About the thing that happened on 'One Tree Hill' last night

Ding Dong! The bitch is dead. Which old bitch? The Nanny Carrie bitch!

Was there some sort of Stephen King movie marathon playing recently in Wilmington, NC, that all of the writers of One Tree Hill were forced to attend? It would seem so with the way the Nanny-Carrie-as-psycho-killer storyline finally played out last night.

After weeks of holding Dan hostage in her cottage house, Carrie(played by Torrey Devitto, who really should stick to roles where she’spraised for her looks — like in the short-lived ABC Family drama Beautiful People— instead of for her over-the-top fanatical nature) enacted her plan tokidnap Jamie by getting Hayley to believe she was bringing Jamie to ahospice to say goodbye to Dan.

Part of me can’t believe I continued to watch this nonsense go down, but I just could not turn away from the TV! What unfolded felt like Children of the Corn meets The Shining meets, well, The Three Stooges:Carrie chased Jamie into a corn field; Hayley woke up within twominutes of being knocked unconscious; Deb, who had seen a picture ofNanny Carrie and an address on her fridge and immediately thought,"MURDERER! THERE MUST BE A MURDERER LIVING THERE!" then showed up outof nowhere, knocked Carrie unconscious with an old bottle of wine; andthen Carrie (in true horror movie form) woke up only to be shot by Dan.

As if all of that wasn’t bad enough, the killer nanny stillwasn’t dead, and once again Dan had to shoot her — not without spewingoff some heroic line about messing with his family, of course.

Taking all of the above into consideration, who else is happy that the dang nanny is resting in theplots-we-hope-are-gone-forever graveyard? And how many of you arefinding that you’re feeling sympathetic toward Dan, a generallyunlikable character? (Keep in mind: Paul Johansson, who plays Dan,actually directed some of the episodes we’ve already seen this season.)

    Hopefully Nanny Carrie will be dead for good. I did not like this storyline at all.

    I haven’t watched last night’s episode yet because we had a dinner for some relatives but thanks for at least mentioing OTH. I love this show.It deserves more attention.

  • jaime

    Im an OC fan and always will be. Too bad it was cancelled after the 4th seasonm, I cant believe this show is still on….

  • Ceballos

    Sorry, I’ve never seen an epiosde of “One Tree Hill”, but I just want to ask:
    The staff at EW doesn’t SERIOUSLY think these “About Last Night” items are going to replace proper TV Watches, right? I mean, if you guys don’t feel like doing TV Watches anymore, hire me! I’m cheap and my grammar is well above average and I write really good.

  • Amber

    Thanks for mentioning OTH! I’m going to miss Nanny Carrie… what a way to go!

  • Gretchen Weiners

    I don’t watch One Tree Hill either, but I think it’s funny that Ceballos has above average grammar and “writes really good.”

  • katie

    Loved the part where Deb hit her with the bottle. That was a nice shot.

  • Arsenio Billingham

    I have to assume Ceballos was being ironical…he really is one of the most consistently well-written posters on this blog.
    (PS – I was being ironical as well, and if you don’t know why, then you don’t have much edumacation).

  • Katie

    Basically, One Tree Hill is ridiculous now. Come to think of it, it’s always been pretty over the top, without the charm or wit of the O.C. Guess I’m just growing out of it.

  • Ceballos

    No worries. I defiantly was being ironical.

  • Topaz

    yeah, yeah, OTH is ridiculous but just like you Lindsay I could not look away. In the last scene I remember saying to my sister “What is this? I know what you did last summer?” The whole ‘I’m still alive, I’ll never die, I’m going to make your life hell!’ bit was not needed but it still didn’t make me hate the show so of course I’ll be tuning in next Monday to see what other antics these writers come up with.

    The fun “OMG” moments are what make this show! I Love DAN… without him this would be just an average small town drama. They keep trying to kill him, but he never dies. Im glad to hear he directed some of the episodes. He makes the show! I still miss Keith and Karen, too. Love Deb and “granpa skills”. And Jamie is THE cutest kid on TV!

  • JP Goshner

    Last monday night was a big episode, but I am still grieveing over the loss of Quentin Fields. I still cannot believe that the writers wrote him off the show when Jamie was starting to get so close to him.

  • monica

    i realize it was kind of campy, but when Deb smashed that bottle against her face, I was on the edge of my seat and I couldn’t help but cheer viciously. Nanny Carrie was on my last nerve. Ding dong indeed.
