Lucas and Peyton were not my favorite characters or my favorite couple but I liked them, just as I like almost every character on the show. I think the show without them is not the same. I only watched 7 episodes of the season 7 and I like it, I mean it's okay. But the show is weird without them. And I find it weird how they didn't even say goodbye. We don't know anything about Leyton's departure. And it's like they have been replaced by Clay and Quinn and that Haley, Brooke and Nathan almost forgot them. I thought maybe we could have scenes where IDK they mention them or they have news from them so we can know a little more about their new life. It's a little like the 3 old main characters don't miss Leyton. I am glad when they are mentioned like in the first episode when Jamie opens his present from his uncle, or in the episode 2 when Haley needs her friends, so she imitates them as if she was talking to them, and sometimes we can see pictures of them like on Naley's fridge. Hopefully there are some things which prove that Leyton were important in this show. Like I said they weren't my favorites but I still feel “sad” about Lucas and Peyton leaving the show, leaving their friends and their family, letting us without any explanations.
