We're sure all you fans will have a lot to say about Mark Schwahn's interview with Jason C. at the Entertainment Weekly party and we can't wait to hear it!

Of course, we all want to know what he's thinking about the Lucas/Peyton/Brooke/Lindsay storyline, and he gives us some insight here:

I would like to say that first book it's not only about Peyton. In one of episodes Nathan said to Lucas "Dude. Brook is the other half" and their was talking about Lucas's first book so it's got meant something.I'm brucas fan but I think that only chance for them to be together it's Peyton's death and I don't think so this ever happed.

Leyton - true love always
If you guys remember season 1 Lucas dreamed about Peyton and season 2 he dreamed about Brooke, but have you seen the difference between the 2 dreams. The dream Lucas had about brook was physical, but Peyton he so her with basketball the one thing he loves the most in the world, of course next to Peyton. And I don’t know if Brucas fan watch the same show but as far as I am concern the two books Lucas wrote is about Peyton.
But if I have to choose between brook and another women that is no brainer. Brucas don’t attack me please
And mark you are inspiration to me you work is magnificent. The whole plot of one tree hill is great hoping to see great things from you. Big fan!!!!!!

whatever man the show is really sucky without Brucas Layton just stinks man you poeple call that chemistry? they totally stink as a couple, Brucas is the hot couple. they are the ones with all the chemistry'mark the show needs Brucas back.Brucas forever

Lucas and brooke are ment to be <3 Peyton still Lucas from brooke 2 and i believe thet mark is stupid thet he don´t think thet is sorry for brooke her hart have bin brooket igen:/But i still like mark very much...i´m just angery becuse he break brooks hart

not seeing peyton n lucas 2getha has given me sleepless nights coz they r soooooooooo d meant 2 be couple.Pliiiiiiiiiiiizzzzzz make them be coz lucas+peyton=trulove

I WILL TAKE IT VERY SHORTLY AND CLEARLY:
" LEYTON ALL THE WAY!!!!! NOTHINGS GONNA CHANGE MY LOVE FOR THEM!YOU CANT EVEN COMPARE BRUCAS TO LEYTON!!!BRUCAS = high school crush - NO MEANING, NO DEEP CONNECTION, NO LOVE - BRUCAS SIMPLY NO WAY!!!LEYTON - TRUE LOVE ALWAYS!THE PICTURE OF LP HAS ALWAYS BEEN THERE!ITS MARK IDEA..SO MINE...HE IS GREAT WRITER AND I ADMIRE ALL HIS WORK!!!GO ON MARK - AND LEYTON FOR THE WIN - SEASON 6 IS OUR:)"

Hey, guys! Well, I will tell you how I feel and see the things. Here we go...My opinion is positive about Brooke and Lucas. Their first relationship wasn't that successful but the second was way better. It started with BL nice friendship (Lucas fixed her windshield for free, took her on Keith's wedding, helped her with the presidential stuff, made his room in her home 'till the summer etc tec). Unfortunately Brooke had to go when Lucas was telling her his feelings... then I really beleived that he will fall inlove with Peyton again(you know, they are alone whole summer) but it didn't happen. Lucas even overcame Brooke's test (the non-exclusive thing) which she used to understand is he the guy for her...Hell, yes, Lucas' words on the beach 'I am the guy for you, Brooke Davis' gave the right answer. Soon Brucas became a reality. They were happy-Lucas was great in the team, Brooke created "Clothes over bro's" etc etc...and the most importand-they love eachother. Lucas saw how much she loves him as he saw the letters and all the stuff and forgave her a mistake with Keller and proved how much he loves her in the storm. He said Peyton that Brooke is the girl in his life and blamed her for the kiss in the library. They were great in Rachel's villa-such a great moments. Brooke helped Lucas to go through all that terrible situation with his family (Keith's death). Everything was OK 'till Peyton screw up this again...this was so selfish by the way. I am not saying that Leyton don't have happy moments and love but that's not the point. Brooke have never tried to steal it from Peyton.Couldn't she just leave Brucas happy. After Peyton promised Brooke in the shop (around the end of second season) that she won't make a love triangle again...well, she lied. Why the hell she is trying to get him when he is in a relationship with others. She wants to be happy but doesn't care for Brooke(and Lindsay later) in those cases. She has something like a clock in his mind which rings when Lucas has a girlfriend and then it's time to screw up the things. She had a chance to marry him but didn't do it. She can't expect to be loved by Lucas all over the years without seeing/calling him. Lucas has life and he makes the decisions. Even when Leyton is together, Peyton is filling his head with her problems unlike Brooke who gives him a courage and makes him so happy. In fifth season Lucas helped alot Brooke as friend. Hehe, they even slept as a family, huged eachother (Brooke, Lucas and baby). In the end of a season final they exchanged 'I love you'. Also in that season Brooke was the only one who didn't piss him off and showed her love/friendship in other way which is maybe the right one...maybe this is what Lucas is looking for...anyway, if he calls Peyton will be OK, I will be a little bit sorry for Brucas but this is not the end of life:) P.S. Leyton fans please don't attack me ^^ I said that this is how I feel and see the things :)

