Fun Fact

4 07 2010

There’s been some sort of car accident in every One Tree Hill season thus far except for season 7.

In Episode 1.13, Hanging By A Moment, Keith, who had been drinking earlier on, makes a left turn while he’s at a red light, crashing into an oncoming car, while Lucas is in his passenger seat.

Nathan was trying his hand at race car driving in Episode 2.19, I’m Wide Awake, It’s Morning, when he spun out and was seemingly unable to stop the car until it crashed into a wall and stopped itself.

In the season 3 finale, Episode 3.22, The Show Must Go On, Nathan and Haley are headed to the airport for their honeymoon when a swerving limousine, with Cooper at the steering wheel but Rachel interfering, comes from the opposite direction.  Nathan and Haley manage to safely swerve out of the way and screech to a halt just in time, but Cooper and Rachel crash through a wooden railing and into the water below.

After celebrating the Ravens’ win at the state championship basketball game in Episode 4.09, Some You Give Away, Haley and Nathan head out into the street. As they talk, a car driven by Dante comes speeding towards then. Haley pushes Nathan out of the way, and the car strikes her.

In the season 5 finale, Episode 5.18, What Comes After The Blues, Dan helps an elderly couple cross the street, warning them (something to the effect of) if they’re not careful, they might–Before he can finish, he is hit by a car later revealed to have been driven by Carrie.

The last car accident thus far occurs in Episode 6.20, I Would For You, while a pregnant Peyton drives The Comet. As she starts into an intersection after her light turns green, a driver on her right runs the red light and plows into her.

As I said above, season 7 did not feature any car accidents. Any theories as to why?

Get Ready for One Tree Hill Season 7!

12 09 2009

We’re days away from One Tree Hill’s season 7 premiere!

Here’s what you need to know about last season:

After season 5 ended with a massive cliff-hanger–which girl did Lucas ask to marry him?–it is revealed that Peyton is the one Luke called and they travel to Las Vegas to get married. Realizing they want their friends and family to witness the nuptials, Leyton returns to Tree Hill where they move in together.  A few months later, Peyton finds out she’s pregnant but soon suffers complications.  The duo decide to follow the motto of carpe diem and pull-off a last-minute wedding.  The wedding night takes a disastrous turn when Peyton suffers yet another pregnancy complication but it leads to the birth of the beautiful and healthy Sawyer Brooke Scott.  We last see a happy Leyton and baby Sawyer driving in The Comet..

Earlier in the season, Lucas is ecstatic when he finds out An Unkindness of Ravens will be made into a movie.  He’s thrown for a loop, however, when the producer ends up being Peyton’s ex, Julian Baker.  Julian decides not to cause any trouble with Leyton and instead works peacefully with Lucas on the film.  After finding a director and casting the lead roles, the film is shut down.

Peyton finds out who her birth father is but is unable to forge a relationship with him.  She continues to work with Mia (who starts dating Brooke’s ex, Chase) on her music career, and helps Haley resume hers.

Brooke gets off to a bumpy start when she is assualted one night at Clothes Over Bros.  Convinced her mother is responsible for the attack, the two drift further apart.  Brooke’s faith in herself and humanity is restored when she takes in Sam, one of Haley’s troubled young students.  The two adjust to living together and develop a mother-daughter dynamic, which comes to an end when Sam decides to live with her birth mother.

Throughout this, Brooke continues to find happiness in her love life.  She rejects Owen when he comes back to town, and reluctantly starts a relationship with Julian.  Despite his efforts to convince her how much he loves her, Brooke is apprehensive to commit.  In the finale, she mends her relationship with her mother and ultimately decides Julian is one the for her and goes to him to declare her love.

Haley, Nathan and Jamie find life as they know it disrupted when Quentin–Haley’s student, Nathan’s motivator and Jamie’s role model–is murdered.  Haley is fired from her job as a teacher at Tree Hill High after she refuses to censor one of Sam’s essays. Nathan, in an effort to make his way back to the NBA, plays Slamball before realizing it is too dangerous for him.  He joins a minor league team and, in the finale, is called up to the NBA as a member of the Charlotte Bobcats.  Jamie’s growing pains include dealing  a school bully and his first crush, finding out the truth about Grandpa Dan’s past and being nearly kidnapped by Nanny Carrie (again).

Dan faces struggles in almost every aspect of his life: he’s kidnapped and tortured by Nanny Carrie, his sons still refuse to have anything to do with him and his heart conditions worse.  Add on an explosive confrontation with ex-wife Deb, and it makes for one trying year in the life of Dan Scott.

Speaking of Deb, she breaks up with Skills who takes it badly and first but rebounds with Jamie’s teacher, Miss Lauren.

Mouth and Millicent take a big step and move in together, but their relationship progress is thrawted when Gigi coms back to town and tries to get with Mouth.  After some time apart, Mouth is able to win Millicent back and they resume their relationship.

The season ends with everyone (except for Dan, perhaps) in a state of happiness and satisfaction.

Come back tomorrow for an exclusive One Tree Hill interview and come back Monday night at 8pm eastern for a live-blog of the season 7 premiere!
