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!

My Thoughts on Chad/Hil Departure

Thank you all for all your comments on the discussion post. Like I said previous times before, it was a sad day when Chad Micheal Murray and Hilarie Burton decided to not return to our beloved One Tree Hill. I mean how can you leave a show, where you were a main character for six years? I understand why Hilarie left, I mean if there is no Lucas, how can their be a Peyton? And how would they be able to explain that one, epecially after they got their happy ending. But how can Chad just walk away from a show where essentially it was about HIM? I just don’t really understand it.

But you know what? Good riddence, I say. I mean I like Hilary, and I’m going to miss the interaction between Peyton and Brooke and Haley. They had a wonderful freindship that could surpass anything. But, I’m not really going to miss Chad. I started watching the show because I loved, CMM, but after seeing James for the first time, he started growing on me more and more. Especially after what Chad, supposedly, did to Sophia Bush. After that I just lost all respect for him. I mean, I love him as an actor, I love everything he is in, but as a person, I don’t like him so much anymore. So, I guess I really wont miss him too much.

And even though, I’m glad Lucas and Peyton, left on a good note, which leaves potential for them to come back to the show for a guest spot, I’m not really going to miss seeing them. I was never a big fan of Leyton, I was always a Brucas fan. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I was happy when they did get a happy ending, you know, with Peyton not dying in childbirth and whatnot. But I never really liked them together, so I guess I’m not really going to miss them on screen together. But like I said, I’ll miss Peyton’s interactions with everyone else, and I’ll miss Lucas’ interactions with everyone else too.

I always knew that I would watch the show without them, because I have loved this show since the beginning. Yes, I did start watching it because of CMM, but after watching it I fell in love with the rest of the cast too. In my mind, if you are a true fan of the show, you will continue to watch the show, and give it the benifit of the doubt that it can continue without two main characters. At first I didn’t think it could continue after this next season, because it got me thinking about what happened to the O.C. after they killed of Marissa. I have always thought One Tree Hill was better than The O.C. and I think that if everyone still has hope in OTH that it CAN survive a few more seasons. Just take a look at Beverly Hills 90210, it survived without some main characters. And it’s not like Lucas and Peyton are dead on the show. They can come back for a guest role. I think Mark and the writers have good things for us as season 7 rolls around and I’m excited to see what happens next. I mean, season 6 was strongly about Lucas and Peyton, I’m excited to see more storylines concerning the rest of the cast. I know that Leyton was loved by many, but I think it was about time they moved on. I don’t think there is anymore they can write for them. I think if they would have stayed, they would have just been spare parts for the show.

I’m excited for the new season, I’m sad we had to loose two characters that were important to the show, but I think good things are in store for us. I’m excited to see new characters, and I think they will bring some good drama to the show. I’m also excited to see old faces returning. All in all, I think even without Chad or Hilarie, its still going to be the amazing show that we all know and love.

Discussion: One Tree Hill Without Hil or Chad

Like I said in the welcome post, it was a sad day when we found out that Hilarie Burton and Chad Micheal Murray decided to not return to the show. They were main characters since day one of the show. I’m sure the show is going to be VERY different without them. Whether it will be good different or bad different, we can’t really say right now. Not until season 7 starts.

So for a discussion, I want to know what you think about Chad and Hilarie not returning to the show. Are you glad they are gone? Do you think it’s show suicide? Or could you even care less? I want to know! And even if you agree with whats already been said, I still want to know that. I want to know who has the same thoughts, and who agrees with who.

I’ll post my thoughts in a separate post after I get a few comments.
