  • In response to a fan question about Lucas (Chad Michael Murray, One Tree Hill) and Peyton (Hilarie Burton, One Tree Hill) returning, Sophia Bush (Brooke, One Tree Hill) tweeted, “Doesn’t look that way guys,” and later tweeted again (along with spoilish answers to some others questions) “LOOKS like no Peyton/Luke.” As far as where Leyton are, Bush tweeted, “They moved to Australia with their baby, to live with Karen and Andy :)” before correcting herself later by saying that it’s actually New Zealand. And Bush tweeted again later on, after being asked whether she misses the characters, “I’m so happy for them to have gotten what they want in real life, so I’m OK with it. People have to do what’s best for them!”

Favorite Valentine’s Day Episodes, Pt. 5

14 02 2010

WEDNESDAY: Beverly Hills 90210

THURSDAY: Dawson’s Creek

FRIDAY: The O.C.

SATURDAY: One Tree Hill

TODAY: Gossip Girl and 90210

GOSSIP GIRL

Like One Tree Hill, Gossip Girl hasn’t given us any Valentine’s Day episodes. In both seasons 1 and 2, the show was on hiatus during the holiday and that’s true for this season as well. There’s always next year, right?

90210

1. Episode 1.16, Of Heartbreaks And Hotels

Truth be told, I forgot there was a Valentine’s Day episode until some commenters on this very site reminded me a few months ago. (Thanks, guys!) While it’s heartbreaks for Annie when Ethan chooses to spend time with Rhonda (yawn), it’s hotels for Silver and Dixon, who consummate their relationship not just with sex but also a tattoo. Adrianna and Navid do the “I swear I don’t have feelings for you but actually I really do” dance as Navid struggles to accept that recovering addict Ade is pregnant with some dude’s baby. But he comes around, pulling out the “you’re a mess but will you be my Valentine?” card. And, of course, this is the first time we meet Liam, with the first of many sexually-charged conversations between him and Naomi.

Teen dramas and Valentine’s Day. I thought this series would be a no-brainer! But as you’ve seen over the last few days, two shows didn’t even have V-Day episodes, others had slim pickings and just one–Beverly Hills 90210–rocked it out (seriously, I didn’t even include all of their eps!).

So what’s you favorite Valentine’s Day episode? If you can’t pick but want to do some more V-Day celebrating, take a look back at some of my other love-infused series: Favorite Couples, Real-Life Relationships, Romantic Scenes and Sexiest Moments.
