i am from the UK so although i am a big OTH fan i can't watch the episodes live on TV (on CW) and like so many other will either have to wait until 2009 when it airs on E4 in england or for it to come out on sidereel (from what i have heard sidereel keep the site updated regularly and for us british we can watch it soon after the americans.
1. Nanny Carrie and Dan are both back (why Carrie - WHY???!!!??).
2. Deb is playing a bigger role this season.
3. The first episode has Lucas imagining life with all three women, but in the end he chooses Peyton.
4. Lucas and Peyton go to Vegas but they don't get married.
5. There is a new character named Sam who is a 15 year old foster child. She apparently shoplifts a sweater from C/B.
6. C/B gets robbed and it is suggested that Brooke gets beat up in the process. I am assuming this is what triggers the "dark place" that Kristen spoke about.
7. As mentioned in the previous thread, it is suggested that Quentin gets shot and dies.
this information has come form two different sites who both said pretty much the same theing
oh and sidereel try and get those episodes up quick (y)
