He will be threatening someone's life but at least he won't be threatening the life of a family member.
- Ausiello reveals that "When Clay starts to sleepwalk, his attempt to remedy the situation (hint: illegal drugs!) puts Quinn in harm’s way (hint: gun gets pointed at her!). Elsewhere, after Julian forgets one of the twins in the car, Brooke is going to react in a big way".
- TVGuide tells us that "Clay is going spend a significant amount of time with a shrink this season after he suffers some unexplained blackouts. The good news: The therapist is an old friend, having helped Clay through his grief after Sara's death. The bad news: Fixing this current problem might require Clay admitting himself to the loony bin."

- Pierce Gagnon will be playing Logan, a smart for his age (6 years old), optimistic and wide-eyed kid. Logan has had a difficult childhood but looks on the bright side of things.
- Dax Griffin will be playing Chuck's Dad on a recurring role.
- Still no news on if Chad Michael Murray or Hilarie Burton will be back but Murray tellsE!Online,