Wow. I read through most of comments and I have to ask, are you guys insane? Okay, here's a great writer/director, Mark Schwahn who obviously has an idea or two about where he wants the show to be headed and here you guys are bitching about which person Lucas is going to pick. If you want compelling storylines over frustrating love triangles/rectangles/whatever the hell Lucas gets himself into, then stop caring so much who Lucas is with. Personally, I wish Lucas would call a boy and announce that he's gay or something, just to piss every single one of you off. I love everything about One Tree Hill. The scenes are planned and acted out perfectly, the words are so meaningful, and everything eventually falls into place in the end. Sure, none of can handle the suspense of who Lucas is going to be calling, but shit, it's a cliffhanger and the thing that is driving us all crazy all summer will make us tune in on September 1st. Yea, we might not all get the story-book ending that we had hoped for, but in the beginning Mark said that Lucas and Peyton were planned. So, in the end, it probably will be them together. But honestly, even if Brooke or Lindsey doesn't get picked, does it bother you so much that you discredit a person like Mark who has such raw talent. Think about it, it's a show. It's not the end of the world, and he's trying to make us all happy so stop being so disrespectful. Plus, if Brooke or Lindsey did wind up with Lucas, I'd probably end up hating it because Lucas has crushed those girls' hearts more times than should be allowed. Peyton can have him. Unless of course, Lucas ends up being gay.

Brucas would never work, as long as Peyton exists we all know that... Leyton is true love!

Brucas fans, is this to hard to understand...
"... in that moment, my triumph was not a state championship,but simple clarity. The realization that we had always been meant for each other and
every instinct to the contrary had simply been a denial of the following truth: I was now and would always be in love with Peyton Sawyer." - S5E08

Mark, please don't ruin what it takes you 5 seasons to built...

I usually go for the natural couple...in TV series...for some reason Peyton and Lucas thing seems to be forced...there is no justification to it apart from the fact that Peyton and Lucas met first in the pilot...they are so tragic...they make the watcher feel un at ease...

Brooke and Lucas on the other end evolved at the same time...they are complementary...they just fit...naturally..
and the chemistry between those 2 is sooooo high...

so sorry guys but Brooke and Lucas is sooo the couple we need to see together...

anything else...I just won't watch anymore cause it doesn't make sense...

I'm french ( sorry if i make mistakes ) , & i'm a real fan of this TV show . About Leyton & Brucas, i love the two love stories .. I do think we haven't just ONE love in our lives . So okay, Brucas were so cute together, but Leyton are cute too . Brooke has been an important girl to Lucas, but now it's over, & their friendship is great too, so why not ?! Whereas Leyton, i think they have so many things to live together .
But this is just my opinion . Sorry again for my english :)

I believe that brooke and lucas still love eachother.
I mean how many relationships did brooke have after her break up with lucas.. one and it wasn't all that serious. Lucas was her true love and will always be. She just got tired of the love triangle. So she Decided to give him up to peyton, who's life was always so tragic.

If you guys remember the ending... Where lucas visits brooke at her home.. Where they exchanged I love you. Then you would think it's then that he realizes it's brooke he loves..
The way thier facial expressions came out with it just makes it look like he realized then.
I really want Brucas back together them two are perfect!!!

