The other dramatic crux of season four is Lucas’s discovery that Dan murdered Keith. From the start, made it so easy to fall in love with all its characters, which is why it’s easy to navigate the sillier parts of the show.He does this whilst in a “It’s a Wonderful Life” coma dream. The Dan stuff does seem to drag on, especially since we’ve known all along that he’s guilty, but I’d go through it all again for the scenes when Nathan realizes that his father is a monster and confronts him. And sure, all the Clean Teen drama is hard to get into, and we learn a lot about point shaving in high-school basketball, but overall, knew what kind of show it wanted to be. We put up with the psychos and the Eastern European mafiosos and the Slamball because we’ve been endeared to these people since day one. The show is really firing on all cylinders from start to end.The other shining beacon in season eight is “Darkness on the Edge of Town,” a dramatic episode set during a Tree Hill hurricane.Quinn fights off her psycho stalker one last time, and Brooke and Jamie almost drown after their car goes over a bridge (Tree Hill, work on your bridge safety, would you? The moments throughout the rest of the season in which Nathan and Julian try to figure out what happened on the bridge that night are also compelling.And there’s a character named August with a dog named Dogust. makes a very smart move with season five: The action jumps four years ahead, ensuring that we won’t have to deal with our Tree Hillians bringing their own brand of drama to college campuses across America. Instead, we catch up with the gang post-college, when all the actors are finally playing characters their own age, as Lucas, Peyton, Brooke, Haley, and Nathan are all thrust into the real world.This time jump doesn’t come without its own hindrances, though.
Could a high-school soap opera be summed up in one scene any better than that? Sure, the acting leaves something to be desired, and some of the story lines err very close to teen show clichés, but both the kids and the show grow into it.
On the plus side, we get to witness Lucas and Peyton try to pretend they aren’t soulmates, Nathan try to pretend he’s totally cool with his depression beard, and the audience pretend like we didn’t know Lucas and Lindsey’s (Michaela Mc Manus) wedding would be a disaster.
Lucas’s book is called was right to introduce a gay character (the show fails in representation of both sexual orientation and race), but Felix and his closeted sister Anna (Daniella Alonso) were not the best way to do it, especially since they scrap the whole thing pretty quickly and send the siblings off into the sunset.
Just kidding, that is also terrible, no matter how cute that Logan kid is.
had to prove it could exist without Lucas and Peyton as its anchors. New characters Clay and Quinn (Shantel Van Santen) are serviceable, but the first half of the season is a drag as Nathan is embroiled in an NBA sex scandal.
