  • I can’t decide if the title is poetic or creepy or sad or all three.
  • Starting with Simon and Garfunkel’s Sound of Silence. Old-school.
  • Q1: Someone once said that death is not the greatest loss in life. Death is what dies inside of us when someone else does. I could tell you who said it but who the hell really cares?–Haley

  • Haley is on the phone.

  • She says we tell ourselves we’re going to be okay but it’s not okay.

holy crap for a moment there i was like what the heck is going on with katie is she really sarah?!
*wipes forehead… sorry just had to get that off my chest

WOW is all I can say about Gossip Girl tonight!!
This episode was so amazing and felt like season 1 of GG.
Serena and Jenny are really pissing me off though and I wish Vanessa was apart of the drama tonight 😦

10 05 2010

I’m so excitied for the season finale. I agree with Wes, it feels like season 1 again! Although, I really, really cannot stand Jenny.

10 05 2010

the victoria/brooke scene made it feel like they were wrapping up the show… kinda nervous.

11 05 2010
Joe and Sara

Omg is all i can say. This episode of gossip girl was great!!! Probably the best of the season.Season 1 quality throughout. There was no Vanessa even:) This episode really made me excited for the finale!!!

11 05 2010

Have some OTH things I need to get off my mind: I was pleased to see a Brathan scene but I was disappointed we didn’t really get a Baley scene. The Victoria-Haley one seemed a bit random and I wish they gave it deeper meaning. My idea: Victoria could’ve told Haley she’s familiar with grieving like this because she lost a child when Brooke was very young. She could advise Haley that she still has her child but risks losing him forever by her behavior. Victoria’s story would be a surprise to Brooke, and give her some more insight as to why her mom was so MIA as she grew up and why her parents divorced. It would also allow Brooke to get back into the very serious issue of not being able to have kids. I think that would’ve worked a lot better. The way it was done, it didn’t show me how much Victoria has grown as a maternal figure, which I’m assuming it was the point. Rather, it showed me how strongly they were trying to substitute her for Karen, who in past seasons would’ve been the person to have that conversation with Haley (and who would’ve made sense not just because of her relationship with Haley but also because of her experiences post-Keith’s death).

The Brooke-Victoria scene was nice but weird. It really felt like a series finale scene and kind of a repeat of their scene in last year’s season finale.

I hope Clay is a bit shaken by the Katie/Sara stuff. I don’t want to see him going back to being lovey-dovey with Quinn right away. He was so devastated by losing his wife and this had to bring it all back for him. In fact, I much rather see (and would much more easily believe) him going into a depression from this than I do Haley’s storyline.

I knew it would be Lydia’s cell phone that Haley was calling, as many fans guessed it more than a week ago. (Also, Nathan didn’t know his mother-in-law had a cell phone? He had to ask Quinn? Shows how close they really were). But a part of me what hoping Hoping HOPING it would be Lucas or Peyton on the other end. Now that would’ve been a great twist!

Grubbs and Miranda have no business in being in this episode (or most of the episodes they’ve appeared in). I understand Mark wants to help Grubbs out but please do it in a webseries…or not at all. The same can be said for Mia and Chase, though I know where they’re going with Chase so I can cut them some slack for tonight’s scenes. But if there’s no addressing of Chase and Brooke’s past when Chase and Alex move forward, that will be a big fail for me.

Moving on to Gossip Girl, I liked that there was one general storyline tonight that had all the characters interacting, rather than several disconnected storylines going on. I was glad to get such a quick resolution to the William mystery and I thought it was interesting. I suppose Lily’s reactions to Rufus these past few episodes were because she wasn’t in the right frame of mind due to William’s crappy medicine but I highly doubt, if the situation was reversed, she’d be okay with Allison coming back to town to reclaim Rufus and her kids. And the two sides of my poor shipper heart are pulling in different directions right now. Dan or Nate? Nate or Dan? Other than that, I don’t really have anything else to say right now. You guys seemed to think it was an amazing, season one-like episode. What about it seemed like season one to you?

11 05 2010

OTH: EH. The Clay/Katie thing was really boring. They did all that psycho drama before making it seem like it was leading up to something big. But it was over so quickly. Dont see what the point of having Mia return was. I really dont want to see Alex & Chase. Grubbs and Miranda are lame. What is their purpose? No one likes them!! And the Haley talking to her mom thing–wtf? How is her mom’s cell phone still in service?? Who would be paying her bill? That’s really stupid… GG:? I loved this episode!!! Im not even a huge fan but I really liked this one. I loved seeing Serena and Dan talking at the end. Dan is such a good guy. That Rufus being set up thing was silly…ugh. I, just like a lot of people these days, am really tired of Jenny. But I do see something interesting happening to her later on. Did she seriously go to Nates house?? Ugh. Though that happened, Im pretty sure she loses her virginity to Chuck soon. OMG, thats disgusting. But it would get a lot of strong reactions.