Leyton all the WAY!!!!!! they deserve a chance at a relationship. Each time they have tried something gor in the way. Brooke had a real go at it and it obviously did not work because he came looking for Payton after each time. We started with L+P and need to end with L+P
I think Mark needs to keep going I love One Tree Hill and hope this is NOT the last season!!!!

I second that Lucas and Haley Please! At this point I will take a dream sequence.

Mark has ruined a perfectly good show with seasons 4 and 5. I really wished he stopped at season 3. His focus is way too much on LP and not enough on the storylines. I have seasons 1-4 and I haven't even taken 4 out of the plastic yet. I'm definitely not buying season 5, because of the LP worshiping. Poor Naley didn't even get a decent storyline. Mark really screwed up his own show, I used enjoy his work but now it’s turned into something I just don't believe in anymore. I thought this show was about two brothers and their love for basketball??? Not about how depressing and screwed up one couple could be (leyton). Gah and I hate leyton, there the worse couple in the history of TV!! They lie, cheat, hurt people, hurt each other. I'd rather see Brooke & Lucas make it work because at least now there's some respect and trust between the two. Plus, there both in the same place at the right time but no mark has to have that sorry excuse of a couple be together. Man I hope LP won't get there happy ending.
Mark needs to do his self a favor, once his series has ended he needs to sit down and watch it and I mean really watch it. Compare the seasons, and realize how screwed up his show is. Please realize season 4 doesn’t fit with the tone of the show. Please realize season 5 storylines were already done throughout the series and how nothing was creative about it. I am so disappointed with this show. Just my opinion if you don’t like it then oh well!

LEYTON FOR EVER

TRUE LOVE ALWAYS= PEYTON+LUCAS
PLEASE MARC END LIKE THIS!!!!
THIS LOVE SHOULD BE REALLY CONTINUE...

Honestly i'm brucas 100% and have no idea of what mark's gonna do next, unfortunatelly i don't think the call brooke received is from Lucas but rather from the fundation that took angie since she'd been waiting for that call all day long

if i think Peyton is selfish?? hell yeah!!she was willing to end Lucas' relationship with Linsday so she could be happy... sorry but that's not true love (i'm not supporting LL )
ooo and please stop with the Haley and Lucas thing cause honestly is SICK it would be like if Peyton ended up with Derek (the real one)

anyway we'll just have to wait till sept 1st

BROOKE & LUCAS

FOREVER AND EVER.

i go for peyton and lucas! PEYCAS were soo good together..True Love Always.

I hope it's Brucas for end game. They are meant to be together. Just because Peyton wrote I will always love you don't mean that she can't move on hopefully Jake will come back for season 6 and then we will have Jayton back like the way it should be. Brooke and Lucas-Payton and Jake- Nathen and Haley and Jamie. brucas TLA.

love one tree hill!!!!!

Mark is one of the smartest talented writers. It appears when we watch a certain scene, we may be confused why he did that but it ALWAYS comes together at the end. It makes sense that he wants Lucas to be a part of all the girls lives, after all the he is the main character. ps- leyton all the way!!!!

mark is the best director out there no matter wat u guys say abt he putting lindsey n lucas together i personally prefer leyton bt wateva mark has done is for the good of the show they still haf gr8 ratings which means ppl r actually tunning it frustrating or not its still the best tng tt the cw has to offer if not every single other channel

OTH ROXS!!!!!!!!!

LUCAS AND PEYTON
I AM OBBSSESSED !
MARK DON'T CHANGE YOUR MIND KEEP ON SHOWING US THE BIGGEST CHEMESTRY I HAVE EVER SEEN
OH GODNESS I MISS ME SOME LEYTON LOVE!

i have 2 say i think ppl shud give mark credit!!! u say its frustratin but u lot will tune in to s6 so his plan will hav worked no point watchin a new knowing it!

lucas n haley is sick that jus gives haley story line karen had in the first 3 series why wud ya want that??

plus i have a best friend who is female n she is lik haley is 2 lucas known all our lives and our best friends always ther 4 each other but its sick ppl want them together!!

for naley fans who feel they didnt get big part this year the first half was all nathan n his career ending disaster n them rebuilding ther marriage from his break down i feel they got even teritory if the show has them in constant drama wer gonna not feeel ther meant to be ya have to show therm happy 4 long times!!

