one to stop her though - that was funny.

    Lucas visiting Lindsey felt unnecessary really and I didn't really care too much for it. Peyton thinking her father is Mick Wolf was okay but fairly predictable that he wouldn't turn up. Sucks too though cos she was so excited. Brooke and her therapist wasn't as interesting as before but I did like the return of Millie at the end. And her relationship with Sam is interesting - who's also homeless. Random. Nathan thinking he was getting a basketball job but instead it was coaching was a nice journey for him as a character.

    I think the writers thought this was a big episode - it was just silly really.

  • No more Nanny Carrie & No more Lindsey

    We have finally seen the last of that crazy psycho nanny. I'm so glad this storyline is over. I hated it. It was pretty intense at the end. And when the hand reached out and grabbed Jamie I was so scared it was her and then so relieved to see it was Haley. Deb hitting her in the face with that bottle was perfect. I was so glad that Dan killed her. At least now he is a murderer of someone I actually wanted dead.

    We have also seen the last of Lindsey. The Comet has been published and is ready for a book tour. I sort of feel bad for her the way she found out about Lucas and Peyton getting married, but she knows and now we don't have to deal with her anymore.

    It's a little random that Peyton's birth dad has just up and showed up in Tree Hill, but it's nice that she gets a chance to hear about Ellie and what she was like when she was younger.moreless
  • ...

    Ha ha ha... Oh, I don't even know whit what thing I need to start. lol. Ok, I'll start with this one - I really, really love this show, but this episode... I have no words. It was THE funniest, shortest and cheapest horror movie that I've ever seen. There was this tight balance between horror movie and comedy, but definitely it wasn't the One Tree Hill. Common, the dead person wakes up 2 times only in those cheap h/m. For nanny Carie definitely the best act of the year, maybe even she'll receive Emmy for the best act. lol. I'm kidding. But in fact I was in shock, watching this episode, especially about the scenes of Carrie... and Dan shot her.. TWICE.. and Deb's act with the bottle.. yeah.. I'm frustrated and I hope there won't be something like this again.moreless
  • Worst OTH episode ever

    This episode killed OTH for me. It was bad on so many levels, beyond ridiculous. An insult to everybody with a brain.

    The crazy Nanny story was the worst part. But the other story line didn't save the episode, because they were just boring and predictable. And you have the feeling you watched it all before. The writers seem to think we are all stupid.

    Why can't OTH have story line with normal people any more? Compare the last seaons to the first seasons. OTH changed a lot. I just don' like it anymore and this episode was the last straw. I am done with the show.moreless
  • Dumber than a slasher movie

    I was so disappointed with this episode. It was very predictable (except for when Deb-bottle-smash bit) which is something that One Tree Hill rarely is or rather used to be. The entire Nanny Carrie thing was stupider than a slasher movie. The Villian not dying and launching sudden attacks. I also did not understand why Dan would be standing outside alone with the body. Surely either Deb or Hayley would have waited with him until the police and ambulance turned up. I know no one is too fond of him but he was in pretty bad shape, it didnt make sense that they'd leave him there alone. It seems the writers have run out of ideas and are too lazy to put any thought into what they are doing.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • While talking to Mick, Peyton says that "The Joshua Tree" by U2 is one of her desert island albums. There is a song on "The Joshua Tree" titled "One Tree Hill". It's after that song that Schwann titled the show.

    • When Haley leaves a voice message on Nathan's voicemail, it's not the same one he hears when he checks it. She says something about Dan and Hospice and you don't hear that.

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Carrie: They say we leave this world just the way we came into it... naked and alone.
      Lucas: So if we do leave with nothing, what then is the measure of a life? Is it defined by the people we choose to love?
      Nathan: Or is life simply measured by our accomplishments?
      Brooke: And what if we fail, or have never truly loved? What then? Can we ever measure up?

    • Lindsey: I guess I was right all along about you and Peyton... but I wish you could have done this over the phone.

    • Lindsey: It's okay… You know the first time we met, right here… I told you I was pulling for the couple in the book.

    • Lucas: I never meant to hurt you... Not then, not now.
      Lindsey: I know. The thing is I saw it coming all along. I just tried to wish it away... it wasn't fair to me or to you.

    • Deb: Guess there's more than one crazy nanny in this town.

    • Peyton: Wow... who peed in your Cheerios?
