Words Sting: Reactions to "Hate is Safer Than Love"


On the most recent episode of One Tree Hill, something finally happened. You may not have liked it, but it was something, right, which has to be better than the lack of drama that we've been seeing on One Tree Hill lately!


Some of my reactions to this week's episode:


1. I still don't care about Dan or his heart problem. What would make me care more though would be Dan pulling the plug on the dying priest so he could steal his heart. An entertaining Dan is an evil Dan. Bring on Evil Dan!

2. So Jamie found the card in the garbage can. Did we not see that coming from a mile away?

3. Does Brooke not have some serious chemistry with the hot 28 year pediatric cardiologist (Ethan)? Random observation: Ethan likes to wear a fleece in the hospital more often than scrubs or a lab coat.

4. This episode contained the second plug for recycling of the season and no less than 3 plugs in this episode alone for Rock the Vote. I actually think it's really cool that the show is going to so much effort to stress issues that are relevant, especially for young people, so kudos to them.

5. We got a dose of angry/violent/drunk Lucas tonight and it was not pretty. Not at all. Attacking a high schooler is inexcusable, Lucas, even if Lindsay just rejected you for the 47th time!

6. Awwww. Of course Mouth put his friendship with Lucas over his career (and was smart enough to destroy the evidence, unlike Haley with Jamie's card). That being said, since it's his friends that are the sports news makers in One Tree Hill (Lucas and Nathan), he might just be in trouble.

7. So the rumored hookup was Deb and Skillz. Many of you were correct about this one! I enjoyed Deb's "You said you were older" and Skillz's "You said you were younger" lines. Do we think Nathan will be angry or won't care when he finds out?

8. I enjoyed "Mia's" cover of Halleluyah, which played near the end of the episode, but I thnk I've heard one too many covers of that song...

9. Who thinks Brook is going to have a nervous break down when she has to give back Angie?


And now, for the big news...


10. The harsh quote of the evening award most certainly goes to Lucas, who in a drunken stupor says: "Peyton. I hate you. I wish you never came back. You ruined my life."


Again, this is Lucas not being nice (and irrational...he is the one that keeps writing those books that are indirect professions of love to Peyton) and I ask myself again why he is such a catch anyway??


So...improvement over last week, yes? Overall, it still was not an overwhelmingly eventful episode, but perhaps we've started to turn a corner here...

Starbust also got a plug, however! Kinda like Sunkist in the 1st/2nd seasons

"8. I enjoyed "Mia's" cover of Halleluyah, which played near the end of the episode, but I thnk I've heard one too many covers of that song..."
Total O.C song as well so I dunno if it really fit in.. Good cover though..

firstly, i am dismayed that the next episode is the season finale. i need more season five! i don't think we're ready for a new season right now. it seems to have gone by super fast, or is that just me?!second of all, lucas was a jackass, but a drunken one, so whatevs, and i don't think he shoulda hit the high school kid, regardless of the circumstancesi also liked mia's cover, but agree the song has been covered a LITTLE too often..

I don't care what anybody says or think, it has always been, still is and will forever be about Lucas and Peyton. if these two don't end up together i am gonna be so pissed cause there's no room in true love for Brooke nor Lindsey. why do you think Lucas keep writing bout Peyton even if he's not conscious that he's doing it.I think the season's finishing to fast though.LUCAS + PEYTON Forever True Love (FTL)

I so wish that Lucas and Peyton gets back together but if hes gonna act like this she might as well move on! And i dont know why he said that he wished she never came back for HELLO how else he started writing again it sure wasnt Lindseys inspiration thats for sure! Plus to how could Peyton see that he would write something about her because he was sooooo in love with Lindsey (so he said!). I think Peyton deserves way better then a JERK that tells her he hates her. And when you watch the preview youll see that Lucas changes the subject when Haley tells him that he needs to say sorry to Peyton! About the Brooke thing I know that shell have a hard time but I think with the support from all her friends will help her out. I hope Mondays episode goes good and I cant wait till season 6 but i was a little said that this is the finale and its all because of the writer strike!! ahhh.. Oh and I loved Mia's song really good fit just right with the scenes that followed it..

