I was a bit annoyed it was rushed through two episodes - not because I want to see a pregnant Brooke preparing for a baby, but because BJu's pregnancy was probably pretty much the main reason the finale spanned over a year, and I didn't really like that. I think it would have had a lot more emotion and heart and it would have just been a better episode if it had been in one time, not over a year. I love Brooke and Julian and I'm really glad they had twins and we got to see them with their children, and I'm not trying to ~blame BJu for the finale being like that, but it is a shame that we got a rushed, unexplained miracle pregnancy instead of the adoption storyline or Brooke being pregnant earlier on in the season. If she'd been pregnant a bit earlier we could've seen more pregnant Brooke, it wouldn't have been as rushed and maybe the finale could have just had one flashforward at the end to show them with their babies.
As for the comparison to Haley's pregnancy... I agree with the people saying that it got plenty of focus. The fact she was pregnant was brought up a lot, she had some hormones and there was the episode where she tricked everyone, etc etc. So that was good and it's a shame for people who wish Brooke could have gotten a bit more stuff like that. And yeah, it was Nathan and Haley's relationship that was in the background this season, not Haley's pregnancy itself. I think everyone in here agrees on that. But... that's kind of the thing: it was all about Haley being pregnant, not Haley AND Nathan being pregnant. Pretty stupid that the season NH get little focus is the season where they're pregnant. Nathan should have been involved a lot more... not because NH fans just wanted coupley scenes, but because it's common sense. He's the dad. Nathan really wanted another baby, especially a girl, and now that she was pregnant with a girl he was barely there? They hardly even discussed the pregnancy other than episodes 1 and 16. Their scenes acknowledged the fact she was pregnant every now and again, but that was really it. It was more "Haley is pregnant" than "we are about to have another baby", which I just found pretty annoying. Yeah, she's pregnant, which means they're about to have another child, which is life changing. Scenes with them discussing/dealing with that would have been a lot more entertaining than some of the NH scenes we did get, or even better than Jamie/Madison shoelace drama or Chuck needing glasses drama or Mouth and Millie basically having the same scenes every episode about news reporting drama. I was especially annoyed we never saw Nathan's reaction to finding out it was a girl. =(
Sooo yeah, although Haley's pregnancy got focus, Nathan not being a part of it is a huge reason a lot of people don't think it was well portrayed. It's not like people just wanted Nathan to be there for the sake of more NH scenes, but for the fact he's the father. Brooke's pregnancy scenes in the finale - although rushed, which is a shame - included both her AND Julian being excited for the arrival of their children. This is really just the sort of simple (pretty obvious) thing NH fans wanted, and why many weren't satisfied with it. The father should be a part of it too, especially when it's been made clear for seasons that Nathan really wanted the little girl he was now getting.
