Laetitia from Paris: Salut, Kristin, I heard that Peyton from One Tree Hill is gonna lose her baby in a car crash? She’s my favorite character. Please tell me it’s not true.
I love that your favorite character is one you haven’t even met yet! I have a soft spot for Peyton and Lucas’ spawn, too. (Or wait, did you mean Peyton is your fave?) Anyhoo, regardless, a source tells me this: “There is a car crash, but Peyton will not lose the baby because of that. She will be OK. But so far we don’t know if the baby lives or dies yet in the finale.” Ugh. Have your family-sized Kleenex box standing by, just in case!
(Contains spoilers) Reading about the impending demise of TV characters can sometimes make a viewer numb. But the reality is, writing teams often use an unexpected death to shake up a series and produce an emotional response—both on-screen and in your living room. As we near the second half of this season, several CW shows will tread down that one-way path, including One Tree Hill, Supernatural and 90210. Only one of the three departing faces has been uncovered online, so fans are free to speculate about the identities of the “beloved” characters who’ll exit Supernatural on March 12 and 90210 on May 12. At least two of these deaths are being described as “major.” Any guesses?
