One Tree Hill Spoilers: Season Six Finale

at . Comments

The cheesy but magical world of One Tree Hill was rocked this week by news that Chad Michael Murray and Hilarie Burton will not be returning in the fall.

Here's what Michael Ausiello of EW says about the devastating departure of the two stars, the season finale Monday, and what's to come next season:

  • As for whether Chad and Hilarie's characters, Lucas and Peyton, get a proper sendoff, they "definitely come to a natural resting place that feels right for them and ties up their story nicely; however, they do not get an actual sendoff of any kind."
  • As for Sophia Bush's raspy-voiced character, who will be back for a seventh season in the fall, "Brooke finally gets two things she's long wanted."
  • Meanwhile, Whitey (the retired HS basketball coach, played by Barry Corbin) and Karen (Lucas' mom, played by Moira Kelly) appear.
  • As for next season, filling the void left by Chad and Hilarie will be three new faces: Quinn, Haley's free-spirited, strong-willed older sister; Alexis, a model-actress-crazy bitch in her 20s who Brooke hires to be the new face of her clothing line; and Clayton, a young and brash sports agent who takes on Nathan as a client.

One Tree Hill Quotes

Most of our lives are a series of images, they pass us by like towns on a highway. But sometimes a moment stuns us as it happens and we know that this instant is more than a fleeting image. We know that this moment, every part of it, will live on forever.

Lucas

Lucas: Peyton! It's you.
Peyton: What?
Lucas: When all my dreams come true, the one I want next to me. It's you. It's you Peyton.
