* 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.
** Played with in season 3 -
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.

** Peyton & Haley both lose their virginities to Nathan.
** Lucas (At least, it's implied) & Chase lose their virginity to Brooke, and they're not the only person to do so.

to:

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.
** Lucas (At least, it's implied) & Chase lose their virginity to Brooke, and they're not the only person ones to do so.

* 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. Clothes Over Bro's merchandise can also be purchased [[http://www.wbshop.com/Clothes-Over-Bro%27s/othcob,default,sc.html here]].

* 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."

* RecurringExtra: A number of them - for example the unamed members of Tree Hill Ravens in seasons 1 to 4 are recognisably the same group of guys throughout all 4 seasons, and can even be seen in the background at Lucas' two weddings in seasons 5 & 6.

Added DiffLines:

** The Pilot builds up to a one on one game of basketball between Lucas & Nathan; Season 4 (And the characters' time in high school) ends in the same way, albeit with them playing as brothers rather hated rivals.
** Season 5 starts with Brooke & Peyton flying back to Tree Hill; it ends with Lucas in the airport awaiting a flight out of town. The parallel is furthered by all three characters passing a "Welcome to Tree Hill!" sign in the airport.


Added DiffLines:

** The final shot of the Ravens' State Championship win in 4x09 is the same as the final shot of their play-off loss in 1x22.

*** And on top of all that, the "Last season, on ''One Tree Hill''" recap at the start of the episode doesn't end on the cliffhanger, but on [[spoiler:Peyton telling Lucas that she'd say yes if he proposed to her now]], which kinda removes all tension from the following scene.

* DatingDoSiDo: To avoid an overly long list, let's put it this way - of the main cast[[note]]Lucas, Nathan, Peyton, Haley, Brooke, Julian, Quinn & Clay[[/note]] of all 9 seasons, the only ones who didn't date more than other member of that group were Haley, Clay & Quinn; with the later two only coming into the show ''after'' Lucas & Peyton had left and the other characters were already with the person they would finish the series with. And this doesn't even begin to include secondary characters like Rachel, Skills & Mouth, or minor characters like Taylor.


Added DiffLines:

* TheirFirstTime:
** Peyton & Haley both lose their virginities to Nathan.
** Lucas (At least, it's implied) & Chase lose their virginity to Brooke, and they're not the only person to do so.
--> '''Haley''': Welcome to Tree Hill, try to find a boy who didn't lose his virginity to Brooke Davis.
** Mouth loses his virginity to Shelley, the clean teen.
** Millie loses her virginity to Owen.

** At the end of episode 4x01, Lucas can be seen writing part of the episode's voice over on his laptop. It's never mentioned or shown happening again, but episode 4x13 makes the implication that he was writing the first draft of 'An Unkindness of Ravens', the book he eventually publishes during the four year time skip.



* NeverTrustATrailer: Trailers for 3x16 ("With Tired Eyes, Tired Minds, Tired Souls, We Slept") hype the TonightSomeoneDies aspect of the episode. [[spoiler:They just misdirect the viewer to think it's one of the students (Specifically, Peyton) who dies, with absolutely no hint that it's ''Keith'' who dies]]

** The promo spot for 5x17 ("Hate is Safer Than Love") is focused entirely on Lucas & Peyton, and shows them falling into bed before Peyton starts unbuttoning Lucas' shirt, with the implication they would be getting back together in the episode. Not only is this scene not present in the episode, but the point in the episode where the scene would have taken place is when [[spoiler:Lucas tells Peyton that he hates her & wishes she had never come back to Tree Hill]].
