'One Tree Hill' Afterthoughts: Sophia Bush & Sharon Lawrence, Emmys All Around!

Posted Tue, November 9, 2010 9:57pm EST

Also, where the eff has Quinn been for the past two weeks? Does she have better things to do than help her boyfriend open a can of soup?

The Nov. 9 episode of One Tree Hill took things slowly. And when I say “slow,” I mean the episode’s biggest action scene involved Clay (Robert Buckley) struggling to open up a can of soup. (“Suck it, soup!” he proclaimed victoriously.) But sometimes slow is good, especially in Tree Hill. Through extensive dialogue, we learned a little more about each person in the gang — especially Brooke (can someone please give Sophia Bush an Emmy so I can believe in justice again?)

Now that she’s lost her company, her money and her mother, Brooke is dramatically starting over — and no one on this show (or any show… ever) does drama like Sophia Bush. Tonight, we got the official S.B. tri-fecta: tears, shouting and, not one, but several empowering speeches. What I loved the most, though, was that in her time of trouble, she retreated to the roof of her store and threw water balloons at innocent passers-by. This season has been full of nods to the past, but incorporating Peyton’s (Hilarie Burton) go-to water balloon therapy has been the best one yet.

And I’m starting to think Haley’s (Bethany Joy Galeotti) new musician Erin is less psychotic than I originally assumed. Considering this show’s history of crazies — Dan Scott, “Pyscho Derek,” Nanny Carrie and most recently Katie — I’m just waiting for someone to go apes**t.

I’m also marking Nov. 9 in my personal One Tree Hill calendar (no, I’m really not sad enough to have one) because it was officially the night I started caring about Chase (Stephen Colletti), Mia (Kate Voegele) and Alex’s (Jana Kramer) love triangle. I’m not sure what triggered it, but I’m now fully invested and I can’t wait to see the two girls go at each other’s throats on next week’s Thanksgiving episode.

Till next time…

I love Sophia Bush, but I think she needs to move on from Tree Hill, a show I once loved so much. I think she can do so much more and better, she’s actually a pretty great actress. I say more serious movies for Ms. Sophia Bush!

I completely agree with your post. Sophia Bush has always been amazing. Especially when she cries- I can’t help but feel teary to! She’s exactly the actress that I look up to, someone who can make you feel the emotions the character they portray are feeling as well. I can’t believe she hasn’t won an Emmy either!!!

I’m happy Quinn’s taking a break. I don’t really care much about her.
Also, I feel the same about Chase/Mia/Alex triangle. Couldn’t care less before but now they’re starting to seem interesting.

And Erin! I thought she had the hots for Haley at first lol. There’s a different vibe around her and I do think she’s gonna go along the lines of Psycho Derek and Nanny Carrie. Hmm, we’ll see I guess!

Wow… you and I apparently agree on every single point. Which is awesome. I definitely thought she was into Haley…….and I still kind of do.

Thanks JHuss!

Not sure how I missed that part… Still, next week will be our third Quinn-less week, and It’s giving me the sads :-/

Haha, I don’t even know how to respond to this. I WISH I was on her payroll … although now that her company has gone under, I probably wouldn’t be paid very well.

Oh, we’re talking about the REAL Sophia Bush? Not Brooke Davis? I have a hard time separating humans from characters…
