One Tree Hill’s 11 Most Ridiculous Storylines
One Tree Hill was a great show, and had everything needed to be a success in the saturated teen drama market. With excellent writing, an amazing cast and a great musical influence, One Tree Hill was an awesome show through all nine seasons, but as with all shows, some plots and storylines got a little weird. The show admittedly has a soap opera type feel as many dramas do, but sometimes this influence took over too much and left fans scratching their heads at some of the most ridiculous moments. Not to say the storylines still weren’t entertaining or done very well, they just stretched a little too far from what the show normally portrayed. Supernatural encounters, so many kidnapping and just really, really bad luck were only the tip of the iceberg when One Tree Hill took the step into ridiculous.
11. Lindsey Leaves Luke At The Altar
The entire relationship between Lucas and Lindsey never felt right, probably because it took us all by surprise as when they left off in season 4, Lucas and Peyton were a happy couple. As they continued to plan their wedding and it was obvious there was still something between Peyton and Lucas, everyone wondered just how and why Lindsey and Lucas would call it quits, but they way in which it happened was completely ridiculous. As his editor as well as his fiancee, Lindsey read Lucas’s novel, plainly titled The Comet before the wedding, but it wasn’t until standing at the altar and after Lucas had already said “I do” did she realize the comet in the book was actually a reference to Peyton’s car, a Comet. It was definitely a “they’re kidding, right?” moment when that was the way in which they split up Lucas and Lindsey. What was even more absurd was that Lucas actually seemed to love Lindsey and had no idea what she was talking about.
10. Psycho Derek
There are quite a few “psychos” who make their way to Tree Hill and unfortunately always get themselves involved in the same group and the one leading the way was Pyscho Derek in season 4. At first “Derek” is seemingly Peyton’s half-brother, but before long it is revealed he is actually a stalker of Peyton’s who learned about her life from her blog and podcasts and also believes she resembles his dead ex-girlfriend. While unfortunately, these things do happen, what was most ridiculous was that even though Lucas pushed him out of a window, he somehow managed to get up and get away before anyone could get to him, leaving the door wide open for his return.