i feeel thers a twist its not gonna b a simple ok down the phone thats for sure but its between brooke n peyton for me series 3 he tells brooke "i'm the guy for u brooke davis" and season 4 tells peyton she's the one she wants next to him when his dreams come true so ya have to feel those words which ever one it is are still in his heart!!

i have 2 say jennifer is wrong i love how mark has not only kept skills and mouth with decent size roles but has kept fergie and co also shame bevin is gone she did make me laugh.

i would of like to see more of whitey i no their adults now but he was the 1 always guided them n feel they cud use him ya never no maybe he'll return i hope so dans accident vintage gr8 work ther with that story line season 6 gonna b truelly gr8 cant wait :)

ya did a great job mark,well you will have aslong as its definately not haley groose! cant wait for september :)

LEYTON ALL THE WAY GET RID OF LINDSAY. not that i don't like her shes cute and all but LEYTON is the one who belongs together and brucas too i just can't decide they are both awesome together its always been the love triangle with lucas and peyton and brooke its like never goona end. i love you mark i love what u have done for the past 5 years and wut u will continue to do! :)

Lucas and Peyton TrueLoveAlways...
It's always been Lucas&Peyton..
They're meant to be together!
Please Mark!

Oh, god, just get rid of Lindsey already - Mark, why do you constantly stick with characters that give nothing to the SLs as a whole? We've suffered through 5 seasons of pointless Mouth and now it's the same with Lindsey. I don't care who Lucas ends up with now, he deserves to be on his own.

I WANT TO KNOW WHO HE PICKS!!.. This is absolutely insane..
of course i am a huge brooke and lucas fan so im hoping for them, but this whole love thing has to end. It cant be Lindsay. Not just because i dont like her but because no writer in their right mind would have a first season character marry one of our main characters. it just doesnt happen! ok.. now for the big ones.. peyton or brooke. To tell you the truth it could be peyton. But i dont think it is because lucas has portrayed nothing but hatred towards her in the last few episodes. She has always been in his heart. from season one and i think always will be. But after he felt nothig but betrayal from her (his feelings not mine).. i just dont see it happening. at all. ever again. sorry :(
that is why i think it will be Brook. She has just lost a baby.. someone who was special to her.. lucas just lost his fiance.. someone he cared deeply about. they both need a sense of closure. Am i saying they would last if they were together? who knows. am i saying they are madly in love? absolutely not. am i saying that it makes sense for them to run to each other after all the tradgedy that has struck them this season?
ABSOLUTELY!!!

BROOKE AND LUCAS

Please Mark!!!

Ok, I must say I get a kick out of listening to both burcas and leyton fans, its just so entertaining. I loved season 5, OTH romance is about true love, like whithey said, a love so strong nothing can come between it, you never forget your first love. Thats what leyton have, I don't know if mark will put them together but those two will love each other forever, no matter if they end up with other people. for those of you who said Haley did not get enough sceen time, thats just sick, mark did a good job with all the charachers

yes the final episode was fustrating but it makes you egar for season 6, they want us to keep watching thats what its all about.

Having read most of the comments, I can agree on some of what you are saying.
But I feel differently especially in response to what Susan said. And I agree with Mark, they're not in high school anymore, its not about who is going to date who and who kissed who. It's about developing lasting relationships, whether it be romantically or just platonic love.

Even as a huge Peyton fan I got frustrated watching her chase Lucas. But I was also frustrated at Lucas because of the way he acted this season. Honestly he was completely classless with Peyton and Lindsey. It was almost as if he led both of them on this season.

And props to Lindsey for staying strong. As much as I disliked her in the beginning she gained a lot of respect for standing up Lucas when she knew he was still in love in Peyton. It's throwback to season three at the engagement party. Brooke already knew.

Anyway. Rambling.
I loved the River Court drawing. Imo, she didn't ruin the River Court, it wasn't a desperate attempt to get Lucas to love her again. If memory serves me right, she told Lucas if she loved him she would try to move on. That drawing was showing how much she still loved him, and it was beautiful.

Regardless of how season 6 turns out I will have enjoyed this show despite the many frustrations Mark has left us.

