One Tree Hill: The End of An Era!
Ok guys so I just got done watching Hilarie Burton's official blog! It was honestly the most sincere and heartfelt message! The most beautiful way, I think, for her to say goodbye! It's pretty much a safe bet to say that Peyton Sawyer will not be returning to One Tree Hill! With that said what does this mean for the future of One Tree Hill? For Peyton fans? For Lucas fans? For Leyton fans? For Breyton fans? For Brucas fans? If our beloved P.Sawyer is no more where do we go from here?
First off, will start with Peyton fans:
We've watched her cry, we watched her laugh, we've watched her get angry, and smile. We've seen her go from a moody teenage artist to a beautiful, successful record label owner, and future mother. Peyton has been through more than any 22 year old should ever have to go through! She's always said "People always leave" so now is it her turn to do just that?
The thing I guess a lot of us are wondering is how will Mark go about letting her go? We all have seen the new promo. Lucas saying "Peyton if you have this baby you could die" so is that how it will happen. Will her love for her baby end up killing her, leaving her child without something she lost so early in life; a mother? Maybe, and this is just a theory, Mark is setting up a new future of One Tree Hill. I mean as the saying goes history always repeats itself, so that being said is Mark having her future child become the new Peyton, boy or girl, is this child doomed to go through losing his or her mother as well?
And then their is the fact that Peyton was adopted and never knew her birth-mother, Ellie had to give her up for adoption. Does this mean that Peyton will never get to know her child? That she will decide that having her baby is a risk that she can't take? Will their be too many complications that she'll lose the baby? If so does this mean that she want be able to forgive herself or that she will feel too much pain that she will have to leave? She has said it before, in a flashback in Season 5, that Tree Hill had too many bad memories, that it wasn't home. Will losing her baby be too much, the one bad memory to send her over the edge and lead her out of Tree Hill for good?
So, if she does leave or if she does die, what does that mean for Lucas fans?
Lucas Scott went from being a loner from the wrong side of the tracks to becoming a best seller, engaged to Peyton Sawyer with a baby on the way. We've watched him go from girl to girl since season one aka the season of the dreaded bermuda love triangle, to finally coming to the desicion this season that Peyton Sawyer was the woman he wanted to spend the rest of his life with. But does fate have other plans? is this a case of star cross lovers, two people who are doomed to fell from the beginning?
Mark has even said that Lucas Scott is very much like his Uncle Keith (compassionate, kind, gentle-hearted), which always brought me to the conclusion that just like his uncle, Lucas would also meet an untimely death. He has HCM, so I always thought that his heart would give out for good and he would die (as you know his heart condition has not been discussed since season 4), but maybe that's not the case.
In season 3, his mother Karen finally found her way back to Keith only to have him die before they were wed. Is Lucas more like his mom than we originally thought? He finally has Peyton back and sources tell us they will be married, but like his mother lost her 'one true love', will he lose his too? Also if Peyton does die, what does that mean for the fate of his child? Will the baby die or will he be left to raise his child on his own just like his mother? Will he end up resenting his child like his father resented him? They say the apple doesn't fall far from the tree, so will that be the case? Will Lucas turn into someone completely bitter against the world, will he become someone he hates, living his dream through his child, will his child eventually grow to resent him like Lucas resented his own father?
Or will the love that Lucas received from his mother from such a young age spill over to his child. Will he become the father he always wish he had? Will he raise his child with the same values his mother instilled to him at an early age: kindness, compassion, understanding, forgiveness, humbleness and humility?
And then there is the possibility that Peyton will not die. What then? Does that mean she will leave him? Will that in turn turn him into Dan? Will he leave Tree Hill for good? Will he find someone else, will she find someone else? Which begs the question, what does this mean for the future of Leyton?
Does no Leyton=no Tree Hill? Mark's said from the beginning that the show was based around them, that they were always going to end up together? I mean from the first episode from OTH you could already since something between those two. But things do change, so does that mean Mark has had a change of heart? Does this mean that his sole purpose for OTH, his guiding force for the show, has suddenly become about as impressive as Lucas' second book? Or does Mark have other plans? We all know Mark is the master of the 360 spin arounds. So does this mean that Leyton will get their happy ending? That at the end of season 6 they will ride off into the sunset together? That they'll have their baby and get to be the happy little family they've always dreamed about? Will Lucas' realization that he would always be in love with Peyton Sawyer stand the test of time? Or does this simply mean that maybe Mark has changed his mind about their relationship? Is it possible that Lucas Scott and Peyton Sawyer were not meant to be TLA? Was Peyton, the comet, their to guide him to something else. Was her direction and beauty and meaning helping him to choose a different path in life, with his heart? Nathan said it this season, Peyton was only one half of his book, but what about the other half? Was it really always meant to be the other girl? Which begs the other burning question, what does this mean for Brucas fans?
