Andy's 'One Tree Hill' Afterthoughts: Sharon Lawrence Is A Great Addition To This Show, But Now I Wish It Was About Zombies!

Along with zombies and vampires, the Oct. 19 episode also featured Jamie (apparently) as the ghost of young Jonathan Lipnicki…

But let’s not beat around the bush: Sharon Lawrence as Julian’s (Austin Nichols) mother, and Brooke’s (Sophia Bush) monster-in-law, belongs on this show. And while I hope she still finds time to make incredibly emotional PSAs about saving polar bears, I also hope she sticks around in Tree Hill for a long, long time. On top giving Brooke someone (other than mother) to butt heads with, Sharon’s Sylvia also finally told that fool Chase (Stephen Colletti) what a bad bartender he is: “Oh, God. That’s bad. That is a bad drink. That is just terrible.”

I also thought the first minutes of the episode was awesome. In a nutshell, Quinn (Shantel VanSanten) dreamt that Clay’s (Robert Buckley) psycho stalker Katie came back and turned everyone in Tree Hill into zombies. It was kind of fun and campy. But the cherry on top was that Brooke and Julian were the town’s sole zombie hunters. If the next Resident Evil movie needs to cast a couple, look no further.

The rest of the episode was full of the usual side goings-on:

  1. Millicent (Lisa Goldstein) tried to prove her independence from Mouth (Lee Norris) by dressing up as Lady Gaga for Halloween and taking home a much larger man. I’m still not quite sure how he ever got with her in the first place. Was alcohol involved?
  2. Also, Jamie (Jackson Brundage) went trick-or-treating with his annoying friend Chuck and some chick. And even though Jamie was dressed like Harry Potter, he looked more like the ghost of young Jonathan Lipnicki. Spooky!
  3. And in a very One Tree Hill-esque twist, we learned tonight that “Erin,” the girl Haley (Bethany Joy Galeotti) has been talking to on the crisis hotline, is actually a really amazing singer… and she’ll probably end up working with Haley and Mia (Kate Voegele) at Red Bedroom Records.
