I’ll admit seeing the premiere, Lucas choosing Peyton, and the thought of them actually becoming man and wife disappointed me. It did not however make me lose faith in my beloved Brucas. While it may toughen the road ahead of them I can’t picture them together under any other circumstances. In fact, yes, I’ll go ahead and say it…a part of me is glad, relieved almost, that Lucas chose Peyton. Why, because after watching the episode it only reaffirmed the complexity of OTH and Lucas’s confused love life, and how he foolishly attempts to find reason out of life and love that just don’t exist!
Now, on to the more important of matters. Why this episode makes me keep the faith! First of all, point blank if Lucas would have chosen Brooke it wouldn’t have felt right. Lucas has never had to “choose” to love Brooke, it just happened. He felt it. She felt it. They still feel it! Kind of like the love he spoke about in season five, that doesn’t need words. That’s the love that Brucas share. Not the pick up in the middle of the night, ask the women you just days ago clearly stated that you hated for ruining your life to elope with you in Vegas! That my friends had Leyton written ALL over it, IMO. But they didn’t get married! Thank god! Maybe it was bc it was selfish and “not right”; I mean heck how many times is it really right to get married on a whim? Maybe once in a blue moon, and thanks to our pals Naley, that once is TAKEN! But either way…HE had second thoughts!
So…what did I find riveting and promising in the episode? The little things. The things that made me think about why I love Brucas so much. The reality behind it all, their beautiful story…that HASN’T ended. The one that I see foreshadowed throughout all of the 5th, and YES, even in this one snippet of season 6.
So, furthermore, my greatest glory in this entire episode was hearing Gus (I think that was his name anyway, the card trick dealer/airport love guru) said to Lucas. It was a pivotal aspect of the episode, and to me it solidified why Leyton is not endgame. While Leyton fans see him as a cheerleader, saying “I think you made a good choice…because she came” hinting at Peyton being the one for Lucas, I paid special attention to the words he said about love…he said the MOST IMPORTANT thing he was going to tell Lucas was: “that you can’t CHOOSE who you love…that its more about fate, and DESTINY…what’s in the stars (hence the destiny shot) and that it just happens, and something about how women are smarter than men think they are. He also says something eerily similar to something a brilliant carriage driver once revealed to a couple he obviously felt shared a great love for each other (Remember: that’s what it’s all about…finding some one to truly love who truly loves you back) Yep that couple was indeed Brucas! Coincidences…I think not. So, while LPers are dancing their little hats off, I’ll tip my hat to them, and thank them. IMO, they’ve taken one for the Brucas team..and our grand finale. Yes…I’m Keeping the Faith…I’ll second that motion…anyone else care to join?
