"People say Hell is endless. They say it's our worst nightmare. The face of our darkness. Whatever it is, I say Hell is empty, and all the devils are here."
In a word: gulp.
The above quote is taken from a tied-up Nathan and is courtesy of the following promo for season nine of One Tree Hill. Juxtaposed against Brooke's positive narration ("I like Tree Hill like this. Warm. Safe. Loved.... It doesn't mean there haven't been hardships, but I'm here, and here is good."), it's safe to say the preview has us excited and intrigued over OTH's January 11 return. Watch now:
Viewers also get a shot of a returning Lucas in this teaser, while One Tree Hill will feature the returns/introductions of Lauren, David, Xavier, Nathan's mom and Brooke's father on its final season.
We can't wait.
