Before I write this, I need to defend myself. Never, ever, should anyone think I am criticising the final episode of One arbre Hill. I cried for hours after it, as I slowly came to terms with the fact that my all time favourite montrer that I have diligently watched for many many years, is now ended. I loved it. It was a beautiful episode. But something about the final sequence just didn't sit right with me. And it's been bugging me all day, and I really just need to say it to a group of people who loved the montrer as much as I did.
The final sequence seemed so disconnected to the OTH I know and love. Jamie, where was he? I know his no.12 jersey is the last shot we see, but that's not my Jimmy Jam. He's all grown up. That's not what I expected. It feels like he was left out of that final moment, because we didn't see Jackson Brundage.... :( And Lydia? And the twins, Davis and Jude?? What happened there?? They were just babies!!! And Logan. He was only in it a little while, but it just didn't seem right that he was older. (plus, if Jamie is 15/16/17, why does Logan only look about 10? He's only 3 yrs younger than Jamie? Sorry, that was just bugging me...) And the original gang. They didn't age at all. I think that's what threw it out of contex for me. They looked the same as they did at the beginning of season 9, and so it actually took me a minute to realise we had skipped vers l'avant, vers l’avant a few years. It just shocked me when I realised.
That's my little rant there. I miss toi OTH, I miss toi already. Can't believe you're gone. Congrats to Mark Schwahn, and everyone else; all the actors (past and present). toi all did a great job, and toi made arbre colline a accueil to a lot of people. toi won't be forgotten. x
