'One Tree Hill' Scoop: Julian Goes To A Dark Place After Baby Tragedy

Tue, January 31, 2012 2:31pm EST by 8 Comments

Austin Nichols tells us the dramatic story line is the type of ‘challenge’ he’s been waiting for.

We all knew the ninth season of One Tree Hill was going to be rough, but I don’t think anyone was expecting to see Brooke (Sophia Bush) and Julian’s (Austin Nichols) son Davis being carried off in a stretcher on last week’s episode. “It could happen with any parent,” Austin told HollywoodLife.com during our recent visit to the show’s North Carolina set, adding that “Julian really puts a lot of blame on himself for this thing that happens.”

And while it will be difficult to watch Julian deal with the consequences of his neglectfulness — he accidentally left Davis alone in the car to suffocate — Austin says he’s reveling in the drama.

“As an actor it’s been great,” he says. “I’ve really gotten to go to a different place that I haven’t gone to before on this show. I’m always pushing and begging [creator Mark Schwahn] for stuff like this, just trying to keep exploring. I want him to challenge me, and hopefully I can challenge him in some way. I think that makes the best artwork, really.”

And in case you missed the epic ending to last week’s episode — or you just feel like reliving a horrific tragedy — check out the video below:

How are you holding up after last week’s ending? Do you think Brooke will forgive Julian for what he did? Have you ever made a similar mistake you wish you could take back? See you in the comments section!

OMG !!!!! How could they do this ?! As a mother I would never be able to forgive anyone who did this to my baby however I would be able to forgive my hubby cos I know he would never mean to do it. Julian loves the babies so Brook should forgive him. U know forgive and forget !!! Xxxxx

I’m sorry, I just don’t know how Brooke could ever forgive Julian for this. I know that he loved that baby and OBVIOUSLY it was an accident.. but being a mother, I don’t think I could forgive anybody for being SO forgetful.

It’s so awful. I can’t stop thinking about it. I know it’s only a TV show, but I can’t believe they went there.

I have never been so glad I don’t read spoilers because that was SUCH a shock to me! What an ending. Finally some drama unlike the snoozefest that was season 8!
