Isn't that what you said, though? So, I'm sorry if I misunderstood you. But that post above clearly says--the WHOLE episode was dedicated with EVERYONE being there to support her. So, I apologize if I misunderstood, but I was just going by what you said in the above post!
Ok sorry, I guess I worded that wrong. I didn't mean that the whole ep was dedicated to Haley (which is kind of what I said but I didn't mean
to say lol) I just basically meant that everyone was there for Haley (not just there in the hospital but there emotionally supporting her... I can't really explain it but yeah) throughout the ep. Not that all the storylines were just solely on Lydia's birth.
And first off, I did read your posts correctly. What I responded to--wasn't directed completely towards you. My very first post wasn't directed solely towards YOU except for one little line, and I didn't even quote you because I couldn't remember who said it. And I didn't care to go back through and look. I was mainly just agreeing with what someone else had posted before me. I was just stating my opinion on the subject matter as you did.
I know you didn't mean to particularly pick on me or whatever for saying that, but I just felt I should defend WHY I compared Haley's pregnancy to Brooke's since I was first one to make the comparison.
And I'm sorry, but I don't think Haley's pregnancy storyline has anything to do with Brooke's pregnancy storyline. They are two separate characters who had two different pregnancies. And I never said you couldn't post what you did because I disagree with your POV. I just didn't think your comparison made any sense, and I (personally) didn't feel it was right to have a comparison between the two pregnancies--let me just clear that up! Feel free to post whatever, because at this point, I don't care. And I'm sorry if you feel like all of my posts have been attacking you (which btw, they weren't!). I could say the same for yours against mine as well, because I was just stating my opinion on the subject matter as well and what I didn't agree with! And I also apologized for what I did misunderstand, and that's that!
I know that the pregnancies have nothing to do with one another. All I'm saying is that I would have liked Brooke's pregnancy to be a bit more like Haley's! That's all.
I'm also sorry if you feel like my posts were attacking you, I just feel like I wanted to defend what I was saying and make it clear so that I wasn't being misunderstood.
No. Her story should have been the ultimate build up, she was the first one in season 5 as an adult to express wanting a child. Angie was decent, Sam was okay...but it got repetitive already, adopting and losing. Then she randomly finds out she can't have kids, which was adressed for only an episode or two, then swept under the rug. Hardly ANY talk of even having a baby for a long time, then after yet another slew of sex scenes, a serious discussion about adoption? Within the next few episodes once again plans are made and lost with the Chloe adoption. And then the ultimate cliche and predicable path-miracle babies. The pregnancy spanned over an episode and turned into twin boys! Fail fail fail. But that's pretty much how I felt about Brooke and BJu in seasons 7&8 in general.
I actually kind of liked the way they found out. It was random, but that whole coda was epic. I just liked that there was a big moment of reveal. But even the explanation of why they were staying in Tree Hill and the reaction was just eh. They could have still had that moment some other way. Having multipes was cute, but they could have done more with that if they had given the pregnancy more time. And I would've loved IF they were going to give Brooke a biological child if she did fertility treatments and that's how she got multiples. Or the adoption could've been really touching. If they would've picked one road and stuck to it, it could have been amazing.
Exactly! When we found out that she couldn't have kids I really wanted it to be explored in more depth. It seemed like it was just use to further along the Alex/Julian storyline at first, when I really wanted to find out WHY and see her deal with it a bit more I guess. Instead, we just saw Brooke deal with the whole Alex/Julian drama whereas I would have loved to have seen her deal with not being able to have children a bit more. It's just like she sort of accepted it fairly quickly without much explanation.
And exactly, I think if they were going to follow through with the Brooke adoption storyline then I would have been fine with that. But it didn't follow through!
I would have MUCH rather have had Brooke trying for IVF (great idea btw) and then getting pregnant, rather than the adoption storyline and then suddenly just not getting the kid (again) and BAM she's pregnant! It would have been great and really emotional if they went down the whole IVF route... this is a sidenote but I know someone who is trying for IVF at the moment with such a slim chance of it actually working and who has had to go through an emotional struggle of trying many times and paying a lot of money for the treatment etc. It would have been GREAT to see that play out on screen with Brooke, rather than the whole adoption thing where you kind of knew something wasn't right (as it was all going too smoothly for OTH and felt very rushed!). I totally agree with your last line about 'picking one road and sticking to it'. That's exactly how I feel. The pregnancy and everything to do with Brooke not being able to have kids etc was just a bit all over the place.
