Jason: When will Lucas, Chad Michael Murray, come back to OTH, and where is Hilarie Burton? Will she come back!!?
Lucas comes back in episode 7 and only interacts with Haley and Jamie, and he takes Haley’s new daughter Lydia back home with him. Peyton is mentioned, but as far as I know there’s no reason given as to why she’s not with him. And no word yet on her returning.
Randall: Why isn’t James Lafferty in all the episodes of One Tree Hill? How will his disappearance be explained?
I’m told James didn’t want to do all the episodes, and Nathan is taking an unintentional European vacation. This is less like a Chevy Chase movie and more like Savannah Smiles.
