Ew...no. I liked Rachel and loved Nathan but just no. I don't think I would've been against her being one of his random hookups before Naley in s1 but in S4, just no. Also even though it was a the season b4 in tree hill time, it had only been like a week or so after he and haley renewed their vows so at that time it just would not hav
e made sense for the character. He was so in love with Haley at that time. Also, do people remember what Rachel was lying to him about? He was troubled about almost dying and seeing his dead uncle and she was using that to get into his pants. Yea, great relationship there.
I love Nathan all the time, but my fav Nathan is prob s1 Nathan. I always liked the Nathan that was only nice to Haley. Badboy nahtan was entertaining. I don't Haley is to blame for him losing his edge at all, I don't know why he turned into such a good guy.
And also I don't think Naley's relationship was all that unrealistic. The hs I went to wasn't super cliquey, though so may be thats why I feel that. Alot of the jocks were smart. It wasn't the popular crowd and all the nerds. So thats why i didn't find their relationship unrealistic.