Personally, my favorites are Hailey, Nathan and Brook....Lucas and Peyton are getting on my LAST nerves, just get together already!!!!! Mouth and Millie are so cute and Skillz with Deb is so hilarious!!! And Dan better not kill the rev!!! Loved the episode but is it me or does anyone find it weird the they keep mentioning Mia's age over and over with the OMG, you're 18 now!! Makes me wonder if is she really 18 or is it just because of "Rock the Vote"? Someone help me out!!

IM FREAKING OUT!Lucas better take it backk!!, I Hate You =0, who says that after writing two books of how in love with her he is =S. But Still, I would die if peyton and lucas dont get back together. Geez it was love at first sight, i mean was it just me?, cos the second she almost ran him over, they fell in lovee!I personally think, he calls brooke. i dont want to believe it, but i think he does. HOPEFULLY she says no =S. Brooke says that Peytons her best friend, and i do belive her, but lets face it.. Peyton backstabbed Brooke the exact same way!Peyton shud start making lucas realise, and sufferr!
I CANT BELIEVE ITS THE LAST EPISODE ='[

my reactions to yours(:
1. hell yes! dan is a waste of space if he's not evil.saving jamie was real sweet and everything, but that's it.i also need dan to be absolutly evil for me to like him to be included in the show.2. of course. haley was sort of stupid about that in my opinion.just humor the little kid for a bit. jeesh.3. i think that a brooke&ethan realtionship would be awesome!i totally see the chemistry there.---i particularily dont like fleece, but whatever.4. agreed.5. ugh. i find lucas to be pretty hot when he's sad disapponted, happy, whatever.but the way that he went crazy was totally unexceptable,and i found that very annoying.he should know that lindsay doesnt want him anymore anyway.god.6. mouth was really nice, it suprised me and yet i thought that it was really nice.though trouble is going to come out of it's really nice of him.7. hahahaha i totally loved the skills and deb hookup."maybe one night wont mean annything" or whatever it was deb said.it's sad that deb has to resort to online flashing in order to get a datebut hey!but i think that skills should be careful about where he treads, with this realtionship thingy.i dont think that nathan will take very kindly to this.8. Mia (Kate Voegele) is amazing, i love her music and everything.9. oh god.brooke is totally going to break down and im going to cry .and it's going to break both her heart and mine.angie's so cute!&,10. lucas is such a catch because he just is.there's something about him that just makes you instantly like.it cant be helped, not to mention the fact that he's pretty hot.it's so horrible how he said that to peyton, for real.in the next episode, season, whatever,he's going to get together with her anyway,because, like you said, he keeps making those books about peyton.

cant wait for the finale!!!!(:

what???? Brook and lucas all the way. I think Lucas and Peyton look horrible together. I don't care about all the subconscious crap because all in all brook and lucas still seem to have more chemistry. It's true Petyon is becoming old news. She always has been actually. She's bored me from the beginning to her I'm better than you act to her weird I hate the world act. But I love Hailey and Nathan. I am really happy them two got together and it's working for them they seem so happy. I get entertained while watching them.

Yeah...i don't see Brooke doing that to Peyton again.But i think someone got it right when they said that Peyton would kinda deserve it, after the fact that she was together with Lucas when B and L first hooked up..no matter how much i love 'Leyton'.AM STILL CROSSING MY FINGERS FOR LEYTON...lol...i think they're soo kismet!

Okay, sorry to crush your dreams, Brucas fans, but THERE IS NO MORE BRUCAS. And for all of you who say that Leyton is old news: If anyone's old news it's Brucas. Brucas is done and it has been for a while. Watching them it is clear that they are only friends. And when he calls whoever it is he calls, it's not Brooke. How do we know that? Because he says "I have to tickets to Vegas. Want to get married tonight?" He and Brooke haven't even so much as kissed in th past 4 years, why would he want to MARRY HER? HELLO?! DUH! They were great before, but now they're over. End of story.
Also, I'm pretty sure it's Peyton he's calling because him and Peyton are not old news and I think it's not Lindsey because he knows that Lindsey won't get married to him now if she wouldn't get married to him earlier and because she recently filmed her last episode and I don't know if it was a season 6 episode or the season 5 finale but either way, if she was going to Vegas to get married to Lucas, she would be kept on the show for a while longer.
Also, if he's not calling Peyton (which, by the way, he totally is), then I hope they bring Jake and Jenny back. I loved Jeyton almost as much as I love Leyton. That would be awesome.
And I totally agree with the whole Brooke/Ethan thing. They have total chemistry. I hope they start going out, that would be adorable!<3333

