'One Tree Hill' scoop: Big twist will cause return of 'old Nathan,' says James Lafferty

Ish is about to hit the fan, Hill fans, and trust me when I say you want to be around to see it happen.

Back in March, before One Tree Hill took a six-week break, from which it returned last night, we found out that Professor Kellerman’s young son — and now Nathan’s young star talent — was involved in the crash that nearly claimed the life of Nathan’s son. And even though last night’s ep focused on a lot of baby drama, Nathan’s work has only begun.

“I think Nathan’s gotten himself into something here,” says Lafferty. “I think he feels like he has to do some detective work. Whether or not he should be taking it upon himself remains to be seen. He definitely is going to pursue the truth, and I think it’s possible he will bite off more than he can chew.”

And a warning to the Kellermans… and anyone else involved: Nathan’s ready for a fight.

“It’s definitely possible that a little bit of the old Nathan could come out. Nathan’s been known to lose his temper,” Lafferty teases. “At the same time, he’s also learned a lot. I think fans can definitely expect some sort of confrontation, but with who and how will definitely be a bit of a surprise for them.”
