* OfficialCoupleOrdealSyndrome: Lucas & Peyton. Even though one of the major arcs of the first season is their developing relationship, it takes until halfway through the fourth season - after two love triangles, two dead parental figures, a car crash, drug use, a school shooting & a pyscho stalker - for the two of them to finally become a couple. And then they break up during the 4 year TimeSkip, and only get back together & eventually get married over the course of the sixth season.

* ShooOutTheClowns: Whilst not really comic relief characters, Jamie & Lydia Scott are shipped off to live with Peyton & Lucas during Season 9 in the midst of Nathan's abduction under the pretense of Haley wanting to protect the kids from what was going on. The trope is clearly in effect when one realises that Lydia's too young to realise what's going on & Jamie's already figured out that something's wrong.

Added DiffLines:

** Season 6's finale, "Remember Me As A Time Of Day," is clearly designed in such a manner that it can serve as a finale for anyone who was dropping the show with the departures of Lucas & Peyton.


Added DiffLines:

* ShipSinking:
** Brucas gets hit with this several times.
*** Episodes 4x08 & 4x09 are the official end of the relationship - 4x08 features Brooke & Lucas realising they're BetterAsFriends, whilst 4x09 outright has Brooke telling Lucas to tell Peyton how he feels about her.
*** After the 4 year TimeSkip between Seasons 4 & 5, Brooke is one of the biggest supporters of Lucas & Peyton getting back together. To the point that she's arguably more excited than Peyton as she walks down the ailse to Lucas.

* ContinuitySnarl: In Season 5, Jamie celebrates his fifth birthday. However, his birthday happens in the midst of the basketball season, which is impossible since Jamie was born at the end of the school year in Season 4, on the day his parents graduated from high school & after the end of the basketball season. Considring that Jamie's birthday coinciding with that anniversary was mentioned only a few episodes earlier, it really makes no sense as to how no-one picked up on this. Further complicating things, is that Jamie's seventh birthday happens at the start of season 7 and Nathan (At this point, playing in the NBA) is stated to be in the off-season.



* DreamCrushingHandicap: In Season 3, Lucas learns that [[spoiler: he can no longer play basketball due to his HCM. He tries valiantly, with and without his medication, but eventually stops after having a heart attack after the States game (to be fair, he'd just seen Haley be hit by a car whilst pregnant). After he gives up basketball, he starts coaching instead]].

However, he then proceeds to hide this from everyone & tries valiantly, valiantly to continue playing with and without his medication, but eventually stops comes clean after having a heart attack Keith's death. He ultimately gets allowed back onto the team, with his playing time limited to 15 minutes, and effectively retires after the States game (to be fair, he'd just seen Haley be hit by a car whilst pregnant). After he gives up basketball, he starts coaching instead]].State Championship game.]]



** After the death of [[spoiler:Quentin Fields]] in early season 6, the Ravens retired his jersey before their next game, and played the rest of the season as a 4 man team in his memory. They also have "[[spoiler:Q 44]]" stitched onto their jerseys above their shirts.

* FleetingDemographicRule: When Brooke confesses to Haley in Season 7 that she thinks she might be pregnant, she adds that she's never been this late for her period before. Remember saying the same thing to Lucas in high school, sweetie?l

* RealLifeWritesThePlot:
** Skills begins CommutingOnABus during Season 7 due to Antwon Tanner's real life legal issues.
** Lucas & Peyton were originally going to be brought back for Brooke & Julian's wedding in episode 8x13, however Creator/ChadMichaelMurray & Hilarie Burton's schedules prevented the characters returning. Burton's schedule was also cited as the reason why Peyton wasn't brought back with Lucas in Season 9.
** Haley's second pregnancy was written into the show after Bethany Joy Lenz[=/=]Galeotti became pregnant, with Haley's reduced role in the later episodes of the season coming due to Bethany's maternity leave.


Added DiffLines:

* RewatchBonus: For a TeenDrama, there's actually quite a bit of foreshadowing to some of the plot twists - for example, rewatching Season 3 with the knowledge that Peyton realises that she's in love with Lucas by the finale puts a lot of the moments where Peyton appeared to be pining after Jake in a different light, as a lot of the things she says don't really apply to her relationship with Jake.

Brooke and Felix, in season 2.

Brooke and wants Lucas in the beginning of season 3.to go along with this idea, but he wants a commited relationship.



* HandsOffParenting: Brooke went through this in the first four seasons. Her parents were implied to be unhappily married and had never really wanted her, so they gave her their credit cards and pretty much never saw her. Her mother, Victoria, finally shows up in Season 5 and onwards, and although she is an ''extremely'' crappy mother at first, she and Brooke gradually make up in Season 6. As of Season 7, she and Brooke are close. Sophia Bush said on a Season 5 DVD extra that she was excited when Daphne Zuniga joined the cast as Victoria, because she "finally had a grown-up to work with now!" (Brooke was the only one of the five whose parents hadn't been shown at least once.)

* RomanticFalseLead: Lindsay, Lucas' fiancee from Season 5. [[WordOfGod Mark Schwahn]] states on the Season 5 DVD that the intention behind Lindsey was (whilst still working towards Lucas & Peyton getting back together) to introduce a new love interest for Lucas, who wasn't blatantly there just to serve as an obvious false lead & could very easily be the right girl for Lucas in a different way to Peyton.

to:

* RomanticFalseLead: RomanticFalseLead:
** Jake Jagielski serves as one for Peyton. They date through the second half of the second season, and all the relationship really serves as is a smokescreen that allows the writers to disguise a lot of the foreshadowing towards Peyton's true feelings for Lucas as simply being her pining for Jake.

Nathan. Whilst Peyton's happens before the series begins, it's a significant plot point in the first season that Haley wanted to wait until marriage.

* DeFictionalization: The second soundtrack album, Friends with Benefit, was the subject of a storyline on the show where Peyton and her birth mom made a benefit album to help breast cancer patients. Both of Kate Voegele's albums were promoted on the show through Voegele's character Mia, and her songs are featured heavily in Seasons 5 and 6.

* DeFictionalization: DeconstructedTrope: ChuckCunninghamSyndrome receives this treatment in Season 3, specifically episodes 3x15 & 3x16. Jimmy Edwards, a minor character seen in the first few episodes with Lucas & the other River Court Guys, vanishes without a trace after a few episodes before returning two & a half seasons later, utterly traumatised by his friends all abandonning him for the pretty & the popular.

The second soundtrack album, Friends with Benefit, was the subject of a storyline on the show where Peyton and her birth mom made a benefit album to help breast cancer patients. Similarily, the third sountrack album is ostensibly supposed to be Peyton's road mix from "It Gets The Worst At Night".

* ProductPlacement: In Season 3, One Tree Hill ''really'' wants you to know that Sunkist is a refreshing drink and that Fall Out Boy is (or now, ''was'') an awesome band (the members of Fall Out Boy, particularly Pete Wentz, show up in person to help drill this message in). Meanwhile, ads for Sunkist were seemingly all over the high school, and in RealLife the show was doing some kind of joint promotion for some contest during the commercial breaks with Sunkist. Yeah, it's safe to say that the premiere that year might as well have opened with the line: "And now, Season 3 of OTH, brought to you by Sunkist and Fall Out Boy."
