one tree hill: question

I have a question about season two of One Tree Hill.

When Jake and Peyton leave (I think it's in the episode The Heart Brings You Back, though I'm not 100% sure), to get Jenny back, how old is Jenny Jagielski? Just a rough estimate of how old she is in the first half of season two would really help me out.

Also, for the same episode, does anyone know which season it is? Like, summer, fall, etc? I can remember Jake and Peyton wearing jackets when they reunite in the previous episode, so maybe it's fairly cool, but knowing a little better would help me out.

Thanks muchly for your help!

Season One and Season Two are part of the same school year just as Season Three and Season Four are. So 1&2, the main gang (Lucas, Peyton, Nathan, Haley, Brooke, etc.) are juniors and in 3&4 they're seniors.

Therefore, it's really just been a couple of months since Jake left at the end of season 1. Because basketball season ended in the season 1 finale, I'd say that probably happened in February(?). People with a knowledge of high school sports seasons can be more exact with that.

I haven't watched seasons 1 and 2 in a few years now, so I don't know if they say from episode to episode how long it's been (ie 'ohmygod how much did I drink last night?'). But it's probably sometime in the spring.

You really can't judge the time of year by what the characters are wearing or even simple things like the weather because of the fact that they divided each school year into two seasons and filming in North Carolina where the seasons change so obviously which is why it's a bit difficult to say exactly when it is.

As far as how old Jenny is... I would say rewatch the scene in "To Wish Impossible Things" when Jake has Nikki go in the store and buy a bunch of stuff for her because I'm pretty sure he says something like 'she's ____ old, she can't have that!' Right now I really wish I had a transcript that I could look through to find it but my old resource is no longer in existence and I don't know where to look and I don't have the episode handy.

I hope I've helped some and that you can figure out Jenny's age and such from this and things the characters have said!

Oh, thank you so much! I've set my fic in early spring so what you just said makes me feel a whole let better about that ;-) It doesn't really matter, but the closer I can get things to canon, the happier I am. ♥

And thank you for the tip! I remember that scene but I can't remember the exact dialogue. I'll try to sit down and watch it so I can put another little detail into my fic!

Thank you so much for your help :) ♥