I love OTH and I am voting for Leyton. I like Brucas too. I dont like Lucas and Lindsey. Lindsey is sweet but Lucas and Peyton should be together, atleast try again. As for Lucas and Haley if they got together were would that leave nathan and jamie. besides that those two together is messed up they are like brother and sister.

I'm gonna agree.... FRUSTRATING NOT COMPELLING!!!

The way I see it, all we've been told this season is that Lucas is hopelessly in love with Lindsey - which, let's face it, nobody (except maybe like three fans??) wanted to hear, which made the season not only frustrating, but slightly boring too.

YES, we like the angst and drama... but there's a line to be drawn. Give Peyton some character of her own - Brooke is doing so well, she's clearly not 100% over Lucas, but seems to have accepted the fact that they're not going to be together, and the friendship they have developped seems really strong. I've never liked Brooke more than in this season. Her storyline is great because she's really made something of herself and she just seems like such a great person. I know there are loads of Brucas fans, and while Brucas had a great run, it seems to me that getting Brooke messed up with thoughts that maybe she could have Lucas in her life romantically again would just wreck the great character that has been built. Lucas broke her heart bigtime TWICE. She needs a new man in her life, someone who would love her and ONLY her, for everything that she is.

But Peyton has done nothing but suffer over how she lost Lucas (which really wasn't her fault at all, and I've been wanting to whack Lucas with a frying pan all season for letting her go), and even her success with her label has been shunned into the corner because all she does is cry and regret.

She needs to pick herself up, find someone else, who would, naturally, make Lucas jealous so that he could snap out of his own stupor at long last.

Keeping friendships alive -great, we all want that. But please oh please quit this beating around the bush as far as the romance goes!

They don't need to be together, there should always be obstacles, but the fact that that obstacle is not knowing what's in Lucas' heart - FAR MORE FRUSTRATING THAN COMPELLING!

Really didn't enjoy the finale. Such a shame. Especially as it seems that whichever one of the three girls he picks would be a disappointment - while I'm 100% for Leyton, that's not the way I'd want their reunion to go down! And, obviously, I'd hate if he chose either of the others!

So the only way I can swing it is if there's some kind of twist and it's none of them but something totally different. But that doesn't sound likely. Unfortunately.

STOP TRYING TO PLEASE EVERYONE COS YOU'RE JUST PLEASING NO ONE!!!

Leyton till the end!!!! ;)

jeeze, mark is really killing me. He was careful with his words but not. sounds like to me he's just throwing brucas scenes in there to appease us fans. but NO! mark its not enough, WE WANT THEM BACK TOGETHER!!! Please tell me why did he compare Laley and Brucas, as if Brucas was unlikely like them. C'mon mark you spent writing 3 seasons of Brucas falling in Love, do not compare Laley's friendship to them. I knew this interview would upset me, oh why did I watch it.

Brucas <3

It seems like another Dawson Creek triangle where Joey needed to decide between Pacey and Dawson.

Peyton and Lucas share too much of the tortured souls vibe. Peyton has so much drama in her life...

Lucas needs someone who can be happy..with or with out him.

I hope Brook and Lucas work it out. They seem to compliment each other very well. She brings a source of energy and spark to his life.

frustrating...not compelling...i dont care if its a spoiler i wanna know who he called!!
just give the fans what they want already!! AN ANSWER!
[still love mark though]

Brooke and Lucas are meant to be!

Ok as I have always been for Lucas and Peyton. I may not really seeing it any more, but maybe thats what they want us to think. It does seem that Brucas may be the right fit here. Remember they were married in real life and there chemistry is great together. Too bad they are not any more..

P.S. Anyone know when the new seasone is suppose to start up again..

Personally sick and tired of Lucas/Peyton/Lindsey/Brooke. There are other storylines. This bores me to tears.

LUCAS AND HALEY...PLEASE

I'll let you all parse Mark's words -- he is quite the politician, isn't he? -- but I must clear up one misconception: The song int he background in Rob Base and DJ EZ Rock's It Takes Two. Just so you know.

I think that Lucas & Brooke must stay together cause they are such a perfect couple.

Brucas for win!!!!!!!

