"One Tree Hill" ended almost two months ago, but we’re still not really over it. This weekend, Zap2it attended the ATX Festival, a weekend-long celebration of all things television in Austin, Texas. While we managed to resist presenting executive producer Mark Schwahn with a mason jar filled with our finale tears, we couldn’t help but ask him about a few of the show’s loose ends.
One of our favorite secondary characters of the series, Rachel (Danneel Ackles), wasn’t mentioned in the final season, despite her significant contribution to the Tree Hill mythology. Though she did go through an unfortunate junkie phase, Schwahn tells us that in his mind, Rachel landed on her feet.
