As Nathan Scott put it Wednesday night on One Tree Hill’s final farewell episode, “Don’t tell me I never gave you anything.” With nine seasons of first romances, heartbreak, deaths, stalkers, births, basketball games and more stalkers, the CW series gave us absolutely everything we could ask for. Something that could never be re-crafted ever again. The storylines, the characters we wanted to be friends with, the soundtracks and the heartfelt messages rushed back as Gavin DeGraw sang his last “I Don’t Want To Be” melody with the cast singing along.
Without hesitation, of course we’ll admit to singing with them while glued to our television sets last night.
Lead stars James Lafferty, Sophia Bush and Bethany Joy Lenz gave us nine years of fantastic performances and left us happily admitting that there will always and forever be just one Tree Hill.
As the episode concluded, fans continued to flock to Twitter to reflect on their younger years with the series. Meanwhile, Lafferty had been answering questions from the viewers beginning on March 29 all along in anticipation for when the final credits aired. “Last ep of OTH is coming and I feel nostalgic,” he began. “Tweet me some questions between now and the finale and I’ll answer as many as I can…..” During his interaction he revealed about his experiences, whether it was about his favorite moment playing Nathan or what the funniest moment on set was.

Gotta admit, high school Nathan was a lot of fun…

Shot in Charlotte once or twice, but primarily in Wilmington, NC.

The road to the State Championship. Fun stuff.
How long did it take you to get the “It’s Tricky” dance down?- @NoelElaineOTH
3 days. And I never really got it down.
What was your favorite scene with Barry Corbin?- @dabneyann
Probably any scene we shot in a huddle.
How amazing were those reveals! During all that time his favorite Nathan moment came at the very end with “Danny Boy”! Jackson caught him off guard with a hilarious comment and Jimmy Eat World was his favorite band on the show. Not to mention—Max that record story guy was probably his favorite character. Mark Schwahn shout out right there!
Hours before the big show James added, “One final thank you to every One Tree Hill viewer that made it possible for us to get so far. Hope you enjoyed the ride.”
We absolutely did. So much so that Mark Schwahn would probably be the only person who could express our thoughts perfectly on what the past nine seasons have meant to us.