The chemistry between Peyton and Luke has driven the drama throughout season 5 - evidenced in the angst, the tears, the secret kiss, the comet, the rivercourt painting etc etc! The chemistry between LP has been alive and burning 'fiercly below the surface' since S1. BL do have chemistry and there is definately platonic love there but they only seem to work as friends and that's how it should stay, they don't work as a couple! However, if LP aren't endgame, I'd rather see BL than LL! If Lucas is going to end up with someone, it should be with Peyton or Brooke - The LP and BL fans far outweigh the LL fans (no offence, but its true) and it only seems right that at least 1 of our fanbases is happy! Ultimately, the rectangle is not compelling it's painful and really unoriginal, please end it soon Mark!

Brucas forever<33
They have been there for each other and they make us believe in lvoe

Mark just basically said: Brucas fans should be happy Lucas is even in brooke livess, romantically or not. And we started out Leyton, we're finishing Leyton.

He tried to sound all equally pro-Brucas and Leyton, but it failed. He failed miserablly. Lost all respect for Mark: JUST WRITE THE FREAKING SHOW!!!

And, it was definatly frustrating, not compeling. We already knew that was goiung to happen in the promo! And not to find out??? FRUSTRATING!

I agree with kat2392. Mark was very careful with his words. Although I don't know if I am comforted by this or not for my favorite couple.

BROOKE & LUCAS - people that are meant to be together always find their way in the end!

Lucas and Peyton have to end up together! If you've watched every episode, I don't see how you could want Lucas to be with anyone else!

I love that his wearing his "To Write Love on Her Arms" shirt.

and the ending...I agree with most people here, frustrating not compelling.

I agree w/ Erin. What a load of crap. Mark just needs to write for his own damn show. STOP pleasing fans. Go with the plan you had from Day 1. It's just frustrating and Pisses not only LP, BL fans (sorry there's no LL fans they are BL fans)but also has a NH fan it pissed us off too. We don't care about Lucas and his love life. I rather see him pick on girl and move the hell on. I'm tired of 5 season of the same bull crap and NH get kicked to the side, just because Lucas can't make up his damn mind. And to me seems like he doesn't know what to do w/ them and just because their married doesn't mean there's not stories to write for them. I don't care about crazy nanny's, etc... and he thinks making NH cheesy it's what we want. NO IT'S NOT!

I totally hate when there is an interview with Mark because he only leave us with more questions than answers...and after a while it gets kind of annoying.

I don't hate Lindsay one bit. I'm mean, I'm a huge BL fan, huge as in totally obsessed with them but I don't have anything against Lindsey and I think Michaela seems like a great person. Although, I'm not gonna lie it was kind of annoying how every conversation that they have had ended up with Peyton being thrown in the middle.

Lindsey kind of resembles Brooke to me so that is probably the explanation of why I like her. I loved how she stood up to Peyton, because lets be honest here, someone really needed to...she has always done what she wanted without thinking about the consequences when it comes to Lucas and that made me resent her over the years.

Although I still wish and have faith that one of these days Brooke is finally going to stand up to Peyton and tell everything that should have been said in the beginning of season 4 and even in some parts of season 5. I personally don't agree with the fact that when Peyton was chasing Luke in season 5, while he was with Lindsey she said nothing. I mean, she knew how it felt like but stayed quite. That is definitely something that I'll never understand.

Peyton's drawing at the river court pissed me off. Come on, it was another despaired try of Peyton to make Lucas love her. I also found it kind of disrespectful because everyone had wrote their names there four or five years ago (in this show you can never tell because it's been four years since they graduated from high school but somehow Jamie is already five...weird, don't you think?) and she just went and painted "I will always love you" on top of it?! As I said despaired.

The Naley was cute but they are getting kind of boring nowadays...where is the naley we always loved? They look like some 40 years old married couple. Jamie is the best but where is a BLJ scene?! BL are his godparents and we never got one scene with the three together!

About the Lucas call I agree with the person who said it was frustrating. It is not the fact that we have to wait months to see how it is, although it sucks, it is the fact that again Tree Hill is revolving around Lucas love life. Chad is extremely hot but it is getting kind of ridiculous and unrealistic how every woman of Tree Hill is in love with him or has slept with him, with the lovely exception of Haley.

I think I've rambled enough but I just have one more thing to say...

