The past finally seems to catch up with the characters of One Tree Hill in Season 9. Clay learns he has a 6 year old son that his memory blocked out after the death of his wife. X is released on parole and Brooke struggles to deal with running into him everywhere. Dan hopes to reconnect to his family and struggles to redeem himself as his past crimes have not been forgotten by his family or the town.
Something not many people know about me is that I have an ex boyfriend who spent time in prison. Not the best time of my life, although the lessons I learned from that experience have made me far stronger than I’d thought I could be. It isn’t something I’m proud of and I long ago lost contact with him but sometimes, the thought of him “finding” me or contacting me gives me pause. The thought of living near to where he does and having the possibility of running into someone like that while going about day to day living just would make me miserable, and watching Brooke deal with X being released really drove that point home to me. Thankfully, he’s not aware of where I live and I legally took my stepfather’s last name after we broke up, so I’m not worried.
Do you have mistakes from your past you just really hope do not come back to haunt you?
