Goodbye Lucas and Peyton

I’m actually kind of shocked at how many people still ask ‘Where are Lucas and Peyton?’ But the question is still asked and the ones that do still ask are very shocked. As were everyone else when they first found out. Some of you miss them, and some of you don’t.

I’d first like to thank everyone who left a comment on the Discussion post and who left a reply about the subject on Twitter. I had a lot of responses for this discussion.

Like I said, some miss them and some don’t. Some have even mentioned that they may not watch the show anymore. I think if you are a true, avid fan of the show you will continue to watch no matter what. But that is just my own personal opinion. I have been an avid fan since day one and I will continue to watch no matter what. Yes, the show is different without two main characters, but it’s not like its a whole entirely different show. And that is what some thing. We still have Naley, and Brooke, and unfortunately, Dan too. We even have the minor characters that have been around from season one. So there are a few new characters? Mark isn’t trying to replace Lucas and Peyton, he is just trying to compensate for their loss. The show is still in good running and I think this season is a great one! Chad and Hilarie decided not to come back. It was their choice. We shouldn’t punish the rest of the cast or Mark, by not watching, because of something they chose to do.

With that being said, do I miss Leyton? Well being a Brucas fan, I do not miss Lucas and Peyton as a couple, but I do miss their individual characters. I miss the friendships they shared with the other characters and what they brought to the show as individuals. Even so, I still love the show without them. Yes, I miss them, but the show must go on and we have to accept the fact that they are gone, and they may not come back. May being the operative term. Some people act like Lucas and Peyton got killed off. They just got written off! Chad and Hilarie may decided in the future if they want to come back, even at least for a guest spot, or one episode. Hopefully they will at least be back for the series finale. It always sucks when a main character gets written off, but at least they weren’t killed off, and that is always worse.

And the show is just not about Lucas and Peyton. The show started off about Lucas and Nathan and their relationship with each other and others. Season 6 revolved mostly around Leyton, but the whole series has not revolved around them. We still have Naley, who is the other main couple in the show, and who has just as much story time as Leyton, if not more. Yes, if it were James and Joy who decided not to return, I would probably feel the same as some of you do, but like I said I would continue to watch no matter what. I had faith that Mark would make this season great, without two main characters, and I think he has accomplished that. This season, so far, has been one hell of a ride for these characters and I feel as if it’s only going to get more dramatic. I think Mark has done a great job with this season and I think it’s just going to get better!
