One Tree Hill: 12 Most Popular Couples All Ranked From Worst To Best
From 2003-2012, fans tuned in for nine seasons of one of the CW’s best series, One Tree Hill. Over that time, audiences watched as the character’s grew up and went through character developments not often seen in other teen series. While fans watched characters grow individually, we also saw many couples form and break-up and dominate storylines over the course of a season or many seasons. With so many couples in the show, a few really stood out, either because they were loved or because they were so awful together. Check out 12 of the show’s most popular couple and where they rank on this list from worst to best.
12. Dan and Rachel
It is probably safe to say that no One Tree Hill fan saw this relationship coming, and most of us wish we hadn’t seen it at all. In season seven fans were shocked when on his show Scott Free Redemption, Dan Scott reveals his new wife is Rachel Gatina. Then fans were a little concerned because of not only how creepy it was, but because they seemed to actually love each other. With two of the most manipulative people on the show in one relationship, however, no one was ever really rooting for them and we weren’t surprised when the truth came out that Rachel was only in it for the money and fame than her marriage with Dan.
11. Dan and Deb
From the moment fans were introduced to Dan and Deb Scott as a couple it was clear that it wasn’t exactly a happy marriage. Deb was introduced as more of an absent mom who hadn’t had much of a role in parenting Nathan in recent years and had left him to the influence of just Dan. After realizing she needed to spend more time with her family, Deb also came to the realization that she didn’t like Dan all that much, and that he had turned Nathan into an arrogant and disrespectful teenager. The progressive breakdown not only of their marriage, but their relationship with each other was intense and entertaining, but frightening with both threatening to kill each other at least once, and of course one very solid attempt at the actual deed by Deb. At any rate watching them together was frustrating and at times concerning.
