One Tree Hill was a fantastic show, with a fantastic cast who were driven by excellent writers and intriguing storylines. Through the series, cast members were gained and cast members were lost and through it all relationship dynamics on the show grew, shifted and changed as characters came and went. While we are all aware that there was many a great romance on One Tree Hill, which all but emitted electricity when two characters were together (Nathan and Haley), there were some couplings that did the exact opposite. Some couples on the show made absolutely no sense and sometimes it was plain awkward to see them interact. It may have come close, but One Tree Hill wasn’t perfect and these couples with horrible chemistry prove just that.
10. Skills and Lauren
Skills was an integral and, in many ways, underrated part of the show that was dominated by the core five characters, but that made us appreciate his greater presence and bigger story in later seasons. While ridiculously different, Bevin and Skills were great together. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for Skills’ relationship with Lauren, Jamie’s teacher. No matter how many times they were together, they always seemed uncomfortable which, in turn, made the relationship uncomfortable to watch. In the end, we weren’t surprised when Skills took off to L.A. without Lauren, and also kind of relieved. In many ways, she simply seemed like a Bevin stand-in, just not as good of a match.
