awww. this thread is to appreciate Peyton in season 5, why we gotta bring in the hate? makes me sad.
Anyways, I definitely agree about Peyton in season 5. With the first two posts. LOL. Peyton was definitely my favorite this season. I mean, I loved her in season 1, but I felt like she was more well rounded in this season. She made a LOT of mistakes and she was acting selfish at times, but I feel like Lucas was REALLY giving her mixed signals and it would have sucked to be in that position. And I think her mistakes really made her more human and more relatable. And even though she can be a bitch, to me its obvious that at the core shes a good person and she doesnt genuinely try to hurt anyone. At least not intentionally.
I wasnt a huge fan of peyton in seasons 2/6/4, even parts of 3, because she was too happy and almost too nice. She became sort of a push over, and that just wasnt who she was when the show started. So it was really nice to see some of that fire and spark back.
I do think she needed to apologize to Lindsey for how she treated her, but I feel like Lucas and Lindsey also had some apologizing to do for their actions and we never got that from them, which was disappointing. The girls were just being catty/jealous of each other, but Lucas was really the one at fault, leading one on when he was in love with the other. (and interpret that whichever way you want.) He was clearly confused and trying to have his cake and eat it too.
