Well, “One Tree Hill” fans, it’s official — you have seen the last of Lucas Scott. Tonight’s episode marked Chad Michael Murray‘s first appearance in nearly 3 years, and his final contribution to the series that marked a significant turning point in his career.
When we were on set with Murray during filming in September, he made it very clear that he was returning to the show not for the sake of money or publicity, but for the fans. (Many of whom were waiting out in the parking lot while we spoke, having flown in from France to say goodbye to their favorite series in person.)
Now that the episode has aired and we’ve had the chance to watch the reunion between Lucas and Haley during a horrifying time in her life, we’re curious to hear what you thought of the highly anticipated episode. For our parts, the nostalgia kicked in as soon as the childhood best friends said a simple “Hi” to each other. By the time a worried Jamie threw his arms around his Uncle Lucas, we were reduced to tears. We’re not proud, but hey… it’s an “OTH” thing.
Drop us a line in the comments below and let us know what you thought of Murray’s appearance. Did you love the last look at his friendship with Haley? Did it give you the closure on his character you’d hoped for? Did you wish he’d shared scenes with other cast members? We’d love to hear your opinions, so make your voice heard!
