With Tired Eyes, tired minds, tired souls, we slept.
that is when it all changed.
that is when One tree hill really put itself on the map as a show that really had something* to offer to it’s audience. (apart from just teen drama)
This episode breaks my heart, it just shatters me. First, the idea that Jimmy Edwards not a “bad” person, but a kid, bullied to the brink of desperation. He’s just upset enough to think that a gun is going to solve his problems, because he’s tired of his life, tired of all the disappointments, tired of feeling not good enough.
The second is when Jimmy’s mom is asking about him, so true, so devastating. His mother has no idea that he was that lost, that scared, that tired. And she’s hoping to God that her son will be okay, not knowing he is the one causing the panic, the heartache and terror. so much happens in this episode, the world gets a little more real, a little darker, a little more serious.
It’s heartbreaking to see Peyton in pain, sitting there with a gun shot in her leg, after just losing her mother to cancer and her question to lucas “if i tell you i love you will you hold it against me?” <3
When Rachel says to jimmy “700 days, that’s all high school is, out of 30,000 days, high school is only 700… can’t you see past that?” … it’s so sad. he shouldn’t had had to die, this shouldn’t have happened, it should NEVER have to happen. ever. These truly are just kids, you don’t have to grow up fast, stay young, and don’t sweat the small stuff and just know IT GETS BETTER.
Major spoiler ahead just in case.
When Jimmy shoots himself.. there aren’t any words and then losing Keith.. keith who finally got his life together, finally got Karen, … and Dan using Jimmy as the scapegoat. it’s just horrible. HORRIBLE. I mean it does lessen the reality of the shooting a bit,just because it adds a bit of that ”One tree hill” drama back in, but still… the fact that Jimmy gets held responsible, when in reality, he didn’t actually kill anyone, except himself.
i leave you with this, there is always another way, another day, don’t give up, don’t lose yourself in the darkness. Love is louder. <3
What is your favourite season of One tree hill? Why? go! :)
Would be new episodes of BTVS.
It’s been over 10 years since my all time favourite show finished airing new eps, sure we have the comics, but i truly would love to *see* everyone again, … even seeing the *kinda* recent panel reunion everyone did (Sarah included!) was just amazing. god lets get these crazy kids together again plz?