If Mark wants to prove to us that ture love exists he will not make LP endgame because as Landon read to Jamie in A Walk To Remember..."Love is always patient and kind. It is never jealous. Love is never boastful or conceited. It is never rude or selfish. It does not take offense and is not resentful."
And honestly, everything that LP's love could be, being kind, patient and not resentful are not them...they are selfish, Peyton is the perfect example of a selfish person. I think I don't need to say more than that.

hopefully its brucas cos the chemistry between lucas and peyton is no longer there

Mark thinks the ending was compelling. I think it was frustrating. We already knew that was going to happen from the promo, and to wait a week and not find out, that to me was frustrating.
Like that person said...the Dan part was compelling.

Brucas ftw!

Mark serve us Brathan and Baley and Jaley!!!!!!!! Please! I like you now lol

They acknowledged the LL fans! YEAY! I'm happy. We exist! lol.

Brucas for the win!

They have true love... always being there for each other when things get tough and also when things are good, they always turn to each other.

LOVE!

I think it's all pretty frustrating. I have to agree with Kim, and say that Dan's story was compelling. As well as a few others.. But goodness, I finished watching the season finale, not only with no closure, but a little hostility!

I felt like he was throwing a little more faith into the Brucas pot personally. It actually diffused my hope for Leyton a bit...

i think mark needs to wake up already. stop writing for the fans and just write! stop trying to pacify everyone...because it just goes in a circle and nothing is everyone established.

Brooke and Lucas are good as friends. I thought they were much more comfortable and there was an ease to them. Lucas and Peyton should be a couple - especially after this season. Hilarie and Chad have such good on-screen rapport. Nathan, Haley and Jamie (and Chester) make the sweetest family! I am so glad all the drama of the nanny is over. I don't like Lindsey. She's just not a character I can care about. She was forced down fans' throats as the perfect girl without any evidence of that; we were just told that and were expected to swallow it.
Jamie is a lovely addition as is Millicent. Junk and Fergie have been missed. I'd like to see more of Karen as well.
LUCAS & PEYTON TLA

Please Mark - NO MORE LUNDSEY (strange couple name, huh?)!!
Michaela seems very nice, but, the Lindsey character has NOT caught on with a lot of fans IMO. She and Chad don't seem to have any chemistry. The LL scenes are sort of...flat.
Please make a decision about who Lucas will be romantically committed to and put BLers and Leytoners alike (I really don't believe there are a significant number of LL fans) out of their misery...soon!
The dragging on and on is unbearable! Kill the triangle already - we know OTH can do other storylines so well.
A big part of the show was the guy Lucas used to be, he's really not him anymore...Nathan is! I'm not sure Lucas deserves Peyton, Brooke or even his BF Haley for that matter.
I absolutely loved the BP friendship moments so much this season and finally some PH friendliness as well - Brooke, Peyton & Haley (and NJ) are what kept me watching! - that and Hilarie's terrific performances!

I love that Bel Biv Divoe's Poison is playing in the background how many OTH fan's are actually old enough to remember that song, besides myself of course lol!

Please Mark - NO MORE LUNDSEY!! Ugh!

OTH has gone back and forth all season trying to keep fanbases clinging to a glimmer of hope.

i love Mark!! He knows where he wants the show to go, and I really like that he sticks with that!! He also always tries to make sure that every portion of the OTH fanbase has something to look forward to in each episode!!

What a load of crap. So Mark tries to insert Lucas in all the girls' lives in some way just so the fans feel catered to. Nice. Mark needs to quit trying to please everyone and just write the freaking show.

Great interview. Makes me more excited for the upcoming season. :)

Love the interview very careful with his words :)

There you have it...the creater of the show just admitted that he passes Lucas around to please the fanbases (even the ones he dreams up like LL)...frustrating,not compelling. Really frustrating because Peyton and Brooke and especially Lucas look like tools and lose all integrity.

Thanks for posting Jason! Joe Davola's "I love you" had me cracking up for a while, lol.


BRUCAS for the win! lol

Mark is great. But I vote for frustrating over compelling, personally. Dan was compelling. The Lucas call was frustrating.

Well, Mark, I wish you'd just come clean and say there is going to be no more Brucas, not beat around the bush like what you did just there.

Marks words translated: We started with Lucas and Peyton and no matter who or how many of our fans want Brucas, we're not going to give it to them, because we've decided on Leyton-poo.

Very nice.