Brooke and Lucas were anything but conventional, but somehow through their many differences they fell in love. But that being said, they haven't been together in almost six years. Brooke is Peyton's best friend, her hoe over bro. Lucas is Peyton's fiancee, the love of her life. But if Peyton dies what will become of the people that she'll leave behind? Will the death of the person they love send them into eachother's arms? Will they seek comfort in eachother? Brooke's always wanted a child, so if Peyton does die will Brooke help Lucas raise their child? They became so close over Angie, could this bond them too? Lucas once said that Brooke was the "one" the girl he wanted standing next to him when all his dreams came true, could that still be the case? For they didn't break up because they didn't love each other, honestly Lucas never even knew why they broke up. So all they have left are the what 'could have beens'. This time is it possible that they could have the what "can be"? Or like we've seen so many times before, will their relationship end before it even begins? Lucas once said he's the guy for Brooke, but in the very next season it told her maybe he wasn't. Is that true? Brucas fans have always stood by the hope of this quote "People that are meant to be together always find their way in the end". So will they find their way in the end or will the pain from losing Peyton be too much to overcome? Does this mean the return of Brucas or the final nail in their coffin? And also, what does this mean for Brooke fans?
Brooke Davis went from party girl of tree hill to fashionista supreme and foster mom extroidinare. Her best friend Peyton is the reason she came back home to tree hill, so without Peyton will she have a reason to stay? Brooke has created a home in Tree Hill a family, but in the end will that matter, will the pain of losing her best friend be too much? Will it be to hard for her to stay? Then there is Julian, the man that Brooke has recently started a relationship with, the first guy she has really been with since season 4 (which is a crime if you ask me ;)) We all know he will not be staying in Tree Hill forever, so does this mean that he will convince Brooke to bring Sam and come to New York with him so that they can be together? Does this mean the end of One Tree Hill for Brooke? Or like Sophia has said before "I don't think Brooke will have the conventinal fairytale." Is that true does that mean that Brooke will stay in Tree Hill, perhaps adopt a child and raise him or her on her own? Will she be Aunt Brooke to the Leyton baby and teach her or him all about her mom? And then hear comes the real tear jerker, what about all of us Breyton fans?
Okay I can pretty much go out on a limb and say whether you are a Leyton fan or a Brucas fan, the love almost all of us share for Breyton is mutual.
I think we all smiled when Breyton shared their 'weird lesbian hug thing' as Sam so sweetly put it, and when I saw the new promo where Peyton could lose the baby the one thing that kept coming to my mind, is how sad is this going to be when she has to tell Brooke? And then I though If the baby dies will it bring them closer together, or will Peyton be so bitter that it drives them apart? If Peyton moves away will they be lessened to nothing more than a phoneship? Or and this is the one that is going to keep me in my room under my blankets eating too much chocolate and crying my eyes out, what if Peyton dies? Their friendship has been one in a million. A friendship that has survived absentee parents, two dead moms, 3 shared men, and many near fatal experiences. But how do you survive something as final and powerful as death? Will this be the end for Breyton will these Hoes over Bros finally find the one thing that will drive them apart forever?
Breyton is such a huge staple of the show, more people probably ship them then anyother relationship? Which brings us to one final question, with all these possible crumbling relationships, how will the show survive, and what does this mean for One Tree Hill fans?
We've seen it before you guys, when Marissa died on the OC, we all knew the show was over. One more season and then it was off. Does this mean One Tree Hill will suffer the same fate? If they kill off the beloved Peyton Sawyer will One Tree Hill even make it through a whole 7th season? How many fans will stop watching do to the domino affect that her death causes? None of us know the answer to these questions, but I do know that if Peyton does leave the show she will be greatly missed!
So here is to Hilarie. A truly amazing, strong, talented, funny, and beautiful woman, that had enough respect and kindness in her heart to say goodbye to all of us! We love you Hil and you will be greatly missed! Also you have the best legs ever!
WE LOVE YOU HILARIE!
