  • Q13: Yes, it’s bad! My mom is dying and I’m making soup! And I can’t stop it! Because nothing can stop it! There’s just so many moments that go with her when she dies. I don’t know the right questions to ask and I’m not ready. I’m just not ready for this.–Haley

  • Q17: I’m the donkey in a big stupid Shakespearean mix-up.–Brooke
  • Wow. So true! This is so Shakespearean tragi-comedy.
  • Brooke explains what happened with Alex/Alexander and how she screwed things up. I missed an awesome quote. Damn.

  • Brooke explains she came by last night and found her in Julian’s room and yada yada yada.
  • Q21: Whether you continue to push each other away or not, he knows what it’s like to really be in love. I never had a chance.–Alex
  • Brooke apologizes “for everything” and Alex does the same.
  • A new beginning for them? I kind of hope so. I would buy them as friends here on out. Like Brooke and Rachel did.
  • Brooke leaves. Alex cries.

  • Brooke walks on to the set, saying she know she’s banned but she wants to clear something up.

  • She explains what happened.
  • Q25: “So basically you still don’t trust me.” “No basically I got jealous because I’m in love with you and I always will be.”–Julian and Brooke
  • She explains her thinking: she was so afraid of Julian falling for Alex and then she thought that that indeed happen.

  • One is presumably of Haley and them at college graduation.
  • Lydia comments how she did everything right. Haley or someone says else says she did.
  • Then she presumably dies. Or fell asleep/drifted from consciousness. But you know show she died.
  • And it fades to black.
  • And now Haley and a bunch of people are dressed in black by a lake or something.
  • Haley dumps ashes into water.

  • Julian is holing Brooke.
  • Nathan is holding Jamie.
  • Haley is crying.
  • Now she’s at home, looking at her mom’s recipe.
  • Wow. This has gone way too fast. Way to rush through the rest of the storyline, folks! And conveniently avoid showing the rest of Haley’s siblings!
  • I wonder if it was planned that way or if they had to do rewrites/edits. Pure unnecessary speculation on my part.
  • She smells her mom’s apron and puts it on.
  • She opens the fridge and smiles.

  • Never? Ever? Hm.
  • Katie is looking at a memorial page. Sara’s.
  • She says, presumably to her roommate, that she will get the agent.
  • She unwraps a towel and her hair is now blonde, just like Sara’s.
  • Fade to black.
  • Preview: There’s a sex tape with Alex and Josh going around. Julian’s dad says someone is blackmailing them. Alex accuses Josh of filming them having sex. Somebody bought a portrait Quinn did of Clay–Katie and she looks just like Sara. Clay drops his beer in shock. Skills punches Mouth, knocking down a sheet revealing Victoria and Alexander gettin’ busy. Brooke is shocked.
  • Woah! It says One Tree Hill returns April 26th with “the final four episodes.”
  • April 26th?!

Those are my thoughts. What’s yours?