11 05 2010

LXR: It seems to me that the Katie thing is still leading up to something big. Don’t forget, both Psycho Derek and Nanny Carrie were written out and then made returns. As far as I can tell, the point of Mia’s return was for her break up with Chase, which sets up Chase and Alex. And I would say Grubbs’ purpose is really just to promote the real-life Grubbs’ music. That is a great point about Lydia’s cell phone. I hadn’t thought about that but now that I do, it is fairly stupid. It makes me wonder where the rest of Lydia’s belongings are…and that makes me wonder about the rest of the MIA siblings who were, well, MIA during the dying/death stuff and remain MIA as their sister hangs on to her sanity by a thread. Frustrates me. I am intrigued by the last three lines of your comment (regarding Chuck and Jenny) and have some thoughts but I rather not talk about that in a non-spoiler thread. =)

11 05 2010

I have to agree with your earlier post. Nate or Dan? I was really fed up with Dan in season two, and even for most of this season, but this past episode really changed my mind. I’ve been a Serena/Nate fan forever, but Dan was amazing in this episode. I like him a lot better when he’s working with Chuck, Blair, and Nate than when he’s off in Brooklyn with Vanessa. Most of the time it feels like he’s not even involved with the rest of the cast.

And about One Tree Hill, I miss the way it used to be, back in the high school years. It seemed more…at the risk of sounding cliche, meaningful then. I feel that we’ve been overrun with so many new characters, it lost it’s old touch, like what you guy’s have been saying about Brooke/Haley/Nathan scenes. In the older seasons, it was always the five of them, and now you barely ever see Brooke with Haley, Nathan, or Jamie, and it seems as if they’ve replaced the older cast, like Karen with Victoria, Peyton and Lucas with Quinn and Clay, and Grubb’s and Miranda are just so….random.

11 05 2010

I’ve wanted Nate and Serena explored since the beginning of the show but I was also a big Dan-Serena fan. So I kind of loved the end of last night’s episode and I’m curious to see how I’ll feel next week (and next season).

I loved season 5 and 6 of OTH (non-high school) as much as I loved the past seasons, maybe even more. Up until this season, season 2 was always the worst in my mind but now I love it and see so much greatness in it compared to what we’re getting now. This is not just a bad season, in my opinion. It’s not the same show anymore. Throughout all of BH90210’s casting changes–and I know some will disagree with this–it always felt like the same show to me throughout. Not so here.

12 05 2010

I didn’t watched OTH this week, but as for why I think Gossip Girl was like season 1?

Well, first off Dan felt like part of the cast again. I have loved his recent interactions with Blair, but other than that it has just been him and Vanessa and before that Olivia. I feel like there has been so much wasted potential with his character. I’m not a big Darena fan, but I think now that Nate and Dan are friends this triangle has the potential to be interesting. Although, it bugged me the way Nate called the police and Dan was the shoulder to lean on. It just didn’t fit their characters. Dan was always the moral center and Nate would have been the one that just sat idly by and watched everything go down. Not saying that’s a good thing for Nate not to take charge, but that was not really like his character.

It also felt like season 1 because the whole cast was together and shared a common goal. Sometimes it feels like we are watching several different disjointed shows. I love epsiodes like this that remind us they are all connected.

I’m really looking forward to the finale. I’ve read ALL the spoilers and I’m so pumped for the drama. I can’t even believe some of the stuff I’ve read. The writers are doing some risky things that I think will pay off especially their plans for next season 🙂

12 05 2010

Alyssa, thanks for your thoughts on how it was like season one. I, too, am intrigued by the spoilers (not so much by what I’ve heard for next season) and am anxious for next week to arrive!

13 05 2010

What a nice conversation! Shari, I too was happy about the Brathan scene but was looking forward to the Baley scene. Hopefully we’ll get one in 722. Loved your idea about Victoria and agree that it would have given her non-relationship with Brooke some new insight. I also agree that she was being used as a substitute for Karen, just as Deb was in S6 with Brooke when she was attacked. Although both were good scenes, IMO there is no substitute for Karen, but it was nice to see a parental figure in both instances.

I was also hoping that Haley was talking to Lucas on the phone, but knew it was her Mom, and LXR good catch on the cell phone still being turned on! I guess we can write off Haley’s other siblings, but it would have been nice to have Taylor in on Haley’s depression.

I am fine with Mia/Chase, but Grubbs/Miranda were a big waste of screen time, IMO. I Like his music though.

Kate, I loved your comment about the older seasons being more meaningful and that is how I think of them as well. There is nothing like the core five plus Mouth and Skills, and I really have not gotten into these new characters this season, and not for lack of trying.

Finally, Shari I so agree with what you said about BH90210. No matter what the casting changes were, the show always seemed to remain the same and I never got the detached feeling with it as I have with OTH this season. If you listen to some, it is not supposed to be the same show anymore as the characters have all aged and grown and moved on. But they did so in BH as well, without changing the show we grew to love.

15 05 2010

Vicki: I heard there was a Baley scene planned or filmed but it was cut. Whether that’s actually true or not, I don’t know.

Deb would’ve made a lot more sense than Victoria, obviously because of her familial relationship with Haley but also because Deb, too, has had–let’s say–health issues. I thought, however, Deb made more sense than Karen with Brooke in season 6 because Brooke didn’t want to be comforted, which is what Karen would’ve tried to do. She wanted a gun and a revenge, and she knew Deb could help her get one, which would potentially lead to the other.

I certainly echo your sentiments about not being able to get into the new characters despite a fair effort and feeling detached from the show. And I think you hit the nail on the head with BH90210 casting changes vs. OTH casting changes.
