When you fall in love with a show you are in it for the long run. You love the great moments and suffer through the moments you can’t believe were written and for fans of One Tree Hill, they are particularly aware of the roller coaster of emotions that one show can take you on. In it’s nine seasons from 2003-2012 we went through the ups and downs of Lucas, Nathan, Peyton, Brooke and Haley and many others and while we loved every minute of it, there are particular episodes that will always stand out. There is only one Tree Hill and here are the fifteen best episodes that took place within the quaint town in North Carolina.
15. “Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly” S6, E3
Shocking and tragic deaths are unfortunately one of the markers of One Tree Hill and the dark and heavy storylines are just another thing that make the show great. We first meet Quentin “Q” Fields played by Robbie Jones early in season five and he is essentially Tree Hill High’s new Nathan Scott – arrogant, cocky and quite rude – he is not our favorite but the show quickly develops him into a lovable character. Almost one season later in “Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly” Q’s death is confirmed after he is shot in a gas station robbery at the end of the previous episode. This episode begins with Sam’s voice talking about Quentin Fields in her essay and goes through everyone, especially Jamie, trying to come to grips with his death. The emotion is honest and true and the imagery of Jamie throwing the cape over Q’s casket and Q’s little brother putting on his basketball jersey and standing with the rest of the Ravens at the funeral is one of the most poignant scenes of the season.
