Agreed, but I didn't really like Brucas. Most shows wouldn't recover from losing two many characters at the same time.

I just honestly think he wanted to leave the show and only would have stayed for an ridiculous amount of money. She sadly would have I think since she wouldn't have wanted to disappoint the Leyton/Peyton fans who would have been upset if one party stayed while the other left.

Just finished series 2 on my catch up and although it doesn't flow aswell as the first series the highs are much better with the second half of it being pretty epic. Have to say think its better then series 1 which I didn't remember it being

Too my knowing I don't think Chad got many big parts after it so is a pretty big error on his part I guess but was a massive shame for us fans as they defo had another series in them with the core cast

Did you guys watch past 6? Seems from your post you weren't massive fans of it yourself?

I didn't think season 2 was that great at all and most of the storylines were pretty bad imo, outside of an couple. There is an reason why that season dropped the most ratings by quite an distance.

I'm not sure whether Chad staying on the show would have been the right move either since he wasn't really well written character at that point imo and Mark didn't really care enough to give him decent material.

I didn't watch post S6 outside of an few scenes, so I can't really comment on it.

Like I said it for sure didn't flow aswell as the first one but the back end of it I really enjoyed. But the first half was very hit and miss I agree



What I mean is another season they could have had Brooke's wedding etc and done it properly with Lucas and Peyton in attendance but alas it is what it is


Like me. I watched half of 7 and although I quite liked Quinn it just really didn't feel the same for with too much filler and way too much Jamie screen time.

Another question I hope you could help me with. I remember reading an interview where Hilarie said the plan was for Brooke and Lucas to be together which I found strange reading as I remember at the time most people where rooting for Leyton and from the very beginning of series one the focus was on Leyton

I still don't remember season 2 for the most part. I remember Taylor, and Haley's dreadful tour that I am now once again questioning the motives of (did he ship Joy off because she stood up to him or something?).

If Chad had stayed longer then his character would have been damaged more, and they'd done that more than enough. They didn't even properly redeem him after season 5 so I have no doubt they would have done more damage than good if he had stayed.

I watched 7-9. Didn't like Clay so I kind of skipped through it.

Iirc, someone that was there when she said it explained on twitter that she was being asked specifically about the end of season 3 had the show not been renewed. It was over a year ago so idk where to find it now.

^ Season 2 is also where Luke was suddenly pining over Brooke and Peyton spent the second half of the season playing house with Jake. Yeah, I wonder if the way Luke got written in seasons 5 and 6 played an part in why Chad wanted to leave? The show getting cancelled at the end of season 3 would be the only way that Brucas and Jeyton would have ended up together lol.

Yeah, that made no sense at all And the playing house stuff was insulting.

I wouldn't be surprised if it did, Lucas was written horribly in season 5 and they ignored it in season 6.

They wouldn't have had a choice then.

I didn't like either storyline and both of them made no sense Exactly and I didn't see it getting better if he stayed in season 7-9. No we wouldn't and they would have been forced to settle for them.

If he had been around in season 7 they would have continued to ignore how horrible he was in season 5, LP would probably have got pointless drama etc.

Yep.

I can see them getting storyline that makes him look bad again, since that was Mark's mo when it came to odd seasons for Luke.

Pretty much a given, tbh. He'd probably have been a terrible father and endangered Sawyer or something.

Yep, and then Peyton wouldn't have been allowed to have a reasonable reaction to it just like Brooke wasn't allowed to.
