WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Another milestone counting down to the end of an era here in Hollywood East. Today marked the start of the last five days of shooting for “One Tree Hill,” according to the show’s co-producer.

Black material covered the windows at the Karen’s Café set in downtown Wilmington as the cast and crew continued working on the show’s ninth and final season.

The end of the show has drawn plenty of fans to town, including one woman today who worked on a painting of storefront set.

At the “Evening with One Tree Hill” event last week, 12 cast members and creator Mark Schwahn fielded a variety of questions from a moderator and capacity crowd at UNCW’s Beckwith Recital Hall. The talked about what the show has meant to them, what they think of Wilmington, where “One Tree Hill” films, and what they’d be doing if they weren’t acting.

But when talk turned to the upcoming ninth and final season, things turned cryptic.

Moderator Renee Vincent, a UNCW professor who has guest starred on the show, asked each of the cast members to sum up their character’s experiences in the final season in one word.

The results range from obvious to silly, random to deep.

One Tree Hill season 9 sneak peek: Body bags, beat downs and burning buildings

At the very end of “An Evening with One Tree Hill,” a special celebration the show put on for fans at the University of North Carolina Wilmington tonight, those fans got the first look at “One Tree Hill’s” ninth season.

Shantel Van Santen (Quinn) introduced what Mark Schwahn later explained was the opening moments of the season’s first episode. Here’s a quick recap:

SPOILERS. DON’T KEEP READING IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW! BUT YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO

As Nathan (James Lafferty) narrates, the episode opens on the image of a burning building. Who’s house is it? It’s unclear, at least to me. It kind of look’s like the dive Dan worked at. And speaking of… Next we see Dan (Paul Johansson) in a car loading a gun. He’s talking with the person in the passenger seat about killing someone. That person is Chris Keller (Tyler Hilton).

Cut to a shot of Chase (Stephen Colletti) in the backseat of a police car. Has he been arrested? What for? He doesn’t look happy.

Next up are Clay (Rob Buckley) and Quinn, who are arguing something fierce. Clay yells, “It’s not that I don’t need you here. It’s that I don’t want you here!” Ouch.

We then see Brooke (Sophia Bush) trashing what appears to be Karen’s Cafe (UPDATE: but fans tell me it’s a rival cafe that opens up this season), knocking over chairs and throwing stuff on the ground. She’s mad? Distraught? Over what? Maybe it has something to do with a scene we see later, in which Julian (Austin Nichols) is getting the snot beat out of him.

But the scene that had all the fans in the audience gasping involved Haley (Bethany Joy Galeotti), slowly walking through a morgue, approaching a body covered by a white sheet. A cornoner (or somebody) lifts up a sheet so she can see the person lying there. And when she does, Haley just loses it, her face full of anguish. Who could it be? Nathan? Dan?

Are all of these moments taken from different moments in the season? Will we be flashing back to see what leads up to these moments? For those answers, we have to stay tuned. But if there were any doubts that “One Tree Hill” could still keep fans engaged in season nine, this trailer did a pretty good job of dismissing them.

What do you think? Who do you think is under the sheet? Who is Dan trying to kill or protect? Let the wild speculation commence!