I know that there are many Brucas fans out there but come one it would be TOTALLY weird if he were calling Brooke it would be the most surprising thing to her as cute as brucas is I have really grown to love their friendship so much I feel it would ruin it if they became a couple and it may go without saying but I do really hope it's Peyton he's calling Leyton = LOVE

I think that he is calling Brooke but not because he wants to be with her, its probably a reaction to Lindsay's rejection. It seems that both Brooke and Lucas are ready for a familly so maybe that is why he calls her. But Brooke would never say yes because she values her friendship with Peyton too much now they are no longer silly kids in high school. It seems that the writers just wanted to end it on a cliffhanger but i doubt that the storyline will be carried on in the next season. Hopefully he will finally come to his senses and realise peyton is the one for him. GO LEYTON!

Of course lucas did not meant what he said to peyton, he was just being an ass. He maybe taking either brook or peyton to vegas for different reasons, I do however hope its peyton.Also I do not think he is actually going to get married in vegas, that is just not lucas to get married without his family and friends present, they mean too much to him. People often associate getting married with vegas, am going to vegas, wanna get married it could just be a joke, a silly comment at the end, whatever it is he wont get married in vegas. Jamie and gavin rocks!Fans say brooke ….. will not do that to peyton and some brucas fans respond by saying why not, peyton did it to brucas . But its more than that, remember season 4, peyton ask brooke, can we be friends again like before, and brooke responded no! like before is long gone, but we can be better friends. Thats what its all about, in addition to that brooke will not put herself in that position again, she was very insecure when she was with lucas because she knew lucas still had feelings for peyton and he would not let her all the way in. What we saw between brooke and lucas in the last few episode is just a friendship thing.I love brooke, haley, and peyton, lucas is an ass.

My instincts tell me that it'll be Peyton. Mark wanted Leyton from the start, and he kept them away from each other for an entire season. I'm guessing that Mark is hoping that if & when it is revealed that the phone call was to Peyton, the audience will cheer for the sweet, long-awaited moment.
If this does happen, however, I'm not going to be cheering. I hope it's Brooke. I really don't see anything special about Leyton... at all.
You know what would be funny? If it was someone completely out there like Mia. :p I would say Haley, but she's already married.

I'm a hardcore leyton fan, but i won't be surprised if it's brooke he's calling, and i'll only be a little surprised if she says yes.Although, i think it'll be incredibly stupid.I mean, i understand how the show likes to surprised us will all these out of nowhere things, but that'll be just too random.I also won't be all that surprised if he's not calling either if the three, and he'll calling one of the guys, or haley, or even deb.of course, he'd be joking then.But, the truth is, we're not going to know until september, unfortunatley.
I lovelovelovelove jeyton almost as much as i love leyton, but i recently read an interview with Bryan Greenberg (Jake) in which he stated that he's not planning on coming back to one three hill, at all,.I was a bit upset because i kept telling myself that the only way i'd be alright with brucas is if jeyton got together...but i guess there's no chance of that.
i think that brucas is much better as friends.They ended their relationship long ago, and i'm pretty sure leyton's going to be endgame, since mark's the creator, and he said that's what he wanted,unless he's overruled, i guess.
In a way, i kinda hope it's not peyton that he's calling,because unless there was more to their conversation that they're going to show us next season, luke didn't look to happy, and getting married out of the blue in vegas might not be the smartest idea....i'd be thirlled, but worried at the same time.

I'm sure they'll make it all make sense in the end.(:well, i hope they do.
